With a history dating
to the mid-1800s, this is one
of the oldest and most respected winemaking families of Piedmont.
Arneis is the main white grape in the Roero area northwest
of Alba. It gained DOCG recognition in 2006, the highest
official quality ranking among Italian wines. This is a terroir-driven
wine expressing an unrivaled fruitiness, delicate freshness,
and bracing mineral notes.
- Despite the name,
this crisp and lush rosé is 100% Garnacha, the grape
for which Campo de Borja is famous. Pretty salmon color in
the glass, with loads of floral and red berry aromas leading
to cherry, strawberry, and raspberry flavors on the palate.
The creamy mouthfeel shows hints of spice on the pleasantly
tart finish. Try it with the “Roasted Garlic” recipe from our Wines
- This wine derives
its name from the Piemontese dialect word grignole, meaning
grape seeds. The Grignolino grape has a lot of these seeds,
which are responsible for its great tannic structure. Intense,
refined and floral, with notes of cranberry, strawberries,
roses and a touch of spice. Dry and light-bodied, it is pleasantly
savory with a bright acidity. This is great companion for
light summer pasta salads.
- After Sangiovese
and Montepulciano, Barbera is the third most-planted red
grape variety in Italy. It is THE grape of Monferrato, dwelling
well on the sunny hillsides of this region. Intense and bright,
with notes of violet and maraschino cherries. Rich middle
notes remind of dates and figs. Powerful and fresh on the
palate, with white pepper and chocolate notes balanced on
a persistent finish.
- The Shiraz grapes
for this wine were harvested from a number of different vineyards
in the beautiful Margaret River region. Rich and spicy in
the nose, with dense dark cherry, blueberry and mixed red
berry fruits. This is a highly expressive wine with great
fruit concentration driven by mixed berries and dark, juicy
cherry fruit. Sweet, juicy tannins from the French oak, along
with hints of hazelnuts, toast, and white pepper. Yummy!
- The name comes
from the Inca word for the Milky Way's "river of stars," honoring
Elqui Valley’s reputation for having the world’s clearest
atmosphere. Made in a style similar to old world Italian
wines, this red blend
is a very fruit-driven wine that is juicy but not jammy.
Intense ripe blackberry and plum fruits with a touch of vanilla
and spice, pair with grilled meats and Mediterranean dishes.

The nose on this Willamette Valley Pinot is complex
with aromas of strawberry, cherry, blackberry,
dried fruit, dried flowers,
cedar and lilac. The strawberry note continues

Coming from a single plot located in Savigny-les-Beaune,
this French Pinot is a wine that expresses
all the aromas of its varietal in a simple way. Vinified
in open vats, fermentation
takes place over a week under closely
monitored temperature control. The wine is then placed
in barrels or vats
for an aging phase that lasts 12-18 months,
depending on the vintage. Soft and fruity, this is
a very versatile
food wine that is perfect for most occasions!
