2019 Piano dei Daini Etna Bianco

90% Carricante, 10% Cattarato, Inzolia & Grecanico

Etna, Italy


Dusty florals, crushed almonds, lemon confit and hints of yellow apple rise up from the 2019 Etna Bianco Piano dei Daini. It coats the palate in textural richness, and then washes it clean with a stimulating mix of vibrant acids, citrus and salty minerals. Tension builds through the finale, as the cheeks pucker to a sweet-and-sour display of green melon and lasting inner florals. The 2019 is beautiful already, but a year or two of cellaring will bring it fully into focus. A wonderful appetizer, but excellent with any fish that can support the zesty citrus fruit and acidity. Drinking window: 2022 – 2028. Certified Organic, Vegan Friendly and Unoaked.



2020 La Spinetta Toscana Vermentino

 100% Vermentino

Tuscany, Italy


Yellow straw with subtle green hues with a bouquet of citrus, almond and wildflowers. On the palate, it’s fresh and firm, with aromas of thyme and marjoram. The finish is long and mineral. Alcoholic fermentation with natural yeasts. Aging of about 3 months in steel tanks on its lees.

Sustainable farming. Unoaked.



2021 La Spinetta Il Rosé di Casanova

50% Sangiovese, 50% Prugnolo Gentile

Terriccola, Tuscany, Italy


The Il Rosé di Casanova is lovely with a bouquet that’s more savory than

sweet, mixing crushed rocks with white strawberries and peach skins. While soothingly soft, there’s a salty core of minerality and vibrant acidity that creates a juicy and energetic expression, further accentuated by hints of sour melon. The 2021 tapers off remarkably fresh with a candied citrus twang and leaves the mouthwatering for more. The Il Rosé di Casanova is an equal-parts blend of Sangiovese and Prugnolo Gentile. Sustainable farming. Unoaked.


2018 Piano dei Daini Etna Rosso

90% Nerello Mascalese, 10% Nerello Cappuccio

Etna, Italy


Zippy citrus fruit, white peaches and white flowers intermingled by mineral notes. This is really fresh, characterized by a wonderful level of acidity. The finish is sapid and long. After malolactic fermentation, the wine ages in neutral French oak tonneau for 10 months then in steel vats. A wonderful appetizer, but excellent with any fish that can support the zesty citrus fruit and acidity.

Certified Organic. Vegan Friendly.



2018 SCEG Aglianico del Vulture

100% Aglianico del Vulture

Basilicata, Italy


Intense ruby color with strong garnet reflections. Ample and complex perfume, decidedly mineral, fruity and ethereally youthful with clear spice hints. Aroma provokes strong sensation of cherry, currant, rosemary, tobacco and cinnamon. Has a dry, warm flavor, broad structure and persistent, aromatic and long finish. Wine of strong personality, representative of its territory and destined to have a great future!

Alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation takes place in new tonneau for 12 months. Then, the wine is aged for 6 months in bottle before release.



2018 La Spinetta Casanova Chianti Reserva

100% Sangiovese

Chianti, Tuscany, Italy


The Chianti Riserva is 100% Sangiovese from old vines (30 years), lending concentration and density. A welcome diversion from the textbook Chianti of the past, this is a surprising wine of personality and character with rich, saturated color and aromas of dark fruit, leather, wet earth and spicy overtones of cinnamon and clove. This Chianti is aged in large oak casks, imparting a broad and bold structure, yet the wine remains silky and aromatically precise at the same time. Sustainable farming.

In 1250 AD - The Knights Templar built their compound of buildings known as ‘'La Commanderie'' in the heart of the surrounding farm fields.

Strawberries and other red fruits are noticeable, along with notes of watermelon, peach and Citrus fruit. Hints of rose petals, spices and grass set interesting accents on the palate. Above all, there is a radiant minerality and fresh tartaric acidity, which are pleasantly contrasted by a silky-smooth nature. The wine finishes refreshingly with citrus tones.

Brunn practices traditional fermentation in small tanks using native yeasts to enhance the

NV Kilda Brut

80% Chardonnay & 20% Pinot Noir

South Eastern Australia


Very pale straw appearance with aromas of fresh cut lemon and subtle green apple surrounded by rising dough. A generous mousse reveals a quite tight and complex palate of fresh buttered toast and a citrus freshness. Sustainable practices.

About the Cap:

Benefits include ease of use, reseal-ability, less waste, and more efficiency. The bottle features an easy to open screw cap and even easier to re-seal. The closure is called ‘Viiva’ and is the world’s first

screw cap for high pressure sparkling wine. Viiva means ‘alive’ and this specially designed

closure will maintain pressure and keep the wine bubbly up to 21 days after opening. It is exclusive to Australia and New Zealand, so no Proseccos or domestic sparkling wines are using a similar closure.



2021 Amity White Pinot Noir

 100% Pinot Noir

 Eola-Amity Hills, Willamette Valley, Oregon


The Amity White Pinot Noir was sourced from a mix of vineyards located predominately in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA of the Willamette Valley. The fruit was picked in the cool early morning and gently pressed to minimize color and tannin extraction yet provide the subtle layers of tart and juicy fruit. After settling for 24 hours, the juice is cleanly racked and fermented in a stainless-steel tank. We age this wine sur lie to create generous yet soft texture, and provide balance to its mouthwatering finish. Notes of pear, orange blossom, and linen. Aged in stainless steel, unoaked.



2018 Enemigo Chardonnay

2020 One Stone Cabernet Sauvignon

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Paso Robles, Central Coast, California

N/V Roederer Estate California Brut

60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir

Anderson Valley, California


The current release of the NV Estate Brut is made up mainly of fruit from the 2015 vintage. It is a blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir and was made with about ten grams per liter dosage. Disgorged in October of 2018, it has a fresh, open nose with pure fruit expression: crushed apples, pears and lemon peel mingle with touches of stone, flowers and toast. The medium-bodied palate offers a lovely dichotomy of toasty fruits with uplifted citrusy, minerally accents with a finely beaded mousse, and it finishes long and ultra fresh.



2019 Pieropan Soave

 85% Garganega & 15% Trebbiano

Soave Classico DOC, Veneto, Italy


The 2019 Pieropan Soave is a brilliant straw yellow color with greenish hints. The delicate nose is reminiscent of almond blossoms and marzipan. Good depth of fruit on the palate, nicely balanced by a zingy acidity that enhances its long length. The wine remains in glass-lined cement tanks on the fine lees for a period which varies according to the vintage. In the spring following the harvest the wine is bottled and then released after at least a further month in bottle.


2017 Wonderment Sauvignon Blanc

100% Sauvignon Blanc

Hyde Vineyard, Carneros, Napa Valley, California


Right in step with Wonderment’s first-rate 2016 effort from the same site, this year’s version is a very well-crafted, explicitly varietal effort that brings together elements of citrus, ripe melons, peaches, fresh herbs and a deft bit of creamy oak in a deep and seamlessly married mix. It is moderately full-bodied and slightly fleshy in feel with neatly placed acidity affording it plenty of life, and, as was the case with its predecessor, it is a beautifully balanced wine that, while delicious right now, has all of the right pieces in place to guarantee a good half-decade or more of positive growth.


2020 Gallica Cabernet Franc

100% Cabernet Franc

Napa Valley AVA, California


Tasty and meant for immediate enjoyment all summer long. We fermented Cabernet Franc gently, taking some liberty with traditional carbonic methods along with minimal intervention. Inspired by the wines of Chinon and Morgon but uniquely from California. Every decision from picking through bottling was designed to show off the beauty of cabernet franc. Oak free and medium in body, the wine is deceptively complex. Fresh roses, ripe and aromatic blackberry with notes of graphite and a hint of cool cedar. Easily paired with an array of food choices from simple green olives, lemon roasted chicken, a young Gouda, to mushroom filled Asian dumplings. We recommend cellar temperature or even slightly chilled for serving.



2019 Can Blau Cellars ‘Can Blau’ Rosso

40% Cariñena, 40% Syrah, 20% Garnacha

Monstant DO, Spain


Bright purple. Spice-accented black and blue fruit aromas are complemented by violets and woodsmoke. Round and seamless on the palate, offering juicy blackberry and cassis flavors that are lifted and formed by zesty acidity. The finish is framed by gentle, harmonious tannins, with very good breadth, thrust and persistence. Aged 12 months in French oak.



2019 Amizetta Tradition Napa Red Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Syrah, & Petit Verdot

Napa Valley, California


A lush full-bodied wine with aromatic notes of dark cherry cobbler, Santa Rosa plums and ripe bramble berries. The French oak barrels add subtle accents of French vanilla and toasted caramel on the palate. A luxurious body with smooth satin tannins providing a long, lingering finish. Aged in 55% new French oak barrels, aged 18 months.

2020 Peay Vineyards CEP Sauvignon Blanc
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Hopkins Ranch Vineyard, Russian River Valley AVA, Sonoma, California
Nick and Vanessa met Bob Hopkins a few years ago at an Integrated Pest Management class. As organic farmers you attend IPM classes to learn how to attract beneficial pests that will combat nasty insects in the vineyard. That way you can avoid pesticides. Nick took a shine to Bob and mentioned that his brother wanted to make crisp, minerally, zippy Sauvignon Blanc, but, of course, we cannot grow Sauvignon Blanc at our very cold estate vineyard. Bob was kind enough to offer us Sauvignon Blanc from his blocks of 40-year-old vines. And the result is – uniquely delicious. This is not the Bordeaux style of Sauvignon Blanc that Vanessa made when she was winemaker at Peter Michael where there is barrel aging and often Semillon in the blend. On the contrary, the grapes are picked to capture the citrus, green papaya, lemon blossom, chalky side of Sauvignon Blanc. It is tank fermented to retain acidity and freshness and bottled in the December following vintage. Organic.
2018 Pra Monte Grande Soave Classico
70% Garganega & 30% Trebbiano
Soave Classico DOC, Veneto, Italy
Hand harvested. Practicing organic. Age of vines 30 to 60 years. The stems of the Garganega are snipped when the grapes are ripe and left to slightly raisinate in the vineyard for one month. The Trebbiano di Soave is harvested earlier and adds freshness to the Garganega. The 2018 Soave Classico Monte Grande is intense, wafting up masses of crushed stone and mineral tones, dusty florals and notes of green apple. The textures are enveloping, soft and smooth, supported by stimulating acidity and minerals, while ushering in orchard fruits but also a hint of tart tropical citrus, which adds an exotic note. That said, the Monte Grande is more savory than sweet, with an herbal twang through the finale, complemented by hints of raw almond. This is vinified all in stainless steel, mixing 70% overripe Garganega with 30% Trebbiano di Soave, which balances with its elevated acidity, creating a gorgeous expression of Soave.
2020 Peay Vineyards CEP Rosé
100% Pinot Noir
Hopkins Ranch Vineyard, Russian River Valley AVA, Sonoma, California
We love “true” Rosé. By that, we do not mean that ubiquitous dark colored, low acid, high alcohol dreck littering shelves. That style of Rosé is often a by-product from bleeding off juice (a process called saigneé) to concentrate the remaining Grenache, Syrah, Pinot noir, or another red wine that remains in the tank. In any event, that style of Rosé is not what we find interesting. We want refreshing, crisp, bright Rosé that has verve, pairs well with spring and summer cuisine, and you can enjoy without having to pick yourself up off the lawn. That is the Cep Rosé in a nutshell. It is made from Pinot noir grown at Hopkins Ranch in the heart of the Russian River Valley. It is rare to find a true Rosé made from Pinot noir as it is a very expensive grape to grow and buy and you cannot charge much for domestic Rosé (with a few notable exceptions). We pick it early, press it off to tank, and bottle it in December. It has a little kiss of strawberry juicy fruit and watermelon on entry and is loaded with acidity, minerality and depth on the palate.
2020 Kir-Yianni Akakies Sparkling Rosé
100% Xinomavro
PDO Amyndeon, Greece
Deep bright rose color. Overabundant bubbles pointing out the wonderful smells of Xinomavro. Enticing aromas of wild strawberries, mellow cherries and ruby tomato. Hearty to taste, with perky acidity and long-lasting sweet taste, every bubble comes as an explosion to the aforementioned characteristics. Uniquely tasteful, having a bright balance between acidity and sugars. Excellent pair with Mediterranean cuisine, spicy dishes of the Asian cuisine and oily fishes. It can also be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif or
after a meal.

2019 Peay Vineyards “Pomarium” Pinot Noir
100% Pinot Noir
Sonoma Coast AVA, California
The 2019 moves along that progression even more rapidly due to the moderate, cool weather and Pomarium emphasizes red fruits and floral lift over extract and density. There is a livelier note in the 2019 with red fruits peeking out instead of the usual black fruits. The palate is velvety and floral aromas of jasmine tea and rose dance around a supple mid-palate. It is not as large framed or compact as Pomarium often presents and is drinking very well right now as the empty bottle at our tasting bore evidence. This is a wine you can enjoy now and be very happy to have opened but you can also age it for as long as you desire to see what develops in bottle.
2015 Mayacamas Merlot
98% Merlot & 2% Cabernet Franc
Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley, California
The 2015 Mayacamas Merlot is luscious yet structured. The vines benefited from a pronounced maritime influence as a result of salty evening breezes off the San Pablo Bay. The wine is well structured–poised between fine tannins and velvety fruit. 2015 was blessedly uneventful, the fifth consecutive outstanding vintage for the Napa Valley. Summer was consistently hot and dry without extreme heat and we enjoyed a gentle harvest. The wine spent a total of 30 months in neutral oak foudre and barrels, softening slowly before bottling. Our 2015 Merlot features dynamic red fruit balanced by savory notes and Mount Veeder's tell-tale fine tannins. The palate is medium bodied with notes of fresh plum jam and black tea. Bright acidity and elegant structure predict a 20-year drinking window

2017 Castellroig Corpinnat Cava Brut Nature
Xarel-lo, Macabeo, Parellada
Corpinnat, Spain

Lemon-lime aromas are slightly briny and dusty. This brut nature sparkler carries the new Corpinnat designation, meaning it's no longer Cava. On the palate it is clean and medium in body. Orange and citrus-peel flavors are direct but limited in depth and complexity. Zero residual sugar, so bone dry.

2020 Barnett Sauvignon Blanc
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Dry Creek Valley AVA, Sonoma, California
This light straw gold wine is bursting with aromatics. Loaded with passionfruit and honeydew melon the nose turns to lime zest and white pepper. The wine is quite lush for Sauvignon blanc, with lemon custard and kiwi on the palate. Bright acidity balances out the lushness and the wine finishes with a myriad of tropical fruit. This wine has always been at its best in its youth. 100% Tank fermented. 14.2% ABV Unoaked.

2020 Chateau Saint Honore 'La Londe' Provence Rose
54% Grenache, 46% Cinsault
Côtes de Provence AOP Cru Classé, France

This noble vineyard surrounded by vines and delicately nestled between hills and sun, offers a typical seaside Rosé. The nose is delicate and fruity with aromas of banana and peach. The palate is fresh and crisp, but nevertheless rich with acidulated aromas persistent throughout the tasting. Fermentation in concrete vats at a controlled temperature. Unoaked.

2018 Trentadue La Storia Cuvee 32 Estate Red
45% Sangiovese, 31% Montepulciano, & 24% Merlot
Geyserville, California 
Our 2018 Cuvee 32 is the 21st vintage of this blend for Trentadue Winery. In retrospect our “Super Tuscan” blend has been highly successful and consistently our top selling wine in the Tasting Room. Every vintage has uniquely different blend determined by the best expression of its components and how they work together. Our young Montepulciano has become an important player in the blend as well as our Brunello Clone Sangiovese. The 2018 vintage produced wines with dark red color, bright fruit and firm acidity and well-structured tannins destined to age well. The 2018 Cuvee 32 has intense cherry/cassis aromas contributed by the Sangiovese followed by deeper red fruit aromas of plums, blueberry, and a hint of pomegranate. Typical for the blend is an enticing mixture of herbs and spices making the wine particularly enjoyable with Italian style food. With more air the wine shows more complex yet still in developing stage aromas and flavors of cocoa, cinnamon, leather, and black licorice. The mouth feel is medium to full with relatively high, food friendly acidity and a long and fresh finish.
2016 Italics Sixteen Appellations Red
67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
Napa Valley, California

Truly one of a kind and only found in our portfolio.  The 2016 Sixteen Appellations is a wine full of fruit and bright acidity, pairing each AVA to bring together Napa Valley in a bottle.  Notes of black cherry, plum, rhubarb, and cassis.  Hints of chocolate, vanilla and nutmeg round the palate. Enjoy tonight with braised meats or cellar for 7-10 years. 14.6% ABV.
NV Trentadue Chocolate Amore
100% Merlot & Natural Chocolate Essence
Alexander Valley, California
"We produce this opulent dessert wine from Merlot grapes grown on our Geyserville Ranch. Borrowing from the traditions of port making, we add neutral grape spirits to stop fermentation trapping a percentage of sugar in the wine. Once Chocolate Amore is finished aging and is ready for bottling, we infuse a tiny amount of natural chocolate extract to the final blend, creating the perfect marriage of food and wine. This Merlot-based, port-styled chocolate flavored dessert wine is great over vanilla ice cream or as a stand-alone dessert."

2015 Tenuta di Capraia Chianti Classico Riserva

100% Sangiovese

Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG, Italy


Tenuta di Capraia Riserva is a deep red-colored wine. The sensory associations that it evokes are complex and highly refined, gradually fading from fruity to spices and licorice. On the palate it is meaty, harmonious and very thick with a long aromatic finish. Aged at least 15 months in typical Chianti barrels and tonneaux, then at least 6 months in steel and 1 year in the bottle.

94 Points James Suckling



2018 Prà Monte Grande Soave Classico

100% Garganega

Soave DOC, Valpolicella, Italy


The Prà winery, although only started in the early ‘80s, has become not only one of the top producers in the appellation, but one of the most important and visionary white wine makers in all of Italy. With a hint of white peach and aromas of passionfruit, this wine tempts the senses as it is poured from the bottle. On the palate, a prickly mineral texture coalesces with luscious fruit into a long finish.



2013 Tolaini Legit Cabernet Sauvignon

100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Tuscany, Italy


Legit is a wine of power and finesse, an organically-farmed Cabernet Sauvignon made from hand-picked grapes grown in the prized San Giovanni Vineyard in the heart of Catelnuovo Berardenga. Here the gently sloping Tuscan vineyard and its gnarled vines mimic the angular melodies and dissonant twists of Thelonious Monk’s great masterpieces. This is broad and incisive, delivering black currant, plum, leather, earth and wild herb flavors. Dense and beefy, yet with ample fruit for balance, driven by vibrant acidity. This is starting to mellow but still has years of life ahead. Drink now through 2036. 15,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.

2014 Jermann Vintage Tunina

Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia

Friuli Venzia Giulia IGT, Italy


It should be noted that this is a genuine field blend. It has a brilliant straw-yellow colour with golden highlights. Its aroma is intense, full, with enormous elegance and persistence, and with hints of honey and wild flowers. Its taste is dry, velvety, and very well-orchestrated, with an exceptional persistence due to its particularly full body. It is paired with truffled first courses, with a great variety of fish dishes, especially oven-baked fish and fish in sauce, and it can easily be drunk with white meats. The shelf life of this wine is expected to be up to 10 years.

96 points James Suckling



2011 Poderi Elia Barbaresco Serracapelli

100% Nebbiolo

Barbaresco DOCG, Piemonte, Italy

From the heart of Barbaresco country in Neive comes this stunningly elegant Barbaresco from Poderi Elia. The Stella family has been making wine since 1890, but only recently have garnered international attention–it is easy to understand why. This spectacular Barbaresco bouquet offers tones of red currant and Morello cherry over a layer of toasty oak; the structure is marble-solid, with fine grained tannins that perfectly compliment the Nebbiolo fruit. Aged 24 months in French Allier and 10 months in bottle.



2014 Giuseppi Lonardi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico

75% Corvina and Corvinone, 20% Rondinella, 5% Croatina

Valpolicella DOCG, Veneto, Italy


Harvesting of selected grapes, left to dry for about 90 days. Fermentation in steel tanks lasts 30 days, pumping over the must at controlled temperature. Aging for 36 months in traditional 5 and 25 hectoliters barrels made from French and Slovenian oak, refinement in bottles for 6 months. Color: deep garnet. Nose: very intense, characteristic. Taste: full, warm, velvety with hints of ripe fruit and woodland undergrowth. An outstanding wine for aging, which may be served up to 8/15 years from the harvest.



2012 Martoccia Brunello di Montalcino Riserva DOCG

100% Sangiovese

Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy


Brunello di Montalcino is surely one of the most well-known and treasured wines in the world. It is a red wine of extraordinary elegance and concentration obtained from a long ageing process. Deep ruby red, tending to garnet. Complex and intense aroma of cherry, raspberry, licorice and balsam notes. Full bodied, with balanced tannins and nice acidity with a long aftertaste of ripe fruit and spices. Aged 42 months in Slovenian barrels and French oak barriques.
