TESTIMONIALI have been tasting and drinking and selling the Pinot Blancs made by Hansjorg Rebholz for a decade now, from vintages stretching back twice as far, and I will attest with naked honesty (and admittedly contrarian glee) that I have enjoyed them and wondered at them in their mature versions more than ANY dry white wines I have ever tasted. The Rebholz Weisserburgunder GG Im Sonnenschein—his top cuvee which he picks from a grand cru of 250 million year old limestone—is carved like an ivory Chinese devotional, infinitesimally detailed, burnished by smoke and draped in luxuriant robes of cream. The wine has no oak to distract from its pear perfume and ample acids to enliven it. There’s fruit in the early years, as there is in great German Riesling. But... Continue reading

 

We proudly offer a wide range of spirits that includes everything from small-production vodkas and whiskeys, to mezcals distilled in the remote mountain areas of Oaxaca, Mexico.

Healthy grapes and bright acidity are considered just as important as Oechsle measurements in today's wines

The 2015 vintage will be remembered for its dry, hot summer growing season. It will also be revered for the stellar quality fruit harvested by the VDP estates, even if overall yields were distinctly lower than in years past. Extensive manual selection, world-class vineyards and well-timed interventions paid major dividends this year, leading to frequent comparisons to the legendary 1959 and 1971 vintages.  Read more

A small operation originally known as Fratelli Alessandria, Schiavenza was passed to sisters, Enrica and Maura. Aided and abetted by their husbands Walter Anselma (married to Enrica) and Luciano Pira (married to Maura) their holdings include approximately eight hectares mostly in Serralunga and parcels in the crus of Prap, Cerretta and Broglio. Schiavenza is local dialect for sharecropper or vineyard worker. This name was chosen not for any sense of irony; it reflects the respect the family has for the hard work and labor intensive ways used to make wine here and in the region. The vineyard work is strictly organic (has been for years) and of course, only spontaneous yeasts are ever used. Thats Luciano on the left and Walter on the right. @ericasimov recommends their dolcetto in this month's wine school. Link in profile.

Jacquesson's '07 Corne Bautray was one of the best wines at the @lafetenyc Grand Tasting, and it's equally as thrilling today in Dizy. Corne Bautray is always great, but the 2007 is extra great. #regram from @peterliem. #instawine #champagne #champagnejacquesson #dizy

Know your Nouveau! Ours is made by Jean-Paul Brun at his estate, Domaine des Terres Dores in Beaujolais' region of the "golden stones." Like his crus, it is made with indigenous yeast and clocks in at 12% ABV. Happy Nouveau Day! #beaujolaisnouveau #l'ancien #terresdorees #knowyournouveau #jeanpaulbrun #gamay #instawine

"Radikon, along with Gravner and Kante, essentially defined that first wave of pioneers in the technique of skin maceration and helped draw attention to the odd borderland between Slovenia and northeast Italy where this style of wine found its modern home turf." Timely as always, @jbonne covers #orangewine in @punch_drink magazine. Link in profile.
