On July 1st, 2012, a hailstorm of incredible violence destroyed the totality of Chateau de Roquefort’s 62 acres of vines in 7 minutes. Doubting the extent of the damage, neighbors and fellow growers stopped by and were stricken by what they saw. One of them offered part of his crop, followed by a second, then a third, and when it was all done, 35 different estates all pitched in to help. This wine is made from diverse appellations in the Rhône and Provence blended together into one delicious rosé.
This fruity, refreshing wine has clean vibrant citrus notes and aromas of strawberry and rasberry.

Owned by the Petri family, who's been making wine in the Pfalz since 1655, this unusually ripe German Pinot Noir is a joy to drink. It has a fruit-forward character with a hint of cinnamon and clove on the expressive nose, followed by cherry, raspberry and blackberry on the palate with a hint of mushroom and earth. A great Pinot for a great price, we love this one.
Fully dry and full of mineral and citrus, this is a great value. Weingut Petri is unusual in Germany as they don't use any chemical pesticides or herbicides, even in the lower-priced offerings.

St Georges pinot noir derives from a site just below the southern end of the Santa Cruz Mountains. A benevolent climate, poor soils, fastidious farming and shy-yielding vines combine to produce tiny, immaculate, densely flavored clusters. The winemaking begins with ambient yeast, a dollop of whole clusters, élevage in neutral barrels, and the wine is bottled without fining or filtration. This is definitely a West Coast Pinot, with lush cherry fruit and lovely spice notes, but not overdone like so many have been from this region.
With 60% of their vineyards over 100 years old, Roquesán may be the best value in the store. This 100% Tempranillo is grown in sandy with alluvial stone soil at 2,788 feet. The free run juice ferments in cement tanks with 10 days of maceration. The wine then ages for 6 months before spending another 10 month in bottle before release. This is balanced, fruit forward tempernillo without the weight of excess oak that plagues this region. Dark fruit, firm tannins, nicely balanced by just enough acidity to make you want to refill your glass.
