Four Italian partners got together to create this winery after recognizing the potential of old vines grown in the warm climate of Argentina. Bonarda also happens to have Italian origins. The Las Hormigas vineyard is located at 800 to 900 meters altitude. Blueberry fruit, a touch of acidity and a really warming wine from the most widely planted grape in the Argentine.
This great new value comes from the high zone of Mendoza in the Val de Uco. The vineyards of Los Nevados are planted at almost four thousand feet thus benefiting from the cooler climate and a longer growing season. Fermented in stainless steel and aged in 30% new oak for a couple of months, it's got bright rich fruit with great balance of freshness and a complex finish.
Domaine Durdilly is a small family estate in southern Beaujolais. In a region full of negociants, Durdilly stands out, producing one of the few 100% estate-bottled Beaujolais wines that make it to the US. Beaujolais Nouveau is bottled within 8 weeks of harvest, which allows for a playful, low tannin, fruit forward wine. With a slight chill, this wine will ease you through those family gatherings.

Masciarelli is the largest organically farmed Estate in Italy. This everyday charmer is a nice marriage of old and new world styles. It has a bit of earthiness in an old world way, but plenty of fruit to please just about anyone! It has a slightly smoky and dusty nose with dark berries and leather. Cherries, blackberries and chocolate round out the palate. This is a great "house wine" to have around for meals and friends. Winemaking Details: Stainless Steel Tank Fermentation

Nicolas Rousset makes wines that respect nature, the environment and are expressive of their terroir and vintage. He works biodynamically, using indigenous yeast, and understands balance and subtlety. This wine is made from Gamay, in the traditional semi-carbonic style, and would please the most discerning crowd (and it is a crowd-pleaser). Aromas of red fruits and spice follow bright cherry and a bit of vanilla on the palate. Just enough acidity brings it all home in a delicious, quaffable glass.
Deep cherry red in the glass with purple highlights. The nose on this organic charmer is full of baking chocolate, ripe plums and sweet herbs. The palate is ultra-ripe with loads of crushed black berry, plums and waves of garrigue infused minerality.
