This is the a wine to drink all summer long, especially when it gets really hot. Slightly sparkling and just plain delicious, it has a clean, fresh nose with a hint of saline and mineral. Light citrus and stone fruit on the palate with just enough body, give this a try, and we're sure you'll be back for more!
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. This is a rich, full-bodied Chardonnay without the oak, making it refreshing and a bit too easy to drink!
Joostenberg is situated in the Muldersvlei area, roughly 15km north of Stellenbosch and 15km west of Paarl. The wines carry the “Wine of Origin Paarl” designation. They practice environmentally friendly farming, aim to produce wines that reflect their origin by not irrigating and adopting a minimal intervention approach in the winery. Most wines are fermented using natural yeasts and all additives are kept to an absolute minimum. It’s a spice attack, that’s also floral and rounded.

Winemaker, Robert Eden, was kicked out of college for brewing too much beer in the dorms and it's a good thing! Otherwise, he may never have moved into oenology and we wouldn't be able to share this beautiful picpoul of his! This wine is as fresh as a bouquet of flowers on the nose. Zesty lemon, white pepper, and honey cover the palate before its persistent bone dry finish making this a great match for the local seaside foods of the Mediterranean or a version of your own!
Little touch of the grassy notes from a typical Sauv Blanc but leaning more to lemon and lime fruit on the palate makes this a very refreshing wine.
Palazzone cultivates the indigenous grape varieties allowed in the Orvieto D.O.C., namely Procanico, Verdello, Grechetto, Drupeggio and Malvasia Toscana. They do not use insecticides or fungicides in their vineyards and are judicial in the amount of sulfur added to their wines. Word has it on the rough tough streets of Brooklyn that a good Orvieto has hints of almonds on the nose and a palate of white summer flowers. This is it...word.
Villa Fiore is made in the Friuli Grave D.O.C. in Northern Italy by a small, family-run estate who also makes our popular Villa Marchesi Pinot Noir. They have been growing grapes for generations, have always practiced organic farming (which they just call farming) and have been making wine since 1960. The wine is surprisingly complex with distinctive aromas that range from herbaceous and minerally to floral and fruity. Flavors are characterized by ripe apricot, peach, melon and a bit of mineral.

"We call it the New Minimal Intervention because it's a technology-based understanding of when NOT to apply technology," says winemaker Peter Bell. What was once a dairy farm for over a century was converted to vineyards in 1984 and have since dedicated themselves to sustainability in both the vineyard and cellar. This chardonnay is surprising– big and creamy yet racy and bright without the use of oak. The nose and palate have notes of melon, lemon, and white nectarine aromas. It's rare to find a NY State wine so reasonably priced, delicious, and that fits our natural standards.
This blend is made from the same grapes used to make Marsala wine, only this dry version is bright with fresh citrus and white flowers. Imagine waves on the seaside, sunshine on your face, and a glass of this wine in your hand.
Bodegas Fariña is considered by many to be the best winery in the area of Toro. Established back in 1942, the winery is known mostly for their Tinto de Toro (Tempranillo), but this fun white wine should not take a back seat. Made from old vines from a single vineyard, this aromatic and juicy wine is full of fresh peach, zesty lime, and a clean minerality that will have you reaching for more.
