Wild & Crazy Grapes!

Tues-Thurs Tasting
Aug 11-13

This week we try 3 unusual (but tasty!) varietals from 3 different countries. Featuring:

  • Domaine Vetriccie, France – This white wine made from Biancu Gentile (an indigenous grape found only on the island of Corsica) makes for a perfect Mediterranean sipper: sun and sea combine in ripe fruit flavours of green grapes, zesty lemon and notes of salt and minerality. $14 btl, $7 btg
  • Descendientes de Jose Palacios Petalos, Spain —This critically acclaimed wine (Robert Parker: 93, James Suckling: 92, Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines) from Bierzo in Northern Spain is made from the regional grape Mencia and strikes the perfect balance of sun-filled Spanish flavors with the subtle elegance of a Rhone red: wild strawberries, black pepper and dark greens are balanced by a minerality, soft tannins and a long, silky finish. $19 btl, $8 btg
  • Belinda, Argentina – This blend of red grape Bonarda (Argentina’s most grown grape) and white grape Pedro Ximenez (usually used in sherry) results in a soft, medium bodied red filled with lush fruit flavors of blueberry and raspberry along with delicate notes of violets and fresh herbs. $15 btl, $7 btg

Tasting: $13

Paired with Pear, Gorgonzola & Walnut Flatbread
