Valencia, Spain
RELEASE DATE: December 2019 VALENCIA, SPAIN Valencia, a sunny region located in the heart of Spain’s east coast, is where one can find the Tempranillo grape. The Mediterranean climate of mild winters and very warm summers, combined with the gently sloping vineyards and permeable subsoils, creates the perfect growing conditions for this savoury grape. Valencia is also home to the famous annual Las Fallas festival which welcomes the arrival of spring with fireworks, pyrotechnics and colourful, giant paper-maché figures. Every day during the festival at 2 om, the city is filled with the sound of firecrackers, ultimately ending in the extraordinary finale called the Terremoto! TERREMOTO TEMPRANILLO The Tempranillo grape’s thick skin gives the wine a deep ruby colour and moderate tannins. Medium-bodied and savoury, Terremoto Tempranillo has flavours of cherry, dried fig and cedar, with hints of leather and spices. Whether you’re celebrating a big occasion like your 30″ anniversary, complete with fireworks, or just toasting the end of a workday, this wine is the perfect accompaniment.

PECORINO
per batch
$225
Abruzzo/Veneto Italy
RELEASE DATE: JANUARY 2020 PECORINO- ABRUZZO, ITALY PINOT GRIGIO- VENETO, ITALY The Pecorino grapes are sourced from Abruzzo, Italy which is a mountainous region located along the Adriatic Sea. It is also home to the highest point on mainland Italy, Corno Grande. Veneto is located in northeast Italy and is the source region for the Pinot Grigio. The Influence of the nearby Alps provides a cooler microclimate where fresh, crisp white wines flourish. PECORINO PINOT GRIGIO Pinot Grigio was originally established as Pinot Gris in Burgundy and although most famous in Alsace, France, made its way to Switzerland in the 1300s and eventually to Northern Italy where Pinot Grigio was born. Today it is Italy’s most popular grape. Pecorino has a bit of a different history; thought to be extinct in the mid 20th century, it was rediscovered in the 1980s by a local producer who then took cuttings and propagated them resulting in this grape’s resurgence. Blending Pinot Grigio, the most popular Italian white wine grape, with the lesser known Pecorino grape results in a delicate white wine with high acidity, lemon, lime, and honeysuckle flavours, and an elegant floral aroma. Pair with steamed mussels, seafood risotto, and vegetarian spring rolls Alcohol: 12.5* *Alcohol level based on following Winexpert winemaking instructions. Sweetness: 0 Body: Med Oak: 0

YOLO WHITE

$225
California
RELEASE DATE: March 2020 YOLO White, California LE19 Ready in 6 weeks RELEASE DATE: MARCH 2020 YOLO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA YOLO is commonly known as an acronym for ‘You Only Live Once’; however, the origin of the name Yolo County is believed to come from Native American descent. This county is situated at the northernmost region within the Central Valley in California. Because of the deep and fertile soils found here, Yolo County is largely known for its agriculture, mainly its tomato production. The marine affects from the nearby Sacramento River provide cooler temperatures and the fog that rolls in and out of the vineyards daily, combined with the coastal winds, makes for ideal grape growing conditions. The climate contributes to the concentration of aromatic compounds found in the wines produced in this region. YOLO White Fruit-forward and slightly off-dry, the palate on this wine is inviting and well-balanced. The Chardonnay contributes vibrant green apple and melon flavours. The floral aromatics come from the Muscat, and the Chenin Blanc completes the wine with citrus flavours and high acidity. Pair with mild curry dishes, baked ham, Brie and Camembert cheese.
