Refreshing Summer Wines

This year winter kept returning into May like an unwelcome guest. Finally, flower beds are safe from an errant winter storm. As you consider what to pair with your summer cuisine of fresh fruit and vegetables, allow me to introduce a few to your palate.

Trinchero Napa Valley 2017 Mary’s Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 

Like its namesake, Mary’s Vineyard has a lot of personality. Mary’s was the very first vineyard purchased by the Trinchero family in 1980, 14 acres of sustainably farmed vineyards produces an extremely well-balanced wine with ripe tropical fruit notes and bright acidity perfect for the spring season. While we love a fresh glass of Sauvignon Blanc all year long, nothing says spring time quiet like the crisp acidic flavors accompanied in this varietal.

Vice Pinot Nior Rose 2018

The rosé of Pinot Noir is filled with fruity aromas-  take it for a swirl, it first strikes crisp and mineral, then it turns playful with an elegant long fruity finish; that sometimes can only lead to another sip. This is why we called it, The Vice.

Liberation De Paris Sparkling Chardonnay

A sparkling Chardonnay Brut which is full of fruit and freshness! Perfect for sipping with friends and family for convivial moments when simplicity and quality fit the bill. This sparkling Chardonnay boasts beautiful pale gold color and a trail of fine, long lasting bubbles. Its nose is extremely impressive and exudes captivating aromas of white-fleshed peach. Fruity notes on the palate with flavors of dried fruit and a touch of acacia honey. The finish is evocative of lemon zest. Overall, this wine offers remarkable freshness and lovely tension that can’t be beat when choosing a sparkling wine for spring!


Vice Sauvignon Blanc 2017 

This perfect spring wine jumps off the glass with a lively exotic bouquet. Guava, passion fruit and pink grapefruit are intertwined with peach blossom and kiwi. On the palate, the tropical cocktail of flavors continues.
