Fragrance: It starts its olfactory sensations with mineral hints and fruity ones like pomegranate. Hints of white fruit, pear and Golden apple.

Grechetto Colli Martani $15.99
A Colli Martani wine style worthy of extra mention is the Grechetto di Todi varietal.
Grechetto di Todi is a sub-variety of the standard white Grechetto grape, named after the Todi commune in the south-west of the Martani hills.
Its low yields mean the wines it produces have particularly concentrated flavors.

CastelVecchio Piemonte Rosso $12.99

Nebbiolo – Barbera – Dolcetto 
Ruby red in color, in time develops garnet tones. It has an intense and mature aroma, full body with a fresh taste of red berries.
It has a pleasant “fresh” wine nose, which becomes ethereal while aging 
A wine with fresh fruit taste and great character that ages well.

Fattoria Lavacchio Chianti Rufina DOCG $19.99
Chianti Rufina is the most famous of the seven subzones that fall under Italy's iconic Chianti DOCG.
The area, in the hills to the east of Florence, has a more continental climate and higher altitude that makes a Sangiovese -based wine in possession of good tannins and acidity:
closer in style to the prestigious Chianti Classico DOCG than its contemporaries.

Gandinaia Rosso, Syrah, Tenuta Colombarola $19.99
COLOUR: bright ruby-red with slight garnet highlights.
AROMA: slightly dried black berries (marasca cherry, elderberry, blueberry and blackcurrant) with a pleasant hint of wild strawberries. Floral scents (pinks, violets, dried red rose) with overtones of aromatic golden-leaf tobacco, liquorice and a balsamic pepper mix. A perfectly integrated and pleasant vanilla and oaky aroma.
FLAVOUR: a good structure, elegant and well-balanced alcohol, softness and acidity; pleasant and round with intense, soft tannins well blended into the structure. The aftertaste starts off reminiscent of black fruits and golden-leaf tobacco, and closes with a long, rich finish of vanilla and spice.

It goes well with traditional pasta dishes from Emilia (lasagna, tortellini, cannelloni), furred game, red meat (grilled and braised meat), hard or medium-hard cheese.

The Beers!!

Erdinger OktoberFest, 6 pack $12.99
The wheat aroma with a fruit and clove hint combines with a strong malty flavour at the back . 
ERDINGER Oktoberfest blends the advantages of our well known wheat beer with the traditional Oktoberfest taste.
A grainy flavour and lovely hoppiness. The feel and crispness of our wheat-based speciality with an Oktoberfest body.

Offshoot Relax IPA, 4 pack $16.99

6.8% ABV 42 IBU
Relax features fruity, tropical and citrusy hop notes and a round, soft mouthfeel of a hazy IPA.

Dogfish Head World Wide Stout, 4 pack $49.99, Single $12.99
A dark, roasty stout aged in oak barrels on vanilla beans. Rare and often rumored about in the darkest corners of the beer community.
Brewed with a ridiculous amount of barley, World Wide Stout is dark, roasty and complex.
This Ageable Ale clocks in at
15-20% ABV and has a depth more in line with a fine port than with a can of cheap, mass-marketed beer. 
World Wide debuted in the winter of 1999, and the staying power of this brew is undeniable.
