The Wines!!
Petrucco Pinot Grigio $24.99
A dry, white wine naturally low in acidity. Showcases signature flavors and aromas of stone fruit, citrus, honeysuckle, pear and almond.
Aromatic (think rose and honey), richly textured and sometimes relatively higher in alcohol

Petruccoo Ribolla Gialla $24.99

In Colli Orientali, the specialty is crisp, flavorful white wine made from indigenous varieities like Friulano (formerly known as Tocai Friulano), Ribolla gialla and Malvasia Istriana. 
Ribolla Gialla Indigenous vines among the oldest in Friuli, the Ribolla Gialla di Rosazzo was already well known during the era of the Republic of Venice. Even though one of the lesser aromatic white wines, it is notable for its freshness, elegance and minerality.

Lionello Marchesi Morellino di Scansanso $19.99
Morellino di Scansano DOCG is an Italian red wine made in the hilly environs of the village of Scansano, GR, in the Maremma region of coastal Tuscany, which has an ancient but obscure tradition of winemaking. Morellino is the local name for the Sangiovese grape variety. Many people think that the name Morellino comes from morello, the colour of the region's horses. The name may also come from the morello cherry, a dark red cherry with great tartness and acidity. The wine, which was granted DOC status in 1978, then upgraded to DOCG status beginning with the 2007 vintage, is made from at least 85% Sangiovese, which is also the basis of the Tuscan wines Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The remaining 15% can comprise any non-aromatic black grape varieties included in a list made and periodically updated by Tuscan wine authorities.

Lionello Marchesi Rosso di Montalcino $29.99

Rosso di Montalcino is produced in the same defined zone as Brunello di Montalcino, around the town of the same name in Tuscany, Italy. The DOC was put in place in 1984 order to expedite production from younger vines and plantings, with less aging requirement than Brunello.
Both are made entirely from a local variant of the Sangiovese grape known as Brunello—translated as the ""little dark one," referring to the size and color of the grape.
Several important critics have rated this Rosso di Montalcino wine highly.

Azienda Conte di Campiano Primitivo $19.99 $21.99

This wine has been rated in the 90's for several recent vintages.
Primitivo is a dark-skinned grape known for producing inky, tannic wines, particularly Primitivo di Manduria and its naturally sweet Dolce Naturale variant.
A classic Primitivo wine is high in both alcohol and tannins, intensely flavored and deeply colored.
In Manduria, the fortified liquoroso variants often reach an ABV of 18%, which is dulled to 14% in the table wines.
Thought to be the Ancestor of Zinfandel.


The Beers!!

Von Trapp Double IPL, 4 pack $14.99
An American Imperial Pilsner style beer brewed by von Trapp Brewing in Stowe, VT. 
 It pours clear gold with a tiny white head and some residual lacing.

SixPoint Shatter Extra Dank Double IPA, 6 pack $15.99
A new strain of hops out of Oregon that’s shattering expectations
—it’s got a huge aroma of lush fruits plus a big whiff of dank weed.
Think direct injection of ultra-concentrated Resin.

Komes Baltic Porter, Poland, 500mL $6.99

This brew reflects the history of brewing, referring to the 18th century tradition of brewing porters in the Baltic states.
At their prime, Baltic porters represented one third of the market, which is the best evidence of their popularity.
We offer you a well-balanced, dark, strong beer with a distinct flavour.
It is almost ebony in color, smooth, creamy and full bodied with big richness of texture that is almost oily and very assertive, like a warming coconut brandy.
