Weingut Manfred Breit, Riesling Trocken (2018)
Manfred Breit took over from his father in 1970 an estate of 1,2 ha (3 acres). Over the following years he constantly brought the company to another level and now the winery owns 6.4 ha (18 acres). Most of the vineyards are located on the steep Mosel hills. Current winemaker, Holger Breit, learned the wine business in Trier, did his business diploma and finished studies in 1996. Since 1994 he has been working in the company, with the 1997 harvest Holger Breit became responsible for the vinification of the wines. Their Trocken Riesling is completely dry and packed into a 1.0L bottle for just about a glass more of enjoyment!

Fernlands, Sauvignon Blanc (2019)
Quintessentially fresh, focused and zippy on the nose with aromas of lime juice, leafy hedge row and ripe yellow citrus. The palate builds on themes established by the aromatics delivering bright, zesty citrus based flavours with a long palate neatly framed by mouth-watering acidity.
La Quercia, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo (2018)
Antonio Lamona is the most humble rock-star we know. His basic Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is a staple of our Small Vineyards Portfolio, and we are thrilled to present his Riserva. Aged in 50 hl Slavonian oak for 12 months, and an additional year in steel, the wine exudes wonderful character from the 40 year-old vines. Grown in the classic “tendone” (or tent) style, the plantings are pruned to produce about 2/3 of a bottle per plant (very low yields!).
Buck Shack, Red Wine Small Batch Sustainably Farmed Lake County (2017)
Our Syrah and Petite Sirah provide the juicy, yet structured base. We Blend in small amounts of Merlot for a fleshy mid palate, Cab Franc for aromatics and tannin, and Barbera for a touch of acidity and balance.

O’Neill Vosti Wines, Petit Bâtard Red Napa Valley (2014)
A Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Malbec blend with black cherry, cassis, ripe blueberry & Santa Rosa plums. Includes notes of sweet black tobacco, clove & vanilla with dark dusting chocolate & sweet roasted grains. Still a very young wine with an intense & beautiful palate. Concentrated fruit on the front end and elegantly long on ending.

Plus these great Beers!
