The Wines!!
Hillinger Pinot Gris $12.99
Medium straw-yellow color with pink hue.
Aromas of ripe fruit such as quince and mango with hints of walnut. On the palate, the Pinot Gris is smooth and full-bodied with a nice middle palate, rounded off with a fine spicy and long finish.

Tegernseerhof T26
Gruner Veltliner $17.99
“T26” gets its name from the tank (number 26!)
in which Martin Mittelbach makes this hand-selected wine in his family owned winery, “Tegernseerhof”.
The nose has the aromas of green apples, melon, and a hint of citrus.
These fruits follow through on the palate of this exceptionally well-balanced wine.
Mineral notes along with white pepper and a touch of spice help to create its refreshing and long finish.

Steininger Kittsmannberg Gruner Veltliner $ 29.99
The palate shows spicy hints of nettle and a fresh bouncy zesty backbone of lemon and grapefruit,
which makes it all the more appetizing.
Serve with veal, pork, chicken and seafoods.

Hartl Pinot Noir Classic $19.99
A promising touch of reduction still plays on the nose,
riding above ripe notions of red currant and red cherry. The palate is ripe, mellow and smooth, showing rounded berry notes and a gentle structure supported by spicy freshness.
Oak is beautifully integrated and nothing is overdone.
The ripeness of the vintage is evident, but it is on the finish that this shows its true colors:
a good structure and lasting freshness.

Hillinger Zweigelt $16.99
Textbook Zweigelt, ruby-red color with a violet rim and a dark core.
Aromas of cherries and sour cherries, underpinned with delicate chocolate, creamy and smooth on the palate. Very fruity, sumptuous flavor and persistent, soft finish. 100% destemmed, 20% saignée, temperature-controlled spontaneous fermentation with natural yeasts for 4 – 5 weeks in a mixture of 3.000-liter oak vat,
second fill barrique and stainless steel for 15 months. 

Seghesio Old Vine Zinfandel, Sonoma $49.99
Notes of ripe blackberry, baking spices and underbrush fill the bouquet.
A rich entry of plum and cherry compote give way to a full mid-palate of smooth tannins and intense structure.
Beautifully balanced, this wine pairs well with Beef Braciole, mushroom sugo, and cherry balsamic pork tenderloin.
