The chardonnay grape cultivated on these steep hills produces a sparkling wine via a process of refermentation in tank.  Fresh with bright acidity and steady effervescence.  The aromas are of citrus fruit, almonds and the aromas of freshly baked bread. 
 
Chateau Moncontour, Les Quinze Arpents, Vouvray Brut  $15
Chenin Blanc
The Chateau Moncontour winery is one of the oldest of the Loire Valley. It was created around the fourth century. Since the tenth century, caves have been excavated in the cliffs to vinify and preserve its wine.

The wine is savory, fresh, elegant and balanced.

Andeluna!

Saturday, May 20th, 2pm

Andeluna´s estate, in the mountains above Mendoza, is located in an almost 200 acre ranch above 1300 meters, in Gualtallary, Tupungato.  1300 meters is a long way up to grow grapes. This region’s attributes include rocky, calcareous and mineral soil, typified by the incomparable weather and marked with wide diurnal temperature swings due to high altitude. The combination allows them to make wines with exceptional intensity in color, aromatic expression and structure.  This Saturday we’ll be pouring three wines from their 1300 line (young wines that highlight the freshness of the fruit and the intensity of their youth) as well as a couple of their Altitud Reserve wines (these wines seek greater complexity, starting in the vineyard, where there is a low yield per hectare, which results in more concentrated fruit as well as freshness.)  Stop by on Saturday and get high with us.
 
2014 1300 Torrontes  $13
Andeluna’s Torrontes has aromas of white flowers, citric and tropical fruits –rue, jasmine and white peach stand out. The wine has a fresh attack with an intense finish.
 
2015 1300 Malbec  $13
Andeluna’s 1300 Malbec begins with floral notes of violets and a fruity expression of red plum and strawberry.  The palate is fresh, smooth and balanced.
 
2015 1300 Cabernet Sauvignon $13
The 1300 Cabernet Sauvignon has spicy notes of white pepper and clove along with notes of red peppers.  The wine has an outstanding tannic balance that makes it pleasant to drink. The spicy notes linger in the end.
 
2013 Altitud Malbec $30
Besides a careful fruit selection, the Altitude Malbec spend 12 months in barrel to develop the balance between the fruit and the tannins.  The wine offers a deeply spiced aroma, with richly concentrated flavors of dark chocolate, mocha and roasted plum, showing some serious tannins. Asian spice and black pepper accents emerge on the dense finish.
 
2009 Altittud Cabernet Sauvignon $30 
This 2009 Cab has a bit of bottle age on it giving it the complexity that only comes with cellaring.  The wine has intense aromas of black pepper and bell pepper and cassis and cherry. Red fruits such as cherry type and cassis are also perceived.  In the mouth, a wide concentration of fruit and spicy notes. Mature tannins and a lingering finish.

Schreckbichl Colterenzio

Alto Adige – Südtirol

Saturday May 13th, 2pm

The Alto Adige Suditrol region is the northernmost province of Italy, with palm trees growing down in the valley and snow up on the Alps.  Around 15 B.C. a Roman country gentleman named Cornelius settled here and established his “Cornelianum” wine estate and the first wine culture in the area. The Roman name eventually evolved into “Cornaiano”, the village Colterenzio calls home. The wines from the hamlet of Colterenzio were favorites of Archduke Sigismund when he resided at Firmiano Castle in the 15th century. The Colterenzio winegrowers’ co-operative was founded by 28 vintners in 1960.
