It is an adventurous weekend here at Madrona Wine. We’ll be exploring wines from the foot of the Alps mingled with sea mist from the coast of Sardinia then traipsing the Languedoc region in southern France to scoop up some great values. Come hit the trail with us.
Saturday, we are tasting wines from Tenuta Sella in the far north of Piedmont and Contini in the clear blue of Sardinia.
2015 Contini, Vermentino Tyrsos $12
2016 Tenuta Sella, Bianco Doranda $17
2015 Contini, Nieddera Rosato $12
2015 Contini Tonaghe Cannonau di Sardegna $13
2014 Tenuta Sella, Orbello Coste Della Sesia $17
Sunday, we are pouring two wines from Mont Gravet in the Languedoc. These wines are both incredible values.
2016 Mont Gravet Cinsault Rosé $10
A dry Languedoc rosé with aromas of raspberries and pears.
2015 Mont Gravet Carignan Vieilles Vignes $9
A smooth and silky old-vine red with lots of flavor and no pretensions.
Madrona Wine Merchants offers free wine tastings featuring 4-5 selections on a theme every Saturday from 2 until the bottles run out and on Sunday we offer a mini-tasting of two wines all day from 11-5.
