Wines so Good They’ll Make you Forget Winter was Ever a Thing

Spring is the time when every bottle of wine whispers, “I’m the reason you spring forward and not fall back.” As the days get
longer, so, most likely, does your wine list, because nothing says “spring cleaning” like making room in the fridge for more rosé. (Is spring cleaning still an actual thing?) And remember: We always maintain a glass-half-full attitude when it comes to drinking wine in spring, or as we like to call it, optimistically prepped for a top-off. Our Wines of the Month for May will have you embracing spring with all the ardor of a kangaroo on a trampoline.

El Jefe Grande
Tempranillo
Ribera del Duero, Spain
You won’t be sorry there’s more wine in this bottle…

We are huge fans of Tempranillo because, yes, it’s delicious, but it is also versatile. This one is aged in cement for purity of fruit and freshness, revealing notes of white cherry, berry, plum, stone and mocha. And it’s ORGANIC.

Pablo Claro
Rosado
Castile, Spain
ORGANIC & BIODYNAMIC!

Tantalizing flavors of red currants, cherries, wild strawberries, orange zest, and minerals. This rosé is very well-balanced and rich, with a fresh acidity and dryness.

Schodl
St. Laurent

Never heard of St. Laurent? Think bright, juicy, fresh red fruits, subtle baking spice, thyme, and earth. Made naturally and organically by three siblings, this wine is the essence of Austrian chillable red.

Cerejeiras
Red Blend
Lisbon, Portugal
We all need that rustic & rich summer BBQ red.

Rustic and approachable, this dark Portuguese gem is full of all the flavors we imagine going well with the ribs and beefs and mushroomy things hot off the summer grill. Notes of blueberry, plum, dark flowers, and herbs make this your new go-to full-bodied red.

Pairings: steak tacos, grilled veggies, juicy ribeye steak, burgers, stuffed mushrooms, stuffed peppers, Korean BBQ, spicy chicken wings

Txakoli Primo
Txakoli Rosé
Basque Country, Spain
The pink version of this zesty, summer sipper!

Like the white, the rosé version of Primo Txakoli is zesty, refreshing and salty, but the pink version has notes of watermelon, cherry, tangerine and cantaloupe. Perfect for all your picnics and pool dreams.

Txakoli Primo
Txakoli
Basque country, Spain
What pairs well with sun? This wine!

This wine was a customer and staff fave and we’re glad to be bringing it back! 100% Hondarrabi Zuri, this wine is zesty, racy, slightly carbonated, salty, citrusy, and perfect for all the warm, sunny days.

Terregaie Kali
Sauvignon Blanc
Veneto, Italy
Italian Sauv Blanc…The Ultimate Crowdpleaser

It’s common to hear people say, regarding Sauv Blanc, “Is this more like New Zealand style or French?” How about neither! This Italian SB leans more French in its minerality, but then leans toward New Zealand with lots of citrus, mango, guava and elderberry. So we try not to classify it one way or the other; we prefer to just categorize it as “generally very delicious.”

Pairings: Grilled chicken, citrus salads, shrimp, chicken tikka tacos, Korean fried chicken, ceviche, goat cheese on crostini

$16.99/btl
• 3 bottles: $16.14/btl
• 6 bottles: $15.29/btl
• 12 bottles: $14.44/btl

Ampeleia
Rosato
Tuscany, Italy
Trust us when we say this rosato will change your life if you let it.

This wine is super magical with a color akin to coral reef. The wine goes through longer skin maceration, creating some light tannins and gorgeous flavors of strawberry, blood orange, spice box, sour berries and saline. Natural and organic.

Pairings: watermelon feta salad, pan con tomate, grilled cheese and tomato soup, gazpacho, tuna poke

(reg $21.99)

L’Atzar
Cava Brut Nature
Penedes, Spain
Bubbles, almost too good to be true.

It’s not everyday you find a Cava that’s bone dry, aged for 22 months in the bottle (more than some Champagne), family-owned, all ORGANICALLY farmed and crazy delicious. We love this bottle and know you will, too.
