Refresh with these Spanish Pét-Nats

Pét-Nats are the way more fun and wilder version of French Champagne. Petulante White Pét-Nat & Petulante Rosé Pét-Nat - Spain Despite its recent surge in popularity, Pét-Nat is actually far from being the new hipster kid on the block. A Pét-Nat (short for the French pétillant naturel, which means "natural sparkling") is a wine made according to the ancestral method. Developed in the 16th century, this is the oldest way of making sparkling wine. But don't let its trendiness scare you away. Pét-Nats come with a much smaller price tag than French Champagne, and they are way more [...]

What Are We Drinking Now? Domaine Bardin Pouilly Fumé

Forget New Zealand, Spain, and Cali; Kevin is opting for Loire Valley Sauv Blancs. Domaine Bardin Pouilly Fumé - Loire Valley, France Sauvignon Blanc has become one of the most popular wines out there. Beautiful examples come from all over — New Zealand, Spain, California — but my personal favorites hail from the Loire Valley. You may be familiar with Sancerre, the most famous Sauvignon Blanc from the region. Pouilly Fumé is yet another stunning example of how amazing Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc can be.

What Are We Drinking Now? 2001 Salexis Napa Valley Merlot for Father’s Day

Kevin has a vintage Merlot for your classic Dad. 2001 Salexis Napa Valley Merlot Yes, you read that correctly: It DOES say 2001. This beautiful Napa Valley Merlot was made by John Gibson, who earned his stripes working for Chappellet, Stag's Leap, and Vin Cliff before starting this project, Salexis. The wine shows its age in the color (a dark garnet) but all of the aromas of raspberry, blackberry, coffee, and chocolate still remain. A super-big wine at 14%, this should be the anchor to that special Father's Day meal, especially if there's a giant hunk of red meat [...]

How about orange? 20,000 Leguas by Dominio de Punctum, 2018 Before we dive into a glass of this organic (& vegan) Spanish wine, let's get a little technical about what IS an orange wine: Orange wine (also called amber wine) is made from white wine grapes that have been fermented with skin contact, like a red wine. Now let's get into THIS bottle of orange — 20,000 Leguas. What I love about this Chardonnay blend is that it isn't just for the adventurous. This amber wine aims to please most wine drinkers with its notes of [...]
