What Are We Drinking Now? Château d’Aqueria Tavel Rosé

Barbara has a Rhône rosé for us, but rosé season is over. Or is it? Château d'Aqueria Tavel Rosé - Rhône Valley, France Now, you may ask yourself, why is there a rosé being featured as we move into cooler weather? Because there is such a thing as a fall rosé.

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? Les Vignobles Foncalieu

Piquepoul has been one of Marshall's favorite wines, but this Piquepoul is something special. Les Vignobles Foncalieu - Languedoc, France For years Piquepoul has been one of my go-to summer wines, so when I saw Foncalieu's Piquepoul Noir Rosé hit our shelves, I knew I had to try it. Gleefully I took a bottle home and let it chill while I prepped dinner, and opened it when it was about twenty degrees below room temperature. I unscrewed the cap and poured a glass. The results did not remotely disappoint. The wine immediately drew me in with scents of rain [...]
