Tasting: Serious Holiday Fun

--
Last weekend was fun, but now it's time to think seriously about holiday pairings. The season is upon us and special gatherings demand special wine. That's why we're opening up four single varietal bottles produced from four of the most Noble of grapes: Chardonnay, Gamay, Pinot Noir, & Nebbiolo.

This Saturday will be our last tasting of the year. We're upping the ante. Stop by and help us send 2017 out in style.

Tasting: Holiday Fun

Part 1 of our holiday tasting extravaganza. Saturday’s lineup is fresh, funky, & fun. This time of year is full of get togethers, family hangs, & full-fledged holiday parties. You need good wine, but you might not want to drop a lot of dough. Worry not. We’ve got your bread & butter right here. (We literally sell bread on Saturdays. We’ll figuratively butter your party palate.) Stop by on Saturday and taste four fun wines that will pop off all the parties.

Thanksgiving Master Class

Despite my best efforts to slow time, we’re already more than halfway through November, and thus, days from Thanksgiving. Tomorrow is the last Saturday before Turkey Day and so, obviously, we’re going to pour superb wines that complete a Thanksgiving spread. And we’re not holding back.

Tasting: Teutonic Turkeys

From the high hills of the Willamette Valley, Teutonic produces German-inspired wines that just so happen to pair perfectly with Thanksgiving. This Saturday we're opening four, in a tribal turkey tasting that will prime your salivary glands for the fast-approaching holiday.

Riesling and pinot noir are obvious pairing choices for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. As is gewurztraminer, with its spicy aromatics and rich texture. But who would think to pair a gewurz/pinot blend? Who would think to blend those grapes in those first place?

glou-glou | noun | \’glü-(,)glü\

1               :  that natty juice that makes you shimmy and squirm in delight

2               archaic  :  of, relating to, or consisting of any of the four French humors and their respective corresponding excrements

Jimmy was on his way to the Laundromat when he stumbled upon a jug of glou-glou and proceeded to chug his way to a delectably degenerate afternoon.

Tasting: Cali Love

--
It is difficult to comprehend the damage done by the wildfires in California, from the point of view of surveyor, assessing the extent of the devastation, and emotionally, grappling with stories and images of destruction and loss. Several customers have approached us inquiring after the welfare of the producers we carry and the welfare of their vineyards. At this point, it is hard to tell. We know that thousands have suffered and been displaced.
 
On Saturday we’re doing our little part to help raise funds for the disaster relief effort. In addition to opening wines from three of our favorite California producers, we’re donating 15% of Saturday’s total sales to Sonoma County Community Foundation. Swing by the shop and drink for a great cause. And if you feel so inclined, click here and donate to the charity we’re supporting.

New California: Donkey & Goat

Eureka! We found another cool California producer! Or, they found their way onto our shelves. You know we love us some Broc Cellars. Now meet the neighbors: Donkey & Goat. Located literally half a block away, on 5th Street in downtown Berkeley, Donkey & Goat have been producing righteous, natural wine since 2004, staying true to terroir and grape variety.
 
On Saturday we’re opening Gadabout, a toasty white rich with notes of apricot and flowers, and Gallivanter, a smokey red highlighted by rosemary and bright acidity. To complete the tasting, we’re also popping a bottle of Tendu. It’s a chillable liter from Matthiasson that should make everyone’s summer crush list.

Partida Creus: Indigenous Spanish Pow-Pow

Partida Creus Tasting

--
When giving recommendations for food and wine pairings, I often think regionally. They eat andouillette in Lyon, pair it with Côtes du Rhône. It's a cool way to offer a comprehensive gastronomic experience.

And the method transcends food. Walking these streets of Nashville this week, melting into the pavement, I was thinking to myself, what pairs well with the misbegotten heat? What do they drink on the blazing rangy coast of the Mediterranean? Simple. Qeixal del llop. And cariñena. And vinyater.

In plain English, we're opening a refreshing white and red from Spain. The red is one of those bottles that benefits from a chill. Radiant, savory and natural, it's bottled without the addition of sulfites. And the white, made from the vinyater grape, is a quaffable zinger, unfined and unfiltered with cutting acidity. That wasn't so complicated, was it?

Broc Cellars: Always on Mission

broc_mission_web.jpg

--
Chris Brockway gets a lot of admiration around here. His wines are better represented on our shelves than any other producer’s. Currently, we carry seven different labels. And that’s really saying something, considering he’s a California producer. But hey, Cali’s been bringing it lately!
 
On Saturday we’re sharing the love, popping two recent arrivals and one standby. Lagrein is inspired by the numerous bottles of rosé from the Alto Adige that Chris has enjoyed over the years. Mission is produced from California’s first cultivated variety, a grape also known as Listán Negro that was brought over by Spanish missionaries. And from the Love Ranch in the Madera Foothills, Love White is a blend of Marsanne, Roussanne, & Viongier.
 
Do it. Come by and proclaim your love. It feels magnificent.

Special Tasting with Olé Imports

Raúl Pérez, winemaker

Raúl Pérez, winemaker

--
Last month David Kemmerer of Olé Imports stopped by with several wines that had not yet entered our market. Three bottles particularly intrigued our palates and resonated with the shop's vibe. David offered to kickoff their Nashville release with a special in-store tasting. Come share in his enthusiasm and insight!
 
Founded in 1999, Olé is an intentional, small importer of Spanish wines. In the words of co-founder Patrick Mata, “I have searched the Spanish peninsula for wines that share four fundamental elements: terroir, quality fruit, exceptional winemaking and, last but not least, wines that present an exceptional value.” It’s not difficult to see why Patrick's wines thrive here.
 
On Thursday we’re opening a zippy, aromatic white from Basque country. As singular as the region it comes from, this wine blends riesling and folle blanche with the native hondarribi zuri, offering round texture that complements the racy indigenous variety. We’re also opening a mencía from legendary winemaker Raúl Pérez and a garnarcha and cariñena (aka grenache and carignan) blend from the Montsant region.

Going Big with Julien Braud's Forty Ounce Muscadet

forty ounce muscadet

We go big when the warm weather rolls around. And what’s more savage than Muscadet bottled as if it were Colt 45? It’s tighter than a laminated hall pass. Fresher than Lonzo Ball’s new kicks.
 
Memorial Day Weekend is fast upon us. We’re talking pool parties, cookouts, & epic jam sessions. Sun's out guns out, and we're packing the new glue. The only question that remains - is it still called Edward Forty Hands if you’re drinking Muscadet?

La Clarine Farm Piedi Grandi

From the wild mountain outpost of their Home Vineyard, La Clarine Farm crafts the surprising Piedi Grandi, made from nebbiolo and mourvedre, two grapes that normally stand far apart, glaring at each other from across a flavor divide, but that in the hands of the husband-wife duo Hank and Caroline come together like sugar and spice, with a very pretty nose of dried fruits and a fine-grained, complex umami finish.

Palate Cleansers: Don't Get Beat by Fatigue

shelter-wine-lovely-lily-germany

--
Palate fatigue is real. It’s that moment – around drink three or four – when the nerves in your tongue sense the fried state of things up top and stop sending messages to the brain. Your taste buds max out. Sips of Mint Julep slip into thoughtless gulps.
 
Don’t succumb to palate fatigue this weekend. You know juleps will be in the mix, but switch things up a bit. Keep the connection alive with a clean godello from Spain. Refreshen the senses with a lively rosé from California. Then cool off with a chilled pinot noir from Germany. If at any point you feel your taste buds are beginning to wear, find an open space to perform a series of tongue exercises. Swoosh, swoosh, swallow. Swoosh, swoosh, swallow.

Earth Day! Lutte Raisonnée

Many small producers practice sustainable farming without applying for organic certification, which is expensive and often impractical. But that doesn’t mean these agronomists aren't fighting the good fight.
 
Celebrate small, conscientious farmers by stopping by and drinking their wine. We’re showcasing three producers from the Loire Valley, all imported by Kermit Lynch.
