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.

Vermouth the Old Way

--
Vermouth is back and crushable as ever. In Spain they celebrate la hora del vermut, dropping by the neighborhood bodega for a splash of cold, sweet aromatized wine. In Italy they take it slow, kicking back on the veranda. Saturday we’re pouring two red vermouths and one white, each produced in accordance with an old family recipe. After tasting through, we’ll stir you up a little mixture of vermouth and soda, with a citrus twist. It’s how the locals drink it.

Burgers & Beaujolais

High and low. It's a great American tradition, bringing together disparate elements and finding beauty in the tension between them. Something to do with our origins, maybe, a people forever reinventing themselves in novel contexts. In that spirit, we're throwing down at Dino's with burgers and Beaujolais. I'd like you to join us.
