3/18: Torrontés Release March 17 2017

One of our winningest white wines is back on the lineup starting Saturday! Join us for the release of our 2016 Torrontés. It will be a lineup full of new releases, classic award-winners, and some anniversary specials.

An evocatively aromatic and exotic varietal that captures the essence of Argentina's favorite white wine with scents of honeysuckle and citrus. The light yet seductive flavor profile is slightly champagne-esque with dry pear, tangerine, and barely-there rosemary. Refreshment is in the cool, crisp finish.

2/19: 2016 Pinot Gris Release Party February 17 2017

Join us on Sunday, February 19th for the debut of the new vintage of one of our most popular varietals. This go-to white wine can handle a variety of food pairing options including the tropical shrimp with pineapple salsa that we will feature at the release.

A clean aroma of tangerine and honey introduces a fusion of ripe apricot, pineapple, and orange with just a touch of mineral spice. It's exploding with flavor and still light enough to be the must-have, all-weather white wine.
