Wines Stocked just for Our ‘Hood
We believe in stocking our store based on your preferences. While we strive to introduce you to new varietals and unique flavors, we also aim to please. This list is by no means exclusive, it is merely a sampling of some of our favorite regions. We work to provide representation from well-known and lesser-known regions alike, hailing from right next door or across the globe.
Pinot Noir is King in the Willamette Valley. Located in Northwestern Oregon, winemakers here are producing internationally recognized Pinots, in addition to some beautiful Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.
Big, bold, peppery, and oaky are the wines coming out of California. There are 107 AVAs in California, with Napa and Sonoma leading the pack in popularity.
Not to be reduced to simply Beaujolais Nouveau, Beaujolais is comprised of 10 Crus known for producing vibrant, fruit-forward reds composed of Gamay.
Burgundy is the birth-place of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, which are the heavy-hitters in the region to this day. They are markedly different in style than those coming out of the New World, generally exhibiting a restrained use of oak and less weight on the palate.
The Rhône Valley is home to such coveted regions as Hermitage, Côte Rôtie and, to the south, Châteauneuf du Pape. The birthplace of Syrah, the Rhône produces elegant yet deep full-bodied wines.
The Loire Valley is predominantly known for producing dry, mineral whites like Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume. Although known for its production of Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc flourishes in Loire, as well.
The name-sake of the bubbly stuff we all know and love. Dating back to 1693, Champagne is home to some of the most highly regarded sparkling wine producers in the world.
Encapsulating Spain, Portugal and the Basque region, wines from the Iberian Peninsula range in style and are consistently some of the best values out there.
Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera from this region of Italy can produce vibrant, exciting, fun and young wines, in addition to producing some of the most ageable and regarded Barolo’s and Barberescos.
Home to some of the world’s most notable wine regions (Chianti, Montepulciano, Montalcino), Tuscany produces some of the world’s best expressions of Sangiovese. Possibly less well-known but equally as important is Tuscany’s production of sweet Vin Santo.
