Château Puech Redon 'Pour de Vrai' Pet-Nat, Languedoc FR 2017 $28.99
With a little help from iconic Rhône producer Eric Texier, Cyril Cuche of Château Puech Redon is crafting unpretentious and delicious wines in the south of France. His pet-nat is made from Cinsault and the indigenous Aramon grape (these are red grapes, but the wine is vinified white!). The name ‘Pour de Vrai’ translates to ‘for real’, and this peach-filled pet-nat is FOR REAL meant for sipping, all day long.
Cruse Wine Co. Traditional Method Sparkling White, California, USA NV $44.99
If “California Champagne” were a thing, this would be it. Made from 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Noir grapes sourced from extraordinary sites in California, this is a sunny and bright sparkler with notes of almond, honey and apples spritzed with lemon. It's airy and delightful on its own, yet substantial enough to pair with a Memorial Day feast filled with ALL THINGS FRIED!
Smockshop Band 'Spring Ephemeral' Rosé, Columbia Valley, USA 2018 $34.99
Smockshop Band explores the Columbia Gorge, a canyon that stretches along the Columbia river, forming the Washington/Oregon boundary. The Grenache and Zinfandel grapes illuminate your glass in all their electric pink and violet hues. It smells of watermelon, hibiscus and pine, while the pure palate is reminiscent of standing outside following a rainstorm. This rosé is captivatingly tasty – whip it out this weekend, and you’ll be the star of the show.
Château Pradeaux Rosé, Bandol, FR 2018 $35.99
Bandol is a Provençal appellation most famous for its red wines, so don’t be surprised at this rosé’s bold, robust and complex palate. Made from Cinsault and Mourvèdre, this rare rosé from an inimitable Château is something you must have on hand this weekend. Its rich, yet thirst-quenching – perfect to wash down burgers and BBQ fare, or any snacks and appetizers on hand!
Campi di Fonterenza ‘Pettirosso’ Tuscany, IT 2017 $32.99
Our favorite twin sisters Margherita and Francesca are back! Their tiny, high-altitude Tuscan estate is planted with Sangiovese grapes surrounded by woods and olive groves; they make so little wine, that our hearts skip a beat each time we’re graced with their bottles. The Sangiovese grapes for ’Pettirosso’ were sourced from organic vines on the soils of Mt. Amiata, and were made into a vin de soif, a wine to drink without too much thinking! Notes of smokey cherry and Italian herbs are followed by a bright, refreshing palate – a vin de soif, indeed.
Bruno Duchêne 'La Luna' Banyuls, FR 2018 $38.99
Bruno Duchêne is in the Banyuls region of southern France, where he produces dry reds from some of the hardest-to-work vineyards. His four parcels are planted with old-vine Grenache and Carignan atop schist soils. ‘La Luna’ is certainly more than a vin de soif, filled with ripe, sappy dark fruits, rocky minerality and Mediterranean herbs. It’s succulent yet refreshing on the palate, having spent just the right amount of time in the southern French sunshine. If there’s a single wine to accompany juicy, herb-marinated steaks and burgers, it’s this one.
