WINE #1
Cataratto, Sicily 

This is a light, crisp and refreshing white. A perfect pairing to the start of the evening on a late summer day. Think lemonade with hits of green apple and a hint of barnyard.

WINE #2 
Chenin Blanc, Margaret River

Chenin Blanc feels like a weird wonderful grape that deserves more credit. This wine has an incredible acidity that allows it to age for years developing very cool mushroomy notes.

WINE #3
Sparkling Baga, Barraida

These Baga based bubbles are criminally underrated simply because the region is less known… as such, it's an incredible value for any and all.

WINE #4
Monastrell, Alicante

Berries, leather, herbs and all with a light acidity that help pull this wine together. Think young southern rhone valley, but with a softness you just can get from there.

WINE #5 
Syrah, Minervois

Brash and brooding, a fun take on a classic Rhone Blend, but from a lesser known region. Big tannins round out the full flavour with a soft and light acidity.  

WINE #6
Nebbiolo, Valtellina Superiore 

What’s not to like?? Nebbiolo (most will know this grape from barolo or barbaresco) grown on the hillside with great exposure. An unreal combination of power with a soft touch.
