2014 Les Garrigues Cotes du Rhone

Les Garrigues Cotes du Rhone is reminiscent of the local, lusty, easy-drinking reds in Southern France that are downed by the pitcher in the local cafes.  The wine gets its name from the French word, Garrigues, which means "underbrush of wild herbs and spices". The indigenous Garrigues which grows wild throughout Southern France is said to impart a slightly spicy flavor to the wines of the region. 

2013 Conti Sertoli Salis

Chiavennasca is what nebbiolo is called in the sub-Alpine valleys of northern Lombardia. Conti Sertoli Salis, one of the oldest estates in the region, is one of very few who produce a white wine using this distinguished red variety. Grape skins are carefully separated from juice at the beginning of the vinification process allowing a bright, crisp white with complex floral and mineral aromas.
