Domaine Mamaruta ‘Trafalgar’
Trafalgar is a famous naval battle where Lord Nelson of Britain’s army defeated the French and Spanish fleets! The Battle of Trafalgar! Domaine Mamaruta is a charming winery on the Audois coast in the south of France dedicated to 100% organic farming. They believe in luck. And lucky for them, their soils are rich with limestone. The winemaker is Marc Castan who studied viticulture to take over his grandfather’s vineyard. He believes in biodiversity and a “clean,” natural winemaking process. Yields are low and quality is high. Trafalgar is 100% Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, a white wine grape that produces pink/reddish grapes. The beautiful light copper/peachy color represents the color of the grapes and the 3 weeks it spent on the skins. The juice is bright and refreshing and the tannins are soft. This wine is so balanced and harmonious! Absolutely outstanding. Serve chilled and serve with linguine and clams, pasta bottarga or baba ganoush and roasted veggies from Mazal.
Les Vins de Barbichette ‘Le Blanc’ White Wine
A beautiful, salty, lime-driven wine from Seneca Lake, NY. The dry margarita of wines! Fresh and aromatic, bright and full of energy, this white wine is a joy to sip all year round. But we love riesling especially during the Autumn/Winter season, paired with deep fried turkeys and roasted root vegetables. It’s full and plush, but still mineral-driven and refreshing enough to drink multiple glasses of! Today, riesling stands as the quintessential grape variety of choice in the Finger Lakes. Barbichette chose to make a wine that reflected a style that has all but vanished - using basic tools and historic aging vessels. The result is current, correct and so food friendly. Serve chilled and enjoy!
We love this steely, silky citrus-y Chardonnay. No oak or butter here. Just amazing refreshing South African Chardonnay by female winemaker Ntsiki Biyela. She is a force in the wine world and is creating some of the most drinkable, dynamic wines available today. 100% organic farming. Serve chilled and enjoy with oysters, grilled white fish, seafood salad or a big bowl of popcorn on movie night!
Domaine de Majas Blanc
We love this bright, white wine! Floral and fruity nose with white peach, lemon. This natural wine is off-the-beaten path, fresh, aromatic, beautifully mineral-driven, and refreshing. An F&F fave!
