Happy February! We can't wait for you to enjoy the wines we carefully hand-selected for you to experience! We are celebrating love and looking forward to cuddling up and taking it easy. We urge you to carve out some good quality time with friends or re-connect with that certain someone. Because you deserve it. Now let's jump into your February 4-pack! Yay!
Rubicone Cabernet Sauvignon IGT ‘Cabernetico’ 2021
Cabernetico is a well-balanced, medium-bodied red wine made with Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Tenuta Saiano makes small batches of natural wine from Emilia-Romagna, Italy (Rubicone IGT). He grows all the grapes himself, picking each one by hand. It’s truly a labor of love and respect for the land. Cabernetico is young and smooth, with fresh Mediterranean notes of black olives. Made by carbonic maceration, the grapes undergo a slight crushing after five days. The result is an easy-drinking, beautiful wine that pairs well with lamb, spaghetti and meatballs, roast beef or tomato veggie stew. Serve cooler than room temperature and stick in the fridge after opening.
Meinklang Prosa (Frizzante Rosé)
This month, we’re celebrating love! Prosa is the perfect bottle to enjoy with your one true love, whoever that may be! A lightly sparkling Pinot Noir with a hint of sweetness on the palate. This comes from Burgenland in Austria and is the type of wine that will woo the senses with flowers, red strawberries and vibrant freshness. Meinklang makes some of the bestselling natural wines in the world. Meinklang is a family owned and operated farm that functions much like an organism, relying not only on the people but also on the local herd of cows which contributes in an essential way with their natural and invaluable fertilizer. The farm’s diversity is enriched by ancient grains such as spelt, farro, and einkorn wheat, as well as the fruit orchards and vegetable gardens, meadows of wild herbs and flowers, and the elegant charm of the grapevines. Serve chilled and pair with a bouquet of flowers and a box of chocolates.
Garcia Perez Skin Contact
Garcia Perez is located in Manchuela DO, Spain - home of the original paella! This wine was created with food in mind. You can’t have one without the other! Garcia Perez is owned and operated by brothers Fernando and Pedro, with a little help from good friend Danilo Marcucci (legendary winemaker). Their vineyard is based in the Manchuela region of Murcia, Spain and is surrounded by thyme and rosemary! The wine is 100% Macabeo, grown on clay and on skins for thirteen days. Super aromatic and herbal on the nose and a long dry finish. Round and silky on the palate. Notes of honeydew melon, Concord grapes and hints of aniseed. Light and refreshing. Serve chilled and pair with grilled whole snapper, rice and roasted eggplant!
Los Andreses ‘Luzador’ Tinto Navarra
"Luzador" is the warrior of the sun - a fighter for the light! It is an exclusive collaboration blend between the Andres Sisters, Los Hermanos Navarsotillo and La Luz Selections (wine importers). Farming is Demeter certified 100% biodynamic in the Ribera Alta de Navarra region of Spain. Their farm is subject to exhaustive and continuous monitoring throughout the year. No breaks. The cycle begins in November with an analysis of the land and careful pruning!
Luzador Tinto Navarra is made from a blend of 50% Tempranillo and 50% Garnacha. It is savory, rich, succulent, earthy and fruity. Notes of cherry, pomegranate, Coca-cola, thyme and fresh herbs. It all comes together in the most beautiful way. One of our goals for 2023 is to drink more Spanish wines (both reds and whites!) and we think this is the most epic way to start. We love this wine so much and hope you do too! Serve slightly chilled and pair with lasagna, chile relleno, BBQ, or grilled corn. Salud!
