Below are our current curated sets of wines we love.
SUMMER ROSÉ 2020
6 Bottles for $130
The second edition rosé set is a flirtier, fresher, more crushable version of our pink-hued friends. Rosé is a busy bee with split personalities. Her first persona is drinking like her white wine brethren—keeping it light with freshness and liveliness. When she strays from this, she’s staying true to her red wine roots—playing up structure and complexity. When she’s feeling both temperaments, she’s balanced and playful—herself. Rosé defies the odds, she’s meant for year-round drinking. We can testify firsthand.

GRILL-ABLE FIRESIDE REDS
4 BOTTLES FOR $125
Reds for the grill, reds to chill. Do we mean chill, as in hang, or to throw on ice for a few minutes while you linger by the grill? The answer is up to you, but it could definitely be both. Whether you’re searing meat from your neighborhood butcher, or fiery-colored heirloom vegetables, these grill-able reds will meet your fireside munching more than halfway. Don’t worry, there’ve been copious grilling sessions to make sure these will work.

CLOS FIGUERAS, Serras del Priorat Spain 2018
4 BOTTLES FOR $115
These are whites for pairing with crushing with life, with friends, with food—all of the above. These summer whites just need something. If you’re opting for food, we recommend seafood or vegetable-based dishes with fresh herbs and olive oil. If you aren’t pairing these whites with food, we simply recommend your favorite book with a patio chair, or passing the time with friends by the pool. These bottles are for everyday, all purpose, day or night, you get the idea.
