BISTRO WINES

3 BOTTLES FOR $85


We love the feelings induced by Bistro Wines. The Bistro bottle is one that works well with all groups of food (and people.) It’s laid-back and delicious. It’s approachable, yet still quality. It’s popular, but unpretentious. These Bistro wines don’t need to age or open up; they’re meant to enjoy right now. And they’re perfect for transporting you to the quintessential French bistro without you even realizing you’ve traveled.

FAIRYTALE PINOTS

3 BOTTLES FOR $265


PINOT NOIR HAS LONG BEEN CHRISTENED THE “WINEMAKER’S WINE.”THE VARIETY HAS THE ABILITY TO EXPRESS TERROIR UNLIKE ANY OTHER. IN REALITY, IT IS THE ULTIMATE FAIRYTALE WINE. FOR A GREAT PINOT NOIR TO HAPPEN, THE PLOT OF LAND MUST BE WELL, FAIRYTALE; AND WE DON’T JUST MEAN AESTHETICS. A GREAT WINEMAKER KNOWS HOW TO MAKE BEST USE OF SOIL, CLIMATE, AND BARREL, BUT ALSO KNOWS WHEN TO STEP BACK. WE’VE CHOSEN PINOT NOIR FROM REGIONS WE CONSIDER TO BE THE OPTIMUM FOR THIS GRAPE VARIETY BY PRODUCERS WHO EMBODY EXCELLENCE IN THEIR CRAFT. MANY CONSIDER THE VARIETY TO BE THE BEST FOOD PAIRING WINE ON THE PLANET. WINE WRITER WILLIAM RUSTY FONDLY WRITES THAT PINOT NOIR IS “SEDUCTIVE, ELEGANT, AND EARTHY.” WE COULDN’T AGREE MORE.

WE THINK THESE THREE BOTTLES PAIR WELL WITH ALL OCCASIONS.

THE ICONS

3 BOTTLES FOR $400


FOR A WINEMAKER TO RISE TO THE LEVEL OF AN ICON, THEY HAVE TO STAND THE TEST OF TIME. THEY MUST HAVE A TRUE VISION AND AN UNWAVERING WINEMAKING HAND. WHEN STUDIED, IT IS CLEAR HOW THEY FOCUS ON QUALITY FARMING AND WHEN EXPERIENCED IN THE GLASS THESE MASTERS SHOWCASE THE VERY NATURE OF GRAPES AND TERROIR. THESE MAKERS ARE THE IDEALISTS THAT UPHOLD THE TRADITION NOT JUST FOR A FEW YEARS, BUT FOR GENERATIONS. THEIR WINES INSPIRE FUTURE WINEMAKERS AND SET THE STANDARD FOR WHAT’S TO COME.
