Monday January 26thLe Ragnaie With Riccardo Campinoti
More Info

Ronnie Sanders, of east coast based Vine Street Imports, is bringing out the owner and winemaker of our favorite Brunello discovery of 2014: Le Ragnaie. The winery owns 42 acres in 3 distinct zones including, importantly, the highest altitude vineyard in Montalcino allowed to call their wine Brunello at just under 2000 feet above sea level (Le Ragnaie). Lower lying parcels in Castelnuovo dell'Abate flesh out the frame just enough. 25 hl Slavonian oak are used with the Brunello, spending 36 months minimum in wood. The resulting wines are bright and nuanced with focused and high toned aromatics.

Charlie just returned from 2 weeks in France on the Kermit Lynch producer tour. If Charlie is ordinarily excited to turn you onto his wares, one can only imagine the enthusiasm and knowledge he will bring on this night. Think "the glass runneth over..." We will pour the Brunier family Chateauneuf-du-Pape "Telegramme", the excellent Domaine Faury Saint-Joseph, and the 2011 Domaine Tempier Bandol.

Monday February 9thThe Wines of Tenuta Sette Cieli With Ambrogio Cremona Ratti
More Info

Mr. Ratti is an owner as well as brand ambassador for this recent addition to the winescape of Tuscany's Coast. Located between Bolgheri and Castagneto Carducci, the estate encompasses 173 acres (of which less than 20 are planted to vines) with the rest being lush pine forests and rolling hills. The emphasis is on Bordeaux varietals here, and the farming is all organic. A great night for devotees of ripe and rich Super-Tuscans.

Monday February 16thThe Wines of Vignai da Duline With Andy Lum
More Info

Andy Lum, of Denver based Unity Selections, joins to pour two whites and a red from one of the more original and unique producers in Friuli - Vignai da Duline. Based in San Giovanni al Natisone (and neighbors to our friends at Ronco del Gnemiz), Duline, particularly in terms of viticulture, absolutely marches to the rhythm of their own drum. The vines here reach as high as 15 feet tall here and appear to be left entirely to their own devices. This is only partially true though, as despite the chaotic appearance, there is absolutely a method to the madness. The vision is that of the late Japanese farmer/philosopher Masanobu Fukuoka, author of One-Straw Revolution, one of the leading lights of natural faming.

Monday February 23rdThe Wines of Robert Biale With Winemaker Tres Goetting
More Info

The Biale family are undeniably at the top of the food chain when it comes to old vine Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. Begun by Aldo Biale in 1937, the winery is located just east of Highway 29, north of the town of Napa itself. The specialty here is for concentrated, rich wines based on old vines. The wood used is predominantly French oak and while the wines are always ripe and full bodied they are also balanced and show enticing savor,and, particularly in the case of the Monterosso Vineyard, undeniably express terroir; there is a clear and pronounced volcanic spice to be found in this wine.
