All our products are listed and priced online. But as most people tend to make a type they are familiar with, some fine products go unnoticed.

A few examples:

– Raspberry Dragonfruit White Shiraz: Smooth and sweet, with a tart finish. One of the seasonals that was added to the regular lineup due to popularity. Not everyone is willing to try somethng with Dragonfruit in the name, but those who do come back for more.

– Viognier: A grape that almost went extinct, is gaining ground again. A delicate tasting wine originating in the present day Dalmation Coast and brought to the Rhone Valley in France.

– Mueller-Thurgau: A crossing of Riesling and Madeleine Royale originating in late 19th century Switzerland, this variety grew steadily in popularity throughout most of the 20th century.

– Carmenere: Originating in Bordeaux, France and now widely grown in Chile. It is a deep red, wioth softer tannins than Cabernet Sauvignon and a taste hinting at berries and spices.

Now our attention turns to beer makers…
A quite anecdote: A customer strolls into the store and raves about the Mexican Lager (by Brewer’s Spring) that he made. Sure enough, he had purchased it here. His claim was empthatic – better than Cerveza from the beer store!

Lastly, November 11 is coming soon. Remember those who gave the utmost for us. To me, it is a day of remembrance – for the uncle who made it back most certainly, but even more so for the young uncle who did not.
