This Month's Wine Club Theme:
NOVEMBER 2019  -  Eastern Loire Valley*
 
Wines from the eastern portion of France’s Loire Valley; we’ve added an asterisk because that is the much abbreviated name for the working title of this month’s wine club theme. The full banner we’re going with is more along the line of “Wines from the Lesser Known Appellations of the Loire Valley (Which also Happen to be Wonderful for Thanksgiving Dinner)” – a name that sounds like a poorly chosen dissertation topic.
OCTOBER 2019  -  Valencia

Valencia might not be the best known region of Spain for winemaking, but a lot of wonderful wines are coming out of this part of the country. A growing number of winemakers are turning the tide - from a region known for cheap, bulk wines, into a unique, quality-driven region with its own special flair! This month we celebrate Valencia with a trio of wonderful, red wines. 

SEPTEMBER 2019  -  Alpine Wines

As the summer begins to wind down, we're headed up to the mountains to look at what makes wines from high-elevations so unique and special... and delicious.

AUGUST 2019  -  Corks, Crowns & Cages

This month, instead of delving into the wonderful wines inside the bottles, we are talking about the bottles themselves. Or, more accurately, the bottles’ closures. There are natural corks, of course, but also screwtops, crown caps, glass stoppers, plastic corks, composite corks and more. Why do some winemakers choose these options and how does it effect the wines? We will try to explain… and sample a handful of delicious wines while we’re at it. 
JULY 2019  -  indigenous grapes of Sicily

Generally speaking,'Sicily' is always a popular theme. The idyllic nature of the island, filled with romance and intrigue, what's not to like? Plus, it's an area renowned for its amazing cuisine and that also includes wine... a staple of the dining table. This month, it's deep-deep Sicily, with a look at grapes indigenous to the island.
JUNE 2019  -  1 Grape - 3 Names
 
This month we have selected a wine made entirely from the grape Schiava. The second is made completely from Vernatsch and the third is 100% Trollinger. Yet, they are all made by the same grape. For June's Wine Club we will unravel this riddle.
MAY 2019  -  Unique Rosés of Italy
 
Spring will be upon us in it's entirety at any moment, so it's time to break out the rosé wines for the season (though they should really be enjoyed year-round). We're leaving the standard "Provence-style" behind and heading east, and then south, to enjoy the rosés of Italy. Unique grapes give unique flavors - all of which will be wonderful to savor over the upcoming Summer months.
APRIL 2019  -  Wait...What's That Grape Again???
 
One of the grape's we'll be examining this month is called Friularo. No, that's not a typo, nor is it an April Fool's prank - rather it is part this month's exploration into the wonderful world or very rare and unique grape varieties.
MARCH 2019  -  Rioja
 
Rioja is the best-known wine region in Spain. It’s a large region with a long history and, like virtually all of Spain’s wine regions, it has a convoluted past. This month we explore this fantastic region with a look back at it's history and a look ahead at the exciting developments occurring there. 
FEBRUARY 2019  -  natural Chile


The buzz around natural wines has been taking hold for a little while now. Old World wine growing nations, especially France, have really led the way in this category. Recently though, natural wines from Chile are becoming more frequently sighted on shelves and wine-lists. The ironic thing is, natural wines have been a way of life in Chile for a long, long time.  
JANUARY 2019  -  "starting the new year off right" wines from Bordeaux's Right-Bank

We're starting 2019 off with a bang by sampling wines from arguably the most celebrated wine region in the entire world.
