Orange & Rosé Wines
Marenas Viñedo & Bodega ‘Córdoba Blanco’, Córdoba, Spain 2018 - $24
Montepila
Winemaker José Miguel Márquez is a younger winemaker, but is fascinated in restoring the traditional winemaking techniques & grapes of his southern Spanish region. Thoroughly unique, this wine has a nutty note, but unlike nearby sherries, it’s more chestnut-like & lighter & clean & fresh. -  natural/orange
Colline de l’Hirondelle ’Ventilo’, Coteaux du Languedoc, France 2018 - $21

Chenançon

Made from a grape varietal so rare, there’s no English Wikipedia page on it; only a French version. The south of France is full of little hidden gems like Chenançon. White pepper, herbs, and wild strawberries make this another perfect summer rosé.- organic/rosé

Frederic Geschickt ‘Phénix’, Alsace, France 2018  -  $31
Pinot Gris

A protégé (and neighbor) of the celebrated natural winemaker, Chrisitian Binner, we are excited to welcome Frederic Geschickt’s wines into the shop. Kind of an über-natural, super Ramato approach to Pinot Gris, which tastes like it looks: wild, slightly spicy with robust, savory autumn fruit. - natural/orange-ish

Domaine Migot ‘Vin Gris’ Lorraine, France 2018  -  $21

roughly 50% Gamay & 50% Pinot Noir

Lorraine has a long winemaking history that goes back to Roman times. Sandwiched between Alsace & Champagne it is overshadowed by both. ‘Tis a shame, because beautiful wines like this are relatively unknown. Floral & fresh with a considerate, round texture & clean, lively mineral.  - organic/rosé

Paraschos 'Kai' Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy 2013 - $35
Tocai Friulano

80 year old vines (back when it was legally called Tocai Friulano!), hand-harvested, de stemmed, pressed & then sits on skins in open-top tanks before entering large, old barrels for 40 months. Golden, briny & yeasty with a staggeringly long finish. - natural/orange

Domaine Daniel Crochet, Sancerre, Loire Valley, France 2017 - $18
Pinot Noir

Daniel is the 4th generation grower/winemaker on this estate & has been at it here since 1996. The rosé sits on the skins for 48 hours before draining off, giving this beautiful, delicate pink hue. Bright aromas with a melody of fresh strawberry, pink grapefruit, blood-orange & pronounced mineral. - organic/rosé

Valentina Passalacqua ‘Rosa Terra’, Puglia, Italy 2018 - $25
Nero Di Troia
Valentina has become something of a sudden star winemaker, and for good reason: her wines are honest, pure, and complex. This rosé really wowed us; don’t let her popular (and delicious) Mezzorosa overshadow this one! Better yet, snag them both and compare… 
- natural/rosé
Quinta do Perdigão Rosé, Beiras, Dão, Portugal 2015 - $19

Touring-Nacional, Jaen, Alfrocheiro & Tinto Roriz​

A complex melody of beautiful, youthful flavors: raspberry, strawberry, grapefruit, passion fruit, red currant, papaya and lime. Feathery light with an elegant texture - the flavors are incredibly well integrated, so nothing jumps out, but they all linger in a very satisfying manner.  - organic/rosé

Kramar, Goriška Brda, Slovenia 2017 - $32

Rebula

Matjaž Kramar is close friends with Jean-Michel Morel of Kabaj, from whom he learned a great deal about making precise, beautiful wines. The short skin & longer lees contact give great lush depth, but it retains an incredible brightness & freshness. Elegant with a tremendous “wow!” quality.  - natural/orange

COS 'Pithos Bianco', Vittoria, Sicily, Italy 2017 - $36
Grecanico
Deep and delicious, this wine sees extended skin-contact in amphora. Bursting with orchard & citrus fruit, but supported by a chorus of intriguing flavors: green tea, exotic saffron, crushed volcanic rock, white flowers & fresh herbs. An amazingly complex texture matched by a lengthy finish. - biodynamic/orange-ish
