we're proud of the quality and diversity showcased on our large '$15 & Under" table. We're always bringing in new, exciting wines as well as maintaining a broad selection of 'Old Reliables' - here's a teaser:
Hooked!, Mosel, Germany 2016 - $13

Riesling

A deliciously fun Riesling from the famous blue slate soils on the riverbanks of the Saar River in Germany. Citrus and pear aromas introduce a bright, clean and gently sweet Riesling with a touch of acid to keep it lively. Green citrus, a delicate mineral saltiness & golden fruit. - sustainable/white

Thierry Chardon ‘Les Chardons’ Touraine, Loire Valley, France 2016 - $15

Sauvignon Blanc

This is an absolutely wonderful wine made by a lovely husband and wife winemaking team. It’s difficult to imagine a cleaner, fresher tasting wine than this. Delicate grassy, floral notes with a touch of lemon-drop creaminess. - organic/white

Mayu, Valle del Elqui, Chile 2017 - $15

Pedro Ximénez

Pedro Ximénez is best known as one of the main grapes to make sherry, but it makes wonderful table wines as well (see: this bottle). Fruit from the highest vineyard in Chile, at 6000 feet. A substantial wine with rounded notes of melon, fresh green herbs, especially sage, & soft earth. - sustainable/white

Terre Gaie ‘Stema', Veneto, Italy 2016 - $15
Pinot Noir

It’s rare to find a Pinot Noir at this price that can truly be classified as refined and elegant. Well, here it is. From slightly higher elevation vineyards in northern Italy, Terre Gaie produces this wine from family owned, estate fruit. Darker floral notes with soft earth and delicate smoke.  - organic/red

Friend & Farmer, Castilla La Mancha, Spain 2017 - $15

Verdejo

This project represents the collaboration of brothers Francisco, Javier & Luis Parra and the exceptional winemaker Juan Antonio Ponce. The brothers work vineyards on a dried riverbed of rich, alluvial soils. The Verdejo is deep and bright with a touch of nut and a ton of sunshine. - natural/white

Chât. du Cèdre ‘Blandine Le Blanc’ Gascogne, SouthWest, France 2016 - $12

60% Ugni Blanc & 40% Colombard

The taste of spring bottled and delivered to you! Floral, fresh and lively. Bright, sunshine-y and irresistibly joyous. Should we keep throwing adjectives? - biodynamic/white

Purato Vittoria, Sicily, Italy - $14

60% Catarratto & 40% Pinot Grigio

 This is a great everyday day wine combining the fresh, easy drinking qualities of Pinot Grigio with earthier, slightly smoky and more complex notes of southern Sicily's indigenous Catarratto grape. Citrus & tropical fruit wrapped in a blanket of soft earth, raw nut & subtle sage-like herbs. - organic/white

Denthis, 'Stamnaki' Peleponnese, Greece 2018 - $15

Assyrtiko

Assyrtiko is perhaps best known from the island of Santorini, but it is also divine in the southern mainland of Greece. Fine, bright citrus notes on the nose lead to a bone-dry, supercharged mineral wine with great acidity. Perfect with so many seafood dishes and anything involving sunshine. - sustainable/white

Domaine Rimbert, 'Petit Cochon Bronzé' Languedoc-Roussillon, France 2018 - $15

80% Cinsault & 20% Syrah

“The Tan Little Pig” has almost become a celeb of sorts in Brooklyn, and for good reason. High elevation and vine age add depth and complexity to this summer porch pounder. Ripe cherries, guava paste, and sunny minerality all harmoniously work together. Equally at home at a party or a serious dinner.  - organic/rosé

Clovis, Southern Rhône Valley, France 2016 - $15

Syrah, Caladoc, Merlot & Alicante

Biodynamically farmed since 2008, Jean-Pierre Serguier and his son, Florian, make wonderful wines; in tune with their beautiful vineyards and with minimal intervention, to let the wines speak for themselves. Dark, rich earth with a touch of barnyardy funk and and vibrant zest and acid. - natural/red
