In-Store Tasting:
New arrivals Mourchon and Pasquiers!

Our French container has landed...

We are thrilled to receive six new wines from our two direct import Domaines in the Southern Rhone. Both of these fantastic family run Estates have developed a "cult like" following here at the shop and by cutting out the middle man, you are getting great wines at great prices…plain and simple. Come by and load up on these great values!

 

Domaine de Mourchon

This marks our 11th vintage working with Walter McKinlay and his team. Located in the beautiful hamlet of Seguret, Mourchon is by far the best producer in the Village. Their Rose is one of our most requested and with the early reports on just how good the 2016 harvest was, we expect this to be among the best ones ever. The two reds are very versatile-think of the regular Cote du Rhone as your Tuesday night pizza wine, and the Tradition as a more "serious" food partner. In fact, I think the Tradition gives many Gigondas and even Chateauneufs a run for their money (at half the price!)

Domaine des Pasquiers

Three years ago our Rhone guy Phil travelled to France in search of a Cotes du Rhone to direct import. Located near Seguret in the small village of Sablet, Domaine Pasquiers was the winner (after tasting close to 500 wines!) and the wines were an immediate hit. We are simply overwhelmed with the reaction from our customers to these wines and they remain one of the best kept secrets in the South of France. When Caroline Mazard came from the winery to do an in store tasting last year she presented some 2015 samples and while the Sablet and Gigondas were terrific as expected, a new standout emerged... The Plan de Dieu. We liked it so much we bought half the production! We challenge you to find better reds under $20 from anywhere! All wines are certified organic and amazing value.

 

Phil visited the winery and met the whole team last year. A great bunch of people and a true family operation!
