Rafael Palacios BOLO ‘Mountain Wine’
We are absolutely loving the Bolo from Rafael Palacios. The grape is Godello and it hails from the granitic, terraced soils of Valdeorras. Refreshing and full bodied with a light effervescence, it is a wine we are very happy to have in the retail area!
THE OJAI VINEYARD
Adam Tomlach, winemaker and owner at The Ojai Vineyard, worked at many great wineries such as Zaca Mesa, and starting Au Bon Climat until finally opening up his own winery. His first vines were planted in 1983, and he consistently challenges himself to make wines with nuance and elegance.

The Best of Paso Robles – Broadside Wines + Giornata
Cabernet Sauvignon and Wild Ferment Chardonnay
We are HUGE fans of the Broadside Wines, winemaker Brian Terrizzi and his wife Stephy Terrizzi, who is the viticulture specialist, started Broadside and Giornata Wine labels out of their small wine-making facility in the heart of Paso Robles. They are the king and queen of high quality Paso Robles wines for the best price, these wines are amazing and priced for everyday drinking. Broadside gets all its fruit from right there in Paso, and lets most of the wine making happen in the vineyard!

A saignée of Pinot Noir from various sites around the Valley. Tank fermented and then left in neutral barrels for 5 months before being racked back out to tank and bottled.

A grassy, perfumed and slightly exotic effort, this Sauvignon Blanc offers up plenty of lime peel, mineral and exotic flowers to go with more richness and texture on the palate. Tank and barrel-fermented and then aged in neutral wood, it’s delicious and a perfect hot summer day white that won’t disappoint. Drink now!

Favorite Sparkler: Val de Mer French Sparkling Brut Nature Rosé
Val de Mer is the latest project of Chablis’ newest star, Patrick Piuze. After more than a decade making wine in Chablis for the likes of Olivier Leflaive, Verget, and Jean-Marc Brocard, Patrick Piuze began his own label in 2008, sourcing top quality fruit by using the many connections he had made in the region over the years. The wines were immediately praised by critics and a new star was born.

The palate is warm, smooth and seamless with spice and hints of animal, as well as some earthiness. Silky and textured with fine-grained tannins. Really elegant and fresh, a classic Musar. Drinking beautifully right now!
