Vini Vidi Vici Sav Blanc Vini Vidi Vici Sav Blanc $10.00

A quintessential summertime sav blanc. Bright citrus and nectarine aromas with a touch of minerality. Light flavors with a lovely balance of crispness and ripe fruit. Nice flavor and balance for a wide range of poultry and fish dishes and a killer value. With as easy drinking as it is, it needs to be - better get 2!



Donausonne Blaufrankish Donausonne Blaufrankish $12.00

If you can't pronounce this grape don't worry! Neither can anyone else. Sweet berry and red fruits in this light, pretty wine from Hungary. Rich flavor with no bitter tannins. A great sweeter red that is a big seller here. Many folks feel its the only red wine for them!



Garamvari Blanc de Blanc Garamvari Blanc de Blanc $15.00

Just a stunning sparkler. We were blown away by the baked apple, biscuit and soft yet persistent acidity. Not a vintage high dollar French BdB but a low dollar Hungarian done Methode Traditionelle. Just try it.



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #1 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time.

    From Castilla-La Mancha in Central Spain, a unique blend made with the Garnacha Tintorera grape. Not only is the skin red, but so is the flesh.

Definitely one you should try, especially at this price! (behind by 2 bottles)
