February is Piedmont Month

So starting in 2020, we're going to be featuring a famous wine region EVERY month. And since we get to pick, we chose the Piedmont. Come in during February and try some of the Piedmont's most famous characters as well as hidden gems. We'll be pouring an amazing Moscato, a steely Gavi, an electric Arneis, a friendly Dolcetto, a sassy Barbera and the always sexy Barolo.

We even made a little YouTube video on the region and the wines. It's a little geeky but you know how we are! We'll be pouring flights and glasses as well as having incredible prices on bottles as well!

Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Bertolani Lambrusco Rose Secco

    #1 Bertolani Lambrusco Rose Secco

    Most of the Lambrusco that has hit our shores has been syrupy, nasty stuff like Ruinite (ruin is in the name) and whatever they pour in the Garden of Olives. This is a different creature altogether, bringing soft red raspberry and pink grapefruit up front before finishing clean and dry. It will change your worldview in a single serving.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Sur de los Andes Cab Sav

    #2 Sur de los Andes Cab Sav

    Complex, lush and full-bodied with rich black fruit and spice. A touch of dusty blackberry and nice grip at the finish partially due to over a year in oak. Watch out, Napa! (behind by 4 bottles)

  • Foxbrook

    #3 Foxbrook

    A delicious patio pounder coming out of Sonoma, California. Bright notes strawberry and watermelon with subtle hints of floral and minerality. Sweet without being overbearing balanced by beautiful acidity. Pair with a spicy Asian dish and call it a night! (behind by 4 bottles)

  • sweet sunset Mocha coffee

    #4 sweet sunset Mocha coffee

Fun New Arrivals

  • Maimai Syrah

    Maimai Syrah

    So pretty. Brings a clear nose of Gimblett Gravels terroir beneath lush soft blue and black fruit with lovely violet and lavender notes. Palate is clean, balanced and very approachable. Just a hint of the Northern Rhone's meatiness but mostly bright fruit and enough acidity to hold it in check. Maybe the best NZ Syrah out there??

  • Clos Mazurique

    Clos Mazurique

    Along the Loire river you'll find Saumur. Cab Franc dominates the red plantings and we can see a prime example with this bottle. Perfumed floral aromas, dark cherry, forest floor and mineral. Gorgeous mouthfeel and smooth tannic structure. Bright acidity making this wine an easy drinker.

  • Porron Decanter

    Porron Decanter

    The porron wine pitcher is a festive way to serve wine. Either use as a decanter or just pick up the porron and tilt it so that a thin stream of wine pours directly into your mouth! It takes some skill, but it is fun at a party to see how well you and your friends master the technique. Each porron holds 1 liter, which is a perfect size to hold a bottle of wine.

  • Armas de Guerra Mencia

    Armas de Guerra Mencia

    An excellent introduction to Bierzo's native varietal, the palate is fresh, elegant, and clean. Energetic aromas of fresh blue fruits, violet and white pepper, plus a subtle touch of licorice. Supple and gently sweet on the palate, offering sappy boysenberry and floral highlights with a hint of smokiness.
