Why Doesn’t Wine Taste Like Grapes??

We love talking about wine and have to find ways to describe ways to describe it, that include fruit flavours like blackberry, pear, apple or raspberry, but WAIT….wine is made from grapes and grapes don’t taste like other fruits, so how does this happen?

Simply put, when grapes are fermented into wine, they possess chemical compounds that are also in fruits, coffee, chocolate or lots of other things.  None of those things are in your wine, but the flavours of them are definitely there and help us, help you find wine that you will love.  Love Sauvignon Blanc, but don’t like peachy flavours, then you want to stay away from Viognier.

Resolve to try Something New and Save Money!

The new year offers a fresh start and an abundance of resolutions.  This year we want YOU to break out of your comfort zone and resolve to try a new style of wine. To make it easy, we are featuring six styles that you might not have tried before.  We have the perfect SELECTION to try something different.  Three reds and three whites that are all $20 off when you make with us or $10 off to take home.

Is Merlot your go to???  Give Chilean Carmenere a try!

Love Pinot Noir??  Give South African Pinotage a go!

Love Shiraz??   Spanish Rioja is a must-try!!

Are you sweet on Riesling?? German Muller Thurgau is a great match!

Like Sauvignon Blanc??  Try California Viognier for a change!

If Chardonnay’s your grape…Try Luna Bianca!
