May Wines of the Month

NV Ca di Rajo Prosecco Extra Dry, Veneto, Italy
Regularly $11.99, May Special Price $9.99
An open bottle of this bubbly will transport you to the hills of Treviso – about an hour north of Venice. Extra-Dry means it’s a bit fruitier and fuller-flavored than many other proseccos. Soft cheeses and salty snacks are a great way to bring this wine’s fruitiness to the forefront.

2015 Dama Del Rovere  Soave Classico, Veneto, Italy
Regularly $14.99, May Special Price $12.74
Soave was one of the first Italian white wines to catch on in the USA – but was soon overshadowed by oceans of Pinot Grigio. We think Soave is much more interesting. This wine comes from organic vineyards perched on the slopes of an extinct volcano. The wine is light, floral, and bone-dry – Spring in a bottle! Great with seasonal food such asparagus and artichoke dishes.

2015 Vadiaperti Fiano di Avellino, Campagna, Italy
Regularly $16.99, May Special Price $14.44
Fiano is one of the most important grapes of southern Italy and today is considered among Italy’s best white wines. This is a classic example, with notes of cherry blossom, honey, almond and apple. Enjoy with your favorite seafood dinners or a simple tomato salad.

2015 Spiess Silvaner Feinherb, Rheinhessen, Germany
Regularly $14.99, May Special Price $12.74
The grape Silvaner is grown throughout Germany and is currently the “secret weapon” of sommeliers and wine lovers everywhere. It has Riesling-like levels of acidity, but fuller and rounder, with more exotic and tropical fruit flavors. Perfect for Asian food or slightly spicy food.

2015 Navarro Sauvignon Blanc, Mendocino, California
Regularly $19.99, May Special Price $16.99
Navarro is known mostly for elegant white wines and has had a loyal cult following since the 80s, spread through word of mouth and their mailing list. Until very recently these wines were nearly impossible to find on the East Coast. This is an excellent example of California Sauv Blanc, with flavors of fig, grapefruit and fennel. A wonderful pair with grilled branzino.

2015 Bodegas Frontonio Macabeo, Aragon, Spain
Regularly $16.99, May Special Price $14.44
This is new territory for most of us. Valdejalon is a small, relatively unknown wine region in North-Central Spain. This Macabeo shows vivid flavors of peach and pear with great acidity and minerality. Razor clams or other fresh seafood are delicious for this prefect summer time wine.

2016 Quinta da Raza Rose, Vinho Verde, Portugal
Regularly $12.99, May Special Price $10.99
Here we have a rose from the north of Portugal, made from the local Padeiro grape. This comes from the area of Vinho Verde and, like the whites from this region, the rose has that signature spritz which makes for great summer sipping. A slight fizz is always amazing with fried appetizers.

2015 Bodegas Frontonio Garnacha, Aragon, Spain
Regularly $16.99, May Special Price $14.44
This is fantastic Garnacha from our new favorite Spanish producer. Normally known to produce big, jammy wines with high alcohol, this Garnacha defies expectations and gives us something a bit lighter, fresher, with great flavors of cherry and raspberry, and just a hint of leather. Try this with grilled favorites like pork or lamb chops.

2015 Sandro Fay Rosso di Valtellina, Lombardy, Italy
Regularly $19.99, May Special Price $16.99
This is Nebbiolo from high altitude vineyards perched along the Italian-Swiss border. Classic Nebbiolo flavors of rose, anise and leather, yet without the massive tannin usually associated with this grape. Brown butter and sage pasta is a classic pairing for this wine.

2015 Matthiasson “Tendu” Red, Napa, California
Regularly $22.99, May Special Price $19.54
This is a liter bottle of incredibly addictive, gulpable red wine from Steve Matthiasson whose California wines often have Italian roots. This one is a blend of Barbera, Aglianico and Montepulciano. Lightly chilled, this becomes the ultimate BBQ wine.

2014 Quinta de Saes Dao Tinto, Dao, Portugal
Regularly $14.99, May Special Price $12.74
If you are looking for quality, value, and authenticity in wine, no other region can really hold a candle to Portugal. This is a field blend of indigenous grapes from the Dao region, which displays lavender, black pepper and cherry. Drink this with anything you love to grill.

2014 Big Basin Vineyards “Homestead” Rhone Blend, Santa Cruz, California
Regularly $38.99, May Special Price $32.99
This is a big, feisty red from the high altitude vineyards of the Santa Cruz Mountains. Made from Mourvedre, Grenache, Carignane, Syrah, and a splash of Cab. Full-bodied with blueberry, pepper, rosemary and a rich, round texture. Bring out the steaks and chops to taste this wine at its best.
