October Wines of the Month

2018 Terres de Roa, Tresse a Lier, Saint Pourcain, France
Regularly $19.99, October Special Price $16.99
Saint Pourcain is one of the lesser known areas of the Loire Valley, and Tressalier only grows there.  Organically farmed, this is an exciting expression of a bright, tart, and refreshing varietal.

2018 Josef & Phipp Brundlmayer, Gruner Veltliner, Kremstal, Austria
Regularly $16.99, October Special Price $14.44
Father and son team Josef and Philipp offer an amazingly balanced, pure, Gruner Veltliner. Every vineyard is vinified separately to mirror the terroir, and the resulting union demonstrates spiciness and power.

2018 Les Equilibristes, “Hirsute” White Blend, Perigord, France
Regularly $13.99, October Special Price $11.89
This organically farmed wine is on the “natural” side, and spends two days on its skins to make a medium-bodied, textured wine that boasts flavors of golden apple, pear, lemon zest, and a long lasting subtle tartness that makes it totally refreshing.

2018 Verget, “Terres de Pierres” Macon-Villages, Burgundy, France
Regularly $19.99, October Special Price $16.99
Verget is the negotiant project of Jean-Marie Guffens, long considered the best winemaker in the Macon. ‘Terres de Pierres’ is a collection of parcels that have nice stony terroir, leading to a mineral-driven Chardonnay rich with tropical fruit.

2018 Hofgut Falkenstein, Krettnacher Altenberg Riesling Kabinett, Mosel, Germany
Regularly $21.99, October Special Price $18.69
Organically farmed, single vineyard, single barrel bottlings from the Hofgut Falkenstein offer some of the most exciting wines from the Saar. Anyone who thinks they don’t like Riesling only feels that way because they’ve never tasted a wine from Hofgut Falkenstein.

2017 Francois Chidaine, “Les Argiles” Chenin Blanc, Loire, France
Regularly $29.99, October Special Price $25.49
Francois Chidaine is one of the most important winemakers in the Loire Valley. An early champion of organic farming, Chidaine has been making some of the most vibrant Chenin Blancs in France for 30+ years, and his ‘Argiles’ is a cuvee from Vouvray, vinified across the river at his winery in Montlouis, hence the Vin de France designation.

2018 La Crotta di Vegneron, Chambave, Valle d’Aoste, Italy
Regularly $15.99, October Special Price $13.59
La Crotta di Vegneron is located in Valle d’Aoste, in the heart of the most northwestern mountain ranges of Italy. We love mountain wines, they offer light bodies and beautiful fruit. This wine is totally delicious and a little too easy to drink.

2018 Les Equilibristes, “Le Joufflu” Red Blend, Pays de la Loire, France
Regularly $17.99, October Special Price $15.29
Spontaneous fermentation is the secret behind the alluring, exciting mouthfeel of this wine. Grolleau deserves to be considered every bit as outstanding as Cabernet Franc, and this wine is an amazing example of why we feel that way. Light bodied, fun, and rich in flavor.

2017 Gerard Lebaupin, “Clos de la Brosse” Saint Amour, Beaujolais, France
Regularly $18.99, October Special Price $15.99
Saint Amour is one of the lesser known Beaujolais Crus, but it’s every bit as delicious as it’s better known neighbors Moulin-A-Vent and Morgon. Saint Amours typically offer a little bit more pleasing cherry fruit, and this is as pretty a Gamay as we’ve tried.

2015 Chateau la Croix Romane, Lalande de Pomerol, Bordeaux, France
Regularly $26.99, October Special Price $22.94
Pomerol offers some of the most immediately pleasing wines from Bordeaux, and is quickly gaining a reputation for being equal to or better than the best wines from the left bank. This wine has a great balance of fruit and salinity, picture perfect Bordeaux.

2016 Clos du Mont Olivet, Cotes du Rhone Vieilles Vignes, Rhone, France
Regularly $18.99, October Special Price $15.99
The Sabons have been in the Rhone for hundreds of years, and their old vine Cotes du Rhone is one of the best values of the region. Rich fruit balanced with olive tapenade and fine tannin, this wine offers everything you could want.

2016 Santini, “Poggio al Moro” Bolgheri Rosso, Tuscany, Italy
Regularly $21.99, October Special Price $18.69
Bolgheri is one of the most sought after, and often expensive, sub-regions in Tuscany as it’s the only region that allows for a high percentage of French varietals. The most super of super Tuscans, this wine shows the true character of Italian wine and terroir, and it tastes like Tuscany even though the blend is only 30% Sangiovese.
