Check it out! Tell your friends!
Fritz Müller Müller-Thurgau Secco NV
Good nerve on the nose. Characterized by fresh fruit like green apples and peach skin, a peach skin that feels like velvet. Unobtrusive floral notes not unlike when entering a flower shop but with very fine accents. Also rose pedals, orange blossoms, even lavender pretty amazing.Paula Bosch, one of Germany’s leading Sommelier and wine consultants: “Fritz Müller is the first Secco or Perlwein that I consumed with full awareness and joy. Perlwein is the designation for a frizzante, sparkling wine that has less CO2 than either Sekt or Champagne. Made from the underappreciated Müller-Thurgau grape it stems from an idea of two young wine lovers, Guido Walter a Wine Merchant from Munich and Jürgen Hofmann a talented winemaker from Rheinhessen. This tasty wine is in every respect enjoyable and the label is equally refreshing and youthful as the wine is quaffable and drinkable. A terrific concept for a lively, fresh and fruity Secco that has climbed in the ring against the whole Prosecco world. I’m betting on Fritz Müller as the winner!” Stuart Pigott, the world’s leading writer on the subject of German Wine: “Germany’s answer to the Prosecco. Wonderfully prickling and a smash hit for the price!”
Emilio Bulfon Piculit Neri IGP
Emilio Bulfon first began collecting, old Fruilian varietals in the 1970’s, and literally was the only one to do this. Fast forward 45 years later and his winery is successful producing and selling these noble wines. While tradition drives the grape genetics, modern touches abound in the innovative winery. The Piculìt Neri is a native vine with red grapes rediscovered by Emilio Bulfon in Costa beorchia, locality of Pinzano al Tagliamento municipality, which should not be confused with the more famous white Picolit or the Friulan Red Picolit. The name derives by the local Picolit, which in Friulan language means “small hill”. It is cultivated only in the area of Castelnuovo del Friuli and Pinzano al Tagliamento, to the west of the province of Pordenone, as required by a specific Regional regulation.
Redentore Refosco Dal Peduncolo Rosso
Natural. 100% Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso from estate grown fruit.

The family of De Stefani dates back to the later half of the 1800’s, in 1971, Tiziano De Stefani (Alessandro’s father), moved his family to the Fossalta di Piave where they could grow many different grapes on the clay soils of the old river plain, while retaining their esteemed Glera vineyards for Prosecco production.With a complete dedication to as natural production as possible, the estate is organically farmed, they only rely on naturally occurring yeasts as well as never adding sulfur during vinification (since 2009), all while focusing on many varietals that they have found to create incredible results in their unique terrain. Blackberry, licorice, melted dark chocolate and sandalwood. Dry, warm and full-bodied wine, with soft tannins and a long finish. Ideal with hearty meat dishes, poultry stews and grilled vegetables, especially wild mushrooms.
