Eric Bordelet Sidre Nouvelle Vague

Normandy, France · 6.5 %

Certified organic (practicing biodynamic) natural cider from one of France's greatest cider makers, Eric Bordelet! Bordelet is a sommelier turned Cider maker. After working in some of France’s top restaurants in the late 80’s early 90’s, Bordelet moved back to take over his family farm. This farm just happened to be about 50 acres of certified organic cider apple, perry orchards. Located in southern Normandy, the soil is a rich red color, a sedimentary soil made up of granite and a clay subsoil. This medium dry cider is from his younger trees and fermented in a fresher style, but still with his hallmark minerality and terroir.

Cantillon Kriek

Brussels, Belgium · 5.5 %

Blend of lambics and sour cherries - 200 g of cherries per litre of beer. Beer with a slightly acidic taste of red fruit complemented with subtle almond flavours. Kriek brings out its maximum “fruitiness” when drunk young. With age the lambic will take the upper hand, but this is at the expense of the fruit component. Our sour cherries, which are certified organic, come from Turkey. The fruit is blended with lambic that is on average 20 months old. Since sour cherries have a very pronounced taste it is necessary to select a lambic that has enough character so that it will be a good match for the fruit. After soaking for two to three months, the lambic has extracted the full colours, fragrances and flavours of the sour cherries. At that point it is blended with one-year-old lambic, which contributes the sugars necessary for secondary fermentation in the bottle. We only use fresh fruit and, as is the case for wine, Cantillon beers can be referred to in terms of vintages. Prevailing weather conditions have a major impact on the ripeness and quality of the fruit, and this is why the taste of the brewery’s fruit-based beers will differ slightly from one year to the next.

Teliani Valley Glekhuri Kisi Qvevri

Kakheti, Georgia

Teliani Valley Winery is currently one of the top producers of quality Georgian wine. Established in 1997 on the site of a 19th century winery in Teliani village, its first vintage was released in 2000. Teliani Valley has the longest tenure on the American market of any Georgian company.

Made from the traditional Kisi grape grown in the villages of Akhmeta district. Whole bunches are fermented in underground qvevri, lending the wine it’s amber colour, distinctive flavour and mildly tannic structure.

XXVI Talhas Branco do Tareco 2022

Vila Alva, Alentejo Portugal · 12 %

Grape Variety: Antão vaz, Perrum and Roupeiro

More than just a winery, XXVI Tahlas (Tahlas = clay amphora) represents an intergenerational effort not only to preserve centuries-old winemaking knowledge and techniques before they are forgotten, but to capture a level of refinement and elegance many thought impossible in traditional amphora winemaking. Talha wine in southern Portugal was all about one word- freshness. Grapes were picked early and fermented gently on the skins in large talhas that had been sealed with pês (a mixture of olive oil, pine resin, and beeswax), which was applied in a paper thin layer and glazed on with intense heat to neutralize the flavor (these wines are NOT retsina-y). The wines were then removed quickly, the Talhas traditionally tapped in November of the same vintage for the villagers to consume communally. The resulting wines were fresh, juicy, and in many cases, shockingly complex and ageworthy.

Orange $11.00

Jutta Ambrositsch Revision (Reisenberg) Gruner Veltliner

Vienna, Austria

Bright green herbs (marjoram), mineral cut, with just ripe nectarine and mango, pleasantly bitter pineapple core and a saline wash of the palate on the finish. As Ambrositsch has chosen to not be in the DAC, they cannot use the vineyard names on the label, but this wine comes from one of their prized vineyards, the Reisenberg. It was planted all to Gruner Veltliner in the 1960’s. Ambrositsch described the soil as creamy and stinky, mainly with slate and gneiss. The vines are planted quite spaced out and they only make a maximum of 1,000 bottles per year. The wine is structured and rich, a beautiful gruner from 50+ year-old vines. The Ambrositsch wines are all micro-cuvées and they are a delightful way to discover the historic Vienna terroir through the lens of a young and fun artist. While her winemaking style could be called “natural”, with no additions of yeasts, enzymes, or sugar, and only a minimum amount of sulfur, very few of the wines show any of the funky qualities of many wines that share the moniker.

White $15.00

Château des Annibals Rosé Suivez-moi-jeune-homme MAG

Provence, France

Served from a 1.5L MAGNUM bottle, everything tastes better from a MAG!! 35% Grenache, 50% Cinsault, 10% Syrah, and 5% Rolle. Chateau des Annibals is a certified organic female owned winery powered by 100% renewable solar-and-wine energy. Nathalie Coquelle’s commitment to sustainability includes regularly controlling the oxygen levels in the tanks in order to use as few sulfites as possible during productions. The estate is also one of the oldest in the Provence, having been built in 1792! A coppery salmon color that’s as striking in its depth as its exuberant nose of raspberry, lime, mint, and warm sand. Its organic viticulture and pedigree as the oldest winery in the appellation show on the unusually rich palate of strawberries and blueberries, with a crystalline minerality that lends freshness heading into the persistent, red-berried finish.

Rose $10.00

BloodRoot Sonoma County Pinot Noir 2021

Sonoma, CA

100% Pinot Noir from a blend of some of our favorite vineyards across Sonoma County. A California Pinot through and through, this well fruited wine is balanced by its grip and acidity. It’s hard to find a better Pinot for the money than this one.

Red $13.00

Stella Crinita Petit Verdot

Uco Valley, Mendoza

100% Petit Verdot! All fermentation is spontaneous, using nothing more than the native yeasts that are present in harvest. No additives or invasive procedures are used in vinification and no SO2 is added at any stage. The winery is all estate and they do not fine or filter any of the wines. The vineyard has been Demeter certified Biodynamic since 2012 and production remains extremely small. This hand harvested, single vineyard wine is 100% Petit Verdot from the Demeter certified biodynamic estate vineyard in the Vista Flores region of the Uco Valley. Notes of plums and blackberries soaked in vanilla beans and baking spices on the nose. A plush texture of ripe figs with macerated cherries and sandalwood mixed with lavender and nag champa dominate the palate . The wine finishes with some serious grip from both grape tannin and a little time in oak and concentrated leather like dark mixed berry fruit roll up.
