Mary Taylor pours Mary Taylor Wines!

We’re super excited to have our new friend Mary Taylor in the store to introduce y’all to her amazing line of wines! Mary’s been in the wine trade forever so when she set out to produce her own line of wines she wanted it to fill a gap that she saw in the market. She noticed that there wasn’t enough honestly made, terroir-driven wines that we’re affordable for the average drinker. Enter Mary Taylor Wines! These beauties are delicious, authentic, and expressive of the vintage and the place that they came from and on top of all that they’re all under $20 a pop. Come check us out, meet Mary, and get a glass of real wine!

The Wines of Poggio la Noce

When we were in Italy a few months back we were privileged to get to meet the amazing people behind Fiesole’s incredible Poggio la Noce winery. Enzo and Clair’s hospitality was unparalleled and their love for the their land, their grapes, and the little ecosystem they had made was clear at every moment. We’ve not been so moved by a new producer of Sangiovese in quite some time and we’re all excited about the potential of this amazing new winery. If you’re an Italian wine fan, you’re going to need to get to know these wines, pronto!

While the Mary Taylor wines are classically styled, clean and pristine examples of what regional European wine is about, Old Westmister is bringing Pet Nats, Rose in a can, and Piquette all grown and made in the great state of Maryland. Tradition v. innovation, new v. old, modern v. classical. We’re loving all this drama!

Winery of the Month Series: Botanica and Fram

This month were super excited to get to introduce you all to two of South Africa’s best and brightest young winemakers in person!  On May 10th we’ll be having Boston’s own Ginny Povall, founder and winemaker at Botanica and Big Flower, and Thinus Kruger of Fram in the store and in the flesh to pour some of their best bottles for you.  

Ginny and Thinus represent the best of what this young generation of winemakers are doing in South Africa.  Like California, France, Australia, and Chile, a new breed of young winemakers are setting up shop and making wines that challenge our expectations when it comes to their region’s wines.  For a long time, South Africa was thought of as a second-rate wine producing country where quality was lacking and conventional agriculture and winemaking reigned. All of that is changing with people like Ginny and Thinus who are taking advantage of the numerous old vineyards and applying a more holistic and hands-off approach to both farming and vinification.  Their wines speak to the place and the grapes themselves. They demonstrate that South Africa has great terroir and that that terroir has a unique and special identity. You’ll find clarity and depth in the Chenin and Pinot Noir of Botanica and you’ll find complexity and definition in the Pinotage of Fram.

If you’re a regular at our store then you already know how excited we are about the South African wine scene since we can’t stop talking about it.  If you want to see why we’re so enthused then you’ve got to come by and have a chat with these two people. We’ll be pouring the wines from 5-7 on the 10th but we’ll also be featuring the wines all month long in our Winery of the Month series so we’re also offering them all up for 10% off for the month of May.  Thanks to our man and South African wine importer and advocate extraordinaire Pascal Schildt for the set up, we’re going to have a hell of a time!

Cider Series: West County Cider from Shelburne MA

We are positively stoked to get to have these beautiful ciders in the store! These humble folk out in Shelburne are one of the leading cideries in New England, no, they’re one of the leading cideries in the entire USA. On top of being the oldest standing American cidery (est. 1984) they’re making honest and true cider that expresses varietal, typicity, and their terroir. They’re style is heavily influenced by winemaking traditions and ideology which is why their cider expresses a complexity rarely found amongst the mass produced, back sweetened, custom crushed juice that dominates the market. We’re proud to welcome West County to our store and we’re elated to get to share them with you.

There’s more, we’ll also be offering all of these bottles at 10% off for the day of the tasting alone so this is your chance to get amazing bottles at an amazing price.

These genius hippie witches have been making some of the world’s most fascinating, complex, and original beers in Morganton NC for a few years now and we’re overwhelmed with joy to get to offer them up to y’all. Unlike most American craft breweries, Fonta Flora seeks to emphasize and celebrate the craft beer as an agricultural product, as the product of farming, ecology, and culture. Most breweries are making beer with ingredients from all over the world and then calling it local, and they’re also making beers without any consideration for the actual ingredients themselves. No one ever asks who grew the hops or where the malts came from, that is unless you’re the people at Fonta Flora. Prepare to have your minds blown by the reality of Terroir Beer!
