Get your sparklers ready, because this week we are going All American!  Our founding fathers were known for their fondness for wine and this week we are going to celebrate their genius with wine from the good ol' U. S. of A.!  There were only 30 wine producers in CA in 1970... today that state alone has over 700 wineries.  All 50 states produce some sort of Vino.  Let's see what's happening around the country starting with Carabella Chardonnayfrom Willamette Valley OR.  Heading South to Mendocino, CA for 'Tous Ensemble' Rose from Copain Wines. Finishing up in New York with a Vinoteca favorite: Hermann J. Wiemer 'Field Cuvee' made in the Fingerlakes .

Weekend Tasting:  Orto Vins
Jul 9

Weekend Tasting: Orto Vins

This is a first for Vinoteca... A weekend tasting solely dedicated to one winery.  Orto Vins is a Spanish biodynamic producer located in the Montsant region of Catalan.  Led by the dynamic Joan Asens, a guru of the biodynamic practice, Orto Vins' focus is on the ancient varieties indigenous to the area.  The winery is located literally in a garage in a tiny farming community in the El Masroig subregion.  Joan's plots of 20 hectares have vines ranging from 18 to 100+ years, all meticulously cared for.  These wines show balance, structure yet speak of the terrior like only naturally produced juice can. 

We will be featuring Les Argiles Blanc,  Les Argiles Negre, and Orto Tinto

Lambrusco Day Tasting!

One of the most misunderstood categories of wine, Lambrusco, is seeing a resurgence among Vinofiles and hipsters. Native to Northern Italy, specifically Emilia-Romagna, these ancient effervescent wines range from dry to sweet. Lambrusco is so old, in fact the varietal is mentioned in the first known farming manual in 160 A.D. Stop in Tuesday evening as we sample several styles of Lambrusco, with Jacob from Banfi wines.
