USA VIEW MENU
Vitis vinifera, the grape species of the wines we like to drink, was brought to the States by European immigrants generations ago in an attempt to mimic wines of the old country. The climate was a bit of a challenge in the northeast and mid west, but sunny California proved perfect. Today, with a greater understanding of enology, hundreds of varietals flourish all across this great country.

Tuesday, July 19th Provence VIEW MENU
In most people’s minds when they think of Provence, they think of Rosé which is fun-loving and easy drinking! But there are many serious wines as well, the white wines are crisp and red wines are a deep garnet and juicy. Located on the Mediterranean coast in Southeastern France, this region gets plenty of sun!

Sicily, the hot volcanic island just off “the boot”, has recently undergone a wine revolution. Throughout history, Sicilian wines were known for their sweetness. However, modernization and serious winemaking are changing that. Nero d’Avola, Sicily’s most important varietal, is capable of making fine, robust reds.

France’s “King” of wine regions, Bordeaux is one of our favorites. These classic wines are blended with primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Let’s not forget the crisp, mineral-driven, white wines and unctious Semillion based dessert wine!
