Cult wine producer, Francois Mikulski, has been working Dessus vineyard since 1992. The vines are over 50 years old and they face southeast on the hillside of Meursault which is perfect for maximum amount of sunlight. Wines from ‘Poruzots’ tend to be more elegant and feminine than the other Meursault premier crus. Ideal drinking window is 2023-2030.
Organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, and only 200 cases produced.
Cult wine producer, Francois Mikulski, is highly regarded as one of the best winemakers in Burgundy. This wine drinks like a $100 bottle of Meursault and is in fact made from 4 plots of 25+ year old vines in the village of Meursault. Drink now or cellar for 3-4 years. Limited quantity available.

We are tough critics of skin-contact white wines and when we first tried this gem in Italy we were blown away. After 5 months of anticipation the wine has finally landed and it is just as clean and fresh as we remember. Perfect for a hot summer day.
Organic and biodynamic farming practices, native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered, vegan-friendly, and woman-winemaker.
Sancerre, Gruner Veltliner, Vermentino lovers – This one’s for you. Grown on the volcanic island of Ischia, this wine quite literally tastes like the azure waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Our director of imports enjoyed this wine for the first time with a large bowl of pasta alla vongole after an ocean dip. “The salty sea still lingering on my lips and this light, crisp wine on that hot day was unparalleled.”
Organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, minimal intervention winemaking.
He’s done it again, folks! It’s incredibly rare to find a wine with significant weight and distinct freshness, but somehow Rougeot found a way and then topped it off with concentrated fruit and textural minerality. Decant for 30 minutes prior to serving.
Organic and biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, and unfined.
This wine was created to celebrate the birth of Louise, the first born of the 5th generation Delavenne family. This limited edition cuvée (only 50 bottles imported!) is presented in a beautifully decorated gift box.
Organic farming practices, native yeast fermentation, minimum 5 years on the lees, unfined/unfiltered, & only 3,048 bottles produced.
This olive oil is made from 150-year-old, organically-farmed olive trees grown exclusively in the Bolgheri DOC on the Tuscan coast. The olives are hand-harvested and immediately cold pressed to keep the freshness of flavors and nutritional benefits intact.
The Ceralti olive oil is particularly nice on bruschetta or as a marinade for fish or meat.
This could be considered the “sleeper” hit wine from Rougeot. It’s round and creamy with subtle acidity and delicate minerality. This drinks well above its price point.

Joseph Colin comes from Burgundy royalty. His dad is Pierre Colin, his brother is Pierre Yves Colin Morey aka PYCM, and the family owns some of the most sought after vines in the world. Purity is the word to describe Joseph Colin’s wines and this rockstar comes from 20+ year old vines located in Saint-Aubin. It is pure, laser focused and highly allocated. Only 24 bottles available!

As you wade in the current, the work week fades to gray. When the line strikes and you begin that delicate dance, there’s no choice but to be in the moment. The refreshing citrus aromas and woodsy notes are like the creek passing through the forest. It’s a West Coast Pale Ale for a West Coast way of life.
“A la reverie” means “in a dream state,” which is the perfect way to describe how we felt the first time we tried this wine with Jean-René. Sure he charmed us with truffle pasta, but the the dreamiest thing about this wine is its ability to hold its own next to strong dishes without feeling heavy. The Syrah gives it oomph while the Grenache weaves it all together with a soft, silky ribbon.
Certified organic farming practices, native yeast fermentation, and only 1,400 cases produced.

This wine is a true hidden gem. It’s made from native grapes grown in the Lepini Mountains, which are located in the small, ancient town of Cori. It’s refreshing and bright from the stainless steel fermentation, but still has a supple mouthfeel, great balance and a long, mineral-driven finish.
Organic farming practices and less than 5,000 cases produced.
This is an everyday staple. The palate is lively and crisp, but it isn’t quite as austere as other versions of Chablis. It has a creamy texture which makes it approachable and crowd-pleaser across the board.
Sustainable farming practices (Lutte Raisonnée), native yeast fermentation, and fermented in stainless steel tanks to reflect the perfect typicity of Chablis.
Did Grant Coulter just (dare I say it) single-handedly put Oregon Chardonnay on the map? Yes, Oregon Chardonnay has been around, but do you reach for it before Burgundy or California? You will now.
Organic farming practices, native yeast fermentation, unfiltered, and minimal sulfur additions only after fermentation.
This special labeling from Piazza Family Wines embodies their more lighthearted and approachable wines from the property. The 2019 Syrah is one of Gretchen’s favorite wines she’s ever made and she loves pairing it with a BBQ portobello mushroom burger!
Certified organic farming practices, 40% whole-cluster and native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered, vegan-friendly, and only 45 cases produced.
We can’t get enough of Island wine right now and this is the perfect chillable red for summer. Think Pinot Noir meets Syrah. It’s super bright, fresh, and has a kick of spice on the finish that makes it awesome with grilled seafood or poultry alike.
Biodynamic & certified organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, no filtering, and vegan-friendly.
If you like Albariño and Gruner Veltliner, Assyrtiko is the new summer white for you to try. One sip takes you straight to the sapphire-colored waters of Aegean Sea. It’s bright, clean and makes your crave something equally as refreshing like this Spiced Cucumber, Feta + Fresh Herb Salad

This wine sings. It feels like silk and tastes like vibrant red fruit and rose buds. The texture swoops in, picks you up and just puts you in a good mood. Let this wine breathe for 30 minutes and enjoy this new wave of approachable red burgundy.

Move over DRC. DDLC has arrived.
The Domaine’s eponymous vineyard offers the prettiest and most ethereal wine of the vintage. Do not, however, mistake its gracefulness as an invitation for early drinking. It is refined, lifted, etched & and one of the most allocated wines in California. Only 3 bottles available!
Organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, whole cluster vinification, and only 365 cases produced.
This is a great alternative for Barolo lovers! It is medium bodied and has a similar structure, refined tannins and a long persistent finish. Plus, we’ve already aged the wine so you don’t have to.

Paris Sigalas is idolized for his mastery of Santorini Assyrtiko and this wine is arguably one of the most acclaimed white wines in the world.
