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.”

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.

“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.

“This 2020 Dry Riesling from Norris Vineyards is something I am truly excited to share with you. I met the Mckinley family about two years ago now, and have been looking forward to the release of this wine ever since. This wine has everything I am looking for; namely that green apple crunch that I typically can’t find in domestic versions of this grape. The care and precision that went into this wine is unparalleled.” – Lexi Jones, Director of Imports
