2021 Cantine di Marzo Fiano di Avellino DOCG
This is Margaux’s favorite wine of all time. Fiano is perfection. This grape grows just an hour from the Amalfi Coast and it embodies the citrus fruit and sea breeze of the region. Dry, light, refreshing and easy to enjoy.
Certified sustainable, hand-harvested, members of the independent winegrowers association, vegan, and less than 700 cases produced.
2013 Domaine Bohn Alsace Lieu-Dit Schieferberg Dry Riesling

2021 Piro Points West North Canyon Vineyard Chardonnay
This Chardonnay comes from one of our most trusted winemakers, Marc Piro. The vineyard sits less than 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean which gives it a refreshing and crisp structure, but round fruit flavors. It’s the first Chardonnay under the Piro label and we were given exclusive access to allocate it for our club members.
Sustainable farming practices and only 120 cases produced annually.
2020 Storm Curtis Vineyard Carbonic Cabernet Franc
This small-lot, site-specific Cabernet Franc is the newest addition to the Storm lineup. Through carbonic maceration, Storm was able to create a very drinkable, fruit-forward Cab Franc without loosing the herbaceous character of the grape. All we can say is BRAVO! We like to serve this chilled as we light up the BBQ.
Sustainable farming practices, native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered, minimal SO2 and only 85 cases produced.
2020 Domaine Rougeot ‘Les Grandes Gouttes’ Côte D’Or Bourgogne Blanc
We call this “Petit Puligny.” While the vineyard sits only 500 meters from the Meursault-Charmes premier cru vineyard, the wine has a lighter, racier profile and a beautiful minerality that makes it taste more reminiscent of Puligny-Montrachet than Meursault. The production level is tiny, so we are extremely excited to be able to offer this wine exclusively to our Club Argaux members.
Organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, unfined and only 100 cases produced.
2021 Cantine Carlo Mazzella Ischia Biancolella
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.”

2020 Château de Montfrin Cotes du Rhone ‘A La Reverie’ Rouge
“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.
2021 Domaine de Oliveira Lecestre Petit Chablis (half-bottle)

The care and precision that went into this wine is unparalleled.” – Lexi Jones, Director of Imports
