2019 Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe Châteauneuf-du-Pape ‘Télégramme’
2019 was one of the best years we’ve seen for CDP. The wines have more depth and concentration that the 2018s and the structure is unparalleled. Snag this for the cellar!

2016 Massimago Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG
Made from select grapes from a single vineyard situated on a hilltop at 350 meters above sea level. It is the best expression of Massimago. Vertical, full-bodied, complex – it is a pure, traditional Amarone.
Certified organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, minimal sulfur addition, woman-winemaker.
2021 Massimago ‘Duca Fedele’ Valpolicella DOC
This lighter bodied example of Valpolicella helps us transition from the lemon butter sauces of summer, to the red sauce/creamy mushroom sauces of fall. The bright red fruit keeps it refreshing, while the savory and herbal elements give it depth. This is our gaux-to Italian red for the season.
Certified organic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, minimal sulfur addition, woman-winemaker, and only 1,250 cases produced.
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.
2020 Tzora Vineyards Estate ‘Shoresh’ Red Blend
Located high in the Judean Hills, the Shoresh vineyard has a wide range of small parcels varying in elevation and soils, such as Moza Marl, Terra-Rosa and deep bands of limestone. These soils produce depth and a unique sense of place for this wine.
Organic farming practices, hand-harvested, kosher, and the first Israeli winery to be certified to the standard of FAIR’N GREEN.
Kosher Supervision: Rabbanut Mateh Yehuda
2020 Massimago ‘Marchesa MariaBella’ Valpolicella Ripasso DOC

Certified organic farming practices, woman-winemaker, native yeast fermentation, minimal sulfur addition, and 80% of all electricity used at Massimago is produced by solar panels.
