Grazie to the customer who gifted us a MAGNUM of Pol Roger Champagne tonight. We really do have the best customers. #thankfulalltheway
All hail! Our allocation of 2010 Opus One is officially sold out!
Say hello to our new favorite spirit: brandy! After last night’s component tasting, the fabulous Germain-Robin Select Barrel XO Pinot Noir Brandy — not pictured as there was none left — is one of the best craft spirits we’ve ever tried.
Anti-Beaujolais Nouveau dinner was wonderful. Huge grazie to all for attending!

Sometimes the American wine industry appears to exist in two parallel universes. In one, the accumulated knowledge of marketing, winemaking and viticulture only go so far, and after 50 harvests or more, it becomes apparent that, paradoxically, the less winemakers know, the more they begin to understand. The other universe is a less modest one, where the air is heavy with a smug sense of self-glorification. In this universe, Napa Valley billionaires charge $250 a bottle for their first vintages and young winemaking consultants have more 95-point wines than Miley Cyrus has boyfriends.
Note: Unless otherwise directed, all Thanksgiving wine orders will be available for pick-up or free neighborhood delivery starting November 22nd, 2013. GOBBLE GOBBLE!
