Wine Details (click on titles for more info)

Rufia Tinto 2016
Tart fruit, bright aromatics, lots of blueberry and cranberry notes with fresh herbs and underbrush. Low alcohol yet medium bodied and dense flavor profile.

Tiepido Modena DOC 2014
Dense color, light bodied, refreshing red that is best served chilled. It has a bit of a spicy and stemmy nose, that leads to a crisp mouthfeel. A lot of blue fruit dominates the nose. It is bottled as a frizzante wine at 3 atmospheres of pressure.

Gogi’s Wine 2013
This is a traditional eastern Georgian amber wine. The juice was left on the skins and lees for a period of six months while in the traditional qvevri vessels. The wine attains a deep amber hue due to the extended skin contact. The bouquet is quite fresh with notes of apricot and persimmon with chamomile and even a bit of turmeric on the nose. The palate is rich and broad with some exceptional mouthfeel due to skin contact. The wine is not bitter though, the flavor is moderated with just a touch of residual sugar.

Prantner Old Vine Welschriesling 2015
Multi-layered, mineral-driven, delicate nuances of yellow apples and herbs. Fresh acidity, elegant, lingering.

Vernaccia di Oristano DOC 2006
This is a golden color wine with an amber hue, which becomes even richer as it ages. The bouquet is intense and persistent, delicate and floral with a clear hint of almonds and a scent of toasted hazelnuts as the wine matures. Distinct notes of sea salt and a surprising acidity round out the finish.

Official Rules

Must be 21 years of age or older and located in the CONTIGUOUS UNITED STATES, excluding Alabama, Oklahoma, and Utah.

Water Usage in Agriculture: Dry Farming

Yesterday in the United States, President Trump rolled back some of the Obama-era water pollution regulations. Most notably, the Environmental Protection Agency decreased federal protection of small waterways and wetlands that only began being protected by the Clean Water Act five years ago. These changes are supposed to help farmers who stated that the protections were overly broad, but also significantly benefit real estate developers and other industries.

Why the Natural Wine Movement is Gaining Momentum

Throughout the US and the world, people are embracing natural—in their skincare, in their food, in their cleaning products, and increasingly in their wine. Natural markets are booming, and wine is no exception. Natural wine sales are estimated to top $200 million annually in the United States, according to Forbes.

Although there is no official certification for “natural”, generally natural wines are farmed using organic and biodynamic methods, whether or not the farm is certified organic on the state or national level. Organic and biodynamic farming methods emphasize protecting the soil and decreasing pollution, not utilizing additives or synthetic pesticides, and cultivating biodiversity.These methods especially emphasize an ecosystem approach, so growers may have multiple species growing in their vineyards, like wildflowers among the vines.
