Light Sweeter Bubbles

Light Fruity Easy Beginner


Poquito Moscato Poquito Moscato $9.50

Lightly sparkling, fruity and sassy, Poquito is small in size but big on taste. Delicate floral aromas combine with a sweet yet refreshing palate of ripe peaches, pears and apricots. Apply liberally at any social occasion. Great right out of the bottle but really amazing with mint and rum as a mojito!



Flare Moscato Flare Moscato $11.00

Not from Italy but this soft bubbly wine comes from near the eastern Spanish coast and lends itself to savory fare. The sweet notes are quiet; it's more steely, with orange blossom and rose flavors. A floral quality lingers throughout. Put it with eggs and chorizo for an instant party!



Veuve du Vernay Veuve du Vernay $12.00

French bubbly on the affordable side. How good can it be for this price? Prepare for a nice surprise. Lovely strawberry nose, toasty, creamy, floral flavors with a hint of white pepper and rose petals, and a long, dry finish.



Tomasella Ose Tomasella Ose $15.00

Ready to see what other sweeet bubbles besides Moscato Italy has to offer? From the Northeast of Italy comes this lovely demi-sec. Not quite as sweet as Moscato, and with more body. Lovely plum and cherry flavors. Enjoy on our patios or with our lovely soft goat cheeses next door.



Tintero Moscato Tintero Moscato $16.00

Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.



Saint Hilaire Blanquette di Limoux Saint Hilaire Blanquette di Limoux $16.00

Sparkling wine that predates Champagne by at least 150 years! Light, crisp and fruity, if you like Champagne give this a try for a bargain, you wont regret it.



Vecchia Modena Chiarli Lambrusco Vecchia Modena Chiarli Lambrusco $17.00

Delicious, full of dark raspberry, violet, rose, blueberry and black pepper aromas & flavors. Called “Old Modena” as the winery in Modena (just above Bologna in Emilia Romagna region) is 150 years old. Done in the "secco" or dry style, this is nothing like the one you'd find in the "olive garden". This is the quintessential wine to drink with a friends on a hot summer day.



Fizz 56 Fizz 56 $17.00

Possibly the most beautiful ruby red color you’ll ever see in a glass. This is the red counter to Asti’s Moscato showing intense rose petal and candied cherry aromas. Big, sweet flavors of cherry supported with raspberry and strawberry notes. A fun and irresistibly delicious treat.



Taburno Folius Sparkling Falanghina Taburno Folius Sparkling Falanghina $20.00

Sometimes I think I need an intervention with regard to Italian wines. A sparkling Falanghina? Really? Oh yes and it's so delicious. Made similar to Prosecco and "extra dry" means the fruit is the star of the show. It’s clean, a little soft and charming without being pretentious. Nice soft nose of apple and lemon cream with a little pie crust. You may not want Prosecco again, but good luck finding this anywhere but here or another geeky wine shop.



Maley Cider Maley Cider $24.00

Abandoned alpine orchards planted upwards of 4000 feet, half of them in the French Alps surrounding Chamonix and half in nearly-deserted Alpine towns in the Italian Valle d’Aosta. No chemicals. Some of these sleepy apple trees haven’t been picked in decades. The only Italian cider made with heirloom apple varieties. It's just the best, really.

    #3 Bonavita Red

    Made from four grapes harvested later than usual to achieve a greater ripeness and smoothness. A deep and inky wine, with ripe plum and blackcurrant aromas. Nice ripe fig and cherry with chocolate and licorice flavors. Just enough oak to give it some backbone. (behind by 2 bottles)

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #4 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. (behind by 3 bottles)
