Clear Creek Douglas Fir Brandy





Clear Creek Douglas Fir Brandy...$44.99 / 375ml
Inspired by the obscure Alsatian spirit Eau de Vie de Bourgeons de Sapin made from pine buds, our Douglas Fir Brandy is truly a tree in a bottle. It took ten years of experimentation to successfully capture the true essence of Oregon’s state tree.
This brandy, also known as eau de vie is made from bright green springtime Douglas fir buds, hand picked, and immediately infused in our clear very delicate and aromatic brandy. This maceration is then re-distilled and re-infused with fresh new buds, giving the spirit its vibrant green hue from the Douglas fir’s natural chlorophyll. No artificial color has been added.

“Spiced and pure with juniper, forest floor, fresh wood, Christmas tree and sweet vanilla; long and quite amazing.” Anthony Dias Blue, Patterson’s Tasting Panel, 2007

“…the resulting eau de vie is a penetrating blast of forest aroma. On the palate it has the herbal, stomach settling effect of an Italian digestif.” Eric Asimov, The New York Times, August 15, 2007

2018 Tissot Patchwork Chardonnay Jura

 Certified Organic and Biodynamic





2018 Benedicte & Stephane Tissot Patchwork Chardonnay Jura....$37.99
"The Chardonnay grape has a long history in the Jura region. It came to the Jura from Burgundy and is the most important varietal in the area, counting for 45% of the vineyards. Its success is explained by its adaptability to the harsh winters and the limestone clay soils which give the wines freshness and minerality.

Stéphane Tissot’s Patchwork Chardonnay is a blend of different vineyards, all over 25 years of age, a blend to take in both the clay and limestone terroirs that Stéphane’s Chardonnay vineyards occupy. The vineyards of the domaine are all farmed with organic and biodynamic practices, grapes are hand harvested, only indigenous yeast is used for the fermentations, no fining and only a small amount of sulfite is added to the wine before bottling.

This bottling is a perfect way to get familiar with the expression Chardonnay develops on the Jurassic terroir: a blend of beautiful, fresh fruit and smoky minerality. This is his entry level cuvée; it delivers a lot of quality and invites to try his single vineyard bottlings later on." - Gayot



Troon Vineyard Piquette Methode Ancestrale

Certified Biodynamic
Vegan Friendly
Natural Wine





Troon Vineyard Piquette Methode Ancestrale...$22.99

The first question we get about this wine is always, “what is piquette?” It is many things, but basically it is frugal farmer fizz, a type of natural wine that has been made for hundreds, if not thousands of years. Those frugal farmers wasted nothing and used the juice and skins left after pressing the wines they would sell to make wine for themselves and their workers. Today we have recaptured that spirit, which fits in so well with our biodynamic style of agriculture. After pressing our estate white and rosé wines, there is still substantial juice left in skins as we press very gently. To that we add a touch of water, then let it macerate overnight in the press. The next day, we press that juice into a stainless steel tank, where begins a native yeast fermentation. Just before that fermentation is complete, we quickly bottle the new wine under crown caps to finish fermentation in the bottle. The resulting sparkling wine is a delight. Fresh and fizzy with bright fruit flavors. Piquette may have bubbles like Champagne, but our Piquette! is more about picnics and summer sipping - or better yet, gulping!

Greek Orange Wine - Glinavos Paleokerisio Semi Sparkling Orange Wine



Greek Orange Wine

 




Glinavos Paleokerisio Semi Sparkling Orange Wine...$18.99 / 500ml
Innovative and at the same time a traditional wine with a characteristic orange colour

A unique in its kind orange, semi-sparkling and semi-dry wine, which impresses with its distinctive and totally traditional vinification. It is produced from the indigenous white wine grape variety Debina with the addition of a small percentage of the red variety Vlahiko.

It is a special type of wine, which revives the well-known traditional semi-sparkling wine of Ioannina, produced in the past by the locals. The little natural carbonate reveals the richness of flavours and aromas with a sweetness that blends in with all the other elements.


Colour: Characteristic orange colour which resembles that of honey, tea or a cognac colour.
Nose: Intense and highly complex aromatic composition with characteristic aromas of apple, butter, and sweet spices like cinnamon and cloves.
Mouth: Rich, refreshing and well - balanced with main aromas of apple, butter flavour with a mild oxidation, as well as aromas of cinnamon and a hint of vanilla. Aftertaste reminiscent of sweet cherry and refreshing bubbles that highlight the complexity of aromas in every sip.

Las Jaras Wines






2020 Las Jaras Old Vinde Rose...$26.99
Gary Venturi Vineyard: 83% old vine, dry farmed, organic: carignan, zinfandel and petite sirah
Hillside Vineyards: 15% old vine, dry farmed, certified organic: zinfandel
Ricetti Vineyards Carignan: 2% old vine, dry farmed, certified organic: carignan
Yes, this is a pink party wine—but it’s a classy pink party wine. This is a rosé you want to bring home to meet your parents. It deserves to be drunk alongside imported tinned fish, salted butter, and impeccably made, artisanal baguettes. If this rosé could talk, it would have a lilting French accent and quote Godard. Our approach to rosé is to think less about the varietal makeup and more about the style and vibe it conveys. So even though our cépage has changed—past vintages have been 100% carignan or only 35% zinfandel, whereas this vintage is 69% zinfandel—the wine is still an evolution of its signature style. Our goal is a wine that is both fruity and savory, and every year we nudge the wine into the direction it needs to go in a quest for balance, deliciousness and refreshment. On the nose, the 2020 Rosé is all about big red fruit and hibiscus. On the palate, it is packed with acid and minerality, with a bone-dry finish. It is also texturally interesting, as a result of destemming the zinfandel and pressing immediately.

The Carignan for this wine was whole cluster pressed as soon as the fruit was received at the winery. This method of juice extraction gives us a savory and mineral laden wine with a fine texture. The Zinfandel was destemmed as soon as it got to the winery, after which, we added it to the press with its stems. This allowed us to get great red fruit character and avoid extracting too much bitterness. We added 10ppm sulfur and after 24 hours of settling the wines we racked for native primary fermentation. Once these lots had fermented to dryness, we combined them into one tank for storage on their lees until bottling at cool temperatures to discourage malo-lactic fermentation, but it went through anyway. Close to the bottling date we added a small amount of sulfur and filtered the wine.



2019 Las Jaras Glou Glou Red Wine...$23.99
54% Zinfandel, 37% Carignan, 5% Petite Sirah, 3% Pinot Noir, 1% Cabernet Sauvignon
This vintage can make your homebound meal sing. Glou Glou is the kind of light red that tastes like sparkles and bright, summer fruit. It has enough acid to stand up to your favorite pasta and tomato sauce, with intense berry notes that can perfectly complement a smoky, tangy BLT. Serve slightly chilled—this is the most refreshing red wine ever, and the perfect antidote to long evenings at home. Most of the grapes underwent carbonic maceration, the classic fermentation method of the Beaujolais, which means that fermentation happened inside of berries themselves, causing them to explode in happy, boozy ecstasy. That’s how you’ll feel when you drink this wine—it dances in your mouth. It is great, you will love it.

To make this wine we assembled 29 small lots that had been vinified separately using various fermentation techniques to make a layered cohesive blend. Most of the lots were fermented with carbonic maceration, a gentle process that helps to keep early-harvest wines from becoming too tannic. After 5-9 days, depending on the lot, we pressed the juice off its skins where they fermented natively in tank. Then, to keep the wine bright and fresh, half of the lots were aged in barrels and half were aged in stainless steel tank. This wine received no additions except for a small amount of sulfur and it was filtered prior to bottling. We do not degas our wines, so it may have a bit of spritz, especially when young.

2018 Las Jaras Sweet Berry Wine...$29.99
54% Carignan | 28% Zinfandel | 12% Charbono | 3% Cabernet Sauvignon | 3% Valdiguie Old Vines | Mendocino County
We are so excited to share the 2018 Sweet Berry Wine with you! This was a long, cool vintage, which resulted in a nuanced, refined wine that will age wonderfully. It’s perfect for long, autumn evenings with friends—grab a warm blanket, start a fire, and watch as the flames illuminate the beautiful, deep ruby wine inside your glass. As the days grow shorter and colder, you’ll find even more occasions to pop open a bottle: holiday dinners, après-ski at the lodge, New Years Eve. This wine is loaded with spice and bright, berry fruit, making it wonderfully versatile with food. We hope it’s a wine you’ll keep coming back to for years to come – for your health!

The grapes for this blend are grown on old vines and sourced from vineyards in Mendocino and Sonoma Counties. Most of the Carignan, Zinfandel and Charbono grapes come from Gary Venturi’s vineyard in Calpella, where they are dry farmed using sustainable farming techniques and grown in Yokayo sandy loam soils. Nine percent of the Carignan comes from the organic Riccetti vineyard in Redwood Valley. We also source some fruit from Green Valley in Solano County: Valdiguie from Quail Run vineyard and a bit of Carignan from Parenti Vineyard, both organically grown. The Cabernet grapes are sustainably farmed on Sonoma Mountain at Berger’s Oak Shade Ranch in Goulding on volcanic gravelly loam soils.
