Lazzaroni Ferro China


Lazzaroni Ferro China...$23.99 / 750ml
What is Ferro-China… An Italian tonic first made famous in the last decades of the 1800s by a Pharmacist from Milan named Bisleri and a Doctor from Rome named Baliva. Both men combined the pharmaceutical remedies of the bark of china (chinchona, used to make quinine) and iron citrate, an iron based salt, made from citric acid and iron sulfate, into a drinkable therapeutic, bitter tonic. Ferro-China is part of the Italian Amaro category, but lighter in color, body and alcohol than most other digestive, Amaro drinks.
Ferro-China also enjoyed an export boom to the US market during Prohibition. It was considered a pharmaceutical product and could be prescribed by Doctors. In Italy, a teaspoon a day was given by mothers to their children at that time to aid their growth.
Lazzaroni first started the production of Ferro-China in the late 1800s but discontinued production about 30 years ago. The family recipe was recreated this year.
Today, Lazzaroni Ferro-China joins Lazzaroni Fernet and Lazzaroni Amaro in the portfolio. Claims are no longer made for any medical or growth benefits, and a prescription is no longer need to obtain historic Lazzaroni Ferro-China.
With a herbal mocha coffee, and roasted chestnut aroma and a hint of vanilla with delicate spice overtone, this liqueur is traditionally enjoyed over ice as an aperitif, as a digestif after dinner and as a modifier in cocktails.

T Edward Wine Gulp Hablo Orange Wine


New orange wine!

Drinks like Vinho Verde but made for the Fall!

The Parra family’s pursuit came from the devotion of the three brothers (Francisco, Javier, and Luis) to find a sense of place in their home of La Mancha. They founded their property with the conviction to organically and biodynamically farm every vine under their care.
The Parra family works two large vineyards in La Mancha near the town of Las Messas (The Tables), totaling some 445 acres, or about 180 hectares. One of the vineyards is named Entresendas (Between Paths) and sits within the dried river bed. Entresendas benefits from the rich, alluvial soils, common to old river beds and perfect for the cultivation of grapes. The other vineyard is officially named Olla del Monte (Cooking Pan in the Mountain), but is known locally as the Cuesta Colorá because of the colorful scarpland soils of chalky clay covered in a fine layer of pebbles that hold the day’s heat well into the night.
For the Gulp/Hablo, the extremely gulpable wines, they tapped Juan Antonio Ponce of Bodegas Ponce to make the wine. With this partnership, they were able to create a wine that beats the competition without sacrificing on quality.

Margins Santa Clara Valley Counoise


2021 Margins Santa Clara Valley Counoise...$24.99 / 750ml
Varietal: 100% Counoise
Brix at harvest: 19 
Production: 223 cases 
AVA: Santa Clara Valley 
Vineyard: Sattler’s Family 
In 2021 this vineyard was farmed completely organically! The organic conversion of this vineyard over the last four years of working with it has been one of my proudest accomplishments. Part of the Margins mission over the years was to work with growers while they transitioned their vineyards to organic farming by providing guidance as well as assurance that the grapes would have a home. I believe that if I worked with solely organic vineyards, I would not be using my role in the industry to its full potential to enact agricultural change. As of harvest 2021, all vineyards Margins works with are organically farmed. 
Vinification: 100% destemmed. Fermented on skins for ten days. Aged in neutral oak for three months. Native fermentation, no fining, no filtration, no other modifications or additions except 20 ppm of sulfur dioxide the week before bottling. 
Bio: Ed Sattler planted his 2.7 acre backyard vineyard to Mourvèdre and Counoise in 2009 and has been intimately involved in farming it since the beginning. Over the last few years of organic conversion, he has invested in an in-row cultivator for weed management, built up the soil with seasonal cover crop, and completely upgraded the drip irrigation system. This hot, dry site in the foothills of the southern Santa Cruz Mountains--but not high enough in elevation to be considered part of the SCM AVA--has an intense diurnal swing, bringing cool temperatures every evening and lending to the preservation of acidity in the grapes.

Honorie Cidre Normand


Honorie Cidre Normand...$16.99 / 750ml
4.3% ABV

All the orchards are in the heart of the Pays d'Auge in Normandy, which allows constant monitoring of fruit all year round.
Our cider is made according to the rules of the art of "pure juice”. That is to say with a blend of apples, from the sweetest to the most bitter, picked at their ripest, pressed into pure juice, and left for a first round of fermentation.
Prior to bottling, the ciders are inoculated with yeasts generating a second fermentation that happens in the bottle.
Clear, sparkling, slightly foamy with a beautiful golden color and slightly orange.
Intense nose with strong aromas of ripe fruit.
A well-balanced bitterness and sweetness.
The cider mixes fruity and round flavors that will accompany all your dishes, cheeses and desserts.

Faccia Brutto Spirits

At Faccia Brutto we produce natural and delicious organic Italian spirits using old world methods, and sourcing from sustainable botanical producers.

Faccia Brutto Fernet Pianta...$43.99 / 750ml
Fernet Pianta is a love letter to both my grandfather, Peter Pianta, as well as all the line cooks I ever worked with. Pete would make tinctures for my grandmother when she needed some digestive aid and my line cook buddies, well, we needed relief after a long night of service. We blend 21 ingredients including saffron, myrrh, aloe ferox, peppermint and gentian root in non-GMO neutral grain spirit for two weeks. We add water and filter, then add sugar and organic peppermint oil and bottle. This fernet has far less sugar than the bigger brands and is naturally colored with roasted chicory root. Enjoy neat or in a Toronto cocktail.

Faccia Brutto Amaro Gorini...$46.99 / 750ml
This amaro is named for my grandmother, Lena Pianta. She loved southern Italian spirits and we think this one would’ve made her bar cart. A blend of 13 botanicals including gentian, rhubarb root, fennel seed, and sweet and bitter orange rest for 3 weeks in non-GMO neutral grain spirit. The mixture is proofed down to 40% abv and barrel aged in used whiskey barrels for a minimum of 3 months. When we feel it’s ready to go, we filter from the barrels and sweeten with organic cane sugar as well as organic caramel color. We add further fresh orange peel and let that sit another several days. It’s strained again and bottled. We love it on the rocks with an orange peel but it shines in a Paper Plane cocktail.

Black Manhattan
Roman Highball

Faccia Brutto Centerbe...$43.99 / 750ml
Centerbe Faccia Brutto is our take on a European herbal liqueur that is both refreshing and delicious. We use a number of fresh and dried herbs in our blend and macerate them in non-GMO neutral grain spirit. The dried botanicals like lemon balm, anise hyssop, nettles and coriander are macerated for a full week, while the fresh herbs like parsley, tarragon, bay leaves and marjoram are left overnight to preserve color and freshness. The resulting tincture is proofed down and sweetened with organic cane sugar and bottled at a rousing 45% abv.
Use for these classics:
Naked and Famous
45% alc./vol
Faccia Brutto Apertivo...$32.99 / 750ml
Our aperitivo is a bittersweet rendition of the classic “red bitter” but with more character. We infuse 17 fresh and dried organic botanicals such as gentian, kola nut, hibiscus and rhubarb root in non-GMO neutral grain spirit for two weeks. At that point we add water and fresh orange peels (2 oranges per bottle!) and let that steep overnight. We strain and filter the resulting tincture and add organic cane sugar and cochineal to achieve the ruby hue we all love.
Use for these classics:
24% alc./vol
Faccia Brutto Amaro Alpino...$48.99 / 750ml
This amaro is a bittersweet distillation of 14 alpine botanicals including cinchona, rhubarb root, spruce buds, elecampane root and eucalyptus. They rest in non-GMO neutral grain spirit for two and a half weeks, are strained and proofed down to 40% abv. They’re aged in used whiskey barrels for a minimum of 3 months. When it’s time is up we strain out of the barrel and filter. It’s then sweetened with a blend of organic dark clover honey and organic cane sugar and bottled. Delicious neat with lemon peel and equally enticing in a Saw Tooth cocktail.

Rated 94/100 Decanter Magazine

2012 Charles Heidsieck Champagne Vintage Brut...$112.99
2012, a vintage, an evidence, a "classic" for Charles.
Very lemony (blossoms, zest and candied peel), with some red-berry and fresh tobacco-leaf notes. Impressive richness and concentration, the creaminess from lees beautifully matched by the fine mousse and mineral freshness. The latter also powers the structured and saline finish that makes a serious statement. A blend of 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay, disgorged in 2020. Drink or hold.
Rated 95/100 James Suckling
Disgorged in 2019 with eight grams per liter dosage, the 2012 Brut Millésimé offers up aromas of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers and clear honey, complemented by hints of toasted bread, citrus zest and linden. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly fleshy and nicely concentrated, with lively acids and a pinpoint mousse, it's more generous and demonstrative than the 2008, but it will nonetheless reward a bit of bottle age.
