2019 Sol Real Vinho Verde White...$8.99
SOL REAL VINHO VERDE WHITE is bright and citrusy, due to its natural acidity. With dominant apple and grapefruit aromas and a splash of green, herby notes, SOL REAL brings the fun and the flavor. Produced with Arinto, Trajadura & Loureiro grape varieties and at 9.5% alcohol, this baby is ripe for the picking.

2019 Quinta do Regueiro Trajadura / Alvarinho....$13.99
70% Trajadura and 30% Alvarinho
Intensely mineral profile, with floral and orange peel nuances. Reveals a great purity in the mouth, of refined but austere style, serious, strong, and very sophisticated.
Recognized as one the foremost producers of boutique vinho verde in Portugal, Quinta do Regueiro is fast becoming synonymous with top shelf avant garde white wines.
Since 1988, Quinta do Regueiro has been using old-school methods to produce some of the most prized Alvarinhos in Portugal. Having started with one single vineyard in the estate's "backyard," today, Quinta do Regueiro is producing approximately 40,000 bottles of Alvarinho (and blends). With a style recognized by few and admired by all, these wines are all about the details...these, begin in the vineyard.


2018 Regueiro Alvarinho Reserva...$19.99
From the sub-region of Monção and Melgaço, this wine has perfumed fragrant fruitiness with hints of a creamy texture. It is rich and full in the mouth, touched by spice and pepper and likely to age for a while. It will be ready to drink from early 2020.
Rated 91/100 Wine Enthusiast Magazine


2017 Mariposa Dao White Wine...$13.99
Bright, citrusy with a surprisingly elegant texture. Quinta da Mariposa White showcases the Dao region to a tee. A blend of three of the region’s dominant grapes, the wine brings to life white magnolia notes with honeysuckle and lime. Kind of like drinking a field of wild flowers…all year round. Unoaked.
GRAPES: Encruzado, Malvasia Fina, Cerceal


2016 Ramilo Portuguese Red...$12.99
compare to $15.99 at Wine.com
Grape varieties: Touriga Nacional and Aragonez
The floral aromas of the Touriga Nacional combine perfectly with the elegance of Aragonez. Well balanced with a soft finish and a nice deep color
Food Pairing: Red meat dishes and intense flavoured cheeses


2018 Jackpot Vinho Regional Lisboa Red Blend...$9.99
Made exclusively from indigenous Lisboan grapes, this easy-drinking, good-looking, well-balanced Portuguese wine will quickly become the talk of the town. The grapes ripen slowly producing a rich, juicy wine loaded with red fruits. Well balanced and delicious. We bet you you’ll like it.
Lisbon has always been about discoveries. The Atlantic Ocean gave the city every reason to explore, learn from, and engage with other cultures. It also gave it every reason to be the strength of Portugal’s empire that spread across the world.
Jackpot is but one more treasure from the land of discovery. In honor of one of Europe’s oldest casinos still in operation (since 1931), The Casino of Estoril, Jackpot is about calling on our history and our future.

Regueiro Alvarinho Reserva == great white!

Vinho Verde is the biggest wine producing region in Portugal, located up in the cool, rainy, verdant north west. The vines grow in fertile, granite soils along rivers that flow from the mountains of the east and burst out into the ocean between golden surfing beaches. From this unique region and its native grapes comes a unique white wine. 

Recognized as one the foremost boutique producers of old-school Alvarinho in Portugal, Quinta do Regueiro is fast becoming synonymous with top shelf avant garde white wines.  This is a wine that you can age for up to 5 years too, unlike a lot of Vinho Verde producers

Feudi Montoni a Sicilian Super Star





Feudi Montoni a Sicilian Super Star

We have been working with the Feudi Montoni Grillo Timpa and Nero D'Avola Lagnusa for a few months now. Recently we reached out to our the importer and grabbed a handful of cases of their lovely 2019 Rose and stunning 2015 Nero D'Avola Vrucara.


2019 Feudi Montoni Rosato Nero Mascalese...$19.99
The 2019 Rosé di Adele from Feudo Montoni lifts from the glass with a pretty yet understated bouquet, showing sweet florals with hints of mint leaf, ripe apple, and gingery spice. On the palate, soft textures are offset by zesty acids and saline-minerals, as its fruit leans more toward ripe melon and sweet herbs. The finish is medium in length, yet mouthwatering and just begging me to take another sip. This is yet another Nerello Mascalese Rosato that’s truly worth the hunt.
Rated 90/100 Vinous


2019 Feudi Montoni Grillo Timpa....$19.99

Luminous straw yellow. Delicate aromas of lemon, lime, sage and minty herbs. With aeration a note of Moscato Bianco-like orange blossom, grapefruit and sweet spices emerge. Fresh and juicy, with very good vibrancy to the flavors of fresh citrus fruits and minty herbs. The finish is long and juicy, offering a hint of powdered rocks on the tail end.
Rated 92/100 Vinous


2017 Feudi Montoni Nero D'Avola Lagnusa...$18.99
Made with organically farmed fruit, the 2017 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Lagnusa is a terrific entry-level wine from sunny Sicilia. You get a lot of authentic charm here with variety-driven tones of black fruit, scorched earth and chopped olive. Those aromas find nice harmony while also showing charming intensity.
Rated 89/100 The Wine Advocate


2015 Feudi Montoni Nero D'Avola Vrucara...$53.99
Tasted from magnum, the 2015 Sicilia Nero d'Avola Vrucara is a dark and penetrating wine with a chiseled and pungent side that delivers dried cherry and blackberry preserves. There is a point of ripeness, maybe even jammy cherry with lots of inky dark fruit. This remains one of the benchmark bottles for Sicily's banner grape Nero d'Avola.

107.78 proof
10+ Years Old

The result is an evolving bourbon with layers of flavor.

SweetWater 420 Strain Stash Box





SweetWater 420 Strain Stash Box...$16.99 / 12pk assorted

Includes 3 cans of each


SweetWater 420 Strain Trainwreck Hazy Double IPA
The Strain keeps rolling along with this hazy double IPA. Aromas of citrusy orange hit first with a caboose full of vanilla and pine notes following. Billowing dank aroma and strain-specific terpenes jump the whole thing off the rails.
Super Silver Haze

SweetWater Super Silver Haze Lager
Thirst-quenching lager with dank, citrus and earthy notes. Brewed with strain specific Terpenes for that aroma you know and love.

SweetWater 420 Strain G13 IPA
This aromatic super-hybrid sticky IPA is first and foremost a phenomenally delicious and drinkable beer, with the added bonus of an olfactory experience that mimics that of the legendary G13 cannabis strain. The IPA base brew has a great body, good head and nice amount of haze at a pleasurable 6% ABV. To work with the malt bill, the brewers added some of their dankest hops, Columbus and Simcoe, plus two dry hop additions. To achieve the aroma, our brewers found the perfect botanically-sourced, strain specific terpenes and married them with proprietary natural hemp-type flavor, both perfectly complementing the hops in the IPA.

SweetWater 420 Strain Mango Kush
A second sticky hit from 420 Strain, an American Wheat packed with herbal, juicy mango notes and a distinctive dank nose. Strain specific terpenes and natural hemp-type flavors complement the hop and malt bill, delivering a euphoric ale with that fresh olfactory bonus rip.

Amazing Biondi Santi 2016!!!






2016 Biondi Santi Rosso di Montalcino....$109.99
6 bottle case price $594

I am immediately smitten by the Biondi-Santi 2016 Rosso di Montalcino thanks to the purity of the aromas on display. The bouquet literally submerges the senses in Sangiovese, with those delicate aromas of wild rose, violets, wet earth and brambly forest berry. Background notes of licorice, camphor ash and balsam herb come into steady focus. I am delighted by the intensity and the immense focus of this wine. This Rosso di Montalcino stands with the best of Brunello and gives us good reason to have very high expectations for the 2016 vintage of Brunello di Montalcino that will be released appellation-wide at the beginning of next year. This is a solid mid-weight Rosso with good structure and fine points of fresh acidity that move the wine with determination and grace smoothly over the palate.
Rated 95/100 The Wine Advocate
Underbrush, wild berry, rose and camphor aromas waft out of the glass along with whiffs of rosemary and graphite on this medium-bodied red. It's linear, savory and balanced, delivering red-cherry, pomegranate, star anise and white-pepper flavors set against vibrant acidity and polished tannins. It shows breeding and finesse. It's ready now or you could hold for even more complexity. Drink through 2026.

Cigar City Jai Alai IPA
Jai Alai, a game native to the Basque region of Spain, is played on a court called a fronton. Jai Alai players attempt to catch a ball using a curved mitt whilst the ball travels at speeds up to 188 mph! Proving they have a sense of humor the Spanish dubbed this game, with its ball traveling at race car speeds, “the merry game.” Tampa was once home to a bustling Jai Alai fronton but sadly all that remains of Jai Alai in the Tampa Bay area is this India Pale Ale that we brew in tribute to the merry game. The India Pale Ale style of beer has its roots in the ales sent from England to thirsty British troops in India during the 18th century. Pair Jai Alai India Pale Ale with beef empanadas, deviled crabs and other spicy dishes.

Much like Florida, the Cigar City Brewing Mixed 12-Pack has something for every beer lover: the bold hop flavor and subtle caramel notes of Jai Alai IPA, the effervescent lemon-lime quality of Florida Cracker Belgian-style White Ale, and the bright, citrusy flavors of Guayabera Citra Pale Ale.

Balcones Texas Whisky






Balcones Baby Blue Corn Whisky...$33.99
BLUE CORN WHISKY
The first Texas whisky on the market since Prohibition, Baby Blue is crafted from roasted heirloom blue corn. This rich and oily maize adds new sophistication to the corn whisky tradition while keeping the freshness and verve of classic American distilling. Intentionally youthful, Baby Blue captures the essence of this prized corn with a round nuttiness, roasted overtones and refined complexity. The mouthfeel is viscous with a soft finish. A true Texas original that we are delighted to share with the world.
Roasted heirloom blue corn is the pride of this Texas whiskey. The maize is unctuous, and it adds weight to the mouthfeel, which broadens and disperses across the mouth. Flavors and aromas of walnut—along with a slight nut tannin quality—tangle with peach and Anjou pear notes. At 96 proof, there’s still a soft touch to the palate and nose, perhaps a touch of black pepper to ramp up the sweeter tones of toffee oak and brown sugar
Rated 95/100 Tasting Panel


Balcones Texas Pot Still Bourbon...$25.99
TEXAS POT STILL BOURBON
Big flavors have always been the cornerstone of our prized Texas Whiskies, and Texas Pot Still Bourbon is no exception.
