Hi Everyone,

We have a very special selection to pour and admission is free, so come stock up for the holidays, it will be a fun time and we hope you can join us!
Wine greetings,
Ed McGaugh
Our line up for the tastings:
Azienda Agricola Isabella
Bricco Sant’ Eusebi Monferrato Casalese Cortese 2005:
This is a delicious and unusually full-bodied Cortese with a lovely floral nose with hints of lemon grass and fresh herbs. It is rich, full and buttery in the mouth, and the color is a lovely ripe golden yellow. It is delicious paired with risottos and white-meat dishes, along with Asian foods. 11.5% alc. 13.00 CHF
Cantina Sant’ Evasio
Piemonte Chardonnay Collezione 2005:
We were so happy to find a Chardonnay that tastes like Chardonnay and not oak! This wine is simply delicious, and reminds us of some of the California Chards that we used to enjoy in the States before the over-oaked craze hit. Enjoy this wine on its own or pair it with cheeses white meat dishes or Asian food. 12.5% alc. 14.50 CHF
Carlo and Valerio Quarello
Grignolino del Monferrato Casalese Cré Marcaleone 2004: This is the family’s flagship wine, and the Quarellos are extremely skilled at producing an outstanding Grignolino. It is a classic-styled wine, with vibrant aromas of pepper and berry fruits. In contrast to the Grignolino we offer from the Castello di Razzano, this wine can benefit from additional cellaring…Carlo and Valerio recently opened up a 10-year old bottle of theirs and said it was still delicious! This wine is perfect when paired with salamis and cheeses as an anti-pasti before dinner. 13% alc. Awarded 2 cups by Gambero Rosso. 20.00 CHF
Azienda Agricola Isabella
Barbera del Monferrato “Bricco Montema Tardivo” 2004:
This is an unusual new wine for us…it is 90% Barbera and 10% Freisa produced from slightly over-ripe grapes, hence the name Tardivo. The result is a delicious fruity wine with a ripe plum and cherry bouquet. The color is an intense ruby red, and in the mouth the wine is soft and round. Pair this wine with anti-pastis, salamis, roasts or strong cheeses. 12.5% alc. 14.75 CHF
Tenuta Castello di Razzano
Barbera d’Asti Superiore “Eugenea” 2001:
This Barbera is made from grapes aged 60% in new oak barriques and 40% in old oak barriques and the result is outstanding! It is delicious and sophisticated, with hints of dried berries and vanilla on the nose, in the mouth it is round and velvety. The balance of fruit and tannins makes this wine enjoyable on its own, but it drinks beautifully with red meats and game, along with aged cheeses. 14% alc. Awarded 2 cups by Gambero Rosso. 26.00 CHF
Paolo Marcarino
Moscato d’Asti 2005 (sweet & slightly sparkling):
A beautiful Moscato! Rich, concentrated and creamy with a green apple nose, this Moscato is exhilarating! Paolo is truly the Maestro of Moscato! Bravo Paolo! 5.5 % alc. 15.50 CHF
