Calling all you Cabernet-philes! We have put together a serious lineup of high end contenders--we now need you to be the judge. Starting with Ampere, a  sought out label started by frenchman Hien Nguyen, located at the center of the newly established Pine Mountain-Cloverdale Peak AVA.  Next we have Bartalotti, a beautifully crafted wine produced by the historic Italian wine-making Bartalottii family, based in Napa Valley. The next two wines in the lineup truly need no introduction, they are CA royalty. 2011Ampere

Ours is a short and varied wine history in the U.S.A. From phylloxera to Prohibition, we have had our share of vineyard obstacles. That being said, we are a resilient and industrious people--rising swiftly to the top of the wine ranks. We therefore would like to spotlight some of the stalwart varietals that our country has come to call its own. Enjoy a crisp Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley with its calling card of tropical notes, to the inky and earthy Petite Syrah of Yorkville Highlands. We have something for everyone to enjoy, diversity and wine freedom for all!

Even though Independence Day is our day to celebrate the principles of freedom and democracy that our country's founders sought to provide, most of us associate the day with fireworks and barbecue. While we don't advocate having your own fireworks display, we heartily recommend hosting you own barbecue. And whether you keep it simple with things like hamburgers and hot dogs or give it more of a gourmet twist, we have selected wines that will match whatever delicious item comes off the grill. Celebrate the red, white and blue with red, white and rosé.

Posted By: Wine on Piedmont
As we near Independence Day, we will celebrate America's birthday by celebrating America's signature grape variety, Zinfandel. The four wine we will feature are either all Zin or field blends where Zin is the  primary ingredient. In the best American tradition, Zinfandel originally came from another country. It then put down roots here and thrived, retaining the best qualities of its European forebears while achieving greater things in its adopted country. And now, this bold, straightforward and unpretentious variety has become the very symbol of the winemaker's art in America. Please note, due to the prices of these wines,  the tasting fee for will be $10.

What is 'terroir' and how can it be exemplified in wine? There is nothing more suitable an example of terroir, than the earthy, stony, and rocky representations from Fance. Hailed as the inventors of the term, 'Les Francais' are some of the best at capturing the flavors of the soil in their bottles. This weekend, we will be featuring an elegant selection of earthiness from the Loire, Beaujolais and Bordeaux. Each of these regions are known for their mineral-driven soils and for the bright, exceptionally food-worth wines that are made from them.  From the gravelly banks of Entre-Deux-Mers to the sea-bed stones of Morgon, this line-up will truly make your tastebuds water. Despite the old idiom to 'never put rocks in your mouth', we believe that on this weekend, you are exempt.   2015 Chateau Sainte-Marie

In 1992, Diamond Wine Importers was created out of the belief that Greece, with its natural terroir of mountain vineyards, maritime influenced climate, volcanic and alluvial soils, and over 200 ancient indigenous varieties, can once again become a source of some of the greatest wines in the world. Over the last 20 years of tasting and traveling throughout Greece, they have compiled a portfolio of the best artisan, vineyard-driven producers who are working with the best native varietals from the best appellations. It is our pleasure at Wine on Piedmont to offer a broad example of Greek wine-making at its finest with the following line-up.

Weekend Wine Tasting 'Climate Change, the Italian Way'
3/25/2017 9:00:00 PM UTC - 3/27/2017 12:00:00 AM UTC
Posted By: Wine on Piedmont
Climate change is real...at least as it applies to Italian wine growing regions. This week, our line-up more than exemplifies what we mean. Nothing is more vast than the multitude of micro-climates among the Italian viticultural areas. From the frigid, Alpine peaks to the sun-kissed sands of the South, Italy's wine regions are some of the best to study when it comes to how temps and terroir affect what goes into bottle. Come in this weekend for a glimpse of just this. We will examine, in our most scientific and swirly way, what exactly the warm sun does to otherwise high-acid, white varietals, and what a drop in temp can mean for otherwise bold and brawny reds. We promise to make believers out of you yet.   2015 Corte di Giso

Friday Nite Tasting 'Tessier Winery' featuring Kristie Tacey
3/25/2017 12:00:00 AM UTC - 3/25/2017 2:00:00 AM UTC
Posted By: Wine on Piedmont
Created in 2009, Tessier is a micro winery handcrafting small lots of Pinot Noir, Grenache, Cabernet Franc and Viognier. For winemaker Kristie Tacey, sustainability is a priority, not only in choosing vineyards that incorporate such farming practices, but in the footprint the winery leaves in the community and in interactions with others. Her strong relationship with growers in Russian River Valley, the Santa Cruz Mountains, and El Dorado results in high quality fruit, and her minimal winemaking approach allows the grapes and vineyards to speak for themselves. Annual production, though expanded since the inaugural vintage, is still only 600 cases, which allows for unparalleled attention to each wine.

Californian wines need not be synonymous with mass produced, jug juice. We are surrounded by diversity in climate, geography and style in our beloved golden state. Our wines should be a direct representation of this diversity. Thus, the celebration of this weekend's line-up, a selection of classic varietals made with a 'not-so-classic', Californian approach. Come experience the uber-small production wines that showcase some of California's beautifully unique and often underrepresented regions. These wines are allocated and will not be here for long.  2014 Rock Wren

Posted By: Wine on Piedmont
The Drusian family has been producing wine for three generations and owns 80 hectares of vineyards in the heart of Valdobbiadene. Mr. Francesco Drusian’s thought is to consider the quality of his wine as the pure expression of the grapes. Hand harvested and very gently vinified, great care is taken to preserve the structure and delicateness of his fruit. His company's ethos is based not only on their love and respect for the work, the environment and the land, but also on the consensus of like-mined wine lovers that what is in the bottle is truly worth all of the effort it took to get there.

3/4/2017 1:00:00 AM UTC - 3/4/2017 3:00:00 AM UTC
Posted By: Wine on Piedmont
After working many years in the retail and distribution sides of the business in New York, London, and San Francisco, Oliver McCrum began importing and distributing wines on his own in 1994. The portfolio had been Italian focused for many years but in 2007, he decided to focus exclusively on the importation of Italian wines. Since then the portfolio has expanded from a predominantly Northern Italian selection to include an equally powerful and fast-growing Southern Italian selection. Oliver and his team look for wines with clarity, focus, and precision made from indigenous Italian grape varieties using traditional winemaking techniques and no obvious use of oak.

Friday Nite Tasting
with Ryan Cochrane

Friday, January 27th
5:00-7:00 pm

Ryan's hand-crafted wines are made purely with an intention to "make [you] smile." In 2009 Ryan left his advertising job in San Fransisco to fulfill his dream of making wine. He took an internship at RN Estate in Paso Robles and helped in every aspect of the harvest that year. Now, a few years later, he makes his own chardonnay and pinot noir from two of the best vineyards in Santa Barbara County.

Growing up in Carmel Valley, Bret developed an early appreciation for the natural beauty of the California landscape. He received a Masters degree in Viticulture & Enology from UC Davis and got his hands dirty interning at Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars in Napa and Domaine des Comtes Lafon in Meursault Burgundy. Upon returning from France, he set out to combine that tradition-steeped approach with his training at Davis in order to create Old World-style yet undeniably Californian wines.

Posted By: Wine on Piedmont
As importers, Vintage 59 looks for wines with depth of fruit, length and elegance, rather than for obtrusive oak, over-extraction, or excessive alcohol. The company focuses on the rich relationships that spring from the community of growers, instead of just the commercial imperative. They believe in working with people who share sensibilities, and that makes them as important as the wine they produce.

Posted By: Wine on Piedmont
Terry Theise has been a wine importer and writer for thirty years. His first love is German Riesling which was once a staple at the finest tables in America, but had been largely forgotten when Terry began working with a group of small German growers in 1985. Twenty years ago he discovered vastly underappreciated and underrepresented Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, St. Laurent, Blaufränkisch (and even more obscure varieties) from top growers in Austria.

Ridge bases their grape-growing in each vineyard on long experience with each site, while simultaneously making use of the most recent advances in vineyard management.  When you have great vineyards that produce high quality grapes of distinctive individual character, this is not only an environmentally and socially responsible approach, it’s also the best way to consistently make fine wine.

Posted By: Wine on Piedmont
At Small Vineyards, we search every corner of the Mediterranean for the best small production wines being made today. Why? Because we believe-after tasting thousands of wines-that the very best consistently come from small estates. If you think about it, it’s a lot easier to make a great meal for 5 people than for 500, and winemaking is no different. That is why we tell our clients up front-with our Small Vineyards gold seal on the bottle-that you’re holding a small batch wine from a family-owned estate, that you will be proud to serve. In working with small, family-owned estates we are not just ensuring that the wine is fantastic, but we are working to protect a way of life that has been preserved through generations.

School is in session, not only for the kiddos! Educate yourself on some 'lesser' recognized, yet equally enticing natural French wines (don't worry, we included a Chablis to keep things steady). A  Pinot Noir from Alsace? A white Bordeaux blend? Correct! What an awesome way to study.   2015 Chateau Sainte-Marie

Friday Nite Tasting Featuring Bedrock Wine Co.

Posted By: Wine on Piedmont
Bedrock Wine Co. was founded in 2007 by Morgan Twain-Peterson in a 550 square-foot, former chicken coop with 8 foot ceilings and no fermentation space. After six years of Bedrock being a one-man-show, Morgan was able to talk his best friend, Chris Cottrell, into moving to California from New York to join him. They now happily have a little more space to move around in but share the same objectives that guided the winery at the start. 2015 Abrente
