Our featured wine of the week
2014 Jean-Paul Brun Côte de Brouilly
You felt the burn all summer, now taste the Brun! 2014 marks the 37th vintage for Jean-Paul Brun and he has learned a few things over the years. From his estate,Terres Dorées, he creates terrior driven wines throughout Beaujolais.
Jean-Paul embraces a more Burgundian approach to wine making by destemming his Gamay grapes (forget those bubblegum tones you sometimes get on wines from this region.) His Côte de Brouilly, one of the 10 "Crus" of Beaujolais and comes from 2 plots of 50 year old vines. A lighter wine with wild strawberry and violet tones, a perfect red wine for the changing seasons.

Our wines are often more subtle and earthy than the fruit-bombs that you find on most supermarket shelves but we believe that once you unlock their charms you will be hooked for life. And since these Old World wines were made on smaller vineyards that have existed for generations they also offer quite a great bang for the buck. There are some amazing New World wines out there but they tend to cost a great deal more than we want to charge our customers. We want to be the wine portal for people of all ages and incomes who are new to wine and want to explore without breaking the bank.
