Our featured wine of the week: May 22nd

 

 

 

 

 

 

Looking for a wine to take with you to the beach? Then try a wine made from the seldom seen Monica grape. The vineyards of Cardedu (car-DAY-do) are in the area of Ogliastra, the most mountainous and least populous province on the island; a land of turquoise shimmer and ragged-dry cliffs. The Loi family doesn’t think of itself as a natural wine producer; they are not in that hipster giro / circle. Yet all wines are fermented with native yeasts, and there’s dry farming without use of herbicides or pesticides. It’s the kind of light red wine that takes well to a slight chilling down; it’s dry, low alcohol, and earthy, with just a touch of fruit. Drink it as an aperitivo or with lighter grilled fare.

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.
