Nino Costa Langhe Nebbiolo


REGION: Piedmont, Italy


NOTES: On the palate minty sage and rose pedals with earthy and tart red fruit. Long tannic finish with hint of herbal tones. An easy drinking and crowd pleasing Nebbiolo. Pairs well with beef, lamb, veal, mature and hard cheese and mushrooms.

MUSIC PAIRING: Maxwell, Jill Scott

Domaine Bastide Rose Cotes Du Rhone


REGION: Cotes du Rhone, France

VARIETAL/BLEND: Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault

NOTES: “Pale pink color. Bright cherry and raspberry fruit with hints of garrigue and minerality on this dry rosé. A fantastic value! Vincent and Stephanie Boyer’s domaine in Visan contains great historical reference in winemaking and European feudalism. The building in which Vincent’s family resides is surrounded by old mourvèdre vines and fig and cherry trees. It is a fortified farmhouse that was built by Templar knights in the middle ages. The Bastide property became Benedictine, then a Dominican monastery and continued to grow grapes for wine. They live in this historical place with Vincent’s mother and their two mischievous little girls. Vincent took over his father’s winemaking legacy and Vincent and Stephanie, also a trained oenologist, carry forward the domaine with energy, innovation and focus. The vineyard is stronger than ever. Vincent hopes to make the farm fully organic in the near future.” -Importer

MUSIC PAIRING: Paramore, Fall Out Boy

Cantina Colonnella Le Corone Montepulciano D’abruzzo


REGION: Abruzzo, Italy

VARIETAL/BLEND: Montepulciano

NOTES: Ruby red with purple hues. On the nose, it is fresh, with aromas of currant, strawberry and raspberry. Medium bodies with soft red fruit, slight earthiness and bright acidity. Pairs well with grilled lamb chops, spaghetti Bolognese and BBQ.

MUSIC PAIRING: Elvis Costello, Ed Sheeran, Van Morrison

Warm regards, The Winey Neighbor
