Wine

Sparkling

Gran Gesta ‘Brut Reserve’ / Macabeo, Xarello, Parellada / Cava, Spain
$9 gls / $34 btl
Elegant Cava with extraordinary flavors of apple, pear and a touch of citrus.

Bruno Zanasi ‘Lambrusco’ / Lambrusco / Italy
$10 gls / $38 btl
Effervescent red wine from Emilia Romania, Italy.

La Garagista ‘Ci Confonde’ / Marquette (Sparkling Red) / Vermont
$13 gls / $51 btl
We’re feeling a bit bedazzled by pétillant naturel, an old-style first fermentation in bottle. The Ci Confonde Red is bottled shortly after harvest and left to finish its frothy alchemy under cap, creating a fine bead of pearly effervescence. Hand-harvested and unfiltered, this alpine sparkling hails from their Vergennes vineyard in the Champlain Valley, Les Carouges, where red-winged black birds make their home, and made from Marquette, a red wine grape descendant from Pinot Noir.

White

Folk Machine ‘White Light’ / Riesling, Tocia, Sauv. Blanc, Muscat / Cali
$9 gls / On Draft!
The nose shows a light orange blossom, stone fruits, lime, and a light minerality. The palate has some texture with good acid, and flavors towards orange peel, and lime zest.

Orange

La Garagista ‘Loup d’ Or’ / Brianna / Vermont
$16 gls / $63 btl
Heady floral and white peach aromas with a textured mouthfeel and bracing acidity. Wine made from grapes grown organically using natural composting techniques and special preparations of herbal sprays while following the astronomical calendar. Biodynamic and no sulfites added.
