Wine Features


Angel Rodriguez / Martinsancho – 2005

Rueda, Spain

With more land under vine than any other country in the world, Spain is the great sleeping wine giant. Rueda is a recognized winegrowing region (Denominación de Origen (DO)) of Spain that is located in the Community of Castile and Leon. During the 18th century the land planted to vines was greater in extent than it is now and was exclusively under the Verdejo grape variety. The wines produced enjoyed great commercial success in part due to the clarification process used which involved the use of local clay.

This white wine is made from 100% Verdejo grapes. Light gold in color. Pungent, grassy nose, with vibrant scents of lemon, green tea, ginger and jasmine. Spicy and incisive, with brisk citrus flavors accented by herbs and minerals. Finishes broad, supple and spicy, with gentle acids.

$7.50 / glass

$30 / bottle

Moscato D’Asti

Saracco – 2007

Piedmont, Italy

The undisputed champion of our most recent employee wine tasting. A truly gorgeous and unique wine for those who are feeling adventurous.

Paolo Saracco is known as "The Maestro of Moscato" ... and for good reason. His Moscato is perfumed with fresh peach, pear and white flowers. A gentle sparkle brightens the fruit and a tingle of sweetness hints of candied fruits. Enjoy as an aperitif or a refreshing way to finish a meal.

$20.00 / 375ml bottle
