Staff Pick Notes

Portuguese winemakers are absolutely killing it! If you're looking for a bright, light, expressive summer wine, look no further than this little gem. Made by innovative young winemaker Tiago Sampaio, this blend defies convention. Renegado is a blend of both red and white indigenous grapes, including Gouveio, Viosinho, and Rabigato. Tiago is from Douro and became interested in farming as a child, but he actually learned to make wine in Oregon. His love of his native land and passion for experimentation shine through in this creative cuvee. Best enjoyed with a light chill, you'll find fresh red fruit, springs of woody herbs, and a crisp finish. An easy choice for your next evening on the roof.
