Staff Pick Notes

Since 1999 Bruno Lafon used his knowledge to create this great sparkling wine from South France at a very affordable price. Growing conditions are excellent in Languedoc: different terroirs, a lot of warm sun and fresh breezes from the Mediterranean Sea make this area a great place for vine growing. Very traditional wine making processes are done in the wine house to preserve flavors and richness. Fresh fruit aromas and flavors are noticeable and strong, followed by a pleasant brioche finish due to lees aging. This is not a complex wine, it's fruit forward and easy to drink and, because of that it 's one of my favorite everyday bubbly! Enjoy it by itself or with brunch...scrambled eggs and smoked fish!...amazing!

It is a flexible, eager-to-please grape, responding well to just about anything a winemaker...

Chenin Blanc

A versatile grape that is grown worldwide, but is most commonly associated with the Loire, California, Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand. It produces just about any type of wine you can think of: ageworthy dessert wines; delicious, honeyed dry whites; sparklers; and even bases for fortified wines and spirits. These days, one of the most exciting stories is in South Africa, where newly adopted winemaking technologies have helped a dedicated group of producers to bring the country's dry...
