Staff Pick Notes

This Terlan wine comes from some of the northern-most wine growing regions in Italy: Trentino-Alto-Adige. The Terlaner Classico Bianco is a blend of 60% Pinot Bianco, 30% Chardonnay, and 10% Sauvignon Blanc, the three most used varietals in the region. All bringing something unique to the wine, the result is a remarkable, complex, medium-bodied wine that balances freshness and beautiful aromatics with warmth and structure. A great example of how, when done with care and expertise, blends can highlight the best features of each varietal. Goes great with pappardelle smothered in parmigiana, butter, and lemon.

Alto Adige

Comprising the northern half of the oft-conjoined Trentino/Alto-Adige region of Northern Italy, Alto-Adige is in fact its own entity with its own distinct style of winemaking. Situated on the historic boundary between Italy and Austria, the two autonomous regions were returned to Italy after World War I (hence why they are often lumped together). Alto-Adige retains great pride in its Germanic...

Sauvignon Blanc

Few varietals have spawned as bizarre a list of descriptors as Sauvignon Blanc. Believe it or not, “cat pee” is in fact a complimentary tasting note, associated with some of the best bottlings. (It’s a somewhat odd way of pointing out herbaceousness in the wine.) Cat pee aside, Sauvignon Blanc (sometimes called "Fumé Blanc" in California) is a bit of a chameleon in terms of style, and quite...

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
