Staff Pick Notes

Whispering Angel is famous for a reason. From Monaco to the Hamptons, this is the rosé countless socialites have served with lunch. It’s timeless. Dry, fruit-forward, and playfully acidic, this is a wine you could get in trouble for drinking too much of. The first time I had it, I got notes of strawberry, lemon, and white peach. I’ve probably had it 30 times since (oops). While it may not be the most authentic or indie of Provençal rosé’s, it sure is delicious. Try it for yourself. It’ll transport you right to the beach.

Typically, New World Shiraz yields bigger, fruitier wines than the the peppery Syrahs...

Provence

Provence has some of the best vine-growing territory in the world, with a perfect Mediterranean climate tempered by the cooling effects of the sea. The region produces a broad range of wines, the majority of which pair effortlessly with the light, herb-infused cuisine of Provence. Bandol, arguably the most significant appellation in Provence, produces spicy, earthy, rich red wines. These tend to be big and well-structured, relying on the Mourvèdre grape for their power. Vines in Bandol are...
