Staff Pick Notes

This wine doesn't need a staff pick. It pretty much sells itself. With it's sunshine adjacent color and name that sets off little fires of optimistic love. I am a long time admirer of Martha Stoumen and her artistically woven wines. These bottles hit a cord. They make you think. And the Honeymoon (an impeccably named wine) gives you nothing but it's best. This blend of Colombard and Roussanne tastes like licking raw honeycomb off a late afternoon crescent moon. Dry. Acid high. An electric blend that will linger in your mind for years to come.

California makes more wine than any other state in the United States. Not only does the state grow a variety of noble grape varieties like Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, there are also plantings of lesser-known varieties such as Nebbiolo, Roussanne and Mourvèdre to name just a few.

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