Is it Still 2020? Yup...But: New Rosé & India Point Photo Contest Found Here.
PANDEMIC HOURS: TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY, NOON - 6PM WE ARE CLOSED SUNDAY & MONDAY
Even though it's a hassle and probably not great for business, we are still curbside pick-up and delivery-only. We'll likely remain so as long as Covid keeps re-emerging whenever re-openings are attempted.
In the absence of official government avenues for disease information such as the CDC & HHS, The Atlantic has launched The Covid Tracking Project.
Our E-Comm is the easiest way to order, but feel free to call or email if you need guidance or aren't a fan of online shopping. Pay at the door walk-ups are ok too.
PLEASE WEAR A MASK
Yeah, it's still 2020. The past five months seem like the longest of our lives but have simultaneously flown by at warp speed. Maybe it's all the doom scrolling...At least we're not the French being forced (due to trump tariffs and Covid) to turn our wine into hand sanitizer. Here's a link to an interview if you can't open that article; the intro mentions alcohol sales being up in the US, which may be true for some, but, real talk: not so much for independent, specialty wine shops focused on small-production, family-operated, European producers that bore the brunt of the tariffs. But the mega-stores are no doubt doing some bang-up business. Gotta stack that box wine in the bunker! Nothing against box wine, we have that too!
Oh shoot, we're creating our own doom scroll...it's a talent, actually.
So here's some not-doom: Friends of India Point Park is having a photo contest.
From their website: The exhibition and its theme, “Light in the Park”, are conceived as an opportunity for the community to reflect on the role of the park during these difficult times. Interpreted literally or figuratively, light is meant to suggest people, scenes, events, or objects at the park that brighten our everyday life. Photos submitted by anyone 10 and older taken in and of India Point Park will be hosted on the @indiapointparksfriends Instagram account with appropriate photo credit.
We accept all styles of photography, including photographic manipulation, and using any equipment from smartphones to professional cameras.
Lisa Limer, a prominent professional travel photographer, will be the juror of the exhibition. Awards will be given to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place.
Photos will be accepted August 1st through August 31st, 2020.
We're longtime fans of Ulli Stein, but this is the first time we've gotten his rosé. Old-vine, organically farmed rosé of Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon from the steep, blue-slate vineyards of Mosel, Germany. It's only 11% abv, but the fruit is deep, concentrated, and precise: strawberry, pomegranate, and despite crackly acidity, there's a dash of creamy ripeness (maybe it's cherry?) that creeps in around the edges. And it's Mosel, and slate, so of course all that fruit is wrapped around a rocky core.
This zippy, briny, tangy, lip-smacking Loire Valley white is just what this simmering summer needs. And it's so cheap! This wine keeps on trucking way past its price tag would imply. The 2014s were on-point right up until they ran out earlier this year. That acid...
Yet another cheapie that over-delivers. Organic, fruity, Rhone-spicy, perfect for casual backyard grilling...
Feel free to keep checking our e-comm and Instagram for new arrivals. We haven't been so great at updating the social media lately, except for beer, (it's the weight of the world!!!) but we'll try to be better.
