1. 2016 Bernhard Ott Gruner Veltliner “Am Berg” (Niederosterreich, Austria) – Bernhard Ott is one of Austria’s masters of Gruner Veltliner, and this is a great introduction to his style. Using organically-grown grapes from his own vineyards along with some fruit he purchases from neighbors, the wine is fermented entirely in stainless steel. The resulting wine is fresh, pretty, crisp and laced with notes of pear, apple, mixed citrus, herbs, and white pepper.
Special Tasting Price: $15.99/bottle
2. 2015 Castro Ventosa Mencia Joven “El Castro de Valtuille” (Bierzo, Spain) – Castro Ventosa was founded by the Perez family in 1752, and today, the estate is run Raul Perez, one of the key players in the world of Mencia and Bierzo. All of the vines are farmed organically, and the resulting wine is fresh, juicy, and invigorating. Vibrant notes of lively cherry, raspberry, and cranberry make this a great alternative to Pinot Noir. The price isn’t too shabby either!
Special Tasting Price: $12.79/bottle
3. 2016 Domaine les Grands Bois Cotes du Rhone Villages “Les Trois Soeurs” (Rhone Valley, France) – This certified organic, Southern Rhone producer makes some of my favorite Cotes du Rhones. From a vintage that Jeb Dunnuck called “heavenly,” this blend of 65% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and 5% Carignan is deeply colored, ripe, robust and while one can think of many flavors to describe them, the word delicious pretty much says it all.
Special Tasting Price: $13.59/bottle
