2019 Vinho Branco, Liquen

Menina d'Uva

Aline Domingues is the youngest of 4 children and is only 28 years old. Her parents are Immigrants from Uva, a minuscule and impoverished ancient village only thirty kilometers from the border of Spain, they came to France in the 60’s in search of better economic prosperity and to escape the dictatorship. She pays homage to her history through her wine label, Menina d’Uva, which means “Girl from Uva” Where she moved back to and currently makes her wine! Before Aline started making wine in 2018, she became a scientist. She spent seven years between Parisian Universities where she earned three Masters degrees in Molecular Biology, Fermentation Science, and Quality Health Safety Environment. Today, she is equally committed to science as she is to her organic farming ideology, which makes for a very balanced winemaker!

This blend is 70% Malvasia and a 30% blend of traditional grapes like Bastardo Branco, Formosa and Poilta. She sources her grapes From Uva in Portugal, which is a straight shot from the Atlantic directly east from Porto.

2019 Sangiovese Bianco

LaSelva

LaSelva's farms and vineyards have been farming organically for over 35 years. They put their local environment first and have learned how to be one with their land. They work hard to preserve the land and maintain biodiversity. We chose to feature this wine not only because we appreciate their values, but also because this wine is very unique!

This Sangiovese Bianco  hails from Tuscany and is a one-of-a-kind white wine, as it is one of the only expressions of this classic local red varietal in white form.  From younger vines, the Sangiovese grapes are immediately pressed off the skins in order to showcase only the fresh flesh of the fruit, without any imposing skin tannin or even color.

2015 Pastoral Rouge

Two Shepherds

Wine blogger turned garagiste William Allen started Two Shepherds with his wife Karen. The two specialize (primarily) in Rhone varieties  from cool climate or old vine vineyards and unique plantings, made with minimal intervention.  Use of native yeast, no additions other than minimal S02, neutral barrel fermentation and aging, whole cluster, and unfined, unfiltered production are core philosophies of Two Shepherds.

Pastoral Rouge is Two Shepherds flagship red Rhône blend, uniquely crafted each year. The grapes of this blend come from a cool microclimate within the Sonoma Coast, producing a wine of balance and finesse. The wine is bright and juicy, 43% Grenache, 37% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre, 3% carignan and 2% cinsault.
