WINE BY THE GLASS

Sparkling

Mas Gomá 'la planta,' cava, penedés, spain, NV
Glass 13 Bottle 52

The Vendrell family has been making wine on and off, from there estate, since 1918. In 2009, they fully took over and converted organic farming with minimal interventions. This is not a mass produced version of "party" Cava. The wine spends 24 months on the lees providing a delicate balance between melon and citrus fruits. 

Imported by Selection Massale

Pivnica Čajkov (Piv-Nee-kah Chi-Kov) 'Vulcanica #5,' Pinot Gris (skin contact), Slovakia, NV (Rosé)
Glass 13 Bottle 52

This "untraditional" pétillant naturel sparkler is comprised of two different vintages of juice to "restart" the fermentation for the current bottling. Čajkov is one of the growing number of producers in the region shunning commercial and conventional farming in lieu of minimal intervention. The name "Vulcanica" tells you the grapes come from a dormant volcano that has become a ski resort AND the Trekkies finally get into the wine game! Live long and prosper with this beauty! 

Imported by Terraneo Merchants

Denny bini, lambrusco dell'emilia, emilia-romagna, Italy, NV (fizzy red)
Glass 12 Bottle 48

After many years of industrially produced medicrity, Emilia is now home to a small, but growing cell of artisinal producers. A zippy, perky expression blended from Marani (30%), Salamino (30%), Maestri (20%), the venerable Gasparosa (10%), and Ancellota (10%)

White

Xarmant, honDARRABI ZURI, Txacoli de Álava, basque country, spain, 2020
250mL Can 15
Summer time means "Txacoli time!" Pronounced (chaw-kuh-lee) this region of Northeast Spain specializes in crisp, naturally frizzante, wines typically enjoyed straight from a pouring vessel called a "porron." Crisp, green apple and racy acidity is perfect with a dozen, or so, oysters.

Imported by De Maison Selections

Bauer ‘Hollötrio,’ Grüner Veltliner, Wagram, Austria, 2020
Glass 12 Bottle 60 (1 liter)

No need to bore you with the same old story about how this winery practices organic farming with flora growing in partnership amongst the vines, all this is true at Bauer. What’s more exciting is how freaking incredible this Grüner smells and tastes! And, how vastly different these two sensory experiences are. Floral and citrus on the nose, yet lean and mineral on the palate! 80% of the pressed juice spends five hours on the skins, while 20% spends 30 days on the skins! Perfect for both briny and melony oysters on a hot summer night.

Imported by Savio Soares Selections

villargeau, sauvignon blanc, côteaux du giennois, loire valley, france, 2019
Glass 12 Bottle 48

The tiny area of Côteaux du Giennois (Kō-toe dew Zhee-in-wah) sits in the shadow of more famous regions Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé, yet, for my money, exhibits flintier, mineral, and bouncier flavor profiles than its famous neighbors due to the clay-limestone and silex dominant soils. Marc Thibault farms all 20 hectares to organic and sustainable practices, while also promoting polycultural farming. I've long enjoyed Villargeau's Sauvignon Blanc, one of least favorite grapes, because it never exhibits pyrazines that are way over the top causing overtly grassy/cat pee aromatics.

Imported by Robert Houde Wines

I CLIVI 'SAN PIETRO,' FRIULANO, FIULI COLLI ORIENTALI, ITALY, 2018

Glass 12 Bottle 48

I've long been an admirer of the wonderful white wines, from I Clivi, ever since I sold them to guests looking for White Burgundy at the all Italian wine list Spiaggia offered 12 years ago. It makes a lot of sense due to the vineyards sitting on the same calcareous clay soils as Burgundy's Cote d'Or. Fine minerality, white flowers, and hints of oregano make this an absolute stunner!

Imported by Cream Wine Co.

Scheuermann, Weissburgunder Trocken, Pfalz, Germany, 2020

Glass 12 Bottle 48

I was tasting this wine with the distributor rep the day Chef Matt put on the soba noodle in dashi broth. The overwhelming thought that this would be a miraculous pairing was evident. Scheuermann's vines sit on loess soils, not slate, and their winemaking style is more Loire Valley than Mosel. Pinot Blanc can be pretty boring, but this one shows tropical fruits, lime, and delicate mushroomy/umami notes. Enjoyable on its own, yet definitely should be paired with the soba noodles in dashi!

Orange


(Quick explanation: White wine grapes where the skins were not separated from the pressed juice and left on during the fermentation process, resulting in it’s color and texture.)
 
Maurer, Furmint, Fruska Gora Mountains, Serbia, 2020

Glass 12 Bottle 48

Oszkar Maurer planted this vineyard in the mountains bordering Serbia and Croatia, in 2010. The volcanic bedrock topped by marine sediment, highlights the elevated acidity his wines showcase. Furmint, known largely as the main white grape in Hungary, sees a short, 2-3 day skin maceration, then ages briefly in large, old, old, old, Hungarian oak barrels. An approachable entrée into the world of "orange" wine and works wonderfully with everything from oysters to salmon.  

Imported by Terraneo Merchants

Vartsiskhe, Tsolikouri (So-la-cory), Imereti, Georgia, 2019

Glass 13 Bottle 52

Utilizing the ancient winemaking process of naturally fermenting the grape juice with stems and skins included, for about six months, in clay, earthenware vessels called "qvevri." This process produces a tannin forward structure more closely associated with red wines. Tsolikouri maintains a delightful balance of floral, Asian fruits, and white tea characteristics.

sherry 

NV Bodegas Yuste, Palomino Fino, Manzanilla Sanlúcar de Barrameda, Andalusia, Spain

Glass 12

Yuste adopted a 19th century solera with his own to produce a complex and beguiling Manzanilla, between 8 and 10 years of age. This comes from keg and not bottle, so the Sherry “purest” can’t complain that it’s not “fresh.”

Rosé 

Labbe, Pinot Noir/Mondeuse, Savoie, France, 2020

Glass 12 Bottle 48

Savoie proximity to the French and Swiss Alps has made it a destination for winter and summer vacations which, in turn, means the wines produced in this region get consumed in this region. Fortunately, Labbe’s rosé made it back to the States this year. Perennially one of my favorite rosé's!

Julien Pineau 'les sucettes à L'aunis,' pineau d'aunis, touraine, loire valley, france, 2018 

Glass 12 Bottle 48

​The spirit of Clos Roche Blanche lives on through Julien Pineau. His Pineau d’Aunis is a carbonic macerated, natty wonderland! Pineau d'Aunis is light bodied like Gamay, and oozes the herbal goodness we all love in Cabernet Franc. If you're into renegade wines, this grape is no longer allowed in the Touraine appellation.   

Imported by Louis/Dressner Selections

bolet. 'cantareus,' Tempranillo, Penedès, spain, 2019

Glass 13 Bottle 52

Penedès is Cava country, so it's not as common to find Tempranillo (aka Ull de Llebre) like it is in Rioja and Ribera del Duero. However, this effort from Bolet is outstanding and totally representative of the profile you would find from the more famous regions. Aged in neutral oak, with hallmark cherry red color, mellow tannins, name a berry, you'll taste and smell it, plus the aroma of worn leather. These vines are tended only by the Bolet family to ensure that their organic practices are strictly adhered to.

Red tail ridge, Blaufränkisch, Seneca Lake, finger Lakes, New York, 2017

Glass 12 Bottle 48

We, as a staff, were fortunate enough to taste our good friend, Nancy Irelan's, first vintage of estate grown Blaufränkisch on our visit to the Finger Lakes, in 2019. Nancy, and her husband/partner Michael's, commitment to environmentally friendly farming whilst opening New York's first LEED certified wine making facility. An impressive array of herbal/berry profile wrapped in hints of smoke and shrubbery. Wildly impressive compared to the more well known Austrian versions. But, that's the genius that is Nancy Irelan.

Domaine de la Pépie, Côt, Muscadet, Loire Valley, France, 2018

Glass 12 Bottle 48

This area is truly only known for minerally Melon de Bourgogne, and in fact, red wines aren’t even allowed to be in the Muscadet AOC. Which is crazy. Côt is the Loire name for Malbec, but not the Argentinian style. Restrained red berry fruits with hints of herb and black tea. Stoney minerality will create an instant craving for the next sip. Great with saltier dishes and meats.

Imported by Louis/Dressner

Albamar 'Fusco,' mencia, ribeira sacra, spain, 2017

Glass 12 Bottle 48

Xurxo Alba sources his Mencia, a grape known for its expressive fragrances of plum, violets, musk, and scrub brush herbaceousness, from Ribeira Sacra's Lugo zone. One of my favorite wine regions in all the world due to its historically very steep, terraced slopes of decayed granite, the vineyards are works of art.  

Imported by Selections de la Viña

Julia, Cabernet Sauvignon, Western Galilee, Israel, 2016

Glass 13 Bottle 52

The "Samara" Vineyard was replanted within the last 20 years, yet the site has been producing wines for hundreds of years. Farmed dogmatically under natural conditions, fermented and aged in oak for 12 months. Dark and richly textured for the Califfornia Cab lover, with enough age and complexity to satisfy a Francophile.

BEER & CIDER ON DRAFT

Maplewood 'pulaski pils,' Pilsner, Chicago

[5.1% 12 oz] 6

Viennese style Pilsner from Logan Square? You bet! Maplewood's incorporates Pilsner and Vienna malt with dry-hopped Santiam hops creating a sneeky rich body, with enticing floral notes. Crisp and refreshing.

Around the Bend ‘Villianous,’ American IPA, Chicago

[6.3% 12 oz] 7
One yeast strain just wasn’t enough, “Villianous” uses FOUR! Two British and two West Coast strains combine to one Super strain. More nuanced than your standard IPA, which are still present, look for subtle apple and clover honey notes.

 

tandem cidery 'green man,' apple cider, suttons bay, Michigan

[4.5% 12oz] 7

Handcrafting their cider with traditional rack and cloth press, standard fermentation, and a little Leelanau County love, Nikki Rothwell and Dan Young have been producing some truly delicious ciders, since 2006. Rhode Island Greening apples provide a precise and electric edge sans sweetness.

 

Beer in a bottle & SAKE IN a CAN

Hofbraü 'oktoberfestbier,' Munich, Germany 

[6.3%, 11.2oz] 5

It's that time of year again! Oktoberfest actually happens in September and for me, Hofbraü is the quintessential Marzen Octoberfest beer. Prost!

 

bushido ‘way of the warrior,’ Junmai Ginjo Sake, Kyoto, Japan

[18%, 180mL] 12

This clean, refreshing sake is a great representation of traditional Junmai Ginjo style; watermelon rind, pear, tart berries.
