Pannonhalmi Apatsagi Pinceszet

Apatsagi’s Tricollis is brisk, crisp and refreshing – a perfect summer wine, and a perfect aperitif. A blend of 40% Welschriesling, 35% Riesling, 15% Gewürztraminer, and 10% Pinot Blanc. An aromatic dry, fresh wine representing the traditional character of the Pannonhalma wine region. Great Hungarian pour that is Sustainable and delightful.

Galerna Garnache - Tramonte & Sons

Fun summery red that shows aromatic and vibrant notes of ripe strawberries, cherries, dried orange peel, herbs and light spice. Throw it in the fridge for 15 minutes while you change from the pool, light the grill, grab a glass and enjoy!

Le Mistral Tier

Easton Estate Zinfandel

Bill Easton helped to lead the Cali Syrah charge as one of the 4 “Rhone Rangers” who all sought to make elegant and balanced wines in Cali, using the Rhone region of France as a signpost and inspiration. His sense of place, restraint, and balance shows gracefully in his Zin offerings as well.

This wine has huge brambly blackberry fruit, big cedar, spice box aromas and flavors. It has a smooth creamy finish from aging in François Frères and Taransaud barrels (1/3 new).

Zinfandels from Easton have no residual sugar and capture a nice balancing acidity. This wine will age nicely for at least twenty years, but it is ready to pop and enjoy today.

Andrew Latta Snipes Mountain GSM Blend

Grenache makes up 60% of this wine, with the rest Syrah (26%) and Mourvèdre (14%). The aromas pop, with bright, fruit-forward notes of raspberry and strawberry candy, herbs and spices. The palate is richly flavorful, textured with a lingering finish. It brings a compelling sense of purity—a whole lot of wine for the money. Dope gem from a Kentucky Native.

Olga Raffault, Chinon Les Barnabés

Les Barnabés is a single vineyard parcel held by Olga Raffault. The Cabernet Franc vines are grown on sandy-gravelly soils with less limestone than Les Picasses. This wine spent less time in foudre before release; it makes a very pretty and elegant Chinon, approachable in youth, but eminently ageable. A way that is the star of any lineup.

Slingshot Winery, Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma County

Beautiful Napa fruit that is cared for in an unpretentious way. Refreshing & crisp, this wine has aromas of orange blossom, lemon, pear & green apple with an undercurrent of acidity and a textured finish. Balanced & fun, this is a great way to wind down summer and head into fall.

Barouillet Splash Sémillon Pet Nat

Barouillet is an 8th Generation (!) all natural and organic winemaker out of Monbazillac, France. This 100% semillon yields the most beautiful mouthfeel and is reminiscent of traditional blanc de blancs. It's "Splash" comes from the natural secondary fermentation in the bottle, capturing the CO2 and creating the perfect bubbly fizz. Put on your party pants and pop this bb.

Halcyon Cabernet Franc

This label hails from Greek mythology. When gods ruled the earth, two lovers were granted eternal love on a tumultuous beach. Goddess Halcyon begged for a reprieve from the storm to bear children (or at this point, kingfisher eggs, you can read the whole story for that to make sense). This magical and peaceful time surrounding the winter solstice came to be known as the Halcyon Days.


Praised as "The best of Loire in California" by Wine Access, this 100% single vineyard Cabernet Franc delivers the quintessential crushed peppercorns, fresh, tart fruit and beautiful juniper notes that you need. Great mouthfeel yet still very drinkable on it's own, this is a great way to kick your feet up and enjoy the late summer vibes.
