As of 2020, we are able to sell pre-selected mixed cases to private (not restaurant) customers. This doesn't mean that we are able to offer any wine in a mix and match case. Cases still need to be purchased from the warehouse in full cases and sent out within 48 hours, without any leftover bottles. By pre-selecting mixed cases, we are able to assemble a list of customers so the distribution matches the full cases purchased from the LCBO warehouse. Every Thursday morning we order our mixed cases, have them assembled and delivered the following Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. If demand is especially high, we can sometimes close orders off early and ship earlier. We will advise you if that happens. Otherwise, expect it late the following week.
Spring has sprung! At least I hope the weather is cooperating when you read this. The Spring Equinox marks the end of a long winter, the emergence of warmer weather and the appearance of green shoots as nature itself comes to life. As wine importers, our spirits are lifted when vignerons send us photos of vine bud break, signaling the start of a new growing season.
Move over Nebbiolo! In most premium Piemonte zones, celebrated reds are obtained by planting Nebbiolo in the best vineyards. But in Monferrato, it has been determined that the grape which responds best to the terroir is Barbera. And the area within Monferrato recognized for producing the most impressive red is Barbera d’Asti DOCG, with three crus receiving the highest recognition… one of these is NIZZA. Nizza is known to have the warmest sites in the hilly region of Monferrato, accounting for its ability to maximize ripeness and fruit concentration, elevating Barbera to new heights.
Sauvignon Blanc is one of the worlds most popular varieties of white wine. Depending on where it is grown its flavour descriptors can include the words grassy, asparagus, tomato leaf, gooseberry, elderflower, passion fruit, grapefruit and sweetly tropical.
With the onset of warmer weather the popular appeal of Sauvignon Blanc is perhaps not all that complicated, it tastes like summer in a glass and we can’t get enough of it!
