  • Pinot Grigio

    This Pinot Grigio is alive with aromas and flavors of tree-ripe peaches (yellow and white), golden and red apples, pears, white flowers, spice, a touch of honey and what is becoming a tell-tale note in our whites; a salty, chalky minerality. This lovely dry white wine is clean, alluring and focused with loads of personality and a silken mouthfeel. The wine possesses a golden straw color, medium body, moderate alcohol, medium acidity and a long juicy, satisfying finish. Pairs well with with local fish and shellfish (especially fried), sheep's milk cheeses, zucchini frittatas, light chicken dishes, pastas and charcuterie.
  • Ramato

    ​ The Ramato is a special skin fermented white wine, or what many are now calling "orange" wines. Ramato refers to the old Friulian style of fermenting Pinot Grigio on its skins, thus creating a coppery colored wine. There are aromas and flavors of honey, brown spices, dried apricots, pear skin, tropical citrus, baked apples, coriander and peaches. The wine has balanced acidity, only 12% alcohol, medium-plus body and great persistence of flavor on the finish. This dry, exotic, textured and aromatic wine falls somewhere between a white and a red but does not fit neatly into the pink category. Pair our Ramato with hard cheeses, charcuterie, fish, chicken and pork preparations that include spices, nuts, grains or squash. Exotic, lightly spiced and earthy foods will work marvelously with this wine.
  • Tocai Friulano

    ​ This dry white wine has aromas of white flowers, Meyer lemons, fresh green almonds, white peaches, apple skin, brown spices, minerals, white grapefruit and something reminiscent of an ocean breeze. The wine is medium-bodied and has moderate alcohol and balanced acidity. There is a lovely, lengthy, refreshingly tangy finish. As always, the fruit was hand- harvested and whole cluster-pressed. Match this long, pure, tasty wine with prosciutto, salami, porchetta, risi e bisi, fresh pea risotto or pasta, fava bean salads, fried fluke or fricos.
  • Merlot Rosato

    Plump and jovial! An ode to versatility. This wine has a light coppery, pale salmon pink color and is alluring, playful and aromatic. There are notes of red raspberries, strawberries, red apple skin, red cherries, spice and minerals. It has a persistent finish, great character and a wonderful zing. Beautiful texture, dry with moderate 12% alcohol. Pair this wine with almost anything, tomatoes and mozzarella to hanger steak with chimichurri sauce or charcuterie.
