HOT OFF THE PRESS: NY Times Features Our Pinot Noir Pick Of The Year!September 19, 2017
In August, we featured the 2015 Big Table Farm Pinot Noir as our Pinot Pick Of The Year. And, hot off the press, The New York Times today released an article featuring Big Table Farm as a pioneer in Oregon's Willamette Valley!
This shouldn't be news to our readers as Big Table has received our "Pinot Pick Of The Year" for three out of the past four years and twice in just the past three vintages. Our August feature of the...
This is the newly released and best ever Gaja Ca' Marcanda Magari that we have ever tasted. This sensational Super Tuscan is from the prized 2015 vintage, a vintage which is producing fantastic wines in Tuscany and across Europe (including Bordeaux and Burgundy).

But this little gem offers something a little different!
Unlike many of the 2012 Brunellos which need to be aged, the 2012 Mocali Brunello can be enjoyed as your Tuesday night sipper with immediate gratification. It drinks beautifully now even though you could stash it away for another five years....
