Alder Ridge

Alder Ridge Winery is a celebration of one of the founding, most highly reputed vineyards in the famed Horse Heaven Hills appellation of Washington State. Best known for its award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon, the vineyard’s first vines were planted in 1997 and includes plantings of Grenache, Mourvedre, Roussane and Cinsault, among dozens more, making it the site of Washington’s most sought-after reds. Prized fruit from this prolific, 800-acre site is purchased by many of the state’s most notable boutique wineries.


It has been said that within crisis, there lies opportunity. In 2008, a group of friends all working in wine decided to embrace the idea by forming an alliance they call the "Cult of 8." They have embraced the true spirit of the négociant: securing multi-year contracts with several quality vineyards and wineries at prices deemed unimaginable a few years ago. They've also been allowed to produce their own wines at some of the most prestigious and state-of-the-art wineries in California. Their unique agreements ensure consistency and quality in every bottle and every intage of Alias wines at extreme value.


Bodegas Aruspide was founded in 1999 by a group of people dedicated to making wines in an organic method. They purchased a bodega built in 1905 and restored the building respecting the architectural style of the period and region. The result is a technologically modern, yet elegant winery. Bodegas Aruspide owns 110 hectares of vineyard and controls an additional 60 hectares. All 170 hectares have organic certification. During harvest, all of the grapes are hand selected in the field. Each wine that Bodegas Aruspide produces is made in an organic method. The Ardales Brand incurs the additional expense of attaining organic certification, while the Agora brand is marketed without certification; however, the same winemaking methods are used for both. Bodegas Aruspide wines carry the D.O. Valdepenas designation for the Agora brand and Vino de la Tierra de Castilla for the Ardales brand.


Astoria Vini is a family owned company with the 3rd generation family member Giorgio Polegato overseeing all winemaking for the winery. The Astoria family estate consists of 50 hectares of planted vineyards in the Veneto Region of Italy. The vision of the winery is to consistently produce the highest level of wines that can be enjoyed not only in Italy but around the world. In particular the “Lounge” Prosecco which has quickly become the leading on premise Prosecco in all of Italy is prominently displayed on wine lists in the finest restaurants in Rome, Venice and Florence.


Augey (pronounced o-jay) wines are from the most famous appellation in France, and the world. Bordeaux, originally bord d’eau (side of the water), was a marsh until Dutch canals established the tributary of what is now the Gironde River. Augey Red Bordeaux, White Bordeaux and Rose Bordeaux are estate bottled at their chateau in Entre-Deux-Mers, an area nestled between the Garonne and Dordogne rivers known for producing fantastic Bordeaux wine values.

Aviary Vineyards

Our goal was to create the perfect glass of wine, or rather the perfect wine by the glass. We envisioned a complex wine that was enjoyable on its own and with food, reasonably priced but rich in style, and fully representative of Napa Valley quality. We describe it as that glass of wine you order at the restaurant bar after work when it’s time to shed the day’s baggage. This is no time for a mediocre wine. From the first sip the wine should impress, relax your shoulders, and make you smile. Now you can start to breathe.

Babich Winery

Imported by Select Fine Wine. Stylish, finely blended wines of a consistently outstanding quality are synonymous with Babich Wines. One of New Zealand's largest family-owned wine companies, Babich Wines was established in 1916 and has evolved as a major producer, now exporting to numerous markets around the world.

Baileyana Winery

OLD WORLD INSPIRED. SURPASSING NEW WORLD STANDARDS. SUSTAINABLY GROWN. Nine words. One idea. This sums up the philosophy behind all of our wines. It’s an idea that traces back to our founder, Catharine Niven, and her original vision. Today, that vision continues under the watchful eyes of the second and third generations, along with Burgundian born and educated winemaker, Christian Roguenant. He vints wines that are true to the vineyard and varietal in the old world tradition. Yet, he creates completely modern wines that go beyond the new world standard. He accomplishes this with winegrapes that have been farmed in a sustainable manner for over three decades. Baileyana combines the best of three worlds, old, new and future, and produces estate Grand Firepeak Cuvées of concentrated flavors and balanced acidity

Bellini Cocktail of Prosecco

Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). Bellini is a wine cocktail from two parts sparkling wine and one part juice and pulp of white peaches. Produced by the Canella family since 1988, it is bottled and ready to drink. Its ingredients are Canella sparkling wine and Maria Bianca peaches – the famous white-fleshed variety –, which the Canellas grow in their own orchards. Fruit is hand-picked when perfectly ripe and juicy, then pressed and blended with the sparkling wine and a few drops of raspberry juice that endow Bellini with its characteristic rosy hue. The cocktail is therefore bottled without adding any preservatives, sugar or artificial flavoring.

Bodegas del Rosario

Imported by Frontier Wine Imports. Bodegas del Rosario, formerly known as Cooperitiva Nuestra Senorio del Rosario, is presently located in the town of Bullas, 50 miles from the Mediterranean coast. Several years ago, several senior members of the cooperative purchased the facility and formed their own bodega.

Clearly, Bodegas Félix Sanz is highly prepared to carry out its service commitments and, at the same time, care for and guarantee the optimum quality of its wines.

Bodegas J A Calvo Casajus

Mr. Jose Alberto Calvo Casajus is the owner of bodega that bears his name. Jose Alberto is the winemaker and in fact the only employee of his bodega. Jose Alberto?s day begins around 4:30 in the morning when he opens his bakery; he is also the baker in his small village, Quintana del Pidio, population about 200 people. At around 9:00 in the morning, Jose Alberto closes his bakery and walks down the street (there are only a couple of streets in the village) to open his small boutique bodega, where he begins his real work. Born into a family of grape growers (between Jose Alberto and his wife Leonor?s ancesters, they own nearly all of the vineyards in and around Quinta del Pidio) and educated in oenology, Jose Alberto through his wines has risen to a sort of local celebrity status. Bodegas Casajus sells more of its wine in Aranda del Duero, the capital city of Ribera del Duero, than any other Ribera del Duero bodega. Quintana del Pidio is located in the foothills in the northern portion of Duero Valley, which shape the Ribera del Duero appellation. The village and all of its vineyards are sloped on the countryside with southern exposure, thereby protected from the cold winter winds by the hills along the northern perimeter of the Duero Basin. Jose Alberto?s grandfather and Leonor?s ancesters planted their vineyards in 1920. This date was recently verified by the appellation after using documents signed by the village?s major in that year. This makes Jose Alberto?s vineyards among the oldest vineyards in the entire Ribera del Duero region. Mariano Garcia, the famed wine maker from Bodegas Vega Sicilia, once mentioned that Quintana del Pidio was his first choice for sourcing grapes for the Aalto project. Jose Alberto and his ancesters were active members in the local wine cooperative, where they sold their grapes until the early 1990?s. Jose Alberto left the cooperative in 1993 to begin is bodega, where he is dedicated to producing the best wines from his premium grapes (he sells the less than premium grapes to the cooperative). Today he uses small stainless steel tanks equipped with a micro-oxygenation devise, new French Allier barrels for malolactic fermentation, and a combination of French Allier and American oak for aging with experiments using Hungarian oak barrels to produce an average of 50,000 bottles per year. Jose Alberto produces three wines, but will be reducing this to two, which he designates Vendimia Seleccionada and Antiguos Vinedos, thereby freeing himself of the Crianza and Reserva models. This allows him to shape each wine as he deems necessary.

Bodegas JA Calvo Casajus

Imported by Frontier Wine Imports. Welcome. From the vineyard to the bottle, J.A. Calvo Casajús winery makes excellent wines within the appellation of Ribera del Duero.

The vineyards are located in the higher elevations of Navarra, which lend additional structure and character to the grapes.


[BON-GEO-VONY] Location:Castiglione Falletto, Province of Cuneo, Piedmont, Italy. The Bongiovanni farmstead (“cascina” in Italian; pronounced ka-shee´-nah) dates back to the early 1950s, when it was purchased by Giovanni Bongiovanni, a grass-roots man with a profound instinct for soil potential. Giovanni planted a Nebbiolo vineyard where there had been nothing but untamed woodland: he struck gold, yet never lived to bottle his own wine. The estate was left to his daughter Olga and it grew to cover premier hillside vineyards of Langhe. Grapes were all indigenous varieties with one noble “foreigner”, Cabernet Sauvignon. The latter – and a good number of other innovations – were due to Olga’s young nephew and winemaker, Davide Mozzone. Davide Mozzone was born at Castiglione Falletto and grew up on his maternal grandfather’s farm. Growing up Davide lived and breathed the family tradition, taking his first steps among the vineyards and inevitably choosing to become a winemaker. Davide's first steps as winemaker was to cut down on quantity to enhance the soil’s potential and maximize quality resulting in modern red wines that combine character, concentration and consumer-friendly versatility. Davide’s modern style never contradicts the Langhe heritage, as we can see from the labels themselves. “My wine labels speak of our roots, our history: I have chosen to maintain my grandfather’s surname on Bongiovanni bottles rather than replace it with my own, Mozzone, in homage to his vision and dedication, and as a sign of continuity.” Bongiovanni now covers seven hectares (17.3 acres) under vine, and the range comprises one intriguing, fragrant native white: Arneis. Davide is flanked by his wife Marina and by top agronomist Gian Piero Romana, as attentive to every detail in the vineyard as the young owner himself. Total yearly production averages 30-35,000 bottles, and the Bongiovanni philosophy aims at minimizing outside intervention and maximizing character.


Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). Azienda Bartoluzzi aims to guarantee the maximum quality of its wines with respect for tradition, but with the use of innovative production technologies. White wines are leaders in our production range, as is the tradition within this territory. The red wines of the Isonzo area are generous, full-bodied wines. And a little gem for those with a sweet tooth: Passito wine.


Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). Purchased in 1962 by Egidio Corradi, great wine lover and connoisseur of the territory, Farms Boscarelli owe their birth and development to the efforts and dedication of Paola Corradi, daughter of Giles and her husband Ippolito De Ferrari. Luke and Nicole, the third generation maintain the original spirit, dedicating every day with passion to produce wines with each bottle all the fragrances and flavors that already Grandpa Giles loved and wanted.

Bread and Butter Wines

Bread and butter are flavors and aromas that develop through the winemaking process either through the use of oak fermentation and aging or malolactic fermentation (MLF). Both affect flavor, aroma, and texture in the finished wine. As winemakers, these are our “bread & butter” techniques in the cellar - that which we depend on to craft great fruit into great wine. Our goal is to enhance and compliment, through winemaking, what happens in the vineyard. Like the preparation of a great meal, a chef must start with great ingredients, but the mastery in the kitchen will separate a good dish from a great one.


Bree Riesling offers aromas of crisp apple, passion fruit and lime with sweet, fruity flavors of pear, peaches and nectarine. Pfalz is bordered by the Rheinhessen to the north and France to the south and west. The name Pfalz is derived from the Latin word palatium, or place. The region produces wines of substance and finesse with less acidity than their Mosel counterparts. The soil of the region is comprised of gravel, granite, sandstone, limestone, and chalk.

Broke Ass

Broke Ass Red Wine has juicy plum and blackberry fruit with a kick on the finish. BEST BUY (84 points) “Crimson in color but also translucent, with a candied, slightly green nose.

Canti Winery

Canti focuses on technology and innovation, including a modern yet elegant facility. The winery features a stunning barrel room, named “Magnificat”, that holds 6,000 barrels. Canti produces the finest Italian wine from all regions of the country, including estate wines from Piedmont.


Cantina di Casteggio is a cave cooperative which has been established in 1907 by a hundred of grape-growers in order to have a unique wine making centre that could represent them on the market as a powerful group. In the first post-war, Cantina di Casteggio begins its expansion buying SVIC (Italian Wine Society Casteggio), well-known for sparkling wines. In those years, the hectolitres of wine produced were about 30.000. Thanks to the subsequent installation of new machineries for refrigeration and for conservation of the wine, the average annual wine production, in the last 5 years, reached 10.000 tons: a half of red grapes Barbera, Croatina, Pinot Nero (that is the noble foundation for Sparkling Wine), Cabernet Sauvignon, and a half of white grapes Riesling It., Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Malvasia, Sauvignon Blanc and Moscato.

Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). The history of Capannelle wine producing dates back to 1974, when Raffaele Rossetti, a 40 year old business man in Rome, decided to purchase an old XVI century farmhouse in the heart of Chianti. Since then, the farmhouse has been radically renovated. Structural interventions and significant restoration have removed almost every trace of its peasant-like past, making the interiors an expression of high quality and exclusivity. Here Capannelle regularly hosts well-known chefs, restaurateurs and lovers of its wines.

Carlo Hauner

Carlo Hauner, Sr. began traveling the world as a painter in the late 1940s. He lived in Brazil for a few years, but eventually returned to Italy and spent his holiday in the Aeolian Islands. It was there that Hauner fell in love with the beautiful scenery. He was also captivated by the ancient practice employed to dry Malvasia grapes where the grapes are allowed to dry for a couple of weeks on outdoor racks during the day, and are taken in at sunset. Hauner eventually purchased 49 acres of land to replant the vineyard terraces overhanging the sea, suspended between the dark volcanic soil and dazzling Tyrrhenian waters. He buried himself in research on Malvasia delle Lipari, reading ancient and modern texts, listening to local experts and eventually became an expert himself. He brought a fresh perspective, creativity and intuition to the art of Malvasia. In February 1996, Carlo Hauner, Sr. passed away and his son, Carlo Hauner, Jr., who is flanked by general manager Gianfranco Sabbatino took over the winery, and have worked together, carrying the winery from previous success to future success.

Carneros Hills

Each vintage-dated Pinot Noir is a blend of modern Dijon clones and classic older selections, including Swan and Pommard. Winemaker, Eric Johannsen, looks for “textural merits” in wines from the blocks he chooses to bear the Carneros Hills label; these typically come from rocky ridge top blocks that capture the morning sun. The grapes are cold-soaked for up to a week, fermented in open top tanks, gently pressed, then aged in medium-toast French oak, averaging 30% new barrels.

Casal Mendes Rose

Soft pink color. Intense fruity aroma with notes of pineapple and banana. Recommended by itself as aperitif or with seafood, hors – d´ oeuvre, salads, spicy food (Chinese, Thai, Indian)

Casali Rosa di Rosa Rosso

A history that goes back more than a century, from 1900 until today following one guiding principal of inspiration: “a fine wine is conceived on the vine and grows in the cellar”. Right at the very beginning of the last century, founder Giuseppe Casali decided that the wine he was producing, destined for family consumption, could be transformed into a commercial product, and so he inaugurated a professional wine-making business aimed at quality both “on the vine”and “ in the cellar” , while at the same time introducing new technology to enhance natural process.

Cascina Bongiovanni

Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). The full name on the label is Cascina Bongiovanni. In Italian, the word "cascina" ('farmstead'; pronounced ka-shee'-nah) has a nice, oldfashioned flavor to it: most of today's producers prefer grander-sounding, trendier terms to describe themselves.

Castellani Amadeo

Imported by Laird and Company. This fine Chianti is produced by the Castellani brothers in Tuscany, Italy. Roberto and Pier Giorgio Castellani have been producing wine for many years. You might liken them to the Gallo brothers. One brother is responsible for the production of the wines and the other handles the administrative chores. These two polite Tuscan gentlemen combine their talents to form an unbeatable team. The operation is quite large, one of the biggest in the Chianti region. They continue to offer the traditional packages from the region, like the Tuscan straw flask, long abandoned by most other producers.

Catedral Reserva

Catedral Reserva comes from the single estate, “Quinta da Beirã,” of the Enoport Group. Beirã Estate has a total area of 6.64 hectares and is located in the heart of Portugal’s demarcated region of Dão, in the parish of Lageosa, municipality of Viseu. The vineyards are planted in predominately granite soil, on terraces facing west for optimum sun exposure. This Quinta is planted to red varietals exclusively.

Cellar Besllum

Besllum means ‘a ray of bright light coming through a small opening in a dark background’. Joan Carles Estivill is the third generation from his family to be tending to their family vineyards. The vineyards are located in Cornudella del Montsant, the highest village in the appellation. He is passionate about his vineyards and he only founded his bodega after the region received denomination of origin status. He leaves the wine making skills to his young winemaker, Ramon Valls. His boutique bodega only produces about 5,000 cases per year. Joan Carles developed a circular metal retainer that he puts around each of his old vines to provide a trellis effect for the vine. He finds that the retainer helps the grapes remain very small for better concentration. Joan Carles also lets the grass grow in the vineyards to absorb the spring rains in order to further stress the vines.

Champ de Reves

We make only one wine—Pinot Noir. Characterized by aromas and flavors of blue/black fruit, floral and spice elements, earth and a distinct minerality, Champ de Rêves’ calling card is its mouthfeel, which exhibits both a silky textural trait and a firm, gravelly structure that's a testament to its high altitude origins.

Champagne Gruet and Fils

The Agricultural Cooperative Society Union Vinicole Hills of Bethon (UVCBs) was created in 1967 by Gilbert GRUET. The latter was originally-harvesting handling and marketing its branded champagne G. Gruet & Fils. He wanted to create a group of producers to have a potential to help deal with the request. Today the cooperative has 100 members and cooperators now sells its bottles partly under the brand G. Gruet & Fils.

Chapel Hill

We are striving to craft wines that display purity in regards to varietal and vineyard site characters, wines that have a deep soul and a sense of place. We are also focussing on achieving mouth feel and texture as well as alluring complexity. Balance is imperative because if the components are all interwoven into the structure of the wine, then ultimately the wine will be more respectful towards food and will age more gracefully. To achieve our goal we are learning to truly believe in our vineyards and instinct, so as a result we are now minimising winemaking intervention and additions. The mantra with our red winemaking is to achieve power and grace, harnessing the opulence that McLaren Vale is renowned for and incorporating style and poise.

Chateau La Salle

Chateau La Salle was first introduced to the American public by The Christian Brothers of California in the early 1960's. Over the last four decades, the easy drinking, sweet wine has been an institution for the American wine consumer with a sweet-tooth.

Cherry Kijafa

Imported by Margaux and Associates. KIJAFA made with cherry wine and natural flavors is the unique imported wine specialty which can be enjoyed on the rocks or in a tall glass with your favorite soft drink and ice.


Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). The story of this superb Tuscan Cabernet began on a singular note, when its first vintage was wiped out by wild boars. The episode inspired Neil & Maria Empson to call their most exclusive proprietary brand "Cignale" – "Wild Boar" in ancient Tuscan.

Clos Pons

Passion and respect for the land; the gentle, painstaking care taken in each of the phases of the winemaking process, and the expert hands of oenologist Martí Magriñá have given Clos Pons a winemaking competence that has consolidated the winery as a reference point for quality both within the D.O. Costers del Segre and on an international level. This is reinforced by the recognition it has been afforded by consumers and by some of the most prestigious institutions worldwide.

Cocci Grifoni

Comte Audoin De Dampierre

Imported by Frank-Lin. The reputation of a champagne depends on a subtle balance of flavors and aromas. Rigorous in the selection of wine from which it buys, leaving anyone else to marry the Grand Crus, personally taking care of his aging champagne Audoin de Dampierre calls his name. A master in the preparation of champagne, he uses very modern winemaking facilities without sacrificing the methods and traditions.

Conquista de Argentina

Early Spanish Conquistas settled Argentina in the 16th century. They considered this new land’s hot, arid climate ideally suited to wine cultivation. It wasn’t until the late 18th century when the Governor of Cuyo in Mendoza, an area 625 miles west of Buenos Aires, requested Malbec, a classic French grape that was struggling in the cooler climate of Bordeaux, France, brought to Argentina for wine cultivation. Conquista is inspired by Argentina’s Spanish heritage and the Spaniards that, by virtue of their South American conquests, sparked what is today a spectacular heritage of Argentinean wine cultivation.

Conterno Fantino

Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). The Conterno Fantino wine farm is located on top of a hill overlooking the old village of Monforte d'Alba enjoying a view of the Alps. Founded in 1982, it is run with the utmost respect for the land, tradition and time in the firm belief that these values go hand-in-hand in guaranteeing wines of the highest quality.


Imported by Empson(U.S.A.).In 1983, Andrea Costanti (at the time, fresh out of Siena University's geology department) took over from his uncle, Count Emilio – the man who first put Costanti on the wine map. A difficult task: yet this inexperienced youth not only coped with his huge new responsibilities, but actually upgraded and enhanced the family's reputation for making great Brunello. He achieved this by relying on his own fine instinct for wine and in-depth knowledge of the terrain's geological components. In time, these natural skills were perfected, so that he eventually styled the range together with Vittorio Fiore.


Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). The Garda Classico and Lugana appellations, between Lake Garda and Brescia, form a gently rolling landscape of great charm and tranquillity, rich in historical remains and lovely ancient castles.

Criss Crossing Estate Vineyard

Criss Cross is a joint venture between LangeTwins Winery and Vino del Sol. The winemakers are David Akiyoshi and Karen Birmingham. The Criss Cross wines are made from our most premium vineyards in a fruit-forward style that over-delivers for the price


Bodegas La Candalaria is owned by a small group of growers and winemakers who were members of the former cooperative. They formed an association with 4 other small bodegas so they can share equipment and technology to reduce their individual overhead costs. The bodega is located near the small village of Casas de Haro where some of the oldest Tempranillo vineyards are located and traditionally yield more complex and high quality red wines.


Cune is the winery where the company began in 1879. And today it still sits on its original site, in the wine district, Barrio de la Estación, in Haro, Rioja Alta. At Cune, the winemaking process continues with the same dedication and care as it started in the company’s early days. And care is taken from start to finish, from the grape on the vine to the wine in its bottle.

Des Amis Rose

Des Amis translates as 'friends.' We chose this name because friends are at the core of our philosophy. Our friendship is the reason we wanted to make a wine together, and we've relied on friends to make this wine a reality. Grapes and juice are sourced from fellow winemakers that we have beers with after work and barbeque with on weekends. In addition to the wine itself, they generously offer use of their cellars and labs, share expertise on the winemaking, and let us use their bottling lines. Without these friends, making Des Amis would not be half as good, nor half as fun. We would like to thank everyone involved in our passionate Rosé project, and hope that anyone enjoying a bottle does so with friends.


Imported by American Estates Wines.

Domaine St Vincent Sparkling

A Méthode Champenoise top-selling domestic sparkling wine produced by the Gruet family in New Mexico. As the second label of Gruet, Domaine Saint Vincent Brut is one of the best values in domestic sparkling wines on the market.

Dr Loosen

The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for over 200 years. When Ernst Loosen assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with ungrafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany’s best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines. To achieve this, Ernst dramatically restricts crop size, prohibits chemical fertilization, insists on very strict fruit selection, and employs gentle cellar practices that allow the wine to develop its full potential with a minimum of handling.

DRNK Wines

DRNK stands for the family initials Dale, Ryan, Nancy and Katie. Located in Sebastopol, the heart of the Russian River Valley, Ryan produces distinctive wines based on his deep knowledge of the vineyards and his aptitude for technology. It’s a better wine for the next generation. Winemaking begins in the vineyard, and we begin evaluating our fruit from the time of inception to harvest from all perspectives, from under root to over the canopy. An intimate relationship with the fruit continues through crush as each lot is carefully hand harvested and sorted in the vineyard and again at the winery before crushing. All fermentations are carried out in small batches and punched down by hand. The wines are then transferred to barrel in our underground cellar, an ideal wine making environment. The utmost care and consideration is given to each barrel individually before final blends are made.

Eos Estate Winery

Originally named for the Goddess of the Dawn in ancient Greek mythology, EOS Estate Winery uses state-of-the-art, eco-friendly technology to craft their wine offerings. Since their introduction, EOS wines have consistently been recognized for outstanding quality.

With respected winemaker Larry McKenna applying his distinctive skill to what he does best - making premium wine - the result is some of New Zealand's most layered, flavoursome and complex wines.


Viña Estampa began in 2001 as the result of the vision and entrepreneurial spirit of Miguel González-Ortiz, the winery’s owner and current president. From the beginning the winery focused on innovation and modern techniques to create world-class wines that would fully express the characteristics of the different varieties and their origin, the Colchagua Valley. Estampa is the only winery in Chile that specializes in the production of blends, a technique that consists of carefully combining two or more fine varieties, each contributing its best characteristics, to create wines with tremendous balance and unique personality. The creative spirit, the technical quality, and a great love of the land enable the creation of exceptional wines that are a true contribution to the Chilean wine industry and make Viña Estampa a world-class winery.


Imported by Empson (U.S.A.). The company was founded in 1998 after Aldo Olivier Gramola realised the potential for producing superb wines in this seem-arid valley. The Falernia project was born after he met Giorgio Flessati, an enologist working in the Trentino region of northern Italy. The driving force has been a passion for the wine and the challenge of transforming a tract of desert into a green vineyard with enormous potential for producing premium wines, availing ourselves of the latest technology, the support of agronomist from Chile universities and of world renowned enologists.

Fanal Madeira

Madeira is a fortified wine that is produced on the island that bears the same name. The island of Madeira is the largest (35 miles long by 14 miles wide) of three small, subtropical, volcanic islands located it the Atlantic about 500 miles southwest of Portugal. The 280 square mile island is divided in half by a range of steep mountains. Madeira is lush with green vegetation from the high humidity and mild seasons. When the Portuguese explorers discovered the islands in 1419, they named them 'Madeira' meaning 'wood' or 'timber' due to the beautiful dense forests on the islands. Adding vinous alcohol to the grape must during the fermentation process will stop the conversion of the grape?s natural sugar to alcohol. The point during the fermentation when the vinous alcohol is added determines which of the four basic styles of Madeira will be produced. Sweet Madeira is produced by fortifying the wine earlier in its fermentation period, thus retaining more of the grape?s natural sugar. Dryer Madeira is produced by fortifying later in the fermentation period, thereby allowing more of the sugar to be converted to alcohol. The four basic styles of Madeira are the full rich, medium rich, medium dry, and dry. Full rich and medium dry are the most popular styles of Madeira. In the US, the medium dry style is referred to as 'Rainwater'. The British shippers found that the wine improved during the ocean transit due to the tropical heating of the wine, which was shipped in casks and stowed on the deck of the ship. This impacted the production process, resulting in the type of heating or 'estufagem' process for aging wines. Today, Madeira's are submitted to a heating or estufagem process using special stainless steel tanks called estufas. These estufas have water pipes to circulate hot water to heat the Madeira to 113 to 122 degrees for three months. After the estufagem process, the Madeira is matured in French Allier oak casks for a minimum of two years.


Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). The prestigious Farnese wines are made from the best grapes of the Farneto Valley estate and other vineyards from Abruzzo and are aged in the splendid cellars of restored and restructured Caldora Castle thus defending the tradition that is vital for Ortona. The wines are aged to be leaders on the international markets.

Fattoria di Faltognano Chianti

The harvested grapes are placed in small baskets an d transported to the cellars. After destemming and crushing, the must is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel for 30 days, punching down the cap twice daily. The following July, the wine is racked, bottled and released for sale about one year following the harvest. Producer Fattoria di Faltognano sits on the south facing slopes of the Montalbano hills, between Florence and Pisa. Owner Roberto Comparini's family has owned this estate since around 1,000 A.D. The uniqueness of the property lies in the continuity of its ownership and traditions. The vineyards lie downhill from the winery, closer to the town of Vinci, where the sandstone and calcareous soil of the slopes blends with the sandy clay of the lower Arno plain. One of the most unique facts about Faltognano is their vines. For generations all grafting occurred within their property, creating singular clones perfectly adapted to their soil and climate. Due to the varying altitudes and ripening periods, the grapes from each vineyard are hand-harvested and individually fermented.

[FER-GETT-INA] Location: Adro, Province of Brescia, Lombardy, Italy. If you travel to Lombardy, Italy you will find there is one very fine winery, favorably located close to Lake Iseo, which has managed to combine excellence, avant-garde research and a warm-hearted, family feel not easily come by in the area: Roberto Gatti’s Ferghettina. Roberto, his wife Andreina, and their enologist children, Laura and Matteo, form a young, enthusiastic, friendly and forward-thinking team whose growth is as sure, bright and lively as that of the winery’s adorable mascot, Laura’s little son, Pietro. Roberto has always been a man of the land. In 1990, he began to give an elderly family friend a helping hand on the weekends: the woman owned a tiny winery and after her husband’s death, had a hard time dealing with the details of production. At the time, she sold in bulk but one year into the collaboration, she was so impressed she offered to sell him the winery and adjacent three hectares (7.4 acres) under vine, convinced production would shine in Roberto’s hands. The year was 1991: Gatti left his former employer and struck out on his own – Ferghettina was born, named after the place name where the winery was located. For the first time, production was bottled under the Ferghettina label and Gatti’s first Franciacorta Brut was released in 1992. Ferghettina grew, step by step. After a lifetime in the vineyards, Roberto knew the best fruit ripens gradually. People in Franciacorta hold him in great esteem, so that little by little, he took over new plots on long leases (20-25 years), which he replanted to the strictest standards, eventually running a total of 180 hectares (445 acres) under vine, split into nine Franciacorta districts. Only a small portion of these is proprietary, for the family chose to focus their investments in top-quality equipment and vineyard management. One of these investments included a state-of-the-art, 64,600-square-foot new winery at Adro (again, slightly northwest of Erbusco), designed by Laura’s architect husband. Though built from 2002 to 2005, it is perfectly integrated into the landscape: a traditional farmhouse made of timeless-looking bricks and stones, it embraces a gently sloping hill within sight of Lake Iseo (a.k.a. Lake Sebino). The Gatti family is supported by a staff of fifteen and yearly production is around 350,000 bottles. The wines are styled by Roberto himself flanked by Laura and Matteo, both university graduates in enology. In fact, starting with the 2007 vintage, the Ferghettina Rosé and vintage Brut (now known as Milledì), come in a special bottle invented by Matteo Gatti, with a square rather than round base, rising pyramid-like with flat interior sides so that during Rosé’s and Milledì’s three years on the lees, the yeasts of second fermentation have two and a half times greater contact with the wine by comparison with traditional, round-based bottles. This leads to even greater finesse, flavors and aromas. In other words, originality, beauty and functionality.


Magnificent Values from Monterey The geologic formations of the Monterey County region were formed many millions of years ago. The ancient marine layers and alluvial soils are a result of the primordial sea and shallow coral beds over oceanic volcanic crust. Deliciously expressing their origin, the Formation wines exhibit deep aromas, balance and structure. 100% estate vineyards.

Foxen Vineyards and Winery

Bill Wathen and Dick Doré have been making wine together since 1985, when they founded Foxen Winery and Vineyard at the historic Rancho Tinaquaic in northern Santa Barbara County. Since that time, their dedication has remained the same—the creation of very small-production, vineyard-designated wines using a "minimalist" approach to winemaking. The winery is named in memory of William Benjamin Foxen, an English sea captain and Dick's great-great grandfather, who came to Santa Barbara in the early 1800's. In 1837, this Santa Barbara County pioneer purchased the Rancho Tinaquaic, a Mexican Land Grant that originally totaled nearly 9000 acres and comprised most of what is now known as Foxen Canyon. Captain Foxen adopted the distinctive "anchor" as his ranch cattle brand, which has become a trademark of the winery. It is very fitting that FOXEN has made its home on the 2000-acre Rancho Tinaquaic, which remains in family hands. With the completion of FOXEN’s new solar-powered winery and tasting room in August 2009, the historic and beloved “tasting shack was renamed “foxen 7200”, where Bill and Dick now feature their Bordeaux and Cal-Ital-style wines, under a newly designed label. FOXEN pinots, chardonnays and Rhône-style wines will be showcased in the new tasting room at 7600 Foxen Canyon Road.

Franz Haus

[FRANZ-HAAZ] Location: Egna, Province of Bolzano, Alto Adige, Italy. At the base of the soaring Alps are the municipalities of Montagna and Egna. The soils in this area are predominantly porphyric sand, clay and limestone and have a reputation of creating wines that are highly concentrated and expressive. It was in this area that the Franz-Haas family chose to plant roots and began producing estate wines in the 1880. Since then the family estate has been handed down from generation to generation--for seven generations total. One thing that has remained unchanged is the constant commitment of the winery’s owners and employees to produce high quality wines. It is this commitment that transformed the property into the innovative winery it is today. Today, 7th generation owner and winemaker Franz Haas oversees the winery. Shortly after taking over the winery, he implemented radical changes in the vineyards: which included planting new high density vineyards, with 2,425 to 5,000 vines per acre, and selecting low-yielding vines. Franz Haas also has planted some of the highest vineyards in Alto Adige. According to Franz Haas “Our goal is to produce quality wines that are the distinct expression of our terroir, with good aging potential and marked personality.” Franz is assisted by Maria Luisa, who is the co-owner and creative director of the winery. Her artistic and passionate personality helps to balance Franz’s scientific approach to wine making.

Gen 5

Our Family History In the 1870's our great-great-grandparents emigrated from Germany to Lodi, California. They started a small farm growing watermelons. In 1916 our great-grandfather expanded the firm by purchasing a grape-ranch. Our grandfather Harold continued carrying on our family's agricultural roots and gaining experience on our land. Our parents, the identical twins Randall and Brad Lange and their wives Charlene and Susan, greatly expanded our vineyards. In 2007, with all five members of the fifth generation onboard, we built our own winery. Gen5 is produced from our estate fruit in Lodi, at our winery (LangeTwins). Our winemaker is David Akiyoshi, a 25 year veteran winemaker who previously worked for Robert Mondavi as Director of Winemaker at Woodbridge..

Gran Moraine

Oregon Wine Country, an extraordinary place sculpted by the floods of the last ice age, is a series of valleys much like Burgundy. The Yamhill Carlton AVA, located in the northern Willamette Valley, consists of ancient marine sedimentary-based soils, Mediterranean weather patterns and neatly combed benchlands. Gran Moraine embodies the confluence of these elements, creating a perfect setting to craft classic Burgundian varieties - Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.


For Gruet, it all began in Champagne, where Gilbert Gruet started making bubbly back in 1952. In the early 1980s the next generation planted its flag in this country with high-altitude vineyards in southern New Mexico. At an elevation of 4,300 feet on mountain plateaus, the days are hot but the nights are cool, conditions conducive to growing good chardonnay and pinot noir, the main grapes of Champagne and most American sparkling wines.

J Christopher

J. Christopher Wines is a small winery, located in Oregon’s Northern Willamette Valley, that specializes in Pinot Noir made in the traditional style of Burgundy. It is owned by Jay Somers, who has been making wine in Oregon for over 15 years. Jay’s wines are hand-crafted in small lots and are sourced from some of the best vineyards in Oregon. The philosophy at J. Christopher is to produce wines in an Old World style that puts an emphasis on focus, length and balance. As Jay puts it, “We do not make sweet red fruit bombs. We make wines that have a fine balance of fruit, acidity and texture; wines that give you more than just a big mid-palate blast — wines that are complete.” A Collaboration with Dr. Loosen When Ernst Loosen met Jay Somers some years ago, they quickly realized that they share a similar taste and passion for Pinot Noir. Ernst is a lifelong Pinot Noir fanatic, and has been producing it at his J.L. Wolf estate since 1996, the same year that Jay launched his winery in Oregon. The two cemented their friendship in 2004 when Jay traveled to Germany to help the short-handed harvest crew at Dr. Loosen. It wasn’t long before they began talking about collaborating to produce Pinot Noirs that combine Old World and New World ideas. The results are Two Worlds and Appassionata Pinot Noir.

Jack Tone Vineyards

The Jack Tone Vineyards [red wine] is a beautiful blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah. In future years, the blend may include Petit Verdot and Zinfandel, as well. We've decided to maintain the wine with a Non Vintage status to give us freedom to back blend from vintage to vintage in order to maintain continuity between production years. Our initial White Wine Bottle Blend is a blend of Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Muscat. In future blends, we may see a small amount of Viognier, as well. We have maintained a "Non Vintage" status with the wine in order to give us the freedom to "back blend" between vintages to maintain continuity and consistency.

Jankara Vermentino di Gallura

[YAWN-CAR-RA] Location: Sant'Antonio di Gallura, Province of Olbia-Tempio, Sardinia, Italy. Renato was born in Gallura, the north-eastern most portion of the island. The area’s crushed granite soils are ideal for draining and endow local wines with enriched complexity and minerality. Renato and Angela Spanu purchased 21 acres of virgin hillside soil in 2006, planting 11 acres entirely of Vermentino, in February 2008. The property is located between the towns of Luras and Sant' Antonio di Gallura, near lake Liscia. In Renato's words: "Our vineyard is in the highlands of Gallura, in the heart of a prestigious sub-zone called Vena di San Leonardo, which runs from Lake Liscia to the territory around the miniscule, medieval country church of San Leonardo. Within this "vein", our Vermentino vines lie on a particular cru called "Giannaghe" - "Jannaca" in the local dialect, facing another historic cru called "Karana"-that, in fact, is how the name "Jankara" came to be: JAN-naca-KARAna. The micro climate is superb, influenced as it is by the vast lake and the island's second highest mountain, Limbara. Jankara is right in the middle, northeasterly exposed at 985 feet above sea level. It enjoys hot days and cool nights throughout the most important months of the growing season. Pair that with the winds that constantly clean the air, keep temperatures down and maintain the vineyard clear of pests and disease, and you have the perfect conditions to grow quality grapes!" The Spanus are now flanked by winemaker Gianni Menotti, Gambero Rosso Enologist of the Year 2006. Renato is thrilled to report that “Gianni has followed the entire vinification process, and you can already tell from the style of the new wine: less filtration, and amazing attention to detail etc. He is truly fantastic and 100% on top of things, even more so than I am!” Gianni Menotti was crowned Best Wine Maker at the 2012 Wine Oscars hosted by Bibenda. Bibenda compliment Gianni in an article saying that, for thirty years he has been dedicated to respecting the identity and personality of the grapes from Italy. His skills come as part of a career that is unparalleled in excellence. Gianni could not be happier about receiving this most prestigious award, was very humble in saying, “This is the crown to all of the years of hard work and sacrifices that have made up my professional carrier.”

At Brothers in Arms we put our heart into full-bodied wine that is true to the estate and true to the region. Our wines showcase our quality fruit and reflect the spirit of our family tradition. Since being established in 1998 we have achieved national & international recognition for our Brothers in Arms bottled beauties. Without doubt our greatest strength is being such an integrated business. We are in control of the management of our soils, pruning regimes, canopies and irrigation in the vineyard right through to deciding when best to bring the fruit into the winery. We don't feel the pressure to work to anyone else's requirements at vintage and can therefore coax and nurture our ferments how we choose, allowing our Viticulture and winery teams to work closely together building skill sharing and teamwork. This integration hasn't happened by accident or just good fortune. Guy has always had a very clear vision about where he wants the businesses to go and is an exceptionally good strategic planner. He has been through too many "bad" years with primary production to rely on one income stream alone. He is also an unbelievably hard worker and with Liz supporting him has been able to achieve some really marvellous outcomes. The first vintage saw only 5 tonnes of Shiraz produced, a volume which has now grown to over 700 tonne per year. In all 212 hectares are planted to vines with the balance of the 1000 Ha (2,500 acres) property given over to Merino sheep and cropping. Guy and his wife Liz have a clear vision for Brothers in Arms—to showcase what they believe the vineyards are capable of. With the construction of the winery in time for the 2002 vintage, the focus of the winemaking discipline is simple: balance, structure and texture. “by concentrating on these three key elements we find that all the other attributes revolving around fruit, oak, tannins, length of flavour, etc. fall into place” explains Guy. With two children Myles and Emily (the 6th Generation—hence the No 6 range of wines) Guy & Liz head up a dedicated team that are proud to produce wines that are true to the estate and true to the Langhorne Creek region. Although our original focus was on Shiraz the wines in our portfolio have evolved over the past decade and we now produce all estate grown Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and blends thereof which showcase Langhorne Creek's ability to offer elegant wines with balance, structure and texture. Very soon we will be releasing our first estate grown Malbec which is truly exciting.


KONO in Maori means 'food basket'. It is a traditional woven basket used to carry, protect and present produce by the Maori. It is made from New Zealand's native flax, the harakeke plant. Harakeke is an integral part of the indigenous Maori world. Since ancient time it has been recognised for its strength, durability, adaptability and growth. These qualities are a metaphor for the way we operate. KONO NZ is owned by an entrepreneurial Maori Company in the top of New Zealand's South Island - Wakatu Incorporation. Wakatu has many food and beverage subsidiaries and KONO is the brand that unites them in markets globally.


Ksana refers to the Buddhist idea of infinity in an instant. Likewise, we believe at the moment of tasting a wine, one experiences its vineyard's history and winemaking process. The correct combination of these is what will make a wine last in your memory forever. The Ksana wines are unfiltered; malolactic fermentation occurs in the oak; and indigenous yeasts are used to express the terroir. The vineyard is very densely planted (7,900 plants per hectare) with very low production per vine (0.6-1.1 kg); this adds to the wines' ultra-concentration. The Ksana winery and estate 90 year-old vineyard is located in Las Compuertas, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza. The winemaker is Pablo Durigutti and the vineyard manager is María de los Angeles Morchio Giol.

Kubota Senjyu Sake

Ginjo-grade Honjozo Sake. Natural alcohol is added to achieve its clean and crisp flavor. Elegant aroma is especially comforting. Serve chilled to enjoy the clear flavor, or slightly warmed at 100F for a more mellowed touch.

La Joya

La Joya Reserve wines are Estate Bottled and produced by The Bisquertt family from the Colchagua Valley. Vina Bisquertt was founded in 1978 by Osvaldo Bisquertt Reveco, who planted his first vines in the Rinconada vineyard adjacent to some of the best known vineyards in Chile in 1974. Today, Bisquertt is managed by Osvaldo’s sons and a team of expert oenologists led by Joana Pereira, who is dedicated to producing fresh, well-balanced and elegant wines that are representative of the Colchagua style.

La Pisara Salice Salentino

Imported by Laird and Company. The Moletto winery has formed a partnership with a centuries old grape grower in the Salento growing district of the Apuglia region to launch the brand LA PISARA. The particularly dry, hot climate and unique soil combine to give intense character and flavor to the regions indigenous grape varieties such as Negroamaro, Malvasia Nera & Primitivo. La Pisara is an ancient word in Apuglian dialect that refers to a large triangular rock that was used to mill the grain.

Lagar de Bezana

Alto Cachapoal is a stunning Chilean micro-terroir within the Rapel Valley. The climate is Mediterranean, the soils are alluvial, and the altitude is 2,000 feet. Wines from Alto Cachapoal have intense color and aromatic concentration, a bright acidity, and restrained tannins. At Lagar de Bezana we only produce a limited amount of wine from our single vineyard located in Alto Cachapoal in the foothills of the Andes Mountains. We believe that making wines is an art, which is represented through the drawings on our labels by famous Chilean artist Bororo. Lagar de Bezana was started in the 1990s by Ricardo Bezanilla; the winemaker is Meinard Bloem. The modern winery is gravity-fed, and is surrounded by 130 acres of estate vines. Lagar de Bezana is a proud member of the MOVI movement.


Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). Lagaria comprises two crisp, clean, versatile whites from the crisp, clean climate of northeastern Italy's Val Lagarina (hence the name…) and a delightfully rich Mediterranean Merlot. Everything about these wines is joyful, allegro con brio. They scintillate in the glass with their light golden and brilliant ruby hues. They even scintillate on the label, where Maria Gemma Empson has captured the vibrant colors of hillside vineyards and mountainous horizons. Not to mention the great price-to-quality ratio!


Lagosta comes from the Vinho Verde wine region from the Devesa Estate. Lagosta is produced from the Azal, Arinto, Loureiro and Trajadura grape varieties traditionally used in Vinho Verde. The Region of Vinho Verde is located in the northwest of Portugal in an area traditionally known as Entre-Douro-e-Minho. Its limits are the Minha River in the North (border with Galicia) and mountainous areas in the East and South, forming the natural border between the Atlantic Ocean, Entre-Douro-eMinha, and the inland regions. The result is a natural amphitheater rising gradually from the maritime border to the inland (Amorim Girao). Winds from the Atlantic Oceans are guided into the region through the main river valleys. Once the grapes are harvested, they go through a process called dessulifitador. Dessulifitador consists of freezing the must right after the harvest and unfreezing it for each bottling. This process ensures the freshness of the wine.


“Great Value Winery to Look For” -Robert Parker The Lamadrid winery is owned by Guillermo García Lamadrid, and the winemaker, President, and co-owner is Héctor Durigutti. Lamadrid owns three vineyards in Agrelo: Finca La Matilde (planted 1929), Finca Lamadrid (planted 1973), and Finca La Suiza (planted 2004).

Lander Jenkins Vineyards

Winemaker Steve Rued provided the inspiration for Lander-Jenkins Spirit Hawk Cabernet Sauvignon and Spirit Hawk Chardonnay. "Years ago, while inspecting a newly planted vineyard, a hawk appeared overhead. It wasn't a rare or unusual occurrence but it made a particularly strong impression on me that morning: this was his vineyard as well as ours. These are the insights that keep us committed to employing the most environmentally beneficial practices. And the land rewards us with the highest quality, most flavorful fruit for our wines." Lander-Jenkins wines are produced from sustainably farmed vineyards in select North Coast, Monterey County and Central Valley vineyards. Sustainably grown. Good for the land, good for the grapes, good for the wine.

Laxas Albarino

Bodegas As Laxas has been family owned and operated since its inception in 1862. Located in the Condado de Tea sub-section of the Rias Baixas region, the bodega is located on a hill just north of the Mino River. The vineyards are terraced with a southern exposure overlooking the Mino River. The original bodega was destroyed in a fire in 1960. The bodega was rebuilt shortly after the fire and has been continually updated over the past 40 years, allowing Bodegas As Laxas to remain on the cutting edge of wine technology. Bodegas As Laxas was one of the first wineries to be awarded the status of D.O. Rias Baixas. About five years ago, the regional government in Rias Baixas had some promotional funds available. The U.S. won over several competing countries for this promotion. Today, the U.S. leads the world in imports of Albarino wines, with approximately 47% of the total Albarino exports from Spain coming to the U.S.

Le Grand Noir

From a country renowned for its wine-making tradition, Le Grand Noir wines offer untraditional blends from traditional French varietals. In a world where so many things look the same, we’re delighted to offer you a wine that doesn’t sheepishly follow the herd. Be unique. The select vineyards used to produce the wines of Le Grand Noir are located in the notable regions of Minervois and Carcassone. Situated among rolling uplands and broad plateaus between the Pyrennes and “Black” mountain ranges, the diverse soils are comprised of limestone, chalk, clay, granite, and schist. The mild Mediterranean climate provides ideal conditions for producing high quality fruit. The wines are bottled in association with Celliers Jean d’Alibert.

Lelia Garnacha

Bodegas Sucesores de Manuel Piquer located in Muel, Spain, produces wine bearing the Cari?ena D.O. designation. Cari?ena, the historically dominant town of the region, also lends its name to the indigenous varietal Cari?ena (or Carignan in France). Ironically, it seems the Cari?ena varietal is ill suited to produce quality wines in this region and much of the vineyard land has been replanted with Garnacha during the last century. Bodegas Sucesores de Manuel Piquer was founded by Manuel Piquer Guimera in 1963 and has since been fully modernized. Mr. Piquer has done an excellent job of working within the constraints of this hot, dry climate to limit the yield and control the alcohol. His resulting Garnacha wine is exciting and well-balanced.

Loom Wine

Imported by American Estates Wines. Loom Wine is a diverse collection of innovative, family owned wine companies characterized by their youthful approach and commitment to excellence.

Lustau Sherry

Emilio Lustau S.A. was founded in 1896 by Don José Ruiz-Berdejo. It was a humble beginning: Don José, a secretary in the courts of justice, used to cultivate the vineyards at his estate “Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza”, where he stored and aged the wines and afterwards sold them to the larger exporting companies. He was in fact what is known as an “almacenista”. In 1940, his son-in-law Don Emilio Lustau Ortega moved the bodega to the Santiago district, in the old quarter of Jerez. There, in buildings which formed a part of the ancient Moorish city wall, he expanded the business gradually, still as an “almacenista”. During the seventies the company continued expanding. The first step was building new bodegas at the family estate “Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza”. Then, at the beginning of the eighties and under the management of Rafael Balao, Lustau became one of the most innovative companies in Jerez. Rafael Balao had the intuition that Lustau had to be at the forefront of quality. His ideas combined tradition and innovation and carved out the way for identifying Lustau with quality and prestige. The Lustau Solera Reserva range was created from the original Lustau stocks from its beginnings as an “almacenista”. These stocks were joined by a fine selection of Sherry wines from different “almacenistas”, consisting of very special wines from small independent wine-producers, to be offered to select clients. These Sherries represent some of the best wines of the area.

Nicolas purchased the 16th century estate buildings in 2005 and is working to renovate them in as green a manner as possible. Environmental responsibility is being integrated into all aspects of the estate: buildings, vineyards, cellar work, energy conservation and generation, and packaging materials.

Milcampos Vinas Viejas

Ribera del Duero´s long history of wine-production dates back to the Benedictine monks of the Middle Ages who introduced the Tinta del País or Tempranillo grape. The region was long known for fresh, crisp rosés or"claros" sold in bulk, but in the 19th century it became a source of long-lived reds with the establishment of the incomparable estate of Vega Sicilia. Today, Ribera del Duero´s Tinta del País vines grow at exceptionally high altitudes, on soils which are a mix of chalk, slate, alluvium, quartz, limestone and in a continental climate with bitter cold winters and just about 16 weeks of summer. The soils suit the grapes perfectly, but the climate calls for early picking and attentive expert handling in the cellar. Nonetheless Ribera del Duero produces some of the best and the most long-lived red wines in Spain and the former shadow of Rioja is now considered by many to be the epitome of Spanish red wines.

Set against the Musìta hillside, in the district of Salemi, heart of the Belice Valley, is a winery founded by don Ignazio Ardagna five generations ago. Those were the late 1800s and don Ignazio planted his first, tiny vineyard on the Musìta slopes – native, bush-trained Catarratto whose golden fruit would lead to further goals and to a dream come true. Ignazio’s son Domenico, then his grandson Giuseppe, in turn, cultivated this gorgeous land, though at first, they poured their fruit into the local cooperative. Giuseppe Ardagna, however, was not content with the cooperative’s good wines. He dreamed that his children and grandchildren would one day tell the story of Musìta as Ignazio had meant it to be told; expressing the hill’s tremendous quality potential to its full extent. Today, Ignazio and Giuseppe’s aspirations have been realized: the family has not only purchased the hillside winery that at one time belonged to the cooperative; they have also renovated and extended it, all the while expanding total Ardagna acreage under vine to nearly 125 acres (50 hectares). These vineyards are partly located on the Musìta hill itself and partly located in other hilly locations around Salemi, at varying altitudes, some as high as 1,640 feet above sea level. Besides the variety first planted by don Ignazio (Catarratto), the vines are comprised of Grillo, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Nero d’Avola and Merlot. The estate is entirely family-run and every stage of the process is supervised by expert agronomists and enologists. The Musìta mission is to showcase the unique qualities of their terroir.

Ochoa Garnacha Tempranillo

The picturesque town of Olite was historically significant during the Roman Empire and was the capital of the Kingdom of Navarra during the Middle Ages. Bodegas Ochoa has documents dated 1370 A.D. confirming that the bodega was the personal winemakers for the king of Navarra and his royal court, which continued for about another 400 years. The bodega was located within the walled portion of the city, but its growth during the past century caused the bodega to be relocated outside the walls.

Paris Valley Road

It is every person in the wine industry’s dream to own their own winery. Full-control to make what one would like, how one would like and when. Paris Valley Road is the start of that dream for distribution and national brokerage veteran Brad Roberts. Brad spent the better part of his life building and creating some of the top brands in the wine biz in Arizona and California. Two years ago he decided it was time to go all in on his goal of his own brand and some dirt to accompany. When he’s not ollieing or grinding on his skateboard he is out searching for a great glass of wine that allows him to buy the best new bearings and wheels, the kind of wine that you can drink any night and not just special occassions. He takes the idea of wine as a beverage and runs with it. There is a resounding honesty to that notion and one that is often overlooked in the world of whole-cluster ferments, grand cru wines, 100 point scores, ideal food pairings and hipster varieties. Think wine for the everyman (or woman). Premium grapes are selected from select vineyards in California and PVR’s estate Chalk Knoll Vineyard ranch in San Ardo within the San Lucas AVA in southern Monterey county just north of Paso Robles, California. The cool coastal climate ensures high quality fruit that ripens slowly, developing delicate but rich flavors yielding intensely aromatic wines.

Porto Cruz Port

Imported by Prestige Wine Group. Porto Cruz is deeply-rooted in the very history of sun-drenched Portugal, founded in 1887. The tradition of making Port has been handed down in the rugged Douro valley unchanged for centuries. The valley is flanked by steep, rocky slops of schist, and is the birthplace of this exceptional wine. The rain batters the hillsides in winter, then comes the spring with its bitter gales and hailstorms that eventually give way to the scorching sun of the hot, dry summer. The battle against the elements is relentless and it is this exceptional nature of the region that gives Porto Cruz its special, lingering flavor and the ability to be called Port.

Real de Aragon Garnacha

Viticulture and wine-making in Calatayud dates back approximately 2500 to 3000 years ago. First the Romans and later the Greeks established the concepts of vineyard cultivation and each greatly improved the overall wine-making practices in the region. Calatayud is located in the Province of Aragon in northern Spain near the foothills of the Pyrenees. The area consists of complex mountain systems located in the Moncayo Sierra and encompasses an intricate hydrographical network formed by various tributaries of the Ebro River. The vineyards slope down on the south side of the Sierra de la Virgen at altitudes ranging from 550 to 880 meters. Most of the vineyards are cultivated in highly permeable and healthy soils with a high proportion of limestone. The soil is rocky and loose with low nutrients. Calatayud has a continental climate although many of the vineyards are located in very arid areas. Snow is typically on the ground in the vineyards for 5 to 7 months in the year. The summer temperatures are mild, kept down by the winds which blow through the vineyards at the foot of the Sierra de la Virgen. There is a significant difference in temperature during the day and at night, particularly during the growing and ripening periods. This temperature difference has a decisive influence on the grapes, allowing for a remarkable balance between acidity and alcohol.


Piedmont has long been known for its red wines and unique terrains. In fact it is not uncommon for the soil to vary from hillside to hillside which often causes fierce competition among wineries for prime vineyard locations to grow their vines. The complexity of nuances connected to location, soil type and exposure determined an ancient tradition of crus that distinguishes Piedmont from all other Italian regions. Piedmontese wines have been labeled according to terroir and even according to vineyards for centuries. Names like Bussia, Cannubi and Brunate have graced Barolo bottles as far back as the 1700s, and villages such as La Morra, Barolo, Serralunga d’Alba, Monforte d’Alba and Castiglione Falletto have impressed the respective marks on Barolo styles for just as long, while Barbaresco, Treiso and Neive have colored the flavors and aromas of Barbaresco wines. Reversanti began bottling their wines with the philosophy to showcase these different terroirs. Reversanti Barolo is orchestrated as a blend of three distinct hillsides or villages Castiglione Falletto, Barolo and the village of La Morra. The Barolo is almost an equal blend from these unique soils. Barolo is known as re dei vini e vino dei re, or "king of wines and wine of kings." Its noble roots have grown for some 150 years in a handful of villages, in the heart of Piedmont. Within this tiny appellation is a trinity of terroirs, each of which enhances a particular aspect of Barolo; structure, elegance and bouquet. In contrast the Barbaresco is from a single-vineyard within the Barbaresco Commune. All of the vines are south facing.


The wine pays homage to our family's Welshroots. The Goddess Rhiannon is a figure of power and mystery in Celtic mythology, associated with magical birds and horses and the contrasting qualities of change and steadfastness. Crafting a distinctive blend, likewise, balances change and steadfastness: the uniqueness of each harvest must consistently express the winemaker's personal vision.


Imported by Prestige Wine Group. This Moscato d'Asti is fresh, fragrant, and frizzante with vibrant, flavors and aromas of ripe stone fruit, tangerines, and honey. The wine is concentrated and flavorful, but not overly rich or heavy; sweet, yet balanced.

Roberts and Rogers sources its grapes for this wonderful wine from the Howell Mountain sub appellation area and for the present vintages from a vineyard jointly developed by Roberts and Rogers in 2000. The first vintage of Roberts + Rogers, Howell Mountain was the 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon, released in 2007 with around 300 cases available. The wine was immediately met with a warm welcome from the privileged few to enjoy that first vintage. As Barry Gnekow, who made the wine, said about the 2004 vintage,"This wine is so big it will be coming into its own in about 30 years, but is drinkable now.” In 2009, Roger Louer produced Louer Family Reserve Cabernet from his personal estate in St. Helena for a select group of friends. The wine was sourced from the best barrels of the 34 acre estate and has sold out before it was produced for the past three years. Roberts + Rogers will release the 2012 vintage under the R+R label for the first time. Since that first release, the Roberts + Rogers wines have continued to improve in excellence, receiving numerous awards and accolades.

Ross Andrew Winery

Don’t mess up what the vineyards give us and keep the process interesting and lively. Slightly longer version: Too many people try to make wine into much more than it is and it ends up coming across as an intimidating and elitist pursuit. Our goal is to go in the other direction: keep it simple and make it fun. At the end of the day, we’re talking about squished grapes. But it’s the process the grapes follow from vineyard to bottle that is most important. To start, we are blessed to have partnerships with the greatest growers in Washington State’s Columbia Valley and Columbia Gorge AVAs. It’s these relationships that give us the best possible Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Petit Verdot and Pinot Gris. We’re also learning how incredible Oregon’s Willamette Valley is for our Pinot Blanc dominant blend MEADOW. In the winery, we treat the grapes with the attention and respect they deserve the minute they arrive. Once the wines successfully complete fermentation, we make it our top priority to know what is happening in each and every barrel. This allows us to craft world class, singularly distinctive, consistent wines for you to enjoy Bottom line: we’re having a great time making delicious wines.

Round Hill

Round Hill offers California's most popular varietals sourced from premium Monterey Coast and Central Valley vineyards. Fruit forward flavor and consistent quality are the hallmarks of these wines. They are crafted to be approachable in style and price for the casual enthusiast yet meet the demanding standards of the most experienced palate. As with all the family wines, Round Hill is sustainably grown using the most eco-friendly viticultural practices. The wines: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Chardonnay, Oak-Free Chardonnay and White Zinfandel.

Rutherford Ranch

We are family-owned and managed and for three generations our family has been committed to earth-friendly winegrowing. "Sustainable" viticulture is not only good for the environment, it results in higher quality fruit, a prerequisite for crafting world-class wines. The winery is located on Napa Valley's scenic Silverado Trail within the Rutherford District. Of Napa's 15 designated AVA's (American Viticultural Area), the district is renowned for producing unsurpassed Cabernet Sauvignon along with other premium varietal grapes. Rutherford Ranch Winery is on the site of the original Round Hill Winery started in the 1970's by Ernie and Virginia Van Asperen and Charlie Abela. When the Van Asperen's retired in 2000, Marko and Theo Zaninovich, long-time shareholders with the Van Asperen family, acquired the winery. The estate vineyards were replanted with superior vines and the winery and tasting room have undergone significant renovations. Yet, the estate's 100 year-old olive grove and unpretentious charm remain essentially unchanged.

Salvatore Principe Prosecco

The fruit is sourced from the rolling hills of Veneto just north of Venice. The vineyards are oriented north-south and west-east each averaging vine 8 to 12 years in age. The grapes are harvested by hand. A soft pressing occurs and the juice is placed in stainless steel tanks for a brief cold maceration. Before the primary fermentation process is concluded, the wine is run into a pressurized tank where a secondary fermentation takes place allowing it to become a sparkling wine. After bottling the wine is bottle aged for over 6 weeks before being released.

San Felice

Imported by Margaux & Associates. This winery tucked away in the picturesque Tuscan countryside produces some fine wines includes its Chianti Classico, a powerful wine of great structure.

San Rocco

Imported by Laird and Company. San Rocco is the name inscribed over the main entrance to the winery. Centuries ago, the building housed clergy who worked in and around Motta di Livenza. San Rocco Pinot Grigio offer unsurpassed value. This wine is made from the highest quality varietal grapes and bottled at the estate. It is attractively packaged and is marketed at very reasonable prices. San Rocco Pinot Grigio is a great for wine-by-the-glass specials and everyday drinking.

Sancho Baron Tempranillo

This pure Tempranillo is from a 65 year old, eponymous vineyard that undergoes maloactic and 14 months aging in new French and Hungarian oak barrels. The vivacious, pure bouquet leaps from the glass with luscious blueberries and strawberries wrapped up in vanilla oak. The full bodied palate is lush and sensual with soft tannins, and a round, creamy, velvety texture. This beauty is packed to the rafters with juicy blackberry and dark plum flavors and a luscious, irresistible finish.

Santa Anastasia

Imported by Empson(U.S.A.).


Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). The Cantina di Santadi Winery is located in the Sulcis area, in South-western Sardinia, just a few miles as the crow flies from the dazzling beaches and white sand dunes of Porto Pino. The coupling of innovative spirit with careful respect for local traditions is the guiding principle for their grape growers and winemakers.

Senda 66

Bodegas La Candalaria is owned by a small group of growers and winemakers who were members of the former cooperative. They formed an association with 4 other small bodegas so they can share equipment and technology to reduce their individual overhead costs. The bodega is located near the small village of Casas de Haro where some of the oldest Tempranillo vineyards are located and traditionally yield more complex and high quality red wines.


Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). On Sardinia's extreme southwest coastline, we find Sulcis: a cape of gently rolling land, jutting out into the Mediterranean in one ample sweep of white sand, steep vineyards and emerald waves.


Siduri is named for the Babylonian Goddess of wine, who, in Babylonian mythology, held the wine of eternal life. Siduri is also the realization of a dream we have shared since we met 15 years ago, in our native Texas, and realized our mutual love of Pinot Noir. Buoyed by the belief that we could become winemakers and make our own Pinot Noir, we left our families and jobs in Texas and moved to California’s Sonoma wine country. We spent several years working at small, family owned wineries, using any and all free time to learn everything we could about growing grapes and making wine. In 1994 we launched Siduri Wines with our first release, which was met with great critical success and led us to search for additional high quality Pinot Noir grapes. Today, Siduri produces single vineyard Pinot Noir from 20 different vineyards stretching from Santa Barbara north to Oregon’s Willamette Valley. We have been fortunate enough to establish relationships with top tier growers/vineyards including: Pisoni, Van der Kamp and Clos Pepe . All of our Pinot Noir is produced unfiltered and unfined in an effort to maximize the expression of these very diverse sites. Siduri is unique in the breadth and depth of our single varietal focus.

We are proud to represent Sileni Estates.

Silver Buckle

Many of our family vineyards were originally Spanish cattle "rancheros" in the 1800s. Neighbors continue to raise cattle that are fed on our harvested cover crops. In return, they supply us with Nature's finest fertilizer! We also share a rich cutlural heritage and a commitment to natural, earth-friendly practices. The wines for the inaugural release: Chardonnay from Lodi, Red Blend of Syrah, Merlot and Malbec from California's Central Coast.


Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). Our strong attachment to the land, our passion lasting over one hundred years and our meticulous attention to the vineyards, have led to the production of Speri's wine. From the quaffable to the very highest level wines, Speri exhibits with great flair its own unique and unmistakable style. The Speri family are strong believers that wine is the "fruit of the earth" and therefore use only grapes from their own vineyards, taking complete care of every stage of cultivation.

St Gabriel

Imported by Prestige Wine Group. St. Gabriel wines reveal the complexity, nuances and diversity that are a hallmark of Germany wines. The wines are from some of Germany's best vineyard sites and are produced for the enjoyment of everyone.

St Supery Vineyards

Two vineyards - one in Rutherford at the heart of Napa Valley's Cabernet Sauvignon country, the other, Dollarhide, in a serene corner of Napa Valley - are the source of St. Supéry wines. St. Supéry wines are enjoyed by people around the world in fine restaurants and during celebrations at home. The winery is a respected member of the Napa Valley vintner community and is a responsible steward of the 1500+ acres we own in this appellation known to be among the finest wine regions in the world.

Starling Castle

Imported by Prestige Wine Group. Starling Castle was inspired by the flocks of starling birds that hover around the vines of the grand wine vineyards hoping to catch some of the sweet and flavorful grapes during the autumn harvest.


Imported by Laird and Company. The family owned Stival Winery is located in the northeastern part of Italy in the Veneto Region. It is very common in Veneto to see Italian names like Stival that do not end with a vowel. Father Mario Stival and sons Mauro and Giovanni oversee all phases of the winery's operation. Mauro and Giovanni are both oenologists and graduates of the school of Viticulture in Conegliano. Being family owned and operated assures the wines high quality. Most wines competing at this price are produced by large corporations or co-operative growers where no one person oversees the quality of the product and puts his name on the bottle. Today's market demands high quality at an affordable price. Stival delivers both.

Tangent Winery

Welcome to tangent, where we explore the limitless possibilities of white wine. We start with grapes of intense varietal character, grown in the cool, temperate Edna Valley. Winemaker Christian Roguenant works his magic, and we ultimately bottle fresh, crisp and vibrant white wines. As most food seems to cry out for clean, lively wines with good acid structure, we set out to find them. In doing so we discovered there are few here in the States, and in fact that no California winery was purely focused on making white food-friendly wines. And as our family has given us the incredible opportunity to create and manage new projects, we realized we really had something here. Something we could build for now, and for generations in the future. With our access to some of the best cool-climate vineyards – which is where most of these varietals thrive – we thought we’d be nuts not to give it a shot. Whether we’re nuts or not is a matter of personal opinion. But we do believe that tangent wines exemplify true varietal character and there is place for them on any table. We invite you to give them a try and let us know what you think. John Niven and Michael Blaney Cousins and third-generation Niven family winegrape farmers


“Take Note—This is a Winery to Follow” -Sommelier Journal Tapiz is one of the most renowned and awarded Argentine wineries. Winemaker Fabian Valenzuela was joined by Jean Claude Berrouet in 2012. Jean Claude is the recently-retired winemaker of Petrus, having presided over 44 vintages at this revered Bordeaux winery. Tapiz is proud that Jean Claude chose to work with them exclusively in Argentina. To celebrate the addition of Jean Claude, Tapiz created a new “Alta Collection” line of wines. The “Alta Collection” fruit comes solely from Tapiz's sustainably-farmed estate San Pablo vineyard in the Uco Valley. San Pablo is one of the highest altitude vineyards in Mendoza (4,600 feet above sea level). This extreme altitude provides for warm days which impart concentration to the grapes, and cold nights which give natural acidity. Fabian and Jean Claude work together to create a beautiful tapiz (tapestry) between the wine's unfiltered fruit and its oak aging. These full-bodied yet elegant wines have the acidity and complexity to drink on their own or complement food. As Restaurant Wine exclaimed: “Tapiz is a very consistent producer of excellent wines.”


Paraje Altamira, with its high altitude (4,000 feet) and cool microclimate, has become synonymous with world-class Malbecs. The soils of Paraje Altamira are very diverse, with patches of sandy, rocky and silty soils dispersed throughout the vineyard. At the moment of harvest, each soil profile imparts distinct aromatic and flavor profiles to the Malbec fruit – floral notes in the sandy patches, stony minerality in the rocky areas, and dark fruits in the silty soils. The combination of these profiles lends excellent complexity to the final wine. From co-winemakers and co-owners Alejandro “Colo” Sejanovich and Jeff Mausbach.


Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). In the medieval times Podere Terrabianca found itself in the ambiguous situation of being situated in the part of the countryside under the rule of Florence and, at the same time, also in the diocese of the Bishop of Siena. The very first documents mentioning its presence, dated 1085, describe it as being a country estate as, in fact, its name clearly implies. Today the winery Terrabianca is located at the heart of the Chianti Classico region, in the middle of Tuscany, 12 km from Siena and 50 km from Florence.

Tinto Lena

Vinos de Leon is one of five wineries owned by a larger wine company. The other four bodegas are located in other regions of Spain and produce a variety of interesting wines. Vinos de Leon grows about 60% of the grapes used to make their wines and purchases the remaining 40% from local growers. The bodega utilizes the latest technology and equipment, including stainless steel tanks for fermentation with fully automated computer control to maintain the proper temperature. Bodegas Vinos de Leon produces the full range of tinto through gran reserva wines, and all of their aged wines are matured in American white oak barrels.


The only indigenously-produced New Zealand wine being exported to the United States, Tohu wines are receiving high marks by top industry publications including Wine Enthusiast, Cuisine, and Palate. Tohu vineyards include holdings in Gisborne and Marlborough.

Tora Bay

Over a thousand years ago Kupe and Ngake gifted the name Wairarapa to this remote area. Captain Cook first sailed the coast line in 1770, to be followed in the 1800's by the first European Settlers who arrived on foot with their flocks of sheep from Port Nicholson (now Wellington). Up until the 1930's all wool and stock left the area by sea. The Pacific Ocean and its abundance of sea life still dominate this wild and beautiful landscape. From this land and its beginnings we find our daily inspiration for Tora Bay wines.


Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). Think Tuscan. That's Toscolo. The name itself is a tribute to Tuscany: a Renaissance Italian word, it means "Tuscan boy". Availing itself of state-of-the-art facilities and teamwork, production derives from some of the region's major terroirs and finest vineyards.

A careful selection inside an area of 52 municipalities only: 9,120 hectares with different compositions of soil, exposure, and lying position, to generate grapes with different features for a unique wine.

Tree of Life

The ancient land of Armenia burgeons with delicious pomegranates year after year. Besides simply eating the cherished fruit, Armenians historically have used pomegranates to make marinades, tea, juices, and wine. This delicious mouth-watering sem-sweet wine was produced using ripe pomegranates. We are proud to bring you this delicious wine. Enjoy the naturally sweet-yet-tart flavor of pomegranates as it comes through in this truly distinct wine from Armenia.


Trenza, a line of New World blends, showcase the diverse cool and warm climates of the San Luis Obispo County wine region. The wines are made in the spirit of the New World, with an avant-garde approach to blending varietals from the far reaches of the County. They are mind-blowing and exotic, combining individuality with keen imagination. We named it Trenza, because it is the Spanish word for “braid,” and a blend represents a “braid” of different varietals. San Luis Obispo County has it all when it comes to climate diversity. The Edna and Arroyo Grande Valleys in the south county are cool and windy, making wines of higher acid and concentrated fruit characteristics. In the north county, the Paso Robles area is much warmer, resulting in bolder, riper wines. Wines from any part of the county are great stand-alones, but we are astounded by the Trenza blends that our Winemaker Christian Roguenant puts together each vintage.

Triumph Cellars

The wines of Triumph Cellars, formerly Calistoga Cellars, are produced from small lots of select varietals from the estate vineyard in Napa. Fruit is also purchased from premium Napa growers under long-term vineyard contracts, including the vineyard of managing partner Roger Louer, ensuring that the wines consistently represent estate-bottled quality.

True Myth

A specialty appellation winery, True Myth produces wines made of varietals from specific regions along California’s Central Coast. We grow the fruit for our brightly tropical Chardonnay in the Edna Valley, the coolest wine region in the state, and our gutsy bold Cabernet Sauvignon is from the distinctively warmer Paso Robles region only about 30 miles to the north. Both wines are rich and delicious, each speaking to the diversity of San Luis Obispo County. Owned by the Niven family; pioneers of the Edna Valley AVA, farmers of the oldest continually harvested vines in the region, and previous owners of a Paso Robles Cab ranch. We have been a part of San Luis Obispo County’s farming history for more than four decades.

Vega Sicilia

In 1864, Eloy Lecanda founded the winery that symbolizes the golden legend of Spanish red wine. Throughout its long history, it has belonged to different owners, although it has always maintained an unquestionable personality, making concentrated, mature, generous and extremely elegant. Vega Sicilia is unquestionably a unique wine, and one of the great Spanish classics. Its personality not only comes from the maximum quality of the grape and the rigour involved in its manufacture, but also, and above all, from the care for detail that the Álvarez family has succeeded in transmitting to the wines. From a universal perspective, the peculiar characteristics of Vega Sicilia define it as a very Spanish wine and, in fact, it is one of the national wines that receives respect at the mention of its name. The Vega Sicilia wines enjoy a certain old but stately air, like period furniture; wines with great elegance, finesse, complexity and the ample capacity for maintaining their characteristics in the bottle for a long time.


The original bodega was built by Dominican monks in 1657. During the following centuries the church sold various properties to private investors. Alberto Guitierrez purchased the bodega from the church in 1941, and the bodega has been operated by the Guitierrez family for the past 3 generations. The bodega has been refurbished several times, and today is a state of the art facility with the latest advancements in technology.

Verum is a shining example of the awesome winemaking potential in Patagonia.


[VIN-ET-TEE DEL VUL-TUR] Location: Acerenza, Province of Potenza, Basilicata, Italy. Basilicata is one of Italy’s most ancient regions: colonized by the Greeks around the 7th century B.C., its noble red grape of Aglianico was first planted here at that time. In fact, the name comes from Hellenico, “Greek”. Rich in untouched natural scenery, ancient folklore and myths; principally hilly and mountainous and wedged between two seas of the Mediterranean basin, it is one of the country’s least populated areas and enjoys a mostly continental climate. Vulture is part of a large area that extends to the north of the Basilicata region, dominated by the austere profile of the Monte Vulture, a non-active volcano. For centuries the volcanoes were thought of as a source of destruction and death, today farmers are compensated for the damage caused by the eruptions of the past centuries by being able to grow vines on the cooled lava which contains an incomparable wealth of minerals, which create the grapes complexity. To get the best wines, however, require not just great terroir, but it is important to have the grapes that best fit to these lands. Varieties such as Aglianico and Greco have been shown to be able to adapt to these beautifully unspoiled areas, producing wines of great complexity and depth.

Villa Matilde

Imported by Empson(U.S.A.). The wines of Villa Matilde are the embodiment of a strong tradition combined with clever and dynamic modern innovations. Villa Matilde aims for excellence.

Today, as two centuries ago, the attention of the Villa Russiz staff is concentrated, in vineyard and cellar, on achieving the highest possible quality. This is how, over centuries of passion and experience, the magical setting of the Collio has brought forth the successes of Villa Russiz.

Villa Wolf

In 1996, Ernst Loosen took over the J.L. Wolf estate so that he could make powerful, traditionally crafted Pfalz wines to complement the light and elegant Dr. Loosen Rieslings he produces in the Mosel. In the classic style of the Pfalz, these wines are more full-bodied than Mosel wines, with higher alcohol and rich flavors of ripe fruit and stone. The Pfalz region lies between the Haardt Mountains and the Rhine River, directly north of France’s Alsace region. As in Alsace, the mountains protect the area from harsh Atlantic weather, making it one of the warmer and drier areas of Germany. In this climate, achieving full ripeness is possible in nearly every vintage. Mature, fully ripened fruit is the key to making concentrated dry-style wines that have enough body to balance the naturally high acidity.

Vina Robles

Wine crafted to represent a stylistic bridge between the Old and New worlds, capturing the finesse associated with European wines while celebrating the bold natural flavors of our estate vineyards in Paso Robles. Here, proprietor Hans Nef and winemaker Matthias Gubler bring their Swiss heritage to California's Central Coast, where they aim to unite the best of both experiences.

Vinedos y Bodegas Pablo

Vinedos y Bodegas Pablo is a family owned and operated bodega located in Almonacid de la Sierra in the Carinena region. All of the vineyards are estate owned. The Pablo family has a long winemaking tradition in the region and uses indigenous grapes from their own vineyards, which are located at the foothills of Sierra del Moncayo. Additionally, they have been dedicated to the methods of biodynamic farming and viticulture for many years. No herbicides or chemicals of any kind are used in the vineyards.

Vinos De Leon

Imported by Frontier Wine Imports. Vinos de Leon is one of five wineries owned by a larger wine company. The other four bodegas are located in other regions of Spain and produce a variety of interesting wines. Vinos de Leon grows about 60% of the grapes used to make their wines and purchases the remaining 40% from local growers. The bodega utilizes the latest technology and equipment, including stainless steel tanks for fermentation with fully automated computer control to maintain the proper temperature. Bodegas Vinos de Leon produces the full range of tinto through gran reserva wines, and all of their aged wines are matured in American white oak barrels.

Von Siebenthal

For over two decades, Mauro von Siebenthal, a Swiss lawyer and wine aficionado, had a dream. In 1998, with the financial support of four friends, Viña von Siebenthal finally became a reality. Viña von Siebenthal’s harmonious philosophy has produced an extremely elegant wine which eloquently expresses the extraordinary characteristic of the Valle de Aconcagua terroir.

Wild Ridge

Wild Ridge Pinot Noir is grown in our vineyard located on the far western edge of California’s Sonoma Coast. The 900 foot elevation site is a stone’s throw from the hamlet of Annapolis, an extreme setting blessed with a steady supply of cool marine air, goldridge soils and dense forest surrounding the perimeter. This wildness comes through as clear as a bell: vibrant blue fruit, spice and savory elements flow through a texture that’s both mouth-filling and stony­ – the mirror expression of our Wild Ridge Terroir.

Wild South

Wild South is an adventure, and it’s this spirit that led us to the Waihopai Valley, beside the Omaka River, to a wild piece of land strewn with rocks from end to end; Hell’s Gate. But hidden under that prickly name and all those rocks was the perfect wine-growing land. Rock by rock, we hand-cleared it and set about establishing Wild South wines, and this Marlborough vineyard was to be at the heart of it all. Each of our wines is a special journey of its own, reflecting the vineyards it has come from and the winemaker’s unique interpretations. Discover the special character of each.


Xabec is produced from carinena and garnacha and aged for 15 months in new French, American, and Hungarian oak casks. Deep ruby color. The bouquet displays vibrant scents of fresh red berries, cherry skin, lavender, and peppery spices, with a smoky oak nuance that gains power as the wine breaths in the glass. The palate is snappy and focused, offering bitter cherry and spice cake flavors that increase in the glass. The lavender notes continue through the energetic fruity finish.


[ZAH-BOO] Location: Sambuca di Sicilia, Province of Agrigento, Sicily, Italy Lying on a hill, Sambuca di Sicilia is located in the Belice Valley, where lush vegetation surrounds the town. The origin of the town’s name comes from its founder, Al Zabuth the Charming, an Arab Emir. It was Al Zabuth who revived the town agricultural growth, which had been previously lagging. Today, the surrounding area is strewn with archaeological artifacts that point to the generations of farmers who have lived here over the centuries. These men and women of the land have a strong tradition of farming while maintaining respect for nature. This respect for the land fits well with Farnese philosophy has led to the creation of Vigneti Zabù. In the winery’s words, “The art of winemaking can create nothing more than what the grapes contain in nature.” The vines that grow in the Sambuca region, are subjected to the hot Sicilian summer days and cool nights which help the grapes develop wonderful, layered, flavors. The heat of the summer is tempered by the generous water supply of Lake Arancio which helps to create a microclimate ideal for the vines. Zabù employs the most advanced winemaking technology which is critical to enabling the features of the grapes to be transferred intact to the bottle. It is Farnese’s belief that excessive enthusiasm while working in the vineyards is pointless if the winery is unable to maintain certain standards when bottling.


“Ripe, with aromas of damsons, black cherries and spices, but balanced. The palate is full-bodied, with juicy flavors and fleshy tannins that are quite succulent and offer good balance between alcohol and acidity.” 92 points ('10), Wine Advocate. ZaHa means “Heart” in Mendoza's native Huarpe language. The 90% Malbec fruit is co-fermented with small amounts of 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot for additional complexity and concentration. ZaHa – the heart of Paraje Altamira.


Jack Niven, with his adventurous spirit, pioneered winegrape planting through Paragon Vineyard in the Edna Valley over forty years ago. His descendants, along with winemaker Christian Roguenant, have carried that same spirit forward by bringing in varietals that are unique, racy, and intriguing. Being their riskiest venture yet, Zocker (the German word for gambler), has captured the essence of being unconventional. Grüner Veltliner is very rare domestically, but is truly one of the most food-friendly wines in the world. Though Riesling is not as rare, Zocker takes a unique approach to developing a new style. Both these wines bring an exciting and progressive approach to winemaking and wine drinking. The risk paid off, as Zocker has been highly praised and recognized in wine competitions all around the world. We invite you to try this unique wine, it’s worth the gamble!


Imported by Epic Wines. Zolo is produced at one of the most technologically advanced wineries in Argentina. Zolo selects grapes from estate vineyards throughout the different keyregions of Mendoza.

The purpose of the winery's Zolo classic line is to create a family of fruit-forward, great value wines, which can be enjoyed with a wide range of food or by themselves. The Zolo Reserves, with their ultra-high concentration, long ageing in new French oak, and aromatic complexity are made for those special occasions when one needs a wine to "blow your hat off."

Zudugarai Txakoli

Bodegas Txakoli Zudugarai is a small family owned and operated estate in the Basque region. The bodega was founded about 50 years ago and produces Zudugarai, their only wine from their estate grown grapes. Their vineyards vary in age up to 40 years old and are located on the rolling hillside along the coast.
