Our Wine List
What a pleasure it has been to create this wine list! We have hand-picked every entry, and happily guarantee that you will be pleased with your choice. In many cases, we know the winemakers or owners personally. Their integrity and craftsmanship are evident in each bottle.
What are phenols?
According to Ron Herbst and Sharon Tyler Herbst in “Wine Lover’s Companion,” phenolic compounds are “naturally occurring compounds present in grape skins and seeds and extracted from oak barrels.” They include “tannins and pigments and are responsible for astringency, bitterness, color, some flavors and odors (like vanillin), and antioxidant activity (which helps wine age).”
Our list, taking a phenolic “ladder” as our guide, places white wines before red wines. Wines which are lighter in style are at the top of their categories, and those which are progressively bigger in style follow. So, even if you do not recognize a particular wine on our list, you should feel confident in predicting the kind of expression of its varietal that it is delivering just by where it is located in its category. In other words, “bigger” wines will be farther down on the list in each category. If all else fails: Ask. We love to talk wine!
Cheers – Ellen
A Drinking Song
Wine comes in at the mouth.
And love comes in at the eye;
That’s all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth
I look at you, and I sigh!
– W. B. Yeats
