Sage-Wizard-Winemaker

Posted in Uncategorized on 22 February 2018 by stephen wayne

The wines of Thierry Germain.

Thierry was a student of the sage-wizard-winemaker Foucault of Clos Rougeard. Thierry’s wines are all about energy and class. These three are 100% Cab Franc, biodynamic, and beguiling. Still under the radar so the wines are not nearly as pricy as Clos Rougeard but we believe the quality is near-equal. Pricing from $28-58. In stock…for now. #renegadewines #santabarbara #winenerd #sb #sommlife #winetasting #wineporn #seesb #trustyourpalate #montecito #sbcwine #seriousjuice #winetime #winegeeks #winewednesday #funkzone #centralcalifornia #foodiesofsb #zagat #sbiff #sbiff2018

Calabria…

Posted in Uncategorized on 21 February 2018 by stephen wayne

From the region of Cirò in Calabria: 100% Gaglioppo from Sergio Arcuri. A really fun , bright, lively wine with excellent grip, hints of earth and mountain herbs, playful, with red+black berry fruit. Subtle tannins and a long, excellent finish. Perfect with a tradition Calabrian dish such as Maccheroni col ferretto. #renegadewines #santabarbara #winenerd #sb #sommlife #winetasting #wineporn #seesb #trustyourpalate #montecito #sbcwine #seriousjuice #winetime #winegeeks #winewednesday #funkzone #centralcalifornia #foodiesofsb #zagat
