Joint

Posted in Uncategorized on 20 April 2018 by stephen wayne

A joint project with Hungary’s most reknown winemaker Hommona Attila and Moric of Austria. Diesel on the front then honey but dry. Fruit on the backend. Blossoms. Apricots. Bay leaf. Peach. This opens up to become a seamless, gorgeous wine. The petrol blows off quickly and it’s inner beauty emerges. A very seductive wine. Sadly, as of now, it’s only available in Austria. We’re working on that however. #renegadewines #santabarbara #winenerd #sb #sommlife #winetasting #wineporn #seesb #trustyourpalate #montecito #sbcwine #seriousjuice #winetime #winegeeks #winewednesday #funkzone #centralcalifornia #foodiesofsb #zagat #sommelier #805 #moric

First Nights

Posted in Uncategorized on 19 April 2018 by stephen wayne

First stop on what turns out to be our natural wine tour tonight – in a great way. O Boufés is a gem. A huge selection of great wines including two Pet Natalie we sampled ( a Gruner and a Pinot Noir ). Wonderful with the food. Ox tartare was perfectly seasoned. Cured Salmon was perfect. Charcuterie was delightful. It’s a place where you can enjoy a small plate and a glass or warm up to a full meal and all for a very fair price. Highly recommend when you’re in Vienna. #renegadewines #santabarbara #winenerd #sb #sommlife #winetasting #wineporn #seesb #trustyourpalate #montecito #sbcwine #seriousjuice #winetime #winegeeks #winewednesday #funkzone #centralcalifornia #foodiesofsb #zagat #sommelier #805 #oboufes #vienna

Maranges…

Posted in Uncategorized on 16 April 2018 by stephen wayne

A year in and wow this has blossomed into some serious Pinot Noir. Not a well known Burgundy appellation but one that can produce stellar wines at a fair price (this one for instance is $35). Husband and wife team, biodynamic from the beginning. A beguiling and enchanting wine. This and a few others from the winery are in stock at Renegade. #renegadewines #santabarbara #winenerd #sb #sommlife #winetasting #wineporn #seesb #trustyourpalate #montecito #sbcwine #seriousjuice #winetime #winegeeks #winewednesday #funkzone #centralcalifornia #foodiesofsb #zagat #sommelier #805

Spring Delights

Posted in Uncategorized on 12 April 2018 by stephen wayne

Two colorful Spring favorites at a fantastic price. The one on the left from Donnafugata is made on an island (Sicily) from the Catarratto grape ($14) and the other, BiBi Graetz, is made in a castle from the Vermentino grape ($12). Both outrageous for the price. These wines are the epitome of Spring. We are open until 6 PM the rest of the week. #renegadewines #santabarbara #winenerd #sb #sommlife #winetasting #wineporn #seesb #trustyourpalate #montecito #sbcwine #seriousjuice #winetime #winegeeks #winewednesday #funkzone #centralcalifornia #foodiesofsb #zagat

Hungry?

Another white Hungary sensation from the winery Csendes Dülö has arrived. The grape, native to Badacsony on the shores of Lake Balaton is Kéknyelü. A fiery grape with spice, minerality, weight, and good acidity. Lemon & dandelions. Just a gorgeous being. $22 and in stock today. We are open until 6 PM the rest of the week. #renegadewines #santabarbara #winenerd #sb #sommlife #winetasting #wineporn #seesb #trustyourpalate #montecito #sbcwine #seriousjuice #winetime #winegeeks #winewednesday #funkzone #centralcalifornia #foodiesofsb #zagat
