All this goes into creating unique wines, this Zweigelt is no exception. Exuding minerality and an earthy forest floor nose, complemented by cranberry, blueberry and black fruits. Refreshing acidity and soft tannins, this wine is easy to pair with a variety of foods!

Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Tintero Moscato

    #1 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.
