Dry Bubbly

Bubbles for the Pro


Toso Toso $11.00

The cool nights at Mendoza's elevation mean there's more than Malbec possible here. This 100% Chardonnay based bubbly offers delicious apple and pear flavors as well as a subtle touch of yeasty fresh baked bread. Soft and creamy on the palate, this is very easy to drink and enjoy. This drinks sooo easily and is ideal for holiday parties.



Casteller Cava Casteller Cava $12.00

Casteller usually sells their grapes to high end producers but retains a few of the best acres for this affordable, quality Brut. Slightly higher in elevation allows for better acidity balancing bright clean citrus and green apple flavors. A full year on the lees gives the bread dough nose and depth of character.



Casa de Valor Cava Casa de Valor Cava $15.00

Delicious and affordable, lovely clean apple and lemon aromas with lovely stone notes. Made with the 3 amigos of Parellada, Macabeo and Xarel-ho.



Gruet Blanc de Noirs Brut Gruet Blanc de Noirs Brut $16.00

A wine that exceeds all expectations. Aged for at least two years, the palate is developed and shows rich complex flavors, creamy texture with amazing raspberry and toasty aromas. A fine salmon color with very aggressive mousse.



Avinyo Cava Avinyo Cava $17.00

A big favorite of Bitto’s, this lovely vintage Reserva is Spain's throwdown to Champagne. Aromas of bread dough, lemon curd, pineapple and citrus. All old vines of Macabeo, Parellada and Xarel-lo. . . go on taste it. Leave over priced Champagne for the rappers, Cava is where its at!. Best Cava for the dollar ever?



May George Cremant de Loire May George Cremant de Loire $19.00

Truly a gorgeous Cremant. Almost all Chenin, there's faint whispers of frangipani, peach, and honeysuckle nestled in the limestone and baking bread aromas. Bracing acidity, clean finish, one of the best we've found. As good as any Vouvray Brut at half the price!





Raventos i Blanc Cava Brut Rose 2012 Raventos i Blanc Cava Brut Rose 2012 $29.00

A truly remarkable vintage rose cava. Delicious nose of blueberry and raspberry scones with tiny pin prick bubbles. The monastrell brings just a faint whisp of blueberry and blackberry to the traditional apple, pear and light melon flavors. Finishes so clean and light.



GH Mumm Grand Cordon Rouge Brut GH Mumm Grand Cordon Rouge Brut $44.00

A long aging provides additional flavors of vanilla, roasted nuts and a hint of toast. A result of the carefully chosen infusion of terroir and reserve wines, the finish is long. Imparting to the finish is lightness from Chardonnay, fruitiness from Pinot Noir and roundness provided by Pinot Meunier.



Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve $64.00

Full-bodied and intensely flavored, this exhibits mature characteristics of candied fruit, coffee with amazing almond and vanilla pastry. Lovely, sexy with fresh lemon and ginger nuance.. Seamless harmony and texture, with a long, long, long finish.



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #1 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Tintero Moscato

    #2 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.

  • Finca a Moras Barrell Select Malbec

    #3 Finca a Moras Barrell Select Malbec

    Wow, yes there is cheaper Malbec. There is cheaper everything. This is a focused, complex, intense wine that shows the high altitude with a core of acidic balance. Powerful sweet plum and blackcurrant fruit support a dark mocha and light vanilla stucture and the very full bodied taste loaded with spice and blackberries. The finish is long, lingering and velvety smooth. A great wine with anything coming off the grill. (behind by 12 bottles)

  • Don Ramon

    #4 Don Ramon

    What can we say about this little $10 wine? It's easy drinking but with some fun Old World character. 6 months on oak lends a bit of structure but only enough to keep the bottle from being guzzled in one go. Nice dark cherry, a bit of warm earth, and priced to drink a couple times a day. (behind by 2 bottles)

Fun New Arrivals

  • Poseidon Pinot Noir

    From vineyards with a view of the bay comes this well balanced, lively and delicious Pinot Noir. A easy drinking, medium-bodied wine showing off some rare and black pepper spiced Hungarian oak to balance the raspberry aromas and flavors.

  • Three Brooms

    Three Brooms

    This single vineyard, certified sustainable sav blanc shows lovely white flower, chili pepper, and gooseberry on the nose with some sandy mineralogy. Very nice weight and balance showing passion fruit, ripe apple flavors. Such a pleasant surprise is the roundness, the acid is lively and energetic but not abrasive.

  • Dancing Pines Gin

    Dancing Pines Gin

    A beautiful Colorado original. An aromatic, dry, refreshing spirit crafted with 6 botanicals, each contributing a unique component to the harmonious whole. Lovely bright citrus comes through on the finish prompting another sip, and another..

  • Gotes del Priorat

    Gotes del Priorat

    A slightly different and wonderful lighter take on Priorat. The gorgeous blue slate show immediately on the nose, Carignan is there but with richness and elegance. Really pretty and an homage to the fruit. Gorgeous leather and blue black fruit flavors with spice and soft leather. Organic, hand picked and just 9 months in French, this really is a lovely wine!
