Light Sweeter Bubbles

Light Fruity Easy Beginner


Poquito Moscato Poquito Moscato $9.50

Lightly sparkling, fruity and sassy, Poquito is small in size but big on taste. Delicate floral aromas combine with a sweet yet refreshing palate of ripe peaches, pears and apricots. Apply liberally at any social occasion. Great right out of the bottle but really amazing with mint and rum as a mojito!



Tomasella Ose Tomasella Ose $15.00

Ready to see what other sweeet bubbles besides Moscato Italy has to offer? From the Northeast of Italy comes this lovely demi-sec. Not quite as sweet as Moscato, and with more body. Lovely plum and cherry flavors. Enjoy on our patios or with our lovely soft goat cheeses next door.



Negro Birbet Brachetto Negro Birbet Brachetto $15.00

How these bright, refreshing and slightly sweet styles get ignored is beyond me. Brachetto when made well shows lovely, rich raspberry and strawberry on the nose. The light sparkling quality tempers the explosion of vibrant, sweet red berry fruit. Just incredibly refreshing and lively and made for a lunch of fruit, cheese and charcuterie. And you know we love that!



Tintero Moscato Tintero Moscato $16.00

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.



Saint Hilaire Blanquette di Limoux Saint Hilaire Blanquette di Limoux $16.00

Sparkling wine that predates Champagne by at least 150 years! Light, crisp and fruity, if you like Champagne give this a try for a bargain, you wont regret it.



Vecchia Modena Chiarli Lambrusco Vecchia Modena Chiarli Lambrusco $17.00

Delicious, full of dark raspberry, violet, rose, blueberry and black pepper aromas & flavors. Called “Old Modena” as the winery in Modena (just above Bologna in Emilia Romagna region) is 150 years old. Done in the "secco" or dry style, this is nothing like the one you'd find in the "olive garden". This is the quintessential wine to drink with a friends on a hot summer day.



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #1 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time.
