A fragrant white counterpart to the old-fashioned field blend formula that we admire in Bedrock's Heritage Red, Compagni Portis is a 60-year-old parcel of interplanted Gewürztraminer, Trousseau Gris, Riesling, Chardonnay (and more). The 2012 vintage was half de-stemmed and granted an extra long élevage, resulting in enhanced aromatics and structural integrity. Compagni Portis can be cellared or enjoyed young with roasted fowl, root vegetables or lobster. -AR
Mellow gold in color, with lush coconut and sweet corn on the nose. The palate is medium to full bodied, with good citric character and fine pear flavors mingling texturally on the palate. This wine, aged in 50% stainless steel and 50% used French oak, is a great late-summer food pairing. Perfect for corn on the cob, crab cakes, or ramen. Sourced from Santa Maria Valley and the Santa Lucia Highlands. Drew Farquhar
Brian and Stephy Terrizzi's Broadside project focuses on sustainably farmed vineyards and minimalist winemaking (native yeasts, minimal handling, neutral oak), as well as purity of flavor and varietal expression.Their Central Coast Chardonnay is a quintessential example of their wine growing and winemaking philosophy; a bright and creamy Chardonnay with ripe lemon and peach flavors and a saline minerality. Jonas Mendoza
Whole cluster pressed in stainless steel with four months in bottle before release, disgorged by hand with no dosage, this exciting pale straw chenin is yeasty and unfiltered, with a hint of chenin’s classic dry honey crystal character on the nose and great, drying acidity on the palate. Notes of chalk from the calcareous fossils that underlie the sandy topsoil in Shell Creek vineyard move through to a fine hint of spearmint on the finish. Great for a honey-glazed chicken or tagine with mint, or just relaxing with friends in a sweater on some rooftop on an autumn afternoon. Drew Farquhar
Sourced from Abbey Ridge Vineyard, this savory white blend is mostly Pinot Blanc with a splash of Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. With wet river rock minerality, Bartlett pear, and white floral aromas on the nose, this succulent white entices with crunchy peach and white grapefruit pith flavors and a waxy texture on palate. Perfect with roasted summer zucchini or some fat, fleshy oysters. Jonas Mendoza
The Cameron estate Chardonnay, from 2 acres of vines planted in 1987.
It’s common to find Ramatos in the Friuli region of Italy, where the term (from the Italian word for copper: Rame) is used for the local style of skin contact Pinot Grigio. It’s not so common to find a Ramato in Oregon, but when John Paul was offered access to Pinot Grigio grapes from the Abbey Ridge vineyard, he decided to try his hand at making one. Shortly after he started making his Ramato, about 5 years ago, John Paul met Sasha Radikon, and traveled to Collio to see how he and his father (the recently deceased Stanko Radikon) approached making their Ramato. He learned that the Radikons waited much longer before harvesting, yielding a darker hued and more intense wine. Though he has embraced the Radikon style and experiments now with late harvest Pinot Grigio (aged for 2 years in neutral oak like their Pinots), this is the original version that John Paul has always made. He picks the grapes at peak ripeness, (we should note this is already later than nearly everyone else in Willamette Valley), and ferments them on the skins, extracting just a touch of tannin, and giving the wine a pleasant structure. There’s tropical and stone fruit here, and also a fascinating herbal side. It’s a beautiful color in the glass and a perfect introduction to the world of skin contact wines. Drink with a slight chill. Eben Lillie
In the words of John Paul Cameron: "This came about many years ago after developing a love for fresh Friulian white wines. I talked Bill Wayne [of Abbey Ridge vineyards] into planting a couple of acres of Pinot Blanc (bianco!) so that I could pursue that line of wine. It is always a blend of more than Pinot blanc - basically absorbing anything that I maybe don't have a place for (a bit of extra Chardonnay if I run out of barrel space, a bit of Pinot grigio if I have enough for Ramato), but the overall approach is still to make a fresh lively white wine that is best consumed in the first year or two after production." I consumed a good amount of this wine during my stay at Cameron winery, and can personally attest to its versatility with food, its fresh and lively acidity, and the subtle texture that adds complexity to the wine and rounds out the finish. Bravo to the Cameroni for this excellent Pinot Bianco! Eben Lillie
"Giuliano," says John Paul, "is inspired by Vintage Tunina (which I am somewhat disappointed of late to see with screw caps...it was more serious wine than that!). So the main part of that wine is Friulano with inputs from several other components...Pinot Grigio, Pinot Blanc, Auxerrios and the true Jermann inspiration: une baci (a kiss) of Moscato." This has always been a beautifully textured wine and we're excited to have some of the 2016! ARRIVES 11/1 - Eben Lillie
Chëpìka is a collaboration between Master Sommelier Pascaline Lepeltier and talented Finger Lakes winegrower Nathan Kendall, aimed at highlighting the virtue and versatility of hybrid grapes (those derived from crossing different species within the Vitis genus). This delicate, frothy pet nat is made from the Delaware grape, which has a long and distinguished history as a sparkling wine grape. It is a delicious debut for Chepika, graceful and refreshing, with pert floral citrus notes, buoyant acidity, and hints of lemon balm. (Learn more about Delaware this Saturday 11/18 with Nathan Kendall, who will join us for an in-store tasting from 4-7pm!) Ariana Rolich
Dragonette Cellars produces small lots of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc from cool-climate vineyards in California. The biodynamically farmed Duvarita Vineyard lies just west of the Santa Rita Hills appellation on gentle, south-facing slopes of almost pure sand. Although there’s less than 15% new oak, biscuity aromas mingle with ripe peach, melon, and lemon pith flavors along with honey and vanilla undertones. Vibrant and fresh, this Chardonnay perfectly exemplifies the terroir and potential of Santa Barbara County. Jonas Mendoza
In addition to perfectly elegant, age-worthy reds, Steve Edmunds produces one of California's lightest, purest white wines from Vermentino and Grenache Blanc. Heart of Gold exudes fresh white florals, mineral water, and tingly orchard fruit aromas; flavors are bright and defined, graceful and deeply mineral, with gentle rays of citrus pith and crisp pear, golden apple, and yellow peach. Acidity is abundant and well-integated. Ariana Rolich

Chad Stock's inspiration to make sparkling wine was Brut Nature Cava with long lees aging - a worthy fascination that should inform more new-world sparkling wine production! He has now released Experiment #17 (the same base wine as Experiment #10, disgorged after 24 months on the lees) this time disgorged after 48 months on the lees. Elegance and complexity are not guaranteed to increase with longer lees aging, but in this case the extra two years contributed great length and layers, harnessing the autolytic grit and glamour of our favorite long-aged Cavas. Creamy aromas of almond cake, agrumes, lavender honey, orange blossom, and yellow apple; the palate is dry, textured, long, and lovely, with gentle bubbles permeating the palate of yellow peach, Asian pear, meadow flowers and tea leaves, with gentle yeasty notes of bee pollen, chamomile, almond, brine, and a hint of bitter earth. This is dreamy wine, with enough breadth and complexity to compliment Captain Alex's smoked bluefish, shredded and tossed with herbs, lemon, and great olive oil, or a brunch of sliced smoked tuna with scrambled eggs.

Precedent is the personal project of Nathan Kandler, winemaker at the excellent Thomas Fogarty estate in the Santa Cruz Mountains. If you've never had California Chenin Blanc or you're never been thrilled by one, Precedent is a pure rendition of the grape from 32 year-old vines planted on pink granite and silica-rich quartz soils in northeast Lodi; foot trodden and whole-cluster pressed (with a portion undergoing a few hours of skin contact), then fermented with native yeasts in used French oak. Fresh aromas of lemon blossom, golden fruit, and peach, with a clear, tingly, mineral palate of orange citrus and stone fruit, pineapple pith, chamomile, and a hint of beeswax. Broad yet delicate, distinctive and delicious. Unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulfur additions. Ariana Rolich
Precedent is the label of Nathan Kandler, longtime winegrower at Thomas Fogarty in the Santa Cruz Mountains, a renowned destination for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Precedent illustrates Kandler's versatility and curiosity and has introduced us to some truly unique California vineyard sites. Precedent Borden Ranch Chenin was one of the NY Times' top Thanksgiving picks last year. This year, we eagerly recommend the Old Vine White, which is just as intriguing and perhaps even better suited to the rigors of holiday feasting. Wirz Vineyard is home to 60+ year-old dry farmed, head-trained Riesling on decomposed granite over limestone in the Gabilan mountains. We usually have an off-dry Riesling on the holiday table, but I'm happy to go in a drier direction in this case... Concentrated, gleaming apricot, citrus rind, and tropical fruit is laced with gritty, long minerality and backed by supple texture and acidic tension. Terrific with herbed root vegetables and citrus-brined turkey, anything peppery or spicy, and mandatory with a turkey and stuffing sandwich next Friday! Ariana Rolich
This Chardonnay comes from younger vines in Rhys' Anderson Valley Bearwallow Vineyard, and aged for 14 months in 20% new French oak barrels. Like a riper Chablis, there are notes of zesty lemon, white nectarine, and just-ripe peach. On the palate, lemon juice, lemon pith, and saline flavors with bright acidity and a tight mineral core.A perfect introduction to Rhys' stunning Chardonnays. Jonas Mendoza
Made from a blend of foraged heirloom varieties of apples and Vermont and English cider apples grown by Sunrise Orchards in Cornwall, VT, this cider is made using the Méthode Ancestrale. Just like the grape-based pét nats we all know and love, it is bottled while it is still undergoing fermentation and is aged for two months on the lees before it is released unfined, unfiltered, and with zero SO2 added. The result is a bone-dry cider with pretty aromas of red berries, ripe pear, and apricot blossom. Gently sparkling and dangerously drinkable, this is one of my favorite releases from Shacksbury to date. Tim Gagnon
For Nathan Kandler, winemaker at Thomas Fogarty, Portola Springs is the most extreme of their Santa Cruz Chardonnay vineyards, with its very steep slopes and cool marine air influence. The Chardonnay grapes ripen very slowly and yields are frustratingly low. Portola Springs has a characteristic lemon drop and verbena with flavors of lemon oil, sea spray, and dried thyme. Pair with roasted cauilflower or chicken. Jonas Mendoza
A special treat for the diehard Chardonnay drinker at your Thanksgiving feast, Portola Springs Vineyard is a consistent standout in the excellent range of Thomas Fogarty Chardonnays. 2012 has riper, sunnier fruit tone than the austere 2011, without sacrificing any of Portola Springs' cool mineral core and impressive, driving acidity, owing to the low-yielding, late-ripening, nearly 40-year-old vines planted on basalt and shale. Complex and substantial enough for everything on the Thanksgiving menu, with refreshing energy to go the distance! Ariana Rolich
Treasury Cider is made by our friends at Fishkill Farms, familiar to many of our local customers from their exceptional organic produce stands at the New York Greenmarkets. From Fishkill's 80 acres of apple orchards (half are certified organic; the other half are Eco-certified), apple varieties are specifically selected for this bottle conditioned cider (Esopus Spitzenberg, Roxbury Russet, Ashmead’s Kernel, Northern Spy, Cox’s Orange Pippin, and Jonamac). It ferments to dryness in tank then undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle, creating an elegant froth and fizz that flatters the dry palate of tangy green apple, citrus blossom, and pear, with savory, yeasty notes.
