Happy Fall Wine Club Members!
What a summer we had! It's hard to believe it is already October! If you follow us on Instagram, or subscribe to our newsletter, you know that we have decided to discontinue our dinner service for this fall & winter. We will instead be launching the GOODONYA DINNER CLUB, which will provide our organic food as meal kits for home.
The other GOOD news is that we will still be hosting our monthly pick-up parties in the wine lounge 🍾 with an upgraded small bites menu. Our chefs will now have more time to make take our events to the next level.
There are a handful of grape varietals that get a bad reputation, I'm thinking Riesling, Moscato, Muscat and even Zinfandel sometimes! People hear these grape varietals and they think "That's a sweet wine", which in some cases may be true. However more often than not, these grapes can produce beautiful bright acidic dry wines.
I am excited to bring you two of these varietals this month, one in a blend and one as a stand alone.
Robert and Milli Pintacsi from St. Romediux are reinvigorating the new world’s most prestigious terroir with new varieties, new ideas, and a pioneering spirit that has marked Napa valley generation after generation. They work a minimalist treatment of classic old-vine field-blended parcels of Zinfandel and Petit Sirah and Syrah as well as Teroldego, Tocai Friulano, Muscat Canelli, and Sangiovese.
This month we are featuring their dry Muscat Canelli. This low alcohol and 0 sugar wine is an explosion of melon, citrus blossom and tropical fruit.
On the Riesling side, we have a white blend from Days Wines out of Willamette Valley, Oregon. Founded by winemaker and owner Brianne Day in the 2012 vintage, Day Wines is a producer of boutique, artisanal bottlings made from fruit sourced exclusively from a small group of Oregon growers who utilize Biodynamic, Organic and/or Sustainable vineyard practices. In this white blend you will find Asian pear, star-fruit, and white peach on the nose, with spicy ginger, lemon oil, apricot on the palate.
