“The first rule of WINE CLUB is… ALWAYS talk about WINE CLUB!”
The Wine buyers (Andrew and Dale) pick two wines each month for you that we love, and you will too. One white (or rose, or bubbly) and one red. The total value of wines will exceed $40 (usually between $45 and $50) and the longer you sign up for, the better the deal! (see below for pricing and perks)
Galerie, Naissance, Napa Valley, Sauvignon Blanc, 2014
A wonderful California style Sauvignon Blanc made by Laura Diaz Munoz. Originally from Spain, she’s worked there, New Zealand, and Chile, but has settled in Napa and makes the Galerie line of wines for the Jackson Family. Her first wine memory is of enjoying a Spanish Albarino. This Sauvugnon Blanc displays some of the minerality I associate with a good Albarino or Califonia Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is beautifully balanced, you’ll really appreciate this wine’s elegance as it grows in the glass. Broiled Sea Bass with olive oil and Goat’s Cheese, Grilled Shrimp tacos with guacamole, light Asian fare, sushi or Thai salads.

Böen, Pinot Noir,Russian River Valley, Sonoma, CA, 2015
This is Joseph Wagner’s project, part of his Copper Cane company, you may know him as the winemaker of the Belle Glos single vineyard Pinot Noir wines that he still makes, and for the Meomi Pinot Noir which he developed but has since sold to Constellation Brands. The Wagner family has farmed the Caymus vineyard since the 1940s and established the Caymus winery in 1972. (the same year Wine World opened in North Augusta!) The Wagners also make the Emmolo, Mer Soleil, and Conundrum wines. Elouan is made by Joseph as well. This Russian River Pinot is definitely in the Wagner style, big, bold, and fruity. As fruit forward as this wine is, it also shows lots of richness, complexity, and nice balance across the palate. The Tech. sheet says “Cola, vanilla cream soda. Chocolate and black licorice carries through to the palate. Dried strawberry flavors with hints of cranberry and prune. Fresh, bright acidity. A dustiness or earthiness and very fine and persistent tannins.” Seems just about right to me! Cuban style sandwich with ham, gruyere, and chopped olives, Jerked Chicken, pasta salad with bacon and Italian sausage, veggie lasagna w/ portabello.
