Wine of the Month: 

Bava Barolo  

This garnet-red wine is from Castiglione Falletto in the Piedmont region of Italy, the geographic heart of the production of Barolo. This mountainous region is famous for DOCG wines like Barolo, which are composed solely of Nebbiolo grapes. 

The Bava Barolo is a full bodied, high-acidity wine with a strong, earthy finish. It has a robust profile with floral, fruity and oaky notes.  

This Barolo is an ideal pairing for tender red meats like beef and lamb, as well as rich pasta dishes.

The Month: $64.35


Spirit of the Month: 

Singani 63

Singani is a Bolivian brandy distilled from white Muscat of Alexandria grapes. It is the national distilled spirit of Bolivia, and is produced solely from vineyards located 5,250 feet or more above sea level. 

Singani 63 is a clean and crisp spirit, with a smooth finish and a complex, yet subtle, bouquet of aromatic and floral tastes, including mountain meadow flowers, white pepper, and jasmine.

Traditionally served with ice and a slice of lime, Singani can also be mixed with ginger ale to create a “Chuflay”.

Normal Price: $63.25
