July Wine Club!
Bosco Dei Cirmioli, Pinot Grigio delle Venezie
The Bosco dei Cirmioli Pinot Grigio appears straw yellow with reflections in the glass. The nose shows fruity notes that ripen as the wine opens in the glass. The palate is delicate, velvety and harmonic.

Château Des Leotins, Bordeaux
Ready to drink, this wine has spice, dusty tannins and lots of blackberry fruits. With acidity at the end, the wine is attractive and accessible.

Our Fav Roses of the Summer!
Some of the best blush bangers of the year. Savor, sip, and satiate that summer need for sunsets, vino & good people.
Louisville's Club will feature Frico Rosato, which is produced by Scarpetta, an amazing winemaker out of Friuli, Italy. Their Rosato is Tuscan in origin with Sangiovese, Canaiolo, and Ciliegiolo shining through with natural acidity, tart cherry and a hint of herbaceousness. Even better all of their wines are priced right to share freely with with friends.

Le Mistral Tier
Mountain Tides Carbonic
A banging summer pour that is as celestial as it is lively. Per the usual, this wine is light and fun - packed with juicy, fruit flavors and earthy aromatics. From tart cranberry, cherries to raspberries, this wine is a veritable cornucopia of juicy joy. Grab a glass, find a pool, and enjoy!

L’Ecole Perigee Seven Hills
Perigee epitomizes this Estate vineyard’s distinctive cedar and dark fruit, framed by a structured elegance. It explodes with aromas of spiced blackberry and boysenberry, tobacco and licorice, lifted by floral notes of violets and Provençal herbs. Velvety on the palate, it concludes with a complex and silky finish.

Lexington: Big Salt Orange Rosé
Hailing from Elkton AVA, in Oregon, Big Salt “Orange Rose” is nearly a 50/50 blend of ramato style Pinot gris and a co-fermented, skinzy Riesling.
Organic, 40+ year-old-vines on Windygap soils (deep, well-drained residuum and colluvium from sandstone and siltstone); blend of 7 day skin contact fermentation in amphorae, cask and egg, multiple racking to aerate and allow each part of the wine to age in multiple vessels. Nothing added except minimal SO2 before bottling, unfined/unfiltered.
It has been HOT outside. Serve this ice cold and enjoy! A fun summery slushie of hibiscus, tangerine and fuzzy peach skin, with enough tartness to balance the aromatics, and a refreshing wave of acid on the finish. It is, what it is.
Louisville: SPARK, The Eyrie Vineyards
David Lett was a true pioneer in Oregon winemaking and starting planting Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris over 50 years ago. Now in the hands of second generation, Jason Lett, they are still producing beautiful Oregon wines and with SPARK, a new vision for rosé. Primarily Pinot Noir with Chasselas doré and Pinot Blanc, this natural wine is rested for 12 months on the lees with no residual sugar. Slightly sparkling, give this crown cap a pop and enjoy!
