Rosé Blend 2018

Recommended by the bartender Lydija, and she knows what she’s talking about. Soft and refined palate. Glowing rose color. Tropical notes. Is there some coconut rattling around in there? Love it. — 4 days ago

Grk Bortul White Blend

The don’t have any more to sell for this year, but still let me taste. They are saving the rest for the owner’s son’s wedding. What can I say? Astounding. Crisp with Istrian the perfect touch of fastness. One of the finest wines I’ve tasted. — 3 days ago

Plavac Mali

The "grandfather of primitivo"... classic example of Plavac Mali. Smokey and rich in tannin. Perfect pairing for red meat or pasta dishes — 24 days ago

Grk 2018

My first taste of grk, the mysterious grape grown only in Lumbarda on the island of Korčula. And it’s stunning. Bright, flowery citrus nose. Flavor with strong minerality and hints of oak. I’m in love. If you come across a grk, you MUST drink it. — 3 days ago

Defora Grk 2018

Grk is really a lovely grape. A shame it only grows in this one village on this one island off the coast of Croatia. Well, a shame for you if you’re not here, but a delight for me!! Really minerally and refreshing. Must be something in the sandy soul here that gives everything that vanilla hint. Paired by the vineyard with salty feta. I’ve been told that there are less than 50,000 bottles of this varietal produced each year. Get some if you can! Only $14 at the winery. Costs more elsewhere. — 3 days ago
