Was told last year when I tried to schedule a visit they charge everyone an “experience” fee, which is non-refundable, and is charged regardless of how much wine is purchased…I passed. Too bad, I enjoy their wines.

@Shay A I have more recently been selecting wineries offering food&wine combo pairings for visits, so not expecting a refund.....though, this one was basically just a tasting (included a small meat/cheese plate) and yes there was no tasting fee discount for the wines I purchased.

Great pull


Little Wine # 5 Red Blend

My final bottle of Little Wine #5 Aromas of dark plum, prune, mushroom, chocolate with a slight whiff of H2S which blew off. A lush and fluid mouthfeel of blackberry showing that gorgeous old vine fruit finishing with dry tannins. Pretty much unchanged from the previous two tastings. A great match with Lamb, golden syrup and Pistachio gourmet sausages. A blend of the 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 vintages. All were good in the Barossa. — a year ago

Etna Rosso 2019


A light, floral red. A little thin, but well made. Lemon, raspberry on the nose. Fuller on the palate. Glass #5 at Asta with Marmot #1. — a year ago

Bernard Magrez

Le Paon Languedoc Rosé Blend 2020

Rosé of the day bottle #5 Much better on the front end than on the back end. I mean finish. But you know what we mean. Beautiful bottle. May buy another just for the label to sit on my shelf. Higher alcohol content so you do have that going for you. — 4 months ago

Le Clos des Grives

Vin Jaune Côtes du Jura 2014

#5 of Jura Savoie evening
Beautiful aromatics with hazelnut & walnut, ripe red apple, bruised orchard apples, a herby/earthy freshness.
Spicy & fresh mouthfeel, mouthwatering acidity, an earthy, nutty finish. Delicious and so food friendly.

Domaine du Colombier

Cuvée Gaby Crozes-Hermitage Syrah 2016

Deep Garnet color. The nose is discreet at first glance but the mouth is beautiful in balance. Full-bodied mouth, silky. Lardy smoky notes, spicy black fruits, close to a Cornas. Nice bottle for its price.

Robe Grenat, profond. Le nez est discret de prime abord mais la bouche est magnifique d’équilibre. Bouche corsée, soyeuse. Notes fumées lardées, fruits noirs épicé, proche d’un Cornas. Belle bouteille pour son prix.
