Domaine du Petit Romain Costières de Nîmes Rosé Blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Cinsault. The grapes are harvested at optimum maturity.They are then destemmed and macerate cold with a longer or shorter duration depending on the desired color intensity. This rosé has a very pretty bright, bright dress. His nose is very expressive and aromatic. The palate is lively and fruity.
Tre Monti Vigna Rocca Albana 100% Albana, organic. Opens with scents suggesting ripe apricot, honeydew melon and Spanish broom. The round enveloping palate doles out juicy peach, ripe pear, bitter almond and a hint of honey. Mouthwatering acidity and a blast of tangerine give it a mouthwatering close. Romagna, Italy
Ranch 32 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown Monterey From the beginning, they have been committed to environmental stewardship and sustainable farming and winemaking practices. A deep and intense entry from Monterey County the Ranch 32 is a beautiful ruby red color. Aromas of raspberries entice the nose and give way to luscious ripe blackberry, currant, and dark fruit flavors on the tongue. Medium in body yet firm, muscular and extremely well structured. The finish has just the right amount of tannins and is quite substantial.

Class led by RJ Spain is awesome, I know first hand because I lived there for a year and a half teaching English. Too bad I didn’t know boo about wine. But I do now and so are you because we are gonna hit sparkling, still whites and reds and we’re gonna finish off with a killer-fortified dessert wine. We’re talking Cava Gran Reserva, Albarino, Tempranillo, Garnacha, Carinena (Priorat region) and Pedro Jimenez. Then after, we’ll go chase down some windmills with Sancho Panza. Gotta go because my paella is ready. Adios amigos.

The magical A-HA moment. We've all had it. The very moment a specific food and or wine you have eaten or drunk when time stops. Rainbows explode in the sky, choirs of angels descend singing praises while unicorns come prancing by. The magical moment when you realize a precise food and drink is your jam. When one can do this on command, life seems just that much brighter. So join us at Wine Republic for our first in a series of food and wine classes with winemaker Wes Hagen on August 15 and let's make some dreams come true. Namaste.
