Your June, 2016 Wine Selections

What is Vinoterica?

Well, you've got your "Vino"—everybody knows what that is—but what wine should you drink? Maybe it's time for something a little different, unusual, off-the-beaten-path from what the wine aisle in the grocery store has to offer. Maybe something a little "esoteric"?

My pleasure is to bring you a new wine adventure every month! As a Vinoterica member, you'll receive a monthly delivery of two esoteric, eclectic and inspired wines from around the world—the very best interplay of terroir, varietal, and winecraft! And all for the low subscription price of $35/mo (+ tax; pickup at Bocanova), or $50/mo (tax & overnight shipping incl).

Plus, your membership includes some great Bocanova perks, such as a 20% discount on our special Rick's Supper Club 1st Thursday wine dinners (member + 1 guest); 50% off wines from our list whenever you dine at the restaurant (max. party of 6); and the ability to purchase wines from our list for home consumption at a price generally lower than retail.
All in all, it's a great deal!

A Great French Sparkler, plus a "Hey Wow!" Red from the Loire

2012 Barmes-Buecher Crémant d'Alsace

(Alsace, France) 40.7% Pinot Gris, 34.6% Pinot Auxerrois, 2.5% Chardonnay, 8% Pinot Blanc

Farmed biodynamically, with no enzymes or yeasts or sugar added (zero dosage); and it is not fined. The result is an elegant sparkler bursting with citrus (orange and lime), pear and floral qualities, persistently intense, rich and refined on the palate with long-lasting freshness and expressive structure.

2014 Les Hautes Noelles "HeHo"
(Val de Loire, France) 45% Cabernet Franc, 45% Grolleau noir, 10% Gamay

The name Hého translates to something like "Hey, wow!" as in "Hey, wow! This wine is freaking delicious and inexpensive!" But what makes it so good is a lot of interesting and conscientious winemaking behind the scenes. Certified organic, with a beguiling combination of structured depth and that everyday yum factor.
