2019 Barbera d'Asti "Asinoi" [3L Bag-in-Box] (Carussin)

Carussin, Barbera d'Asti "Asinoi" 3 L, Piemonte, Italy 2019

{biodynamic} 100% Barbera

LEATHER & CURRANT, TANGY BALSAMIC WITH A KISS OF FUNK

Matteo and Luca Garberoglio are the genial, laid-back dudes behind the 85 year-old Carussin estate, where they spend their days brewing beer and hanging out with donkeys. Oh, and making incredible wine. This powerful Barbera is an homage to the noble donkey, the raising of which has been a passion for Matteo and Luca's mother Bruna for decades. Mostly complex leathery red fruit reminiscent of a glaze or reduction, the wine gains edge with a tiny hint of tarry earth and subtle barnyardiness. Apropos for a wine named after a donkey.

Serving Suggestion: Juicy burgers with swiss cheese and caramelized onions, pizza with artichoke and hot pepper, game (like venison or boar) in a dark fruit glaze.

2019 Beaujolais-Villages Rosé [3L Bag-in-Box] (Vieilles Cadoles, Domaine des)

Domaine des Vieilles Cadoles, Beaujolais-Villages Rosé, Beaujolais, Burgundy, France 2019

{sustainable} 100% Gamay

CHERRY & GREEN STRAWBERRY, LEMON, FENNEL & RADISH SPICE

This lovely rosé pours ballet slipper pink and dances out of the glass with bright, underripe fruit aromas and a spicy herb freshness. One of four selections that we currently (and exclusively for the Southeastern US) offer from Bruyères, a fiercely naturalistic producer. Small and situated across 20 acres just south of Brouilly, smack in the center of the greater Beaujolais region, Jean-Pierre Teissèdre's estate is continuously blowing us away with value and sheer deliciousness.

Serving Suggestion: Arugula salad with strawberries, poppyseed dressing, and goat cheese.

{biodynamic} 70% Grenache, 30% Syrah

RED RASPBERRY & CURRANT, TANGY PRUNE, VIOLETS

Where Vacqueyras, Gigondas, and Beaumes come together in the northwestern reaches of the Mediterranean Vaucluse department, Domaine La Ligière plies its craft, siphoning the sun and the wholesome perfumes of the Provençal countryside into breathtaking wines. This Cotes du Rhone is a full stop lighter than the estate's profoundly rich Vacqueyras and Gigondas cuvées, but it shares with them a profoundly pretty aromatic mystique and spicy, violet-hued Grenache-ish-ness.

Serving Suggestion: Grilled pork chop w/ lavender/balsamic glaze & garlic-laden smashed potatoes. Seitan gyro w/ lemony cucumber sauce, dill, & cayenne pepper.

2018 Garnacha "Generación 73" [3L Bag-in-Box] (Tempore, Bodegas)

Bodegas Tempore, Garnacha "Generación 73", Aragón, Spain 2018 [3L Bag-in-Box]

{organic} 100% Garnacha/Grenache

BLACK RASPBERRY & DRIED MISSION FIG, VIOLETS & CARAMEL

This expansive yet energetic Grenache (Garnacha, of course, in its naive Spain) is one of the most powerful reds we’ve carried in BIB (Bag-In-Box format aka “box wine" or "boxed wine”). Bodegas Tempore is passionately organic, and we’ve been swooning over their fantastic values since we met them in the late aughts. Stylistically, this is Rhone-meets-Rioja with powerful ripe fruit, spice, and caramelized/vanilla richness. Pump it up!

Serving Suggestion: Morcilla / blood sausage (or fatty, flavorful salisbury steak if you’re a blood-hating wuss) w/ boiled & subsequently fried potatoes & sliced beets w/ parsley. Savory ricotta-fig toast w/ black truffle-infused olive oil (this is that kind of box!).

WARM, BRIGHT, FRESH STRAWBERRY, BLACK CHERRY & VIBRANCY.

According to Bodegas Tempore “our wines represent our land, warm and persistent’, and boy does this one ever! This Garnacha is bursting with aromas of berries and sweet spices and flavors of stewed plums, juicy red berries, all back up by firm tannins. This wine is as food-friendly as it gets, but fantastic on its own. Let each sip transport you to the Aragonese countryside.

Serving Suggestion: Slow-cooked lamb, BBQ pork or chicken. Catalan veal stew w/ prunes & potatoes.

2020 Pecorino [5L Bag-in-Box] (Centorame)

Centorame, Pecorino [5 liter Bag-in-Box], Abruzzo, Italy 2020

100% Pecorino {organic}

LEMONY FRESH & ZESTY, FLORAL & HERBACEOUS, LIGHTLY SMOKY

The Pecorino grape is named because sheep, pecora in Italian, supposedly love to eat it as they’re herded down the hills and through the vineyards in picturesque Abruzzo. This may be a perfect wine to have after a vigorous session of training a horse or herding some sheep - bright, clean, and zesty lemon citrus, with just a touch of jasmine flower and fresh herbs. Fresh and refreshing, it’s as at home in your glass on a hot summer day as it would be on the dinner table.

Serving suggestions: In a delicious quirk of fate, Pecorino cheese! Fish soup w/ tomatoes, rosemary, vinegar, & a tiny pinch of red pepper flakes.

{biodynamic} 100% Riesling

PRISTINE CITRUS & TANGY APPLE, A GLIMMERING GLASSFUL

Just when we thought the lean, clean appeal of dry Riesling couldn’t deliver more, that’s precisely what it does: 33% more, to be exact! The classic, mineral-laced lemon flavors and aromas are ripe, restrained, and immediately mouthwatering. This generous liter of chiseled, elegant refreshment from the Rheinhessen’s masterful Alexander Gysler marries the quality that’s always drawn us to his outstanding wines with quantity that we didn’t dare dream of. We might even be willing to share...

Serving Suggestions: Albacore tuna nigiri & tempura artichoke hearts. Double cream cheeses. Báhn mì!

Bodegas Tempore, Rosado de Garnacha "Terrae" [3L Bag-in-Box], Calatayud, Spain 2020

{organic} 100% Garnacha

STRAWBERRY & BLOOD ORANGE, TANGY MOUTHFILLING FRESHNESS

Aragón might take its name from an ancient kingdom and countryside littered with the ruins of imposing fortresses and medieval castles, but there's nothing imposing or ancient about this delightfully tangy rosé made from the region's native Garnacha grape. Its striking fuchsia iridescence offers a clue to the flavors we might expect - lip smacking strawberry and red raspberry fruit spiked with vibrant citrus undertones of bold blood orange and delicate lemon. Aww yeah, get your Aragón on! A Wine Authorities exclusive!

Serving Suggestions: Meaty crab cakes w/ saffron & grilled artichokes w/ garlic & lemon juice. Half-cured albacore ceviche w/ cilantro & avocado.

2020 Rosso ''Completo'' [3L Bag-in-Box] (Carussin)

Carussin, Rosso "Completo" [3L Bag-in-Box], Piemonte, Italy 2020

{biodynamic} Mostly Barbera, with a little Freisa, Dolcetto & Grignolino too

RIPE CHERRY & PLUM, PEPPER & FRESH HERBS

Our favorite donkey has returned from the Ferro family farm in Asti carrying a care package of lovely liter bottles. Arriving just in time for summer, this zesty red blend is refreshing and (potentially a little too?) easy to drink without coming off too light or lean. Biodynamically farmed from chalk and clay-based vineyards, this quartet of signature Piemontese grapes gets along splendidly, finding a beautifully balanced combination of generous fruit, herbaceous spice, vibrant acidity, and invigorating tannic texture. TAKE ME TO YOUR LITER!

Serving Suggestion: Crispy pizza w/ pesto & sundried tomato. Pork tenderloin marinated in olive oil, & Growers & Cooks chicken stock.

2020 Rosé "Mediterranée" [3L Bag-in-Box] (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, Vaucluse Rosé "Sud Absolu" [3L Bag-in-Box], Southern Rhone, France 2020

{organic} 95% Carignan, 5% Muscat

JUICY RASPBERRY & LEMON ZEST, FIRM & HYPER-REFRESHING

Carignan, with its reputation for robust rusticity, is probably not the grape that you'd immediately suspect upon tasting this vibrantly berryish and lightly floral rosé from the northwestern fringe of the Provençal countryside. As eloquently balanced as this wine is, we can't help but think of it as the adult equivalent of a raspberry-lemon push pop – albeit dry! Because a bottle couldn't possibly provide enough wine this refreshing, Domaine La Ligière has brilliantly put it in a three liter box!

Serving Suggestion: Papaya salad w/ grilled squid & pork. Battered & fried cubanelle peppers w/ lemon juice & paprika.

2020 Rosé "Venus de Pinchinat" [3L Bag-in-Box] (Pinchinat, Domaine)

Domaine Pinchinat, Venus de Pinchinat Rosé [3-Liter Bag-in-Box], Provence, France 2020

{organic} Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault

DRY! WHITE CHERRY & CITRUS, FLOWERS (3L BIB = 4 bottles)

Although the vines that yield this wine are grown within the Cotes de Provence appellation and meet all of the criteria including being the correct grape varieties, they are planted at the bottom of their vineyard which receives the Provence appellation designation. This wine is a stunning value and a rare gem. Most similar rosés labeled as Cotes de Provence sell for $15-$25 per bottle in the US, making this bountiful box one heck of a deal!

Serving Suggestion: Classic, rustic paté, ash-ripened goat cheese, crusty bread and pickled veggies provide the perfect match!

2018 Rouge "Mediterranée" [3L Bag-in-Box] (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, "Mediterranee" Vaucluse Rouge [3L Bag-in-Box], Southern Rhone, France 2018

{biodynamic} 50% Carignan, 50% Syrah

FLESHY BLACK FRUIT, DARK & ROASTY, LAVENDER-LISCIOUS

If you thought that sipping sweet tea on a Mississippi porch was the only way to experience the "absolute south," you've got another think coming! This Rhone red has the buxom boldness of Dolly Parton, the meatiness of mee-maw's pot roast, and the freshness of a sack o' lavender tucked into your dresser drawers. Not unlike a truck driven resolutely into a river, Carignan is one histrionic grape! Tempered by its more northerly collegue, Syrah, it's an absolutely beautiful addition to any dinner table. Our compasses are going crazy, and we've reached the "Sud Absolu"!

Serving Suggestions: Ratatouille, spaghetti Bolognese, eggplant parmesan, lawnmower races...

2020 Rouge "Venus de Pinchinat" [3L Bag-in-Box] (Pinchinat, Domaine)

Domaine Pinchinat, "Venus de Pinchinat" Rouge [3-Liter Bag-in-Box], Provence, France 2020

{organic} Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon

DARK BERRIES, CURRANTS, SMOKE. SMOOTH.

The vineyards of Pinchinat have been farmed for wine grapes since the Romans occupied this area 2000 years ago. The famous Venus of Aix en Provence and dozens of other Paleolithic artifacts have been found among these very vines. This red is dark, rich and satisfying but also smooth and very quaffable; historic even!

Serving Suggestion: Great with a simple roast, burgers, meatloaf or pasta. With a little chill it shifts down to be suitable with pork, chicken and even tuna salad.

2020 Sauvignon Blanc "Gran Verano" 3L BIB (Apaltagua, Viña)

Gran Verano, Sauvignon Blanc 3L BiB, Curico, Chile 2020

[sustainable] 100% Sauvignon Blanc

GRAPEFRUIT & MANGO, PASSION FRUIT, RACY, RIPE, BOLD & ZESTY

Sauvignon Blanc is one of Chile's most celebrated specialties, and the Loire Valley native does excellent work in the nation's Valle Central. Somewhat more tropical than the colder-climated offerings associated with New Zealand's Marlborough and France's Sancerre, this one combines pineapple-like juiciness with Sauvignon's typically angular acidity and famously grapefruit-like flair. This is a tremendous value of tremendous proportions – just shy of a gallon!

Serving Suggestions: Pan-seared flounder w/ capers & lemongrass. Crispy flatbread w/ spicy charcuterie, anchovies, & pineapple.

{organic} 100% Tempranillo

RIPE PLUM & RASPBERRY, GENTLE EARTH, KISS O’ CREAMY OAK

Tempore crafts marvelous values that radiate the signature ripeness born of the rugged Arogónese landscape, using the sun-soaked arid environment to their advantage. Stemming from the same focus on fastidious, organic viticulture as their bottled cuvées, this Tempranillo features six months of oak aging, yielding a familiarly creamy touch that wouldn’t be out of place in classic Rioja. One of our fullest-bodied box offerings, this beauty packs three liters of assertive yet amicable purple-fruited oomph.

Serving Suggestions: Pastured pork carnitas w/ sour cream, cilantro, & avocado. Grilled kabobs w/ bell peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, & mushrooms.

One of the most powerful reds currently available in box format, this Tempranillo cuvée from our long-time friends at Bodegas Tempore is substantially juicy and ripe with balancing brightness and energy that also makes it profoundly food-friendly. Slightly fresher and less opulent than its Garnacha counterpart, this is a grillin’ out or Pizza night dream come true as well as an optimal house-red candidate that won’t wear out its welcome.

Serving Suggestions: Texan boar kabobs from the grill. Pepperoni pizza. Empanadas.

{biodynamic} 70% Grenache, 30% Syrah

INKY RASPBERRY & DATE, VIOLETS & CLOVE, PEPPERY

Biodynamic, buxom, and bodaciously boxed, we have here three liters of awe-inspiring Rhone red. Opening with a wallop of violet blossoms and black raspberry, it masterfully evolves into a savory blend of grilled thyme, clove, and dried dates. The proximity of Vacqueyras to Châteauneuf-du-Pape should also reflect their proximal styles of lush, elegant, structured red wine. Philippe Bertrand is our hero for fitting a wine this substantial into a three liter box! A Wine Authorities exclusive!

Serving Suggestion: Steak au Poivre. Grilled lamb w/ a savory cream sauce, peppercorns, pine nuts, goat cheese, basil, & cranberries.
