California Classics & Fall Wine Blitz


In a lot of ways California is a privileged place to make wine. European wine regions benefit from legal protection that help with promotion to consumers, but they also suffer from regulation which can stifle creativity. For instance, other than one notable exception (St. Bris in the North), you will never find Sauvignon Blanc planted in Burgundy. There are, of course, historical and cultural reasons why this is not done, but the question remains: what if? In California we can pretty much plant whatever we want, wherever we want. There is a lot of information available to planters about which kinds of grapes might work better in which places, but in the end it’s up to him or her to decide.

The early planters of wine grapes in California, many of whom were immigrants from wine regions in Europe, understood that in order to grow the grapes they knew from home they would need a similar climate. However, the California wine industry has also long been dominated by consumer taste and not necessarily by what actually grows best. As an example, Riesling in the 1960s was much more popular and ended up being planted in some unlikely spots. These can sometimes still make incredible wine. For a real time warp, get your hands on a bottle of Stony Hill White Riesling from Spring Mountain in Napa. Some of their vines date back from this era and the wine hasn’t changed in style since it was first made – delicious.

All of this is to say that since the “modern” winemaking era began in California – either in 1966 when Robert Mondavi founded the first new winery in California since prohibition, or in 1976 when California wines beat the best wines of France in a blind tasting – we have learned a lot about our own terroir; yet, we are still learning more every day. Robert Mondavi himself was the first to make Sauvignon Blanc famous in Napa (he called it
Fumé Blanc), and we have really only scratched the surface in terms of potential for Chardonnay in Santa Barbara County. Of course, we have long known that Zinfandel and California were made for each other, although we did forget for a while.

I always try to come to every glass with an open mind. Of course a label can tell us a lot, but it can’t compare to the sensation of your nose in the glass and the wine on your palate. Cheers!

Farella Sauvignon Blanc Coombsville Napa, CA 2014 Farella
Regular Price $16.99 Blitz price $13.59
The Farella Sauvignon Blanc strikes a great balance between crunchy green melon and ripe guava flavors. Medium-bodied, with good minerality, and a bright long finish. Try it with your favorite fresh cheese, especially an Andante goat’s milk disk!

Ojai Chardonnay “Puerta del Mar” Santa Rita Hills Santa Barbara, CA 2013
Regular $29.99 Blitz Price $23.99
Puerta del Mar is one of the coolest vineyard sites in California and produces a Chardonnay that really stuns. In the hands of California viticultural legend Adam Tolmach the site shines. Bright, clear, and crisp with just a kiss of oak, it turns the notion of “California Chardonnay” on its head.

Regular Price $21.99 Blitz Price $17.59
When Pam and Jay Heminway planted their vineyard in the remote Chiles Canyon to Zin in Napa, Zin was well-established, but on the verge of being overtaken in most other places by the victorious Cabernet Sauvignon. They could have ripped up their vines and replanted but instead stuck to their guns and still make some of the best Zin around. Fruit forward and jammy with tons of texture, but unmarred by the excesses of new oak. Your fall dinner’s best friend.

WineBlitzLogoReady to get Blitzed? Once again we’ll be offering 20% off the purchase of 12 bottles or more mix and match throughout the selection.

Offbeat Italian Varietals


It’s estimated that Italy has over 350 varieties of grapes in common usage. The grapes that we think of as “mainstream” are the ones that constitute wines from regions that have made it on the world stage. Sangiovese from Chianti, Nebbiolo from Barolo and Barbaresco, and Aglianico from Taurasi in the South come to mind. So when we talk about “offbeat” Italian grapes we are talking about regional wines that, for most of the country, are the daily tipple. Not so long ago (in the ’70s), Italian wine was not mainstream at all. Your smart American oenophile drank Bordeaux and sometimes Burgundy and in the Bay Area Kermit Lynch was turning people on to the Rhone Valley, but great Italian wine was not easy to find. So if today’s offbeat is tomorrow’s mainstream, then I’ll be happy to contribute. Cheers! To never drinking the same thing twice, unless it’s really good (my unofficial motto)!

Being the knowledgeable wine drinkers that you are, many of you will already be familiar with some or all of these grapes, but let’s dive right in. Verdicchio is a grape native to the Marche on the Adriatic coast and has two major producing regions. Castelli di Jesi often produces fuller, riper versions, while Matelica is all ocean breeze, lime leaf with a bright fresh finish. As an aside, our friends at Unti Vineyards just released the very first (documented) Verdicchio made in California. Next time you’re up in Healdsburg go visit – they are the friendliest people in wine country.

Monica is a grape planted in Sardinia and almost nowhere else in the world, although it apparently originated in Spain. It can produce wines that vary from medium-bodied and fruit-forward to powerful and spicy, and the best examples of the former style pair amazingly with hearty seafood stews…which makes me think of one of my favorite restaurants in SF, La Ciccia in Noe Valley. Fabulous Sardinian cuisine and a deep, focused wine list sourced almost exclusively from the island.

Finally, Valpolicella is not really a grape at all. It’s an appellation in the Veneto in Northeastern Italy and is a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and sometimes Molinara. It can vary greatly in style, but for us the best are fruit-forward, bright, and juicy with hints of licorice and brandied cherry. Now I’ve been transported to Pizzeria Delfina and I’m about to bite into a slice of their funghi pie…wow that was intense.

Offbeat grape varieties. When they come on a boat to us they seem exotic and when we share them with friends there is always a fun story to go along with the new flavors. It’s important to remember that wine is wine and it’s meant to be imbibed and shared with people you love; and when you get the chance, meet the people who made it.Monica

La Staffa Verdicchio di Castelli di Jesi Marche, Italy 2013 | $19.99

Not the usual Castelli di Jesi style Verdicchio, the La Staffa version is quite vibrant, direct, flavorful, complex, and delicious. At only 24 years of age, owner and enologist Ricardo Baldi is fast becoming one of the top producers of the region.

ValpolicellaPala Monica di Sardegna I Fiori DOC Sardinia, Italy 2012 | $17.99
Under the guidance of Mario Pala, this family run winery combines modern techniques with the eye on traditional expression. Very aromatic with violet notes and hints of licorice. Great as a starter wine, it’s delicdoius with white meats and goat cheeses.

Massimago Valpolicella DOC Veneto, Italy 2013 | $14.99
Started by young winemaker Camilla Rossi Chauvenent, Massimago Valpolicella is a classic example of this style. Aromas of ripe strawberries and cherries with hints of balsamic. We love this with salumi and cheeses.

WineBlitzLogoWith the Fall Wine Blitz fast approaching, from November 2-8, you can get these Italian wines plus ANY of the wines on the shelf at 20% off when you buy 12 bottles or more. Also, come taste these wines at our Blitz Preview tasting on Wednesday October 28th. You can get tickets at 18 Reasons. Hurry, the tickets are going fast!

White Burgundies

How many times a week do I hear the words “I don’t like Chardonnay”? Each time it cuts me to the quick, since this grape can make wines that are utterly sublime. But in a lot of ways, Chardonnayhas been the agent of her own undoing. She was admired and accepted worldwide because she is a chameleon. She thrives in so many different terroirs and is delicious in so many different styles that, “Anything But Chardonnay”-ers notwithstanding, there is a Chardonnay for every wine drinker on this planet. In order to understand her soul we have to go back to the beginning, to Burgundy.

primary_9ffa77ea-5083-483f-8c50-ee50c00fe691Burgundy is a region that extends from Chablis in the North to the Macon in the South, and encompasses some of the most hallowed white wine vineyards in the world. The Kimmeridgian limestone in Chablis gives their Chardonnays a rocky backbone, and the cooler climate lends an acidity that doesn’t stop. On the Cote de Beaune, a gentle Eastern facing slope provides for perfect ripeness and the wines are richer and more generous (this is where many California Chardonnay producers take inspiration). In the Macon we encounter producers reaching for a creamier, simpler style, although many claim that this region hasn’t yet reached its full potential.

These styles are so different that you would be hard pressed to name them as the same grape, but there you have it. I told you she was a chameleon; and yet (almost) always welcome. We love Chardonnay that pursues balance. Balance between acidity, texture, fruit and integrated oak. Most importantly, we love Chardonnay that pairs well at the table. If you haven’t dived deep into her golden-hued glass, friend, there is a treasure waiting for you.Bourgogne Blanc

Try these amazing Chardonnay now, and stock up during our Wine Blitz. Once again we’ll be offering 20% off the purchase of 12 bottles or more mix and match throughout the selection. The dates are November 2-8 for the Fall Blitz andDecember 7-13 for the Winter Blitz. Start planning now! In our next email we’ll be featuring some of our favorite Blitz wines and also telling you about the Blitz preview tastings at 18 Reasons. Stay tuned!

Herve Azo Chablis Burgundy, France 2013 | 
In the late 1970’s, Hervé Azo, originally from Brittany, took some time off from his fast-paced white collar job in the Parisian advertising business to pick grapes in Chablis during the harvest.  He never returned to his job.  After falling in love with the region, he began to look for vineyards, which at the time had not reached the astronomical value they have today.  Now he has an estate of approximately 12 hectares (26.5 acres),9 hectares of which are located in the premier cru slopes around the village of Milly.  Azo’s Chablis is aged exclusively in stainless steel vats to retain the classic mineral quatlities that the Chardonnay attains in Chablis. Yeasty and minerally with bright citrus notes. This is fantastic with oysters or shellfish dishes.

Talk about fine terroir and prime real estate: this 100% Chardonnay hails from Uchizy
 (population 800!), one of only 26 villages with the right to append the village name on the label. This vineyard is nestled just west of the Saone River, a very short distance from Viré and Clessé, two other notable villages for venerable Chardonnay in the Maconnais. The soils on this east-facing, gentle slope are comprised of limestone and clay, with ample rock debris providing superior drainage. The organically-farmed vines, averaging 32 years age, are tended by Mathieu’s longtime friend Jean-Michel, and are severely pruned to limit yields, hand-picked, and reflect a completely natural terroir – no spraying or artificial anything. The fruit is bladder pressed into 100% steel to retain freshness and youth. The bouquet is open and generous, with quartz, minerals, baskets of Meyer lemons, and white flowers. The palate is fresh, alive and pure Chardonnay through-and-through.

Domaine Dussort is a small family domaine based in the Cote d’Or, in the village of Meursault.  Sylvain Dussort took over 20 years ago, and started farming the estate’s 30 acres with minimal intervention in order to let the vines express the true character of each vineyard site. This “Cuvee des Ormes” is sourced from 50-year-old vines right below Meursault from two vineyards, En l’Ormeau and Les Pellans. Extended lees contact imparts richness to the wine and along with the old vines, this wine could easily pass for a Meursault, at half the price.

Where the Buffalo Roam

BiRite-HOLIDAY-2015-Grocery-051The Buffalo Trace Distillery is one of the biggest names in bourbon distilling. The distillery itself has had many names over the years, and records indicate that the site has been used for distilling since 1775, making it one of the oldest continuously operating distilleries in the United States.  Buffalo Trace was also awarded the most innovative American whiskey distillery in the world this year. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? They won for their commitment to experimentation and for their fantastic special releases, which surprise and delight whiskey devotees year after year. The excellence doesn’t stop at the super premium brands. Another fun fact: they only use corn that is GMO-free and they are in the process of becoming completely free of GMOs. One of our favorite tipples is the eponymous entry level Buffalo Trace Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

Bourbon whiskey is a true American invention: the mash bill has to be at least 51% corn (Buffalo Trace uses only non-GMO) and the rest is usually a combination of rye, malted barley, or wheat. After distillation the whiskey is aged in new charred American oak barrels for a number of years. Although Buffalo Trace doesn’t carry an age statement, it is estimated that the average bottle age is at least eight years. Because the whiskeys are aged in barrels that are each slightly different and located in different parts of the rickhouse, they mature differently. In order to achieve the same flavor profile year after year the distillery blends barrels carefully from different parts of the rickhouse. Thus, each batch is a carefully composed constellation of flavor, aroma, and texture created by the blenders.

BiRite-HOLIDAY-2015-Grocery-053It is precisely this tradition of blending that makes the alternate practice of bottling single barrels so special. Distillers taste each barrel often to check in on its development, and when they find a barrel that seems to have a story to tell on its own it is set aside. After tasting through a couple of samples our buyer, Trac, chose two barrels to bottle as our Bi-Rite Single Barrel Buffalo Trace Whiskey ($29.99). Barrel number one is in the store now and barrel number two should hit the shelves in the fall. Make sure to try both to taste the subtle differences!

How do the single barrels differ from the regular bottling of Buffalo Trace? The normal bottling is rounder and softer, more fruit forward and vanilla, while our single barrels are more precise and flavorful. Clove, banana and grain-forward, it is perfect for a Manhattan, but also great as a sipper. Only Trac has tasted barrel number two yet – we’ll make sure to let you know when it hits the shelves so we can celebrate together.

Now, back to the subject of wine, the most exciting time of the year is coming up! That’s right, Wine Blitz! Once again we’ll be offering 20% off the purchase of 12 bottles or more mix and match throughout the selection. The dates areNovember 2-8 for the Fall Blitz and December 7-13 for the Winter Blitz. Start planning now! In this email we’ll be featuring some of our favorite Blitz wines and also telling you about the Blitz preview tastings at 18 Reasons, so be sure to stay tuned!

We think these white wines are perfect for any fall fare – all medium-bodied with great texture and acidity to stand up to the gamut of holiday food in the near future. And all of these wines are limited and won’t be available much past our November Blitz; be sure to grab them while you can!

2012 La Fenetre À Côté Pinot Gris  –  $17.99acote

Winemaker Joshua Klapper started his journey into the wine world at the age of just 19. Straight out of high school, he started working in restaurants and found himself as one of the youngest servers at the iconic Cafe Boulud in Manhattan. Working there, he had the opportunity to try some of the best wines from around the world, which inspired him to pursue wine-making on his own. He moved to California in 2005, and today sources fruit from high-quality and sought-after vineyards throughout the Central Coast. His Pinot Gris is inspired by the Pinot Gris of Alsace. Its texture is unctuous and reminiscent of beeswax with lovely tropical, apple, and honeysuckle notes. Perfect with our Bourbon Sweet Potato Mash!

confrerie2010 Domaine de la Confrérie Haut-Cotes de Beaune Blanc  –  $17.99

One of the newer producers in Burgundy, Domaine de la Confrérie was founded in 1991 by winemaker Christophe Pauchard. Christophe has just 10 hectares of vineyards in the small hamlet of Cirey. He’s dedicated to extreme care in the vineyards and is meticulous about the quality of his grapes. His Haut-Cotes de Beaune Blanc tastes pricier than it is! Fresh aromas of white flowers and honey lead to a long and elegant finish with notes of apple and pear. Try this with our Butternut Squash and Apple Soup!

2011 Thibaud Boudignon Anjou Blanc  –  $29.99thibaud

You know a winemaker is passionate about his craft when he has a side job as a winemaker from his day job as a winemaker. Thibaud Boudignon’s day job is with Domaine Soucherie, whose stellar reputation he has helped craft from the vineyard to the bottle. But on the side, Thibaud’s passion lies in his small, 2-hectare, organically-farmed vineyard of Chenin Blanc vines in Savennières. He is meticulous in the vineyard, minimalist in the winemaking process, and uses a combination of French oak and Austrian oak barrels. His Chenin Blanc has intoxicating quince, saline, and floral aromas with a lush texture and great minerally depth. It’s the perfect Thanksgiving Day white!

November Wine Blitz at Bi-Rite 18th Street!

wine blitzWe can’t believe it’s already time for our November Wine Blitz at 18th Street! We’ve been doing a fair bit of wine-hoarding and are stoked with the selection we have in store for the two upcoming Holiday Wine Blitzes. The first Blitz kicks off on Monday, November 11th and runs through Sunday, November 17th. If you’ve never participated in one of our Wine Blitzes before, here’s how it works: at our 18th St. location only, during the above-mentioned dates, you’ll get 20% off any 12 or more bottles of wine, mixed and matched however you like! Worried about carrying that wine home? We’re also offering free deliveries within San Francisco for Wine Blitz purchases. We’ve timed this sale perfectly to allow you to stock up on everything you’ll need for the approaching Holiday Season – especially Thanksgiving and Hanukkah.

Can’t make it during that week? Worried about crowds? We love pre-orders! Come by the store, shoot us an email or give us a ring before Wine Blitz starts and let us know what you’re looking for. We’re happy to pick out wines for you, apply the 20% discount during the week of Blitz, and set them aside for pick-up or delivery. And don’t forget to come to the Preview Tasting tomorrow, November 7th from 6 to 8 PM at 18 Reasons, where you can sample 30+ wines and get started writing your own Blitz Wish List. 

The wines below are just a few of many that we’re excited to feature for the November Wine Blitz. They’re all reds that are perfect for your Thanksgiving dinner. And yes, the classic pairing for turkey is Pinot Noir, but we like to think outside the bottle and pair our poultry with something different. All of these are limited and probably won’t be available much past our November Blitz, so be sure to add them to your Blitz List!

madeleine2011 Madeleine ‘Maddie’ Vin de Table  –  $16.99

Damien Georis discovered his passion for wines when he was a young boy living in Belgium and an old family friend, Madeleine, gave him his first sip of wine. This sip inspired Damien’s career as winemaker, and he later went on to study enology at Bordeaux University. He found additional inspiration in the Loire Valley and its signature grape, Cabernet Franc. Damien moved to California in 2005, determined to create a wine that would best express this elegant and refined varietal. ‘Maddie’ is his entry-level, everyday sipping wine, named for his wine muse. A blend of 75% Cabernet Franc and 25% Syrah, this wine is fresh, vibrant, juicy and filled with aromas of herbs and pepper.

2012 Franz Gojer St. Magdalener Classico  –  $22.99gojer

Franz Gojer is a master of Shiava and Lagrein, two native grapes of the Alto Adige. His Glogglhof vineyard at the heart of St. Magdalener produces some of the top wines from Alto Adige. The St. Magdalener Classico is blend of 95% Shiava and 5% Lagrein and is the perfect balance between elegance and power. We get aromas of violets and cherries along with a soft, velvety texture and round tannins. We love this with a traditional speck from this region of northern Italy, but it’s also a perfect pairing for your Thanksgiving meal.

dupasuier2010 Domaine Dupasquier Gamay  –  $19.99

It’s no secret we love Gamay at Bi-Rite! It’s our alternative to pricey Pinot Noir and is a very versatile and food-friendly grape! We’re always trying to source Gamay from different regions, especially since the grape can be very transparent and expresses terroir extremely well. One of our favorite Gamay producers is David Dupasquier. He has dramatic and picturesque vineyards in Savoie, high up near the Alps. Dupasquier’s Gamay is clean, high-toned, and minerally; it speaks of both the place and varietal from whence it comces. This is one of those limited wines that sells out fast, so don’t get caught buying just one bottle!
