This wine is from United States, California region, Sonoma County sub-region and Alexander Valley appellation. Marietta Cellars, located just outside of Geyserville in Sonoma County, was founded by owner and winemaker Chris Bilbro in 1978. He named the winery after his great aunt Marietta, an Italian immigrant who took Chris under her wing and taught him how to cook and taste. Her influence on him is reflected in his lifestyle and his wines. To this day, no wine gets bottled without his approval and no vineyard row goes more than a week without Chris riding his ATV through it. He produces wines of incredible consistency, both in quality and price, in relative anonymity. The Bilbro family winemaking tradition is now in its second generation. The majority of day to day operations are handled by Chris’s three eldest sons, Jake, Scot, and Sam, who are all dedicated to the dream that Chris started in 1978. “For over three decades one of the greatest values in dry California red wine has been the nonvintage kitchen sink blend from the Bilbro’s family-owned Marietta Cellars…This wine flies off retailers shelves, so smart consumers take note.'.

This wine is from South Africa, Coastal Region region, Swartland sub-region. The new generation of South African winemakers is promoting indigenous varietals and the quality of their terroir. In particular, Eben Sadie has become both curator and champion for old vines in the Swartland region of South Africa. Although just 40, Eben is one of the regions most experienced winemakers in his 20s, he was hired by Charles Back to start up The Spice Route which he left after founding his eponymous property in 1999.Eben has carved out an enviable reputation for his Columella and Palladius estate bottlings, which are produced from seven leased vineyards which he farms himself. In the cellar Eben lets nature run its course spontaneous natural fermentation uses gravity to transfer his wines from vat to bottle and ages his wines in neutral wood. The reds age in large foudres for 24 months and the whites in barrel for 24 months. The most hands-on aspect to Ebens winemaking is at harvest when he and his team individually sort the hand-picked berries. Ebens patchwork approach to vineyard selection is reflective of his winemaking philosophy find the oldest vines that produce fruit representative of terroir. His 17 acre estate, of which half are bush vines and half trellised, is dry-farmed and planted on the gentle slopes of the region to a variety of soil types ‒ granite, slate, clay, sandstone, gravel and quartz. After almost ten years of making his estate wines, Eben was ready for a new project and in 2009, introduced a bevy of small-production, single-vineyard wines sourced from Swartlands oldest vines. For this lineup, the whites were whole-bunch pressed, fermented in a combination of concrete eggs and large foudres and bottled after 10 months; the reds were bottled after 11 months. Eben keeps the wines sur lie through elevage so that he only has to add sulfur once, just prior to bottling.. The Grenache was sourced from 48 year old vines planted on decomposed granite soils at 2,200 feet.. The wine offers meaty and sanguine notes of savory, pine and black pepper that are wrapped around a core of light red fruit and cherries. There is an edge of graphite and minerality here, along with pretty hints of shiso and black tea. GRENACHE Wine South African Still Wine
This wine is from France, Rhone region, Southern Rhone sub-region and Chateauneuf Du Pape appellation. Chateauneuf-du-Pape is the most prestigious southern Rhone wine. It was here that the appellation controlee system began in 1923, when a group of local winemakers, led by Baron Le Roy, drew up a charter of six stipulations to regulate and safeguard the quality of their table wines. Decades later, the laws of the appellation controlee system remain largly unchanged.The Templiers originally planted vines in the region in the 12th century. Two hundred years later, it was the papacy of Avignon that continued the winemaking tradition. It was the new chateau (chateau neuf) completed by Pope John XXII in 1333 for which the wines of this region and the city itself are named.At its best, Chateauneuf-du-Pape is a broad, generous, sinewy wine showing a range of dark, fruity flavors. The wines derive their uniqueness from several sources. The round red and cream-colored stones and galets, left by ancient Alpine glaciers, absorb heat throughout the day and then reflect it onto the vines during the cool nights. As a result, the grapes reach maximum maturity. Furthermore, the vines here benefit from the cleansing winds of the mistral, which keep them dry and free of undesirable diseases.Grenache accounts for 60% of the vines planted here, but because it can be unbalanced on its own, another 12 varietals (including five white ones) are permitted for use in making red wines. Chateuneuf-du-Pape white represents only 5% of the total appelation and is also a blend of up to six varietals. Yields are limited to 2.59 tons per acre..
