Welcome back to the Hamptons! Wine season 2012 is ready to kick off in style. Check out our selection of roses, whites and perfect wines and spirits for summer entertaining.
This season we’ll present Friends and Family with a selection of wines that express the character of the place we share and the dynamism in the local winemaking community. Watch for special in-store winemaker events and tastings. This week, we have a conversation with, and new releases from, Channing Daughters’s Christopher Tracy.
Red Hook Winery, Long Island wines that defy your expectations, that reflect the varietals and climate of our region but that have something different: a new perspective. We’re delighted to offer a chance to sample two recent releases, one each from Robert Foley and Abe Schoener, at a special Friends and Family price.
There are few families with deeper roots in Long Island’s wine community than the Massouds of Paumanok Vineyards. We get perspective on the 2010 vintage and Chenin Blanc from head winemaker Kareem Massoud.
Our spirited celebration journeys from the Scottish heaths to the Emerald Isle — and we have a rare Irish whiskey, a small release sold out everywhere, that was just proclaimed the “Worldwide Whiskey of the Year” to share with those who act quickly.
A grape that performs a minor role in French blends from Cahors and Bordeaux, Malbec flourished in the high, dry altitude of Mendoza in Argentina. But the French influence on Argentine winemaking extends far beyond being the original source of Malbec. We have two Mendoza Malbec-based blends created by winemakers with deep family traditions at renowned Bordeaux estates.
No spirit inspires more mythology than Absinthe, the legendary stimulant and refreshment of La Boheme-era Paris. The real spirit behind the legend has been obscured by the hype – and phony Absinthes – that followed its re-introduction in the U.S. We have a traditionally-made Absinthe.
