New Rare Wines from Dal Forno

In many wine areas throughout the world, there are a handful of individuals or families who make “the” wine for their particular region – winemakers who define the style of the region. When it comes to Valpolicella, the Dal Forno family does just that. For more than 30 years, Dal Forno has been producing deeply concentrated Valpolicella, Amarone and Recioto.

Romano Dal Forno , the current winemaker/owner, took over the farm in 1983. Risking everything, he invested a large amount in 1990 to update the winery and refine Dal Forno’s process.

Henri Bonneau’s Legendary CdP

The 2012 Célestins Arrives Friday


Henri Bonneau is a producer without peer in the Southern Rhône. No other winemaker has produced as many epic bottles in the last 30 years. We’ve just secured a small, 6-bottle parcel of one of his signature bottlings, Célestins, arriving later this week. These bottles offer exceptionally rare opportunities to experience what Jeb Dunnuck describes as “the essence of traditionally made Châteauneuf-du-Pape”.

“[Henri Bonneau’s] Châteauneufs have become legends in their maker’s lifetime, and anyone fortunate enough to try them can attest to the fact that these wines are utterly unique examples of the category, as well as some of the most idiosyncratic wines being made anywhere today.

Cayuse 2018 Bionic Frog

Restocked


Cayuse is one of the most in-demand wineries in North America, and likely needs little in the way of introductions for many of our subscribers. Our allocations always go fast, so we’re always on the hunt for more of these sought-after wines. Perhaps Cayuse’s most coveted wine of all is Bionic Frog. A serious wine with a playful name, it is one of America’s most collectable bottles.
