Always delicious and at a nice price, here are the wines we’re featuring for August:
Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand
Twelfth NIght is owned by our friends Arie and Beth Ann Dahan, a local couple who lives behind the store in Davis Square. While visiting New Zealand they fell in love with the country, people and wine, so they did whatever anyone would do and decided to buy a vineyard. On the 12th night of a visit looking for a good vineyard site they found themselves at the astronomical observation on Mount John. They were in awe by the stunning view of the entire milky way. The next day, they found their Central Otago vineyard with its own spectacular views and Twelfth Night Wines was born.

Fume Blanc, California
Ferrari Carano was started by husband and wife team Don and Rhonda Carano in 1981. They owned a hotel in Reno, Nevada and were on a mission to enhance their wine list. They bought the 60-acre property in 1979 and were excited to learn how to grow grapes and make wine. They took a few enology classes at U.C. Davis and started making wines for friend, family, and at their hotel. After seeing the success they were having, they bought more vinyard lands and Ferrari Carano was born. In the words of Don Carano, “The bottom line is quality without compromise. This is a commitment we feel is reflected in every bottle of our wine.”

Commanderie de la Bargemone
Commanderie de la Bargemone is one of the top estates in the Coteaux d’Aix, a small, fine wine district within Provence. The 160 acres estate was founded by Templar Knights in the 13th century. The estate was named “Bargemone” after the wealthy Provencal family that owned it for 200 years. It finally passed from their hands in the 1800’s, with the vineyards finally succumbing to phylloxera, ending a proud 800-year tradition of winemaking. Luckily, a French industrialist, Jean-Pierre Rozan, purchased the property in 1973, restored the Commanderie, replanted the vineyards, and brought the estate back to its former glory.

Red Blend, Italy
A blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and sangiovese, it is extremely easy drinking. Ruby-red color with ripe red fruit and violet aromas. Lively and easy going with juicy cherry and red currant flavors balanced by bright acidity. This is the ideal end-of-summer party wine. Perfect with any grilled meats, especially hamburgers off the grill.
