I don’t make wine…
(I seek out beautiful examples of winemaking)
Beautiful wines are commonly sold off when wineries exceed their production targets, and that’s where I come in. I buy these wines (if they meet my quality expectations) and bottle them for your drinking pleasure. Whether they’re from large, well known brands or tiny, obscure “garage” wineries, I only source examples with character, balance, and finesse.
“Will you like my wines?” The answer lies in your tastebuds and how they relate to mine.
What are my taste buds like?
◊ I seek balance in wine.
◊ I seek concentration, but not at the expense of finesse.
◊ I seek fruit flavors, but not without minerality, malo, or wood
to keep them in check.
Essentially, if you like European wines as well as New World styles, settle in, you’ll have a similar palate.
I see the merit of many different styles, each one having an appropriate time and place, and I’ll point out my thoughts on this for each wine you’ll find here; some wines are great for the couch and a magazine, some need food, some are best when consumed with a cool fall breeze. It just depends.
Sit back, cruise the selections on offer, and pick out a few to try out.
TRY THE WINES
David McCluskey – Owner
As a professional chef and sommelier, my world revolves around the kitchen table. I’m an outspoken advocate of slowfood, spending time with loved ones, and generally living with the french phrase “joie de vivre” in mind. To me, delicious meals and bottles of wine are meant to be shared, and it’s those experiences that bring us real fulfillment.
If, like me, you’re a lover of all things delicious, give the wines a try. I think you’ll find them well put together and a refreshing change from the typical.
