Featured Wines: 7/24 Wine Tasting
We are returning to the famous Rhone Valley this week, to try three amazing French wines. These wines grow in a territory called Costieres de Nimes, which is the Southwestern most part of the Rhone Valley, giving each of them a light, Mediterranean flare. The grapes are grown in sandy deposits and red shale, handpicked by good, honest farmers, and fermented in steel with natural yeast. These bottles will remind you of the magic of French wine and pair exquisitely with food!
Virtual Tasting: Friday 7/24 at 4pm (MT)

Maz Caz Blanc Rhone Valley, France
Tropical and balanced is the best way to describe this blend of Grenache blanc and Roussane. A dry but fruity wine, with a nose of tree fruits and a palate rich in citrus and floral flavors. You'll find apple, peach, grapefruit, and jasmine all harmoniously present.
Suggested pairing: Mussels or Chicken Cordon Bleu
Maz Caz Rose Rhone Valley, France
This rose tends to be hard to find, but we love it! It blends Grenache and Syrah for a very dry and bold wine. The nose is heavy on the red fruits, but the palate is a blend of blackberry, strawberry, and cherry.
Suggested pairing: Garlic Pork Loin or Mandarin Orange Salad
Maz Caz Rouge Rhone Valley, France
This blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre is on the lighter side for French reds. A dry wine with a smokey nose, it has flavors of plum and other dark fruits,with soft notes of coffee. Very smooth and easy drinking.
Suggested pairing: Carpaccio or Turkey Burgers
You can join us Friday 7/24 at 4:00pm Mountain Time on Zoom to try these wines and meet the wine maker, Michele D'Aprix.
