Gregoletto, founded in 1600 (yup), has been crafting delicious, rustic Prosecco for a long time. Bottled using the traditional sui lieviti method, a secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle, producing the classic, crisp Prosecco bubbles. This classically tasty Prosecco is a worthy pizza night companion.
Domaine Estelle Sauvion has been making some of the best Muscadet for years now. Since becoming certified organic in 1996 and using a unique approach of aging the wine in large ‘foudres’ (oak barrels) they are making Muscadet that really delivers a unique experience. Pair with oysters.
Many things have been made of Lambrusco over the years, but one thing’s for sure–a well made version is virtually unbeatable on the table. Porchetta? Burgers? Pizza? Bring ‘em on. Saliceto is committed to producing thirst-quenching expressions of Lambrusco using only natural methods. Chill down and glou away.
This Prosecco is light and refreshing, boasting classic notes of fresh citrus, tart tropical fruits, green apples, and plenty of minerality. Thanks to the Piave River, the mircroclimate here in Treviso is perfect for ripening Glera, and the proof is in the glass.
Our friends over at Sommariva have a real knack for pumping out quality Italian bubbles at a serious discount. Made from primarily Rabaso, a native Italian varietal rich in acidity, this bubbly exhibits ripe fruit notes alongside chalk minerality, all in perfect balance. Pairing this one with a triple cream cheese is a no-brainer.
When we think “old World Chardonnay” our minds immediately head to Burgundy, but this Piemontese Chardonnay is a close second! The high altitude of these vines brings lightness, brightness, and freshness to this mineral-driven expression of Chardonnay.
Seriously dedicated to organic farming, the team at La Spinee is working toward restoring the terroir of the Veneto. Piave may be better known for a cheese by the same name, but this Cabernet Sauvignon could be the new headliner. It’s big, bold, and deserves to be paired with grilled meats.
Nicole Chanrion inherited her family’s estate at a time when few believed that women could make great wine. Yet, she persisted in making one of the best, most traditional Côte de Brouilly’s according to natural methods of winemaking. Her gloriously grapey Brouilly remains a killer value. Stock up and enjoy!

Dolcetto is often relegated to second–or even third–fiddle in the realm of great Piedmontese reds. Yet–a really sublime Dolcetto paired up with the ideal cuisine can surely outshine far more sophisticated wines. That is certainly the case in the cellars of Guido Porro. A humble winemaker with a lineup as sharp as they come, you won't find more value in approachable Italian reds anywhere else in the country. This release of his Dolcetto is particularly delicious, begging to be paired up with your favorite pizza pie.

We can barely restrain our excitement for this brand new wine from the best value producer in all of Italy. All of Elvio Tintero’s wines are spot on, delicious, and cheap! Delicious, classic Nebbiolo for 13 bucks? How can you beat it? With some fresh pasta, that’s how.
Inspired by the Miles Davis album, Silent Way, winemaker Matt Harrop tries to channel that same ingenuity, inventiveness, and precision in his winemaking. They believe hard work, love, and friendship are the keys to nurturing the vineyards and creating delicious wines.
Nestled between Savoie, the Jura, Burgundy, and the Rhône, this small yet mighty appellation is one to explore.
