This fresh, zingy Chardonnay from our friends Mikey and Gina Giugni was made exclusively for Dedalus. It’s a killer California Chardonnay that expertly channels the oceanic influences of San Luis Obispo. Notes of citrus zest, squeezed lemon, wet stone, apricot, and stone fruits.
Our first ever exclusive Australian wine. Skilly is Australia in a bottle with the rich purple berry notes of the native lilly pilly and the menthol herby tones of the Dorrigo pepperleaf. It comes from the historic Quelltaler vineyard, planted in 1858, and was made just for Dedalus by Seppeltsfield, one of the most historic estates in all of Australia.
Guy Breton ’s cuvee “Marylou” is named for his daughter. The Gamay in this Beaujolais Villages is sourced from 45-year-old vines in Saint Joseph and surrounding subzones laden with granite and rocky soils - resulting in a wine that is filled with juicy red fruits, notes of violet, and profound minerality. Enjoy Cool!
Succulent sardine tails, locally caught, are grilled over live fires stoked with holm oak, birch, and eucalyptus woods. Generously spiced and packed in 100% Arbequina olive oil and cider vinegar, these special tins are a rare find.
This light, spunky red is one of the most exciting summer arrivals year in and year out. Made from Grolleau, a rare native grape to the region, it is mineral-driven and snappy like a great Cab Franc with so much more drinkability. Think black pepper, bright cranberry, and agave. Drink cool.
Local fisherman hand-harvest razor clams to ensure the freshest, juiciest catch; the clams are then grilled over fires of birch and beech and neatly packed in tins of pure olive oil for the ultimate conserva experience.
The talented winemakers at Presqu’ile Winery in Santa Barbara produced and bottled this perfectly balanced Chardonnay exclusively for Dedalus customers. The ideal vineyard location and mastery of the Murphy family combine forces to create a total knockout with notes of pear, sea-salty air, apple, and toast.
Peter and Michael Ebert are having fun in the Nahe region of German. Michael studied with cult winemaker Klaus Keller, known for his powerful Riesling and sustainable farming. Now, the brothers are taking that minimal intervention farming and winemaking approach, but applying it to new styles and different varieties. They farm the Pinot Noir and Regent in this sparkling rosé on the steep slopes of the village of Weiler. Look for notes of wild cranberry and cherry blossom.
The official appellation at the domaine is Bourgogne AOC, but the Domaine de la Cras is the sole producer allowed to use the designation Coteaux de Dijon. Winemaker Marc Soyard was chosen for his affinity towards hands-off winemaking and ability to make incredible complex, mineral-driven wines.
