2019 Outersounds: Sauvignon Blanc
A lively New Zealand Sauv Blanc! Lemon, grapefruit, tropical fruit and Lots of minerality. Porch-worthy? YUP
2019 Broadbent: Dao Branco
A blend of Encruzado, Malvasia Fina, Bical, and Gouveio from Portugal. Aromas of fresh lemon, lime, orange zest, green apple, fresh white peach, a lemon verbena and tarragon herbal note along with orange oil, white spring blossoms, and hay. On the palate, the wine is dry and medium-bodied with refreshing acidity and a mouthwatering, citrus- driven finish.
NV La Collina: Lambrusco Malvasia
These are your bubbles for brunch on the porch! Gorgeous golden hue, sort of earthy, peachy, nom nom with a brioche finish.
2019 Alta Alella: Pansa Blanca "PB"
100% Pansa Blanca (Xarel-lo) Intense floral aromas of apple and pear with hints of green almond, fennel and ripe lemon. Voluminous with a sweetish entry, flavors of apple and pear with clean salinity. Incredibly fresh. A glass of this in one hand, dead-heading your porch plants with the other hand.

Sleek label, oooo lala. This is a Cab Franc rose that's floral & mineral driven. White flowers, strawberry, raspberry, grapefruit zest. Small & fine bubbles.
2019 Sans Liege: Groundwork Counoise
This juicy bb is here again for some more lovin'. I love this producer's choice of descriptors for this great wine, "agua de jamaica, young violets, rhubarb, white pepper, plum skin, cranberry cocktail"... I'll take that vacation, yes please! I will be drinking this chilled while I sit on my porch as soon as this wind stops blowing.
2019 Dupre: Beaujolais Villages "Glou Glou Gamay"
A chillable red to chill with. I think this can go porch to spring dinner table seamlessly. Might need more then one bottle though. Unpretentionous, chuggable, great quality beaujolais.
2019 Reine de la Ville: Île de Beauté Pinot Noir
This bottle is from Corsica, a French island off the southern coast of France, it's basically in the armpit of Italy and France- very beautiful and mediterranean. Just google it now. Anyway, wines from here are always a joy to drink. The soil, the proximity to the sea, and the sunshine all contribute to making these complex and enjoyable wines. See you there?
2017 Vinha d Malhada: Tinto
Another wine from Portugal, this is a blend from the south and its interesting- good salinity, cherry/blueberry notes and earth funk. I'd open this when everyone is sitting on the porch stairs, already feeling good and buzzed, and someone pulls out a guitar to serenade everyone- it's like, kinda cool but also a little weird but when the mood strikes everyone drinks it up.
2015 Mayu: Carmenere-Syrah
They named the vinyard Mayu after the incan term for the idea of a galaxy. They did this because it is said that this region of Chile has the clearest atmosphere for viewing the stars, hence the observation tower and starry sky on their label. Drink this on the porch and look up.
2018 The Omen: Red Blend
Mostly Zinfandel then some Syrah, a lil Barbera, and a lil Petite Syrah. THIS is your Burger Wine.
