Come fly with us. Come fly, lets fly away. We will splash down in France with a new rose from an old favorite and a wild grape called Colombard that makes a lovely blanc. Then we are approved for a fly-by of an Austrian Grüner Veltliner. Then we do some red (eye) flights into Italy’s Piedmont and Tuscan Regions. Pack your bags and let’s Fly!

Holzer, Gruner Veltliner, Wagram Austria $14
Just northwest of Vienna is Wagram, where winemaker Arnold Holzer and his brother Mathias are the fourth generation to run this family owned winery. This wine has a crisp green apple aroma, followed by big bold flavors of ripe green apples and nectarine. Gruner is known to be a little salty and a great wine for spicy foods and hearty green vegetables.
Barrachi, O’lilo Tuscany Italy $19
The latest release of the fantastic Baracchi O’Lillo Super Tuscan has arrived. The latest release of this red blend is another stunning wine. This creative blend showcases layers of perfectly ripened dark fruit flavors including currant, blackberry and black cherry. The rich fruit of this full-bodied Super Tuscan hits all the right notes.
Cantina de Pino, Barbera D’Alba, Piednmont Italy $25
Barbera D’Alba is a wonderfully fragrant offering with notes of crushed flowers, spices and raspberries framed by refined, silky tannins. In this vintage it is a smaller-scaled wine than is usually the case, yet this Barbera offers plenty of enjoyment in an elegant, restrained style
