Discover a World of Artisan Wines
We are pleased to introduce something new to our readers – access to limited-release artisan wines from boutique wineries.
Through My Cru, a premier online club for wine lover’s which offers access to artisan wines & epicurean adventures, our readers will be able to access fine wines not available to the general public.
Many of these wines are handcrafted by vintners in love with the art of fine wine making – but are not interested in having to produce large quantities to accommodate the masses. They prefer, rather, to keep their wine production small and exclusive.
Among them, Cindy Cosco, a vintner from California wine country. Cindy’s unoaked Chardonnay, Passaggio, is her pride and joy. And with good reason. This delicious, refreshing Chardonnay, which is produced in stainless drums, is crisp, light and refreshing. Its subtle floral and fruit notes make it perfect for summer wine drinking or as an accompaniment to chicken, pork and seafood dishes. Pair it with grilled shrimp and veggies right off the ‘barbie;’ I did! Delicious! Or try it with grilled salmon; superb!
Love reds? I do!
From winemaker Bridget Raymond, Courtesan, an Oakville, Napa Valley Cabernet.
This small-lot wine is produced in only about 200 cases, after being aged for 30 months in French oak. This wine is made in the modern style with appealing notes of blackberry, black currant, dark chocolate and sweet oak.
Simply put… it is a beautiful wine. But you’ll be thinking “c’est magnifique!”
Pair it with a nice thick-cut grilled steak, red sauce pasta dishes, hearty meats, stews… and even pizza!
Grab before it’s gone!
