Imagine yourself, sitting around a table, zooming your loved ones while “sharing a meal” and desperately wishing you could just be near those you hold dear. The one indulgence in this dumpster fire of a year is the glass of wine swirling in your hand, soothing your anxiety while making every moment spent away from your nearest and dearest a little more bearable. Each bottle of wine has been selected for it’s uniqueness and it’s ability to connect you to far off lands while also pairing perfectly with nearly any dish you want to throw down on the table.

Andreas Engelmann, the proprietor, viticulturist and winemaker of Scholssgut Ebringem draws on many years of experience, creating wonderfully thought-provoking wine in the Markgräflerland region in Baden, Germany. Hand harvested Pinot Noir is fermented in stainless steel before second fermentation in bottle, creating rich toasty notes contrasted against ripe red berry and finishing with long, mineral finish.
2019 Fritz Kupelwieser, Trentino Alto Adige, Italy
The Fritz Kupelwieser winery was founded over a century ago and has been passed down through the generations.

Flavours of pear and lemon zest are complimented by intense minerality and a remarkable weight, a truly quaffable bottle that will forever change your perception of this oft underestimated varietal.
