The mass commercialization of the wine industry threatens to impose homogenized taste and restricted selection on the unsuspecting wine drinker. In contrast, our intention is to offer a selection of wines that reflect a sense of place. Wines that are authentic, individualistic, and distinctive. Wines that reflect the character and passion of the winemaker.

We believe that smaller wineries, estate-oriented and family-owned, provide the best source of characterful wines that deserve attention. Slow Food is all about what they call 'eco-gastronomy', built around the concepts of biodiversity, sustainable farming, and artisanal production. These are the same principles that provide us with a healthy, dynamic, challenging world of wine. Of course, there are no economies of scale in this league. We have to pay a little more to support these ideals, but the investment is insignificant when compared to the return. For this generation of wine lovers, and the next.

Unquenchable: A Tipsy Search

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
