Gateway Wines: Wine for Beginning Enthusiasts

Wondering where to start your journey with wine? Here are some gateway bottles sure to kickstart your wonderful relationship with wine.

Pierre Sparr Alsace Riesling
Tropical fruit aromatics, low alcohol, and a silky smooth body; this is a perfect introduction to white wine. Maison Pierre Sparr follows a 300-year-old tradition of winemaking that began during the reign of King Louis XIV. Since 1680, the Sparr family’s passion for viticulture and winemaking has passed from one generation to the next. Don’t let the word “Riesling” scare you off, this is a perfect expression of dry Riesling from France that introduces floral notes and fruit does not mean sweet. After noticing the passion fruit on the nose your palate will discover a smooth texture with soft acid that balances the light body and offers a hint of a spicy finish.

2014 Lola Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir: Classic, fruity, brooding, Audrey Hepburn in a bottle, graceful, earthy… The noble varietal is never the same; it’s grown all across the world and takes on characteristics from each location. After 12 harvests at some of the worlds’ most renowned wineries, winemaker and owner Seth Cripe established LOLA in 2008 in Napa Valley which pays tribute to the old-world tradition with carefully selected vineyards and handcrafted in small batches. The wine has aromas of cola, blackberries, cherries and vanilla notes and the body has a rich layered mouth-feel, abundant in flavor and texture. With Pinot Noir you get a light red that will remain in your repertoire for the rest of life and as your palate changes you will start to demand more complex expressions which are some of the best wines in the world.

Canaletto Primitivo Puglia
Juicy, fruit forward, smooth, clean; this is Welch’s fruit juice with alcohol. Canaletto is the brand that has been bringing quality expressions of Italian wine at introductory prices. From the Salento region in Puglia, one of Italy’s most southerly wine producing regions comes a wine that is incredibly approachable for the beginner palate. An intense bouquet of ripe dark berry fruits which burst through to the palate. Rich, smooth and round with a well balanced finish. This rich wine is ideal with meat, game or pasta dishes.
