No matter […]

Montepulciano – An Italian Grape Makes it to Wisconsin!

October 19th, 2016 by Brad Schmiling

Let’s talk about something that isn’t easy to say. Everyone seems to have finally nailed down the pronunciation of Merlot, Chardonnay, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Now, if you’ve also finally mastered Gewürztraminer it may be time for a new challenge: Montepulciano! Montepulciano is a second-nature wine expression in Italy. It is rarely found in northern Italy because […]

Pinot Noir Returns

September 19th, 2016 by Brad Schmiling

Pinot Noir is back in stock! Our timing can be impeccably poor, and we like it that way. In 1967, Doc Stiehl was ahead of his time with screw caps. The closure let in less oxygen, and was less prone to the natural bacteria that is commonly found in natural corks. Af­ter decades of hearing […]

Wine Shipping Prices Reduced – As of July 1, 2016

June 29th, 2016 by

Ordering wine to be shipped used to require picking up the phone and chatting. We’re pretty sure that 800 numbers were created just for this reason.
