Regular price $246.70per case

Delivery timeline: It requires two cases of each wine in order for us to build and fulfill two mixed cases. This process usually takes about 7-10 business days but may vary.

It is not a party if there aren't bubbles on the table. We have curated this special mixed case featuring two rosé sparkling wines handcrafted by two very special producers that we love: Tornatore from Sicily, and Matthieu Barret from Cornas. Each mixed case includes 3 bottles of each wine.

3 bottles x Tornatore Valdemonte Spumante Rosato Extra Dry (Sicily, Italy)

Sparkling | Nerello Mascalese

A rising star in the Etna region, Tornatore is becoming one of the region's biggest and most respected wineries. Their vineyards are located at an altitude of 1,000 meters above sea level on the north side of this active volcano.

This sparkling wine is made form Nerello Mascalese grapes. It is fine and elegant on the nose, with delicate and continuous bubbles. The nose is fragrant and harmonious, with pleasant aromas of wild strawberry, roses and red geranium. Fresh and savoury on the palate, it is creamy and has a hint of red berries.

Pairing suggestion: this is a perfect sparkling wine to enjoy at aperitif time, with charcuterie, salmon tartare and pizza.

3 bottles x Matthieu Barret Ours Brut Pétillant Rosé Extra Brut 2019 (Rhone, France)
Sparkling | Gamay, Grenache

From legendary winemaker Matthieu Barret of Domaine de Coulet in Cornas, Barret brings a completely new rosé experience to the bottle here. Ours Brut is Matthieu Barret's beautiful sparkling wine made from organic and biodynamic Grenache and Gamay. Made with the méthode traditionnel, the Grenache was grown in the village of Roussas, in the Drôme; while the Gamay came from Eclassan, in the highlands of Ardéche.

With a beautiful and intense salmon red colour with orange hues in the glass, this ancestral has a fine and mesmerizing perlage. Tart, nutty and intensely spicy.  On the nose bitter oranges, grapefruit and blood oranges are loudly represented. Pomegranate and sour cherry are hardly inferior. Aromas of walnuts, hazelnuts and pecans give it a distinct note; and hints of orange blossom and orange zest give this ancestral softness and freshness. Ripe apples, caramelised quince and bread dough round it off.

Pairing suggestion: pair the Ours Brut with heirloom tomato salad with mint and feta, or with fried octopus with paprika-infused mayonnaise and boiled potatoes.

About the Winery

Azienda Agricola Tornatore

Out of a Sicilian family heritage that traces back to the 17th century, the Tornatore’s Mount Etna wine ventures began in 1865. Today the family’s operations are headed by Giuseppe Tornatore, a businessman whose expertise led to the acquisition of some of the region’s finest north-facing vineyards in the early 2000’s. That heritage and the Tornatore’s profound respect and understanding of the land is showcased in wines that capture the essence of Etna, deftly balancing concentrated flavors, complexity, freshness and refinement.

The company lies in the northern side of Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe. The soils have volcanic origin and were created through the disintegration of lava, ash and stones from previous volcanic eruptions. The climate on the northern side of the Etna is characterized by mild temperatures, and more rain fall reflecting the influence of the Volcano. The combination of soil, climate and the skill of the winemakers, have made the northern slope of Etna an ideal area for the production of high-quality wines. “Our vineyards and our winery are only a few kilometers from our family home. Our entire family is rooted there. We have the greatest respect for this region, and we believe we have a responsibility to be stewards of Etna and to reflect its distinct character in our wines.” - Giuseppe Tornatore

Domaine du Coulet - Matthieu Barret

Matthieu Barret was born in Aix-en-Provence in 1975 and studied viticulture in Beaune.

He is the 7th generation vigneron and joined his grandfather in Cornas in 1997. Previously, his family had only been farming and selling grapes. He practices biodynamic viticulture, obtaining very low yields (23 hl/ha) and extraordinary quality. He describes his wines as being 100% grape, with a very low sulphite addition. His wines are extremely clean, and, true to the Cornas character. Domaine du Coulet was founded by Matthieu Barret’s grandfather after WWII, and over the years has supplied grapes to some of the best known producers in the Northern Rhône, including Chapoutier and Delas. While his father eschewed the agrarian lifestyle, opting instead for a career in international business, Matthieu knew early on that he wanted to be a vigneron. In 1998 at the age of only 23, he took over the family’s 25 acres of well-situated vines on the terraced hillsides of Cornas.

From the beginning, Matthieu has employed natural, organic practices and by 2002 (his second year of production) the domaine received its biodynamic certification. With each vintage, Matthieu has gained a better understanding of his vine parcels and through thoughtful experimentation, he now turns out a remarkable selection of Cornas wines that express the unique nuances of each micro-terroir. No new oak, no racking, minimal use of sulfur and no fining or filtration. Pure, sexy Syrah.
