Wine of the Week

We may not have the largest selection but every wine here has a story to tell. Here are our clumsy attempts to give these works of art at least a little love!

Baglio della Fate Nero dAvola

Sicilan Nero d'Avola has awesome earthy character, big bold dark fruit and a teeny price tag.


St Hilaire Blanquette di Limoux

Saint Hilaire's Blanquette de Limoux is a delicious affordable sparkling wine from the French side of the Pyrenees. Only $16? Yes indeed!


Can Blau WOTW

Wine has been produced in Montsant for over 2,000 years. The diverse soil types and landscapes are conducive to making a high quality product. Surrounding Priorat, and sharing it's Llicorella soil, this wine has a lot going on. Dark cherry, black and blue berries, spice, herbs and minerality. Good amount of tannin with acid to balance.


Obsidian Cabernet

A wonderful classic CA Cab with solid structure from the altitude and Hungarian oak. Reserved and dark on the nose with aromas of blackberries, hints of black licorice and coffee. Really nice and elegant. Touch on the masculine side with no jammy, jelly jar junk here. Wonderfully different.


Poco do Lobo Bairrada Baga

Always on the hunt for the extraordinarily geeky, we are pleased to present Poco do Lobo! The dominant grape is one native to Portugal, called Baga. This wine is vinified and spends its whole life in concrete until it's unleashed in the world upon special order. This wine is old enough to drink itself! A 1996 still showing gorgeous cherry licorice and surprising tannin!



Beaujolais Nouveau from Domain Dupeuble

While Beaujolais Nouveau has a so-so reputation for quality, we have a wonderful example of this wine's potential. These vineyards date back to 1512 and these vines are 50 to 100 years old. If you are looking for a vibrant, easy drinking wine for your holiday table, this is a great choice at $19. No chemical fertilizers, no added SO2 just plenty of flavor.


Casa de Valor & Domanda Prosecco

Just in time for the holidays, some delicious sparklers that will still leave money left over for presents. Both of these are for sale for less than $15 a bottle in the Orchard Wine Cellar and will help you toast family and friends this holiday season.



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Tintero Moscato

    #1 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.
    (Holding the #1 spot)

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #2 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays. (behind by 4 bottles)

  • Castelfeder Pertico Rosso

    #3 Castelfeder Pertico Rosso

    Such a pretty little wine! Deep, ruby color and a intense aromas of cherries, tobacco, blackberry. Just a little oak to mellow things out .

    #4 Gran Passione
