  To answer an often-asked question, the New City is nothing like the Old City…at least not one that anyone alive today has ever tasted. The new Falls City Beer is an Extra Special English Pale Ale. It is a “session beer”, similar to the pale ale Falls City made back in the 1930’s. Falls City was Louisville’s original micro-brewery with several different varieties of beer (including a Pale Ale). We intend to continue that tradition and appeal to the palates of all types of beer enthusiasts with seasonal beers. For now, our only brew is a really nice ale which is full-bodied and well-balanced with a nice finish. It is less hoppy than typical American Pale Ales, so the third and fourth ones are just as much fun to drink as the first. So if you’re disappointed (or relieved) we’re “not like the old Falls City”, we are! -- just more like the really old Falls City. LEARN MORE

Montgravet comes from vineyards located in the Gascony region, near the city of Toulouse in the South West of France. The climate combines the Oceanic and Mediterranean influences, which brings enough sun and humidity to grow rich, concentrated and ripe grapes. Close to the producers, and in order to source the best vineyards, our winemaker has found some amazing “terroirs” spread on hills. These hills are called “Mont” in French. So as a tribute to the terroir from where the wine comes from we have named in Montgravet, “Gravet” being the name of an oval shaped rock commonly found in the area.

Felons, running roughshod over London town, were menacing good people, wreaking havoc and, caught by the scores, clogging every jail in the kingdom. A civic dilemma of colossal proportions.

Meanwhile, two oceans away, a newly claimed and virgin continent was in dire need of subjects to bring civilization to bear. Yet the voyage was endless and brutal, the rewards meager to nil.

The savagely elegant solution: Punishment by Transportation.

A list of 19 Crimes was drawn. Conviction meant a torturous journey to an unknown and unforgiving land.

Australia, thus, was born.

Passion has the wonderful power to turn mere objects into an obsession, to transform everyday tasks into art. At Beringer, we have been living our passion for over 138 years.

Our history dates back to the year 1868, when Jacob Beringer, enticed by the opportunities of the new world, sailed from his home in Mainz, Germany, to New York. However, after hearing that the rocky hillside soil and fertile valley floor resembled that of vineyards back home in Germany, Jacob made his way to the Napa Valley. Jacob and his brother Frederick purchased 215 acres of land in 1875, and became one of the first wineries in Napa Valley.

Since then, we have honed, deepened, and expanded the art of winemaking. We pursue balance between modern technology and time-tested winemaking traditions, resulting in wines of global recognition. LEARN MORE

 

We've found that wineries tend to hate wild boars—they break through fences, root around the vineyards, dine out on the grapes. To that we say: Riot on.

Could there be a better mascot for people like us, the ones who love wine at all costs regardless of rules and traditions? We think those boars are risk-takers. They're rebels. Hate wild boars? That's not us.

Out here on the Central Coast, wild boars are our kindred spirits.

The story begins over 4 centuries ago, when the Duboeuf family was producing wine in the Mâconnais region. Georges was very young when his uncle and brother passed down both their passion for wine and their secrets of production. At just 18 years old, he preferred to take care of the family business with his brother rather than pursuing his studies.

The Vina Eguia winery and vineyards were established in 1973 in Elciego and purchased by Bodegas Muriel in 2010. Elciego is a historic village in the Rioja Alavesa, which borders the Spanish “Basque” region, and the language spoken there often includes Basque words, such as “Eguia” which means “truth.” The brand is symbolized by an open hand over the label, which is in the shape of an open book – analogous to putting one’s hand on a bible to swear to the truth of what one is saying.

 

The growing season began early with a warm and dry spring, and the weather stayed absolutely beautiful all the way through an early harvest. These conditions allow us to pick at optimal flavor with the acidity and sugars right inline, creating a forward wine while maintaining the true varietal characteristics.

These grapes were sourced from three vineyards located in the heart of the valley; Red Hen, Skellenger and Oak Knoll. These vineyards produce vibrant colors and flavors combined with the structure associated with the high mineral content of the soils found in this area.

 

Twelve years ago it was born, made in gallon jugs, tied to a raft, kept cold by the river and drank until gone. Mission accomplished.

It’s been an ice breaker, a party favorite, a boat drink, a hiking beverage, a ski buddy, a wing man and an excuse.

Go ahead and follow the liter, for a mix-and-go cocktail made with real lime juice and ready to pair with your favorite spirit.

Lake Sonoma Winery focuses on the individual appellations in Northern Sonoma County where California’s top grape varieties achieve their ultimate expression of character. Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc come from Dry Creek Valley, where gravelly soils and a climate of warm days and cool nights produce intense fruit and impressive balance. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are grown in the very cool, often foggy Russian River Valley, where they develop rich, crisp character. Cabernet Sauvignon is drawn from Alexander Valley, where fertile soils and very warm climate result in mouthfilling character and smooth texture. The intrinsic excellence of these regions is enhanced by sustainable farming techniques in the vineyards, which uses natural amendments and controls to enrich the soil and combat pests.
