Chateau le Grand Métairie Bordeaux Blanc France 7.50
sauvignon blanc, sauvignon gris and muscadelle blend in this wine for a typical slaty citrus flavor.
celeriac | yukon gold potatoes | grilled romaine | green beans| parsley-lemon dressing | red onion | pickled quail egg | 9.95
Adega de Pegões Terras do Sado, Portugal 6.50
really interesting nose of summer ripe fruit like peaches and apricots. on the palate a touch of that same fruit comes out with great acidity.
curried sweet potato latke | kale chips | mint-coconut yogurt sauce | basil oil | chili oil | 10.95
Ken Forrester Petit Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch, S Africa 7.00
Crisp green apple, with a pleasant roundness. I think of this wine as a real thirst quenching drink. So delicious after a log jog.
french lentils | chorizo | mushroom escabeche | cauliflower | pecorino | basil syrup |8.95
Lini Lambrusco Emilia-Romagna, Italy 8.50
Forget what you think you know about Lambrusco. This wine is dry, red, effervescent and delicious. Tart with a little bit of food-friendly-funk (yes, I just made that term up). Try it and see.
crispy beef shank steam bun
balsamic rosemary reduction | spaghetti squash | snow peas| tomato | onion | garlic | pumpkin marshmallow | demi-glace | 11.95
Dom Filliatreau “Chateau Fouquet” Saumur, France 7.50
Loire Valley Cabernet Franc is one of those wonderful guilty pleasures: black raspberries, an eager acidity, and a river-bed minerality. Actually…there isn’t a thing there to be guilty about, is there? Enjoy!
six plates cheese plate
sliced apple | honey | fruit compote | mixed nuts | crostini | 11.95
Scala Dei Priorat Catalonia, Spain 9.00
100% garnacha. this is rich red wine with a little raisin and prune in it. definitely worth trying.

Vergano Mauro Vermouth Bianco 7.00
No, this is not your father’s vermouth. Not as sweet as you might expect, this fortified wine is made with herbs and aromatics and has a lightly floral finish. Lovely on its own, better with dessert.
