“The finest glasses for both technical and hedonistic purposes are those made by Riedel. The effect of these glasses on fine wine is profound. I cannot emphasize enough what a difference they make.” (Robert M. Parker, Jr. The Wine Advocate)
“The Riedel family has never stamped its name on a single bottle of wine. But over the past 50 years, this Austrian clan of master glassmakers has done more to enhance the oenophile’s pleasure than almost any winemaking dynasty”. (TIME MAGAZINE)
Claus Riedel was the first person in the long history of the glass to design its shape according to the character of the wine. He is thus the inventor of the functional wine glass.
We carry a variety of different olive oils including Villa Calcinaia and Moris Farms. Each oil we offer has a great flavor and uniqueness. We are proud to stand behind small producers and sell olive oil that is representative of the producer and their specific regions. Stop in today to taste some of these amazing oils!
Villa Calcinaia Olive Oil is cold-pressed to conserve all its flavor and fragrance.
The olives grown on the Calcinaia estate produce an exceptional oil with a characteristic spicy taste with undertones of artichoke, green leaf and chestnut. Its color is an intense green typical of the area and is produced (min. 80%) from the varietals Correggiolo, Moraiolo and Leccino. Singular for its fragrance and spiciness, it offers not only the healthy benefits of low cholesterol, but also the ability to carry you back in time to the traditions of the countryside of old.
Moris Farms Olive Oil is a wonderful expression of finesse and flavor. From the Maremma area in southern Tuscany, this oil has been a favorite for many years.
We carry a small selection of great vinegars, including Villa Manodori Balsamic Vinegar, Villa Manodori Dark Cherry Balsamic Vinegar, and Villa Calcinaia Red Wine Vinegar.
Villa Manodori Balsamic Vinegar is the labor of Massimo Bottura, Chef Patron of the three Michelin star restaurant Osteria Francescana in Modena, Italy. He produces this artisanal balsamic vinegar in very limited quantities. Villa Manodori begins with locally grown grapes, which are reduced into must, and then aged in different wood barrels. Villa Manodori’s dark color and rich aroma reflect a century of family tradition.
Villa Calcinaia Red Wine Vinegar is flavorful, yet never overwhelming. Villa Calcinaia’s Aceto di Vino Rosso is an ideal addition to any sort of cuisine, whether for gourmet cooking or the simplest dishes. Made from select wines, Villa Calcinaia’s red wine vinegar is produced according to local tradition, which the Capponi family can document since 1693. It is of a fine, clear color, and carefully processed for a balanced taste. Its aroma, mellowed by a slow maturation in the bottle, evokes the fullness of the wine from which it originates.
We carry two producers of mineral water, Ferrarelle and Lauretana, from Italy! These waters are small production and not typically found in the United States.
The natural sparkle and precious minerals that have made Ferrarelle famous throughout the world are the result of the course taken by the water. It is a unique phenomenon created by nature alone. Ferrarelle mineral water has a unique taste which is soft and fresh; its sparkle, so smooth on the palate, makes it just right from starters through to dessert, and for all menus.
- Ferrarelle is bottled exactly as how it comes from its spring, completely natural.
- Its origin gives the water a unique and particular organoleptic profile which is at times decisive and personal.
- The natural effervescence produces a rich and fine perlage, persistent as the ones in champagne.
- The tast of Ferrarelle is full, soft, savoury with strains of softness and distinctive roundness. Its effervescence is delicate and gentile, as not to disturb the palate; perfectly in equilibrium with its dissolved minerals.
