08 Mar The BEST Sparkling Ice Wine We Have Ever Found!
Rare Sparkling Ice Wine!
We have a real rarity in the wine world…a sparkling ice wine, and it’s not the Martini & Rossi you brought to prom. There were only 300 cases produced. Due to the intense labor and expense involved, no one else makes this style. Only 10%…TEN PERCENT!!.. of the potential juice is used, as the grapes were naturally frozen in December. When compared to other ice wines from around the world, the price is a bargain. This is certainly one of our top wines of the year, and an incredible wine to end a meal!
NV Caschina Barrichi “Regina de Felicita” Moscato Spumante Piedmont, Italy
On Sale $24.99
Rich aromas reminiscent of tropical fruit, passion fruit, mango and papaya. Intense Moscato, and a fresh scent of ripe grapes. In the mouth a pleasant sensation of “mousse moscato.” The great freshness and fine bead given by the long Charmat give this sweet wine a very balanced feel.
And here is the new vintage of our best selling Moscato for over 20 years!
“Paolo Saracco remains the reference point producer for Moscato d’Asti… I am perplexed why no one else can make wines at this level. But the truth remains that very few can, or are willing to make the sacrifices necessary to do so.”

2015 Saracco Moscato d’Asti Piedmont, Italy
On Sale $14.99 750ml, $24.99 1.5 Liter
Located in the picture-perfect village of Casilglione Tinella, in the heart of the Langhe (Piedmont), the Saracco family has been growing Moscato d’Asti for four generations. The soils here are comprised of limestone mixed with sandy veins and the vineyard’s elevation provides the right temperature and humidity balance. This wine has lots of fresh peach, pear and jasmine on the nose and a gentle sparkle on the palate that brightens the fruit. Try as an apertivo or as a refreshing finish to a meal.
