Longest day of the year calls for more wine… Our latest liter size bottle holds a delicious white wine from Slovenia! Picked by hand from the hills of Jarenina with love and passion. Crnko (Churn-ko) $15
"These humble liter bottles represent half of Črnko’s total production and until the 2009 vintage had only been sold locally in the nearby village of Jarenina from where the wine takes its name. All fruit is estate grown and comes from the family’s 6 hectares of mixed white varietals planted to the regions unique marl soils and sustainably farmed. High toned Laski Riesling and Mueller-Thurgau coupled with the aromatics from the Muscats create juicy tangerine and quince notes with a silty minerality characteristic of the estate. Thirst quenching and light on its feet with invigorating acidity makes it difficult to set down. During the summers in the village of Jarenina, locals mix it with sparkling water and then proceed to consume well into the next day."
Did you read that last part? It’s officially summer, which means it’s officially wine-spritzer season!
