It is time to deal with the TTB and get importer status. They were great to work with when I achieved my Basic Permit. Hope it goes as well

Calling on Distributors this week. Need to shore up some placements in DC and Md. My home turf has proved to be the toughest pitch yet.

A Good Way to End a Fun Evenning

Well its 10ish and I have finally finished a thorough tasting of 14 wines from South Africa. Stellenbosch to be precise. If you had known me 9 years ago, you would have laughed at the thought that I would taste through a portfolio of SA reds, being an avid hater of pinotage and the like. But today, I decided to work through my preconceived notions and give them a fair shot. Well I am really happy that I did because I am a new fan, and not just the white wines. I tasted through three price… Continue

Hi John,

Portugal has many autochthones grape varieties, red and whites.
White varieties are very interesting, with very different characters, but SYRIA also called Códega do Larinho is fantastic, with citrons aromas of tangerine and orange.
Portugal Dão region has the most gastronomic wines: fresh, intense, elegant with very nice acidity, made with autochthonous grapes from very particularly varieties.
Just try.
I am a producer in Portuguese Dão region, and I suggest you to taste an old Dão.

Just see what Paul White Thinks about as:

“So far, Portugal has managed to remain true to its traditions, while at the same time offering up a huge range of distinctive grape varieties and unusual wine styles precisely when many of us are tiring of endless New World makeovers of French varietals.

Dao has a lot going for it in that respect: first rate grape varieties firmly rooted in granite-based ‘terroir’ that sparkles back like diamonds, all this shaped by a growing season that’s relatively gentler and longer than other Portuguese regions. Although relatively unknown and sometimes tricky to pronounce, Dao’s red wines offer consumers genuinely new and exciting tasting experiences.”

Visit please our web-site, for now it’s just in Portuguese, but to see photos you don’t need any translation: www.quintadaboavista.eu

Hope to hear from you soon.

Best.

John, not sure if you would like to look at an Australian Zin. We make a zinfandel off 15 acres in the Moorabool Valley near Geelong in Southern Victoria. It's a bit of a blockbuster, chocolate and christmas pudding style. We also have 47 acres of pinot off 13 clones. We make a serious Viognier as well. Not sure if these would fit into your profile?
