  • Bio Zero – Wines Without Sulfites


    Every so often we have a customer requesting a wine without added sulfites. We’ve kept our eye out and found Bio Zero, a line of “wines without sulfites” from Italy’s Cascina Del Colle.

    The Bio Zero red wine is made entirely of Montepulciano grapes, fermented in stainless steel tanks, and aged for one month. The winemaker’s notes describe:

    “red berry fruit, complemented by subtle herbaceous nuances and pleasing floral sensations…balanced, fresh, young, with good tannic texture, body and persistence.”

    Bio Zero’s white wine offering is made of Trebbiano grapes, also fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks for one month. Casinca Del Colle’s notes include:

    “…fresh notes of green apple, white flowers and citrus notes…sapid, fresh, balanced, refreshing.”

    Whether you’ve been searching for a sulfite free wine, or just looking for something interesting to try, consider picking up a bottle of Bio Zero on your next visit to Village Beer & Fine Wine.

    Avery Brewing Co – Liliko’l Kepolo & Maharaja IPA

    We’re delighted to welcome Avery Brewing Co to our selection of craft beers. Avery Brewing Co was founded in 1993, and has stayed often been ahead of the trends, introducing Colorado’s first packaged IPA in 1996.

    Our first selection from Avery Brewing Co continues their tradition of fantastic IPAs with Maharaja IPA, an Imperial India Pale Ale, brewed with malted barley and a hefty hop bill. Avery promises a combination of “citrus hops and caramel toffee malts”, for a “tangy, vibrant and intense” taste.

    The folks at Beer Advocate seem to agree that this is one impressive brew, holding strong at a 94 point score of 5,768 ratings as of this post.

    For something lighter to match the hot summer days, our second selection is a unique Belgian-style White Ale, brewed with passion fruit. Liliko’l Kepolo is a traditional witbier, aside from the four pounds of fruit puree per barrel. Avery suggests this canned tropical witbier as a great choice for your next BBQ or outdoor adventure.

    Liliko’l Kepolo also does well on Beer Advocate, holding strong with a 90 point score of 1,148 ratings.

    Brilla! Prosecco


    We’ve chosen a nice Italian Prosecco for our July 2020 wine selection, Brilla! This sparkling wine hails from the Prosseco DOC and is made entirely of Glera grapes. The winemaker describes Brilla! as “Delicate and complex…with fruity notes reminiscent of peach and green apple with secondar notes of acacia and lilac.” Reviewers consistently call Brilla! Prosecco a great value. A perfectly refreshing selection for these hot summer evenings.

    Maine Beer Co – Lunch India Pale Ale



    Our featured beer for July 2020 is another exciting brew from Maine Beer Company. “Lunch” is juicy IPA, named for a whale often seen off the Maine coast. The brewer’s tasting notes include flavors of “orange, grapefruit and lemon, with pine and herbal undertones”. In addition to three types of hops, Maine Beer Co. brews this IPA with variety of malts for added subtle sweetness.

    Reviewers at BeerAdvocate.com currently rate Lunch IPA as “World Class”, earning a whopping 97 point score of over 5,800 ratings.
