    Inside this fantastically gorgeous bottle is Bottega Rose Gold. A Brut Rosé made entirely of Pinot Nero grapes grown in Italy’s Lombardy region. The Pinot Nero is handpicked, and carefully soft pressed after 24 hours in the must. The base wine is fermented a second time, before spending time in the cellar before hitting the shelves.

    According to the winemaker, the liquid inside matches the bottle, a “brilliant, subtle pink color” with a taste that’s “fresh, delicate, soft, structured, with balanced acidity and a pleasant and persistent aftertaste.

    Dat Booty Doe, Night Owl, 31, Voodoo Ranger Spicy Release Atomic Pumpkin

    Our featured selections for September area an assortment of seasonal favorites, both old and new.

    Dat Booty Doe with Reagan and Bethany Oktoberfest Style Lager – Heavy Seas
    Heavy Seas teamed up with morning radio show hosts Reagan and Bethany to come up with this Oktoberfest style lager, brewed to be extra malty, with “loads of bready, biscuity Munich malt and balanced with just right amount of Noble European hops.” Heavy Seas considers this a fall session beer, weighing in at 5.5% ABV.

    Night Owl Pumpkin Ale – Elysian Brewing
    Night Owl is a traditional pumpkin ale brewed to perfection, with pumpkin puree, pumpkin juice and roasted and raw pumpkin seeds. Also in the mix, spices you’d expect to find, including ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice. And of course, six types of malt and a bit of hops. 6.7% ABV

    31 Pumpkin Spiced Lager – Duclaw Brewing Co.
    Originally brewed as a one-off, 31 is once again available as a limited seasonal release. This clever brew is a traditional Munich Dunkel, with seasonal spices and pumpkin for a unique amber brew. 5.7% ABV

    Voodoo Ranger Spicy Release Atomic Pumpkin – New Belgium Brewing Co.
    New Belgium puts a spicier twist on pumpkin brews, with chili peppers added to the traditional seasonal spices of cinnamon and cloves. Habanero, Aji and Del Arbol peppers create “spiciness in the back of the throat that lingers…” 6.4% ABV

  • 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.
