"..... from whiskey to wine....."
"There are few words that ignite attention in the Fall like: "Pappy Van Winkle."

There is now something PAPPY VAN WINKLE we can sell!

Pappy Van Winkle Bourbon Barrels were used to create two seductive reds from Spain!

Pappy + Wine = Mighty Fine

2013 Southern Belle – Red Wine Blend of Monastrell and Syrah from Murcia, Spain - $18+ - Inky & Delicious!

2013 Southern Belle Syrah “Precious” – 100% Syrah from the region of Murcia, Spain $33+ - Huge & Intense!

The iconic bourbon producer Pappy Van Winkle and the trailblazing winemaker of Clio and Alto Moncayo have created two seductive Spanish reds ideal for The Holiday Season!

A brief dinner with Chris Ringland (of Clio) and Julian Van Winkle sparked the inspiration to marry aged bourbon barrels with wine. The wine industry may never be the same again.

From whiskey to wine, producers of all kinds are using unique barrels to create the next artisanal niche within their craft: used sherry casks for scotch, cabernet casks for bourbon, and bourbon casks for ales. It was just a matter of time until one of the wine world's hot-shots paired up with the bourbon world's icon, Pappy Van Winkle.

On the nose, the 2013 Southern Belle Red Wine exhibits lots of blackberry and blueberry, with a reserved but obvious hint of vanilla and bourbon. It’s full bodied and supple, pouring a deep purple with a tinge of red. The bourbon notes are much more reserved on the palate, sharing the stage with ripe red fruit, toffee, and vanilla. The finish is long, rich, and complex, with just enough grip at the end. There is nothing boozy or overpowering about his wine in the least.

It’s perfectly balanced and elegant in its delivery, offering up just enough bourbon flavor to make it unique, but not so much that it seems gimmicky. Southern Belle is a one-of-a-kind treat that shouldn’t be missed!

ACT FAST! Very Limited quantities are available!"

"Brace yourself for this one.....
Clio + Pappy = Precious. You are reading this correctly.

Rich and full bodied, the aromas are intoxicating with blueberry, blackberry, cherry and spice. The rare use of the Pappy Bourbon casks infuse smoke, roasted vanilla bean, coffee, tobacco and savory tannins. So smooth and silky, the bourbon cask adds an amazing accent; it is not overwhelming but instead works in symphony with the berries and spice of the Syrah. Well done!

VERY SMALL AMOUNT AVAILABLE – ACT NOW…. Or risk hearing it from your friends first."
