Discover my selection of unique boutique wines with sustainability at their core.
The aroma leads to a bright and lifted combination of red and dark fruits with considerable florals. On the palate, there is a combination of transparency, power and tension. The silky entry of spice and savory notes expand to pure, deep fruits, braced with acidity, but luscious throughout. The frame is a finely woven latticework: intricate and detailed with a strong sense of longevity. This exemplary wine is a blend of four properties that elegantly expresses the graceful and more subtle side of the vineyard Bannockburn.
I created Wine Monkey to bring together a collection of lesser-known craft wines that celebrate sustainability, whether environmental, human, economic and/or social and to support the producers who see and care about the bigger picture.
You name it, I've done it: from marketing and brand management to retail and trade sales, wine tourism, wine education, ecommerce and, most recently sommelier, with several vintages under my belt both in the cellar and in the vineyard.
Having worked my way through the vineyards of southern Oregon, the Loire, the Languedoc, the Rhône and now the UK, I have developed a passion for "unique boutique" wines. Wine Monkey is all about bringing together and showcasing the incredible wines I've collected along the way. Get in touch to let me know what you think of my selection and to share your favorites with me. I'd love to hear from you!
