Discover my selection of unique boutique wines with sustainability at their core.
Cuvée Anne Chardonnay is a barrel selection from the producers' best Chardonnay sites: Justice, Seven Springs, Sojeau and X Novo Vineyards. It is a blend that represents their vision of Willamette Valley Chardonnay through the lens of the Eola-Amity Hills.
This wine boasts clarity and precision, leading with supple aromas of Meyer lemon zest, green pear and white peach, layered with floral notes of honeysuckle, lemon myrtle, orange blossom, and a hint of oyster shell. The palate is intricately fruity with freshness at the forefront, followed by a focused acidity.
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!
