Discover my selection of unique boutique wines with sustainability at their core.
This deep ruby-red hued wine shows notes of tobacco and plum on the nose. Subtle nuances of black olives, pepper and dark plum coupled with balanced acidity and soft tannins on the palate come together to make a complex wine. Rocky soils with a good sunlight exposure add elegant acidity and a distinctive complexity to this wine.
Pair with slow-braised lamb shanks, malai kofta, spaghetti and meatballs or roast duckling.

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!
