From Sicily's renegade naturalist on Mt. Etna... Volcanic soils and a cooler growing season render this perennial favorite rose' prettier and more delicate than previous years. Purple flowers and clove-studded orange peel dominate the nose, while the palate offers supple fruit and tender structure. For those looking for a bit of tannin and heft in their rose', Frank Cornelissen is your man. We have a small amount of 750s
, 1.5 Liters
and a Jeroboam left in stock. Hurry!
GREETINGS WINE CLUB MEMBER,
Looks like the "all you can drive parking buffet" is over. Ah well, it happens at the end of every summer. Parents, as always, your personal back to school supplies are here on our shelves.
And now, a special announcement from Dhrubo:
In an attempt to enhance our commitment to bringing our customers the best, most exciting wines available on the market, Slope Cellars will soon be launching the slope cellar, a biweekly e-bulletin where we will share our enthusiasm about the geekiest and rarest of wines that we acquire. Through the slope cellar we intend to offer our loyal customers an opportunity to indicate their interest in these products, before we put them out on the shelf for general sale. These wines may be collectibles, but not necessarily. For example, it's common that we are unable to buy more than a few cases of a small-production, well priced wine that everyone wants. Signing up for the slope cellar will help ensure your access to these wines. You can sign up by clicking on the following link, the slope cellar, or sign up at the store on the hard copy list.
Dhrubo would like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for their continued support. Stay tuned for the first release of the slope cellar.
THE GORLITSKY EFFECT
It bears repeating one last time as a "back to school" reminder:
At the end of the public school year, Slope Cellars announced a permanent endowment to P.S 107
. For every case of wine a 107 parent buys, Slope Cellars will donate 3% to the 107 PTA. This was inspired by the tireless work of Lisa Gorlitsky and the PTA parents (including early champions like Nica Lalli and Mary Vines). They exemplify what's great about communities when people step up and donate their talents to solve problems and improve their public institutions. Here's how it works: If you are a 107 parent buying a case of wine you will receive your normal 15% discount. If you say you want to implement the "Gorlitsky Effect", Slope Cellars will donate an additional 3% to the107 PTA. This offer will not expire.
In a rush? Wondering if we carry a specific bottle? Relax and shop in your pajamas. Our entire inventory is online
, ready to be delivered near and far.
