Casa de Vila Nova Alvarinho ~ AdventSale#22 ~ crisp Vinho Verde from Portugal

Casa de Vila Nova Alvarinho

A Portuguese Christmas dinner traditionally ends with the “King’s cake”. There’s a bean hidden in it. Whoever finds her has to get the cake next year. In our fantastic Casa de Vila Nova Alvarinho the pure pleasure is “hidden”. If you “find” it, you will voluntarily and from a strong drive of your own – and not just next year. Because this fruity, green Vinho Verde inspires all year round. It is green (and tastes!) not only in summertime, but also in winter. Whether it snows at Christmas or not.

Warres King’s Tawny Port ~ AdventSale#18 ~ noble port wine from venerable house

Warres Kings Tawny Port

If that’s not a Christmas bouquet! This royal-tasty Tawny Port smells enticingly of dried fruits, nuts, almonds, caramel, orange peel, black tea, tender wood and freshly ground pepper. On the palate, the Warre’s King’s Tawny Port delights with a velvety soft mouthfeel. Sweetness and acidity are excellently balanced and accompany the aromas of the bouquet into a long and lingering finish. An excellent Tawny Port, especially in this price range. We are thrilled and give away 90 BELViNi points!

Gran Appasso Edizione Old Vines Puglia IGP ~ AdventSale#12 ~ 98 Luca-Maroni-points

Femar Vini Gran Appasso Edizione Old Vines

If the gifted wine artists of Femar Vini take only grapes from old Primitivo vines and create a brand-new top quality creation from them in a refined procedure, then we can be as curious as a lightning arch. The Femar Vini Gran Appasso Edizione Old Vines Primitivo Puglia IGP is composed of dried berries, passing through a short passage in wooden barrels, producing an above-average alcohol content. The “increase in wages” has truly earned this wine, after so much effort in the service of quality!

Ramón Bilbao Rioja with 90 Robert Parker points ~ AdventSale#7

Ramón Bilbao Rioja

Other countries, different customs. Basque children are visited by Olentzero at Christmas – a thick, dirty, quirky, very funny charcoal burner. He usually lives in the forest, and apart from charcoal-making, eating and drinking are his only occupation. Therefore, he must be a profound connoisseur of Rioja wines. Although the children’s wish lists contain other desires, Riojas are the measure of all things in the adult’s order forms. The Ramón Bilbao “Edition Limitada” Crianza is almost charcoal-raven black (like a dirty charcoal burner).
