Brad's Wine Subscription Tasting Notes - June 2021
”I have been inspired to work with small, family-owned wineries because in my experience, they produce the best value wines that you can find. These wines are hand-crafted - they have a story about where they are from and how they are made - and it is these wines that I send out every month to our subscribers, wines with beautiful details that I enjoy sharing with people."
June 2021 Free Gift
Thanks to our friends and partners at Medica 7 in Croatia, we are offering all of our subscribers a free sample bottle of Honey Liqueur, naturally produced from grape brandy combined with seven types of honey and propolis and aged for two years in oak barrels before release. Production is limited to 5,000 bottles per year. With each sip, you will feel an explosion of natural sweetness, fruit and forest-honey flavours. Cool in the freezer and serve chilled - straight, not with ice.
