Now, of course, that's not how we order wine. But in honor of back-to-school week, whether you're sending the little ones off to first grade, the big ones off to college, or are a teacher yourself, here are two Chardonnays that [...]

Abbie is drinking a very friendly Beaujolais

La Galoche Beaujolais Gamay is a light-bodied, easy-drinking red that will be a hit at any get-together. Similar to a Pinot, this wine has notes of juicy plums and Luxardo cherries while remaining dry with soft tannins.I paired this wine, slightly chilled, with homemade gyros, but I think it would also complement any charcuterie or even dessert. This food-friendly wine is a great gift idea — or you can keep it for yourself.Cheers!Friends & Family DealsBottle Discounts:3 bottles: 5% off6 bottles: 10% off12 bottles: 15% offHappy HourEnjoy an extra 5% volume discount on Mondays and Tuesdays from 4pm to 6pm.3 [...]

The Winery at Château Saint-Sernin

The Saint-Sernin Winery was born in 1619, in Parnac, France, a picturesque village enclosed by a meander in the river Lot, in a lovely valley outside of Cahors, France. Our relationship with the newest owners, Anne and Heifara, started soon after we opened Marczyk Fine Wines, when we met Phil Sevier. Phil had created relationships with small wineries in France, from Cahors to Beaune, and brought super-affordable wines to Denver. Now Paul Marczyk and his wife, Cheriese, run VinCo, and many of these wines are the ones we started with all those years ago. The Carbonneau Margot, Saint-Sernin Malbec, and [...]

Seth has a dry Alsatian you’re going to love

Ever since we discovered that an Alsatian and a German Shepherd are the same breed of dog, we thought we should point out that the Alsatian we're talking about here is a wine — a Sylvaner from E. Traber in Alsace, France. Sylvaner isn't a grape that's bandied about very often. Still, do NOT overlook this amazing, dry Alsatian white. It is light, bright, and outta sight. You will experience notes of peach, grapefruit, orange blossom, thyme, and a delicious flinty minerality. Pair this Sylvaner with antipasti, cheeses, olives, spicy Asian cuisine, mushroom omelets, onion tarts, quiches, and even sushi. [...]
