A Warm Greeting To You!
I am thrilled to welcome you to our Autumn's Palette wine collection, a harvest of wines inspired by Latin heritage. This collection has been thoughtfully curated with a rich tapestry of experiences, desires, and inspirations in mind, and I am eager to share the story behind these exceptional selections.
This collection was born out of my own travels and experiences, driven by a desire to spotlight wines from regions that often lie beyond the familiar boundaries of the US market and to showcase women who are making waves in the industry. Through this collection, we aim to shed light on vibrant, diverse, and often underrepresented wines.
Throughout my travels, I have had the privilege of tasting wines from talented, diverse winemakers. These wines, often characterized by their limited production, distribution challenges, and insufficient awareness in the United States, can be hard to find and share in the US.
During my recent journey to Argentina, I was captivated by the breathtaking landscapes, cuisine, and extraordinary wines that the country had to offer. Argentina, it turns out, is a treasure trove of culinary and oenological delights, extending far beyond the realm of the renowned Malbec grape variety.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that it's not just the bold and robust reds that steal the show. The country's vineyards also boast thriving white grape varieties like Semillon, which add a delightful and refreshing dimension to the wine scene. This revelation has fueled our excitement to include "El Enemigo Semillon" in the collection.
I also had the privilege of exploring the charming town of Orvieto, Italy, where history and culture intertwine. The picturesque landscapes, rich heritage, and warm hospitality of Orvieto make it a wonder why more people aren’t drinking the wines from this region. "Barbi Orvieto Classico Abboccato" is an excellent gateway to all that is to be discovered in Orvieto.
In all my travels, I’ll never forget where I come from—the great state of Maryland, where the wine scene continues to grow. Loew Vineyards highlight just how great Maryland wine has become.
In crafting this collection, we aim to bridge the gap between these hidden gems. The profound stories and traditions that shape these wines can sometimes get lost between the vineyard and the bottle. It is our mission to shine a spotlight on this diversity and cultural richness.
As we transition from the scorching summer days to the cozy embrace of autumn, our selections are tailored to complement this transition. These wines, with their versatility and depth, are perfect for both leisurely warm evenings and the heartier, more robust meals that autumn brings. They embody Latin warmth and hospitality, and I am confident they will bring comfort and joy to your fall nights.
I invite you to embark on this journey of discovery, to savor each bottle with an open heart and an open mind, and to celebrate the vibrant Latin heritage that flows through our glasses. May this collection be a testament to the beauty of diversity in wine!
