Georgian Black Wine and Buffalo Tallegio at Bi-Rite

Just when you think you’ve tried just about everything in the world of wine and
cheese, something new happens upon your path that challenges and delights your senses.
Who knew that the Republic of Georgia had nearly 8000 years of winemaking history,
or that people were making washed-rind cheeses out of buffalo milk in chilly northern
Italy? We’ve also stumbled upon what might be the best Pinot Grigio we’ve ever tasted!
Stop by the wine and cheese aisle the next time you’re in the market; we’re bursting
with new and unusual products to enliven even the most jaded of palates!
Quadrello di Bufala
When one thinks of buffalo milk cheeses, the rich buffalo mozzarellas of Campania
and southern Italy immediately come to mind. The small dairy Quattro Portoni in
Lombary is bucking tradition and producing an amazing buffalo milk version of Taleggio,
the famed washed-rind cow’s milk cheese of northern Italy. Quadrello di Bufala shares
Taleggio’s square shape and is produced using a similar method of washing the exterior
with a salt water sponge. The rind is wonderfully pungent, revealing a semi-ripe
interior with a creamy, mouth coating texture and pleasing tang. This cheese is
fantastic with Port or an off-dry Riesling.
2009 La Cadalora Pinot Grigio Vallagarina
$19.99
Pinot Grigio is often thought of as fairly innocuous white wine meant for quaffing,
not contemplation. La Cadalora’s Pinot Grigio soundly smashes that unfair characterization.
Full of complex stone fruit, mineral, and mountain herb notes, this wine certainly
merits your full attention. Hailing from the Trentino region of northern Italy,
La Cadalora makes a fascinating array of wine from both indigenous and international
grape varieties. We love this Pinot Grigio on its own or with a fresh goat’s milk
cheese like Redwood Hill’s California Crottin.
2009 Pheasant’s Tears Saperavi
$16.99
The Republic of Georgia has what is likely the longest history of wine production
in the world, dating as far back as 6000 BC. Their current wine culture is still
thriving as evidenced by their per-capita wine consumption, the highest in the
world. As far as wine fashion was concerned, Georgian wine was long seen as rustic
and outdated. That perception may change with the current trend of clay amphora
aging sweeping the wine world, an ancient technique still used by many Georgian
wineries. Pheasant’s Tears, a small winery in the Kakheti region, makes a fascinating
red with Saperavi, the noble red grape of Georgia. The resulting wine made from
Saperavi is so dark, they are called “Black Wines” by Georgians. Pheasant’s Tears’
bottling is inky purple with aromas of tar, blackcurrent, and pine, along with flavors
black cherries, earth, and almonds. A must try for fans of traditional, old-world
wines!

As always, there’s a 10% discount when you buy 6 bottles or more and free delivery
in San Francisco when you purchase 12 bottles or more.

Don’t hesitate to call us with any questions or special requests at 415-241-9760

Sincerely,
