I opened a bottle of Tintero Bianco for dinner the other night, and after one sip my wife turned to me and said, “This is fun.” She’s right. The unique blend of Favorita, Moscato, Arneis, and Chardonnay is dry but not tart, fruity but not cloying, and held together with a gentle effervescence. Marco Tintero bottles our allocation on demand, so we get the freshest wine possible. I don’t remember what we ate that night, but I remember the Bianco.

A famous investor—I think it was Jimmy Buffett—once said, “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” What you get here is a lovely, unfussy bottle of stone fruit–scented Italian white that’s a joy to drink. Try a bottle for the price. Buy a case for the value.
Longtime customers don’t even bother with the name Dupeuble when ordering this perennially delicious Gamay. “Just give me a case of Kermit’s Beaujolais,” they’ll say. The 2019 is a big wine for the domaine, powerful and slightly tannic, with good ripeness balanced by great acidity, structure, and minerality. When the new vintage arrives each year, it’s like an old friend coming to visit.
A more recent addition to our portfolio, the Languedoc rouge “Cuvée Kermit Lynch” has quickly become almost as popular as our Côtes du Rhone. It’s made by our friend Jean-Claude Zabalia, who sources the grapes from his vineyards in the mountainous Languedoc terroir of Cabrières. The 2018 vintage is over half Syrah, giving it lots of smoky dark fruit and a toothsome meatiness.
