Libation Project  A Chris Foster & Weston Hoard collaboration. Importers, distributors and fine wine enablers. MSP, MN.

Day 5, December 18th: Rafael Tirado's 2017 Vistalago Mezcla Blanca. 55% Riesling, 30% Chardonnay, 15% Torontel. If you don't have this on your top 10 list of delicious white wines from Chile, kindly re-evaluate your list. Aromatic notes of tropical fruits, melon and citrus will lift you out of this cold flatland and warm your soul.

Day 4, December 17th: Big babies all snuggled in tight, waiting to ship to their new home. 2015 Mags of Pynoz from Les Capriades. Methode Ancestrale, Pineau d'Aunis & Pinot Noir, Touraine. Need I continue? #glouglou

Day 3, December 16th: White Rose Estate 'The Convivial Feast' Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2016. This Pinot is a little more of a "racy, hedonistic style" compared to other White Rose wines of enjoyed, yet is nonetheless stunning, as per usual. Drink with friends.....during a feast....

Day 2, December 15th: Vaglio Chacra. This beautiful, single vineyard Malbec is brought to us by winemaker Jose Lovaglio Balbo. From the Serpiente vineyard in Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo, this is one of Balbo's representations of the different microclimates of Northern Mendoza. Not only is it beautiful, it's also delicious.

Here commences our 12 days of Holiday Wines.

Winemaker Christian Tschida farms a whole 10 hectares of wines by the Neusiedlersee and employs o2 contact barrel aging and hands-off winemaking to produce delightful wines, like our first day's wine. Sandy gravel, schist and limestone soils provide the foundation for this Zweigelt/Cabernet Franc. Foot stomped and ungefiltert!

We're having a very @dmx holiday season here at LP. We hope you're enjoying yours, as well!

Yesterday, we had the opportunity to learn from both Colyn Truter of @arendsigwines and Romain Guille of @avalcider. Arendsig is a small-production winery in Robertson making incredible single vineyard juice. AVAL is here launching their new Brittany cider cans and kegs (keg stand, anyone?). Not to mention both the wines and cider are excellent complements to @revivalmn fried chicken ๐Ÿ˜‹

And, of course, the lovely Lu will be pouring @cantinamalabaila tomorrow at our November trade show. She's a wealth of information with INCREDIBLE wines to boot. Tomorrow, Nov. 1 @bachelorfarmer upstairs. This is not one to miss!

The Castelletto vineyard is always a theater of surprises...sometimes for the old vins, sometimes for the flowers... today for the grape ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ‘#beauty #grape #nebbiolo #castelletto #surprise #harvest2018 #roero #piedmont #instawine #instalife #winelife

Truly 'le Rouge parfait' (the perfect red, for all y'all non-French speakers). From Clos du Jaugueyron, this vin de France is light, floral, bright red fruit-driven and extremely chug-able. Freshly landed in MSP.

Cristiano has landed in Minnesota. As a brilliant, young winemaker, Cristiano has helped make a modern name for Nebbiolo in the Alto-Piemonte. Catch him at our trade show Thursday, Nov. 1st @bachelorfarmer upstairs from 2-4pm, and read about him in @wine_spectator. Link in bio
