Maipe Malbec 2015

Complex plum, fig, strawberry with a hint of spice are balanced with smooth tannins for a distinguished finish. Pour a glass with a hearty steak, and you’ve got yourself a meal!

Rocheterrier Bordeaux 2014

This Rocheterrier Bordeaux is a bordeaux in it’s truiest since. Medium bodied, dry and savory, this wine speaks for itself. Pair it with lamb chops and chutney for a sophiscated pairing.

San Carlos Catena Cabernet Franc

Full and rich with flavors of cassis, raspberries, black pepper and oregano, it finishes bright and fresh and leave you wanting another glass (or two). Pair with hearty stews or Latin dishes with a bit of heat!

Chateau Lafayette Reneau Cuvee Rouge

This Cuvee Rouge is smooth and delightfully blended, and a standout red from the Finger Lakes. Have a glass with your take-out pizza, and thank us later.

Small Gully Mr. Black Concoction Red Blend

Mr. Black’s Concoction is far from being snake oil. Black raspberry and cherry fruits mixed with a spicy pepper give it energy and balance. Rich tannins and silky mouth-feel leave you wishing you had grabbed another bottle!

Whether winter is your thing, or you’re more of a “hibernate until Spring” type, enjoy the season full of awesome reds!


Kelsey is new to the Corning, NY region – but certainly not new to wine! She enjoys trying new recommendations and developing her palate while immersing herself in the Finger Lakes wine culture. When she isn’t working as a marketing consultant for vim & co., she enjoys exploring the Corning sites and spending her evenings with her husband watching Netflix (with wine of course!).
