Cool Off with Summer Whites from New York Vintners

Dear New York Vintners Friends,
 

As the first heat wave of the season hit, we all found relief in cold glasses of our favorite whites. We might have argued over which wine to drink under the circumstances: a super-crisp mineral white from a mountainous region, a bottle of Prosecco, a steely Chassagne-Montrachet, or something comparable from Burgundy. But we all agreed that there’s no shortage of great possibilities for satisfying refreshment.

At New York Vintners, we stock a wide range of terrific white wines for every palette. Consider our new arrivals and learn about an up-and-coming Burgundy domaine, all featured below. Plus, register now for An Evening of Bubbles with Champagne Ayala, right here at New York Vintners on June 24th.

Cheers!

FEATURED PRODUCER


Mix any 12 featured Domaine Bizot wines and enjoy a 10% discount.

Domaine Bizot
Based in Vosne Romanée, Jean-Yves Bizot took over his family’s small domaine nearly a decade ago. Over the years, he has severely cut back yields, chaptalisation, and sulphur levels. Bizot ages his wines in 100% new oak with no racking, fining, or filtration. Production remains extremely limited, and his wines develop wonderful body with age.

Arriving soon is a sizeable allocation by Burgundy standards of the last of Bizot’s 2005 vintage and of the newly released 2006. New York Wine Co. is proud to offer these spectacular wines.
