Market Wines is an independent wine shop focused on artisan winemakers and friendly, knowledgeable service. We believe that everyone deserves great wine at a fair price. So rather than buying the same wines you find at other stores, we go the extra mile and find our own. That means we travel the world looking for wines that reflect our values. We hunt for small, family-run wineries that grow grapes organically or sustainably; wines that reflect the regions they come from because they are made by a farmer’s hand. We source wines that are distinct, compelling, authentic and above all - great value!
By working directly with our producers we are able to develop close relationships and a deeper understanding of the wines we sell. Our staff are passionate and always strive to put the best wine possible on your table. To do that, we read, travel, taste and learn everything we can about wine and the people who make our unique selections. When you come to Market Wines you can feel the difference - our wines and people are a direct reflection of the values we hold. But the best part about shopping at Market Wines? You always leave with a bottle of wine that you’ll love.
2016 Castello D’Alba Red – Douro, Portugal - $16.95 – This is a perfect example of the kind of wine you’ll find at Market Wines. Portugal is the ideal place to hunt for great value, with so many unique indigenous varietals to explore, you can always find something new and exciting. This is a dry red wine made from Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional, the same grapes they use to make Port. Together they deliver a rich and plush wine with bright raspberry fruit and a touch of rustic spice. Try this with red meats hot off the grill or just serve it up to friends and family on the back deck. Either way its sure to hit the spot.
