About: Sneak Peak with Donati at Newly Renovated MetroWines

Join us on Friday, May 6th from 5:00 to 6:30 for a wine tasting with Adam Chesia of Donati Family Vineyard and Juniper Cooper of Johnson Brothers /Mutual Distribution to celebrate the renovation of MetroWines on Charlotte Street. MetroWines continues to offer Sisters Forever Chardonnay, Claret and Cabernet Sauvignon from Donati Family Vineyard and the popularity and customer support for these wines has never stopped!

Since opening the doors in 2013, MetroWines has held to the philosophy that wine is about food, family, friends and community. "Over the years, we have become friends and family with our customers and sought to benefit the community through service, employment and support," says John Kerr, co-owner of MetroWines. "But that's not all of the story!"

MetroWines has also established strong relationships with wineries. The retailer sits in the middle of the process selecting wines from various wineries for their customers. "So, to celebrate this new beginning made possible by our customers, we have asked Adam Chesia, East Coast Sales Manager for Donati Family Vineyard, to join us, to pour their wines, to tell their family story." 

"And it's not just about buying and selling," says Kerr. "When COVID struck, Donati sent us a case of hand sanitizers! Now that's family."  

Family owned since 1989, Donati tells an American Wine Story from its founding by Italian immigrants through to being one of the first wineries with national distribution to trust their business to women winemakers!

January Focus Group: All 4 Winners!

L'Alpage Chasselas, Mont sur Rolle, Switzerland 2020, $23

L’Alpage is a custom cuvée selected by Eric Solomon to capture the pure minerality and refreshing qualities of Chasselas grown in specific terroirs along the upper Rhône river banks. This style of Chasselas is a friendly, thirst-quenching wine perfect for after a day of hiking or snowshoeing and always welcome with cave-aged Gruyère, raclette, or fondue. Initially, we launched this cuvée from vineyards in the Valais under the local name Fendant, but with the 2020 vintage, we discovered a plot of Chasselas in the village of Mont-sur-Rolle in La Côte – a singular place with a quintessentially Swiss vista taking in Lac Léman and the Alps.
