Château Barbanau -- Provence


Domaine de Frégate
Located between the towns of St Cyr/Mer and Bandol placed on the hills overlooking sea and framed by the reek of Port d”Alon, Domaine de Fregate is exposed to the south and west, ensuring an ideal climate for regular and complete maturity of wine grapes. The vineyard has a surface of 30 hectares and is planted on clay and calcareous soils that are dry and rocky. The result is a harmonious wine that is characteristically bold but maintains a mild finish.  The varieties of grapes used are Mourvedre, Grenache and Cinsault giving both the red and rosé wines the characteristics very typical of the Bandol appellation.

Weingut Castelfeder -- Alto Adige

From the photo, you might think this wine region is in southern Germany or maybe Austria, but it's actually northern-most Italy in the area formerly known as Südtirol (a part of Austria until WWI), now known as Alto Adige. Bi-lingual and bi-cultural, it's Italy with a strong Austrian influence. On her first visit to Seattle, Ines Giovanett (daughter of Günther Giovanett, owner of the Castelfeder Winery) laughingly said: "I wear a dirndl! I eat knödel!" More on Ines & her family's winery>
