Closed Sunday and Monday

Your Beaver Cleaver Wine Club

Your Beaver Cleaver Wine Club

$111.99

This edition of the Club references Montreal - a great food, wine, and hospitality town. There are a couple of recipes thrown in the 'zine that reference the city.

The wines include a great Touraine Sauvignon from less Pichiaux, as well le Brieau's Bubbly! and du Possible's Tout Bu, or Not Tout Bu red blend from the Languedoc.

The wine club is a collaboration with our friends at Ellē in the Mt Pleasant neighborhood of Washington DC, Charles Schneider of Free Run Wine Merchants. The name of the club comes from the song Mt Pleasant by the band Tuscadaro. Ellē loves Mt Pleasant as much as we love Takoma Park, and Mt Pleasant was the first neighborhood I lived in after catching a ride across the county in 1999, so it seems fitting.

Each selection will focus on wines made by people who share similar points of view about what differentiates special wines from the rest. Things have gotten a little too produced - whether it was country music in Nashville or wine in Napa. These wines are the ballads of the indie singer-songwriters of the wine world. Charles will be exploring these ideas, sometimes with the winemakers themselves in a ‘zine-like accompaniment to the pack, and Nick and I will likely ramble about some wine-adjacent topic.

The wines are usually highly allocated, meaning they're scarce and the club may be one of the only ways to get your hands on them. You and I won’t be able to order a case if we like it but these are the wines that we get excited about the chance to get to taste each year and this is our way to share them with our neighborhoods and community.

 

Cheers! - David
