First and foremost, Winemonger is a wine importer.
Many of our wines are offered by the best restaurants in the United States. Ranging from the fantastic hole-in-the-wall eatery you have never heard of, to Le Bernardin in New York or the inimitable Slanted Door Restaurant in San Francisco, we are proud to count America's top culinary establishments among our best customers.
In the realm of a red Zinfandel, Cabernet Franc or Malbec, this baby is widely planted around Austria and is used to produce dry, fruity red wines with fine spices backed by blackberry and cherry aromas and tones of liquorice. It buds early, ripens late, doesn't like the cold, and when it's unripe, it gets pretty vegetal. All that said, it is a very tasty, lighter drinking red whose firm tannins make it worthy of aging. Pairs great with BBQ. Winemakers in Washington state are giving it a go, where it is known as Lemberger.
