Bryce's Wine Odyssey is a testament to our co-founder's enduring love for both nostalgia and novelty. Just like a parent can't pick a favorite child, Bryce finds it equally challenging to choose a favorite wine. However, the wine journalist has always had a strong affinity for Riesling, and the bottle included in this box perfectly represents that sentiment. This wine encapsulates everything Bryce adores about Riesling: its pure clarity and impeccable balance. It manages to be simultaneously light and refreshing, yet remarkably concentrated and complex.
For enthusiasts of floral white wines, Bryce highly recommends the Moschofilero. Each sip of this wine captures the essence of a margarita, with its vibrant citrus notes on the palate—lime zest and grapefruit—complemented by a hint of sea spray on the finish, making it an easy addition to any wine lover's collection.
However, no journey through Bryce's Wine Odyssey would be complete without tasting Marof's Rdeča. This particular wine holds a special place in Bryce's heart, as it was one of the first wines introduced in the Vinalia portfolio. Bryce's week-long expedition to Slovenia left an indelible impression of the country's impressive wine scene, and Marof's Rdeča was no exception. We hope that these wines will ignite the same passion for exploration in you as they did in Bryce, offering a taste of history and terroir in every sip.
Richer in tannin and fuller in spice and earth tones than one might expect from other clones of Pinot Noir, this Berligou immediately demonstrates its royal pedigree with an intricate mélange of fresh, violet pastille, and forest floor notes that evoke the crunch of fallen leaves. Complex and long, yet elegant and deceptively inviting, this Berligou is as refreshing in the summer as it is comforting underneath a blanket, curled up against the fire.
This Cabernet Franc from Cave Spring proves why so many winegrowers on the Niagara Peninsula rightfully find so much potential for this grape in Ontario. The wine illicits all the classic earthy and floral Cabernet Franc notes—crushed violets, cracked pepper, tobacco leaf—punctuated by generous raspberry and black plum flavors. Framed by suave, velvety tannins and elongated with a bright, dark-fruited acidity, the wine demonstrates length and ageworthiness.
If a margarita were a wine, this would be it. Soft jasmine, lemon blossom, and white rose aromas mingle with brighter citrus notes on the palate—lime zest, grapefruit, Meyer lemon. A kiss of sea spray ends the wine on a crisp and salty note. But don’t let its charms fool you – this wine is highly complex and can age for many years. So, if you still have some bottles by autumn, fret not—they’ll have plenty of life ahead.
With laser-like precision and luminous, beaming acidity, this Riesling from Cave Spring is the quintessential expression of Canada’s Niagara Peninsula. Notes of citrus oil, frozen pear, and rounded river rocks encapsulate the wine’s crystalline purity. At once light and refreshing, while also concentrated and complex, the wine’s brightness and great length make this a Riesling for all seasons.
While fresh and laden with crunchy berry flavors, this Slovenian red blend is deceptively structured, ageworthy, and complex, revealing itself in time. You get all the classic earthiness that Blaufränkisch always delivers with notes of fallen leaves, fresh soil after the rain, paprika and soft spices. The splash of Cabernet adds some extra herbaceousness—tobacco, pencil shavings, graphite—as well as some tannic muscle.
Tactile and savory, this Godello from the prestigious Bierzo region demonstrates the tremendous complexity of the best Spanish white wines. With a soft beeswax texture and gripping mineral character, the wine enjoys fuller-bodied notes of ripe pear, honeydew, citrus oil, and green apple skin. Ample and long finished, the wine continues to evolve in the glass and demonstrates the ability to age with grace.

With a commitment to sustainability and strict industry standards, Cave Spring Vineyard has distinguished itself as a producer of high-quality wines.

With nearly two centuries of winegrowing under their belt, the Poiron-Dabin family’s roots in the Loire Valley run deep. The family’s history as vignerons is documented as early as 1858, though it remains likely that their experience in the area extends back further. The modern winery traces its origins to the marriage of Jean Poiron to Thérèse Dabin in 1962. Jean and Thérèse each retired around the turn of the millennium, passing the baton to their two sons, who continue to steward the estate today.
Among the most celebrated wineries in Eastern Slovenia, Marof is also perhaps the most ambitious in the Prekmurje region and its Goričko subzone. The winery is a collaboration between founder Stanko Polanič, who dreamed of demonstrating the tremendous potential of this long overlooked region, and Uroš Valcl, who grew up in his mother’s vineyard and joined Marof in 2009 for its third vintage. Valcl and Polanič steward their land with a gentle hand, seeking minimal intervention in the vineyard and cellar, where they focus on both native Slovenian and international grape varieties.
With an unwavering commitment to winemaking, the Merayo family proudly holds deep-rooted connections in the world of wine. They served as proprietors of Bodegas Merayo, one of the region's most distinguished wineries until 1989. In response to the changing times of the late 1990s, the family made a resolute
decision to reclaim their roots. In 2010, Pedro Merayo founded Bodegas y Viñedos Merayos and resumed winemaking on their ancestral estate, marking the culmination of two decades dedicated to the recovery and maintenance of his vineyards.
Regarded as one of the very finest interpreters of Moschofilero in the whole of Greece, Bosinakis has been a family affair since its inception in 1992. The new generation took over in 2009, when brother-sister team Sotiris and Katerina Bosinakis took the reins of the winery. Among their contributions was a renewed and passionate focus on quality. The siblings will also gleefully share a vertical of Moschofilero going back several years, showing that contrary to certain assumptions, Moschofilero has the structure and complexity to age with grace.
