New US Arrivals with Mise Wines
Maryland winery, Old Westminster, recently made their wine debut in Massachusetts! The Baker family is producing Maryland wines with an ethos parallel to all natural European winemakers: hand harvested grapes, indigenous yeasts, and minimal filtrations and use of sulfites. Read more about the family wine affair in the Washington Post here!
On Saturday, Jackson is pouring Old Westminster’s sparkling Albariño, as well as their newest canned wine! Sold in single 375ml cans, this juice is made with the same care, and with the same quality fruit, as their bottled wines. It's the most natural canned wine around town. Buy up these cans for a hike on a sunny day, or a Sunday picnic!
