Three Bottles, One Shop: Rosso Wine Shop in Glendale

The L.A. Weekly's Besha Rodell came by Rosso Wine Shop to see what we do. And in case you missed the coverage from earlier this week, here is a direct link to the article. The feature covers a bit of our origin and then zeroes in on some of my favorite wines.

The wines I chose represent what I like to call "country" wines; and they are precisely what we like to turn people on to.

Raj Parr Pours Sandhi Wines at Rosso Wine Shop

In March we had a very special Supper Club with Raj Parr of Sandhi wines.

Sandhi is a small production California winery focusing on select vineyards from the Santa Rita Hills in Santa Barbara County and was founded in 2009 by Rajat Parr, the wine director for Michael Mina Restaurants, Charles Banks, the former owner of Jonata and Screaming Eagle, and esteemed winemaker, Sashi Moorman. Sandhi is dedicated to making wines of finesse, minerality, acidity, structure and balance.

The Los Angeles Times S. Irene Virbila was in attendance and wrote a review of the event. Click here for her feature story.
