Casa del Bosque Sauvignon Blanc
What: ABOUT CASAS DEL BOSQUE – in their own words:

Casas del Bosque is located 70 km from Santiago, Chile’s capital, and 30 km from the port of Valparaiso. It was conceived in 1993 to be a family boutique winery exclusively oriented to produce high quality wines. Casas del Bosque has its own vineyards in the Casablanca Valley, a privilege place for premium wines production. It guarantees that our entire grape production and all its treatment is carefully handled and controlled by ourselves, which a big strength.

Today, Casas del Bosque has 193 productive hectares of white vines Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, and red vines Merlot, Carmenere, Syrah and Pinot Noir. Besides, there are 13 hectares in the Rapel Valley, with more than 35 year old grapevines of our Cabernet Sauvignon.

Our production reaches 40.000 boxes per year. This is one of the reasons for being boutique: to work with small quantities makes it possible the rigorous treatment for the production of high quality wines, as we have stated. Nowadays, over the 80% of our production is exported to the most demanding markets abroad, and the rest is distributed on the local market, which turns us into an exporting winery mainly.

Uerige Dusseldorf Altftadt dat Lecker Droppke
From: Germany
Brewery: Uerige

Uerige Dusseldorf Altftadt Doppelsticke
What: From their website: “Since 2005, UERIGE has been brewing a special extra strong beer for the US market. Our DoppelSticke has an astonishing 8.5% abv and yet there’s no mistaking its taste: Dat is dat leckere Dröppke, as they say (that is the delicious droplet).
After the ‘gigantic herbal aroma of hops’ (Michael Jackson) that surprises the palate at the first tasting, aromatic sensations follow midway: caramelized sugar, malt and herbs, rich nuances of dark chocolate and rum, rounded off with a smooth and shimmering finish.
Apart from being sold in the USA, this rarity can only be obtained at our STICKUM bar – that is, if we have it in store. This beer also has a guaranteed minimum storage period of four weeks, but true aficionados take this to be a mere suggestion – they swear by storing their DoppelSticke in the cellar for another whole year. But then…!”
