Contrade.  Our best value is back.

We never seem to buy enough.   Contrade is back by popular demand and at the same eye-popping low prices.  New for this time is a Rose’ offering to go along with the red and white wines.  Contrade is made by the Falvo brothers of Masseria Li Veli in Puglia, in far southern Italy.  This off the beaten path region in Italy is home to some terrific values. 

Negroamaro is a native varietal to the Puglia region and is little recognized outside this part of Italy.  These wines are pop-and-pour, easy-drinking, and full of flavor, terroir,  and impressively complex for under $10. 

Contrade wines represent amazing value and are worthy of your attention.
