Best Beverage Welcomes New Wines and Spirits

By August 25, 2020Rhode Island, Top News

Best Beverage has added new domestic and imported offerings to its Rhode Island portfolio. The 2019 Melon de Bourgogne by Lieu Dit comes from the Santa Ynez Valley of Central California. The winery specializes in Loire Valley varietals and styles. Its latest release of the 2019 Melon de Bourgogne is made from 100% Muscadet and is a full-body expression with high acid and flavors of Key lime pie, citrus, apple and a salty brine note that is well paired with local oysters, as featured on the label. From a certified organic and biodynamic practicing vineyard in the hills of Umbria, 2019 Cinino by Agri Segretum is a Sangiovese Pet Nat. The winery specializes in native varieties of the region and its “Cinino” – which, in the local dialect, means “tiny one” as it is its youngest wine – is made from 100% Sangiovese. Naturally sparkling, it contains some sediment, or “col fondo,” in the bottle, with no added sulfites. Bèrto Dry Gin, the first spirit ever imported by Kermit Lynch, is a pot-stilled dry gin from the northern region of Italy in Piedmont. It is a London Dry Gin with a classic juniper profile. The Bèrto family-run distillery also makes a unique sweet white vermouth, Aperitiv dla Tradission, and a sweet red vermouth, Ross da Travaj, each also available in Rhode Island.
