So Italy, France and Spain have been turning out phenomenal vintage after phenomenal vintage since our national economy has tanked, and the good old Greenback has the buying power of a Bulgarian Lev. What is the confirmed oenophile to do?
The obvious answer to the question is to shop at Pastaworks. In an effort to make great wine selection affordable, we scour our importer's catalogs looking for quality and value. Yes, Barolo and Barbaresco can be expensive, but there are plenty of pleasurable nebbiolos on the market that will satisfy your palate without requiring a loan.
Of course, if you desire a Barolo or Barbaresco to go with tonight’s dinner we are more than happy to make a recommendation.
And have no fear, if your budget permits you to buy in quantity, Pastaworks offers a 10% discount on purchases of 6 to 11 bottles, and 15% on purchases of 12 bottles or more.
Many of our featured wines are also available by the glass (and bottle) at Evoe, Pastaworks' eat-in spot.

Arregi Txakoli de Getaria, 2012, 2012
Txakoli is the vinous choice in bars and restaurants throughout the Basque region. Arregi’s rendition is prototypical Txakoli, produced from the indigenous Hondarribi Zuri grape. Light, crisp, clean, yes, slightly spritzy, and bound to bring a smile to your face. The 2011 vintage has just landed so you can be assured that you are consuming the latest, freshest brightest Txakoli available.
We’ll pour this by the glass at Evoe while the supply lasts. Peter scored a handful of escanciadores at the San Sebastian airport so you’ll get the complete show. Don’t have an escanciador? Just ask, or worry not, just pull the bottle back as you pour the wine into your glass for full effect. Perfect with briny creatures, antipasti and/or just a seat in the sun. Aupa!

Cantina del Pino, 2010
Ripe plum and fresh cherry flavors are supported by mineral tanins which give this wine great elegance.
The wine is soft, succulent with a lovely long finish and good acidity. Cantina del Pino's Barbera production is quite small but we think that the wine ranks with among the very best from the region.

Correggia Roero Arneis, 2012
The late Matteo Correggia helped put the "left bank" of the Tanaro river in Piedmont on the vinous map.Long overshadowed by the "Langhe" region across the river, home to long lived Barolos and Barbarescos as well as Dolcettos and Barberas, the Roero, as the left bank is called, had an often deserved reputation for slurpable but forgettable wines.
Correggia and a handful of other producers believed that the sandy soils of the Roero were capable of more. This Roero Arneis shows that the region deserves its place on the map. Bright, fresh fruit, with hints of almonds. Well suited to fish dishes, appetizers, au gratin vegetables and fresh cheeses.

Produttori del Barbaresco Nebbiolo delle Langhe, 2010
Produttori del Barbaresco is all things nebbiolo. Located in the village of Barbaresco, the Produttori, a co-operative of more than 60 families, own and cultivate some the region's most expressive and important vineyards.
The 2009 Nebbiolo is a wonderful introduction to the variety. In particular, the vintage was warmer than normal, so the aromas and flavors of the wine are forward and approachable. Tar and roses, with excellent structure and balance. Pair with pasta dishes, braised meats and sharp cheeses.

Selvapiana Bucerchiale, 2009
Bucerchiale is Selvapiana's single vineyard riserva Chianti Rufina. Quite simple, it's one of Tuscany's and Italy's best wines, year after year (when it is produced). Opulent, yet elegant balanced, Bucerchiale expresses the full potential of sangiovese.
The newly arrived 2009 has received considerable press attention. The initial supply is quite limited but we are hoping for a new supply before the end of the year. This would be a fantastic bottle for your year end celebration meal.

Selvapiana Chianti Rufina, 2010
Selvapiana launched Pastaworks pursuit of all (wine) things Italian. A local restaurant welcomed us to the neighborhood with a bottle of 1977 Selvapiana Riserva. We discarded what few wines we had from California (we have added some since) and began our love affair with Italian wines.
Much has changed at Selvapiana since that fateful first taste---the riserva bottling is now a single vineyard wine, Bucerchiale---but the quality and consistency of the estate's wines continue. This is till our house Chianti of choice!

Zerbina Ceregio, 2010
Simply put, Fattoria Zerbina's Cristina Geminiani produces some of Italy's best wines. Ceregio is Zerbina's go to everyday Sangiovese. It has bright, focused forward fruit, redolent of cherries (thus Ceregio). It's balanced and pleasurable, and matches well with an array of typical Italian dishes---pastas, pizza, antipasti, grilled sausages and fowl---as well as domestic stand byes, aka hamburgers.
