While the vineyard site has changed hands within the de la Roque family since the 13th century, this Languedoc winery undoubtedly remains one of the oldest family-run vineyards in all of France. For those unfamiliar with the wines of the Languedoc, the A.O.C. shares the same red grape varieties as much of the Rhône: Mourvédre, Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Carignan. This particular wine is mostly Grenache blended with smaller quantities of Syrah and Mourvédre. The chewy, dark red fruit of this wine is heightened by its fermentation in cement tanks and thanks to this lack of oak aging, this wine remains delicate and lively vintage after vintage. Whether you’re looking for a pairing for spicy chicken tacos or a rib eye steak, this surprisingly versatile red fits the bill. Finding any wine imported by the legendary Kermit Lynch is a challenge in many stores, but a Kermit Lynch import under $20 is a particular rarity in 2017. Grab a bottle while you can!

What People Are Saying
I’ve lived on the UWS for 20+ years and long ago had pledged my allegiance to one of the old stalwart liquor stores in the neighborhood. But something made we want to give Amsterdam Wine Co a shot. I did…. and I’ve never looked back. Great selection, great prices and amazing service. It’s my new “go-to.”

I like wine but I don’t have the budget to drink great wines as often as I’d like. The selection at Amsterdam Wine Co. is so well chosen that I feel like I’m always drinking above my means. Great addition to the neighborhood.

After spending most of my nights selling wine to locals and tourists alike, it’s a relief to be able to walk into a local wine store that can give back that same level of attention and passion. Amsterdam Wine Co. will always be my go to spot on the Upper West Side for a great conversation and that perfect bottle of wine.
