Meet the CoolVines Wine Geek! He’ll guide you toward – or away from! – wines that have a unique flavor profile: intentionally oxidized wines, earthy, stinky wines, wines with a bit of fritz on the tongue. Look for him throughout our web site, and on the shelves in our stores, to point the way toward these geeky wines.

Yellow+Blue. When you mix the two together, you get green, as in environmentally conscious, forward thinking and committed to positive change. With the high cost of fossil fuel driving up the cost of shipping, they saw the price of good imported wines rising out of range for the average buyer. In their search for a way to lower these costs for quality-conscious wine drinkers, they found a solution that is also great for the environment. Then they got a little “greener” by partnering with organic wineries that use only traditional, natural winemaking processes. The result? Great tasting, certified organic wine that’s better for the planet and available at a great price.
Salta lies in the northwest of Argentina, in the foothills of the mighty Andes Mountain range. Argentine wine makers have embraced the area for the dry weather; as well as its warm days and cool nights. The best vineyards sit at about 1,700 meters above sea level, which favors the local grape Torrontes. There are currently experimental vineyards located even higher in the region.
