Wine & Cocktail List
Here at NBC are primary focus is predominately Italian wines. Though most of this sector of the list derives from the north, we attempt to embellish central and southern areas of the country in search of wines that express the honesty and purity of the region and the varietal. We venture into France and other third world countries with the odd recognizable grape varieties that have supported these areas. Also, for those palettes weaned on the western hemisphere style, you will discover well reviewed-American staples from the west coast areas.
Our objective is to source wines that are made from indigenous grapes, from smaller estates, using natural growing methods that speak of the area they originate from. We search out small batch vineyards with native varietals, sourced from family–run properties (when possible) that focus on quality and tradition, and are offered at an affordable price. When at all possible, we challenge conventional representations of varietals by looking to lesser known regions other then the designated controlled area.
The goal is to enhance the dining experience by pairing an off-the-beaten path varietal you might never have heard, which is somewhat similar in style to what one is readily accustom to. This point of view has proven to be a great educational tool for both the staff and our guests. We would hope that our list has something to offer for everyone, from wine devotes to novices. Enjoy…
