We are very excited to re-launch the KOT Selections Quarterly Newsletter. This will be released seasonally, and will propound a range of topics. In each issue, we will introduce our latest arrivals for those of you who may have missed them; there will be a lengthier profile on a featured winegrower in our portfolio, followed by some examples of the critical reception our wines have been welcomed with. We will attempt to lighten the mood with some observations on the world around us, but also wrap it up neatly with a focus on our upcoming events in Singapore.
Do sign up to our mailing list to receive our newsletter directly in your Inbox. If you missed this edition, please feel free to contact us to request your soft copy.
With over 50 years of combined experience in the wine world, Alex Krause and John Locke are doing what they do best at Birichino – producing delicious, joyful wines from historic, family-owned vineyards along California’s Central Coast. Their choice of cool, marine sites, year-round involvement with farmers and sensitive, low-intervention cellar work result in a breezy Mediterranean style – vibrant, lithe and fun (‘birichino’ means mischievous in Italian). Salute!
Ehren Jordan saw his future in archeology, and it was only when he got a student job in a wine shop that he converted to wine. We will be forever thankful that he did, and it may go some way to explaining where he exhumes inspiration for his nuanced wines.
Ehren is also the brains, beauty and brawn behind the Day Zinfandel project, which we likewise encourage you to look into.
Cathy Corison has been firmly standing her ground in her mission to make “The wine in my head that needed to get out.” There have been times when she’s gone against the grain in order to do what is best for the grapes (and ultimately, for the wines), but her low-volume, high-fidelity wines stand out as an embodiment of KOT Selections’ values.
