The palate is ripe and crisp on the nose, well balanced with sappy blackberry and blueberry fruit and impressive tension and structure on the finish, suggesting that this should give eight to ten years of pleasure. Very fine.”- Neil Martin, The Wine Advocate

“The 2016 Rully Marissou 1er Cru has a more exotic bouquet compared to its fellow Premier Crus: black cherries, hints of cassis and allspice. The palate is fresh with firm tannins that rein in that exuberance. Silky smooth in texture with a sweet and long finish. Excellent.”- 90 Neal Martin

Bushnell Vineyard has been closely related to the Pedroncelli family for over 50 years. Winery founder John Sr. purchased the property in 1943, and, at the time, it was planted to Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and Carignane. The vineyard was sold to son-in-law Al Pedroni in the 1950s and he tended the vineyard for over 40 years. Al’s daughter Carol Bushnell inherited the vineyard in the 1990s and she and her husband Jim now farm it. They grow
Zinfandel and Petite Sirah.

9.25.2018- Domaine Testut – Domaine Testut is a small family domaine now run by Cyril Testut. Cryil took over the reigns from his father in 1998 and has been making amazing Chablis with great precision. The majority of the Testut’s vineyards are located in the old historical section of Chablis – even those for his village-level Chablis – originally planted by the Cistercian monks. All the family’s vineyards are planted on Kimmeridgian soil with the majority of his vineyards located on the right bank of the Serein River.

unnamed (1)

“(from a .32 ha parcel; note that Testut uses a different spelling for the vineyard as they do not use the more typical “Grenouilles”; bottled November 2017). A distinctly cool and restrained nose somewhat grudgingly offers up notes of dried orchard fruit, oyster shell, citrus and a suggestion of iodine. The more tightly wound and mineral-driven flavors possess a bit more size and weight along with much better power on the sappy, concentrated and impressively intense and persistent finish. This too is really very good and worth considering. Drink 2023+.”– Allen Meadows, Burghound Issue 72

The wine has a pretty purple and ruby color and the nose is steeped with red berries and a hint of campfire aromas. We love this wine for its versatility and soft tannins, and boy-oh-boy does this wine pair well with the flavors of fall. The 2015 is being hailed as one of the best Loire vintages ever, especially in Chinon. Available through Cynthia Hurley French Wines

8.24.2018- Incredible Chateauneuf du Pape from Domaine Pignan This special cuvee is limited and the 2015 vintage is a must have for your cellar. Named after his two daughters, Frederic makes it from equal parts Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre. The Grenache vines are 130 years-old, the Mourvèdre vines are 100 years-old, and the Syrah vines are 80 years-old. After a long maceration of 30 days, the wine ages for 18 months in concrete, stainless steel and new oak barrels. Because of the concentration of fruit from the old vines, the new wood is not a dominating feature.

“Consisting of one-third each Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, the 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Coralie et Floriane is a spectacular wine. It’s a blend of lots from three different lieux-dits, each with a different soil type. The result, after aging in a mix of demi-muids, new barriques and stainless steel, is a rich, concentrated wine with standout aromas of bright berries, orange zest and spice. The velvety finish hints at vanilla, chocolate and spice, only slowly fading away. Drink 2017-2027.”- 95 Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate

6.15.2018- 2016 Henri Boillot Burgundy not to be missed!  “Once again Boillot has made some of the wines of the vintage and I highly recommend them to you”- Burghound These wines are benchmark white Burgundy worthy of your attention.


Henri Boillot is legendary and unparalleled in regards to both his skill as a winemaker and the superiority of his vineyard terroirs in the Côte de Beaune. Once again we are pleased to announce the incredible 2016 offerings from Henri Boillot. Given the hardships of the 2016 vintage – a year of severe frosts that reduced quantities and in some cases Boillot abandoned all hopes of making wine from some vineyard sites – what Boillot did produce was phenomenal. From the moment we tasted with him last summer at his domaine, we were chomping at the bit to bring this vintage stateside.
One of Boillot’s signatures is that he keeps his yields stunningly low – between 22 and 26 hectoliters per hectare. This is extraordinary because it’s about half the yield of his neighbors. He also used 350 liter barrels for the majority of his wines, with about 50% of them new for the 1er Crus.
“if there was one defining element of the 2016 whites, it is their purity and in this respect, they remind me a great deal of the 2010s at the same time in their evolution or perhaps like a slightly riper version of the 2014s..I like this vintage a lot and I think that it’s going to surprise people by how well it ages.” – Henri Boillot in Burghound June 2018

6.5.2018- Domaine les Hautes Cances 2017 Rosé Super limited concentrated, dry, french rosé with character

It’s no surprise that the Domaine les Hautes Cances Rosé was named as a one of the best Rosés in France. And it’s no surprise that the 2016 vintage received the top “Coup de Coeur***” rating from Guide Hachette des Vins, the oldest and most definitive wine guide in France. Distinctive and concentrated, we can thank the Astart’s for preserving their special vineyard plot of 50 year-old vines that are the source for this Rosé. Each and every flavorful sip is infused with those utterly delicious, earthy Rhone undertones that scent the air and the delicate hint of rose petals- trust us we’ve drunk more than our fair share. They have a small operation and make a limited quantity of Rosé. We grab most of it. If you’ve been on the hunt for a Rosé that’s fuller bodied and can stand up against hearty fair, don’t hesitate because the 2017 vintage is excellent! Avail in NJ exclusively through Cynthia Hurley French Wines

6.1.2018- Gaillard Faugères Les Moulins Blanc 2016 sculpted by high altitude and schist soil

Gaillard’s Les Moulins Blanc, a delicious white wine that comes from a region known mostly for red. Pierre Gaillard has long recognized the unique schist soils of Faugères and his wines from his Domaine Cottebrune are without a doubt top-notch. Les Moulins Blanc is a bright and fresh blend of Roussanne, Vermentino and Grenache Blanc that comes from a 1 ha plot. While the young vines lend the wine generous fruit flavors, it’s the high altitude and soil that impart this wine’s elegant mineral signature. Available in NJ exclusively through Cynthia Hurley French Wines.

5.30.2018- This article is a few years old, but still asks an important question… is wine tasting really junk science?

5.29.2018-  Pedroncelli Three Vineyards Cabernet remains as it has for decades… an amazing value! Wine of the Week: Highly Recommended, Press Democrat “This Cab definitely over-delivers with generous fruit and bright acidity. It’s layered with herbs and spiced and lightly toasted. It’s approachable and budget-savvy. It’s a cab for the people.” Peg Melnik 

Family Owned (91 years), Estate Grown, Hand Harvested, Barrel Aged Cabernet for under $20 a bottle! Try it against your favorite sub $20 CA Cab. Drink Pedroncelli and say to to corporate wine!



5.28.2018-  2015 Domaine de Mourchon Tradition  “11 Exciting French Reds for Under $30”- Wine Spectator “Solid, with a core of lightly steeped plum and blackberry fruit scored by a graphite edge that imparts a focused, slightly grippy feel through the finish. Grenache, Syrah and Carignan. Drink now through 2020. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 3,500 cases made.”–JM, Wine Spectator

Domaine de Mourchon is behind the village of Séguret about 300 meters up on a twisty little way. It is a modern beauty with shiny stainless steel tanks configured in a circle in one room. This winery is state of the art with table de tri for sorting every grape carefully to make sure there are no inferior ones in the final blend, and designed to use gravity to pamper the grapes as they transfer into the vat.  In the Rhone, there is a quality hierarchy. Only 18 special villages receive the honor to list the village name because of their superior terroir, higher quality and lower yields. Domaine de Mourchon is in one of these special villages so they are allowed to append their village name to the end of Côtes du Rhône Villages, as in, Côtes du Rhône Villages-Séguret.

Deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of red and black cherries, black plums and cassis with touches of charcuterie and tapenade, the medium-bodied palate offers great concentration with a firm frame of grainy tannins, finishing long and savory. Drink 2020-2038.”93 – Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate, Feb. 2018

3.27.2018- Jean-Pierre Large’s Morgon 2015 A wine of profound complexity and rich fruit!

The 2015 Morgon undergoes a semi-carbonic maceration and is raised in stainless steel. It has a fresh redcurrant and raspberry-scented bouquet. The palate is ripe and crisp on the nose, well balanced with sappy blackberry and blueberry fruit and impressive tension and structure on the finish, suggesting that this should give eight to ten years of pleasure. Very fine.”- 90 Neil Martin, The Wine Advocate

3.19.2018-  2014 Domaine les Hautes Cances Côtes du Rhône Villages – Very old vines, everyday prices, Superb Rhone Quality! Fresh dark red fruit mixed with the unique Rhone garrigues, the local scrub and herbs of rosemary and thyme, that’s beautifully balanced and concentrated. This is Provence at its best and, while it’s priced as an everyday wine, it delivers oh so much more. We had a bottle open for SIX days, and it was still singing beautifully! This wine is a real gem of the Cynthia Hurley French Wine portfolio. We’d love to sample it with you!

3.16.2018- Massive fraud uncovered in the Rhone!  This type of fraud needs be dealt with harshly. For it to take so long to be uncovered, shows no matter how adept a taster is, they still cannot correctly identify fake wine. Makes you wonder…

3.7.2018- We love all of Nick Goldschmidt’s wines, but Forefathers Cabernet Sauvignon Lone Tree Vineyard from Alexander Valley is among our favorites. Its not just one thing, it many things that makes this wine so special…  The vineyard sits on a very rare knoll 800ft  above the valley floor (cooler nights, longer hang time), planted on a (also rare) east facing slope (early day sun instead of hotter late day sun), 100% single vineyard, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, French oak, dry farmed (tiny berries), low yields (less than 2 tons/acre), small production. Need we say more? We will gladly put this wine up against any big name Alexander Valley wine! Let us sample this fantastic 2014 vintage with you.  #saynotocorporatewine


3.6.2018- We had a great time at NYC Vinexpo! We were very excited to meet Kate McKinlay from Domaine de Mourchon one of the star producers int the Cynthia Hurley Portfolio.

Consistent high praise from press, but more importantly by restaurants, retailers and consumers alike.

1.25.2018- Sonoma County Sustainable Wine Label:


1.24.2018- Eric de Suremain 2014 White Burgundies classic vintage, 1er Cru fruit, biodynamic


Eric de Suremain is about making great wine and he does so biodynamically. We scooped up a limited amount of his small production White Burgundies from his 1er Cru vineyards in Rully. Eric calls his cuvee made from his Rully 1er Cru Agneaux vineyards, L’incomprise, “the misunderstanding.” By harvesting early to maintain his quality standards, Eric lost the chance to use the 1er Cru name. Eric calls his Rully 1er Cru Pillot L’intemporelle because of the wine’s “timeless” nature sourced from vines planted in the 1920s. Both wines are from the 2014 vintage, which has been called classic. They have the power of the 2015s with the acidity of the 2013s. Needless to say, these are very limited. Dont miss this fantastic experience!


1.23.2018- 2016 Chelsea Goldschmidt Merlot now in stock! This has long been a favorite of ours and with good reason… amazing quality fruit from a single vineyard at a very reasonable price. Its cool to drink Merlot!! Check out the updated label. Available in NJ exclusively through Fedway Associates.



1.22.2018- 2016 Pedroncelli Russian River Pinot Noir. An amazing value! 100% Pinot, 100% French oak.  Available in NJ exclusively through Fedway Associates.



1.19.2018-  Couly-Dutheil La Coulee Automnale Cabernet Franc. Without a doubt, Couly Dutheil is one of the “stars” of our portfolio of producers. Here is their entry-level Cabernet Franc. The wine has a pretty purple and ruby color and the nose is steeped with red berries and a hint of campfire aromas. We love this wine for its versatility and soft tannins. The 2015 is being hailed as one of the best Loire vintages ever, especially in Chinon!

1.10.2018- Font de Notre Dame Gigondas 2015 “stunning”- exactly what we desire

“The 2015 Gigondas is a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, matured in concrete. It starts with a stunning display of garrigue and spice on the nose, followed by ripe cherry fruit on the full-bodied, creamy palate. There’s a touch of warmth to the lingering finish, so I would opt to drink this by 2025.” 92 points – Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate

1.8.2018-  Jean-Pierre Large’s Morgon 2014 One Grape, One Winemaker, One Very Fine Beaujolais Cru Jean-Pierre Large’s Morgon brings to the table a distinctively different expression of the juicy red fruit of the Gamay grape. Enhanced by the age of the vines and the depth of the vineyard soil of the Morgon terroir (factors which add weight and complexity to the wine), Jean-Pierre’s Morgon boasts darker, more robust flavors than your typical Beaujolais Cru and some find it has Pinot Noir-esque depth and complexity. All you need to do is put a slight chill on this wine and then serve.

1.2.2018-  2015 La Font de Notre Dame Gigondas “The 2015 Gigondas les Mourres is a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre, matured in concrete. It starts with a stunning display of garrigue and spice on the nose, followed by ripe cherry fruit on the full-bodied, creamy palate. There’s a touch of warmth to the lingering finish, so I would opt to drink this by 2025.”-  92 Wine Advocate Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

The palate is ripe and crisp on the nose, well balanced with sappy blackberry and blueberry fruit and impressive tension and structure on the finish, suggesting that this should give eight to ten years of pleasure.

11.30.2017-  Keep on pushing ahead!


11.29.2017- Dom. Cheysson Beaujolais Cru Chiroubles 2015 a “go-to pour”!  For over 20 years Jean-Pierre Large, the Beaujolais Cru master behind Domaine Cheysson, has built a strong reputation for this lighter-bodied red that constantly delivers plenty of fruit and gets attention from those in the know. The 2015 vintage is outstanding for Cru Beaujolais wines.

11.27.2017- The life of a broker… sometimes even when you do all the right things, you are still sent packing. Wineries are sold and often the new owners don’t have the same vision or understanding for the relationships that helped build their brand. Being in business for yourself is never easy, but this is a lesson to always have a backup plan and never let relationships cloud your judgement. My goal now is not to punish them for ending our agreement… that’s just business, but to find competing brands at the same wholesaler to go up against theirs.  Nothing personal… just business like this two sentence letter.  While it would be awful to see all the hard work we have done evaporate into nothing, it would be gratifying to know we were the linchpin that made the brand a success in the market. We wish them best of luck in their future endeavors.

Info redacted out of courtesy



11.22.2017- Pomerols are celebrated as the best expression of Merlot. This humble and charming Right Bank commune, dominated by clay-rich soils, transforms Merlot into rich and smooth wines that are among the most sought after Bordeaux. Château Tour Robert delivers the Pomerol goods with its very dark red (almost) black appearance and aromatic nose complete with ripe plums and black fruits. Velvety textured with a long finish – this 100% Merlot has some age, so you can pop the cork tonight. This wine is arriving next week and we received a limited number of cases. Available through Cynthia Hurley Wines.



11.21.2017- Domaine Mourchon named #52 on The Wine Spectator top 100! We hate to say we told you so, but with all the great press and the amazing quality of this wine for the money, we know this would be a top 100 wine!  Unfortunately we are now sold out.  Good new is that the 2015 is on its way and it was an even better vintage!




11.20.2017- Another Great Thanksgiving suggestion is Cru Beaujolais. The flavors are perfect for the wide range of food served. We’re not talking Nouveau here! We have many great selections! Here’s two of our favs:

Domaine Lagneau is a small, top-notch producer in Beaujolais. This black-fruited 100% Gamay Cru Beaujolais offers concentrated flavors thanks to 70-year-old vines and pink granite soil. With mild tannins, mineral, spice, and aromatic black cherry and black current flavors it has everything to make it a food-friendly wine that delivers all sorts of dining possibilities. Steven Spurrier 90 Cellar Beaujolais selection:


Cheysson Chiroubles 2015 Chiroubles 90 Wine Enthusiast
From one of the leading estates in this cru appellation, the wine is structured and firm and likely to age well. With black cherry and red-currant fruits it is crisp although with its solid texture it should broaden out. Drink this wine from 2018.

cheysson chiroubles



11.16.2017-  Oh what to drink for Thanksgiving? So many great choices but we re partial to Zinfandel! Pedroncelli Mother Clone Zinfandel & Bushnell Zinfandel are two fantastic Zin’s! Join Pedroncelli in celebrating their 90th anniversary and raise a glass this holiday to family, tradition and great wine!

11.14.2015- We had a great saff training and consumer tasting for Wegmans newest store in Montvale. The wines always show so well and it was a great success!



11.13.2017 Nick Goldschmidt takes a close look at the Charming Creek (Hilary Goldschmidt) vineyard:

11.10-2017-  The weather is cooling down, so its time to drink Port! Pedroncelli Four Grapes uses only authentic Portuguese varietals from Pedroncelli’s estate vineyards.  This wine will stand toe to toe with any LBV!





11.9.2017-  Château Villars, Fronsac 2012 great fruit, great mouthfeel, great price!

“One of the top Fronsacs year in and year out, this blend of 76% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon reveals a gorgeous, deep ruby/purple color and sweet blueberry and blackberry fruit. Nice minerality and a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel make for a top-notch Fronsac in this vintage. The color is a healthy ruby/purple and the wine capable of lasting at least 10-15 years.” – 90pts Robert Parker,The Wine Advocate

11.8.2017- 2015 Pedroncelli Mother Clone Zinfandel limited edition retro label!





11.7.2017- *New* Tour Campanets Bois des Fées 2016 organic white wine from the hills of Provence. Clean, clear, fresh and refreshing with aromatics that will enchant and delight, this white wine from Provence is a stunner. We just had to import it. Made from 70% Vermentino (locally called Rolle) and 30% Ugni Blanc this wine has citrus, passion fruit and almond flavors and it has zip.

10.12-2017 CA fires are still a long way from containment. Unfortunately the losses will continue to mount. Keep the people in these areas in your thoughts!


10.11.2017-  In a recent study, consumers still perceive cork a a superior closure. While the article doesn’t mention the type of wine consumer surveyed, it is still interesting. Those of us who know already understand which closure is actually superior.

Dollar-for-dollar, the Pedroncelli wines consistently offer both character and quality for their prices, something consumers should never forget.”  Robert Parker

9.18.2017- Brand loyalty has become one of the real challenges of our business. Not just amongst consumers, but the trade as well. People are so hyper focused on what’s new and trending, that customers sometimes forget the brands that have for decades consistently offered quality and value. While Pedroncelli’s Richard Morehouse was in town for the Fedway Fall Show, we had an instore tasting with the Burkes Wine in Sparta, NJ. Randy Burke (pictured right) has been a loyal supporter of Pedroncelli wines for over 30 years.  Trends come and trends go, but customers like this are worth their weight in gold.


9.15.2017- Join us today 4-7pm at Burkes Wine in Sparta NJ We will be tasting wines from Pedroncelli Winery with Richard Morehouse. He will be tasting great wine and telling stories of the Pedroncelli’s 90 year history in Sonomas Dry Creek.

What makes this wine special? Its a rare single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. Most of the popular cookie cutter NZ SB’s huge quantities from very large vineyards and sourced fruit. Boulder Bank is only a 1,765 production from a very unique singe vineyard.  One of only five vineyards in the world below sea level and the only vineyard in the world grown in high salinity soil.

8.17.2017- Chateau Puy Galland is one of our favorite “Bordeaux for Tonight” reds.

April 10- Dual 90 point reviews for our two Great New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs from Nick Goldschmidt:




2017 Marks Pedroncelli’s 90th Anniversary
Still family owned and operated in the Dry Creek!

To mark this special anniversary, Jim Pedroncelli is being honored at the 3rd Annual sponsored by Sonoma County Vintners. This honor is for those who have left an indelible stamp on Sonoma County winegrowing. To mark the honor, Pedroncelli has a very special one off  small lot for their Barrel Auction. See Julie’s press release below:


April 2017- Ever wonder what a Jeroboam looks like compared to a 750ml bottle? Well wonder no more! These very limited bottles are shipped directly from the winery where they have been impeccably stored in their cellars.  This beauty is a 1992 Couly Dutheil Baronnie Madeleine Cabernet Franc. We are lucky enough to have sold this, but even luckier to have been invited to its uncorking later this month. I look forward to sharing my review.


A limited number of these bottles are available contact us for details.

New Press for the legendary Pierre Gaillard!


Available in NJ exclusively through Cynthia Hurley Wines contact us for details.

Friday March 31 2017- We conducted two great Pedroncelli seminars for the Fedway Associates Gateway North & South sales teams. The wines always show so well and are deserving of your attention!  Buy Pedroncelli and say no to corporate wine!



2015 Guintrandy Côtes du Rhône Villages-Visan 

Fantastic Organic CdR with miniscule yields from 80 year old vines!

93 points “Highly Recommended” – Decanter “Cuilleras is the sixth generation to tend this organic estate. Old Vines, low yields, hand harvesting and no destemming contribute to a complex, structured and succulent expression of this underrated commune in the north of the region. 93. Drink 2017-2021.”- Matt Walls, Decanter

2015 Domaine Cheysson Chiroubles  

Our wonderful Beaujolais from Cynthia Hurley has just received a nice write up in The Boston Globe !

Ellen Bhang, Globe Correspondent, features Domaine Cheysson Chiroubles 2015 in her Sunday’s Boston Globe article and selects it as her “go-to pour.” 
Jean-Pierre Large is the Beaujolais Cru master behind this exceptional (and perennially popular) Domaine Cheysson Chiroubles, which we have imported for more than 15 years. Jean-Pierre Large’s motto is “Fruit, glorious fruit” and this wine bursts with vibrantly fresh, juicy fruit and a finish with finesse.

Pedroncelli Winery 
90 years in the Dry Creek 


From the oldest Cabernet vineyard in the Dry Creek

Wisdom Longevity instills it in each generation. Sensing the right varietal and aspect of the vines is borne of a lifetime tilling the soil. Discerning and experienced hands craft the wine from vine to barrel to bottle and when these elements come together it is called Wisdom. A tribute to John Pedroncelli.

Vineyard Background Located 2 miles west of the winery, we purchased the property in the 1960s. Comprised of 5 acres on the west slope of the Dry Creek Valley along West Dry Creek Road. Planted to Cabernet Sauvignon since 1965, a recent replanting included the addition of Malbec.  50 years of growing Cabernet on in this soil, in this microclimate brings unparalleled Wisdom. The Wine 2012 was an ideal growing season with mild temperatures and opportune warming trends to ripen grapes to full maturity. Yields and fruit quality were exceptional.

2012 marks the inaugural vintage of this wonderful Estate Cabernet. Full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with aromas of black plum, warm spice and currants. The rich flavors of ripe plum, berry and black pepper are woven with mellow tannins and great acidity. Like all wines from Pedroncelli, this is a remarkable value!
