We're taking a quick break starting Friday, December 22. Deliveries resume on Wednesday, December 28. Have a great holiday!
Exclusivity: We carry a unique and highly edited selection of quality wines not available elsewhere in the Washington DC area.
why first vine?
Convenience: You can order online anytime day or night, and we'll deliver to your door at a time convenient for you. We also ship to 36 states.
Value: first vine is an importer and a retailer. This allows us to offer our wines at lower prices than other non-importing retailers charge for comparable quality wines from the same region by eliminating the distributor step from the sales chain.
Pairing well with food: The European wines we've selected pair particularly well with nearly all foods and also have sufficient character to be consumed without accompaniment. Many "New World" wines are delicious alone, but are difficult to pair with foods.
Knowledge of and Passion for the Wines: We've developed personal relationships with wine producers in France, Spain, and Italy, and use that knowledge to impart a sense of place to the product, as well as suggesting foods that these wines complement particularly well.
Terrasses de Perret Muscat Sec
Muscat is a grape often found in sweet dessert wines. But when the sugar is all fermented, the wine is dry. In tastings we recommend that people smell the wine before they sip it -- and this one has all the beautiful aromas of a dessert wine, but not the sugar. A complex, beautiful wine to pair with all kinds of foods. And only $12!
