In this category you will find wines that are the opposite of “classic.” I selected them because they are different, well-made and interesting. Such wines could feature a rare grape, or a grape not indigenous to a specific wine region. They could represent a fresh take on the wine-making process, such as aging in clay vases, or a longer skin maceration than usual. These are wines that have character and characteristics that take them “off the beaten track.”
And—who knows? —maybe you'll find your new favorite wine among them.
