Obikwa Sauvignon Blanc
South Africa 2017
Ripe gooseberry and crisp, green apple flavors on the palate, backed by tropical fruits and a hint of grassiness that lingers long on the aftertaste.
This is an elegant but crisp wine from the Western Cape region of South Africa.
Urbano Cabernet Sauvignon
Castilla, Spain 2016
A deep garnet-colored wine, this Cabernet has a nose of lush raspberry, accented with balsamic. Full, but smooh, with a solid backbrone and a touch of spice at the end.
Castilla is the region-wide Vino de la Tierra title for Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain. This catch-all VT encompasses nearly all of the wines in the region that fall outside the requirements of the DOs with which it overlaps, such as La Mancha. This may be because of vineyard location, aging periods, grape varieties etc as the restrictions on DO wines are much stricter than those imposed on VT wines. The VT classification allows producers more freedom in their viticulture and viniculture. The Castilla VT title was created in.
Castilla-La Mancha occupies the vast southern half of the Meseta Central (central Iberian plateau), the northern half being occupied by Castilla y Leon. This elevated plain is harsh, as temperatures are extreme throughout the year. Despite this, vines have been grown in the region since Roman times and were widespread during the Middle Ages, when Catholic monks were the biggest producers of wine.

Simply put, we love wine. And we don't think all wine tastes the same. Winemakers who source their grapes from local vineyards, who tend the vines themselves, who bottle at their estates, and who manage their own operations care about every step in the process. The results are both better wine in the bottle and less of an imprint on the planet.
Small production, artisanal wines and spirits do not have to be expensive. We work with many importers and distributors to find the most representational wines and craft liquors that aren't painful on the pocket. We even have an entire wall dedicated to wines at or under $14!
And we promote local producers as well. At Acme you will find an array of Brooklyn made spirits and New York State wines.
