This month’s theme: Sipping underneath the stars
Wine drinking doesn’t need to feel stuffy — nor does it even need to be done indoors or out of a proper glass. For August, consider refreshing wines that can accompany all of your outdoor summer outings, particularly those spent underneath the stars. Eric’s selection of wines all have the kind of crisp, light buoyancy that makes for pleasurable outdoor sipping, from an Italian red that skirts between savory and fruit-driven attributes to a white blend with a little skin contact that reminds us of both tropical fruit, and gummy bears. These summertime wines are pure pleasure — just as the season should be.
This month’s curator: Eric Moorer
It’s likely you have come across D.C.-based wine shop Domestique, because even if you aren’t a local of the District, you’ve probably perused its online shop or read about it on various natural wine shop best-of lists. And if you know Domestique, you definitely know Eric Moorer. Eric is the director of sales at Domestique and the founder of the shop’s popular wine club. On top of that, he’s a wine rep at Selection Massale — the distributor to thank for bringing us producers like Clos Marfisi, Haarmeyer, and La Boutanche. Eric’s interest in wine is rooted in a deep love of travel, as well as how travel facilitates his meaningful relationships with fellow wine people. Eric is a Pittsburgh native who can be found tending to his houseplants or watching Premier League.
