Building a Case of Wine for Winter with Myles Fischer

Dec 21, 2021

In today’s episode, Montana is joined by beverage industry veteran, Myles Fischer, for a discussion on how to approach putting together a case of wine to enjoy during the winter months. 

Myles has worked in fine wine and mixology for many years in addition to being a trained chef. Today, Myles heads up the beverage program at Denver’s Peak Beverage, located at 4375 Brighton Blvd, Denver, CO. If you’re in the area we highly recommend stopping in to see Myles and pick his brain for some great wine recommendations.  

Here’s what we’re covering:

  • Why you should consider buying a case of 12 bottles at a time
  • Our approach to deciding which wines make it in the box
  • Why bubbles are more than an aperitif
  • Why aromatic whites are a must in winter
  • Riesling doesn’t automatically mean sweet!

A few of the wines and categories we mention during the show:

  • Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé (France)
  • Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Gris (France)
  • Trimbach Pinot Gris (France)
  • Foris Pinot Gris (Oregon)
  • Portlandia Pinot Gris (Oregon)
  • Dr. Loosen (Dr. L) Riesling (Germany)
  • Storm Cellar Riesling (Colorado)
  • Disruption Riesling (Washington State)
  • Tavel Rosé (France)
  • Beaujolais Daniel Bouland Georges DeBouef (France)
  • Raul Perez Mencia (Spain)
  • Monastrell from Jumilla (Spain)
  • Melville Pinot Noir (Santa Barbara)

We hope you find some solid value in these tips and tricks! There are so many ways to build a case of wine. The best way to find the method that works best for you is just to do it. Not to mention, you almost always get a discount from the retailer when you buy a case!
