Martini & Rossi


Martini & Rossi is an iconic Italian brand of wine and vermouth, founded by Alessandro Martini and Luigi Rossi in the mid 1800s in Turin. In 1863, they produced their first vermouth, a blend of herbs and botanicals in fortified wine, which was met with instant success in the Piedmont cafes where it was introduced, during what became “aperitivo hour.” Eventually the brand expanded internationally and continued to grow throughout the 20th century. Of course, anyone who was around in the 1970s and 80s is familiar with the ubiquitous Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante ad campaigns, which introduced a worldwide audience to the slightly sweet style of Piedmontese sparkling wine. Their vermouths (available in rosso, blanco, rosato and extra dry) continue to be favorites as aperitifs and in cocktails, a go-to bartender favorite. In addition to the Asti Spumante style, they also produce dry Prosecco, sparkling rosé and a popular off dry Moscato.

  • Cafe de Paris Pear


    As an alternative to our usual Martini & Rossi Asti Champagne, we thought we'd give this a try, mostly because of the word "Pear" on the label. Seeing "Paris" did influence the decision as the expecation would be sweet, wet rather than tart, dry. Meeting expectations on sweet, wet and an alternative to champagne, we didn't taste a whole lot of... Read More

  • Martini Rossi Martini Rossi Sweet Vermouth


    Herbaceous, maybe good for cooking lamb or beef. Reminds me of a liquid form of Thyme but would no more drink this alone as I would olive oil. Read More

  • New Year’s Eve sparkling wine is arguably the most important wine selection you will make…for the rest of the year. But seriously folks, your New Year’s Eve sparkling wine toast is a crucial moment of reflection, resignation, and acceptance. It’s a moment when you take stock of all the decisions you’ve made over the last 365 days and salute them... Read More

    Tart and toasted aromas on the nose with strawberry and melon notes. Cooked strawberry notes with lots of sweetness that tastes similar to a red fruit jelly. Read More

    A hint of sweetness underlying the fruit with honeyed apple. Off dry on the palate, showing a lot of sweet notes, with ripe red delicious apple, peach and apricot flavors, and just a touch of tingling acidity towards the finish. Read More

  • Since DM wanted my list, I will indulge him to a point.  I will be honest and say I've certainly not tried almost any of the wine (or makers) on the Gallo list, but my intuitions are proving correct.  Before I'm judged, think of it this way, would you pay to see John Tesh in concert?  I wouldn't pay to drink most of the stuff on that list.  Ball...

  • "OT, do you drink Gallo?"Yep, I do, as do many here. Gallo brands are far reaching. Look what's on my countertop right now... Frei Bros is a Gallo brand, so is Louis Martini. That Rancho Zabaco that EMark drank the other night, you guessed it, Gallo brand. They are a huge operation that produces a lot of pedestrian wine. They also make wines on ... Read More
