GOL! The Taste of Brazil is proud to present an eclectic, delicious wine list with a strong emphasis on Latin wines from Chile, Argentina, Spain, Brazil and Portugal, as well as magnificent wines from the United States, France and Italy.
Our magnificent glassed-in wine cellar maintains our fine wine list at a constant 60 degrees to guarantee appropriate aging and maintenance until the bottle is decanted at the client's table. We decant all our wines, not just the most expensive. This allows the wine to "breathe" and reach its full potential.
GOL! features wines rarely tasted in the United States that are true jewels from around the world. For instance, we have the country's best collection of wines made from the Carmenere grape found in Chile. This grape was planted in Chile more than 50 years ago by French vineyards and forgotten by the world. The Rothschild family rediscovered this varietal some years ago when a plague wiped out the original Carmenere planting in France.
Today, Chile is the only place in the world to produce this magnificent wine and the selection found at GOL! will surprise those not yet familiar with this grape.
Similarly, GOL! presents the finest wines from the Malbec region in Argentina.
Malbec is a grape that needs great care and there are many Malbecs that are rough and unpleasant. On GOL!'s list, however, you will find Malbecs at accessible prices that will thrill your taste buds.
Additionally, we offer our clients a minimum of 10 wines rated 90 or better by famed wine critic Robert Parker for less than $100. We also will have many inexpensive wines that, under blind tasting, would taste like their more expensive counterparts from Bordeaux or Napa Valley.
GOL! has a large selection of wine by the glass that allow our clients to taste many wines during their meal until they find that perfect combination. GOL! uses only Riedel glasses and decanters.
Please enjoy our wines but drink sensibly so you may return many times again.
