|"Purety" is a Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend, |
yours for only $22/bottle. Purety awesome.
But as the title of this post may have given away, pure Cru also offers guests sitting in their comfortable leather chairs the sublime culinary stylings of Oenotri restaurant -- pure Cru's deservedly famous and perpetually packed Napa Square neighbor just fifteen steps away.
That's right... you no longer have to reserve weeks in advance, or battle a barful of canny locals to sample the legendary pizzas, antipasti, and charcuterie from Curtis Di Fede and Tyler Rodde. Just score a seat at pure Cru during Oenotri's open hours, and you're good to go! Obviously the restaurant's full menu is not available there -- and neither is any of their wine list -- but you can enjoy enough of that Oenotri poetry to make a fabulous rustic Italian meal. And, by another stroke of divine intervention, winemaker Mitch Cosentino happens to make several delicious Sangiovese-based blends under the pure Cru label that should pair outrageously with those pizzas and cured meats.
THIS IS HUGE, folks. I'm completely obsessed with Oenotri's pizzas, but unless I can time it just right at the bar, I rarely manage to score one any time I want to. But since pure Cru just opened recently, it pretty much always has seats available... at least for now. This Oenotri collaboration is a new thing, and may put an end to that easy availability in a hurry. Until it does, though, I plan to take full advantage of this top-secret Oenotri pizza annex, and I urge my loyal readers to do the same.
