Wally's Price: $24
Prosecco gets all the attention when it comes to Italian sparklers, but Italy is home to many other types of bubbles. Trento DOC is one of the lesser known regions that produces bottle-fermented version, made in the same method that Champagne uses. Crafted exclusively from Chardonnay, this bottling from Ferrari is crisp and elegant with flavors of Meyer lemon, ripe Asian pear, and delicate white flowers all enveloped in creamy mousse. This is a superb blanc de blancs that won’t break the bank.
- Sunhee Park: Sommelier, Wally’s Beverly Hills
Comforting aromas of oven-baked bread and Bartlett pear waft out of the glass. On the polished, refreshing palate, a continuous perlage frames creamy yellow apple, nectarine and citrus zest alongside a hint of baking spice.

2018 Rumors Rose Cotes de Provence

A new rose on the block and a passion project of a long time patron of Wally's.

Rumors is rose of depth that can work as an apéritif as well as hold it's own with anything grilled. We are proud to be the exclusive retailer in the United States of this versatile Rose.

2017 Mollydooker Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz
Wally's Price: $50
The Syrah grape performs well throughout the world, making beautiful, aromatic red wines from the Rhone Valley of France to the Central Coast of California. But one of its best incarnations is as Shiraz, its Australian alias. These dark, full-bodied, flavorful wines represent the powerful and opulent side of Syrah. One of the champions of this style is Mollydooker in the McLaren Vale region. Their Blue Eyed Boy is a wonder to taste! Silky in texture with mounds of ripe blueberry fruit, brandied cherries, dark chocolate and white pepper. It is a powerhouse of flavor that can be enjoyed on its own, but also makes for an ideal transition from a hearty dinner to a rich dessert. Blue Eyed Boy is both a crowd-pleaser and a showstopper.
- Robert Vardanian: Wine Director, Wally’s Santa Monica
Stylish, fragrant and supple, with dried lavender, vanilla bean and mocha notes that add richness to the core of ripe, jammy blueberry and blackberry flavors. Harmonious and creamy on the long, generous finish.

2015 Michel Gros Vosne Romanee 1er Cru Clos Des Reas
Wally's Price: $150
This is such a beautiful and elegant Burgundy. The best part is ready to drink right now. The Clos Des Reas monopole vineyard has been in the Gros family for a century and a half and is the only 1er cru monopole in Vosne Romanee. The 2015 Clos Des Reas is ripe and fresh with notes of raspberries, cherries, currants, black tea, and roses. It is supple and smooth; it dances around on the palate offering an elegant and silky mouthfeel. It is a truly pleasurable wine which can be paired with food or simply enjoyed by itself. It is a must try for any Pinot Noir lover.
- Dustin Cassidy: Sommelier, Wally’s Beverly Hills
A smoky cast to the cherry and spice flavors and a hint of vegetal notes mark this rich red. Firm and long, with a lingering echo of smoke and spice on the finish. Best from 2023 through 2045.
