You can’t go wrong with this pair from California. Folie A Deux Pinot Noir from Sonoma is one of our top selling California Reds. Plums and dark cherries with a hint of spice followed by a long finish. Next to Sonoma is the Girard Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Lovely notes of lemon, lime, and kiwi that is balanced with a nice acidity. Both wines shine together with foods such as roasted chicken or lighter fare.
A popular holiday choice, this year we feature two exceptional wines from France. The Chartron la Fleur Bordeaux Blanc is a customer and staff favorite. This 100% Sauvignon Blanc from Bordeaux is light and crisp with mild floral notes – pair with light appetizers, salads, shellfish and poultry. A classic Languedoc Pinot Noir, the Le Charmel is the perfect complement for traditional winter ham or roasts. Flavors of crushed raspberries and currants are the stars here. A tin of buttery French cheese, a jar of scrumptious Dalmatia fig spread and delicate water crackers make this the perfect gift for your favorite gourmand.
Our Favorite Things
This elegant trifecta is comprised of both staff and customer favorites, so it’s a sure winner. The Terlato Chardonnay is a great way to start a meal with friends and family. Aromas of apple, pear, vanilla, and floral notes open up to flavors of tropical fruit and apricots. Coming from the Russian River Valley it’s a sure winner. Alexander Valley Vineyards Pinot Noir comes from you guessed it, Alexander Valley in California where it has a cooler climate ideal for growing Pinot Noir. It shows aromas of ripe cherry, strawberry, and cranberry. The palate is laden with baking spices, toasted nuts, strawberry, and black cherry enhanced by silky, round tannins. Josh Cellars Reserve Cabernet is a North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon that is bursting with dark fruits. The wine is full-bodied and plush, showcasing rich flavors of black cherries and blackberries with subtle oak and vanilla.

Treat someone special to a picnic in Paris with this assortment fit for any Francophile featuring two of our favorites from Burgundy and Northern Rhône. The Vignerons Reunis Chardonnay is a consistently stunning White Burgundy. Stainless steel fermented, crisp, clean, and delicious! The Pierre le Grand Crozes-Hermitage is all Syrah and perfectly balanced. On the nose, it has aromas of raspberries, tart cherries and pepper. On the palate, red berry fruits and a slight smoky background. Solid structure with silky smooth tannins. Creamy French cheese, a decadent saucisson and Water Wheel wafer crackers complete your al fresco Parisian meal. C’est magnifique!

Bubbles & Toffee
Combine a gift of luxury with decadence. The Syltbar Il Concerto Prosecco is clean, crisp and refreshing with long finishes of green apple, white peaches and lemon. No extra sugar added and friendly for Vegan or Vegetarians. A match made for its counterpart – KP! Dark Chocolate Toffee from Wisconsin. A store and staff favorite, the crunch of California almonds mixed into the buttery base and topped with dark chocolate. Amazing!
Three cheery bottles to brighten your Holiday. Welcome your guests with the Voveti Prosecco from Italy. This elegant bubbly shows aromas of green apple and citrus with crisp acidity and a long finish. Moving on to the appetizers, the Hanna Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect accompaniment with its citrus, melon, and tropical notes. On the palate, the bright acidity is balanced by mandarin orange, kiwi and lime flavors. For the main course, the Alexander Valley Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon is a stunner – racy and supple, with great balance and a firm tannin backbone. Notes of ripe black currant and a hint of licorice and Christmas fruitcake on the nose lead into rich, dark fruits and flavors of spice box and cedar.
