You can’t go wrong with this pair of top-selling wines from Italy. The La Trota Pinot Grigio is rich & velvety with flavors of pear, orange, melon and a hint of almond – dry, luscious and well balanced. One sip of the Poggio Alla Lepre Chianti is a step right into Italy. Classic flavors of ripe cherry & tobacco notes with a lingering finish, it’s a perfect companion to game meats and rich fish dishes. – two of our top-selling wines from the Americas.
A popular holiday choice, this year we feature two exceptional wines from France. The Grand Bateau Bordeaux Blanc is 100% Sauvignon Blanc. Aromas of apple, peach, lemon and grass seamlessly match the full bodied palate. The Vidal Fleury Cotes du Rhone shows aromas of strawberry, chocolate, prune, cherry and violet on the nose – a well structured, medium bodied wine with balanced acidity and tannins. 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 trio is comprised of both staff and customer favorites. The Folie a Deux Chardonnay from California, one of our most popular whites, offers complex aromas of honey, green apple, tropical fruit & vanilla with juicy apple, pineapple, tropical fruit and light butter notes with balanced acidity. Hands down our best selling Rosé, the AIX Rosé from Provence is a refined wine with concentrated apple, spice & citrus flanked by rich, spicy notes and a creamy finish. And to top off, the Joseph Carr Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas of fig, cherry, forest floor and cocoa open the palate to gobs of black currant, dense tannin, earthy chocolate and dried fruit. Full bodied with food friendly acidity and notes of spice box on the finish.
Treat someone special to a picnic in Paris with this assortment fit for any Francophile. The Ernest Meurgey-Perron Bourgogne is earthy, with cherry & black fruits on the nose, a medium body and well balanced finish. The Franck Millet Sancerre is a perfect representation of the best dry white wines coming from the Loire Valley. Balanced acidity and supple fruit notes dance on the palate with a long finish. Creamy French cheese, a decadent saucisson and Water Wheel wafer crackers complete your al fresco Parisian meal. C’est magnifique.

A gift of luxury & decadence – the Besserat de Bellefon Brut Cuvee is a stunning Champagne. Tightly knit & racy, mouthwatering & harmonious, showing flavors of black currant, smoked almond, candied lemon, honey and minerality.

Three cheery bottles to brighten your Holiday. Welcome your guests with the Scharffenberger Brut Excellence from California. This elegant bubbly combines cherry, almond and ginger notes with a suave texture and long finish. Moving on to the appetizers, the Cave Buxy Bourgogne Chardonnay is a perfect accompaniment with its aromas of apple and citrus with racy acidity from stainless steel aging. For the main course, the Ancient Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of blueberry, plum & toasted oak. The texture is plump and juicy, with flavors of currant & fresh berries accentuated by hints of coffee, anise, tobacco and mineral.
This trio of world-class wines from California is sure to please the most discerning wine drinker. The Sanford Chardonnay comes from the heart of Santa Rita Hills. Gentle whole cluster pressing & barrel fermentation in French oak give it a lovely texture and a vibrant palate of citrus, green apple & stone fruit with lively acidity. The 2013 Rex Hill Willamette Valley Oregon Pinot Noir shows all the hallmarks of an excellent vintage. Aromas of flowers, berries and wet stone emerge when the wine is first poured with complex flavors of tobacco, sandalwood and spice. The 2012 B.R. Cohn Gold Label Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich, bold wine built to go with food. Classic aromas of cassis & plum harmonize with a bouquet of sweet French oak, cedar & tobacco, clove and hints of anise and pine. The palate is full bodied with rich plum and cherry flavors and supple tannins on the long finish.
Welcome to your six country tour! We begin with a refreshing Prosecco from Italy’s Stellina di Notte then head southwest to Spain for the Lolo Albariño. After a quick hop across the pond to California for the Cameron Hughes “Lot 403” Pinot Noir, we jet south to Argentina for the Terrazas Malbec. After quite a long swim westward to New Zealand for the Red Deer Pinot Gris, we complete our journey with a stop in South Africa for the Closilo “Kierie” Cabernet Sauvignon.
Viva España! Three of our Spanish favorites for your enjoyment. The Segura Viudas Brut Reserva Cava is one of our best selling sparkling wines. It is crisp and refreshing with aromas of white fruit & citrus along with tropical and light floral notes. The complex palate includes notes of lime and pineapple with balanced acidity and a smooth finish. The Lolo Albariño has intense aromas of citrus, grapefruit and green apple with rich fruit flavors and a pleasant finish. The Paco y Lola “Red Experience” is a blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha. It is aromatic and fruit forward with bright notes of cherry and raspberry on the nose and palate.
