Le Plan Sauvignon Blanc 2019
“Crisp and refreshing, this is perfect for a picnic in the park.”
Saint Vincent Rose NV
“It’s never not a great time to enjoy these pink bubbles.”
Gatao Vinho Verde 2019
“This delicious, effervescent white is easy on the palate and a MUST on a hot summer evening. So refreshing!”
“This gin is DELISH! Smooth, perfect for sipping, dry martinis, and gin old-fashioneds.”
Familie Bauer “Barig” Alte Reben 2019
“This orange Gruner Veltliner blend is crisp, funky, and refreshing, with explosive notes of pear, orange, quince, and spice. Pair with creamy cheeses, pulled pork tacos, and Jamie Foxx’s performance in ‘Project Power’ on Netflix.”
Kumeu Village Pinot Noir 2018
Light, elegant, crushable ― this is New Zealand Pinot Noir at it's very best. This is perfect with a chill or on its own with a charcuterie plate and Season 2 of "The Umbrella Academy."
This is a gem that’s often overlooked and underestimated. Bright and crisp, it’s delicious on its own, in a spritz, or alongside fried chicken.
Henry Marionnet “Terres Blondes” Gamay 2019
“Surreptitiously refreshing! Fresh and dried berries and a tangy pop. Try it with spicy food or veggies!”
Uivo “Renegado” 2019
“This summer red will charm you with ripe raspberries, cherries and gentle earthiness. Serve chilled, but be careful, you just might drink the whole bottle!”
Caravaglio Malvasia 2019
“This is a bold, coastal white that teases you with floral aromas before enticing you with a perfect balance of volcanic minerality, tropical citrus, and melon.
