Cepage Sauvignon Blanc - Vin de Pays, France - (x1)
There are many reasons to be a fan of Sauvignon Blanc. It is light, refreshing, vibrant, and versatile. Cépage Sauvignon Blanc hails from France, the white grape’s country of origin. With crisp notes of citrus and exotic fruits, Cépage is perfectly balanced with a sense of freshness and a lingering finish. This wine drinks brilliantly on its own, but truly shines when paired with fresh fish and creative salads.

Vinum Chenin Blanc - South Africa - (x1)
Vinum Africa has succeeded in making a beautiful wine from an oft-neglected grape. Chenin Blanc was once known as the “ugly duckling of Stellenbosch,” but Vinum has nurtured it into a vibrant and elegant white, with exciting aromas of white petals and crisp citrus. The palate has layers of fresh lime and gentle spices, underscored by fruit, and finished with a refreshing minerality. Enjoy Vinum Chenin Blanc with food of your choice. We find that it’s especially delicious with the spices in Thai and Indian food.
