Hayton Family Reserve Chardonnay
It has a refreshing "say no to oak" style – bright and light with citrus, apple and tropical fruit aromas and flavors. A gentle acidity adds structure while allowing the delicate fruit flavors to shine. Versatile and food-friendly, it makes a good choice with seafood, poultry, or pasta dishes with butter-based sauces.
Qapay Reserve Sauvignon Blanc
Qapay Sauvignon Blanc is a classic example of what can be done with this popular variety in Central Chile. The grapes are exposed to wonderful sun and an almost greenhouse-like regularity of dry, hot days and dry, cool nights throughout the growing season--near perfect ripening conditions. The result is a clean, citrusy, lean and fresh wine. The nose is full of grapefruit and green apple followed by zesty flavors of green fruits, lime, and floral notes and a long, crisp finish. Outstanding as an aperitif or a cocktail wine, it is also ideal with salads using arugula, fennel, or roasted bell peppers, and is a refreshing companion for richer white meats like pork and lobster.
Baron Kokot Michelsberg White
Most people do not consider German wines when making their choice of wines to drink on any given occasion. I ask you, why not? Germany produces high quality wines that are for the white wine lover who enjoys crisp acid-driven whites.

It is vibrant and slightly sweet, making it the perfect complement to Thai and Indian dishes as a stand alone aperitif.

Perfect for full-bodied fish, creamy seafood recipes, and white meats as well as corn-based dishes.
