European Tour Mixed Case
Your European Tour Mixed Case contains one bottle each of
Bertoli Sangiovese di Puglia I.G.T.
Classics started off great, and developed into something respected, excellent, refined, and reliable. Think gourmet grilled cheese, your favorite singer’s surprising 10th album, or Sangiovese wine--the most famous Italian grape, known for its delicate and elegant fruitiness. Bertoli Sangiovese di Puglia IGT croons from the glass with supple berry flavors, silky mouth feel, and a lively encore.
Cuvee Joelle Malbec et Merlot
Among the many noteworthy French grapes, two have become especially treasured for their stunning wines. Malbec has a dark, rustic nature, while Merlot features a soft, fruit forward, and herbaceous character. When blended, they craft a unique flavor. Cuvèe Joëlle fuses red plum, raspberry, blackberry, vanilla, and fresh herbs. This exciting red blend is meant to be paired with fun dishes like bacon-wrapped blue cheese stuffed dates, pungent cheeses, and bacon blue cheese burgers.
Longitude Red Blend
Longitude has flavors of plums and strawberries, with an easygoing finish and very smooth tannins. Think of it as the black cotton sweater of wines—you’ll want it on hand for almost any occasion.
Vina Albali Tempranillo
We recommend opening your bottle of Vina Albali Tempranillo and walking away for half an hour, allowing the wine to breath. Your restraint will pay off, as this Spanish red bursts forth with ripe fruit flavors of cherry and strawberry, combined with a perfumed nose. It drinks well, with a fine structure and a smooth finish. Definitely worth the wait.
Villa Amoroso Nero d'Avola
Sicily’s premier grape Nero d’Avola is like Cabernet Sauvignon to California – the two go hand in hand. Nero d’Avola’s bold flavors contrast the wine’s light red profile. Villa Amoroso’s vibrant version offers flavors of blackberry, plum, sweet spice, and smoke with a sultry finish. This is a wine for food lovers, especially beef dishes like stews, burgers, and even meatloaf.
Pretium Merlot - Malbec
Southwest France’s Buzet AOC region is known for producing quality Bordeaux-style blends. Pretium Red Blend combines 60% Merlot and 40% Malbec, exclusively made from grapes grown along the Garonne River in Buzet. This elegant red has a lot of personality, with a profile of red fruits and a delicate finish.

Blandine Le Blanc White Blend
Southwest France’s Cotes du Gascogne wine region is home to prestigious châteaux like Château de Cèdre, the producer of Blandine Le Blanc. This wonderful blend of 60% Colombard and 40% Ugni-Blanc is grown on vines that are up to 30 years old, leading to complex layers of flavor that include pineapple, grapefruit, and tropical fruits, with subtle green bell pepper.

Enjoy it throughout a meal, as it compliments light seafood pastas and desserts like apple tart.
Abbazia Moscato Vino Dolce I.G.T.
This Moscato is a fun and spritzy white wine from Northern Italy’s Lombardia province, where sun-soaked days and cool nights produce highly flavorful wines. This sweet and beautifully floral wine is ideal as an aperitif or with a delectable dessert.
Domaine de Ménard Cuvee Marine Cotes du Gascogne
Southern France’s Domaine de Ménard has been producing international award-winning wines and cultivating vineyards in Gascogne since 1920. This white blend exemplifies the region’s vibrant wines with a blend of local Colombard, Sauvignon and Gros Manseng grapes, resulting in an aromatic, elegant and crisp white, with tropical fruit notes and green flavors. Enjoy it with shellfish. Domaine du Menard White Blend won the Gold in the 2016 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition.
Abbazia Cuvee Prestige
Prosecco fans, take note. Our Cuvèe Prestige bottling from Abbazia is produced in the charmat method, ensuring a refreshing sparkling wine with a complex palate of flavors and tiny, concentrated bubbles. It is fruity and pleasant, with a balance of golden apple and spring flower flavors on top of a dry finish. We can think of no better way to celebrate than with this sparkling wine made from Glera, the famous Italian prosecco grapes from Lombardy’s Collio vineyards. We’ve been toasting with this Cuvee Prestige a lot lately, as it recently won the Gold in the Monterey Wine Competition with a score of 90 points, plus the Silver in the Critics Challenge Wine Competition 2016 (89 points), and the International Eastern Wine Competition 2016.
