2015 Bear Hug Winemaker Select Chardonnay
Customers and competition judges loved last year’s vintage of Bear Hug Chardonnay. It won a 93-point Gold Medal, and we couldn’t keep it on the shelf. So, we’re very excited to share the new vintage of this California classic. 2015 Bear Hug Winemaker Select Chardonnay builds on its crisp and refreshing heritage with harmonious notes of tart green apple and tangy nectarine, balanced by some sweet melon and a note of honeysuckle. Add a few bottles to your den, today.
2015 Dr. Wilhelm Riesling
Orange blossoms and summer peaches perfume this delectably fruity, concentrated German white wine. 2015 Dr. Wilhelm Riesling is slightly off-dry, with a plump, honeyed feel that is lightened by a streak of tangerine acidity that persists to the finish. Drink it now.
2015 Cépage Sauvignon Blanc
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.

2016 La Petite Tour Classic White
La Petite Tour winery has been a highlight of California’s wine scene since the 1980s. Over the years, this white blend has remained a family favorite, and was originally only made in small lots for their own table. La Petite Tour Classic White is a delicately aromatic, medium-bodied wine with flavors of ripe pear and surprisingly bright citrus notes. It’s a versatile food wine, that pairs well with fish, grilled chicken or vegetables, and we’ve found that it’s the bottle that thrills white wine fans…and converts red wine drinkers.
