Abbazia Barbera d' Asti D.O.C.G.
Pairs with Blue Cheese
Located in the rolling hills between Milan and Genoa, Asti is known for some of the world’s best wines and cuisine. The Barbera made in Asti is second to none. This elegant wine is full and dry, with firm tannins and ripe red berry flavors. While Barbera ages well, its youthful nature is especially exciting during the young stages of its bottle life.

Terre Blanche Grand Vin Bordeaux Old Vines Graves
Pairs with Camembert
A smooth and dry red from the historic Bordeaux subregion of Graves, 2014 Terre Blanche Bordeaux features 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. This supple Bordeaux is vivid in the glass with flavors of black cherry and currant flavors, and an enjoyably easy finish.
29 Barrels Private Reserve Chardonnay
Pairs with Buttery Brie
This fruity, unoaked Chardonnay is made from a select grouping of grapes that introduce themselves with flavors of green apple, nectarine, honeysuckle, and melon. Like the first spring breeze, or a visit from an old friend, a refreshing surprise like 29 Barrels Reserve Chardonnay arrives very rarely. Act accordingly.
Marquis de Bacalan Sauvignon Blanc
Pairs with Parmigiano-Reggiano
While almost 90% of the wine produced in France’s legendary Bordeaux region is red, Bordeaux whites are made with the same care and eye for detail as the region’s reds. For example, 2015 Marquis de Bacalan Bordeaux Blanc thrilled us with its sophistication. It’s a delicately layered white, with plenty of space for generous flavors of citrus, grass, gooseberry, and honeysuckle. Think of this Bordeaux Blanc as a white that possesses the same appeal as a Sauvignon Blanc, but with a complexity that is sure to thrill connoisseurs.
Bertoli Vermentino Toscano I.G.T.
Pairs with Creamy Goat Cheese
Carefree as flowers thrown from a seaside cliff, this irresistibly fresh, light-bodied white has complex notes of peaches, flowers, sage, and rosemary. Pair it with zesty lime or garlic-seasoned dishes, and be sure to enjoy. Bertoli Toscano IGT Vermontino tastes like an outdoor wedding, perfect ocean breeze and all.
