2016 Dr. Wilhelm Riesling - Rheinhessen, Germany (x2)
Orange blossoms and crisp citrus perfume this German Riesling that arrives with a Gold Medal-winning heritage. 2016 Dr. Wilhelm Riesling opens up in the glass, with a slightly off-dry, honeyed feel that is lightened by a streak of tangerine acidity.

2016 Nguilleu Sauvignon Blanc - Central Valley, Chile (x2)
Named for a sun-like, fruit-bearing plant that grows in the southern Andes mountains, Nguilleu wines are emblematic of the balance of tradition and innovation that characterizes the growing Chilean wine scene. 2016 Nguilleu Sauvignon Blanc is grown in a cold weather climate, and steel-aged for a bright and tart feel. The aromas are perfumed with grapefruit, and the flavors offer notes of lemon, gooseberry, and grass, with a mild salinity that is balanced by mellow honeysuckle on the finish.

2016 La Petite Tour Classic White - Callifornia (x2)
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.
2015 Bellchambers Pinot Grigio - California (x2)
The grapes in 2015 Bellchambers Pinot Grigio have a long history of quality—they were grown on one of California’s first Pinot Grigio vineyards. Pinot Grigio is one of the crispest white wines you can find, and this vintage makes good on its promise to refresh with tasty flavors of tangerine and melon that pair perfectly with a variety of food.
2016 La Reference Grenache Rosé- France (x1)
This fresh and pleasant, pale pink Rosé was produced by Bordeaux wine magnate Bernard Magrez. With a lighthearted feel, 2016 La Rèfèrence Grenache Rosé refreshes with delicate raspberry and red fruit flavors, and a tart note of gooseberry. Pair this summery French selection with crisp vegetable salads, and grilled fish, chicken, or pork.
2016 Racine Rosé - Côtes de Provence Rosé, France (x1)
This special Côtes du Provence Rosé offers full, expressive flavors of lychee, peach, and mango, with an essence of rose. Racine Rosé is produced by legendary French winemaker Bruno Lafon, whose wines always have a certain savoir-faire which is clearly on display here.
