2015 Bertoli Primitivo di Puglia I.G.T. - Puglia, Italy
Think of that perfectly broken-in pair of boots. They’re tough enough for bad weather, but refined enough to add something to your favorite suit. Bertoli Primitivo di Puglia IGT is those boots. This powerful red, from Italy’s heel, is soft and deep with flavorful vanilla, raspberry and spice notes. Pack it for a trip, or pair it with spicy sausages, venison, duck, or tomato dishes like chili and lasagna.

2015 Domaine du Grand Mouton Muscadet Sevre et Maine
This refreshing and dry Loire Valley white opens with notes of beeswax, orange blossom, seashell, and honeyed pear. The aromas follow through to the palate where they are joined by a nice, chalky minerality, notes of lemon, and a long finish. This mouthwatering white is the perfect pairing for oysters and shellfish, and pleases Sauvignon Blanc lovers looking for something a little fuller.
2015 Hoya de Cadenas Night Havest White Blend - Spain
This blend of Muscat, Viura, Chardonnay, and Verdejo from Valencia, Spain is a lovely golden color in the glass. It excites with intense aromas of exotic fruit and a soft richness on the palate, where honeyed notes of citrus and apple lead to an unctuous finish and pleasant aftertaste.
