Albarrada is a new and exclusive winery that showcases local Portuguese grapes. This excellent red wine (or vinho tinto, in Portuguese) features Castelão grapes, which thrive on Portugal’s drier, harsher climate. The resulting wine is aromatic and fruit-forward with notes of red berries and mild floral notes. We suggest Albarrada Red for fans of Tempranillo and Barbera, especially if you pair it with French charcuterie or Korean short ribs.

Granite Ridge Pinotage
Since the 1920s, vintners have been honing Pinotage, a genetic hybrid of Pinot Noir and Hermitage (or Cinsault) grapes that yields a truly unique light red wine. South Africa’s Winery of Good Hope has perfected the hybrid, with a Pinotage that brings out the aspects of both grapes. In addition to the notes of cherry from the Pinot Noir, and the spiciness from the Hermitage, you'll enjoy a nice juicy palate with balance, length, and a bit of spice, especially if you drink it slightly chilled.
Carménère is a dry, medium-bodied red with Bordeaux origins and a Chilean pedigree. Yapa Carménère is a vivid, violet red color with aromas of fresh raspberries and cherries that follow through on the palate with spices and bittersweet chocolate. Serve this wine with a zesty pork dish, or a hearty tomato seafood stew.
Crisp, refreshing Chardonnay is the first thing that comes to mind when most people think of white wine. Snickerdoodle makes a fresh Chardonnay, with flavors of green apple, nectarine and juicy melon. A subtle hint of oak adds complexity without cutting into the wine’s crispness, resulting in a delicious gem of a California Chardonnay.
