2014 Le Parlement Bordeaux Blanc - France
When we found Le Parlement Bordeaux Blanc, we were blown away by this delicate, layered white wine with generous flavors of zesty citrus, fresh grass, gooseberry and honeysuckle. White Bordeaux is not on most people's wine radar, but we love this sophisticated wine that has a Sauvignon Blanc’s appeal, with an added complexity that appeals to true enthusiasts. Do not miss this limited wine, which won the Gold for Best Bordeaux Blend in the 2016 Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition.

NV Val Di Botte Pinot Grigio I.G.T. - Provincia di Pavia, Italy
Just south of Milan close to the Italian Alps and boarding Alto-Adige, probably the definitive source for the world’s best Pinot Grigio, is where Val di Botte sources the amazing grapes that produce this exquisite white wine. This low alcohol balanced acid driven Pinot Grigio flaunts citrus zest, apple, pears, and nectarine flavors mingling with slight almond and ginger notes. The quintessential summertime wine, it is light, refreshing, and perfect for the season. We recommend this wine served ice cold to maximize the crispness.
