Maison De La Villette Chardonnay
Languedoc, France 2017
This lovely lemon colored wine is slightly off dry. The nose offers white blossom and the palate detects pears, some stone fruit and a light minerality, thanks to the warm sunny days in Southern France. There is a hint of vanilla in this medium finish wine. A classic French chardonnay made by a 4th generation family.

The Great Oregon Wine Company
Rascal Pinot Noir
Willamette Valley, Oregon 2017
A classic style Pinot Noir. Ruby color, medium acidity balanced by fruity flavors of strawberries and red cherries. A hint of tannin gives this wine body and a worthy finish. This is the perfect wine for your next barbeque. The company’s philanthropic efforts are directed at the Humane Society of the United States and their heroic animal rescue efforts. A great choice for animal lovers!

Segura Viudas Brut Cava
Penedes Region, Spain NV
Nothing adds more fun to a party than bubbles. Segura Viudas is one of the top Spanish sparkling wine producers. This dry, medium acidic wine combines notes of green apple, citrus, and lemon zest with grass and hay. It can stand alone with soft, fatty cheeses and pizza, or use it as a base for a fun summer cocktail.
Regular price: $12.99/ Sale price $9.97
Sangre de Toro Rose
A dry, fresh and floral rose that takes the “bull by the horns”. The pink/salmon color comes from a blend of Garnacha and Carinena grapes that are indigenous to the warm weather in Spain. This blend provides fruity aromas and the taste of wild strawberries, culminating in a smooth and silky finish. Enjoy it chilled on a summer evening with barbeque chicken or ribs. Each bottle comes with its very own bull charm.
