Netzl Grüner Veltliner 2017

Origin: Austria
Retail: $13.95 | Sale: $12.56

Netzl is a small, family run estate with only 26 hectares of vines. The vineyards are cooled by the chill winds of the nearby River Daub allowing the intense aromas and acidity of the Grüner Veltliner grapes to be preserved. With typical varietal aromas of green apples and stone fruits, this wine maintains its mineral edge with a fresh and balanced finish.

This fruity and refreshing wine is meant to be shared amongst friends. Enjoy with a light cheese plate, salads, or your favorite fish.

Marchetti Tenuta del Cavaliere Verdicchio dei Castelli Jesi 2018

Origin: Italy
Retail: $20.95 | Sale: $18.85

The Marche region of east-central Italy is home to some fantastic reds and whites and is especially known for the Verdicchio grape. This crazy-cool white is a wonderfully unique "late harvest" expression of Verdicchio - full-bodied and lush, yet off-dry. Subtle notes of anise complement the array of citrus, stone fruit and salty, gray-rock mineral flavors, while the zesty acidity and lightly creamy mouthfeel make for a balanced and pleasant drink.



Alexandre Monmousseau Vigneau Brut NV

Origin: France
Retail: $20.95 | Sale: $18.85

Clos le Vigneau is owned by fifth generation winemaker Alexandre Monmousseau. This beautiful sparkling is produced from 100% Chenin Blanc vines planted on clay and flint stone based soils. The resulting wine has fresh acidity that lifts the peppered pear flavors. Its rich and easy to drink while keeping its mineral and chalky texture. Its quality makes it a great alternative to Champagne or a wonderful aperitif.

J Christopher J.J. Pinot Noir Willamette 2015

Origin: Oregon
Retail: $27.95 | Sale $25.15

The J. Christopher winery is located in Oregon’s Northern Willamette Valley, in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. Owned by famed German winemaker Ernst Loosen, it is a small winery that specializes in Pinot Noir made using the traditional methods of Burgundy. This cuvée is a blend of selected barrels from several excellent vineyard sites in the red Jory clay of the Dundee Hills AVA. It shows the depth and power that are typical of this area, with classic savory and sanguine notes and a seamless acid structure. A serious value in Oregon Pinot.



Busi Chianti Rufina Riserva 2014

Origin: Italy
Retail: $19.95 | Sale: $17.95

The winery was founded in the 1700s and has been operated by the Busi family since the 1800s. Grapes have been grown on the property since the 1400s. Spending 20 months in oak, this Chianti Riserva features a balanced profile of black cherry, earth, tar, and bitter almond flavors backed by a firm structure. This authentic taste of Tuscany is the ultimate expression of Italian hospitality, whether shared between friends or paired with special occasion dishes.



Domaine Naturaliste Rebus Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Origin: Australia
Retail: $29.95 | Sale: $26.95

Domaine Naturaliste Vineyard is located in the heart of the Wilyabrup sub-region of Margaret River in Western Australia. The Rebus Cabernet Sauvignon has an intricate tapestry of glazed cherries, violets and graphite, deftly woven into a palate laden with flavors of red currants, cacao nib and plum skin. Bristling tannin on the entry and a core of licorice, black berries and slate, finish with a persistent and ever-changing mineral finish.
