Veneto D.O.C.G., Italy
Loads of toasty oak, smoke, and vanilla spice on the nose and palate of this robust northern Italian red wine. Uses the appasimento method of drying grapes before fermentation to concentrate flavour, alcohol and weight. Racy acidity on the palate. Pair with pepper steak.

Sweetness: Extra Dry
Heavenly Hamburger Wine
Rheinhessen Qualitätswein, Germany
The lovely 2015 vintage of the Oppenheim Herrenberg Riesling Auslese features aromas of apple blossom, lime zest and white peach. A vibrant streak of acidity provides perfect balance to the natural sweetness of this wine. Pair with a glazed ham and chutney.
Plush Pork Wine

A light-bodied, soft summer sipper with fresh peach and pear notes. Nice expression of Californian Chenin Blanc that we don't see often on the liquor store shelves. This wine is Kosher for Passover. Pair with light seafood dishes.
