Brochard Les Carisannes
Loire Valley, France
This Sauvignon Blanc shows classic aromas and flavors of citrus, fresh herbs, and minerals. From the Loire Valley, you'll find it lighter in weight and texture than Sancerre but its fresh and fruity character make it a delicious wine for warm-weather refreshment and simple food pairings.
Suggested Pairing: ~Shrimp Cocktail
This intensely-hued rosé has a fresh and fruity character, dominated by the flavors of cherry and gooseberry, which are typical of Agiorgitiko grapes that grow on the Nemea highlands. Medium-bodied and well balanced, it has a cool and refreshing finish
Suggested Pairing: ~Pad Thai
Domaine Blain Brouilly
Northwest-facing vines bring tension to the wine while the meager soil provides a mineral backbone. This 100% gamay shows aromas and flavors of ripe red fruits such as strawberries and cherries, while a percentage of whole clusters add to the wine’s complexity
Suggested Pairing: ~Grilled Tuna
