1. 2018 Alla Costiera Prosecco Extra Dry (Veneto, Italy)
This tiny, certified organic, farmer-led producer makes one of the best Proseccos in the world. Showing off lovely pear, apple, lemon, and white floral notes, everyone loves this wine.
2. 2018 Oltretorrente Bianco (Piemonte, Italy)
From a certified organic, old vine site planted to Cortese, the same grape that goes into Gavi, this is like Premier Cru Chablis at half the price. Perfect if you’re having fish or seafood!
3. 2018 Dr. L Riesling (Mosel, Germany)
This off-dry white from the steep slopes lining the Mosel River is always one of the top value German Rieslings out there. Showing wonderful notes of white peach, pear, apple and white flowers, it’s simply delightful. Enjoy this one with spicy fare, like Southeast Asian fare — we like Wild Ginger for this one.
4. 2016 Vignerons de Buxy Pinot Noir/Gamay (Burgundy, France)
This staff and customer favorite is the cheapest way to get Burgundy into your glass. Medium-bodied, silky and vibrant, this one offers up enticing notes of fresh cherry, strawberry and spice. Awesome with roast chicken, salmon or pork.
5. 2016 Finca Decero Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Remolinos Vineyard’ (Mendoza, Argentina)
Talk about a Napa-styled Cab with a lot going on at a great price! This one is full-bodied, stylish and bursting with classic Cab notes of dark berries, dark chocolate and spicy oak. A natural with steak or lamb, you’ll be amazed at the QPR here folks.
6. Surprise Wine
This one is the all-time best wine to pair with chocolate. And it’s just delicious too!
