CVNE, Ribero Del Duero "Finca"
$ 21.99 SALE $ 17.99
A medium to full bodied dry red wine bursting with blackberry, plum and black cherry. Vanilla, toast and tobacco are soft on the nose and carry through on the palate. This delectable tempranillo pairs well with beef, lamb or game dishes.
CVNE, Cune Monopole Blanco, Rioja
$ 18.99 SALE $ 12.99
100% Viura, fermented and raised in stainless steel. One of the region’s iconic go-to whites, and in fact Spain’s oldest existing white wine brand, produced under the same name since 1915. Hand harvested at optimum ripeness, this wine is gentle pale yellow-green in color. Seductive scents of spring, white flowers and fresh tropical fruit lead into a luxurious palate with just the right amount of acidity to convey a lasting freshness. An ideal companion for seafood, especially fish.

Grasso Fratelli Trej Red Blend, Piedmont, NV
$ 23.99 SALE $ 21.99
As a Vino Rosso the label doesn't tell you very much, but this is a blend of the three main red grapes from Piedmont. It's a lovely wine and a really good introduction for anyone who is unfamiliar with wines from this region. The Nebbiolo dominates the flavour profile, but its natural sourness is tempered by the sweet Dolcetto and robust Barbera.
60% Nebbiolo, 20% Barbera, 20% Dolcetto
