Fleur de Mer Rosé
The Cotes de Provence is known for its rolling hills, lavender fields, sun washed villages and exceptional rosé.
Fleur de Mer (meaning flower of the sea) is an elegant rosé with aromas and flavors of fresh berries, citrus, watermelon and hints of lavender. This refreshing wine is the perfect “spring sipper” and it pairs extremely well with food.
Prophecy Pinot Noir
This is a light, fruity and very approachable pinot noir with ripe berry flavors and a silky texture.
Subtle earthy notes and a hint of vanilla complement layers of red raspberry, cherry cola and toasted oak.
Prophecy Pinot Noir is perfect for picnics, patio dining, barbeques and any other occasion. Experience simplicity at its best!
Here is a fun, playful red that evokes the essence of spring. The sustainably farmed grapes come from the ultra-premium vineyards of Lake County California. The blend consists of zinfandel with lesser amounts of Barbera, Petite Sirah, and Grenache. Aromas of dark cherries and plum are followed by flavors of blackberry pie, vanilla and spicy oak. Playtime Red is medium-bodied with plenty of ripe fruit and a long, smooth finish.
Pair with baby back ribs, bacon cheeseburgers, pizza and pulled pork sandwiches.
Locations Corse (Corsican white wine)
This unique gem is made from 100 percent Vermentino. Most people may not be familiar with this grape; however, it can produce high quality wines that over deliver for the price.
Locations Corse is a prime example revealing intense floral aromas and flavors of pear, Meyer lemon, pink grapefruit and almond. Vermentino is similar in style to a Sauvignon Blanc, yet it tends to have a creamier mouth-feel.
Pair with seafood, fish tacos, grilled chicken, hummus, garlic mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables.
Celebrate spring with this invigorating sparkling wine. Any traces of the winter blues will surely disappear after one sip of tropical fruit aromas leading into zesty flavors of citrus, sweet pineapple and apricot preserves.
Relax Bubbles is lively and balanced with a soft mineral note on the finish.
Enjoy with mild cheese, fruit, salads and seafood.
