*2018 Domaine de la Bastide Rosé, Cotes du Rhone, France - This fresh, barely-there-pink rose is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. Ripe summer red berry fruits, dry and refined on the palate with a crisp refreshing finish. Perfect with shellfish and caprese salad.
*2017 Manoir du Carra Beaujolais-Villages, Beaujolais, France – “The 2017 Beaujolais-Villages Cuvée Non Filtré reveals a rich bouquet of smoky cherries and cassis. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied, youthfully chewy and attractively flavorful, with a crunchy core of fruit.” (WA 9/18)
2017 Domaine Marc Portaz Apremont, Savoie, France -  Pure Jacquère, a native white grape to the mountainous Savoie region in France. This refreshing wine is naturally low alcohol (usually 11.5%), making it a great pick-me-up after a long day.

2018 Elvio Tintero Langhe Favorita, Piedmont, Italy- 100% Favorita, a white Italian wine grape and a close relative of Vermentino, grown primarily in the Piedmont region,  Peach, lemon peel and herbal notes and a whiff of saline minerality in this crisp dry white wine.
2018 Domaine de Fenouillet Vin de Pays de Vaucluse, Rhone, France - A blend of the hybrid grape “Marsellan” (a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache) and Merlot raised in cement for six months before bottling. It’s a silky wine with a rich core of core of dark berried fruit with some cracked pepper notes. It finishes with good acid and refined tannins.
2018 Braai Cabernet Sauvignon, Western Cape, South Africa
- A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot) A great wine for grilled meat (Braai is Afrikaans for Barbeque). Aromas of dark berries, earth and a touch of smoke; spicy on the palate with refined tannins. It is a crowd pleasing cabernet.
