Join us as we kick off the first one in Columbus!

1.Charles de Fere Cuvee Jean Louis , NV $15.99

Bright and fruity on the nose, this wine exudes aromas typical of Chenin Blanc –apples, apricots and a hint of honey. The palate holds an explosion of fine bubbles followed by a smooth, fruity finish.

2.Auguste Bonhomme Vouvray $14.99

August Bonhomme has produced a value driven Vouvray, which is unheard of. With a bouquet of honeysuckle, quince, marzipan, ginger, and apricot, this proves amazingly dense and rich in the mouth.

3.Les Trois Couronnes Cotes du Rhone $10.99

tremendous richness upfront on the palate with lots of attractive crushed black fruits, especially plums, loganberries, elderberry fruit and sloe fruit, then comes spiced morello cherry juice, black tea, fig stew and licorice root.

4.Chateau Bel Air La Perriere Bordeaux $12.99

This wine is structured and firm, with dark tannins and a core of smoky, bitter flavors.

5.Les Trois Couronnes Chateauneuf du Pape $41.99
