“Onorata” is a refreshing white wine made from a grape called Favorita. Round yet rich with lovely notes of apple, pear, and white flowers. An absolute crowd-pleaser! Try with scallop crudo.

2015 Corvidae ‘Wiseguy’ Sauvignon Blanc, Yakima Valley, Washington

2016 Chateau de Breze Saumur Blanc, Loire Valley, France
Regularly $19.99, June Special Price $16.99
Peach and nectarine on the nose. The palate offers nicely firm citrus flavors paired with a slightly honeyed sweetness. Sappy and juicy, finishing with pleasing persistence do wonders with tarragon chicken.

2015 Zilliken ‘Butterfly’ Riesling, Mosel, Germany
Regularly $19.99, June Special Price $16.99
Fresh apple with an undertone of wet stone and subtle smokiness mark the Saarburg-typical parameters of this barely off-dry, wine. Its 12.5 percent alcohol makes for a considerable sense of stuffing. A hint of anise adds appeal to the satisfyingly sustained finish that will pair well with an assortment of foods from delicate fish to grilled pork.

2016 Chateau  Roquefort ‘Corail’ Rosé, Provence, France
Regularly $16.99, June Special Price $14.44
Aromas of tangerine, strawberry, melon and white flowers show very good clarity and a zesty mineral element. Juicy and sharply focused, offering vibrant red berry and pit fruit flavors that put on weight and pick up an orange pith nuance with air. Try with roasted chicken.

2016 Bodegas Olivares Rosado, Jumilla, Spain
Regularly $11.99, June Special Price $9.99
Intense aromas of fresh red berries and rose oil, with suggestions of white pepper and dusty minerals adding vivacity. Spicy and incisive on the palate, offering tangy redcurrant and strawberry flavors and a touch of bitter orange zest.

2015 Schnaitmann Lemberger, Wurttemburg, Germany
Regularly $24.99, June Special Price $20.99
Conveys an impression of sweet extract, with flavors of ripe plum and wild cherry extending through the finish. Already nicely balanced and approachable, this wine will gain in complexity with more time in bottle. This wine has a spice component that will help pair with lamb.

2015 Domaine du Piaugier ‘Grange du Piaugier’ Cotes du Rhone, Rhone Valley, France
Regularly $14.99, June Special Price $12.74
A wild, pungent bouquet evokes fresh red and dark berries, licorice and game, and a peppery element adds vivacity. Juicy and light on its feet, offering bitter cherry and cassis flavors that unfold slowly with air. Grilled meat is always a good choice with Cotes du Rhone.

2014 Owen Roe Sharecropper Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley, Washington
Regularly $16.99, June Special Price $14.44
This small production wine from Washington State offers the rich flavor of Cabernet without the over-ripeness some warmer climate Cabs suffer from. Pair it with anything grilled this summer.

2014 Bodegas Olivares Altos de la Hoya, Jumilla, Spain
Regularly $12.99, June Special Price $10.99
This rich and flavorful wine from South-Eastern Spain comes from 80+ year old vines. You won’t find a better old vine value, dense with dark fruit notes, grilled ribs will stand up to its smoky nature.

NV Ramona Pink Grapefruit Wine Cooler, New York
Regularly $19.99, June Special Price $16.99
Made with a Sicilian Moscato base (AKA, Zibbo) that provide a a delicious floral note that is balanced by natural grapefruit juice and a touch of cane sugar with the intent to take the pretense out of wine. Great for any occasion where people may take the food and wine pairing more seriously than it really needs like barbecued ribs.

2016 Elio Perone Moscato d’Asti, Piedmont, Italy
Regularly $16.99, June Special Price $14.44
Chablis-like in its energy, the Sourgal exudes precision and classiness throughout. White peach, orchard fruit and flowers abound in this vivid, beautifully delineated Moscato from Stefano Perrone. This is desert but would accompany a bowl of fresh fruit quite nicely.
