2014 Gautheron ‘Emeraude’ Chablis, Burgundy, France
Regularly $24.99, Tasting Price $20.99
This is a pure expression of Chardonnay. The aroma is fragrant with lemon and mineral notes and a hint of hazelnut. This wine also achieves amazing complexity, it is ripe and flattering with a silky mouthfeel and very long satisfying finish. Any kind of seafood crudo, oysters or briny littlenecks are delightful with this wine.

2016 Ameztoi Txakoli Blanco, Getariako Txakolna, Spain
Regularly $19.99, Tasting Price $16.99
High-pitched aromas of lime zest, jasmine, chalky minerals and green tea, with a hint of pear in the background. Fresh and sharply focused on the palate, offering bitter citrus pith and green apple flavors. This is a great wine for fresh simply prepared seafood.

2015 La Striscia Chianti, Tuscany, Italy
Regularly $9.99, Tasting Price $8.49
This is a juicy, easy drinking red that is awash with sweet raspberry and red cherry fruit. Easy going flavors lend this wine to a myriad of food paring option. Try no-brainers like pasta and pizza. Even a nice steak would be great.

2015 Eraldo Revelli ‘Autin Lugh’ Dogliani, Piedmont, Italy
Regularly $23.99, Tasting Price $19.99
An expressive, single vineyard Dogliani that comes from the Revelli’s “long vineyard,” (Autin Lungh in Piemontese dialect) that has vines of 25 years. This wine is vinified and elevated in stainless steel casks for a year, maintaining all of its bright fruitiness. Autin Lungh shows a deeper, more persistent berry fruit and herbal notes with a longer, lingering finish. Try with simple brown butter and sage pasta.
