White Wines

  • Moscato d’Asti DOCG has been produced in the Monferrato area of Piedmont since the 13th century. Straw yellow color with golden hues. Pleasantly sweet, with fragrant aromas of peach, orange blossoms and acacia flowers, with hints of sage and citrus fruits. Flavors of fresh white stone fruit linger on the palate. Wonderful as an aperitif, or try it with the “Dannon Muffins” from our Wines by Jennifer® Cookbook!
  • Located in the heart of Portugal’s Vinho Verde wine region, this family-owned winery has been making wines since 1870. This estate-grown blend of Loureiro (80%) and Alvarinho (20%) is bright and juicy in the mouth. Stone fruit flavors underlay floral scents of green fig and white grapefruit. Its maritime freshness will pair well with shrimp and asparagus.
  • The blend for this vibrant wine from the southwest of France is Columbard, Gros Manseng, and Ugni Blanc. These are white grapes from the Côtes de Gascogne district that historically would have been used for distillation into Armagnac. This wine has a bright acidity punctuated by an herbal and tropical fruit character that will keep you coming back for more!

Red Wines

  • Chianti Classico is the heartland of the Chianti wine region. It is the oldest and most traditional viticultural area where the blend by DOCG law must be a minimum of 80% Sangiovese. Riserva indicates the wine has spent a minimum of 24 months aging, of which three months must be in the bottle. Dark and fruit-forward, with a beautiful profile of ripe, succulent cherry fruit, it’s Tuscan sunshine in a bottle!
  • The Spanish often say, "Rioja is the king of Spain and Tempranillo is the king of Rioja.” This impressive Tempranillo blend shows ripe cherry and blackcurrant on the nose and in the mouth. Excellent texture, with good heft and energy, it finishes smooth and sweet, with fine-grained tannins providing strength and grip.
  • Bordeaux Superieur is a designation given to wines that have slightly more stringent production regulations than generic Bordeaux. They tend to come from older vines with lower yields, and spend more time aging before release. This traditional Bordeaux blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc was aged for 12 months in 30% new oak. Smooth yet robust, with abundant dark blackberry and spice notes.
