Cuvée du Vatican Réserve de l'Abbé Blanc 2017
Long-time Cuvée du Vatican devotee Robert Parker raves that winemaker Jean-Marc Diffonty is “doing a fabulous job.” Wait till you uncork this NEW, exclusive Côtes-du-Rhône white, with its layers of luscious nectarine, honeysuckle, and spice.
Bees Knees Chenin Blanc Viognier 2019
“South Africa’s white blends are its gift to the world of wine,” says Master of Wine Tim Atkin. After you try this popular blend of zesty Chenin Blanc and luscious Viognier (from one of the country’s most acclaimed estates), we bet you’ll agree.
Podere Altero Bianco 2016
Sofia Barbanera was so inspired by her great-grandfather – the dynamic Altero, founder of the family winery – that she made this zippy wine in his honor. A racy, complex blend of four grapes with loads of juicy fruit flavor. Very limited supply.
Castel del Lago Garda DOC 2018
Grown near the Veneto’s Lake Garda, this lovely gem marries elegant Garganega with creamy Chardonnay. Critic Luca Maroni rated the inaugural vintage 95 points and raved, “soft, expressive, and perfectly balanced.” Wait until you taste the fresh 2018.
Terre de Cocagne 2019
Charmed by southern France’s local grapes like Loin de l’Oeuil and Mauzac, winemaker Nicole McPheeters has made it her mission to reintroduce wine fans to the delights of Gaillac’s Côtes du Tarn. A crisp, citrusy alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.
Les Vivandières 2018
Named for the brave French women who cared for troops on the battlefield (and offered wine for courage), Les Vivandières hails from premium Ventoux (near iconic Châteauneuf-du-Pape). With a top gold and vibrant fruit flavor, it’s sure to impress.
Pierre Brecht Cuvée Cinq 2018
France’s premium Alsace region produces some of the country’s finest whites – as you’ll taste with this gold-medal exclusive. From a 350-year-old family estate, it marries Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Muscat for layers of ripe, stone fruit flavor.
Los Hermanos Manzanos Blanco Barrica 2017
You may know Rioja’s reds – but its whites are also delicious. See for yourself with this acclaimed, barrel-aged find from a top estate (whose wines tend to land on major Top 10 lists). Reminds us of a good white Burgundy, minus the huge price tag.
Ultima Edizione Bianco NV
Our customers love Farnese Vini’s Ultima Edizione red, so we were thrilled when they made this white version. A unique blend of Pecorino, Sauvignon Blanc, and Moscato, it debuted to 98 points from critic Luca Maroni and boasts luscious fruit flavors.
Lobo e Falcão Branco 2018
Wine Spectator calls Portugal “the most exciting wine place on the planet.” And we’re pretty excited about this aromatic (and acclaimed!) white from a 17th-century estate. Filled with elegant peach and spice, it’s lovely with Thai takeout.
