Aegerter Cremant de Bourgogne every one of us tasted this wine and responded that we needed to get this here as soon as possible. We have lots of great sparkling wines that we love, but this will really fill a need we have sensed with our customers for a long time: an affordably-priced French sparkling wine, that is stylistically showy without being heavy-handed, and delivered with presentation and gift-quality packaging.
Innocent Bystander Moscato. Aussie moscato doesn’t come better than this. Bright fuchsia color. Intense fruit, which persists and satisfies, and doesn’t rely on sugar. Traditionally made from 100% old vine Muscat varieties (Gordo) and Black Muscat (Muscat of Hamburg) sourced exclusively from established growers in Northern Victoria's Swan Hill area.
A to Z Pinot Noir is a favorite and its on sale now. For anyone looking to get an excellent, ready to drink expression of an Oregon Pinot - this is it. A to Z is a "negociant" style wine operation. Meaning, they don't own vineyards - but instead source their grapes for production. This allows for consistency from vintage to vintage. A classic Pinot nose of velvet cherries and a touch of earthiness leads to a bright and silky finish. On sale now for $5 off a bottle

Drew Fullers staff pick is Minnesota's own Alexis Bailly Seyval Blanc. It shows bright, crisp citrus fruit, lively acidity, and a dry, elegant finish. This wine will pair perfectly with lighter meals like salads, grilled chicken and pan-fried fish, goat cheese, as well as garlicky pesto. I heartily recommend that you try this wonderful wine, which serves as a great example of the quality of Minnesota grown and produced wines. Sale 13.49 bottle - Case $161.88
