Salentien Primus, Pinot Noir

This is one of the best Pinot Noirs in the country. Simply gorgeous and abounding with cherries and smooth oak.

Mendel, Unus

A stunning Malbec driven blend from Roberto de la Motta’s boutique winery in Lujan. Powerful and interesting.

Dante Robino, Bonarda

Bonarda is one of the most planted varietals in Argentina, but not many people make it as a single varietal. Dante Robino does, and here it shines. Fruity and easy drinking.

Alta Vista, Premium Torrontes

A triple harvest gives this great Salta Torrontes good acidity, fruit and body. Balanced, elegant and a great example of Argentina’s famous white.

Benegas, Meritage

This Cabernet Franc driven blend is supreme. Velvety tannins with black pepper, dark fruit and a hint of mint.

Tapiz, Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc

One of the only wineries to do a single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc, this is terrific value with lots of tropical fruit and citrus notes.

Pulenta Estate, Pinot Gris

One of the many bows to Pulenta’s arrow, this Pinot is a great afternoon tipple. Green apples and white flowers abound.
