2018 Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico: Chianti is one of the most popular Italian wines - it's delicious, pairs well with many foods and is priced low. This $17.99 wine is an example of the tremendous value that exists from the Chianti region of central Tuscany. With 93 points, don’t miss this one! Serve with grilled meats, pastas with red sauce or wild game.

2016 Owl Ridge Napa Cabernet Sauvignon: This 93+ point Napa Valley Cabernet comes from an outstanding vintage and is only $19.99! This wine is a carefully sourced blend from three coveted, ultra-premium Napa vineyards – two in Oakville and one in Calistoga. This is a fabulous example of how well wines in Napa can be made at this price level.

2019 Gerard Fiou Sancerre Terroir Tilex: Made from 64-year-old vines, this delightful wine comes from Gerard Fiou, a small family domaine located in the Loire Valley in north-central France. “The 2019 bottling is young and lovely, jumping from the glass in a mix of gooseberry, tangerine, flinty minerality, cut grass and citrus blossoms in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and intensely flavored, with an excellent core, fine mineral signature, zesty acids and a long, complex and very nicely balanced finish. Fine juice.” – John Gilman. Drink this Sancerre now – 2027. Only $22.99 / bottle.

2017 Brewer-Clifton Chardonnay Santa Rita Hills: Brewer-Clifton is one of California's top producers, and this 95 point Chardonnay does not disappoint! Founded in 1995 by Greg Brewer and Steve Clifton, Greg Brewer was named the Winemaker of the Year in 2020 by Wine Enthusiast. Described as “positively stellar” by Vinous Media, we couldn’t agree more! Add in this $26.99 bottle to your wine rotation before it’s sold out.
