International Celebration Half-Case
6 top selections from the new hotspot for wine
Chile is the emerging hotspot for international wine. Warm, dry, and running from the snow-peaked Andies mountain range to the glistening Pacific Ocean, Chile’s Colchagua Valley was recently named Region of the Year by Wine Enthusiast. Taste what the buzz is about when you open this selection of six excellent Chilean wines.
2015 Qapay Sauvignon Blanc - Qapay Sauvignon Blanc is a citrusy and fresh white wine made from central Chilean grapes. Taste for grapefruit and green apple followed by zesty green fruits and a long, crisp finish. It’s ideal with arugula, fennel, or roasted bell peppers salads, and richer white meats like pork and lobster.
2016 Cachil Sauvignon Blanc Reserva - This bright Sauvignon Blanc was produced in Colchagua Valley, the most prestigious wine region in Chile. It features a vibrant acidity and layers of citrus fruit and freshly cut grass.
2015 Cantus Sangiovese di Puglia - Puglia, Italy… Where a beautiful balance of bright sun and refreshing ocean breezes nourish bountiful crops of tomatoes, olives, and wine grapes... Where the sumptuous Italian dishes are complemented by satisfying local wine like 2015 Cantus Sangiovese di Puglia I.G.T. This dry and earthy Italian red has a Gold Medal-winning heritage and brings any meal to life with bold berry and cherry flavors, and a hint of rich figs.

Nectar Grenache Noir - The name Nectar isn’t a reference to the wine's style but to nektar, the drink of the Gods. True to the heavenly style of French Grenache, this herbaceous red is rich with flavors of dried strawberries, plus a balance of tobacco and white pepper.
