It was love at first sight for Princess. This wine is fresh, and so flavorful and delicious. It has the "glug glug factor" that makes it hard to stop tasting and sharing with family and friends. This crisp wine is perfect with oysters, and all other shellfish. You will not find a wine anywhere is the US that gets close to the quality of this wine for the same price. Refreshing in more ways than one!
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Food Pairings: Do not be fooled that inexpensive wines can’t be good. From casual drinker to experienced wine sellers everyone who tasted this wine before we bought it loved it! It is super drinkable on its own and is perfect with grilled white fish in a lemon butter sauce or just as an aperitif with cheese and crackers or, popcorn!

Food Pairing: At ease with white, light and marinated meats, sushi or with Asian food, this Sauvignon is also quite successful by itself.
IGP Coteaux d'Enserune
Food pairing: This is one of the most delicious and intriguing viognier wines you can find anywhere. Made from organic grapes by a master oenologue, this is his own private cuvée. Notes of soft citrus and lychee with wonderful minerality, rather than the more common highly floral notes of Viognier. Wonderful with grilled fish, curried chicken, or with appetizers of cheese, olives and chips!
I.G.P. Pays d’Oc
Food pairing: If you have trouble sharing, then open this wine alone. Seriously. But if you love company too then serve on the weekend with Eggs Benedict Drenched in a Gorgeous Buttery Lemon Hollandaise; Crusty Chicken Pot Pie; or Roasted Pork Loin with Calvados Cream Sauce.
AOP Cotes de Roussillon
Grenache Gris, White Grenache, Roussanne
Food Pairings: This elegant white wine is from one of the finest female winemakers in the Roussillon, near the Spanish border. Hints of citrus and white peaches balanced with good fresh acidity and some weight in the mouth. It literally glides right down! Wonderful with grilled fish, veal blanquette, or a roasted chicken. A beauty!
Grenache blanc, Roussanne, Vermentino (a/k/a Rolle)
Food Pairings: The vines for this crisp, clean wine sit on windswept ridges high above caves with prehistoric drawings. The rocky limestone soil gives great freshness to this organic wine. Wonderful with oysters, fried calamari, pan fried fish, and aged cheeses.
I.G.P. Vin de Pays d’Oc
100% Sauvignon blanc

Côtes du Roussillon
55% grenache blanc, 25% grenache gris, 20% maccabeu
Food Pairings: This wine stood out among the others at a recent wine fair in Paris! It is a delicious "connoisseur" white wine. The grapes in this terroir in the Pyrenees foothills give herbal aromas of anise, wild fennel and also some floral notes. Surprise! One third of the wine is aged in French oak to give great subtlety and mouth feel to the wine. Delicious with baked fish, curried scallops and vegetarian couscous.
50% Vermentino, 30% Roussanne, 20% White Grenache
Food Pairings: This wine captured our hearts and palates the first time we tasted it! And we keep coming back for more. It is SO delicious. Made from organic grapes grown near the Mediterranean, you can almost taste the sea in the fruits and aromas of the grapes. This wine will delight with white fish, shellfish and oyster feasts. Try it with Salt Crusted Red Snapper and Whipped Olive Oil and Lemon Drizzle.
Our friend Verena Wyss is a master at growing organic Viognier grapes. This wine is sooo easy to drink. It has soft fruit and floral notes but with enough acidity to keep your palate interested. Very interested. Fabulous with Indian and Asian foods!
70% Grenache Blanc, 30% Roussanne

Vin de Pays Coteaux de Fontcaude
50% Chenin Blanc, 50% Grenache Blanc
Food pairing: This beautiful white wine is an untraditional blend of Chenin Blanc and Grenache Blanc. The result is elegant and flavorful with just the right amount of minerality. Think Shrimp Pad Thai, Grilled Lemongrass Chicken and Halibut Cheeks with Ginger-Orange Sauce.
I.G.P. Pays d'Oc
Food pairing: Our friend Verena Wyss is a master grower of organic viognier grapes and, of course, is also the winemaker at her beautiful domaine. This wine is very lightly oaked which produced a viognier with more depth and subtlety than we are used to in a 100% viognier. It is slightly spiced with classic floral notes. We love it! Try it with garlic and ginger chicken stir fry, or halibut baked in a mustard cream sauce. Thank you Verena!! Delicious...

IGP Cotes Catalanes
100% Grey Grenache
Food Pairings: This unique and delicious wine shows the elegance and finesse of the new wave in winemaking: the terracotta egg!! The organic grape juice is fermented and aged for 7 months in a terracotta egg. The ovoid shape creates perpetual movement of lees giving flavor and weight to the wine. This creates a wine with elegant apricot and peach aromas accented by wonderful minerality. This wine is expensive but SO worth it. Indulge with sole in lemon butter sauce, chicken milanese and pork glazed with honey and orange marmalade!
