Chardonnay – A Refreshing White Wine with Fruity and Floral Notes

Chardonnay is a popular white wine that is renowned for its fruity, buttery and floral notes. It has an aroma of green apple, pear and citrus, while its flavour profile can range from apricot and honeysuckle to tropical fruits like pineapple. The complexity of chardonnay comes from its oak ageing, with undertones of vanilla or spices. Its popularity also owes to the fact that it pairs well with a variety of foods, including chicken and seafood dishes, creamy pasta dishes, salads, cheeses and fruit-based desserts. Whether you're looking for something special for a romantic evening or simply want a refreshing glass of white wine after a long day at work – Chardonnay is sure to satisfy your taste buds!

Beaujolais Nouveau – Light, Playful Red for Casual Dinners

Beaujolais Nouveau is a light, playful red wine perfect for casual family dinners or intimate gatherings with friends. Often available for purchase as soon as late summer each year, this is one of the youngest wines you can find. The grapes used to make it are harvested only a few weeks before release and fermentation are completed quickly in tanks as opposed to traditional oak barrels. As a result, it offers bright aromas of cherry and strawberry along with light tannin levels and flavours that range from just-picked raspberries to apple blossoms. Enjoy served slightly chilled on its own or paired with seasonal grilled dishes such as salmon or pork tenderloin for that iconic French flavour combination. Bon appétit!

Gamay – Soft Tannins and Subtle Spice for Every Occasion

Gamay is an excellent choice for any event or dinner. With its soft tannins and subtle spicy undertones, Gamay pairs wonderfully with a variety of dishes. Whether you're entertaining friends, celebrating a special occasion, or just looking for a great accompaniment to your evening meal, Gamay is sure to fit the bill. Its light body and fruit-forward characteristics make it very approachable to all types of wine drinkers without being overwhelming. So go ahead and give Gamay a try the next time you entertain - we promise you won't be disappointed!
