    Aia Vecchia Lagone

    Tuscany, Italy ($14.99)

    We paired this with pork belly when we collaborated with N'tini's Restaurant for our annual wine dinner and boy was it good. This wine drinks more like a Californian wine but still has that underlying rustic Italian earthiness. Pair this with any bold cheeses or grilled red meats. (17090 • 750 ml)

    Ponzi Chardonnay Reserve

    Oregon ($32.19)

    This Chardonnay is whole-cluster pressed and aged in French oak with 100% malolactic fermentation. You will notice candied banana and vanilla on the nose, and the palate tastes of lemon meringue pie. Finishes crisp.

    Enjoy this wine with grilled shrimp and chicken dishes.
