A selection of our most popular single-bottle gifts.

'365' Prosecco NV (Valdobbiadene, Italy)
'365' has been called the 'Dom Perignon of Prosecco'—it's refreshing, sophisticated, and delicious. The wine’s soft, bubbly body and long mineral finish can accompany a wide variety of foods, or be sipped on its own—‘365’ is the perfect toast to any occasion!

'Dylan' Chardonnay 2006 (Russian River Valley, USA)
Crisp and elegant with citrus and apple flavors - rated an 'Exceptional' 94 pts and 'Best Buy' by Wine &Spirits magazine. This complex, sophisticated cuvée wins regular applause from our customers  for being 'the California Chardonnay for people who are tired of California Chardonnays’!

‘Jocunda’ Grenache blend 2005 (Gigondas, France)
A bold blend of grenache, syrah and mouvèdre, tasting of ripe dark berries from old vines in an ancient Roman vineyard region. Just 200 cases of this very special, 91 pt cuvee were made—a creation by one of the most celebrated winemakers in the Rhône, Louis Barruol.

‘Altezza’ Sangiovese 2001 (Brunello di Montalcino, Italy)
A velvety, elegant Brunello from the prestigious southern hills of Montalcino, harvested according to the phases of the moon and then aged for 48 months in oak barrels. Ripe cherry and spiced plum, perfectly balanced with notes of spice and cocoa and delicate tannins.

'Etereo' Nebbiolo 2003 (Barolo, Italy)
A rich and complex Barolo with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, and roses, and a long, delicate finish. Not yet rated, 2001 vintage 95 pts by Wine Spectator.

'L'Exception' Merlot 2003 (France)
Acclaimed by Wine Spectator as, "Very ripe fruit aromas, with coffee and cappuccino character. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long vanilla and currant aftertaste. Delicious.”  Buy this wine now—alas, Alain Reynaud will not be making any more of this wine for us having sold his vineyard to the richest man in France. Wine Spectator 91 pts | Decanter magazine 4/5 stars

‘Soluna’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 (Napa Valley, USA)

'Sygnet' Shiraz 2003 (McLaren Vale, Australia)
An explosive 90pt Shiraz from the heart of McLaren Vale that “stands apart from most if its contemporaries”, says Wine &Spirits. Dark berry fruit, firm tannins—a fire-grilled T-bone steak's soulmate.
