Lone Birch Pinot Gris, Yakima Valley Washington (suggested retail $11.99) The family behind Lone Birch has been farming in the Yakima Valley for over four generations.  One of the pinnacle landmarks on the farm is the 70 year old Lone Birch Tree that resides near the vineyard and was planted by their great-great-grandfather. This Pinot Gris has an enticing bouquet of tropical fruit leads to a well-balanced, medium-bodied mouthfeel with luscious flavors of pineapple, pear, and white peach. Try this wine with shellfish, crab cakes or calamari.

Domane de Pellehaut Harmonie de Gascogne Rosé, France (suggested retail $10.99)  This Southern French style dry rosé is an intense raspberry pink with a hint of strawberry on the nose, and a bit of grapefruit on the palate. This Vin de Pays Des Côtes de Gascogne is predominantly Merlot, with accents of Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Syrah.  It is a great summer wine for those who like dry reds, but want something more refreshing.  Try it on a French picnic featuring charcuterie, olives, cheeses, and a baguette under the arm.

Echeverria Classic Collection Carmenère, Curico Valley Chile (suggested retail $11.99)  This sustainable estate winery is the setting for a traditional and respectful viticulture approach, where mother nature along with precision viticulture allow their organically grown grapes to reach their maximum potential. This Carmenere exhibits aromas of stewed berry fruits, olive and herbs which combine to form a soupy bouquet. This is fairly racy, with a touch of spiky tartaric acid creating mild astringency. It finishes with stewy, roasted flavors of black fruits and carob finish herbal. This wine will stand up to any red meat off of the grill.

Euthalia Nero d’ Avola, Terre Siciliane, Italy (suggested retail $14.99)  This wine is produced at a cooperative that is known for high quality wines that are expressive of the area they come from. This fruity red is garnet in color with aromas of strawberry, cherry and flinty minerals. Aged in stainless steel in order to preserve bright fruit notes, cherry and plum flavors joined meaty elements and hints of Mediterranean herbs in the medium body.  White peppercorn, earth and raisin notes comprise the hearty finish. This wine works well with tomato based pasta dishes or even a burger off of the grill.

La Slina “Rocco Rosso” Dolcetto di Ovada Superiore (suggested retail $13.99)  La Slina is located in the ancient town of Castelletto d'Orba in Piedmont. Giorgio and Maria Cichero are the owners of this little vineyard. Rocco Rosso is a classic Dolcetto - exactly the type of everyday drinking wine you would remember from your travels in Piedmont. This wine is bright, clean, fresh and fuity and is great by itself  or with pizza or light pasta dishes.

Wild Horse GSM, Central Coast California (suggested retail $17.99)    Wild Horse Central Coast GSM is made with Grenache and Mourvèdre that bring softness, red fruit, and spice, while the Syrah brings structure, color, and high-tone dark fruit. Aromatics are reminiscent of blueberry pie, with intense dark fruit, and hints of vanilla and brown sugar. Blueberry, coupled with notes of ripe plum and vanilla, transfers to the palate and is carried through to the finish with soft tannins.
