W. & J. Graham & Co.:
Graham’s Port was founded in 1820 by Scottish brothers William and John Graham in Oporto, Portugal.

Graham’s Port was founded in 1820 by Scottish brothers William and John Graham in Oporto, Portugal. The brothers, who already came from a successful entrepreneurial family, dedicated themselves to producing a line of fine vintage Ports. In 1890, they became one of the first Port quintas (estates) to source fruit from the upper Douro Valley and established the property Quinta dos Malvedos. The quality of the grapes from this vineyard is a major contribution to the finesse of their Ports. In that same year, the brothers opened the Graham’s Lodge in Vila Nova di Gaia, to store and showcase the wines. Vintages of Graham’s Port became famous for their structure and elegance, particularly 1909, 1912, 1924, 1927 and especially 1948, a wine Jancis Robinson said was among the finest she’d ever tasted. In 1970, Graham’s was sold to the Symington family, who themselves had a legacy of quality Port production dating back centuries. They have upheld the traditions begun by the Graham’s and continue to produce outstanding Ports as sole proprietors of the operation. Aside from vintage, Graham’s also produces Ports in every style from Tawny to Ruby, Late Bottle Vintage (LBV), Crusted and White, as well as their value release the Six Grapes.  Read less

This medium-bodied Merlot reveals a fresh, black cherry aroma, with hints of tobacco and herbal spice. With a smooth texture and moderate tannins, it boasts attractive, smoky, black cherry and spice f

The goal with this wine is to showcase our terroir.My philosophy is to bring together vibrancy and freshness with rich, ripe fruit characters. Shiny light golden color. The nose is full of ripe lush fruit-lime, pear and peach,layered with beautiful yeast notes and minerality. The mouth-feel is full, with a fine creaminess well-balanced by playful acidity and flinty character. The finish is lively with fine lees and hints of toasted oak. This perfect food wine shows why Chardonnay is such a great variety. -Roman Roth, Winemaker/Technical Director

Feines Hellgelb mit grünlichen Reflexen. Süssliche Fruchtaromen, lebendig, frisch. Am Gaumen rund, leicht süsslich und fein.

This wine’s scents of bread crust and white peach yield to straightforward flavors of apple and pear, with a texture that’s mineral and creamy at once. Well priced, and well suited to a tuna sandwich.

This soft, fruity red possesses the cherrylike fruitiness and smooth texture characteristic of the Merlot variety. It should appeal especially to dealcoholized wine drinkers seeking some of the health benefits of red wine along with the sophistication of a world-class varietal."

Everyone loves a great glass of wine, but shopping for wine can be confusing. Thats why I created the Skinnygirl California White Blend. Its an aromatic and pleasingly crisp blend of my favorite white grapes with notes of peach and apricot. This white wine is balanced with a lingering finish and is only 100 calories per serving so you can enjoy it guilt-free. - Bethenny Frankel

Fruit-forward, insanely loveable Petite Sirah-based Red Wine. The minute you uncork the bottle, the boysenberry fruit leaps from your glass. With soft, supple tannins, this wine is great with food or without. Serve it at cellar temperature to allow the flavors to evolve in the glass. - WineryAcid: 0.63 g/100mlPH: 3.71Residual Sugar: 8.1 g/LAlcohol %: 13.5%
