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 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.

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

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."

Named after a well-known Washington, DC wine merchant, Jim Arsenault, the 2011 Wrongo Dongo is 100% Mourvedre from the appellation of Jumilla, a viticultural region first discovered by Jorge Ordonez. This totally tank-fermented and aged effort is one of the top bargains in the wine world. Deep ruby/purple-colored with notes of blue and black fruits, crushed rocks, earth, forest floor and pepper, this medium to full-bodied red over-delivers. Since its inception, it has been a terrific bargain. Drink it over the next several years. (sourced from vines planted on limestone-dominated soil; no oak): Bright purple. Intense aromas of black and blue fruits, with a spicy overtone. Powerful, sharply delineated boysenberry and cherry flavors show very good intensity and gain sweetness with air. Closes with zesty cut, lingering spiciness and a hint of dusty tannins.

Bot River, South AfricaWildekrans Pinotage is a must-try in the expansive world of red wine gems. We enjoyed a visit to this very special vineyard in April 2009 to taste their latest releases and tour the winery with winemaker William Wilkinson. Wildekrans Estate is a boutique winery nestled in the serene Bot River Valley in the Walker Bay wine ward, approximately 100km southeast of Cape Town, just beyond beautiful False Bay. Situated on the Atlantic Ocean, Walker Bay is also the breeding grounds for the famous Southern Right Whale. Pinotage is the signature grape of South Africa, the result of crossing Cinsault with Pinot Noir back in 1925. Wildekrans consists of 35 hectares of grapes, all planted in a clay-rich subsoil mixed with a topsoil of stone and sand which ensures earthy red wines with silky tannins. The Wildekrans mission statement is "to produce wines that compete with the top twenty percent of the world's premium white and red growing regions. These wines must be easy to enjoy, good with food and represented in all price categories." We believe Wildekrans is succeeding admirably in their mission!Wildekrans Pinotage is 100% Pinotage sourced from low-yielding trellised vineyards--grown, made and bottled on the estate. It is bright, deep garnet red in color, with a nose of plums, cherries, vanilla, spice and earth. Medium-full in body with moderate acidity, this Pinotage has a silky texture with flavors of raspberries, jammy plum, cherry, mocha and spice that linger on the palate. 80% of this wine was matured for 12 months in medium toasted French oak and 20% in heavy toasted American oak. Softly balanced with ripe, complex fruit flavors and a long, smooth finish.Enjoy Wildekrans Pinotage with spicy meats, grilled chicken, BBQ ribs and ripe, aromatic cheeses.
