This wide brand portfolio allows it to target a great variety of consumers throughout the world. San Pedro’s main plantations, the winery and the centenary underground cellar are located in Molina, at the Curicó Valley, 200 Km south from Santiago. An area gifted with gentle rolling hills and frank soils on volcanic tuff, with privileged climatic and geographical conditions for grape-growing. Here, San Pedro owns one of the largest continuous areas of vineyards in South America, with 1,200 hectares. But besides this, San Pedro counts with more than 1,500 hectares planted all along the Central Valley and in other Chile’s main viticulture valleys, such as Elqui, Casablanca, San Antonio-Leyda, Maipo, Cachapoal, Maule and Bío-Bío, being always in search of new and better origins and flavors for its wines.

One of best Bonarda in Oltrepo' pavese ! You can start with a really fresh 2009 till a really serious 2006. The wine becomes less fizzy and bubbling more concentrated. Fresh red fruits are predominant. It' very good with starters and pasta, expecially filled pasta as ravioli ( very typical in the Oltrepo') in a good beef broth or with a stew sauce. Also ideal for bollito misto ( boiled beef, chicken, salami, tongue...). The most interesting in my opinion is a really"natural" flavour is wine made with modern technology but in ancient style !

This wine is very inexpensive. With that being said it is a lot better than a lot of other wines that sell for more. It's not too oak-ey and not too full bodied. It is a great wine for the price. We regularlybuy this for $6.00.

A bottle is only $3.99, so it is no bad for daily wine.

Champagne Moutard is a traditional family run business situated in the picturesque village of Buxeuil, France. The vineyards are located in the southern part of Champagne, on the sunny slopes of the Cotes des Bar. Very old cellar books relate their activity as vine growers back to the 17th century. Region: France / Champagne / Eau de Vie Maker : Francois Moutard Notes : Abundance of ripe dark fruit on the nose with intense expressions of prunes on the palate, with a rich, long aftertaste. ABV : 45%

Gato Negro Chardonnay is pale yellow in color. The wine has aromas of fresh fruit, specifically bananas and good intensity. On the palate it is fruity, very ripe, good acidity, lending it a fresh pleasant finish.

Loire, FranceDomaine des Vieux Pruniers Sancerre is a white wine gem of 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley of France. Domaine des Vieux Pruniers is situated a mere 2.5 miles from Sancerre, in the village of Bu, known for its steep, amphitheater-like vineyards, where some of the hillsides approach 65 gradients, and prized for its limestone-rich soils. Christian Thirot-Fournier and his wife tend to their roughly 10 hectares of vines, including 7 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc planted to chalky limestone soils. Together they raise the wine from start to finish, from growing the grapes to bottling the wines. They are moving toward a more "sustainable" viticulture regime, and no herbicides are used for the majority of their parcels. Vieux Pruniers Sancerre is a pale yellow in color with crisp acidity. Medium in body, it is a clean, minerally, citrusy, racy style of Sancerre, with aromas of citrus, floral notes and stone. It offers clean flavors of lime, nectarine, orange zest, pear and mineral notes. The wine was aged for several months on its fine lees. It is long, clean and refreshing on the finish.Enjoy Vieux Pruniers Sancerre over the next 3-4 years with grilled salmon, fried oysters, sushi, chicken salad and goat cheese.

Pale green appley, grapefruity Grüner with a lively intermingling of crisp acidity and stony minerality. Finishes with a lingering touch of white smoke. Just ideal with green salads, anytime of year!

Floral aromas of violets and rose petals dance with wild strawberries on the nose of this wine. The mouthfeel, silky and refined, brightens with ripe chokeberry and currant, while touches of pipe tobacco and worn leather round out the sip. French and American oak make a lasting impression, leaving this wine with a balanced finish of toasted spices and refined tannins.- Winery Vineyard Source: Russian River Valley Monterey Clarksburg Barrel Program: 10 months in French and American Oak Wine pH: 3.67 Wine Acidity: 0.53g/100ml Alcohol: 13.5%
