Four Graces Pinot Blanc $16.99  White nectarine and honeysuckle jump from the glass followed by hints of vanilla bean, honey and Asian pears. On the palate tropical fruits like pineapple and guava mingle with Satsuma oranges and finish with a soft cream and velvety textures. Bieler Pere & Fis Aix-Provence Rose $12.99 The Bieler family is renowned around the world for their value priced Rose’s that over-deliver for their price.  The Aix region of Provence is one of southern France’s best Rose areas and most wines from there are usually $20+.  This Rose displays a light, bright cranberry color in the glass.
