Looking for a bite.

Brotte La Grivelière Cotes Du Rhone Tete De Cuvee 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Maison Brotte is pictured on the front label of this Cotes Du Rhone cuvee, named for the Thrush bird species that overpopulate this region of southern France and feast on vineyard grapes. While Brotte is known for producing Chateauneuf Du Pape, cheers for this negociant label which offers a taste of the region at a very accessible price. La Grivelière Tete De Cuvee 2014 opens with aromas of blueberry and raspberry filled doughnuts, and the palate carries through with aromatic fruit, warm spices plus a firm gravelly backbone that is looking for a fun bite to eat.

Climbing Mount Ventoux.

Caravinserail In Fine Ventoux Rose 2015 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Avignon's Caravinserail produces this striking Rosé on the southern slopes of the 6,273 foot Mount Ventoux, the vineyard elevation allowing slow ripening. Besides the origination of this wine, Mount Ventoux is also known as perhaps the most famous and feared of the great climbs of the Tour de France. In Fine is a delicious taste of Provence and a great buy.

Finding your sister in the wine business.

Truvée Central Coast Red Blend 2013 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • The women behind Truvée are passionate about making wine and connecting with wine lovers around the world. But the real story is how they nearly missed finding each other in life. Separated early on in life, half-sisters Andréa and Robin McBride were living seemingly parallel lives 6,500 miles apart in wine growing regions in New Zealand and California. Their reunion was a turning point that put them on the same path making wine, beginning in 2010. Cheers to finding their wines locally which are excellent for the price.

The Aragon Express.

Evodia Aragon Grenache 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Aragon is located in the north of Spain, from the Pyrenees to the Iberian plateau. Garnacha is widely grown and can make big wines that are uniquely expressive of this area. Evodia 2014 is deliciously affordable, fruit forward and looking for a bite to eat.

Pebbles, denim and wine for Popes.
Chateau Virgile Rosé 2015.

Château Virgile Costières De Nîmes Rosé 2015 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Costières De Nîmes is now part of the Rhône wine area, although wines have been made here for 2000+ years. This delightfully modern aromatic rosé is great by itself or the acidity will wash down rich bites in fashion.
