          WINE From Chris & Tony :
 
 
 
          ONE From France :
 
     1) A dry white blend from the DOMAINE VETRICCIE, on the Ile de Beaute , $9.99, a dry and tasty, distinct blend of 50% Vermentino and 50% Chardonnay, from France, this is a great wine to sip indoors or outside when you grill or have a plate of assorted appetizers, with salads, and so much more!
 
 
          ONE From Germany :
 
     2) 2015 Muller-Thurgau Halbtrocken white from Germany's Rheinhessen, region, a liter bottle at $15.99, a graet refresher, off-dry, what a treat when you want some more fruit in your mouth and less acidity or heaviness. This is great to sip all by itself, also great when you use a lot of butter in your recipes, a treat. More wine here as the bottle is as liter, and not a 750ml bottle!
 
          ONE From Australia :
 
     3) Shiraz 2014 from the Adelaide Hills in South Australia, made by SIDEWOOD, $16.49 a bottle,  : " Handpicked from individually selected rows on our 300 acre estate. This cool climate wine was carefully crafted in the winery, and is the result of an extraordinary vintage. Complex and elegant, rich ruby red in clor, with brooding aromas of black and red fruit., enhanced by tantalizing notes of cassis and nutmeg derived from 15 months in French oak barriques. ... " With 14.5% alcohol by volume, chill 30-40 minutes and enjoy the energy, the power, the force and concentration of firm deep flavors! Yes.
 
         ONE From Virginia :
 
     4) Viognier 2015 from Charlotte County, VA. from Gabriele Rausse and his son made at the GABRIELE RAUSSE Winery, $18.99. This is great when you want to drink a wine made from all the grapes grown in Virginia, by the grandfather of Virginia wines ( going back to 1976 ,the principal gardener at Monticello for years now ), - and you want the purety and the freshness, the brightness that you can and should always get! The best yes, such amazing quality, and a value as well. Highly recommended.
 
 
          ONE From New York State :
 
     5) 2014 Dry Red Blend, $19.99 a bottle,  of 55% Merlot, 40% Corot Noir, and 5% Malbec: produced and bottled by OENOLOGY, calles SHINDIG, this is lively, bright, edgy, refreshing, with bing cherry tartness, and weight from the Corot grape, chill 40 minutes and enjoy with a meal of smoked foods, anything off the grill, what a great and refreshing, distinct wine this is! Yes.
 
 
          ONE More Wine  Wine From France :
 
       6) ' Roche Gravit ' 2015 100% Gamay, from the town of JUlienas, made by ALBERT BICHOT, this is  not a beefier ( like the Fleurie we have from Manoir du Carra, $19.99  - not a beefier version, more muscle, power, tannins and acidity than some Cru Beaujolais wines, and this needs a meal as a result. Chill ), and so this 2015 On Special at $19.99 is softer, rounder, more gentle and silky, rounder, kinder for this heat and humidity when you want to sip your red. Medium-to-lighter-bodied, chill 40 minutes and enjoy with or without food. Cheers.
