Valparaiso | Casablanca Valley | Chile: Sauvignon-Blanc Reserve (William Cole

Cape Town | Cape Winelands | South Africa: The View White Blend (Delaire Graff) This cuvée of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon will conquer the hearts of wine lovers everywhere with its indulgently tropical notes of grapefruit and passion fruit and its undertones of nettles, which add a slightly green and balancing note.

Verona | Italy: Lugana Vigne Alte (Zeni)
This wine has an elegantly floral nose with aromas of apricot, citrus and a bouquet of flowers, complemented with subtle notes of nuts, butter and a little acacia. Its mild acidity is not too heavy on the palate.

Bordeaux | France: Blaye Grand Reserve 2016 (Château Monconseil-Gazin)
