Piattelli Loscano The Winemaker Chardonnay 100% Chardonnay with aromas of apple blossom and honeydew. The honeydew continues on the palate with stone fruits of apricots and peaches. Great acidity to pair with food. Uco Valley, Argentina

Piattelli Vineyards Malbec + Tannat This wine has great impact all through the stages of tasting and its passage through the mouth is superb. The wine has hues of violet and contours of black that create a fierce scarlet color. On the nose, spicy and ripe red fruit aromas mix together with eucalyptus and fig notes. In the mouth, it greets with a pleasant entrance given by the ripe, firm and intense tannins, the result of a slow polyphenolic maturation. It has a high structure and acidity that are balanced in a persistent finish. Cafayate, Argentina

Bodegas Juan Gil The origins of Bodegas Juan Gil date from 1916 when Juan Gil Gimènez, great grandfather of the present generation, began getting involved in the world of wines and built a winery in the heart of Jumilla, Spain. His son, Juan Gil Guerrero, dedicated his entire life to the wine business, however, it was the third generation who really consolidated the winery. Juan Gil Gonzalez, together with his brother Paco, the founder’s grandsons, forged an image of quality, reliability and efficiency. The present Gil generation continually strive to maintain and improve the Juan Gil standard, which is evident through the remarkable wines they produce.
