This crisp, un-oaked thrilli from Chile is a grand winner. Clean, crisp acidity makes this wine perfect for swordfish in a parcel or chicken piccata and for the money you won’t find a better deal. My search for value vino is a full time job, but for you I work 24/7. 🙂 Price: $10.00

Wine of The Week – 2008 Dragon’s Hollow

Deep red Cabernet with medium tannins and a nose of mint and blackberry….different not because it’s from China,  but because it has a light appearance and a full bodied taste. Chinese Cabernet is something everyone should try just for the wow factor. Price: $9.00
