Easter is upon us and this year I thought it would be fun to offer a few more choices in different categories. Hopefully you will see a few surprises.
1. Vouvray: Les Lys Vouvray 2015
Made from 100% Chenin Blanc this is an off-dry white with notes of delicate perfume, stone fruit and tropical fruit, a hint of almond, and a pleasant dose of honey.

3. Pinot Gris: Willm Pinot Gris Reserve 2014
