Argentina + Canada Day Toast: June 25 Vintages Wine Release



Alright...here we go again. "The Heat Is On" Argentina as the primary focus of this . With Canada Day celebrations around the corner, a few wines throughout the country (including Quebec) were highlighted - but none made my cut.

Many great value white wines in this Release. If you're looking for a dry offering, seek the Chardonnay (USA), Vinho Verde (Port.), Vernaccia di San Gimignano (Italy) or the Torrontés (Arg.). The other white wines are all off-dry - something sweeter for your taste buds.

A couple of rosés once again made my list - and I will likely pick up one of these on Saturday. Enjoy this week`s selection!
