Two Women on Wine: Expanding your wine horizons

When we talk with customers and others regarding the type of wines they enjoy, more often than not we hear the same varietals mentioned. If a customer tells us they like white wine, then Chardonnay is a frequent response. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel rule in the red varietals. As wine purveyors, our goal is to guide you through the maze of wines and, more importantly, help you gain confidence in your wine exploration.
