Your "Everybody Will Love It Wine"
and it pairs with grilled zucchini steaks!

Gateway Red, Portugal

    A blend of 50% Touriga Franca, 30% Tinta Roriz and 20% Touriga Nacional.
2015 is a distinctive vintage which resulted in producing first-rate wines. Yields were relatively low with excellent fruit quality. 2015 was dryer with some humidity towards harvest time. Gateway was picked just before the September rains. Harvested at optimum ripeness. Fermented in stainless steel. Ripe fruits with hint of raspberry, blueberry and blackberry and some spice including cinnamon and nutmeg.
Sold out on the Internet. $11.99 @MetroWines


This winery was founded in 1648
and is currently in the hands of the 11th generation.
Light. Refreshing.Versatile.



Light. White. Different. Way Cool.

Fleshy, juicy and dry with notes of lemon pith, red apple skin and just ripe pear. 
Another Spanish varietal thriving in Lodi, Grenache Blanc exhibits
traditional aromas of lemon and lime coupled with well-pronounced minerality.
Crisp, bright flavors of citrus and under-ripe apricot lead into a silky smooth finish.
And at 12.8% alcohol, this is a Bottle for Brunch"!
$25 on Internet. $17.99 @MetroWines!


Last Call for Great American Road Trip Before Fall
50% of Americans find road trips more appealing than other
forms of travel due to the ability to be more spontaneous about activities
and stops, according to a survey of 1137 adults by Ford Travel Trends.

PS: I did not realize what good advice this was until last week. After 6 hours on the road from Chicago including rush hour traffic with two young, excitable greyhounds in tow, we thought we would stop at a motel, pick up some Italian food,  bottle of Wine, turn Seinfeld reruns and crash. That's when we found out that there are still DRY counties! Bottom line: Take a box of wine with you! Shop a stash @MetroWines.
