Another easy winner from the beloved “Boutanche” series — liter-size, “glou-glou” wines for everyday drinking created by some of the world’s best natural winemakers for the importer Selection Massale. Unsurprisingly, Minot’s version — a clean, gulp-able Loire Valley red — is a delight.

Tullia is another of our all-time favorite dry-yet-fruity affordable bubbles! Straw yellow in color, with an intensely fruity and fresh bouquet reminiscent of spear wood flowers, wisteria, wild apple, and mountain honey, plus a fine and persistent perlage... honestly, what’s not to love about it?
