Fuzelo Vinho Verde 2013 -Vinho Verde is all about biting acidity and that slight effervescent prickle, and this wine has plenty of both. High acidity can be an acquired taste, but once you’ve caught the bug it’s like being a roller-coaster fanatic: the bigger the better. Meant for sipping outside on a too-hot summer day, this wine will also fare well with sushi—and its lemon-lime flavors make it a natural fit for for almost any fish preparation. The acidity might strip the enamel off your teeth, but at least you’ll have a great time. It’s wonderfully clean, full of the smell of stone and citrus and totally refreshing. $7.99
The Pinot Project Pinot Noir 2012 – The Pinot Project was founded in 2009 by well-known wine importer Michael Skurnik. After more than 25 years of importing wines from around the world, Michael, who also represents a who’s who portfolio of the finest California wineries, reached out to his roster of quality winemakers with a project to help him craft the finest quality Pinot Noir on the market for under $20 per bottle. Along with the deft hands of a consulting winemaker who seeks out individual lots of Pinot Noir from the finest growing areas of Northern California, a soft, silky, fruit-forward, drinkable, and high quality Pinot Noir called The Pinot Project was created. The wine has a full and silky mouth feel, with just the right amount of acidity to complement a variety of dishes. The wine is 100% stainless steel fermented and finishes dry with just a kiss of oak. Chill it for a half hour and throw some sausages on the grill. $9.98
Monte Velho 2012 – an excellent year for red wines in the Alentejano region of Portugal.

Fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks with temperature control, membrane pressing and ageing in stainless steel. Clear deep ruby color with berry fruit aromas along some complex subtle toasty notes,good depth of fruit and a fine tannic structure. Burger time! $9.99
