The Burgundy region of France is home to their best Pinot Noirs, but we took the grapes into our own hands to create something extra special with our Coteaux Bourguignons. It’s a blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay, which results in a French red that’s light in body but full in flavor. The ripest blueberries and freshest herbs can be easily detected in this French burgundy blend. May we suggest pairing it with some creamy brie and freshly baked bread? It’s a oui-ning combo.
You probably know that the Tour de France is held on Ventoux Mountain in France, but did you know that the same area is known for its high-altitude rosé? This is the kind of quintessential French rosé that you don’t need to spin your wheels over—it’s simply delicious, crisp, and perfect for warm weather. Despite its delicate, pale pink color, each sip is lush with flavor, from tropical passionfruit and zesty citrus to refreshing melon. This has the potential to be your new summer go-to, so we’d suggest stocking up.
When you picture medieval folk sitting around a feast with goblets of wine, chances are they were drinking Bordeaux. This wine has been made in France since forever and is arguably the most classic French wine out there. Bordeaux is known for its full body, smoky notes, and rich, oaky taste. If you love cabs, chances are you will adore Bordeaux. For our Passport wines, we had to include this classic French red for you to sip and enjoy to your heart’s content. Best savored over a rich meal like lamb ragu, ratatouille, or BBQ.
Say “¡Hola!” to Spain’s main grape: Tempranillo. This red grape put Rioja wine on the map and is un vino tinto classico. It’s best compared to a classic cab, but with a bit more unique magic that’s hard to put your finger on, which is why it’s a part of our Wild Child line. This medium- to full-bodied wine with its relatively higher tannins usually offers complex notes of cherry, fig, cedar, tobacco, and dill. This is the type of red wine you want to buy and pour for a Latin-infused meal; think carne asada, tacos al carbon, or just perfectly cooked steak fajita meat.
We couldn't not have a weird white in the mix, right?! The Vermentino grape is native along the coast of Italy on the island of Sardinia (yeah, like the fish). Because of its origin, this grape offers a salty, crisp flavor that's incredibly easy to drink and enjoy. We say it's "weird" only because it's not widely known by name, but chances are you've probably had it before if you've ever ordered white wine in an Italian restaurant. If you love peaches and lemons and get a kick out of anything that reminds you of the sea, our Vermentino is the perfect Italian white to experience on a sunny day outside.
Big, bold, and full of flavor—exactly what you’d expect an Italian wine to be! This classic Italian grape produces some of Italy’s most straightforward red wines and is often used as a blending grape. Not here, though. We let Montepulciano do the heavy lifting as a heavy red wine and shine on its own. If you enjoy the smell of leather bound books, nibbling on dried fruit, and complementary notes of bitter, dark chocolate and sweet plums, you will love this Italian wine. No need to pair it with any certain dish—Montepulciano tastes great with all the Italian classics.
We knew the only red in the La Pluma collection had to be exceptionally good and exceptionally light. That’s why including a Grenache was a no-brainer. If smooth, fruit-forward, light-bodied reds appeal to your tastebuds, this could be your new favorite. The grape itself is tricky; depending on the climate of where its grown, Grenache wines could be light, dense, or somewhere in the middle. La Pluma’s version has all the airiness and flavor notes we wanted in our Grenache, which is how we know you’ll love it. Get the most of this red by pairing it with roasted meats, spice-heavy vegetables, and Mexican-inspired dishes with lots of cumin.
For the Chardonnay lovers who are looking to dig a bit deeper in the world of bold whites, a Viognier (pronounced vee-own-yay) could be your next big adventure. Viogniers tend to have more range; while they can be creamy with hints of vanilla like their Chardonnay counterpart, they also offer lighter, fruitier flavors like tangerine, mango, and honeysuckle. It’s still a more full-bodied white wine, but unlike Chardonnay, it’s softer on acidity and more perfumed. Spend an afternoon with a glass of Viognier amongst the flowers and it’ll all make sense.

I purchased this flight for my sister in law's birthday because I had received a flight for my birthday some months before. I enjoyed it so much, I had to share with my sister and sister in law! In Good Taste wine flights never disappoint!. I preordered their Wine Advent Calendar for this year. In year's past I have purchased wine advent calendars at Costco and end up dumping some of the wines they were so bad. I know this won't happen with In Good Taste. I usually stick solely to reds and have loved their Bordeaux, Tempranillo and others, but I have to say, I have truly enjoyed their rose' and whites as well. Not only is In Good Taste an fun and enjoyable experience tasting their wines, the wines are very, very good!!!
Son enjoys smaller bottles and the varieties of gift from "in good taste".
Gifted it to my wife on our anniversary. She loved these!
The 101. The Hollywood sign. The sheer volume of kale smoothies. California is known for a lot of things, but perhaps its most popular product is its wine. Our California Wine Mixer tasting flight has all the greats and then some; Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay are the celebrities you’ll recognize right away, but you might spot some surprises in this flight, too. That’s California for you—you never know what you’ll get!
Picture this: a day trip to Italian vineyards, sampling all the finest wine followed by the same in the French countryside. Sounds like a dream, right? If an international flight isn’t on the horizon for you, this flight of Italian and French wines is the next best thing to actually being there. The collection features eight classic wines from both countries so you can make your way through this pourable postcard from the comfort of your couch!
For our Winemakers’ Selects series, our very own winemakers, Matt and Neely, have selected some of their favorite wines from around the world and created a delightful sampler that ranges from crisp whites to full-flavored reds. We don’t typically play favorites and neither do they, but there’s an exception to every rule, and this collection is just that. Sip on our winemakers’ top picks to experience what they consider highly-sippable and check back each quarter for new selections!
