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!

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.
If you’re looking for more zest in your life, a bottle of Pinot Grigio can provide that. We included a classic Pinot Grigio in the La Pluma collection because we’re all about light and easy here, which is exactly what this grape from Italy is. It has that dry sense of humor that seems so effortless with a punchy acidity to keep you on your toes, all while offering notes of lemon, limes, green apples, and honeysuckle. Long story short; when it’s been a heavy day and your soul is seeking light things only, you’ll be happy to have this bottle on hand.
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.
Sangiovese can be found in both the Chianti and Montalcino regions of Tuscany (it all sounds so romantic, right?) and is known for producing classic medium-bodied wines. Rosé wine is actually made from red grapes, and this is where the Rosé of Sangiovese comes to play. Crisp, fruit-forward, and easy-to-drink, it's everything you want in your bottle of Rosé and more.
A little sweet. A little tart. A little salty? You truly get it all with this white Italian wine. If you're into that biting acidity, Verdicchio will probably be high on your list of most-loved wines from our Andiamo collection. Citrus fruits like mandarin, lemon, and grapefruit are at the forefront, but what really sets this Italian wine apart is its distinct notes of almond. While our Verdicchio can start out tasting a bit tart, the more you sip, the smoother it becomes. In fact, we suggest approaching it as an aperitif (Italian for an alcoholic drink sipped before a meal to stimulate the appetite) to experience its full effect.
We really try not to play favorites at In Good Taste, but there is just something about an Italian Barbera that hits different in the best way. Barberas are the perfect wine for pizza night; they're low in alcohol, and medium-bodied but taste super light, and their berry and plum flavors pair incredibly well with savory tomato sauce and cheese! Another fun thing about Barberas? They actually taste great when chilled, which is not something we're in the habit of suggesting for our red wines. Our Italian Barbera lies somewhere between the body of a cab and a pinot and is the ideal choice for a "ladies who lunch" kind of afternoon.
This is not your average Italian red. Nerello Cappuccio is a dark-skinned grape variety from Sicily, the Mount Etna region to be exact (yes, the volcano). Although its color is vibrant, you might be surprised to know that it’s a much softer red than it looks to be. Our Nerello Cappuccio is cherry-forward, with other tasting notes of vanilla, light coffee (like your favorite breakfast blend), and minerals. The delicate tannins in this Sicilian wine will surprise and delight you and tastes exceptionally good paired with margherita pizza or arancini balls (drool).
This was one of our first French wines to join the Passport collection and one sip will explain why. Some background on the Rhône Valley in France: While this region is known for its dark, juicy reds, a very small amount of special white wines are made in the Rhône Valley. Our Côtes du Rhône is packed with French-perfected, floral flavor and Old-World charm. Its natural tang paired with the weighty Marsanne grape and aromatic Roussanne grape results in a crisp, savory sip that’ll transport you to a sunbathing chair by the Rhône itself.

I bought this as a gift for my niece. Unfortunately there was an issue with UPS, however when I went in good taste an email they immediately responded and had a solution which they handled on my behalf. Awesome!
As always a great experience with great wines to transport me abroad when I am a mom stuck on my couch. Fun to do virtually with loved ones!
Most of the time I choose just white wines. Having ordered the Vine Voyage selection opened up the possiblity to try
reds without a huge commitment. However, loved them all and will order again. Thanks
Fantastic gift. This was gifted to me at first and now I gift this to everyone!! Quality wine, packaging, experience, and everything!
For the person who has everything - but still needs to celebrate - this adorable wine set shipped to their doorstep is the perfect gift!! I give this wine gift quite frequently and it never fails to bring about positive reactions! It's an easy-peasy gift-giving idea with great customer service!
We are an interior design firm and we gifted a client this gift box.
They love wine so they thought it was practical and very thoughtful.
And, they loved the aspect of choice.
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!
Unique. Extraordinary. Unexpected. This tasting flight is for those who are intrigued by the more uncommon side of life; those who appreciate a Pinot Noir but want a little something more; those who enjoy a crisp white but with the kind of edge you just can’t put your finger on. Eight less traditional, highly intriguing wines create this tasting flight—it’s up to you to find out what kind of “weird” you like most.
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!
