The grapes for this juicy, ripe and intensely aromatic Côtes de Gascogne were grown in a sunny, hot climate balanced by the cooling maritime influence of the nearby Atlantic Ocean, then nurtured to peak ripeness. The result is a spritely, highly acidic wine, with abundant flavors of lemon, lime and peach, meant to be sipped with abandon on its own, or enjoyed with light salads or seafood dishes.

Assyrtiko, the white wine grape of the Greek island Santorini, is grown by training the vines over several years to grow in the shape of a basket. The grape bunches grow on the inside, protected from the harsh sun and wind, and the leaves grow on the outside of the basket.
