“Wine enters through the mouth,
Love, the eyes.
I raise the glass to my mouth,
I look at you,
It’s September and as the summer fades into fall I am looking for wines to enjoy, to share and to savour. Here are three such wines from Pentâge Winery that I know you will love.
Please do not wait too long to order these newly released, deliciously juicy wines, many of the Pentâge red wines are already sold out. The wines are very affordable for the quality. You will want to have a few of each wine on hand for when the weather turns chilly and you just feel like curling up in front of the fireplace. Enjoy these wines paired with Netflix or a good book, and of course someone to share with!
