From Chile • Just $3.99 a Bottle!
Panilonco Chardonnay/Viognier is currently only available in our stores where wine is sold.*
Somewhere along the Chilean coast, seemingly hidden from the rest of the world, is a vast wine estate called Viñedos Errázuriz Ovalle. These breathtaking vineyards are "guarded" from the sea by two enormous stone lions – you'll find those lions "guarding" the label of Panilonco Chardonnay/Viognier, a product of these tremendous vineyards in Chile's Colchagua Valley. At just $3.99 a bottle, the thought crossed our minds this wine might just need its own guard.
Panilonco Chardonnay/Viognier is a complex white wine with peach, citrus and apricot flavors. Eighty percent Chardonnay and 20% Viognier, it's creamy and smooth in the mouth with a crisp finish. This is a great sipping wine that's also great with a cold pasta salad or a main course of grilled chicken and roasted veggies. At our everyday price of $4.99* a bottle, it fits right in with our definition of value – the intersection of price and quality – and delivers a satisfying experience glass after glass.
*Panilonco Chardonnay/Viognier is $3.99 in CA/AZ/OR/WA; $4.49 in NV; and $5.99 in OH. Alcohol availability & price may vary due to state laws, taxes, shipment fees & other such stuff. (If we could, we would.)
