Gift Mini Bottle Tasting

A wine sheet is included and provides the following tasting notes.

Lime in Da Coconut – A Pinot Gris bursting with a perfect blend of tantalizing coconut and zesty lime. One sip and your taste buds will be swept away to a tropical paradise of flavor. (Bronze Medal – 2019 Palmetto Wine Competition)

Crab-Apple Zinger – This sweet Chardonnay zings the tongue with a deliciously flavored blend of tart green apples and juicy white cranberries.

Raspberry Giggles – With a mouth watering raspberry flavor, this White Zinfandel will leave you giggling with delight. (Gold Medal – 2019 Palmetto Wine Competition)

Peachy Keen – This Chardonnay is bursting with such delectable preachiness you will feel like you have just bitten into a juicy, ripe South Carolina peach! (Silver Medal – 2019 Palmetto Wine Competition)

Raspea Sangria – Flavors of juicy peach and tart raspberry envelop the senses with every taste of this sweet red wine!

Blackberry Banger – A sweet red wine that is surprisingly rich with a blackberry taste that will make your jaw bang the table with delight!

Our favorites in this tasting were the Cran-Apple Zinger and the Lime in Da Coconut.

An absolute great, unique gift idea so we wholeheartedly encourage you to pick up one for yourself…..and yes of course also to give as Birthday, Mother’s Day, or Christmas gifts. Honesty, just perfect for any gift idea!

Plum – Lazy Bear Winery

The taste is amazingly reminiscent of Christmas plum pudding, with hints of citrus and nutmeg. The finish one of lasting smooth decadence.
