For The Host With a Refined Palette – Montecillo Reserva
A special award-winning wine, the Montecillo Reserva won 90 points from both Wine Spectator and The Wine Advocate making it great for the host you really want to wow. Specially aged for 2 years in oak barrels, plus another 16 months in bottles this wine is perfectly aged and ready to go!

Trudeau Cuisine Wine Aerator
Instantly enhance flavor and turn any bottle of wine into an exquisite experience with the Elite Wine Aerator. You honestly need to try this tool before and after and there’s no way you won’t notice the difference!
Serve a superb glass within seconds. Arguably the best accessory for wine lovers, this innovative wine tool is specifically engineered to inject air into the wine through an air intake system that aerates as you pour. Providing the equivalent of 30 minutes of traditional decanting, adding delightful aroma with every pour. Laboratory tested for superior performance, the Elite Wine Aerator also features a smart spout which eliminates drips, so you can enjoy a seamless transition from decanting to serving – without losing a single drop! When you’re done, simply store the aerator away in its custom base and voilà!
