Criolla Grande (Pais)
We implore you to not let this wine sail by. While it may keep a low profile in the U.S., Pais is one of South America's oldest varietals, with a history dating back to the 16th century. Winemaker Matias Michelini strives to make experimental wines that express the terroir of this cooler climate region. An exotic bouquet of wisteria, tilled soil, and dates lead into flavors of raspberry, sage, and grapefruit rind on your tongue. Pair this pirate with empanadas, chicken taquitos, or chili dogs.
