Joel Gott Chardonnay 

This Chardonnay has aromas of honeydew melon, green apple, nectarine and mandarin with notes of honeysuckle. On the palate, the wine opens with bright fruit flavors, followed by crisp minerality and flavors of grapefruit on the mid-palate and a hint of spice on the long, clean, balanced finish.

SIMI Chardonnay 


Notes of baked pear, caramel, hazelnut, honey, and a touch of clove and honeysuckle. The palate is warm and weighty with pear, citrus, butterscotch, and baking spice.

Harken Chardonnay 

Harken Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented to create a rich Chardonnay with a classic profile of tropical fruit and Bosc pear alongside warm oak aromatics. Oaky, buttery, and bold.

A Cocktail and Song Pairing

Can you think of anything better than a good cocktail and song? Finding what cocktail pairs well with a song and vice versa is the fun of it all! Here’s a tequila cocktail and classic song from The Eagles that you will love: 

Tequila Sunrise 


  • 1.5 oz Teremana Tequila
  • 4 oz Fresh orange juice
  • 1 dash Grenadine
  • Garnish: orange slice and cherry


Add the tequila and then the orange juice to a cocktail glass. Top off with grenadine and garnish with an orange slice and a cherry.

A tequila sunrise and the song “Tequila Sunrise” by the Eagles are the perfect pair…not only is the name of the cocktail in the song, but it also is a song written by Glenn Frey and Don Henley and has a slower pace, which is perfect to listen to while enjoying the cocktail.
