Each wine has been selected with holiday entertaining in mind. Impress your guests, friends and family by serving or taking a bottle of these wonderful wines to any of your holiday events. Elevate the level of your cooking by using these premium olive oils and sea salt.

You will have the opportunity to place orders for all of the wines and be assured of prompt delivery by Arlindo Beca of FWP Trading.
