From California’s Central Coast, we love the Layer Cake Deep Roots Reserve Chardonnay for its notes of apple, pear, and a hint of vanilla. It’s crisp and bright and pairs easily with chicken, fish or it’s perfect all by itself. $14

Red wine fans, grab a bottle of Matua Valley Lands & Legends Pinot Noir from New Zealand. You’ll taste notes of cherry, strawberry, and just a bit of spice in this wine, which pairs great with grilled chicken slathered in bbq sauce. $20
This wine was made for rock stars! Literally. Juanchi Baleirón of Los Pericos, the famous Argentinian band, makes Marcelo Pelleriti Malbecaster. It’s aged for 14 months in French oak giving this dark fruit-forward wine hints of vanilla. Pair it with whole roast chicken, and meatier cuts like thighs. $18
The Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is medium-bodied with fresh citrus notes. You’ll taste lemon, lime and grapefruit as well as passion fruit and peach, making it a great match for chicken salads of all sorts. $17
