Want to show off B.C. wine? Go riesling and go Little Farm’s searingly dry, mineral-driven, zesty citrus head-turner.

Quinta da Murta, Brut Nature Bucelas DOC 2013, Portugal, $27

Quinta da Murta, Brut Nature Bucelas DOC 2013Portugal, $27
Bubble is top priority for me, and the Quinta da Murta is one of the most unique sparklers on our shelves. Briny, bracing, dry and tangy, it is a seamless match with oysters.

Produttori del Barbaresco DOCG 2013, Italy, $43

Nebbiolo is one of the greatest red grape varieties, and this barbaresco demonstrates its haunting, hunger-inducing and age-worthy character beautifully while being simply the best fine-wine deal out there.
