Perfect for wine lovers

Plum and blueberry flavors with a touch of dried herb dominate this soft, rich Merlot. Sustainably farmed vineyards and produced in a solar-powered, carbon neutral winery.
Innovac!ón Malbec-Tempranillo (Argentina) $9.99

Mrs. Beachley’s Mulled Wine $8.99
This warm red wine drink, rich with cinnamon, ginger, cloves and other spices, is a favorite around a winter fire. To fill a house with sugar and spice, recommend heating this mulled wine on the stovetop with a cinnamon stick or nutmeg or serving with brandy, cognac or even Morello cherries.

Sweeten the deal

Crunchy, rich and delicious, these truffles walnuts are one of the best chocolate bangs for your buck. Made in France with just a few simple ingredients, including premium roasted walnuts and rich chocolate, it’s best not to open them when you’re alone.

Imported from France, our rich, creamy chocolate and caramel truffles are a decadent mélange of simple organic ingredients. Take a box of these along to a party and get out of the way, fast, or get run over. I opened them while alone, which was a big mistake, because a few of them never made it to the table.
