Staff Pick Notes

One of our specialties here at Astor Wines are wines that over-deliver for a great price. Here is a perfect example, a crisp, bright Chenin Blanc from Loire valley. I have picked this wine to review before, but I thought another rave review was warranted.

You really can't go wrong.

These days, one of the most exciting stories is in South Africa, where newly...
