The Ortega is a must with a charcuterie board or even on its own! Delicious!

This wine is beautiful chilled in the summer on the deck or on a rainy night paired with fresh Alaskan crab legs! Never a good reason not to drink it!

Just got back home from tasting the new Ortega. Fruity yet dry. Left with 2 bottles. I have a feeling this one will sell out fast.

This wine is great with a charcuterie board but it's also enjoyable on its own. It has a dry but fruity taste that begs a second glass!

It was misleading because it says this wine is off-dry but this wine is definitely bone dry. It was like a rosé also which was also a bit different than what is described. Still enjoyable.
