These wines come from family-owned vineyards located in the world’s finest wine regions. This is the Santero Family vineyard on the site of an old abbey in the Piedmont region of Italy.
The Santeros’ Abbazia Vineyard is where our wine Abbazia Rosé Dolce is made.
This is a vintage photo of workers from the Abbazia winery.
The Piedmont area is known for its wonderful grapes and also for something else I love – truffles, which are also known as “tartufo bianco” in Italian.
Our wines are also produced in the Bordeaux wine region of France.
Other areas include Tuscany and coastal California. I wanted to provide a diverse selection of quality flavorful wines that pair excellently with food.
Our cremant wine is made with 100-percent Semillion grapes aged for two-years, so its bubbles are fine and its aromas are subtle.
These wines include: 2015 Les Chartrons Bordeaux Blanc from Bordeaux, France, 2016 Villa Ruby Rosé from Méditerranée IGP, France, Abazzia Moscato Rose from Italy, 2015 Poco a Poco Tempranilllo from Spain, 2015 Volupteux Malbec from Cahors, France, 2016 Les Muraires Coup de Rosé from Côtes du Provence, France, and Arbos Vino Bianco from Italy.
The Martha Stewart Wine Co. will help teach you all about wine, so you can share that knowledge with your friends and family. Do you know… the grapes used to make wine, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir, are known as “varietals”?
Here, I am using 2016 La Référence Cépage Sauvignon Blanc from Pays d’OC, France, to cook a fish recipe.
Our online shop also includes a monthly wine club option and special occasion gift memberships. Members also receive free shipping and other special benefits.
Great wine makes a perfect gift, so consider giving “A Year of Wine” to commemorate a wedding, anniversary, or special birthday! These are 2016 Racine Rosé from Côtes du Provence, France, 2016 Les Muraires Coup de Rosé from Côtes du Provence, France, and 2015 Bear Hug Winemaker Select Chardonnay from California.

When determining how much wine to buy for a party, the standard estimate of half a bottle per guest is a good place to start. For dinner parties with many courses, however, you may need to plan for more – but, it never hurts to have more bottles than you need.
Clear crystal wineglasses are best for tasting wines; cut or colored glasses prevent you from enjoying the wine’s color and clarity. Wineglasses should be round with a rim that curves in slightly – this shape allows you to swirl the wine to release the fragrance while capturing its aroma.
And, the perfect conditions for storing wine are a cool temperature, dampness, and darkness. Basements are ideal. The temperature should be between 55-degrees and 58-degrees Fahrenheit.
It is also good practice to fill wine glasses slightly less than half full. This gives the wine room enough to breathe, and makes swirling less apt to spill. When taking a sip, let a little bit of air into your mouth; this allows the flavors to fully develop on your palate.
The Martha Stewart Wine Co. is designed so you can enjoy the perfect wine at every occasion! This is 2015 Marquis de Bacalan Bordeaux Blanc from Bordeaux, France. Cin cin! Go to MarthaStewartWine.com for more information.
