To get you started, here are a few recommendations - one from each table . . .
 

 

Lumen Grenache Noir (Table 1a). 100% Greanche Noir from Santa Barbara, California. "This bottling is loaded on the nose with dried hibiscus, pomegranate, rose petals, leather and slate aromas." - 91 pts. Wine Enthusiast

Botanica Chenin Blanc (Table 1b) - "Ginny Povall, originally from New England, cultivates 53 acres of land of which 24 acres are the protea flowers (South Africa's national flower, pictured on the label) and 12 acres of vineyards. Back in the late 1940s, it was the first farm in South Africa to cultivate proteas. Ginny is now making some exquisite wines from Chenin Blanc and Pinot Noir." The grapes for this wine come from a vineyard high in the mountains. Made from vines exceeding 50 years in age, the wine has lime, citrus notes with firm acidity. It is aged in French oak barrels.

Berthenet Montagny Tete du Cuvee (Table 2a) - La Tête de Cuvée is a Burgundy Montagny wine from the first white press juice of Domaine Jean-Pierre Berthenet . On the palate, this white wine from the Domaine Berthenet of the 2015 vintage is very fruity, delicious, and slightly acidulated with a salty note characteristic of the appellation Montagny - stunning!

Campagnola Amarone (Table 2b) - Corvina Verones, Corvinone Veronese 65%, and Rondinella 35%. The wine is a deep bright, ruby red color with a violet edge. It features a powerful bouquet and intense aromas of cherry, ripe plum, toasted almond and vanilla. This full-bodied wine with round and rich flavor received 95 ptsfrom James Suckling.

Laherte Rose Champage (Table 3a) - Made from 30 year old vines, 100% Pinot Meunier, this luscious sparkler is made from grapes biodynamically farmed (organic), then fermented in oak barrels, with the second fermentation in bottle (champagne method) and is then aged at least 2 years on the lees - unique, velvety and ethereal!

Dufouleur Cotes du Nuits Blanc (Table 3b) - Cool fermented with limited oak to emphasise the clean, fresh mineral flavours, this gorgeous white burgundy from the classic 2014 vintage is drinking beautifully and is an incredible bargain - don't miss it!

Barrone Casselero Merlot (Table 4a) - 100% Merlot from Tuscany, Casalferro was first produced in 1993. A pure Merlot produced only during the best years, Casalferro is obtained from the vineyard of the same name located at 400 meters above sea level and facing south. This is well-known as a great Chianti Merlot. It comes in a gorgeous wooden box, carved with the golden bird displayed proudly on the bottle - a spectacular gift wine!

La Nerhte Chateauneuf-du-Pape blanc - Produced by one of Châteauneuf-du-Pape's oldest and most storied estates , certified AB Organic, from white Rhone varietals (predominantly Roussane) picked from vines more than 40 years old, Estate grown, hand harvested, and estate bottled. 92 pts. - Josh Reynolds

Drew Mid-Elevation Pinot Noir (Table 5) - Located on Mendocino's far coast, 3.3 miles from the ocean, Drew produces small lot cool climate wines from the Mendocino Ridge and the Anderson Valley AVAs. Traditional methods and sustainable farming practices are employed to craft wines with elegance and transparency. Jason Drew produces this wine using fruit from elevations between 1,200 and 1,400 feet. This wine captures the salt air and conifer scents of the wind on the ridges along the Mendocino coast. 92 pts. Wine and Spirits
