City Wine Market

Holiday Feature:
10% Off Wine That Pairs with Lamb

There's an adage...things that grow together go together. Lamb and grapes (particularly in Southern France) have long co-existed, both in the fields and on the dinner table—in fact, increasingly, vineyards around the world are using sheep to manage grass and weed growth instead of chemicals. Mention the Holiday Feature at City Wine Market and let them help you discover this perfect pairing.
Items designated NFD are excluded from this offer.
