It's a Party!
We'd like to thank our many Penguin Pals for the fun pictures we have received from Penguin Parties over the holiday season.

Take the cue from the Little Penguin and his flock by throwing your own Penguin Party. Better yet, test your wine knowledge by throwing a blind tasting party (no blindfold necessary), and challenge your fellow penguins to guess which wine they are drinking. You may be surprised by who walks away with bragging rights & which wine will be your favorite. Click here for Party Tips.

This Month's Feature - the Little Penguin Merlot

Try the Little Penguin Merlot and you will enjoy scents of black cherry, spice and juicy strawberries while your mouth is treated to sweet fruit, closing with a smooth finish.

Rave Reviews
Always looking for the latest wine gossip, our roving reporter has been foraging for opinions about the Little Penguin Merlot. Here is what they've been saying:

"Fruit-Forward and flavorful. Excellent value and more vibrant fruit than other wines at similiar price. And the package is great! The Bird is the Word! These wines are great. Definitely an attention-getter in an increasingly-cluttered Australian Section."

A wine.com Customer - Florida
"I went to the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, as we do every year. I found this great Merlot. Little Penguin. This is my new favorite. Lite but full of flavor, the best new wine, I love it!"
