($19) Made from the rare and finicky Pinela grape, this is the sort of crisp-but-fruity crowd-pleaser you buy in cases.
2008 KOGL "MEA CULPA" SAMLING

2008 SANTOMAS MALVASIA
($19) Loaded with tropical fruit and wintry spice, this silky, golden wine is rich, verging on buttery.
2006 BATIČ PINOT GRIS RISERVA
($31) The family's farm—an enviable spread even if it didn't produce this mineral-driven white—dates to the 17th century.
2007 MOVIA LUNAR
($39) This nutty, orange-hued, Ribolla-based wonder reaches way back in the winemaker's manual, using juice harvested from unpressed grapes.
