Wineberry Baronne du Chatelard Bourgogne Blanc
Loads of pear and apple make this crisp Chardonnay three-liter ideal for low-key occasions when you want to drink all afternoon and not think too hard about it.
Les Vignerons d'Estezargues "From the Tank"
This earthy but approachable Côtes du Rhône—the equivalent of four bottles—comes from a natural-wine-making collective.
Yellow + Blue Torrontes
A liter of this zesty organic white from Argentina makes the hodgepodge of salumi and cheese you just pulled from the fridge seem like a well-planned spread.
