CWS Offers Monthly Line Up of International Wines

Since Caribbean Wines & Spirits (CWS) launched in December of 2020, the company has hit the ground running. In addition to offering Angostura Premium Rums, CWS launched its “Tour de Vino” wine subscription box, which included two international wines, as well as several gifts for the holiday season.

“This past December, we launched Caribbean Wines & Spirits and we wanted to offer something new and exciting to Bahamian wines lovers via our “Tour de Vino” wine subscription box.” noted Christopher Duncombe, Wine & Spirits Manager at CWS. “For the first month, our featured red wine was a Cabernet Sauvignon from Sequoia Grove Winery, Napa Valley, and our featured sparkling wine was a Signature Brut from the estate of Bouvet Ladubay, Loire Valley, France. We also gifted subscribers a bottle of Angostura Single Barrel Reserve and several other gifts for the holiday season.”

December’s box was delivered to subscribers who also got treated to a live digital wine tasting and will be able to enjoy exclusive CWS product discounts. Duncombe also notes that the company is excited to roll out its January’s box. 

“For January, the ‘Tour de Vino’ box will include the Tenuta de Nozzole Le Bruniche Chardonnay Toscana as well as the Villa Matilde, Greco di Tufo DOCG. We also wanted to gift our subscribers with a third wine this month, which will be the Caposaldo Chianti.” added Duncombe. 

The Tenuta de Nozzole Le Bruniche Chardonnay Toscana offers citrus aromas complemented by apples and peaches, with an outstanding acidity and long finish. It also pairs well with fish, shellfish and chicken. By contrast, the Villa Matilde, Greco di Tufo DOCG offers a rich bouquet of ripe fruits, from white peach to apricot, and sweet almond that compliments the wine’s mineral and citrus notes. On the palate, the wine’s vigorous taste is rich, complex and fresh at the same time. 

January’s gift, the Caposaldo Chianti offers smooth, perfumed red fruit aromas, with a berry and cherry palate for a long, elegant finish. It pairs perfectly with hard cheeses, pizza, pasta dishes or grilled meats.

The “Tour de Vino” wine subscription box is available for $67.00 a month, inclusive of VAT, and can be ordered via email at Each box includes two international wines, complimentary delivery, a monthly live digital wine tasting, and CWS product discounts.
