Our Review of Pique-Nique Sauvignon Blanc (2020)
Type of Wine
A white wine made of Sauvignon Blanc grapes.
Taste + How and when to drink
“Fresh”, “clean” and “bright” were frequently used when describing this wine. Sip after sip almost gave some of us a lip puckering experience, as it was like biting into a crisp citrus. No wonder as lemon and lime are distinct flavors of this wine. The winemaker also describes this wine as having melon and herb flavors.
It makes sense that this crisp wine goes well with tangy cheeses, smoked meats, and seafood.
The Costco’s Hello Wine Sampler (2021) is $49.99, which is around $4.00 per 375ml bottle of wine.
One cannot buy this wine outside of the Costco wine sampler. So in order to try this wine, grab the Hello Summer Wine Sampler (2021) at your local Costco.

The Bottom Line
We rated the Pique-Nique Sauvignon Blanc (2020) from Costco’s Hello Summer Wine Sampler (2021) 3.0 Stars (out of 5)!
This white wine would pair well with seafood dishes as it has fresh, bright, lemon-y flavors; it is like a fresh squeeze of lemon that perfectly balances out the flavors of a briny flaky fish filet. Some of our taste testers thought this wine was a little too lip-puckeringly sour. For that reason, this wine was not as preferred as other Sauvignon Blanc wines.
