    Posted by Poster about 5 hours ago

    2011 Clio Is Here!


    Winestore Price: $39.99 (net)

    40 six packs available

    70% Monastrell / 30% Cabernet Sauvignon

    So, we were planning on doing a special Rhone deal today and then 40 six packs of Clio showed up at our door. So obviously we have to send that information out!

    Many of you know this wine - it is easily one of the most popular wines we have ever sold, year in and year out. Our distributor for this wine, which is becoming a behemoth on the east coast, apparently got some more wine from Bodegas El Nido for being so powerful and paying their bills on time. I guess that is how it goes in the distributor game. Pay your bills - get more goodies.

    So just in time to enjoy with some friends and family this weekend, your Clio is here!

  2. Rhone Extravaganza Tasting!

    Posted by Poster 1 day ago

    Rhone Extravaganza!
    Saturday April 19th, 2014
    11am - 8pm
    ALL DAY LONG!

     


    Featuring:
    2011 Marcoux Vieilles Vignes
    2012 Marcoux Cotes du Rhone
    2012 Pesquie Terrasses
    2012 Lafage Bastide Miraflors
    2012 Moillard Les Violettes
    2011 Lafage Tessellae GSM
    2011 Perrin Cotes du Rhone Villages
    2010 Donelan Cuvee Christine
    2012 Belle Provencale
    2012 Lafage Cote Est
    2010 Clos D'Agon Blanco

    The Moillard Cotes du Rhone e-mail special we are running got us thinking. We haven't done a focused Rhone varietal tasting in a long time. I mean, we all love Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Marsanne Roussanne and every other grape variety that makes loving Rhone so right. We'll even be offering another insane deal in an e-mail tomorrow to start the weekend off right!

    So this weekend we're breaking out Rhone Rangers from all over the world - of course we have the Chateauneuf du Pape, we've got a California powerhouse, we've got the Perrin family from Beaucastel, we've got a white Chateauneuf ringer from Spain...we've got everything for those of you who, like us, are obsessed with all things Rhone.

    We'll also be covering all price ranges - from $9.99 to $159.99 - so if you're having family in this weekend you can allocate dollars accordingly based on how well they've been treating you :)

    We hope you can swing by and taste with us this weekend. We'll hopefully have the doors open (anyone else sick of switching between the AC and the Heat?) and the vino will be flowing!

    We'll see you this weekend!

  3. Your New Daily Drinker For $9.99...

    2012 Moillard "Les Violettes"

    Release Price: $14.99 (Click HERE to see)
    Winestore Price: $9.99
    SAVE 33%

    Save an additonal 10% in a mixed case!


    Can we speak for a minute about bottle shapes and sizes? Most wines come in a standard Burgundy or Bordeaux bottles (the skinny ones or the fat ones) and for good reason...wines in odd shaped bottles are a pain in the rear end. They cost more to ship, they cost more to label, they cost more to produce - they usually are nothing but trouble. That is why when I see a bottle of wine in some odd shaped glass, I know the person in charge is serious about their vino. It just takes a little more TLC.

    So when someone dropped this wine off, and told us the price, we were intrigued. 10 bones and in a weird looking bottle? How could this be? After the first taste it was go time - we ordered it last Friday and without even sending out a newsletter, all three stores sold out of their initial drop. We knew we were onto something.

    This wine, mostly Grenache with a chunk of Syrah and some Mourvedre, is a product of a well-known Burgundian negociant. It is soft and immediately drinkable; indeed, it drinks best at a certain velocity, if you catch our drift. There is nothing not to like. The bottle is awesome, the price is right and the juice is loose (sorry, but we had to...)

    So let's celebrate spring break like it's 1996 with some much better libations.

  4. 2013 Butter Chardonnay Has Arrived!

    2013 Butter Chardonnay

    Regular Price: $18.99
    Winestore Price: $14.99 (net)
    SAVE 21%


    It's back in action - and we're pretty sure you don't need us to tell you what kind of Chardonnay this is - the name says it all :)

    Folks, you have been asking about when this is going to be back in stock like 30 times a day for the last eight weeks. The truck has finally arrived and the wine is ready to roll!

    Last year, week after week we had customers ask if we could deliver them some Butter Chardonnay at a winestore style price. So naturally we hit the streets and secured oodles of Butter Chardonnay at the ever so friendly price of $14.99 (net) per bottle. It went bonkers, although the winery had a bit of a supply hiccup over the last 2 months.

    So short and sweet today folks - we're gonna have to say this wine pairs pretty well with the current weather situation!

  5. Chardonnay Taste Off with Rombauer, Kistler, Butter, Trefethen and more!

    Posted by Poster 8 days ago

    California Chardonnay Taste Off
    Featuring Kistler, Rombauer, Butter, Trefethen and more!

    Saturday April 12th, 2014
    11am-8pm


    http://www.winemonger.com/catalog/winemonger-talk/wp-content/chardonnay_sign.jpg

    Featuring:
    2012 Rombauer Chardonnay
    2012 Kistler Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay
    2012 Butter Chardonnay
    2012 Trefethen Harmony Chardonnay (New Vintage!)
    2012 Ventana Chardonnay
    2012 Binigrau Nounat
    2012 Novellum Chardonnay
    2012 Wente "Morning Fog" Chardonnay

     
    With the deal we are running on the Nounat, along with the return of Butter tomorrow (yes, you read that correctly), and the fact that it is going to be 80 degrees on Saturday, we decided it was time to break out the Chardonnay. Chardonnay is the most popular variety among U.S. wine drinkers. That, rather obvious, fact is all too often ignored by wine geeks who love to smirk about their latest “ABC” infatuation. “Anything but Chardonnay” may describe the interest level of many jaded wine aficionados, but it doesn’t speak to most wine drinkers. For most, Chardonnay is plenty tasty, and good values abound. Of all those Chardonnay lovers out there, it is the rich and buttery Chardonnay - the character that defines California - that gets people really excited.

    Sooo....we'll line all the wines up on the machine this Saturday and let the grading begin. Each taster will be able to rate the wines 1-8 (1 being their favorite) and we will release the results next week (with perhaps a deal on the winning Chardonnay)

    If you are like us and love a great Cali Chard, then be sure to stop in on Saturday!

    See you Saturday and Happy Tasting!
