It's Gonna Be Sunny - Time for a Rosé Sale!

03.03.2021

Rosé Sale!



Sale Runs Wednesday March 3rd - Sunday March 7th 2021 (at 7pm)*

Honestly, I checked the weather on my phone this morning and saw all this sunshine and said "We're putting rosé on sale this week..."

I'm ready for spring. I'm ready for a lot less rain. I'm ready for swimming pools. I'm ready for more rosé.

So grab yo' self a few bottles, enjoy it outdoors, and I'll see you poolside asap!


We continue to recommend using our website (HERE) and choosing in store / curbside pickup, and we will walk your order out and place it in your car.


2019 Larme en Rose
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 50%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

If you stick around the wine business long enough, you’ll have seen it all. Where once wine coolers were cooler than Liebfraumilch, now hard seltzer is hot (served cold). White Zin was once de rigeur, though it was never French; it was from the good ol’ US of A. But then that became too sweet and the category died. Or seemed to. Because then rosé rose up like a zombie eager for fresh meat, though the current iteration of the pink stuff is more often French than not. Provence is the epicenter of it and the French have figured out how we like it: dry, pale pink, light and refreshing.


2019 Puech-Haut Argali Rosé
Release Price: $19.98 (Click HERE to see)
SALE Price: $10.99 (net) per bottle
SAVE 45%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

This 2019 rosé from Puech-Haut (a blend of grenache and cinsault) is everything we love about dry rosé. The color, the floral and intense aromatics and the crisp flavors all scream porch pounder.



2019 Le Cabas Rosé
Release Price: $15.00
SALE Price: $7.99 (net)
SAVE 47%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Grenache is a remarkable grape with the ability to generate rich, dark and powerful wine when the crop yields are modest, but just as equally it can make vast quantities of pleasant wine, with less color but vibrantly fruity aromas. As a basis for rosé, it’s very nearly perfect, and it’s been the grape of choice for southern French rosés for a century or more. A touch of texture, some brief gratings of black peppercorns and lots of raspberries and strawberries.



2019 Sun Summer Pink
Release Price: $25.00
SALE Price: $12.99 (net)
SAVE 48%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Truth be told, Grenache makes a reasonably tasty rosé but it’s never complete without some Cinsault. Why? Cinsault is floral, with red cherries and plums as the through line between the two grapes. Syrah brings the strawberries and raspberries, but Cinsault gives to the blend a cranberry finish.


*our systems will be going down on Sunday March 7th at 7pm for maintenance and will not come back online until 8am on Monday March 8th.

For $7.99 this Sauvignon Blanc is outrageous...

This wine rocked our world when we first tasted it all the way back in January (which might as well have been 15 years ago), and we have had to wait until now for it to arrive...and man was it worth the wait.

Chilean Sauvignon Blanc is a really new thing; in fact, it’s new that it’s even becoming a thing. But it dates back to 1985 when the Casablanca Valley was “discovered”, at least for wine. Chardonnay was the initial push (hey, there’s money in them thar wines), and while the learning curve has been only gradually headed upward, those wines continue to improve. Sauvignon Blanc was considered too, but the early efforts were more like a watered-down New Zealand Sauvignon than anything identifiably Chilean. But that’s changing too. These wines are gaining some intensity and much like their New Zealand counterparts, these are floral and friendly.

The other awesome thing? The price is definitely right. I told you guys before that I need more $9.99 wine in my life...well, awesome $7.99 wine is even better :)

We hope you and your family are safe and healthy, and that you enjoy this beautiful Friday.

Is it 5 o'clock yet? :)

One of the co-owners of Bodegas Morca (which is the new sister winery to Bodegas El Nido, but that is for another day), approached us in the fall of 2019 about some extremely high end Verdejo that he was making.
 
It was aged in new Taransaud barrels (remember the T5?) for 8 months, and he said it was a dead ringer for high end California Chardonnay. Price was 35 euros ($42USD)
 
I mean sure, we decided to try it - and the wine really was unbelievable - and it hits all the finer points of high end Chardonnay, without the overbearing weight. Verdejo as a layered texture that is all its own, and this gem was leaving Rombauer, Sonoma Cutrer, Mer Soleil etc. in the dust. Only hiccup, and we explained this to them, was that nobody is buying $50 Verdejo in the US. Full stop. It’s just not happening. (If it is we sure don't know about it).
 
I guess they came prepared for that response, because they said that if we packed it in another label (not the one selling for 35 euro) and committed to a minimum of 400 cases, they could get it to us where we could retail it for $24.99...

We ordered 1,000 cases on the spot.
 
Their team came up with maybe one of the best labels I have seen in awhile (picture above) and the wine finally, after what seems like an eternity of waiting, rolled into our stores yesterday morning.

I have an internal bet that all 1,000 sell in the first 8 weeks. I think it’s that good. I just bought a case, and we sold 82 six packs yesterday before we even got this newsletter out.

For what it is worth, I usually don’t get too fired up about white wine for whatever reason (I really like high end sweet Riesling for instance, and that is a lonely island :), but this wine has me as excited as I have ever been. Spain once again proving that they can bring the thunder on the quality / value scale.

You're not drinking enough Aglianico...it's true.

2017 Verbo Aglianico Del Vulture



Release Price: $18.99 (Click HERE to see)

We get excited when we find a new wine that meets the following criteria:

- we can offer it at or tied for the lowest online price in the United States
- the wine is delicious and appeals to a variety of different palates

What gets us extra excited is when the wine not only meets these criteria, but is also a grape varietal that may not be as mainstream as Cabernet Sauvignon or Pinot Noir.

Aglianico, one of the gems of Southern Italy, is one such varietal.

Aglianico is one of Italy’s most important unsung grapes, but it’s tricky. It can be tannic and even a bit rustic, so the critical factor is where it’s grown. The Del Vulture owns its own D.O.C. and it’s a wine with more than 2000 years of history. As crucial as the volcanic soils and the elevation are to the power of the wine, in this region the wine gains the beneficial exposure of the gentle Venosa hills. Put together, the tannins are softened by the generous fruit and the wine remains bright and fresh.

It's one of my favorite under $15 red wine finds in the last several months, so we hope you love it as much as we do!

Happy Tuesday!

I'm convinced at this point that you all like a great deal as much as I do. This is one of the best ones we've run in awhile, and we're getting down to the end of the road on this one.

And given this wine is not going to be made again, when I say end of the road I mean end of the road :)

What's the deal?

The wine business can be a weird place, and the story behind this wine is a prime example.

So there was a wine made by a Guenoc Winery and Langtry Winery partnership called "Lillie's Collection Victorian Claret" for a California wine powerhouse called BevMo.

Guenoc and Langtry decide to split up. Langtry owns the trademark to "Lillie's Collection". Guenoc owns the trademark to "Victorian Claret".

Potential problem? Indeed.

Langtry continues producing the wine for BevMo but has to put "Red Wine" on the label instead of "Victorian Claret". BevMo says that doesn't work - now they don't want the wine anymore.

...and that brings us to how we are able to offer this gem at an absolutely silly price.

Langtry called us, and we were able to take the entire production off the hands of Langtry. Problem solved!

Langtry Farms was originally founded back in the 19th Century by entertainer Lillie Langtry, who purchased 4,200 acres in Northern California around 1888. Today, Langtry Estate makes up over 21,000 acres and is one of the largest continuous land holdings in all of California.

Their Petite Sirah, which makes up the base of this blend, is one of the best Petite values in the North Coast. Both powerful and well balanced, it's a prime example of what stunning values can come out of the North Coast when left at the hands of a master like winemaker Eric Stine.

So BevMo's loss is your gain - at least until we run out, as this is a one shot deal!

Happy Tuesday, and as always THANK YOU for your business!

It's a tale as old as time. Supplier calls us up and is like "Are you guys looking for an amazing deal? We have some wine we need to move."

We are like, "ummmm, yeah"...and then we're off to the races.

It seems almost criminal that a wine that travels all the way from Spain can cost only $7.99 while still tasting this good. I mean heck, some people are spending this on cups of coffee, right? I actually don't drink coffee but I have heard stories from Starbucks :)

What makes this Eric Solomon Selection so special?

When third generation vintner José Maria Vicente took over Casa Castillo it was mostly a rosemary plantation. Now it’s arguably the best winery in Spain’s burgeoning Jumilla region, where many heralded wines are coaxed out of old Garnacha and Monastrell vines. Casa Castillo is their entry level staple, with Monastrell planted on crazy-pure gravel soils and the wine treated as if it were Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

So today through Sunday this 100% Monastrell from the crowd favorite region of Jumilla (Bodegas El Nido Clio anyone?) is only $7.99.

You all know what to do!

Let's get to it!

What's up with the photo, right?

So back in December when this wine arrived in the US for the first time, we told you we thought it was going to be one of our best selling wines of 2021.

I told you that my wife did not even believe this was $12.99 when I told her how much it cost, and that we thought this was a dead ringer for high end Burgundy.

One thing I did not expect though was when I was flipping through my favorite wine magazine, Decanter, a few nights ago it would be featured in their "Top Wines of the Year".

I'm not really big into lists and such, but they put Le Paria in some pretty good company.

As you can see in the photo above, they put Le Paria right in the mix between wines that cost $132, $69, and $89 (and that's just on their page. It was their best red value selection in their top 30 reds.

It is also the least expensive wine on their entire list! (their full review below)

We said in December "we pride ourselves on trying to find extreme values here at winestore., but this one is potentially in a league all its own"...and maybe it was just kinda nice to see that others seem to agree :)

Le Paria hails from the Cabardés region inside Languedoc, and a little town called Ventenac, in the rolling foothills of the Pyrenees. For France, this is warm climate viticulture though it is not so different from the southern Rhone Valley climatically speaking. In general, the Languedoc doesn't cool off in the same manner as the Rhone but Grenache is happily at home in such a sunny place. And the family is invested not only in their historical sites and vines on the side of Montagne Noire but also in sustainable viticulture (they’re members of Terra Vitis - link HERE). The vineyard is free of chemical inputs and the wine has no added sulfites; it’s aged only in traditional concrete tanks.

TGIF people! I know what I'm drinking tonight!

I guess word has gotten out that now ALL French wine (except Champagne - those guys must have some really good lobbyists) that comes into the US is being hit with a 25% tariff, and they only gave us 12 days notice.

In the wake of this news, basically a bajillion of you have e-mailed asking when Larme will be going on sale again so you can load up. I get it. It's our best selling rosé...the wine is delicious...and at the sale price of $9.99 it is just a silly value.

Well, we are in the business of pretty much doing whatever you guys want, so here we go!

$9.99 per bottle. 5 days only. You can grab yourself a small stockpile to make it until the trade war is over :)

Why is the wine so special?

Well, if you stick around the wine business long enough, you’ll have seen it all. Where once wine coolers were cooler than Liebfraumilch, now hard seltzer is hot (served cold). White Zin was once de rigeur, though it was never French; it was from the good ol’ US of A. But then that became too sweet and the category died. Or seemed to. Because then rosé rose up like a zombie eager for fresh meat, though the current iteration of the pink stuff is more often French than not. Provence is the epicenter of it and the French have figured out how we like it: dry, pale pink, light and refreshing.

Larme has all this and more in spades.

So lets get to it! Happy Wednesday!

I love $9.99 wine that delivers like this!

2018 Boulée-Cordot


Release Price: $15.00

SAVE 33%




Lowest Price in the US!

We continue to recommend using our website (HERE) and choosing in store / curbside pickup, and we will walk your order out and place it in your car.

When you pair wine tariffs with an EU facing relatively severe lockdowns, you can imagine that the supply chain gets slightly disrupted. Hence the reason you may have seen wines go in and out of stock this fall.

That said, when wines like Boulée-Cordot come back in stock, we get a little more excited than we do about some others. This wine, for $9.99, delivers the goods.

When we stumbled upon this wine, we got a little more than excited. We're always looking for great value wines, but finding wine that tastes great for less than $9.99 is kinda like finding an old school restaurant that still serves amazing cheeseburgers for $3.00 and $5.00 with a milkshake and fries - they are out there, but you got to do some digging.

As France evolves into the modern world, there are times when it seems that they’ve merely arrived in the late 20th century. Blends like this one wouldn't have been seen only a few scant years ago. Instead, the
wine would have been named after the place where it originated; perhaps the grapes would have been listed on the back label if they were noted at all. But somebody in France got the memo – the modern world wants more information, and the old place names, unless they’re the famous ones, don't mean much.

So basically even if we had seen this blend, we wouldn't have known we were drinking it, even if we were :) Syrah is planted throughout Mediterranean France, and has a strong reputation dating back to the
mid-19th century when Bordeaux chateaux would blend a small amount into their wines to improve them. Alicante? It’s one of the rare Teinturier grapes, having red juice as well as red skins and in the right spots it can be powerful and juicy, not just inky. Together they make for a very modern, fascinating, if nontraditional, wine.


So let's celebrate value, and all the good things that come with it. Maybe pair this blend with a burger and fries from your local place (Zacks is a favorite of mine, or Wheeler's from where I grew up)

Happy Tuesday y'all!

Since its launch in August, Highland Falls was our #1 selling wine. Unfortunately and unexpectedly it ran out of stock right before Christmas, leaving many of us (including myself) waiting patiently for it to return.

So here is some good news for 2021 - I am happy to report that the wine is finally back in stock and ready to rock!

What makes it so special?

"Mountain-grown, it’s the richest kind,” as coffee commercials used to say, but it’s also true of Cabernet. You rarely, if ever, can find mountain fruit in $12 wines. Like, I can't even think of one off the top of my head.

Foley Family's winemaking pedigree being involved doesn’t hurt either: the guys who bring you Merus, Chalone and Chalk Hill Wines are behind the powerhouse Highland Falls lineup too.

It's kinda like if the people behind Dom Perignon launched a $12 sparkler - or the winemaking team behind Rombauer rolled out a $12 Cali Chardonnay.....these are the best of the best in the Cabernet world, bringing you world class value.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I feel like everyone is kinda stressed out lately, no? I know when I'm stressed, I need to follow a very simple regimen:

1) get more exercise (actually I just eat more ice cream)
2) get plenty of sleep (yeah right, I am just gonna read the internet until like 2am)
3) Find more wine that is $9.99 that I love

We can't help you get more exercise, or get you any ice cream for that matter. But what we can do is offer you this insane deal for only $9.99.

What's up with the wine?

Let’s just state from the outset that simply because Cambria is a big and successful winery, owned by a bigger and successful winery (Jackson Family) doesn't mean that their wines aren’t interesting. How do I know that? Because Chateau Latour is a big and successful winery (more than 30,000 cases per year, by some accounts) and nobody seems to complain about that. And they too are owned by a bigger and successful company, Groupe Artemis, who also own restaurants, publishing houses, clothing companies and Christie’s, for starters.

So, can we dispense with the attitude that merely because Cambria sells a lot of Pinot Noir, it must not be very good. Think about that for a second. If they sell a lot of wine, they MUST be good, right? They have this new clonal project and it includes Clone 4 (most people call it Pommard) which they planted back in 1970. If I was making Pinot Noir and I had to pick a single clone to rely upon, it would be Pommard. It produces Pinot Noir that is deep, delicious and keeps you coming back for more.

At $9.99, which is the lowest price in the US by a country mile, this is a back up the truck type of situation. If you love Pinot Noir, do not miss!

Soooooooooo...we were trying to send some positive vibes out into the universe with some fun year end sales, and then we held our annual New Years Day sale and we thought things were going to start off on the right foot.

Fast forward to today, and it kinda feels like 2021 already has gone a bit off the rails - so we're just going to go ahead and do a hard reset real quick. Let's just start over.

So we are going to put our #5 selling wine of 2020 on sale through Sunday, and put it at the lowest price we have ever offered by $3 per bottle! The "positive vibes only" train is ready to leave the station
once again, and we want you to get on board :)

So yes, today you have:
- Lowest price ever offered on Waccamaw Proprietary Red
- The wine for $9.99 is a silly good value
- It is a rich, full bodied Cabernet blend

As always, thank you for your support! It is an honor and pleasure to continue to serve you, and we're looking forward to a great 2021!

Thank you and $1,000 Restaurant Gift Card Giveaway!

01.01.2021

Thank you!



December 31st, 2020

It has become a tradition here that we take a moment at the end of each year just to say THANK YOU...and in a year like 2020 we cannot thank you enough.

As we approach our 15th Birthday (is that even possible?!?), we want to just reiterate how truly appreciative we are of you spending your hard earned dollars with us over the last 12 months and we hope to continue to earn your business as we enter 2021. We are humbled by the opportunity to serve each and every one of you, and we don't take it for granted.

Back on Christmas Eve we held a drawing where the winner received a $1,000 gift card to their favorite local North Carolina restaurant. Some of our professional colleagues in the food and beverage industry, specifically those running and working in your favorite local restaurants, have been devastated by the pandemic. That was a small way we thought we could help out, and it was so well received that we are going to do it again.

We are always striving to get better, and we need your help. So if you can respond to this e-mail, or e-mail us HERE, and let us know the one or two things you think we really need to add to our service offerings, to change, to overhaul - anything at all (heck, even if you just have some positive feedback), we will enter your name in a drawing to take place next Monday January 4th to win a $1,000 gift card to your favorite local North Carolina restaurant.

Let’s start 2021 off right!

We hope to see you today (we are open 10am until 6pm!) as you stock up for your New Year's Eve! If you're like us, you need some wine before heading to bed at 9pm :)

Also, for what it's worth, if you've been saving a nice bottle for a special occasion - we encourage you to open it up tonight. Life is short, and our time here is limited. No better time than now to celebrate all we have to be thankful for!

Thank you again, and Happy New Year!

Cheers!

The team @ winestore.

Some Positive Year End Vibes With Lowest Price Ever Offered!

12.29.2020

Vellas COQ Cabernet Sauvignon

Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 50%




Lowest Price in the US!

Sale runs Tuesday December 29th, - Thursday December 31st, 2020


We continue to recommend using our website (HERE) and choosing in store / curbside pickup, and we will walk your order out and place it in your car.

We decided we are ending 2020 with some positive vibes (lord knows we need positive vibes out in the universe right now). In retail that means taking a product that we love, in one of the heaviest and most awesome glass bottles that we have seen, and offer it at the lowest price we have ever offered.

I gotta tell you, at $9.99, this stuff is straight up bananas...and we can all use some more awesome $9.99 Cabernet in our lives, right?

Added bonus? What if the Cabernet could be made by one of the hottest winemakers in France right now?

That's what we have going on here today.

Over four generations of winemaking, the Vellas family has slowly assembled a strong group of properties in Languedoc and Roussillon (Mediterranean France). In beautiful sites like Mas du Pont (near Montpellier) they have created not only a vast set of vineyards but also farmlands, bull breeding, equestrian centers, olive groves and more. They pull their Cabernet from areas such as Costiere de Nimes, Coteaux Varois, Oc, Saint-Guilhem, Grès, Saint Drézery, Muscat de Lunel, Languedoc, Pic St. Loup and Faugères. With Cabernet spread out across these sunny and Mediterranean climes, ripeness and aromatics are both in strong supply.

Let's get to it!

You didn't think we would stop bringing the best Holiday deals with just 3 shopping days left in the Holiday Season, did you?

So what do you do when your Charlie Wagner’s grandson (he made Caymus) and Chuck Wagner’s youngest son (he kinda helped too), and after you helped create Belle Glos and then Meiomi, you find yourself with a pot of money?

I guess if you’re Joe Wagner, you start another winery. As a fifth generation Napa Valley winemaker, Joe had learned his way around a vineyard and winery long before he was able to drink wine. By the time he was 19, he was in it up to his elbows. In 2014, he took the big step of forming Copper Cane Wines & Provisions. Joe lives in Napa Valley with his six children (I can’t even imagine the chaos), and this is their Zinfandel project. Burly, powerful and correct Zin.

Caymus bloodline. Creater of Belle Glos and Meiomi. Big Zinfandel for cold weather. Need we go on? :)

Let's do this!

Anytime we can find ANY wine for less than $9.99 that is stunning, we get excited.

Anytime we can find 100% Cabernet for less than $9.99 that is stunning, we do the happy dance.

And stunning 100% Cabernet for $9.99 is exactly what we have for you today.

What's up with the wine?

The Mas family’s Cabernet is just as New World-ish as anything from California, but winemaker Jean-Claude Mas is one of those personalities in the Languedoc for whom winemaking is part of his heritage, after generations have built this large enterprise. For Mas, it’s still just as much a winery as a business, and it’s genuinely a passion, one that he came to after he jumped into his own businesses away from the family. Wine from around the world became a hobby and then he started an organic wine company in England – if you know any of the folks who’ve done that sort of thing, you know they’ve drunk the Kool-aid. He moved to Miami and started importing French foods and wines. Then he worked for years in Bordeaux and in 1995 was lured back home to Pézenas, which you should visit someday because it’s the charming birthplace of France’s greatest playwright, Moliere. The vines at this fourth generation estate start at around 1000 feet in elevation within an eighteen-mile long triangle, sheltered on the north by the Black Mountain, and sloping down to the Mediterranean, with the river Hérault as the eastern boundary.

While the wine may taste as big, ripe and delicious as something from California, you won't find anything from the Golden State that packs this much punch at below $10 per bottle.

So let's get to it people! Happy Tuesday!

One shot deal!

We continue to recommend using our website (HERE) and choosing in store / curbside pickup, and we will walk your order out and place it in your car.


- HOLIDAY HOURS BELOW -

The wine business can be a weird place. Case in point, the deal we have for you today.

So there was a wine made by a Guenoc and Langtry partnership called "Lillie's Collection Victorian Claret" for a California wine powerhouse called BevMo.

Guenoc and Langtry split up. Langtry owns the brand "Lillie's Collection". Guenoc owns the name "Victorian Claret". Potential problem?

Langtry continues producing the wine for BevMo but has to put "Red Wine" on the label instead of "Victorian Claret". BevMo says that doesn't work - now they don't want the wine anymore. Now we have a problem.

...and that brings us to your deal today.

We were able to take the entire production off the hands of Langtry, at an absolutely astonishing deal price and you can grab this beauty today for $9.99 per bottle.

Langtry Farms was originally founded back in the 19th Century by entertainer Lillie Langtry, who purchased 4,200 acres in Northern California around 1888. Today, Langtry Estate makes up over 21,000 acres and is one of the largest continuous land holdings in all of California.

Their Petite Sirah, which makes up the base of this blend, is one of the best Petite values in the North Coast. Both powerful and well balanced, it's a prime example of what stunning values can come out of the North Coast when left at the hands of a master like winemaker Eric Stine.

So BevMo's loss is your gain - at least until we run out, as this is a one shot deal!

Happy Wednesday, and as always THANK YOU for your business!

This will be one of our best selling wines in 2021. Mark my words. It is that good.

We pride ourselves on trying to find extreme values here at winestore., but this one is potentially in a league all its own.

If you love Pinot Noir, I am here to tell you this is a dead ringer for high end Burgundy, and is utterly delicious for only $12.99.

My wife is very into Pinot Noir right now, so I tested my theory out last night. I poured a glass for her, went up to say a final goodnight to the kids and came back downstairs.

Wife: "That is exactly what I'd like you to bring home. How much is it?"
Me: "$12.99"
Wife: "No, seriously"
Me: "It's crazy, I know. But it's $12.99"
Wife: ***silence as her entire world shifts off its axis***

Funny thing here? This isn't Pinot Noir at all. It's Grenache... (this is where I would insert a funny emoji but I can't figure out how to do it)

Le Paria hails from the Cabardés region inside Languedoc, and a little town called Ventenac, in the rolling foothills of the Pyrenees. For France, this is warm climate viticulture though it is not so different from the southern Rhone Valley climatically speaking. In general, the Languedoc doesn't cool off in the same manner as the Rhone but Grenache is happily at home in such a sunny place. And the family is invested not only in their historical sites and vines on the side of Montagne Noire but also in sustainable viticulture (they’re members of Terra Vitis - link HERE). The vineyard is free of chemical inputs and the wine has no added sulfites; it’s aged only in traditional concrete tanks.

Grab a bottle to enjoy this evening! You've earned it!

HOLIDAY HOURS BELOW -


Every year we try and pick a "Wine of the Year" and a "Runner Up" based on which wines had not only the largest impact on our business, but also seemed to have the biggest impact with customers.

If there were ever two wines that absolutely rocked our world in 2020, these are the two (and it's not like anyone really needed any rocking in 2020).

"Mountain-grown, it’s the richest kind,” as coffee commercials used to say, but it’s also true of Cabernet. Highland Falls mountain grown goodness catapulted it to our #1 selling wine since its release in July of this year...and it's not exactly close for 2nd place. It has a commanding 3,528 bottle lead through yesterday.

Foley Family's pedigree doesn’t hurt either: the guys who bring you Merus, Kuleto, Chalone and Chalk Hill Wines are behind the powerhouse Highland Falls lineup too. 

At $9.99 per bottle on sale, I sometimes think I may take for granted that quality of this level, at this price point, even exists....and that statement rings true for our runner up at $10.99 as well.

I've always loved Albariño, and Clos Delfines has become a benchmark for the brand - but never in a million years did I think it would take off as it has in 2020. This is also the first time ever a white wine has made it into the Top 2!

Sales of this 
crisp white with hints of green apple, pear and peach rocketed a stunning 3,920% this year (and no we did not sell just 1 bottle last year :)

I think though that our biggest takeaway from the success of these two wines is that there are still some stunning wines being made at the $10-$12 price point...and it's happening all over the globe. We've just got to keep hunting them down and bringing them your way.


Clearly you all love these two as much as we do - so the sale on these gems extends through Sunday!

Lastly, THANK YOU for your business. We would not be here without your support. We DO NOT take it for granted. We work hard to try and earn your trust, and hopefully provide you with some awesome wine you can share with friends and family.

We are honored and humbled by your support, and we hope to continue to offer you one the best wine shopping experiences in the United States.

So enjoy Highland Falls (I am in for at least a case!), enjoy Clos Delfines, and enjoy 2020 coming to an end and getting in the rear view mirror.

Cheers,
Your winestore. team
