I could not be more into Picpoul right now (read more about that grape here). It dominates the white wine selections in my home at the moment.

Here’s what you should know about Picpoul: it’s never bad, sometimes good...and then every now and again you stumble across one like this, that is really something special.

Let’s think about this for a second: lots of grapes (I’m looking at you, Pinot Noir) are sometimes good, rarely great and often dull. So there’s a lot to be said for grapes that never stink. Just saying, though I haven’t usually cared about Picpoul. But I want to be clear about my POV; about the time I decided I was no longer going to think about the Picpoul grape and didn’t think it could age, I tasted a Picpoul de Pinet that was six years old and it was utterly delicious. That’s the thing about wine: if you’re paying attention, you’re constantly learning how little you know.

So, this is a long-winded, sideways recommendation for this wine 😂

If crisp, dry and delicious white wine is your thing, and it definitely is mine, this deserves a place in your rotation.

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

I'm gonna cut to the chase here...

I think Bleu Blanc Thau at the sale price of $7.99 may be the best white value and one of the best overall value wines in the store...and in a world where bacon costs $12.99 at the grocery store value is what I am looking for!

Many of you know it as the blue top wine, the wine with fish on the label, BBT, or many other names we've heard it called - but one thing is for certain...people are calling for it every day!

What's up with the wine?

We found the Vivarés brothers from Cotes de Thau – you’ve probably not heard of it but it’s the hilly coastal part of Languedoc in Mediterranean France. They live in Pézenas, which you should visit someday because it’s the charming birthplace of France’s greatest playwright, Molière. Robert Vivarés has a B&B with a fine restaurant and Paul travels the world for his business tasting a lot of wines. They needed a house wine that reflected the place where they grew up. So they blended Picpoul and Terret Blanc from the hills around them and called it Bleu Blanc and its straight up silly value.

Happy Wednesday!

When does the weekend start?

This wine arrived middle of last year and quickly entered our Top 25 best sellers.

What really blew us away about this stat is that we realized we have not one time sent a newsletter out about this wine. It just took off on its own - as many of the most delicious wines do...

Domaine Julien de l'Embisque, which has been organically farmed for many years, owns a diversity of terroirs throughout the southern Rhône Valley. They grow most of the diverse grape varieties of the valley too: Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Marselan and a little known grape called Couston for the reds, and Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Muscat á Petit Grain and Muscat d'Alexandre for the whites.

The entire estate is surrounded by forest and interspersed with hedges. All this creates an ecosystem that allows them to farm without any use of insecticides. This 100% Viognier showcases everything their estate is about - and you have the added bonus of being the only people in the United States with access to this wine!

I've said it many times over the last several months, but never before have we had such an insane amount of depth and breadth in our sub $15 wine offerings. This wine is a prime example of what we're talking about. Just in case you don't believe us, we'll have it on the tasting machine now through Sunday for only $0.25 per taste...because we wouldn't want you to miss out on all the fun. 😁

Not sure about you, but I know what I'm drinking tonight! Let's do this!

I feel like Masters week is the official start to rosé season.

I mean, yes, rosé is a year round beverage - but this week kicks off the end of Spring Break and the push towards summer, warm weather is (hopefully) here to stay, and people just seem to be celebrating the end of winter.

So every Friday in April we're putting our brand new rosé arrivals ON SALE to celebrate all things the pink drink.

First up?

In my opinion maybe THE "if you know, you know" rosé is La Culottée. (made by the same people that make Prejuges and Le Batard that we told you about yesterday!).

This 100% Caladoc wine (what is Caladoc? It's a hybrid grape that is a cross between Grenache and Malbec) is barrel-fermented, though it is still recognizably rosé in style.

Needless to say, barrel-fermented rosé is anomalous anywhere, much less in southern France. The barrels are over-sized, and the wine has no added sulfur or added yeast. Dry, clean and perfect when served chilled on a sunny day, just like you would the rest of the rosés you’re slamming this summer.

Things I love about this wine include:
- The grape is unqiue and cool
- Organic and no added sulfites for those of you into such things
- The color is insanely gorgeous, and the picture does not do it justice
- The wine itself is delicious
- Lowest price in the US

Only 2,000 bottles were made!

We're telling you, but don't let too many people in on this...let's keep it between us...if you know, you know 😁

The biggest sale we run every spring is Benières for $9.99, and the day has finally arrived.

Benières Pinot Noir, which you all have gobbled up to the tune of more than 200,000 bottles (that is a lot of wine) in the last 36 months, has been out of stock for almost 3 months 👀



We told you back in December that for the 4th year in a row Benières Pinot Noir and Chardonnay didn't win the voting here for our Wine of the Year, but maybe they should have. That we were not sure there is any brand we carry more on fire than Benieres - and that there is no brand bringing more thunder when it comes to the quality / price ratio than these wines right now.

The guy who wrote the review above about the Benières Pinot Noir clearly agrees 😂 My guess is he is buying a case at this price.

As always, thank you for your support. We work hard every single day to bring you the best possible customer service, the greatest quality wines, and the guaranteed lowest prices...and it is because of you that we are able to make that happen.

You guys know the drill!

Let's do this! Happy Wednesday!

Burgundy is a tricky place to buy wine.

If you want to spend a small fortune, you can do that, and if you choose carefully, you will get something great. A rather large dose of luck is required as well, since it might be a great wine that isn’t ready to drink.

White Burgundy can be a little more predictable; buy from the right name and you’re solid. Unless you wait too long to drink it and it develops premature oxidation (premox, it’s called, but we can save that for another day).

But move down the ladder to the Bourgogne Rouges and Blancs and things become far more assured. Take this thirty-seven-acre estate down in the Maconnais where the family has been producing wines for four generations. At this price, you’re not risking too much and in fact winemaker Jean-Philippe Prétet creates elegant, pretty Pinot Noir from his twenty-five-year-old vines. No trickiness, only treats.


I know what I'm drinking tonight!

Happy Tuesday All! (Pro tip - this wine is so much better if you throw it in the fridge for 15-30 min before drinking 😁)

Reminder we open at 9am today and tomorrow!


Please note we will be closed Sunday March 31st, 2024 in observance of the Easter Holiday - but our website will still be active with all sale prices.

The start of a holiday weekend for some. The start of spring break for some others. The start of maybe the most beautiful weekend weather of 2024 for everyone.

What's not to love. So we decided to put our favorite sparkling wine ON SALE through Sunday!

The old saying about academia is that the battles are so fierce because the stakes are so small, and pointless arguments about which grape is the “greatest” are similarly stupid. There are tens of thousands of grapes and most people have had only a handful so what do we collectively know?

But now that I’ve raised the issue, shouldn't Chenin Blanc be in the discussion? It can be stunningly complex and long-lived as a dry wine, off-dry wine, sweet wine and even dessert wine. If that weren’t enough, the grape can also offer silky and complex sparkling wine. This has 20% Chardonnay to add to its richness, eighteen months on the lees, and more character than you can imagine unless you are already familiar with sparkling Chenin.

You'll find other Chenin Blanc aged in the caves of Saumur at prices like $44.00 (HERE) and $31.00 (HERE) - but we have found nothing even remotely close to this quality at $12.99. Like no joke. It may be the best sparkling wine of all time at $12.99 - and I heard that from some people that only drink sparkling wine.

It's like a little celebration for your taste buds, your wallet, and your friends and family - all at the same time 😁

Domaine Vellas has been on quite the tear as of late.

They seemed to have hit a sweet spot of producing delicious wine, developing incredible packaging and pricing their wines so aggressively that it has people all over the wine world talking.

Up until last fall, the one area that remained unconquered for them was Pinot Noir.

Everybody talks about how difficult Pinot Noir is to grow but, to be honest, it’s not that hard to grow it. It’s just hard to make it taste like Pinot Noir, rather than a generic red wine. You’ve got to grow it in a nice place where things cool off at night, as happens in this little spot of the Languedoc, protected from the afternoon sun.

The thing about this Pinot Noir release from Vellas is that maybe it won’t change your world, but it will taste like Pinot Noir that makes you want to drink some more - and at $12.99 per bottle that is something I need more of in my life!

I would love more producers (and this doesn't just apply to wine) to be showing me how they are able to push the boundaries of high quality and low prices.

Too often right now I feel like we are all getting hit with the exact opposite of that out in the world marketplace - we're getting low quality products pushed on us at every turn, at prices that make my head spin! Nobody has time for that nonsense.

Kudos to the team at Domaine Vellas for bringing this to market. I took a six pack home to get it in the rotation as my new house wine!

You are the first people in the United States to get to see what may go down as one of the best glass bottles I have ever seen, matched with some super delicious red wine made by winemaking superstar Nicholas Vellas.

We first saw this bottle in February of 2023, and we have been waiting to get our allotment of this wine for an entire YEAR. Finally, it has arrived and we could not be more pumped to bring it to you.

Why do we love it so much (in addition to the glass?!) - a video of the bottle can be found here.

The wine is made from Syrah and Grenache in more or less equal proportions here, and this exhibits what makes Costières de Nimes an increasingly popular and important sub-region of the Rhone Valley. It benefits from the same Mediterranean sun and breezes, and the same limestone soils, as any other southern Rhone appellation.

But here's the catch - unlike so much Châteauneuf-duPape, this stuff is actually affordable!


To kick off March Madness, we'll have this on the tasting machine at all 8 stores for just $0.01 all weekend long.

TGIF y'all!

We’ve been getting lots of deal offers lately, but every now and again we get one that has to do with a national restaurant chain not taking what they promised a winery, and then the winery has to figure out what they can do with the inventory.
Enter 2022 Alexana Terroir Series Pinot Noir.

Apparently a chain that is not to be named was not able to fill their commitment (they do have good steaks though), so we get to step in and pick up some amazing juice at a great price. It kinda feels like those cards out of Community Chest in Monopoly. "Steakhouse chain mixup - great wine coming your way" 

If you’re not familiar with the story behind Alexana, it is a great one. Dr. Madaiah Revana created this estate in 2005 fulfilling an obsession with Pinot Noir. Alexana is named after his daughter and is located in the Dundee Hills appellation, 28 miles southwest of Portland. His portion of the Red Hills of Dundee is defined by ridges that run north and south, with small valleys on the east, south and west sides. Located between 360 and 640 feet above sea level, the site has eighteen soil types spread over a combination of rolling hills, steep slopes and rugged terrain. Revana Estate is 80 acres, L.I.V.E. Certified, and planted to ten clones of Pinot Noir on those eighteen different soils. Each block is vinified separately and then blended together and aged for eleven months in one-third new French oak barrels.

If this sounds like a lot of action - it is. Nearly 20 years in, the investments Dr. Revana made have really paid off. Alexana produces world class Pinot Noir and Cabernet (along with a few other things), with prices to match. So when we can drink any of their wines, especially the Pinot, for less than $30, we are all in.

No hesitation, never a doubt.

Whenever we get a chance to offer Bonanza at $14.99, we jump at the opportunity. Cabernet for less than $15 from maybe the Cabernet Sauvignon powerhouse family in the United States? Yes, please!

Chuck Wagner and his family, as you probably know, are virtual dynamos in the California wine business. Joe Wagner, the grandson of Chuck Sr. (one of the great pioneers of Napa) produces Pinot Noir in Oregon. Chuck, his other son Charlie and daughter Jenny, continue to make Caymus the grand Napa benchmark that it is. So when he makes a tasty little Cab like this, it makes sense to buy some and enjoy it tonight.

It's Thursday. It's made by the same people that make Caymus. It's $14.99 per bottle. Let's just keep it at that, shall we? 

Happy Thursday you guys!

ON SALE Through March 17th, 2024


*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

In a world where I feel like everything is starting to cost an arm and a leg, we continue to celebrate value here at winestore.

I'm not talking about just paying less for a product for the sake of paying less - I'm talking about real value. That feeling when you know you're paying less money for a high quality product and you get that ever so satisfied feeling.😁

Highland Falls at $9.99 is darn near the top of that value list for me.

It was our 2020 Wine of the Year, it sold more bottles than any other wine in 2021, and the momentum seems to only be picking up speed... (so much so the winery was out of stock for 4 months in 2022 and 3 months in 2023) 

What's up with the wine?

"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, Sebastiani 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.


At this price, it still holds the red wine sales record for a 5 day stretch...and I understand why.

Off we go!

No better time than spring to be a wine buyer. Wineries are clearing out the remaning vintage wines and there are deals to be had!

What will go down as one of the top deals of Spring 2024 will be Mas de Corasado at $24.99 per bottle. We bought their remaining 224 six packs to get this price. That is just 28 six packs available at each store!

Mas de Corasado (a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Monastrell and Carignan), is a former winner of the Caymus Cabernet Blind Tasting and the force behind this gem, Bodegas Lo Nuevo, has their hands in some of the biggest names in Spanish wine, and the quality of this offering surely shows.

I know what I'm drinking tonight (I actually had some last night too, but that's a win, right?!)

41% off Total Wine - BR Cohn for $9.99! 🔥

03.06.2024

BR Cohn Silver Label Cabernet



Total Wine Price: $16.99 (Click HERE to see)*

Lowest Online Price in the US!

One of the foundations of our business model is that when we get a better price on an item, YOU get a better price on the item. 

Once a year for the last two years the people at BR Cohn let us bring in a huge pop of this wine at $9.99, and it literally walks itself out the door. It's no surprise though, the wine is delicious and this is the lowest price this wine has ever been offered in the USA (that we can find).

The only real downside? We get one shot to buy in - and when it's gone we just have to wait till 2025.

This year there are 336 cases available. Last year you all bought 280 cases of this wine at $9.99 in 6 days. Just a heads up!

The Cohn family has a long history in the wine trade of Northern California (as well as a history of managing The Doobie Brothers but we must save that for another time...I'm serious). They were one of the original fruit sources for wineries like Sebastiani and Gundlach Bundschu and since 1984 they have been producing their own wines as well. Their first winemaker? Helen Turley. You read that correctly. She's like kind of a big deal right now...just like this wine!

Their Silver Label Cabernet is a staple of fine dining establishments across the country...one taste and it is easy to see why. It's rich, easy drinking and complex Cabernet at a friendly price point.

First come, first served. You guys know what to do!


Happy Wednesday!

The #1 wine from our Holiday Case! - 57% off?! 👀

03.05.2024

2022 Maison de Rue 37 Rasteau



Release Price: $35.00
SALE Price: $14.99 (net)

SAVE 57%



Lowest Online Price in the USA!

SALE runs Tuesday March 5th - Sunday March 10th, 2024


I think it is official now, the #1 most sought after, most repeat purchased etc. out of our Holiday Advent box is Rue 37.

Of all the texts and e-mails we got regarding this wine, my favorite was from two weeks ago. (and really what got us excited to put this on sale). It simply said. "Hey, Rue 37 is soo bad a**. Please set another six pack aside."


In our running for our wine of the year last year, this wine represents everything we could ever want in a bold red wine...and on sale for $14.99 it suddenly vaults into the realm of becoming the top Rasteau value available in the US right now. 

Don't believe me? Just start by trying to find a wine from Rasteau (when thinking Rasteau think Chateauneuf du Pape, Cotes du Rhone, Gigondas etc.) for less than $15...👀

Aside from sounding like Dustin Hoffman’s character in Midnight Cowboy (hey, I'm walking here!), Rasteau is one of the genuine values in red wine. More or less baby Chateauneuf, Rasteau these days mimics the blend that has evolved in Chateauneuf-du-Pape and now extends to other critical areas of the Southern Rhone: 70% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 5% other (in this case, Cinsault). It reflects a perceived truism of wine: if you want to create complexity in warm climates, you need additional grapes. It helps that these vines are between 30 and 50 years old, facing a most helpful southeast towards the famed Dentelles de Montmirail (the “teeth of Montmirail”, don’t you know), so they pick up all the morning sun and avoid the harsh sunlight of the late afternoon.

Old vines, low yields, perfect location? What is not to love. 

A great one not to miss out on. I know what I'm drinking tonight!

Also - Vivino says the average purchase price is $49...so not sure what that is about but it makes me love this even more!

Lowest Price Ever Offered On This Wine - 48 Hours!

2020 Bonterra "The Roost" Chardonnay



Release Price: $59.95 (Click HERE to see)
Wine.com Price: $46.99 (Click HERE to see)
SALE Price: $21.99 (net)
SAVE 63%



Lowest Online Price in the US! 

SALE is 48 hours and ends at Midnight March 2nd, 2024

Reminder we open at 9am Thursday - Saturday!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*


I'll start by saying this is the lowest price that this wine has ever been offered for in the United States, in any vintage, at any time.

We decided to partner with Bonterra on their remaining inventory of "The Roost" and the terms of the deal we struck with them are pretty simple. We can offer you all this crazy delicious Chardonnay at $21.99 per bottle until we run out or until 48 hours runs out - which ever hits first. 

If you are into California Chardonnay, I am here to tell you that you will find not Chardonnay under $25 of this quality. I also don’t know of many single vineyard biodynamic wines under $25 - red or white. Honestly, I can’t think of one. 

The 2020 Bonterra “The Roost” Chardonnay is a 100% certified biodynamic single vineyard Chardonnay from the Blue Heron Vineyard in Mendocino County, CA. Bonterra is as close to an OG among the wineries devoted to sustainability and true regenerative viticulture as any among American wineries. This single vineyard wine comes from a spot nestled between the shore of the upper Russian River and a blue heron nesting site and preserve; hence the name of Blue Heron Ranch. It’s biodynamically farmed, and shows the sort of rich and delicious cut that’s typical of Mendocino Chardonnay.

So what we have for you today is:
1) Lowest Price ever offered on this wine
2) Certified biodynamic and organic single vineyard Chardonnay for less than $25
3) 48 hours to get while the gettin' is good

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

​TGIF!

Top 3 Wines from the Prisoner Blind Tasting!
1 - Brooks Bank Cabernet (21% of all first place votes!)
2 - Pessimist Red Blend
3 - Darley Red Blend


Thank you to everyone who came out to our Prisoner Blind Tasting on Saturday. The energy was electric!

We had a strong lineup of wines, but the winner was clear. 

It should come as no surprise to me that Brooks Bank Cabernet dominated the competition. It was our Wine of the Year runner up in 2022. Vivino lists it as one of the 25 best Cabernets made in Spain at any price point (here). Since its release, it is the 9th best selling wine in the entire store.

So to celebrate the win, and to celebrate trying to be thrifty, we're putting it on sale through Sunday!


It's only the 6th time we have ever been able to offer this price, and at $14.99 represents Cabernet Sauvignon value that I would put up against any Cab on planet earth at this price.

Image of This is the real thing. This is what you've been trained for.

Why is this wine so good?

When one of the best winemaking teams in Europe get together and gather juice from some of the oldest Cabernet vineyards in Spain (pic here), and age the wine in barrels typically reserved for $100+ wines (pic of the barrel here), and the retail price is set to be less than $40...we take serious interest.

When we can put it on sale for $14.99? It's time to back up the truck. 


It is powerful, poised and persuasive Cabernet and to put it frankly, stupid cheap for the money. Honestly, I wish this was one of those things that would never run out of supply.

The Vivino reviews are stellar as well. And the avg reported price from users is $23!

I know what I'm drinking tonight! Let's do this!

Does Big Box mean Big Savings?


 

Every now and again, we feel it's appropriate to tackle the issue of wine prices. Not in the educational sense like Doug Frost does on occasion, but rather straight up store vs. store (or bottle vs bottle).

Since we opened in 2006, we've been asked on numerous occasions how our prices stack up against the "big box" retailers. Most often the store in question is Total Wine. It's a fair question as most of us just assume that a bigger store means lower prices. They constantly tell you that they offer the "lowest prices". Large retailers are supposed to wield endless amounts of buying power in order to get lower prices and squash independent retailers right?? Well, not exactly.

As we have for the last decade, we put this theory to the test by purchasing an assortment of bottles from Total Wine and comparing it to the exact same set of wines from winestore. We selected several wines for every day drinking (e.g. Meiomi and Sonoma Cutrer) and a few nicer wines for a special occasion (e.g. En Route Pinot Noir and Pine Ridge Cabernet).

The Total Wine product was purchased at Total Wine in Charlotte, NC. The winestore. product was purchased at our Southpark store in Charlotte, NC (but rest assured all our prices are the exact same at all our locations - this is not the case at Total Wine, even across NC). 

The results were as follows:

11 bottles of wine from Total Wine (with tax): $351.62 - click HERE to view receipt

11 bottles of wine from winestore. (with tax): $257.07 - click HERE to view receipt

Savings of 27% or $94.55

👀

We were not surprised, but we thought you might be. What could be better than being able to support local business and save money at the same time? What could you do with the extra 90 bucks? In the current environment, I would say quite a lot. Extra grocery money, anyone?


We want you to know we are looking out for you and your wallet - bringing you the best wine possible for the lowest prices - every single day.

As always THANK YOU for your business and we hope to see you soon!

One more pop of Patricia Green Oregon Pinot Noir! ⚡️

2021 Patricia Green Durant Vineyard Madrone Block Pinot Noir



Release Price: $45.00 
winestore. Price: $34.99 (net)

SAVE 22%



Lowest Online Price in the USA!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*


We have seen this price on Patricia Green Durant Vineyard Madrone Block one other time since 2009 - and that was last October.

When we let you know about it then, you all bought 472 bottles in the first 6 hours of the e-mail. 👀 It was also sent on a Friday, and I think we all like to drink maybe a little something nicer on the weekends....we earned it!

The winery was so happy with the results, they let us back to the well. One more pop of 56 cases - 672 bottles. 

Why do people go gaga for this wine?

Patty Green left us too soon in 2017, but her legacy as one of the most gifted winemakers in the world of Oregon Pinot Noir lives on through her business partner Jim Anderson.

I’ve never had a bad Pinot from Patrica Green, but their Durant Vineyard bottling is something special entirely. You can read more about the vineyard here, but let’s just say these people know what they are doing, and they do it better than almost anyone else in Oregon.

Let's keep it short and sweet today, shall we? First come, first served! 

TGIF!

Taste Prisoner BLIND vs $20 Rivals...

02.22.2024

Taste Prisoner BLIND vs. $20 Rivals



After the success of our 15th Silver Oak Blind Tasting you guys were clamoring for another blind tasting. Someone in a team meeting last week asked about the Prisoner and we realized we had NEVER done a Prisoner blind tasting before.

Well...It's go time!


"The Prisoner" Red Blend appears to be universally loved. It actually helped spawn an entire movement of "BIG" red wine blends (and kinda gave Zinfandel a re-birth of popularity if you will), and still sits atop its perch as King of the Gigantic Red Wine Kingdom :)

Which is why we're playing "Find The Prisoner" this Saturday. It's simple really. The wines will all be tasted blind on our tasting machines. One of them will be 2021 The Prisoner and the others will be an assortment of wines at every price point, from a number of different regions. All you have to do is load up your card with $8.00, taste all eight wines (you don't have to taste all 8 if you don't want to, but it's more fun if you do!), and pick your favorite. Yes, that's right, your favorite. If that's The Prisoner, then great, if not, well that's OK too. You may be surprised as to what your favorites actually are.

These events are always fun, and with this one being our first ever with The Prisoner, we can't wait to see what happens!

See you all Saturday!
