Only 112 cases available for all of North Carolina and Georgia until 2025 👀


Summer is in full swing, and that's about the right time for our only Sancerre Rosé of the season to hit!

Sancerre is tough to come by these days. A mix of insane demand, tough growing conditions and the French just wanting to keep it all for themselves, has made it almost impossible to find great, affordable Sancerre in the US.

That said, Domaine des Cotes Blanches has come to our rescue!

The Millet family, the ninth generation owners of this domaine, have long produced Pinot Noir and Pinot Noir Rosé. Among the “white hills”, or “cotes blanches” are also areas of gaillottes, sun-catching warm stones and slate that allow ripening of this delicate grape. In their hands, the grape is fragrant, gentle, and elegant.  As with the Millet family’s Sauvignon Blanc, the method is modern: keep the grapes as clean and consistent as possible, ferment in stainless steel at low temperatures and enjoy the wine’s generosity.

I had a bottle of this on Father's Day and while this may not be at my everyday price point, I can imagine nothing finer for a weekend wine with friends on a warm summer day. There is just something about Sancerre, rosé, warm weather, and good people that when they all come together something magical just happens.

Sad part is though that there are only 112 cases of this wine available until next year, so get while the gettin' is good. July 4th is right around the corner!!

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

Let's do this!

Chianti Classico from the Goat (Greatest of all Time)...🐐

Are we ready for some Chianti from maybe the greatest of all time? 

We all have our favorites, even if there are many other deserving producers. But Castellare was one of the first of the “modern” estates in Chianti, established in the 1970s when Chianti and even Italy itself were becoming wines with freshness when they were known for funk, earth and cheap prices.

Castellare arose from four estates, and they brought in some of the brightest minds of the time, not just Emile Peynaud, the professor of Bordeaux, but also Attilio Scienza of the University of Florence. They implemented the first true scientific selection of Sangiovese clones, and introduced new French barriques, and pretty much started crushing it.

Long story short? We have an emotional relationship with Castellare...and they are indeed the 🐐 of Chianti!

If Italian wine is your thing, this is a do not miss type of situation.

Did we decide to take our #1 selling Sauvignon Blanc and put it at the lowest price we have ever been able to offer it - all for Memorial Day Weekend?

We did!


The wine that was out of stock for basically all of 2023 (we could barely get our hands on any), has continued its domination after returning in January 2024.

What makes this wine so great?


The gang behind Valkyrie has pretty much carved a space out for themselves; their California efforts have fueled their successes beyond their humble start-up and now, after killing it with the AVERÆN project in Oregon, they’re hard at work in other parts of the globe.

Their first Cape Charles Sauvignon Blanc hailed from some vineyards in Walla Walla Valley, and now they've turned to Gascony to use its embarrassment of riches in this delicious treat.

Gascony is foie gras, delicious plums and apricots, rich dinners with Armagnac to follow. But the white grapes grown here are not just for great brandy, they have always been consumed as wine too and the last decade or so has seen an embrace of clean, cold winemaking to preserve the aromas of otherwise neutral grapes like Ugni Blanc or Folle Blanche. It’s also seen new plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, a grape that requires no heroic measures to reveal its aromatic riches. What’s fun here is that these same winemaking methods generate something bright, dry and vibrant - needing only an ice bucket and a big glass for full enjoyment.


Turn that beach music on, and let's open a bottle, am I right?

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

Many of you have been echoing the same sentiments I shared with our team at the start of the week. I'm not sure I have ever seen a stronger lineup of high quality wines at these kind of prices before...👀

And while we've had some strong feature wines so far this week, we've saved one of my all time favorites for the Friday before Memorial Day - Brooks Bank Cabernet.

It is:
- Winner of this year's Prisoner Blind Tasing
- Runner up to our Wine of the Year in 2022
- Vivino lists it as the 6th best Cabernet made in Spain at any price point! (HERE)
- Since its release it is the 9th best selling wine in the store all time

I mean - that is a pretty insane lead up, right?


It's only the 7th 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 nearly $20!

I'm so over how crazy some prices on things have gotten lately. An airport restaurant the other day (and I mean I get things at an airport are more expensive) tried to charge me $5 for a club soda.

I can tell you this though - craziness like that is not gonna happen here at winestore. Our #1 goal is to bring you the best possible wines at the lowest possible prices. It's been our goal since our founding 18 years ago and it remains our #1 goal today.

Case in point? Granicus Proprietary Red.

The producers of Benières, who have created two of our all time best selling wines, know two things well - unrivaled quality, and how to make deals.

So when Granicus launched in 2023 we knew we were in for something special.

So why are we loving it so much? Well, outside of the fact the people behind Granicus are basically a dream team producer of affordable yet outstanding quality wines, we like this wine because....we love wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon 😁.

It’s a place in Mediterranean France that has been important for more than a century but, despite the noise about inexpensive Bordeaux wines, remains the place to shop for value. Though it represents only 10% of France’s vineyard area, production is 42% of the country’s total output. It wasn’t always so, back in 1897, that same area represented only 25% of France’s wine. Most of that was given over to Grenache, Cinsault, Carignan and high-volume grapes. Now producers are trying to figure out the spots where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and even Pinot Noir can prosper (good luck on that last one). But when you grow these grapes on chalky-clay terroirs, and when you apply Bordeaux techniques to it (fancy stainless steel, new French oak, minute temperature control and the like), you can make a fascinatingly accurate facsimile.

$9.99 per bottle through Monday as part of our Memorial Day Sale. To the restaurant in the airport that charged me $5 for a club soda the other day - please take note! 😂

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

Memorial Day Sale - Our First Feature Wine!

2022 Maison de Rue 37 Rasteau



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

SAVE 57%



Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Full Memorial Day SALE Lineup: HERE

SALE runs Monday May 20th - Monday May 27th, 2024


- The #1 selling item from our 2023 Holiday Box
- In the running for our 2023 Wine of the Year
- Our best selling wine of March 2024
- One of the top value wines avaible from Rasteau in the United States right now
- And now one of the feature wines of our 2024 Memorial Day Sale!

Rue 37!


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. 

Also - Vivino says the average purchase price is $39.50...so not sure what that is about but it makes me love this even more!

I know what I'm drinking tonight - and this weekend!

Our biggest Memorial Day Sale Ever 👀 ?!?!

05.20.2024

Memorial Day Specials!

Memorial Day Specials!
May 20th - 27th, 2024
ALL WEEK LONG!



*ALL Wines Priced At Lowest Online Price in the USA!*

We are officially pulling out all the stops here. We've got the largest number of wines we've ever offered on sale, and many at the lowest prices that have ever been offered.

I'm almost giddy thinking about it.

Memorial Day Weekend is a time to give thanks to those who have given their life to serve our country. It's the weekend that kicks off summer, and rings in the end of the school year. Pools open and grills fire up. Kids get ready for camp. Life is good, right?

So this week we're gonna be playing songs like this song on repeat in the store (seriously, that song is my fave - first time you hear it by the pool it means summer is here!), while we're also rolling out our largest Memorial Day Sale ever, with prices that hit the wallet just right.

Some of the gems below we have never marked down to these prices, and a few have very limited availability.

As always, thank you for your business. We continue to be humbled by the opportunity to serve you. We sincerely appreciate it!

Let's do this people!!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*



2023 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.



2023 Bleu Blanc Thau Rosé
Release Price: $15.00
SALE Price: $7.99 (net)
SAVE 47%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

The south of France has been home to a sea of vines for centuries, though its heyday was the late 19th century after the newly built railroad allowed shipments to fill the carafes of Parisian cafes. Cotes de Thau is gaining notoriety for its rosé wines grown beneath the former volcano of Agde, with a mix of garrigue, sand, nearby sea and lagoons. This is a blend of Cinsault and Merlot made in a crisp, clean, even racy style of pink wine.



2022 Sonoma Cutrer Russian River Ranches Chardonnay
Winery Price: $28.00
SALE PRICE: $16.98 (net) 
SAVE 40%
Lowest Online Price in the USA!

It's Sonoma Cutrer - what more do we really need to say? Oak, Vanilla, butter - all that you expect from a great California Chard and then a little extra thrown in for good measure...



2020 Bonterra "The Roost" Chardonnay
Release Price: $50.00 
SALE Price: $21.99 (net)
SAVE 56%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

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 tangy cut that’s typical of Mendocino Chardonnay.
 


2022 Benieres Pinot Noir
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 50%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Fresh and fruity Pinot Noir from the Pays d'Oc, a region warm enough and varied enough to allow even persnickety Pinot Noir to find its happy place.



2021 Snowvale Cabernet
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $10.99 (net)
SAVE 45%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

It's no surprise that I love Snowvale Cabernet. It's classic California; ripe fruit, full-bodied, hints of spice, firm tannins, and an intense yet balanced finish. The surprise is that it's only $13. This is one to buy by the case. Just don't tell your friends how much you paid.



2021 Z/N Zinfandel
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 50%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

I know, I know, Zinfandel is the same grape as Italy’s Primitivo. But is it? Even the best Primitivo doesn’t have the fruitiness, the power, the sheer intensity of California’s best Zins. And how do we describe that fruitiness? I always find that it has something like more red fruits than black fruits, with a little hint of red currant jelly right at the end that is part of the easy friendliness of the grape.



2022 Granicus Proprietary Red
Release Price: $25.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 60%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

We like to shop in the Languedoc-Roussillon; it’s a place in Mediterranean France that has been important for more than a century but, despite the noise about inexpensive Bordeaux wines, remains the place to shop for value. When they are growing on chalky-clay terroirs, and when they apply Bordeaux techniques to it (fancy stainless steel, new French oak, minute temperature control and the like), they make a fascinating wine.



2022 Maison de Rue 37 Rasteau
Release Price: $30.00

Aside from sounding like Dustin Hoffman’s character in Midnight Cowboy, 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).



2021 Carmita Red Blend
Release Price: $15.00
SALE Price: $7.99 (net)
SAVE 47%
Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Recently Almansa has been considered to be hot for high quality wines, but a century ago Almansa produced high quality wines, albeit at that time they were sweet ones. They used Alicante Bouschet, but today they call it Garnacha Tintorera, they nixed the sweet, and they mix it with 30% Monastrell to make this wickedly powerful red wine.



2022 Vellas Sauvignon Blanc
Release Price: $19.99
SALE Price: $12.99 (net) per bottle
SAVE 35%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

To most, the Languedoc is a large scale region with small scale ambitions. Even more importantly, there are ancient vineyards in the Languedoc that didn't get grubbed up and replaced with newer, sexier clones. Older vines have survived, and in the best spots, the climate is conducive to long life, and those vines that have provided the grapes for this wine have long been grown organically.



2022 Benieres Chardonnay
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 50%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

The vast vineyards of France’s Languedoc hold many well-known grapes, including Chardonnay that is friendly and accessible. This one is gathered from organic vineyards on the Aspères plateau with its excellent marl and limestone soils. The winemaking is straightforward – stainless steel fermenters and just enough lees stirring to enrich the texture and flavors. We love finding wines like this!



2021 Brooks Bank Cabernet Sauvignon
Release Price: $39.99
SALE Price: $14.99 (net) 
SAVE 62%
Lowest Online Price in the USA!


This 100% Cabernet is full of dark berry flavors to offset its tough guy tannins. This is BIG wine for little money. It’s basically the wine equivalent to Patrick Swayze in “Roadhouse.” Best movie EVER.



2023 Clos Delfines
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $12.99 (net)
SAVE 35%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Albarino is Spain's most successful white wine and Clos Delfines is a benchmark for the style: crisp, green apple, pear and peach skins.



2022 Grand Moulin Blanc
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 50%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

For Chateau Grand Moulin (the big windmill, essentially), it helps that the vineyards are just above the Orbieu River, filled with small stones and gravel on top of layers of silt and clay. Grenache Blanc provides the meat, Rolle provides the charm and Roussanne adds a distinct honeysuckle note to this dry wine.



2020 Waccamaw Proprietary Red
Release Price: $25.00
SALE Price: $12.99 (net)
SAVE 48%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Put together a bunch of passionate kids (some with backgrounds selling wines for legends such as Eric Solomon and Martine Saunier) deeply immersed in the California biz and you can find some pretty tasty wines. That's what they did and that's what we have here.



2023 Bleu Blanc Thau
Release Price: $14.99
SALE Price: $7.99 (net)
SAVE 47%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

This blend of Picpoul, Terret, and Colombard is so tasty, so refreshingly crisp (but still weighty enough to matter) and, dare we say it, a freaking value that it practically crawled into our bag and said take me home the first time we tasted it. Say hello to your new house white wine.



2022 Les Peyrautins Pinot Noir

Lowest Online Price in the USA!
 
You have been told that Pinot Noir is the most finicky of grapes; indeed, it’s supposed to be the “heartbreak grape.” The statement is not false but it’s also not completely true. To make great Pinot noir is bloody difficult and to do it consistently is virtually impossible, unless you’re in some famous place. But that’s true of most grapes. It’s true that Pinot noir grown in the wrong place is pretty dreadful, maybe more dreadful than most other grapes. But the middle ground has plenty of wealth to it – you need a friendly place for grape growing but not too friendly. With France’s Pays d’Oc, there are places where it’s easy to ripen grapes and areas that offer just enough challenge to coax Pinot Noir into showing its friendly and compelling side. This is an ideal example.



2020 Overbrook Cabernet
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $10.99 (net)
SAVE 45%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

In the world of sub- $15 wine, Overbrook Cabernet is a revelation. I guess this is what happens when you put world class vineyard sites in a partnership with world class winemaking team and an extreme focus on quality and value. We need more of these in the world!!



2022 Kingstree Cabernet
Release Price: $25.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 60%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

This is a tasty little gem unearthed by the pros at Banshee Wines. Banshee, started by three guys who just happened to like wine and wanted an excuse to be out west, hasn't been around long but they sure have kicked off righteously during their short career. They’ve always been focused upon cooler climate sites, especially with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and at the prices they offer their wines, it’s no surprise that things have gone swimmingly well.



2022 Cabane aux Oiseaux Sauvignon Blanc
Release Price: $15.00 
SALE Price: $7.99 (net)
SAVE 47%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

A Bordeaux group making wines since 1949, Producta Vignobles, blends this crisp, tangy white from throughout the Bordeaux region, but especially from under-appreciated places like Bergerac. From Sauvignon Blanc with a trace of Semillon, this is the kind of steely, refreshing white wine that comprises a small but significant portion of what has made the Bordeaux region the centerpiece of French wine production. Charming, like the little “birdhouse” enshrined in the name, drink this well-chilled and with rapidity.



2022 Cape Charles Sauvignon Blanc
Release Price: $25.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 60%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

After killing it with the AVERÆN project in Oregon, the Banshee gang is hard at work again in France. They’ve grabbed some vineyards in Gascony and we’re smart enough to snag some of their early efforts. There’s not a lot of Sauvignon Blanc grown in these spots, but what is there produces wines like this one: poised, more bright melon and citrus - just the way it should be.



2021 Highland Falls Cabernet
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 50%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

"Mountain-grown, it’s the richest kind,” as coffee commercials used to say, but it’s also true of Cabernet. Foley Family's pedigree doesn’t hurt either: the guys who bring you Merus, Chalone and Chalk Hill Wines are behind the powerhouse Highland Falls lineup too.



2021 Snowvale Sierra Foothills
Release Price: $80.00
SALE Price: $19.99 (net)
SAVE 75%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Since the 2012 vintage we have been partnering with Baron Ziegler and Rob Fischer to select some insane high end left over barrels from prestigious wineries and bottle them under their Snowvale and Willowlake labels. The results have been pretty eye opening. We’ve seen wine from Dominus, Hidden Ridge, maybe or maybe not Dunn and some other crazy names.



2022 Rocoiseau Viognier
Release Price: $12.99
SALE Price: $7.99 (net)
SAVE 38%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

More than a half century ago Viognier was forgotten; near extinct. In the 1980s things blew up, with acreages quintupling. There were a few successes, but most just didn't do justice to the grape. Winegrowers eventually found the ideal conditions, while the Viogniers of the Rhone have become pricey and sought-after. Elevated spots in the Pays d’Oc are this wine’s source; to a great degree this is the grape’s frontier now.

When the French decided to build the Canal du Midi, they unsurprisingly chose a portion of the Pays d’Oc that is flatter and less mountainous than much of the regional landscape. The climate is different, needless to say, but not so very different from sunny California, and the wine has some of that same buttery character that West Coast Chardonnay exemplifies.

Though Prosecco is made throughout the northeastern Italian regions of Veneto and Friuli, there are two areas that produce wines with more vibrancy and complexity to them and that are solely elevated to DOCG status as a result: Conegliano-Valdobbiadene and Colli Asolani. A very dry version of Prosecco (the meaning of Extra Brut) is as modern as it gets, but it reflects the growing awareness of Colli Asolani as producing wines.

Gascony ain't just the Three Musketeers, though they have a place in our hearts as well. More than anything, Gascony is foie gras, delicious plums and apricots, rich dinners with Armagnac to follow. But the white grapes grown here are not just for great brandy, they have always been consumed as wine too and the last decade or so has seen an embrace of clean, cold winemaking to preserve the aromas of otherwise neutral grapes like Ugni Blanc or Folle Blanche. It's also seen new plantings of Sauvignon Blanc, a grape that requires no heroic measures to reveal its aromatic riches. Whats fun here is that these same winemaking methods generate something bright and vibrant but without much resemblance to other such Sauvignon Blancs (I'm looking at you, New Zealand), many of which have begun to seem like self-caricature. This one is comfortably itself, needing only an ice bucket and a big glass.

How about a little excitement this Friday? Not the type of excitement Scottie Scheffler had this morning, but still exciting nonetheless...

How about the 24th highest rated 2021 Chardonnay in the world from Vinous for only $34.99?
 
We’re talking higher ratings than some of the top Montrachet coming from Burgundy 👀
 
Release price on the this 2021 Amelia Chardonnay was $70.00 per bottle. Lowest price online on the 2021 is $49.16 - BUT they require you to buy 12 bottles to get that price.
 
We have the wine for $34.99 per bottle - and as always, no minimums.
 
We don’t often tell you about Chilean Chardonnay. If we’re being honest, we don’t really tell you a lot about Chilean wine. This is actually the only one we currently carry. In our search for the highest quality products at the world’s best prices, a lot of the stuff coming out of Chile tends to miss the mark. Not this wine. Not by a long shot.
 
Ever since the Casablanca region popped up on our radar, Chardonnay has been often good, but rarely great. This may be the best example of why some Chilean Chardonnay deserves your attention; it has some of the buttery character of California Chardonnay but it’s far more balanced and citrusy than 90% of California’s output.
 
Single vineyard Chardonnay aged in French oak and scoring north of 96 points for less than $35 - as far as I can tell - simply doesn’t exist anywhere. So take from that what you will…
 
We have 300 six packs that are sealed in wood (you can see the box in the picture above) - but as noted above, you can buy as little or as much as you would like.

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

TGIF!

There is no question anymore.

Belcoop Red and White have become two of the most successful value wines we have picked up in recent years...and part of that success involved a sale price we negotiated with the supplier last year, allowing us to sell this wine at $7.99 two different times.

Well, it's been almost 8 months since we were last able to get this deal rolling, but we are finally back in action, and it feels so good!

All I can tell you is this - at $9.99 these wines deliver the goods. At $7.99 per bottle? From across the ocean?  Sometimes I have a hard time understanding how things like this even exist!! A hotel in Dallas last week charged me $15 for a yogurt. In a world where that happens, Belcoop seems like breath of fresh air!

What's up with the wines?

Well the white wine is Grenache Blanc, a white mutation of Grenache Noir, and that grape varietal is a work in progress only because the consumer is still discovering it. Producers long ago realized its potential for crisp white wines that are so much more than merely crisp. With enough sunshine, Grenache Blanc can develop weight and power, not quite Chardonnay but no light white either. In truth, it’s not wholly a white wine in its density, befitting its kinship with the major grape of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The wine is fermented like Chardonnay in some ways, though the stainless steel variety; its lees are stirred in the tank, creating greater richness and texture, and Grenache Blanc is very happy that way.

and the Red?

The massive Pays d’Oc, or the country of the “Oc” language (people spoke that in the south before they spoke French), covers the greater part of Mediterranean France. After the railroad was built, linking the south to Paris, wines of the Languedoc filled the carafes of Parisian bistros, and they still do today. But the last century has seen vast improvements to the wines that once were built only for value. Technical know-how learned from Rhone Valley producers is applied to these gems: flash pasteurization for part of the crop helps deliver vibrant fruit and rich flavors, much as it does for some famed names in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. What all that delivers is a delicious red wine that layers on the complexity and richness you want in a full bodied red wine, with almost no harsh edges. 


These wines actually remind me a lot of the house wines you get in the local french villages - endlessly quaffable, super affordable and they had never given you a headache (well, unless you drink the whole bottle but that's like a whole different thing 😂)

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

I'll just start by saying that Sancerre Rosé for under $20 is somewhat of a unicorn wine right now, so take that as you will.

Even if your expectation of Sancerre is of Sauvignon Blanc, please understand that Pinot Noir is the next most planted grape in the region, and that it can be lovely and focused, not at all the soft, diffuse rosé wine you might also be expecting. Vintner Anthony Girard has owned this forty-acre plot since 2012 and has quickly garnered justifiable attention for all his wines.

We have his 100% Pinot Noir rosé for you to enjoy all summer - or at least until it runs out! There is not much in the way of Sancerre rosé that makes it to the USA!

And if it matters to you, this is also vegan and organic. Just saying.

So let's keep it short and sweet today, shall we? 

Recap?

- Summer is almost here? Correct.
- Ice cold elusive unicorn Sancerre Rosé? Check
- Lowest Price in the US? But of course

Our release party for the 2023 vintage rosé season is in full swing, and my favorite of all time is on deck!

I should also note, that SWIMBAD has been on sale for $7.99 per bottle only one other time, and that was October of 2021. So get ready for some fireworks!

I also wanted to comment on how much I love that I can buy wine like this for $7.99. I went to a restaurant for lunch yesterday and they tried to charge me $21 for a Cheeseburger and then an extra $6 for a side of fries. I'd rather just buy 3 bottles of SWIMBAD 😂

What do we know about SWIMBAD Rosé? 

- The wine is delicious, and at this price point, it is right in my budget sweet spot.
- The PET bottle is perfect for all things summertime. It can't break (I literally tested it and threw one across the parking lot - and yes some people gave me a look 😳), and it fits perfectly in a cooler for the beach, lake or right by the pool.
- It also fits well in beach bags, swimsuit pockets, and in a koozie (yeah, I tried it...you never know, right?)

I think this online review kinda sums up my feelings perfectly:



Added bonus, we will have Swimbad Rosé to taste on the machines at all eight stores for only $0.01 all week long!

I'm chilling one for late this afternoon, turning up this song, and getting ready for summer!

How does a wine become the #15 best selling wine in the entire store so far in 2024 and we have not even mentioned in a newsletter once?

It happens when people try it, and then keep buying it over and over and over again. 

Have your friends been keeping it a secret?!?!

What's the story behind the wine?

Throughout the last two centuries of winedom, French wine has been aged in French oak. Or has it? In the 19th century, French forests, planted for warships, were plentiful enough for barrels too. In the early 20th century, barrels made from Eastern European oak became more common, especially after WWI decimated French forests. But they were replanted with purpose; the barrel industry returned and has dominated the idea of top flight wine ever since. Yet, American oak is crucial to many other wine regions: Spain, Australia, the U.S., maybe even Silver Oak (they love that vanilla smell). So this is a southern French Cab with American oak’s lashing of coconut and sawdust – the classic aromas of American oak barrels.

Maybe think Silver Oak from France, but only costs $9.99?

See what all the fuss is about!

How about a deal on a nice bottle for this weekend? Or even for tonight?

The winner of one of our Silver Oak Blind Tastings (and winner by not a small margin :), Round Pond Rutherford Estate Cabernet really is something else.

I honestly can’t tell you why there is not more noise about Round Pond wines. They’re legitimately serious Napa wines. It’s a second-generation wine estate in Rutherford with more than 350 acres of central Napa Valley vineyards, along with 5 acres of organic gardens, 12 acres of olive orchards, and one of the only two olive mills in the region, all from a family dedicated to sustainable farming and production. Before the winery opened in 1983, they used their substantial vineyard lands to supply many other, more celebrated wineries (all the big names you know).

This blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Syrah
 offers the best possible example of what Round Pond is accomplishing that is so incomparable and indescribable.

As always, THANK YOU for your business.

We hope you enjoy this wine! Is it the weekend yet?

It's gonna be May!

When the new vintage of your best selling rosé comes back in stock, and it's May 1st, you just have to celebrate, don't you?


I get why we all love it so much...I mean, the wine is delicious...and at the sale price of $9.99 it is just a silly value.

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.

$9.99 per bottle. 5 days only. 


So lets get to it! Happy Wednesday all!

THE rosé of summer 2023 is back for a repeat performance...so let the feeding frenzy begin.

Anecdotally I can tell you that after one glass my wife declared that this is the only rosé she is going to be drinking all summer...and that was before I even told her the price!

So what is the deal here?

Last year, when we learned that the winery behind white wine value superstar Bleu Blanc Thau also made a rosé, we had to try it. So we did...and it was amazing (these guys are good).

Then we found out the price...and folks, this is a back up the truck type of situation if there ever was one!

The south of France has been home to a sea of vines for centuries, though its heyday was the late 19th century after the newly built railroad allowed shipments to fill the carafes of Parisian cafes. Cotes de Thau is gaining notoriety for its rosé wines grown beneath the former volcano of Agde, with a mix of garrigue, sand, nearby sea and lagoons. The Bleu Blanc Thau Rosé is a blend of Cinsault and Merlot made in a crisp, clean, even racy style of pink wine.

So if rosé is your thing (and in the spring and summer it is definitely my thing), you'll want to jump on this bandwagon.


The only real hiccup here is that only 224 cases come into North Carolina per YEAR. So get while the gettin' is good!

I know what I'm drinking tonight! TGIF!

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'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 😁

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

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!
