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.

Every time we have a sale we like to send you a note with our "picks" as to the items you don't want to miss.

Rosé is the tipple of the tempting whether we are in Touraine, Tempe, Tuscaloosa, Tuscany or Saint-Tropez. And if there ever were a wine meant for just pleasure, it is a great cool glass of rosé.

These two wines, at these silly prices, are case purchases for me. I always like having some of my favorites lying around the house (you know, for emergencies :), and these will do just fine.

What makes them so special?

As for the Balcon? It delivers everything you want in a great rosé in spades. This unctuous pink wine is dry, stony, fruity, lengthy. Comprised of Grenache, Grenache Gris and Mourvedre, there’s a lot more here than many a rosé that you’ve tasted before.


The SWIMBAD? The #1 selling wine in our stores since it launched in May? In the most recent iteration, the palest rosés have been ascendant – Provence, the archetypal French vacationland, is also the poster child for what modern rosé ought to be.  Pale, quenching, lip-smacking. SWIMBAD Rosé embodies that. It's is a classic G-S-M blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, and as an ideal French rosé, this has significant weight and character.

Get while the gettin' is good - and enjoy this weather!

The Super Tuscan to end all Super Tuscans...???

2018 Il Fauno di Arcanum

Release: $37.99 (Click HERE to see)
winestore. Price: $24.99 (net)
SAVE 34%




*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

If Super Tuscan wines are your thing, this is a wine you need to be drinking. Il Fauno is one of those wines that has a universal effect on people. It makes the drinker think, "Why haven't I known about this until now?" and sometimes "Why do I need to spend more than $25 on wine when stuff like this exists!". 

It's that good.

Tenuta di Arceno is an ancient Tuscan estate, massive in scale at over 2500 acres, producing some of the most interesting and powerful wines in the Chianti Classico DOCG region and under the Toscana IGT designation. The estate is in the southern portion of Chianti Classico in the all-important commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga where Il Fauno is produced.
 
Here Merlot is the dominant grape, at about half the blend, with Cabernet Franc playing a supporting role and only a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. It’s grown in the rather warmer sunnier portion of the estate and, with more clay, famously a soil that Merlot can, in the right places, do great things.

So let us drink a wonderful Super Tuscan tonight, and perhaps begin planning that great family vacation to Italy we always wanted to take. Or let's just drink some good wine because it is Wednesday and we want to 😁


You guys are gonna love this one! Let's get to it!

End of Season Rosé Blowout - let's do this!

10.19.2021

End of Season Rosé Blowout

October 19th - October 24th, 2021
ALL WEEK LONG!



It's that time of year! You might need some wine for trick or treating evening, or for the upcoming Holidays, or just because...and rosé always seems like a good option to me!

Rosé has basically become a year round sensation at this point, but that doesn't stop our suppliers from being scared to have the product over the winter months. It's like they don't even know rosé is the ultimate Thanksgiving pairing!

Hey - their loss is your / our gain, as we took advantage of some end of season distributor closeouts and have, of course, passed the savings on to you guys. It's just how we roll. Oh - we're also bringing these to you at the lowest online prices in the United States :)

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.

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.

It may seem oxymoronic but there is such a thing as the "best place for rosé wine." The Mediterranean coast of France has been making delicious pink wine for generations. Maybe it's just because tourists everywhere need something that's easy to drink. Or maybe it's because sunny Mediterranean France creates wines that combine fruitiness and tangy refreshment.




2020 Lou Pichoun Rosé
Release Price: $18.00
SALE Price: $10.99 (net)
SAVE 39%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Along France’s border with Italy, between the Mediterranean coast and the continental region of Savoie, the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence is traversed by the Durance river. Vineyards are mostly found on the valley hills for maximum sunlight exposure. So the days are Mediterranean warm but the high altitude and the presence of the mountains makes for much cooler nights as air from the Alps descends into the vineyards.

These conditions make for delicious rosé. While this has the look and feel of Provençal rosé, it's a bit lighter and airier. And in case you wondered who Lou Pichoun is, that’s Provençal slang for the youngest, as in, the most favored child.

Nothing says Friday like awesome Pinot Noir from Far Niente at the lowest price in the US of course...and 40% less than Total Wine :)

En Route has had a good life thus far, but being founded by the team at the legendary Far Niente Winery gives you a pretty good chance at being a successful winery. It’s not too surprising that Far Niente would take an interest in creating a Pinot Noir focused project. But unlike the Far Niente style with Chardonnay (fat, rich, powerful), En Route has chosen a more nuanced personality for their wine. Comprised of grapes from their Northern Spy Vineyard in Russian River Valley’s Green Valley (an abandoned apple orchard, hence the name) as well as some grapes from their Amber Ridge Vineyard (on rolling terrain in the upper Middle Reach area of the Russian River Valley) this is a blend of clones and cool spots (even a bit of Manzana Vineyard). Djion clones like 114 and 115 are mixed with the more classically California based Pommard. In general, this wins on nuance and length, more than weightiness, and that’s just how Pinot should be.

So let's keep it short and sweet for today. TGIF!

I love wine in magnums.

They look cool. They are the perfect size for any dinner with 4 or more drinkers. The wine ages better in them. They make awesome gifts (holidays anyone?).

What's not to love!?

So when we get a wine that has been a staple at our store for over a decade, in large format, at the lowest US price? It's time to back up the truck!

Not familiar with Gundlach Bundschu (or "Gun Bun" for short)? They have been farming the famed Rhinefarm Vineyard for six generations, and their Mountain Cuvee contains fruit mostly from this iconic location.

It's a blend of Cab, Merlot, Cab Franc, Zin, Syrah, Petit Verdot and even a whiff of Malbec. It's bold, easy drinking, and completely delicious.


So if you love magnums as much as I do, or you want a bottle or two to be able to bring to that next dinner party, or you just want something cool around the house...you're gonna want to get some of this!

As always, THANK YOU for your support. It is an honor and a privilege to be able to serve you each and every day.

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available!*


You know it is a good day when you can offer a top wine from one of the most iconic names in all of wine at the lowest price in the US!

Who is Max?

Max Shubert, the irascible but brilliant creator of Penfold’s Grange Hermitage, the most famous wine of the Southern Hemipshere. In the 1950s Australia just drank sweet, fortified wines (don’t chortle, Americans did the same back then). Max created a wine that reminded him of great Bordeaux and his bosses responded by telling him, if he ever did it again, they would fire him.

But Max being Max, he kept making Grange on the sly and then, though he never really owned up to it, he sent some bottles of Grange to an important blind wine tasting in England and it won. His bosses wisely chose not to terminate him after all. I met Max a few decades later and he was still irascible but that’s another story.

Meanwhile, you should drink this Shiraz named for him; it’s far friendlier than he was. 

Let's get to it people! Happy Tuesday!

SALE runs Thursday October 7th - Sunday October 10th, 2021


The importer for one of the biggest breakout stars of 2021 offered us an "end of summer deal" a few weeks ago, and the wine has finally arrived! As you know, one of the cornerstones of our operating model is when we get a deal - you get a deal! So here we have SWIMBAD white wine at my favorite price point :) Hey - yesterday we did say we needed more $7.99 in our lives!

One thing I have been loving about this wine, aside from the fact it is delicious and the packaging is awesome, is that it just fits perfectly in the fridge. Like I don't have to make room for the bottle, I don't have to try and cram it in one of those side trays, and it doesn't weigh so much I am worried my shelves are going to buckle 😂. It is a side benefit, but one I love nonetheless...

This blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Colombard is just an overall pleasurable experience. It kinda embodies both the classic style of traditional French white wine and the very modern pursuit of fresh fruity flavors.


As we've said before, there is so much about wine that is subjective. If we are to understand how traditional wines came to be, it’s to know that pleasure is the goal. Of course, we could demand more but why is that necessary? Isn’t pleasure enough? Shouldn’t we enjoy wines for what they are and what they offer? If the last year has taught us nothing else, it is that seeing the downside of everything is easy. Our goal is to find the positive. As James Joyce said of his epic Ulysses, the book should end with the most positive word in the English language. "Yes.”

So I'm going to continue to say "yes" to SWIMBAD white...and at $7.99 I think I'm going to say "yes" to a six pack 😂

Happy Thursday!

Can you ever have too much delicious $7.99 wine available in your weekly lineup? We tend to think not...

Winemaking phenom Brad Roberts took over this project only a few years ago and has quickly shown that the quality to price ratio is brightly reflected in the wines. With half Cabernet Sauvignon, with a third Zinfandel (the remainder Syrah, Petite Sirah and Merlot), as well as a blend of French and American barrels, this isn’t simple or basic wine. It’s got more spice, character and oomph than that...and at $7.99? We're speechless.


Price is good through Sunday - don't miss out!!

Happy Wednesday y'all!

You guys didn't think we were going to kick off the month of October with anything less than an awesome deal, right?

I mean, let's do this!

What makes this wine so awesome?

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!

TGIF. and as always THANK YOU for your business!

Lowest Online Price in the US!

You guys didn't think there was going to be a new Eric Solomon white wine release without a red wine to go with it, did you?

Welcome Trencalos Red, what I believe may be one of the only new Eric Solomon red wines under $15 in the last several years.

There are lots of folks who import wines; and Charlotte is home to one of the most revered and influential wine importers in the business today - Eric Solomon. His wine portfolio from Spain and France is scary good, especially if you are an importer trying to compete with him. His amazing stable of wines includes Marcoux, Giraud, Clos Erasmus, Mas D'en Compte, Janasse, Closa Battlet, Roger Sabon, Roget Champault, La Peria, Chateau Tirecul, Jean Paul Droin...and the list goes on and on.

His properties are all the rage at the moment among the critics, and for good reason. They make utterly lush and delicious wines, and yet they are not wines that have sold their souls (ya know, with high alcohol, over-extraction, too much oak and the like) in order to get blessedly high scores from he-who-must-not-be-named. These wines are rich and impressive but they not only retain their souls, they HAVE soul. Character. Personality. Whatever.
 
Solomon's book is an embarrassment of riches. We are delighted that he lives in Charlotte and that we have the opportunity to offer so many of his fabulous wines. The Trencalos offering today is a perfect example of why he has been so successful. Old vine red wine from Terra Alta, where vines create wine less powerful than Priorat (at $100+) but still rich, elegant, and easy to drink.


As always, THANK YOU for your business...we are humbled by the opportunity to serve you each and every day.

New Vintage!


Sale runs September 23rd - Sunday September 26th, 2021

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

 
The new vintage of Carmita has arrived, and it may be their best yet. So to celebrate its arrival we are putting it on sale for $7.99!

It's tough for me to explain how much I like this wine. It very well may be the best value wine I have ever tasted. Find me some other wine that delivers this kind of experience at $7.99...I just don't think it's possible.

Centuries ago the DO of Almansa produced high quality wines, albeit at that time they were sweet ones. The locals used Alicante Bouschet, but today they call it Garnacha Tintorera, and for the most part all the producers have nixed the sweet part of the equation. In the case of Carmita, they mix the Garnacha with 30% Monastrell to make this wickedly powerful red wine.

It's easy drinking, big, rich and all around delicious.

Oh, did we mention that the winemaking team behind this gem are involved in some of the most celebrated wine projects in Spain? So the street cred, in addition to everything else, is off the charts.

Added bonus for this offering today, we are going to give you a recipe pairing for a dish that the Spanish brought to Cuba - Ropa Vieja. If you've never had it, and you like flank steak, prepare yourself for a potential life changing experience. You can locate the recipe HERE.

So now that you have one of your weekend night dinner plans all set up, let's get to it!

You all know we love all things Eric Solomon here at winestore., and it has been awhile since we have seen a new value project from that outfit.

So suffice it to say, we are extremely pumped to be able to offer you Trencalos today.

Added bonus? We bought every single bottle of the entire first vintage for our stores. That's right, you don't need to share this Solomon gem with anyone else 😂

What's up with the wine?

Amongst the many still unknown wine regions of Spain is Terra Alta, with limestone hills set above the Mediterranean, surprisingly near better known spots like Priorat and Penedes. Eric Solomon's specialty is finding these regions, locating the best producer in the region, and bringing them to market.

This Garnatxa Blanca (white Grenache) is an excellent example of why this region is about to become the new thing in value wine. Refreshing, tangy, bracing, crisp and with mineral notes in the finish. Oh, it's also 100% Organic.


We will have it on the white wine machines at all stores so you can take a peek for yourselves (just in case you don't trust us at this point 😁)

As always, THANK YOU for your business...we are humbled by the opportunity to serve you each and every day.

LAST CALL!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available!*

 
When you make some of the best Pinot Noir in Sancerre, and arguably some of the best Sauvignon Blanc on planet earth, the wine does not sit around very long.

So sadly we are here to tell you that this is your last call for Vacheron, and who in the world knows when it will return.

I know I've been drinking the Pinot Noir with a nice chill right out of the fridge for the last 4 weeks, and I may have shed a little tear when I heard what is in our stores is all that is left.

I bought 6 of each this morning though, as I won't have happen to me what has already happened a bunch this year. I find a wine I love, then it runs out, and I don't have any to drink.

What did we tell you about Vacheron when it landed back last month? Well...

Last time we were able to offer you Vacheron Sancerre Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc it was 2016.
 
There just is not a lot of it made, most of it sells in France, and what does come into the US mostly goes to Michelin Star type restaurants in New York, Boston, Los Angeles and Chicago.
 
Back in 2016, 84 cases - total - came into the US of the Pinot Noir. A cursory run around the interwebs searching for current vintage Vacheron will show places with “9 bottles in stock” and massive quantities like that 👀

What is so crazy good about Vacheron?
 
Every region has its champions, even if it’s unfair to single out particular producers when the ancient Loire Valley has so many heroes. But cousins Jean-Laurent and Jean-Dominique Vacheron are among those great winemakers - even if you've never heard their names before...

If Sauvignon Blanc is your thing - this is by some estimations the best that is made on planet earth. It exists on a whole other level.

If you love Pinot? I’d put this stuff up against even the greats like Dujac at 10x the price. I’m not kidding…not even a little. And in a vintage as lush as 2018, this is just plain fabulous stuff.


Pro tip - chill the Pinot Noir before drinking, just as you would the Sauvignon Blanc. You won't be disappointed! 

TGIF everyone!

A $20 Cabernet Sauvignon worth your serious attention...

You can read more about Gail Wines HERE, but long story short is this: Dan O’Brien is a working class Boston area fellow who fell into the wine trade via the restaurant biz. He moved to the Bay Area to help run a wine program at an elite restaurant and found himself next to restaurant and wine superstars who showed him the opportunities growing just up the road, and he eventually took the red pill and jumped in as a winemaker. 
 
This Cabernet was a random sample sent to us a few weeks ago, and all I can tell you is that for $20 this wine is on point.

There is plenty of stuff coming out of Sonoma and even more so Napa at 4x the price that I would put this up against...I'm not kidding, not even a little bit. It’s also rare to see single vineyard organic Cabernet offerings hit this price point.
 
If Cabernet Sauvignon is your thing, you’re gonna want to give this a try! If Cabernet Sauvignon is not your thing, maybe try it anyway? I kinda think it's that good. One of those wines that everyone will like (famous last words...)
 
Happy Wednesday!!

1 Liter for the win!

2019 Ercole Barbera



Release Price: $19.99 (Click HERE to see) 
SALE Price: $11.99 (net)
SAVE 40%




Lowest Online Price in the US!


*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

As I've told you before, I love the 1 liter bottle format.

Maybe you and your significant other finish a bottle and everyone wants just a smidgen more? Maybe you've got company over and the regular 750ml bottle you want to open just won't be enough?

Enter the 1 liter bottle. Versatile. Fun. Makes evenings more interesting. Also holds more wine 😁

Pair the 1 liter with a wine as awesome as this, and you get magic.


What's up with the wine?

Barbera probably was once California’s potential deadly weapon – we will never know because most of those vines disappeared a few decades ago. On the other hand, Italy's Piedmont and particularly the Monferrato DOC have proven that we already know where the world’s best Barbera happens, here in the grape’s birthplace.

As is appropriate to the tangy fruit complexity of the grape, this crushable wine is fermented and aged only in stainless steel and cement. No oak needed because this is a wine you just want to drink at a measurable velocity.

So if you're into value (this is the equivalent of an $8.99 750ml bottle), into Italian wine, into delicious reds, or just into wine in general...you're gonna want to give this a go!

We hope you are having a wonderful week and as always, THANK YOU for your business!

One of our favorite dry rosé wines, in easily one of the best packages, at the lowest price in the US :)

The importer for this wine offered this deal back at the end of last year and you all went crazy...and just like that they took it away (so it goes in the wine biz sometimes...)

Well, I guess they have decided to get back in the game, because they offered us "one more shot" at a deal price - so here we go! I have absolutely no idea how long this deal will last, but rest assured this is one of the best rosé wines you will drink for $12.99!

The 2019 Argali 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 - it's firing on all cylinders.
 
It also makes it nice when we can bring it to you at the lowest price in the US by a long shot.

Our previous lowest price ever on this wine was $17.99!
 
You guys know what to do!

Let's get to it!

Belle Glos Blind Tasting Winner is Back!

SALE Price: $19.99
SAVE 50%

SALE runs Wednesday September 8th - Sunday September 12th, 2021


*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

Out of stock since December of last year, Willowlake Pinot Noir is BACK. It's now straight from the Sonoma Coast, back in the hands of wine wizards Baron Ziegler and Rob Fischer and dare I say, this is the best vintage of this wine yet!


Clearly we're not the only ones who love this wine. Since its launch in October of 2015, our #1 selling Pinot Noir in terms of gross dollar volume has been Willowlake Pinot Noir (other than last year as it was not available March - December). That is a long time to hold the sales crown! It is a THREE time "Belle Glos Blind Tasting" winner (also it has never come in worse than second) and for my money, one of the best $25 Pinot Noirs on the market today.

We're also gonna put it on sale for 5 days to celebrate its return because, you know, that's just how we roll.

Soooooooooo...if you're like me and this is a staple around your house, you may want to grab a bottle or 12 😂

Let's get to it!

2018 Darley Proprietary Red



Release Price: ?
SALE Price: $24.99 (net)




Lowest Price in the US!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

We saved exactly 56 cases of this winestore. runaway hit just for Asheville opening weekend, and have it at a one weekend only price, just to celebrate!

In the 15 years we have been open, Cape Charles Cabernet and Darley Proprietary Red will go down as two of the most special wines we have ever sold. 

I wish we had an infinite amount of both, but that's not how the wine business works.

So while Cape Charles literally lasted 8 weeks, we held some of this one back to celebrate the opening of our new store. 

What makes the wine so special?

Well, if Baron Ziegler brings us the juice, it is going to be lights out good.

Cape Charles will go down as one of the best we have ever offered. Never before have we had so many customers come back for 2+ case return purchases. By that I mean the number of customers who bought some, took it home and tasted it, and then purchased over 24+ bottles right after they tried it. 

Darley is something equally as compelling. In our 10 years of working with Baron on these projects, this is the first time he was not willing to tell us where he got the juice. Only that it came from the Rutherford Bench, and once we tasted it there would be no question we would want it. He was unwilling to compromise his contact, as the fruit source was too important to him.

The Rutherford Bench, if you’re not familiar, is basically like ground zero for Napa. Think Lail, Cakebread, Caymus (originally), Far Niente, Grgich Hills etc. Back in 1988 when a group of Rutherford Bench wineries were thinking about trying to establish an AVA for the area, the original committee was made up of wineries BV, Far Niente, Flora Springs, Harlan, Inglenook, Robert Mondavi, and Pine Ridge, and growers Tom and Martha May, Ren Harris, Robin Lail, Bob and Alex Phillips, Barney and Belle Rhodes, and Shari and Garen Staglin. So we’re talking the tippy top of the wine power pyramid here. I’ve included a map below of the current day stretch drive of the bench. You are probably familiar with some of the names.

 

The Rutherford Bench is generally considered as one of the top Cabernet producing locations on planet earth. 
 
After bottling, we sent the wine to a wine writer friend of ours that works for a global wine publication. We wanted to see if he loved the juice as much as we did, especially at this price point.

All we got in return was a text with the below photo, this emoji 💥, and several bad words that we are not able to repeat here. We felt like our initial belief in the quality here was justified :) 

If you love big red wine like we do, the color from that glass alone is probably calling your name.

All we can tell you is get while the gettin' is good.

There was indeed a wine of the summer, and it walked itself out the door to your favorite pool, beach, boat or backyard all summer long.

From the minute we tasted these wines, and then saw the packaging, we were convinced they may become our best sellers of all time. 

Why are they so popular? (and by popular I mean you guys bought over 18,000 bottles of the Rosé just this summer!)

- The wines are 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?)

Much like we began the summer, we will end it by having these wines to taste on the machines at all eight stores for only $0.01 all week long!

Let's get ready for the holiday weekend, turn up the tunes (like this one), and drink some great wine!

2018 Bodegas Morca "Morca"
Release Price: $45.00
SALE Price: $34.99 (net)
SAVE 22%




*Curbside Pickup Always Available!*

LAST CALL!
 
With Asheville opening, during our Labor Day sale we continue to highlight wines that we think help set winestore. apart. No question, Bodegas Morca is one of those wines.

If you like big red wine, this is an absolute do not miss. 
 
Clio and El Nido have been two of the hardest wines for us to source since we opened for business. If you are not familiar with the wines, they are Monastrell and Cabernet based powerhouses from the Gil Family (you can read more on the family from a recent Wine Spectator article HERE).


Gil Family Estates looked to replicate the success that Bodegas El Nido (Clio) had in Jumilla in the Campo de Borja by creating Bodegas Morca. When I say replicate, I really mean replicate. For instance, the Bodegas Morca “Touran” is in the same bottle as El Nido, packed in the same two packs as El Nido, in the same 4 bottle case as El Nido. The “Morca” is packed in the same case as Clio etc. etc.
 
The wines are virtually identical in flavor. While they are not the same grapes (Morca is Garnacha based), I am willing to put a lot of money on the fact that if I served them side by side I am not sure even the most skilled taster could tell them apart.
 
Our growing relationship with the Gil Family has allowed us to get deeply involved in this project, and based on the quality of what we tasted we purchased nearly 60% of all the Touran that came into the United States and 40% of all the Morca that came into the US.
 
Sadly, that doesn’t translate to a lot of wine...but we can enjoy it while it lasts!

Inexpensive these wines are not - but if you are looking for some absolutely insane, high quality, powerful red wine, you're gonna want to get involved here.

Happy Wednesday!
