I absolutely do not know of any Champagne right now, and I'm talking true Champagne - the stuff that is made in Champagne, that retails for $24.99.

Like...it doesn't exist. 

So when we worked this deal out with our supplier, to celebrate their shipment of this wine arriving early and in time for New Year's Eve (speaking of things that don't exist - does anything arrive early these days?), we were beyond excited.

In a world where all we hear about are prices going up...we are pumped to be able to show you some prices going the other direction 🙌🏻


What's up with Guyot Choppin?

Jean-Nöel Haton makes numerous Champagnes; the Haton house is in the top ten of Champagne producers. But you wouldn’t know about it unless you lived in Champagne or were somehow deeply ensconced in the wine biz. This family has been making Champagne since 1928 and you should probably get in on it before the centennial in a few years when things are bound to get noisier and pricier. 

This particular blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier is absolutely delicious - and at $24.99 may represent the greatest Champagne value for sale in the United States right now!

Get while the gettin' is good! Today only!

In a current environment where even 1+ million case Prosecco operations like La Marca have had to increase their prices to nearly $14 per bottle at Total Wine, Raffaello Prosecco has proven to be maybe the best value Prosecco on the planet.

That may also explain why it is so hard to keep in stock!

So to celebrate its return we are running a sale at $9.99 per bottle through midnight on New Year's Eve!

Dare I say this is the best under $10 sparkling wine I have had? I'm willing to put that out there into the universe.

Raphael dal Bo is a real guy, born and raised in Conegliano, the beating heart of Prosecco, the place that still produces the indisputably best version of the Glera grape that gives us this absolutely cheery bubbly. That certainly explains why he was the first to receive organic certification for his Organic Prosecco and why he remains solely focused upon Prosecco still today.


But what is up with Prosecco in general?

After decades as an only vaguely popular international wine, in 2009 Prosecco was redefined; its lesser regions becoming DOCs and its more specialized areas, Conegliano-Valdobbiadene and Colli Asolani, gaining DOCG status. There was plenty of good news in that: no more would lesser areas be available for bottling as Prosecco, and Italy could go to war against other countries (like Australia) labeling their white wines as Prosecco. For Australian producers (and others), Prosecco was a grape, not a place. Concomitant with these changes, Italy had re-titled the grape as Glera, thus mooting any possibility of other countries insisting that they were just naming their wines Prosecco as a varietal designation. Maybe it helped, but Prosecco blew up, internationally speaking.
 
This labeling scheme was good lawyering stuff, for sure. But the larger issue is that Prosecco is now rather complicated, if it is more protected and (theoretically at least), more controlled and likely to be of higher quality. Prosecco producers also began labeling their wines by sugar levels: Raffaello’s Extra Dry (made of 100% Glera) has about the same amount of sugar in it as most Champagnes, so it’s not sweet. But Prosecco of old was generally dry and the higher end DOCG stuff remains so. Confused yet? You should be. This is all wine law in full frontal evolution and it’s anybody’s guess if this makes Prosecco sexier or more popular than it already is. That said, it's still the first choice for most folks.


So if bubbly is your thing, this is a can't miss!!

Yes. 

We are putting our runner up to Wine of the Year on sale for $14.99, one final time in 2022.

Ask, and you shall receive!!!

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

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 almost $22!



So let's end 2022 on a positive note, shall we?!?!?!?!

Let's do this!

You didn't think we would close out the holiday season with anything other than maybe the blockbuster deal of the year, did you?

We had to save the best for last!
 
Cinq Cépages was named Wine of the Year in the Wine Spectator's Top 100 list in 1999 (HERE). Three years later it was named number two (HERE) but cut them some slack; that is still some awesome bragging rights. Instantly the wine went from a great wine secret to an allocated wine demanded by the buying public, retailers and restaurateurs. Twenty years later, it has drifted back into the realm of wines for people in the know. So now’s your chance to get in on it….before Bill Foley sends it back into the stratosphere.
 
Bill Foley purchased the property back in December of 2021, and I think they are now trying to clean up the back vintages of product. We tried the 2016 as a sample last month and the wine is absolutely delicious, and worth every penny of $50 - also it is the lowest price I have ever seen on this wine since I have been doing this….and the reviews are fantastic.
 
I’m drinking some tonight! First come...first served.

Let's do this!

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir for less than $20? Yes please!

We ran this deal back at Thanksgiving as a "holiday sale" right before Turkey Day and based on the requests for us to run it again, apparently it was a hit!

Why is it so amazing?

Wine wizards Baron Ziegler and Rob Fischer have been crafting this Pinot Noir since 2014 (when Vivino labeled it in the top 5% of all wines in the world) and it has become harder and harder to get each and every year (it was out of stock last year from January until September!).

Since its launch it has been our #1 selling Pinot Noir in terms of gross dollar volume and 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 under $50 Pinot Noirs on the market today.

So here we go - holiday sale #2!!

Top flight Barolo at the lowest price in the United States?

Yes, there is still time for a Christmas miracle! 😁

Though vintage variance is a thing everywhere wine is made, so-called marginal sites suffer from more ups and downs in their wine quality. Perhaps surprisingly, those marginal vineyard areas can make some of the most highly regarded wines; places like Burgundy and Piedmont, where Barolo is made, are appellations where vintage matters a great deal. So getting a single “cru” like this one in a top vintage like 2017 offers you Barolo in great, cellar worthy condition.

Barolo lovers unite! You guys know what to do...

Pine Ridge Napa Cabernet is an icon, and we're pleased to be able to bring it to you at one of the lowest prices in the United States!
 
We got one of our last pops of the 2020 right before Thanksgiving (nearly 250 six packs!) and now that we are finally able to get a newsletter out through all the holiday madness, we sadly only have 192 bottles left at this price 😢
 
If you’ve never heard of Pine Ridge, they make some killer Cabernet from some of the most premier real estate in Napa Valley. I included a map of some of their neighbors below, but their neighbors include names like Realm, Shafer, Stag’s Leap, Cliff Lede and Kapcsandy.

Perfect for the Holidays and just general merriment! You guys know what to do! Happy Monday!

The weekend before Christmas we are breaking out the big guns.

After almost 2 months of back and forth with our suppliers, we are pleased to be able to offer you Ladron del Palacio at the lowest price it has ever been offered in the United States - $24.99 per bottle.

This is a one time only deal. The deal lasts through Sunday, or until we run out of product - whichever comes first. This will be fun to watch, as this is a little bit of a "if you know, you know" kinda wine. So I imagine for a group of wine buyers this is gonna be like if Ford suddenly put their top of the line F-150 on sale for $500. 😂
 
What wine are we even talking about here?

It's Ladron del Palacio. A wine that in the previous vintage was garnering reviews online like:




What makes this stuff so special?

Many of you know and love "Escorlada" - the $20 showstopper from one of the first families of Spanish wine that we brought into the United States (the wine with the ships on the label).
 
Well, that wine has a big brother...and by big brother, we mean BIG.
 
This Spanish powerhouse comes from nearly century old garnacha vines, yielding some of the lowest tonnage yields I have ever heard of, and is aged in 100% new Taransaud French Oak (think the Ferrari of the barrel world).
 
When talking about low yields, let us take the Musigny vineyard for example - one of the top spots for Grand Cru Burgundy (Pinot Noir), where bottles start around $300. Le Musigny typically in a good year will yield some 3,500 liters of wine per hectare. The yields from the Garnacha vines that go into the Ladron yield just 700 liters per hectare (that means every 2.5 acres of vines at this site only yields 933 bottles of wine).
 
In Napa these bottles would cost $500 just based on that alone :)
 
The first time we tasted it we were floored - one by the color and the flavor profile (think the wine equivalent of the movie Roadhouse) - but also by the price we were offered. It only further reinforced to us that some of the most outstanding values in all of winedom continue to come out of Spain.
 
So there we go. I know I'm in for a six pack - and I know what I'm drinking tonight! 

Get while the gettin' is good!

Looking for a sparkling wine this Holiday Season? Look no further than Roche Bousseau...and at $12.99 per bottle the quality to price ratio here is completely off the charts. I mean, I think we've all seen what has been happening to the prices of sparkling wines lately...which makes this offering that much more exciting!

Chenin Blanc is a special grape varietal. 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 $38.00 (HERE) and $30.00 (HERE) - but we have found nothing even remotely close to this quality at $12.99. It's like a little celebration for your taste buds and your wallet, all at the same time 😁


On Sale through Sunday - first come, first served!

2021 Bernard Chamfort Plan de Dieu



Release Price: $20.00

SAVE 35%




Lowest Online Price in the US!

HOLIDAY HOURS BELOW -


There is maybe no wine we've had a harder time keeping in stock than Bernard Chamfort Plan de Dieu. I guess the winery just can't make enough of this epic value, as every single time it comes in, it sells out almost immediately. Honestly, last time we were even able to send an e-mail out about it was over a year ago!!

What is the deal?

For starters, I drink A LOT of Rhone wine (is that a bad thing?). Well, you know, not like too much "a lot" but more like just the right amount of "a lot".

I love Chateauneuf du Pape, Cotes du Rhone, Cornas, Gigondas, Hermitage...I love it all. So when a wine like this comes along that tastes as it does, and only costs $12.99, I get super fired up. This could easily pass for a $50 Chateauneuf du Pape. It's that good. Heck, there are even some places that sell the entry level Cotes du Rhone from Bernard Chamfort for more than we sell this dream bottle (check it out here).

You may start by asking, why is this place called God’s Plain (Plan de Dieu)? Isn’t that a bit presumptuous?

Well, the tale is told that the name harks back to the Middle Ages, when walking across this wide, bandit-infested forest and scrubland was like committing your fate to God. But now it’s mostly vines on red clay and alluvial pebbles and cobbles. Nothing but red wine here, from the usual suspects of Grenache (mostly), Syrah and Mourvèdre. But like its neighboring Côtes du Rhone Villages, Plan de Dieu’s reds are made more complex by the regional garrigue, the aromatic Mediterranean flora, particularly bay, thyme, and lavender.

While some New-Worlders just can’t wrap their heads around the idea that the nearby plants might add something to the wine, it seems pretty basic. If you can stand in the vineyard and smell those other plants, then some of those aromatic molecules are in the air, on the grapes and end up in the wine. It helps to have skilled and experienced winemakers too - The Chamfort family is a fourth-generation winery, with about 100 acres of vines in Sablet, Rasteau and Vacqueyras, as well as Plan de Dieu, where the bottles are embossed with the AOP’s insignia of grapes with a halo over them. Hmm. Maybe greater historical accuracy would have meant a bandit’s mask and a knife sticking out of the cluster, but they didn't ask us for our opinion on this one.

I know what I'm having tonight. You?

I've been thinking a lot about value lately. I'm sure I'm not alone. 

Every single item in our daily lives seems to be taking a price increase. Bacon? It's crazy. Christmas Trees? Don't even get me started. I saw a cheeseburger at a casual restaurant the other day listed at $22. Fries not included.

So it gives me great pleasure when we can offer you the following 3 wines, all that represent some of the best value we have ever seen in the wine business.

I'll start with our Wine of the Year - 2019 Willowlake Sonoma County Cabernet.

This was a one off lot brought to us by wine wizard Baron Ziegler way back in the winter of last year. The winemaker of the estate where he bought this juice from is one of the most legendary female winemakers in California history. Their $150 Cabernets regularly receive insanely high scores (the 2019 Estate Cabernet - the same vintage as our juice - received 98 points from James Suckling). Their wine program apparently was so successful that they even started bottling some of their leftover juice themselves (vs. bulking it out) and were still charging $80 per bottle!!
 
This is dense, dark, tannic Cabernet for those of you that like the big stuff - but it is not over the top. First sip you can tell the quality of the fruit, and the craftsmanship.


But after having had this wine for 3 months now, I can say with certainty the same thing I told you when it was released. You are not going to find 100% Cabernet from Napa or Sonoma for $29.99 per bottle that is going to outdrink the quality of this - full stop

It is our Wine of the Year in 2022 because it embodies everything we love about wine, and everything we value here at winestore. Impeccable quality, and outrageous value. 

The sad part is it was a one off deal. So when it is gone it is gone - but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy it while it is here.

Life is short. The holidays are a time to celebrate with your family and friends with great food and drink...and we think this would be a great addition to your table.

With all that said though, do not forget about our runners up.

For Brooks Bank Cabernet, I'll just leave it at what Ian Coyne, one of the most serious wine drinkers at our whole company and head of our Lake Norman store said about this wine when he first tasted it - "I have never had a Cabernet at this price point as complex as this...". Ignore that information at your own risk 😂

Bleu Blanc Thau? Sometimes wines just work. This wine showed up on our doorstep with very little fanfare, we put it on the tasting machine, and it took off from there. This wine has become a juggernaut of high quality value and sales have grown exponentially. Even one of our most serious white burgundy drinkers at a store recently opined that this was "the absolute favorite wine I've had tried in a long while" and this wine is neither burgundy nor at a burgundy price point.

No matter which wines you try, we also just want to take another moment to say thank you. We are honored and humbled by the opportunity to serve your wine needs, and we do not take it for granted.

We hope you enjoy the wines and TGIF! I know what I'm drinking tonight!

Our #2 selling Chardonnay behind Sonoma Cutrer - at almost half the price!

12.07.2022

2021 Kingstree Chardonnay



Release Price: $20.00
winestore. Price: $10.99 (net)
SAVE 45%




Lowest Online Price in the US!

HOLIDAY HOURS BELOW -

A wine that has creeped its way into the top 21 wines of the year, and cemented its place as our #2 selling Chardonnay right behind Sonoma Cutrer Russian River Ranches, is Kingstree Chardonnay.

It also doesn't hurt we are able to bring this to you on sale for $10.99, when the avg reported price from Vivino users is $21.29!



California winemaking master Rob Fischer is no stranger to epic high end wine. His track record includes stints at Cuvaison, Beaulieu Vineyards, Etude, Lyric, and several others. The dude knows what he's doing.

But while he can churn out the expensive stuff, his passion is providing unbelievable value for the money. We've seen it in his value projects like Valravn (have you had their Pinot Noir?!?!?!?), Averaen, and Marine Layer.

With the Kingstree Chardonnay, I think you'll get what we are talking about. It is BIG, lush Chardonnay that competes on the table with some competition churning out wines at more than 2x the price. 70% of the Chardonnay fruit in this gem comes from the Russian River Valley,  and at $10.99 per bottle on sale, we think you're gonna agree this is some extreme value.

If Chardonnay is in your wheelhouse, and it is squarely in mine - do not miss!

Cape Charles Cabernet - It could have been our wine of the year two years in a row...

HOLIDAY HOURS BELOW -

The #1 selling wine in the store since its return on August 26th has been Cape Charles Cabernet. It was our wine of the year last year, and honestly it could have been it again in 2022. 

Sometimes a winery just catches lightning in a bottle, and Baron Ziegler and Rob Fischer did just that...

We opined at the end of August that "This will also be, without question, the fastest selling $24.99 wine in the 16+ years we have been in business." - and we are here to report that you guys have set records over the last year that I'm not sure will ever be broken.

Get while the gettin' is good! I know what I'm drinking tonight 😁

Here is what we originally told you about the wine.

_________________________________________________

I’ll be honest…I’m not exactly sure where to start.
 
Back in January when we gave you last call on the 2019 Cape Charles, I said "We are desperately working with Baron Ziegler (who brought us the wine) and the winery to see if there potentially could be another run - but talks have stalled out for now, and even if we can get a deal done the soonest it could be here is MAY.”
 
As it turns out, we were able to work a deal back in January - but I was wrong about the May part (supply chain issues are real!). Since that deal was struck, the winery we sourced this fruit from received a near perfect score from a one of the worlds top wine critics.

Do they now wish they had this juice back? I’m guessing 1000% yes. Are we insane to offer it to you today for only $24.99 per bottle given what it could potentially fetch? 1000% yes.
 
I cannot tell you in good conscience that this is the best deal we will ever offer, as I’d like to believe that we will continue to source outstanding juice like this as our contacts get better and better. I can tell you this is the best deal we have ever offered to date. This will also be, without question, the fastest selling $24.99 wine in the 16+ years we have been in business.
 
The original details about Cape Charles are below (in case you missed it the first time around).
 
I’m not going to tell you how much I am buying for myself, as it feels borderline reckless 😂

________________________________________________________________________________


Cape Charles Cabernet from the Moon Mountain District will go down as one of the best value wines we ever offered. I wish I had bought more, as I’ve already consumed everything I bought...
 
So when Baron Ziegler, the wine wizard that brought us that deal, came to me and said “I think I found Cape Charles version 2.0”, we said no way. I e-mailed him and said in no uncertain terms that if we were going to do Cape Charles again, it needed to be absolutely lights out. It had to be as special as the first time around.

He turned around and texted me the below photo:




What are we looking at here?

I can't show you the name on the bottle for all sorts of wine related legal reasons. The winery has been making wine since 1977. They’ve notched multiple 100 point scores. Their track record with the critics, from 2015-2018 shown in the image below, almost makes it seem like they are cheating. Some have opined that their 1978 Cabernet Sauvignon was one of the most important wines ever made in America.



 
This particular lot, is the exact same wine the winery will be selling for $139.99

Your price is $24.99. That is correct. This is not a typo. $24.99.

I’m really not sure how things like this exist (are we really living in a simulation?), but I’m here for it and happy to buy up as much as I can. 
 
It’s really impossible to explain to you how excited we are to be able to offer this to you! We hope you all love it as much as we do!

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

YOUR Top Wines of 2022 - ON SALE!

YOUR Top Wines Of The Year!

SALE Runs Monday December 5th - Friday December 9th, 2022

5 DAYS ONLY!




ALL WINES OFFERED AT THE LOWEST ONLINE PRICES IN THE USA!

Honestly, we use the above picture every year and I'm really not sure it has anything to do with wine...but we just love it. At this point I can't bring myself to use another picture 😂

Anyhoo...

Do you really need Wine Spectator or some other publication to tell you the best wines of 2022? We don't think so... When we started this company over 16 years ago, we trademarked the line "You're the expert", and we did so because you like what you like and in the grand scheme of wine drinking, that's all that is important. So, in the spirit of "You're the expert", for the 11th year in a row, we are going to let YOU do the talking. We have taken your 21 favorite wines at winestore. for 2022 - using total bottle volume as the deciding factor. We've given those that have not been in stock all year a shot at the list by looking at monthly run rate compared to the top 21. You know, it's all very scientific and stuff :)

Why 21 wines? Because this year the difference between #20 and #21 was 4 bottles and we just felt like we could not exclude it 😁

Also fun fact? In a world where bacon goes up in price it feels like every 2 weeks, and prices on all items are going up galore - the wines on this list saw no prices increases in 2022. We take a lot of pride in that fact. We're looking out for your pocketbook just as much as we are looking out for delicious wine!

All these wines are on SALE, by the bottle, for the next few days - and ALL at the lowest online prices in the nation! We love you all THAT much!

These are the wines you and your friends have been gobbling up at record speed this year! They are in no particular order (you know, we hate lists and such things) - so enjoy!

It’s tough for me to contain my excitement about this one. It is unanimous amongst our team - this is the single best under $25 wine (of any varietal) we have ever offered. It may be the best sub $50 Cabernet we have ever offered. Our long time partner, Baron Ziegler, brought it to us from one of the top Cabernet producers in the United States - but it's a name we cannot give you for all sorts of wine related legal reasons. The winery has been making wine since 1977. They’ve notched multiple 100 point scores. Some have opined that their 1978 Cabernet Sauvignon was one of the most important wines ever made in America. This particular lot, is the exact same wine the winery will be selling for $135.00. Your price is $24.99. That is correct. This is not a typo. $24.99.

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.



2021 Sonoma Cutrer Russian River Ranches Chardonnay
Winery Price: $28.00
SALE PRICE: $16.96 (net) per bottle

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 Snowvale Cabernet

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.  Don't tell your friends how much you paid.



Meiomi Pinot Noir
Ingles Price: $20.19 (Click HERE to see) 
SALE Price: $14.85 (net)

This is what we like to call Pinot for Cab drinkers. Large and in charge this is the Pinot packs more punch than many Pinot's that are twice as expensive. Don't worry about the screw cap...these people know what they are doing.

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.

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

It’s surprising that grapes like Sauvignon Blanc aren’t more widely planted in southern France, as they can be harvested fairly early to retain bright and citrusy acidity without really losing character or even complexity. Maybe wines like this will encourage more winemakers to try working with crisp and aromatic white grapes in Languedoc-Roussillon.
 


2020 Benieres Pinot Noir
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)

"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.

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.



2020 SWIMBAD Rosé

SAVE 40%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Rosé is the tipple of the tempting whether we are in Touraine, Tempe, Tuscaloosa, Tuscany or Saint-Tropez. Provence, the archetypal French vacationland, is the poster child for what modern rosé ought to be. Pale, quenching, lip-smacking.



2020 Clos Delfines

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

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.

So, is it okay if I predict that Sauvignon Blanc becomes the world’s most widely planted grape in the next decade? In southern France, with the collection of hills, valleys, and plains rolling down to the Mediterranean, it thrives. Sure, the plains are not where you grow Sauvignon Blanc, but there are plenty of other spots where you do. There these wines are vibrant, expressive and tangy – and it’s rare that those three descriptors go together.

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.

Do you want big? I said, DO YOU WANT BIG? Cuz that is what Kingstree is all about. The Chardonnays are unctuous, lush, and just plain big. Bring the thunder!

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!

We argue about vintages and that’s because we don’t all like the same style of wines. You may hate Napa Cabernet in 2011 because you think they're weak and insipid; I might find them elegant and sleek. You might champion Napa Cab 2013s; most people do. I might complain that some are too ripe. But 2020 is one of those vintages that makes fans of us all. Sonoma Cabernet in 2020 has richness but also balance. Check out Darley’s 2020 Knights Valley Cab and make your own mind up.

I'll be honest. Wines of this quality at this price are few and far between as vintners continue to try and stretch their prices further and further. It's a big and bold red from your friends at Pavilion...these guys know what they are doing!

"One of the greatest values in the wine world has to be the Kerbuccio cuvée from Jean-Marc Lafage’s Chateau Saint Roch estate in Maury."
- Influential Wine Critic Jeb Dunnuck

Our distributor closed out their remaining 50 cases of one of my favorite red wines, and we jumped at the chance to offer you these bottles at a sharp price.

If medium to full bodied organic red wine is in your wheelhouse, this is a must try. I have yet to hear of any person not enjoying this wine, and in a business where taste is so subjective, that is really saying something!

You all have already tasted the red wine and the rosé from this Jean-Marc Lafage and Eric Solomon collaboration earlier this year - and Kerbuccio is the flagship product from this estate.

Given the limited quantity here, I'm not sure what else we need to discuss here. We have for you:
- Wine called one of the greatest values in the world by a top critic
- Lowest posted online price in the United States
- Eric Solomon selection
- Jean-Marc Lafage made wine

I think we know what to do here 😁

TGIF everyone!

We are gonna kick off December with a bang, and celebrate the arrival of the new vintage of my "go to" wine in the entire store.

How do we do that? We put it on sale, of course!

I love everything about Escorlada. I love the wine, I love the packaging, I love the box it comes in, I love the whole thing.

When it is on sale like this? Find me another wine that tastes this good, looks this good, and impresses like this, for $14.99. I'm not sure it exists.




The wine has been rated among the top 1% of all wines in the world by Vivino, was our 2019 Wine of the Year and is an all around ridiculous value at $14.99 per bottle.

What's the background?

Bodegas Lo Nuevo is crucial to the modern success of Spanish wine, especially wines from the Levante, the Africa-facing south. Here the Almansa region grows Garnacha, among other traditional Spanish red grapes, but unlike the oxidized, alcoholic wines of yore, the new wines are bright and sunny with all the original fruits from the grape preserved. Lo Nuevo has few peers in this grand evolution from the ancient and occasionally noble to something populist, fruity and modern. But they would be the first to insist that their success is conditioned upon old vines grown at high altitudes. Here the Garnacha is at nearly 3500 feet, where the otherwise relentlessly warm temperatures see nighttime cooling into the 40s.

These old Garnacha vines produce BIG and RICH red wines that don't require the same price points as some of the California peers because, quite frankly, the costs to make them in Almansa are simply not as big as they are in Napa.

So here we go, for four days only, maybe my favorite wine in the store for what is an absolutely silly price.

HOLIDAY HOURS BELOW -

When it comes to entry level bottlings in the Rhone Valley, nobody does it better than Domaine de Marcoux.

Some of the prized bottles in my cellar are not $100 wines, but $20 bottles of 2010, 2012 and 2015 Marcoux Cotes du Rhone (I literally horde these bottles like gold bricks :). In stellar vintages, everything Marcoux makes is brilliant; in good vintages, everything they make is great. For the 2021 vintage, consider this an extremely brilliant Cotes du Rhone. Marcoux was also one of the first bio-dynamic producers in all of France...which only proves they've been ahead of the curve for a LONG time.

Every time I get to drink a bottle of this stuff, I pull the glass away and just think "Darn, that is a great bottle of wine for $20." It really does taste like a baby Chateauneuf du Pape, and for the price, for my taste buds, it is just about everything I could ever want in a bottle of wine.

For this price, it is a dream wine for all lovers of Rhone wines.

Only downside? Our distributor was closing this wine out and only had 416 bottles available at this price...so get while the gettin' is good!!

Let's do this!

Mollydooker The Boxer - 17% Off Total Wine for Cyber Monday!

2020 Mollydooker "The Boxer"



Total Wine Price: $29.99 (Click HERE to see)*
winestore. Price: $24.99 (net)
SAVE 17%




Lowest Online Price in the US!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available!*


We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family!

We've never done a Cyber Monday deal before, but we decided why should everyone else get to have all the fun?!?!?!? 

Mollydooker "The Boxer" is a 100% Shiraz that has been on fire ever since it was first released. The wine went from never having been produced to becoming one of the biggest names in Australian wine in the US market almost overnight (with a little help from wine critics, of course!)

Those of you who love The Boxer, REALLY love it. Those of you who don't like The Boxer, REALLY don't like it :)

Polarizing? Yes.

Insanely popular? Also a yes.

It may be the biggest, most fruit forward and powerful wine we carry. If light, subtle, and nuance are part of your wine vocabulary - this is probably not in your wheelhouse :)

For those of you into the Thermonuclear Fruit Bombs - come and get it!!

Happy Monday everyone!!
