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

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

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

How good is this deal?

Wine Searcher says the most recent global avg price on this wine is $50.



Over 128 reviews on Vivino with a 4.4 star rating and those 128 users reported an avg purchase price of nearly $40 per bottle on this wine.

I especially loved this one I read:




So let's keep it short and sweet this Friday morning, shall we?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Happy Wednesday!

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

03.05.2024

2022 Maison de Rue 37 Rasteau



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

SAVE 57%



Lowest Online Price in the USA!

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


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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

2020 Bonterra "The Roost" Chardonnay



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



Lowest Online Price in the US! 

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

Reminder we open at 9am Thursday - Saturday!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*


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

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

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

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

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

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

​TGIF!

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


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

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

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

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


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

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

Why is this wine so good?

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

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


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

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

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

Does Big Box mean Big Savings?


 

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

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

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

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

The results were as follows:

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

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

Savings of 27% or $94.55

👀

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


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

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

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

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

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

Why do people go gaga for this wine?

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

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

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

TGIF!

Taste Prisoner BLIND vs $20 Rivals...

02.22.2024

Taste Prisoner BLIND vs. $20 Rivals



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

Well...It's go time!


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

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

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

See you all Saturday!

Last week we met with the powers behind Bodegas Lo Nuevo in hopes of striking up some deals for you guys. They are kinda like the epic power players of Spanish wine, and they always have deals cooking.

Enter 4 pallets of Orlaida into the conversation.

They said they had 4 pallets (224 cases) of this Cabernet blend that they wanted to move out and we could do it at $9.99 per bottle if we took it all. Our decision took no less that 0.000001 seconds. Yes, please!

At $9.99 per bottle this wine represents some of the best Cabernet based values that we have ever offered.

Apparently I am not the only one that loves the 2019 Orlaida, as the Vivino iPhone App I use says it is in the top 4% of all wines in the WORLD, and that the current 2019 vintage rates better than any other vintage...so maybe I am onto something :)



A couple of my favorite reviews from the site in 2021 include:

 



Why do we love it?

Bodegas Lo Nuevo's success has allowed them to spread their wings to other prestigious regions. Their Montsant projects have brought them perhaps even more fame than in Jumilla. Orlaida could become a benchmark for the potential of Montsant. The vineyards for their Cabernet are at 2,000 ft. in altitude in the area of Cornudella de Montsant, with Priorat like slate soils. Cariñena vineyards in Darmós and Masrig are on clay soils, and the Syrah vines are located on limestone.

What does all that mean? Delicious, complex, and full bodied red wine that is right in my wine budget sweet spot! 

So here we go - when it's out, it's out!

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

"In spite of rock and tempest's roar, in spite of false lights on the shore, sail on, nor fear to breast the sea!"
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The quote above is from the 2019 Dry Creek Mariner front label, and while it has absolutely nothing to do with how delicious this wine is, we thought it was pretty awesome and thus decided to include it in this e-mail. If you want to geek out and read the whole poem like we did, you can find it here.

Anyhoo - back to the topic at hand - Dry Creek Mariner one of the lowest prices in the USA! If still waters suggest depth, a wine of this balance and equanimity is proof that noise and intensity aren't required for richness. A blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 11% Malbec and 8% Petit Verdot, this has length and character, but it’s not ever about the high alcohol intensity typical of California’s celebrated wines.

The wine pairs well with Tuesday evenings and people who like drinking awesome red wine :) You can also watch a pretty cool video about the wine by clicking HERE.

The perfect Valentine's Day Wine in 2024 is Mission St. Vincent Rosé.

Want to show your significant other that they are the love of your life? Or maybe like your love of right now? No better way than to walk in the door and pop a bottle of bubbly. 

You'll get extra bonus points for your wine selection being extra delicious and for taking advantage of great pricing. 😁

Not into the pink stuff? Well, when it comes to sparkling wine pink is prime time. There is a reason almost all rosé sparklers cost more than their non pink counterparts. Don't believe me? Go take a look at benchmark Champagne Dom Perignon. The rosé is nearly 2x the price of the regular cuveé!

Anyhoo...let's get back to Mission St. Vincent. What's not to love about this party wine?

It's organic - impress your partner!
It's crisp - easy drinking is the way to go!
It's dry - let's leave it at that...
The price is right - $12.99 for French Rosé bubbly is unheard of!

It is literally firing on all cylinders. 

What's the story here?

Though most people are happy to drink sparkling wine, consumers still seem surprised to learn that Champagne is two-thirds red grapes (Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) and only one-third Chardonnay.

Put simply, fermentation causes bubbles and if you keep those bubbles in the bottle, you’ve got a sparkling wine. This one is a blend of Semillon (Sauvignon Blanc’s helper for white Bordeaux), Cabernet Franc and Merlot, and has only a moderate amount of pink color to it.

Why shouldn’t Bordeaux make sparkling wine? They make all other styles of wine extremely well. And this one is made just the same way they do it in Champagne and it’s maybe a touch drier.

Actually, all this talk has me even more excited.

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

The 2020 Moulin St. Jean became a best selling wine for us two years ago and we only mentioned it in an e-mail one time. 

Then the 2021 landed and the wine sold 137 six packs in the first 48 hours it landed.

So someone asked at the start of this year when the last time Moulin was on sale and would the supplier maybe open to getting on our value train. 

It turns out we have never had this wine on sale...until today!

What makes this wine so good?

The large and sometimes overlooked (but never under-consumed) Languedoc enjoys southern French weather, more Mediterranean than western European. Winemaker/owner Frédéric Bousquet has vineyards that alternate with the critically aromatic scrubland French vintners call “garrigue”. The region also benefits from the Mediterranean climate, which offers a combination of dry heat and a cooling influence from the Atlantic.

Because of the wind called “Cers”, it’s never too hot in the vineyards, and the breeze prevents vine diseases caused by moisture. While most GSMs are topped off with Mourvèdre, Bousquet uses a lesser known grape called Marselan, perhaps typical in the area but hardly ever seen on its own. Think of a dose of red currant jam along with those other two grapes.

All I can tell you is....I know what I'm drinking tonight!

I honestly feel like we're getting to the breaking point on how much things cost. Like, I kinda feel like we're being taken for a ride from some of these companies based on what they are charging.

That's why when wines like this pop up I am equally as excited as I am thankful. I need more $9.99 wine like this in my life! I mean heck, I just need more $9.99 anything in my life at this point!

So where did this gem come from?

There are 10,000+ labels in Bordeaux and nobody really has a handle on all of them. Most of them never make it to the U.S. because there are a surprisingly small number of importers who have range and reach to get the wines into the hands of America’s small and powerful wholesalers, a handful of companies who greatly decide what gets sold and what doesn’t. So it’s fun to subvert the system and bring in some things direct, letting the little guys bring you wines that aren’t part of some faceless distribution conglomerate.

And this is from the heralded 2020 vintage!


So let's drink a little inexpensive yet delicious Bordeaux tonight, shall we? Time to celebrate value!

We needed a super wine on sale headed into Super Bowl Sunday.

Something that was worthy of a Taylor Swift flying in from Tokyo, Usher Half Time Show, first Super Bowl in Sin City type of wine.

The people behind Maison de Palais Voleur stepped up BIG TIME. Do you find a lot of Gigondas of this quality for $19.99? Ummmmmmm, no.......

Chateauneuf du Pape was one of the wine regions that got me into wine in the first place. I had a bottle of Domaine de Marcoux that knocked my socks off, and I was hooked from then on. That said, over the last decade or so, many of those Chateauneuf wines have priced me out. I have had to seek out value elsewhere...and elsewhere just happens to be right next door to Chateauneuf, in Gigondas.


Only a few years ago, we could say that Gigondas, nearby and reflecting the terroir and grapes of Chateauneuf, was the great bargain of the Southern Rhone Valley. But the price creep has started there as well, and now you have to look harder to find those values. But the quaint little village Gigondas deserves some attention; the Romans certainly thought so. They called it in “Jocunditas” which means joy or rejoicing, so we can guess that somebody liked the wine even then. It’s hard to say what the grapes were in Roman times; the Maison de Palais Voleur though is 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre.

We've talked a lot recently about discovering wines that have the "it" factor, but don't cost an arm and a leg. Here we have a wine, in the Gigondas bottle with the etched glass, with juice that reminds me of Chateauneuf, all below $20. That's the kind of stuff I need in my life. 

Just for fun, we'll have the Palais on the tasting machine at all 8 locations for only $0.01 to taste. That's right, spend a penny and see what all the fuss is about!

Super wine on sale through Super Sunday.

So I don't know about you, but I know what I'm drinking tonight (and this weekend!)

Let's do this!

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Sale runs Thursday February 1st - Sunday February 4th, 2024


Reminder We open at 9am Thursday - Saturday!

I anticipate today could create the single fastest selling sale item in winestore. history. No joke.

Why do I say this?

The fine folks at Foley Family Wines came to us three weeks ago with a deal. Could we move some product, at the lowest price ever offered on said product, with the sale coinciding with the end of dry January.

We were like "Yeah, of course, what is the wine...???"

They were like "How does Kingstree Proprietary Red for $12.99 per bottle sound"

👀

Needless to say this is a back up the truck, we are all in, type of situation we have now found ourselves in...

Nearly 250 ratings on Vivino with an avg. purchase price north of $25, it is almost impossible for me to tell you how pumped we are about this one.



This Cabernet blend has been a staple at our store for a long time, and at $12.99 it represents the type of value that even the pickiest wine drinker can get behind.

I'm in for a case. The record for the day is 4,000 bottles. I'm predicting it could beat that number by more than 1,000. Price is right rules.

Let's do this!

Think of Le Volte as if Opus One made a wine you could buy for $22. That's the level of quality and thunder the winery behind this gem brings to the picture. Their famous Ornellaia brand currently runs nearly $200 per bottle and their flagship Masseto currently sells for an eye watering $700 per bottle. These people know what they are doing 😊

What makes the wines so great?

Bolgheri wines are powerful, compact, hard, okay, they’re most often hard and in need of cellaring, but they can have balance. It all comes down to climate – if you are too close to the sea, you will rarely ripen those vicious, vindictive tannins. Ornellaia is in a sheltered spot where the sun can radiate, and where the ocean winds can’t quite penetrate, and Bordeaux varieties can attain deliciousness, complexity and age-ability, especially in the hands of Ornellaia (and Masseto) winemaker Axel Heinz and his team. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are fermented separately and then blended to be aged in concrete and oak. 2021 is a keeper, with freshness and richness in equal measure.


So today we've got iconic producer paired with the lowest price in the US. Questions? 😁

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

I can't say for sure if this is the wine Taylor Swift was spotted drinking while celebrating the Chief's win last Sunday, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was...

How does a wine sell more in our store than Mer Soleil, Quilt, and other big names and it was promoted and or on sale just one time since June of 2022?

It's because this is the ultimate "If you know, you know" red wine. It also was behind one of my favorite lines from a recent Caymus blind tasting where a customer circled the number that was Pabellon and just wrote "If this isn't Caymus, I want a case..." 😁

What makes this wine so good?

The powers behind Bodegas Lo Nuevo need no introduction to our customers; we have followed them for several years now. Why? Because they have a remarkable set of vineyards in many of the sexiest parts of Spain, and because they always bring some crazy value to it.

This is a fairly new project for them, but like others they own, it consists not of a large family holding but is a collection of small plots, each planted 15 to 60 years ago. This is the most elevated region of Rioja, the Alavesa, where calcareous clay soils necessitate a reliance upon Tempranillo and where winemakers Bartolomé Abellán and Sara García rest this 100% Tempranillo in French oak for 10 months.

So here we go - on sale through Sunday.

Let's do this!!

Today we have an offering that not only benefits a good cause (V Foundation for Cancer Research), but the wine is also delicious and the deal is on point.
 
In 1993, when Dave Miner was President of Oakville Ranch Vineyards, Emily Miner became the Tasting Room Manager for Oakville Ranch and a few years later they married and started Miner Family Wines. The Emily’s Cab bottling is their eponymous offering in remembrance of Emily, who lost her battle with lung cancer in 2011 and a portion of the proceeds of Emily’s go to The V Foundation for Cancer Research. But the other reason to buy this wine is that Miner Family wines are just damned good. All of their wines get their fair share of acclaim but their Cabernets are next level; it helps to source grapes from Stagecoach Vineyard, Bonny’s Vineyard (where Silver Oak came to fame) or the legendary Volker-Eisele Vineyard.

We have a very limited amount of wine left at this price, so let's keep it short and sweet today, shall we?

You guys know what to do! TGIF!

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

In the last 3 years we have sent out only 3 newsletters mentioning Austin Hope "Austin", and that may be all they need. Just based on those 3 mentions you all have purchased over 40,000 bottles of this stuff. 👀

Like what is going on here?

Austin Hope, makers of the eponymous Austin Hope line of wines, as well as Treana, Liberty School, Quest, and a few others, released a few years ago an "entry" level Cabernet that is downright insane for the money.

Austin Hope’s family started farming grapes and wine in Paso Robles more than 30 years ago. While they planted apples, they were quick to realize that grapes could prosper as well; few did in 1978. Cabernet Sauvignon, along with Zinfandel, has long been their lodestar, and the power of Paso Robles Cabernet is now a benchmark for California wine. It also doesn't hurt that one of Austin Hope's mentors was Chuck Wagner (of Caymus fame).

The Hope family used to sell grapes to Caymus, and many have opined that the Austin Hope line of wines are eerily similar to Caymus in style, at a fraction of the cost. We will let you all decide if they taste as good!

So this may be a "if you know, you know" type of wine...and now we all know.

I know what I'm drinking tonight!!
