A label that seems like it was made for the holidays (and the etched glass is a nice touch), paired with the lowest price it has ever been offered in the US (heck there are places that charge more for this in France!), means we have a doozie of a deal for you today!

Over the last four or five decades the generic term of Cotes du Rhone Villages has given way to a collection of villages that stand above the others; Gigondas was the first and Sablet is now included among those that are allowed to append their village name on to the label. Comprised of Grenache and Syrah, these are wines that represent the ever improving fortunes of the southern Rhone Valley, and with every year, they creep closer and closer to the character and style of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, only at much more affordable prices.

For me, I LOVE Chateauneuf du Pape. LOVE it. I wish I could drink it all the time....but like $40+ bottles of wine are not in my "everyday" wine budget. That is why wines like this get me fired up. This wine has all the hallmarks of great Chateauneuf - without the Chateauneuf price tag.

So I'll keep it short and sweet today. If either of these things apply to you:

- You love Chateauneuf or Rhone Red Wine
- You love extremely high quality wine for less than $15 
- You love wine

This is a "do not miss"!

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

It's last call for a wine we've only had for a few months and dang, has it made quite the splash!

So what is going on here?!?!

One of the wines that really got me into drinking and collecting wine was Chateau Pavie. It's a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon from Saint-Emilion in Bordeaux...and it's like really, really awesome (that is a professional wine recommendation).

Sadly, it now costs over $350 a bottle (inflation? 😳), and that's not really in my wheelhouse.

So when we tried the 2020 Vieux Lescours for the first time earlier this year, I got that same Chateau Pavie feeling.

We're talking similar grape blend, a vineyard originally planted in 1850, 12 months in 75% new French Oak, and all the acidity a wine like this needs to be an age worthy rock star.

And the kicker here? We can bring it to you for the lowest price in the United States - $24.99 per bottle...and that is decidedly in my weekend and my Holiday wine wheelhouse.
 
So if you're looking for maybe a bottle or two to age in the wine fridge for a few years, this is a top choice. That said, it also drinks well on the dinner table with family and friends this Holiday Season. 

So here we go:

- Top flight Grand Cru Bordeaux
- 43% off and lowest price in the US at $24.99 
- It's the Holidays - let's celebrate, shall we?

Let's do this people!

Earlier this week we mentioned to you that heading into the Holidays we always ask all our suppliers if they have any deals they want to make a splash with, and Bodegas Lo Nuevo surely knows how to make a splash.

They gave us the ability to offer you 2018 Mas de Corasado at a price of $24.99 per bottle for the first time ever!!

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.


Over 114 reviews on Vivino with a 4.4 star rating and those 114 users reported an avg purchase price of nearly $47 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?

$24.99 - 3 days only (or until we run out of wine) - you know what to do!

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

The Best Under $15 Sparkler You'll Ever Try? 🎄

HOLIDAY HOURS BELOW -

I have it on good authority, from customers who only drink sparkling wines, that this stunner is by far the best sparkling wine in the store - and it may be the best under $15 sparkling wine many have tried. 👀

Now, for only the second time ever, we are able to bring it to you on sale for $12.99 per bottle.

At $12.99 per bottle, the quality to price ratio here is completely off the charts (like WAAAAY off). 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) - 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!


100% chance I am pouring this on Christmas Eve, for what it is worth 🎄

Every Holiday season we ask all our suppliers if any of them can step up to the plate with some Holiday magic, and Vignerons de Saint Marc - Canteperdrix stepped up in a big way!

Did someone say a full bodied wine from Vacqueyras for only $19.99? Let's do this!!!

One thing I’ve learned after doing this for over 17 years is that there is relatively little difference in the vinification methods between $25 wines and $250 wines…sometimes you’re just paying for overhead.
 
So anytime we come across a co-op that has access to some insane vineyard sites, uses top flight barrels, and yet keeps prices reasonable - we’re gonna take a hard look. Some of the best wines in the world started as a Co-op. Ever heard of Clos Erasmus or L’Ermita? 👀
 
Enter Vignerons de Saint Marc - Canteperdrix.
 
We tasted some of their lineup way back in February, and the Vinsobres and Vacqueyras were absolute show stoppers. I mean, the others were really good - but these two were really good.
 
We then found out we could get the Vacqueyras, by far the best of the group, to the US for 50% off the release price (see below)…and that is when things really started to get interesting.

 
These wines, much like the Florets Gigondas, represent everything I love about the wine business right now. When we started in this business, we simply did not have access to this quality of juice at these prices.
 
So if you’re like me and are looking for more delicious and collectible Rhone options you can share with family and friends and they don’t break the bank, this is right in that wheelhouse. Also, as a side note, the etched glass and label on this wine make it an amazing gift. Just sayin' 😁
 
5 Days Only! I know what I'm drinking tonight!

The Luce Estate in Montalcino I think may be one of the most beautiful places on earth. While I don't like to judge a book by its cover, typically operators that spend this much money in the vineyard and on their facilities churn out quality product.

So it should be no surprise that the flagship wine from this estate, Luce, rests easy in a world of 99 and 100 point scores and $135 price tags. That said, not all of their wine costs an arm and a leg, and the quality doesn't suffer.

Lucente is the second wine to Luce and is absurdly delicious at a very reasonable price. This is also only the second time we have been able to offer this wine for $19.99, so it is kinda one of those get while the gettin' is good situations You can read a bit more about the wine and see some photos of the estate here.

So today we've got for you a superstar from Montalcino, and a perfect pair for the upcoming holidays.

We ready?

The Latest Hit Wine in Prosecco?

In a world where Prosecco prices seem to be going parabolic (even heavily distributed brands like La Marca now sell for north of $15.00 in some outlets), there is one brand that is starting to take the world by storm....and that brand is Corte Giovanni.

Though Prosecco is made throughout the northeastern Italian regions of Veneto and Friuli, the DOC of Treviso has time and time again proved itself to be the home of the worlds best Prosecco. Corte Giovanni has managed here a Prosecco that has more vibrancy and complexity to it than most (especially at this price). This very dry version of Prosecco (the meaning of Extra Brut) is as modern as it gets, but it reflects the growing awareness that Treviso is producing wines that aren’t simply the fun, frothy party wines that the larger areas of Prosecco make.


So if you're bringing a bottle to a party (these are party wines after all!) and want bubbles, having a party and want bubbles, want some bubbles for the Holidays, or just love bubbles in general - this is one to keep your eye on.

My favorite part about the wine is that it is delicious enough that I love drinking it on its own, but it is at a price where I also don't mind throwing in some orange juice to celebrate (you know, if necessary 😁).

Happy Monday all!

Benières Pinot Noir and Chardonnay may be the dynamic duo right now. The currently occupy the #3 and #7 spots on our best sellers list (imagine one brand holding two spots in the Top 10 for multiple years in a row), and by all accounts they show no signs of slowing down. 

Benières Pinot Noir even retained its Top 10 spot and we were out of stock on the product for 3 months this year!! 👀



So it seems like they are like a golfer who has won everything but a major, as for the 4th Year in a Row Benières Pinot Noir and Chardonnay didn't win the voting here for our Wine of the Year, but maybe they should have. 

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

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

If you haven't tried these yet, at this point they fell in the DO NOT MISS category!.


I may or may not be bringing six of each home today....#justsayin' 😁

Best Selling Wine 3rd Year in a Row... 👀

2021 Cape Charles Cabernet



100% Cassata Vineyard Cabernet
Release Price: $53 - $105

Wines of the Year SALE runs through Midnight on Friday December 8th, 2023

YOUR WINES OF THE YEAR LINEUP AVAILABLE: HERE


HOLIDAY HOURS BELOW -

Since 2021, Cape Charles Cabernet has busted every single sales record we ever had at our stores. Every month, month after month, this wine sits at the top of the heap - and for good reason! This is one of the best sub $25 wines you will find - no matter the region, grape variety, etc. It's one of the best.

A label developed with Baron Ziegler (he's kind of a big deal, you can read more about him here) to take advantage of the high end left over juice, the results have been unreal. The label itself was lent to the project by artist Peter Curling - he's also kind of a big deal and you can read more about him here.
 
We started with Kamen Moon Mountain juice which sold out in just a few weeks. We then doubled down with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Leonetti in Washington State. After the Leonetti success we told Baron the next one had to be huge…and he delivered.
 
This 100% Cassata Vineyard Cabernet is the best wine he's released yet, and I'm not sure it is even close.
 
Where / what is the Cassata Vineyard?
 
Rancho Los Guilicos is the historical name for the Cassata family’s estate in prime Sonoma Valley territory. It’s part of the original Mexican land grant from the 1830s, administered by General Mariano Vallejo, and offered to settlers who would attempt to tame this wilderness.
 
Vallejo gave the grant to his sister-in-law who sold it in 1850 to William Hood; the local peak is named after him. It went through a few other hands before it was bought by Judge Carroll Cook, Superior Court Judge of San Francisco. This is when it becomes known as “Rancho El Nido” or “The Nest” and when Jack London and his love for the Valley of the Moon, as well as the Judge’s expertise with cocktails, enters the picture. London’s ranch was at the edge of the property; and Cook planted grapes to make wine.
 
There were only three owners through the 20th century. The Cassata family bought El Nido in 2002, and have since been dedicated to restoring its glory through bio-sustainable farming. They’ve even re-planted olive trees to make olive oil. They’ve focused the vineyard choices on the traditional areas and the grapes that belong there (like the Cabernet family) as well as grapes that have helped build its fame (like Zinfandel and Alicante Bouschet). This is the beating heart of historical Sonoma wine country!
 
As for prices - you’ll find Cassata Vineyard Cabernet anywhere from $53 to $105 per bottle. As far as I can tell, NEVER has this vineyard ever had wine in the 21st century that has been priced under $25.00.


Should it be our wine of the year? It may not be just because we decided it can't be Wine of the Year every year, can it?

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

Chablis for Holiday Table! 🎄🍷🎅🏻

Any time a wine takes off like this one has, before we even have a chance to tell you about it, usually means we have something special on our hands.

Chablis over the last few years has enjoyed the best of times and the worst of times, and sometimes at the same time. The 2022 vintage was badly damaged by frost, though the hail that hit much of Burgundy spared Chablis. Things were hot, but at least it wasn’t the drought of 2020. The result was a smaller crop than anyone had hoped, but what was there was super concentrated (this is a good thing!).

Some of the greatest Chardonnays in the world come from the fossil-rich, Kimmeridge hills of Chablis; from the famed names like Dauvissat and Raveneau and from recently discovered (for me very recently) producers like Robert Goulley. A top flight producer that is giving you all the old school flavor with a little bit of new world charm. 


We’re lucky to grab some. You should too.

So let's keep it short and sweet this Friday, am I right?

Chances that I will be drinking this tonight? 💯

TGIF!

Where can you find a collectible Bordeaux sealed in solid wood cases (picture below), from a heralded vintage, that has Michel Rolland on as a consultant, scored 94 points from Vinous (I’ll get to that in a second), and is only $29.99?
 
This is the only one I have ever found.
 
What’s crazy about the 2016 Chateau Gazin Rocquencourt are the scores. Notoriously hard grader Antonio Galloni from Vinous gave this wine a 94 point score. From the same vintage and the left bank he gave the 2016 Les Carmes Haut-Brion ($220 per bottle and a 99 point Jeb Dunnuck wine) the exact same score. That is just a reference point for the quality level we are talking about here.
 
I also loved his write up:
 
"The 2016 Gazin Rocquencourt is gorgeous, radiant and incredibly inviting, just as it was en primeur. Blackberry jam, chocolate, cloves, spice and new leather are all fused together, but it is the wine’s textural depth and impeccable balance that makes it absolutely irresistible.  This is an especially overt, racy style. What a joyous wine this is.
 
Like much of the best of Bordeaux, Chateau Gazin Rocquencourt has proven itself over centuries. The elegant mansion was built in 1660 but the estate’s origins go back to the Middle Ages, and it can reasonably be called one of the oldest wine estates in the great commune of Léognan, the beating heart of Graves. Like its name suggests, the region’s crucial vineyards are full of gravel, as with Gazin Rocquencourt’s hilltop site, and the estate benefits even more by sharing the winemaking team of Malartic-Lagravière (my new fave wine).
 
This is only the 3rd time I have ever seen this wine at this price in the US, and current vintages of Gazin Rocquencourt now start in the $60s (here).
 
You always hear Bordeaux collectors talking about “I used to pay $30 for that back in the day”.
 
Well, now we can too 😂 - I actually already took a case home and busted into it 👀 (pic below).

The last two years we have put Escorlada on sale to usher in the first weekend in December, so we thought...why not do it again?!?!?!?!

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 five days only, maybe my favorite wine in the store for what is an absolutely silly price.

This is the one thing I have been most excited for this holiday season - the launch of our first ever "12 Nights of Wine" Holiday Box!

It's a collection of best sellers packed into an advent calendar style box to make your holidays even more merry and bright! Each night you can enjoy being surprised with a new bottle. With a mix of both reds and whites, this holiday box is perfect for any wine drinker. 

To celebrate this launch, we are going all Willy Wonka on this thing and placing 8 Golden Tickets (one for each store) in the boxes, and those Golden Tickets are redeemable for a $1,000 winestore. gift card.

You read that correctly. Worst case scenario you get 12 delicious bottles of wine at the lowest price in the US (and an extra discount from our already low price) - best case scenario is you get $1,000 shopping spree for any wines you want, plus 12 delicious bottles!

Is this the perfect holiday gift? I mean it may just be. I've already given 4 away to friends and family and they have been a huge hit.

Might be feeling a little bit like Charlie this holiday season!!

We have a fully confirmed situation on our hands.

My family burned through our Thanksgiving wine last night, and we need to restock (a case of the first nights, perhaps? 😂)

As I noted on Monday, that means we need some value wine that does not sacrifice on the quality.

Enter a one day sale on Lillie's Collection!!

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 contiguous land holdings in all of California.

Their Petite Sirah, which makes up the base of the red 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.

This Chardonnay? From California? At $9.99 on sale? I can only tell you it will make a run as the best domestic Chardonnay we have ever carried that can retail for less than $10.

It has all the richness and power that you seek out of a Rombauer or Sonoma Cutrer, without any harsh edges at all. 


So $9.99 today only!!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We’ve got a doozie for you today.
 
A new project planted only in 2004, Pontey Lamartine has a prestigious set of neighbors, particularly Château de Léognan and the truly legendary Domaine de Chevalier (one of my all time faves). It might be new, but this portion of Bordeaux has been producing wine since at least the 14th century; owner Dominique Haverlan built upon the successes of the Gaubert family, who’ve been selling wine since 1796. Haverlan, with a long winegrowing history in Bordeaux, bought the Vieux Château Gaubert in 1988, restoring the house and the vineyard. Today Romain Haverlan handles the winemaking. 50% Merlot, 50% Cabernet Sauvignon (although they also claim 8% Petite Verdot 🤷), with one year in French Oak, one-quarter of that new.
 
We tasted this wine for the first time earlier this year and absolutely loved it, and we decided to mention it in this newsletter after I watched two customers buy straight cases of it over the weekend after just tasting it on the machine. It also doesn’t hurt that we have the lowest price in the US on this wine by $15 per bottle 😁. I also am not sure I can say anything that has not already been said about the 2018 vintage in Bordeaux.
 
Flying overseas to find wines like this has really transformed some of our offerings as of late. We’ve opined many times recently that the quality level of our $25-$75 collectible offerings has never been higher, and the value we currently have in store between $25 and $60 I would put up against anyone in the US right now. We used to be at the mercy of our distributors and importers, all of which offer a relatively limited selection of wines compared to what is available globally. Being able to find something like Pontey Lamartine Pessac, and be able to offer it for $24.99 per bottle, just gets me really excited.
 
I do hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family. If you’ve been saving a nice bottle for something special…open it this Thanksgiving! Our time here is limited, so make these special holidays count.

We’re humbled to be able to serve you, and sincerely appreciate the opportunity.

Happy Thanksgiving!

If your family is anything like ours, it goes like this.

1) You buy wine for Thanksgiving the week before Thanksgiving
2) Family starts rolling into town
3) You run out of wine before Thanksgiving even gets here...

That is where wines like Absolu Chardonnay come in. Absolutely delicious, and at a price point where Uncle Jake can open up the extra bottle and nobody is really going to care 😂

Absolu kind of ended up here by mistake.

When the winery behind our best selling white wine, Bleu Blanc Thau, just casually dropped to us that they make Chardonnay and are like "Oh yeah we also make this do we want to try it?"

Ummm, yeah, we do.

As it turns out, Bleu Blanc Thau was not a fluke, and these people really know what they are doing.

Many of our team members here have opined that this may be their new favorite wine, and it makes sense. The stuff is silly good.

Absolu is Chardonnay grown on eroded limestone and clay in one of the newer classified spots along the Mediterranean Sea. Night harvesting helps retain acidity and that’s important in a place that might as well be a beach in Capri were it not for the surrounding vines and the winds coming down off the mountains to the north and west. They say the winds are from the Atlantic, but that seems illogical since those mountains are in the way but, regardless, the nighttime winds are indeed very cool and refreshing. This is fermented partly in stainless steel and partly in barrel, but all of the wine spends a year in French oak.

All of those things combine together to make an epic, rich and round Chardonnay at a price point these guys dominate.

Absolu checks a lot of boxes for me. On the quality to price scale the wine is off the charts. The packaging is nice (when I serve it nobody would ever guess this wine was only $12.99 😁) It's just one of those wines where I feel confident when I open the bottle I am going to really enjoy the overall experience...and that always keeps me coming back!

So let's do this people! Don't leave your family thirsty 😁

All I can tell you is that if you don't know White & Sea...you need to.

The wine has been at or near the top of our white wine sales for nearly six years running, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

The winery actually told us this is one of the hottest white wines in the UK right now, with many stores like the ones here, and here, selling the wine for between £11 and £12 which equates to around $14 to $15 per bottle.

We found this gem at the world's largest wine trade show, ProWein, where so many of the world’s winemakers collect each spring in Germany. At Prowein we tasted and tasted and tasted (someone has to do it). We did all that tasting because you wanted us to find something 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 luggage and said take me home.

White and Sea fit that mold for us - and I think you all seem to agree with our assessment. I believe the reason is the level of value this wine brings at $7.99 per bottle is unparalleled. 

What makes it so good?

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. So here they do only night harvests, and they keep fermentations at low temperatures, emphasizing the tropical side of the grape.

The wine also handles consumption at high velocity quite well, which makes it perfect for Thanksgiving with the family!! 😂

You guys know what to do!

- HOLIDAY HOURS BELOW -

There is one wine in our Thanksgiving sale that falls into the "run, don't walk" category, and that is Rue 37.

Easily in the running for our wine of the year, this wine represents everything we could ever want in a bold red wine...and on sale for $14.99 it suddenly becomes what could be the top Rasteau value available in the US right now. 

Don't believe me? Just start by trying to find a wine from Rasteau 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. Just in case you don't believe us, we'll have it on the tasting machines for just $0.01 through Sunday. We want everyone to see what all the fuss is about!

As for me? I can't wait to drop this one on the Thanksgiving table. It looks like a $100 wine, drinks like a $50 Chateauneuf and is only gonna cost me $14.99. Aunt Peggy absolutely won't believe it!

All that said - I'm also having a glass tonight 😂. Is it the weekend yet?

I feel like everything we shop for out in the world right now kinda feels like we are getting less value for more money. So when a wine like this shows up, and unquestionably delivers more for less, it gets me excited. Yes, you can pay only $9.99 for a bottle of Chardonnay and it is going to bring the thunder.

So, like, what is up here?

Two months ago we asked you, "Can a $10 Chardonnay Taste like an $80 Chardonnay?". After that question I told you the following...


"The wine I have potentially been most excited for in 2023 is Maison Belliac Chardonnay: 1) Because I love good Chardonnay and 2) It's something both my wife and I love to drink so we can share the bottle!

So can a Chardonnay we have on sale this Thanksgiving for $9.99 taste just like an $80 bottle of Kistler Chardonnay?

The answer is - no. 🤣

While it doesn't taste exactly the same, it does taste extremely 
close."

Many of you since then have agreed with this assessment. Some of you have not 😁

But what has been almost unanimous is that this wine, on sale for $9.99, is on a whole other level of value.

So serve it to your friends and family this Thanksgiving. They're gonna think you are taking such good care of them serving nice wine like this...and, you are taking great care of them. You just don't have to break the bank while doing it!

While I'm gonna buy a few for next week....I also know what I'm drinking tonight!

Let's do this!

THANKSGIVING SALE LINEUP AVAILABLE: HERE


All week long we will be featuring our favorite wines in our Thanksgiving Sale, and the first one out of the gates may be the best.

If you're like me and love wines from Cotes du Rhone, Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, Rasteau etc., this may be the value play to end all value plays in that arena. At $12.99 we are offering it to you at the lowest price the wine has ever been offered in the US (and as far as I can tell anywhere at all), and it's gonna blow your family and friends away!

So what's the deal here?


One of the former villages among the Côtes du Rhone Villages, Vinsobres is a red wine only appellation that sees a more diverse set of soils than most of the other Rhone AOCs. From rocky elevated plateaux to alluvial fans and crumbled limestone, this area around the Aygues River is hard to simplify. The usual intense Mistral wind is accompanied by a cooler, gentler Pontias wind, making this one of the cooler sites of the southern Rhone. The wines have a bit more nerve: think of cranberry (yay Thanksgiving!) instead of black cherry, more tangy Grenache than rich, robust Syrah.

Now, as this region has become more popular, you can find wines from Vinsobres for $70 and more (Total Wine has one here), but we don't need to be playing that game, do we?

This Vinsobres from Canteperdrix is 100% Organic, a traditional blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, and drinks as easy as any wine I've had recently. Between the taste, the label, the etched glass etc - it could easily pass for something 2-3x the price.

Will this be on my Thanksgiving table? 100% yes. Is the price attractive enough that I will let Uncle Leo pop another bottle because he just can't help himself? 100% yes. 😂

Let's do this!
