We've got a special one for you today!

Think of Le Volte as if Opus One made a wine you could buy for $18. 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. 2019 is a keeper, with freshness and richness in equal measure.


This is the lowest price we have ever been able to offer Le Volte for, so get while the gettin' is good!

You guys know what to do!

Happy Thursday!

Aside from the awesome packaging here (I'm a sucker for these bottles with the glass stoppers), this white wine stopped me in my tracks the first time I tried it. Over the last year it has pretty much become the house white wine at our place, and every time I pull it out of the fridge and see this label, I think of this song...and that puts me in a great mood!

We worked out a deal with the importer to run this deal right at the start of May, and I am ready to back up my cooler 😁 Let's do this!

What makes Le Cabas so awesome?

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

So if you're with me, and 85 degree weather has you thinking "Summertimes Calling Me" (or maybe you like this one too?), then grab yourself a bottle!

As always, THANK YOU for your business and support. It means more than ever!

Today is one of those days in the wine business that gets you crazy excited. Austin Hope, makers of the eponymous Austin Hope line of wines, as well as Treana, Liberty School, Quest, and a few others, has just released 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!

The Largest Magnum Purchase in the History of Ken Wright Cellars...

04.29.2021

Ken Wright Single Vineyard Magnums

Lowest Prices in the US!

*All magnums held at our Southpark location. Please allow one week for transfer to another store if necessary*


We continue to recommend using our website (HERE) and choosing in store / curbside pickup, and we will walk your order out and place it in your car.

We worked out a deal back in February which amounted to the single largest 1.5L purchase in the history of Ken Wright Cellars. We purchased 228 magnums, almost their entire collection, in one transaction. Obviously the reason for this is that we are now able to offer you these gems at the lowest price in the US - $99.99 per magnum. You’ll find most of the 2016s and 2017s for sale online for between $130 and $160 per bottle - HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, etc.
 
They don’t make a lot of these (I actually had never even seen a magnum of their single vineyard offerings until last week), so this is an exciting opportunity for us to bring to you. I find more and more I open magnums for dinner parties, family and friend holiday gatherings (July 4th, Thanksgiving etc.) and for special occasions. They present great, are more fun, and don’t require bringing a ton of bottles.

30 magnums have sold since they arrived a few days ago (and we haven't even had a chance to tell you about them), so these won't last long. Most common phrase we've heard from people into these wines is "How did you get access to Ken Wright Single Vineyard Magnums?" 😁

We have listed out what is available below.

Our 2020 Wine of the Year - On Sale for $9.99!

Our 2020 Wine Of The Year, Highland Falls, has shown no signs of slowing. You guys have gobbled up nearly 10,000 bottles in just the first 4 months of the year...so I guess you can say it's pretty popular  😁

That said, many of you have asked when it will go back on sale. Last time we had it at this price was December 12th, and you guys know we are in the business of giving the people what they want! So here we go!

6 days only. You know what to do.

What's up with the wine?

"Mountain-grown, it’s the richest kind,” as coffee commercials used to say, but it’s also true of Cabernet. You rarely, if ever, can find mountain fruit in $12 wines. Like, I can't even think of one off the top of my head.

Foley Family's winemaking pedigree being involved doesn’t hurt either: the guys who bring you Merus, Chalone and Chalk Hill Wines are behind the powerhouse Highland Falls lineup too.

It's kinda like if the people behind Dom Perignon launched a $12 sparkler - or the winemaking team behind Rombauer rolled out a $12 Cali Chardonnay.....these are the best of the best in the Cabernet world, bringing you world class value.


Let's get to it!

The Best $9.99 Sparkler We've Ever Tasted...

There is a chance that you've read somewhere that supply chains everywhere have been disrupted due to COVID. The wine industry is not immune to this situation. This Prosecco, easily the best $10 sparkling wine we have ever tasted, has been out of stock since December. 

It is FINALLY rolling into all our stores this morning, and today is going to be a great day!

The minute we tasted this "extra dry" Prosecco from Raphael Dal Bo we knew we had found something special. Once we saw the price we knew we had basically gone all Indiana Jones and found the Holy Grail of Prosecco. Tastes great in a mimosa? You know it. Tastes great on its own? Of course. Budget friendly? Bingo.

What's up with Prosecco?

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.

TGIF everyone!

We continue to recommend using our website (HERE) and choosing in store / curbside pickup, and we will walk your order out and place it in your car.

In some weird world I thought this wine was going to last like 7-8 months. I was terribly wrong.
 
Ever since this e-mail went out almost 30 days ago, this wine has gone out the door at a clip of more than 15 cases per day, every day, seven days a week. This is also a wine where we have had more 2+ case re-orders from customers than on any other wine we have ever sold. (meaning the number of you who bought some, took it home and tried it, and then came back and bought 2+ cases is off the charts)
 
While it is incredibly exciting that people have loved the wine that much, it kinda stinks as we are going to run out soon. The last 300 cases of this arrived last Friday.  At our current clip that means this will last 17(ish) days (but we all know when things get low the velocity speeds up considerably).
 
I’m in for another case…and I’ll pretend like I’m going to save some and drink it over the next year. Truth be told, I’ll drink through it before July 4th :)


Here is what we told you about the wine the first time:

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 from one of the top, if not the top, estate in all of Sonoma County - but it's a name we cannot give you for all sorts of wine related legal reasons. Their vineyards in the Moon Mountain District are managed by a viticulturalist with clients like Harlan and Bedrock and the wines are made by a winemaker whose portfolio basically only encompasses $150 per bottle small lot wines
 
This particular lot, from 2017, was destined to go into one of the premier offerings at the winery, priced at $155. They decided the quality for $155 single block offering wasn't quite there, so they decided to sell the juice off into the bulk market.

We bought it. Yes, it's only a one time deal. But we bought every last bit of it :)


Other vintages of this wine include vivino write ups like this:


 
So the stars had aligned for a great opportunity - only issue what label would it be bottled under? It needed to be special, to reflect the insane quality of the wine. So we set to work with Baron on what we could do...
 
We partnered with celebrated Irish hunting and equestrian artist Peter Curling, and turned his 2002 painting “Royal Ascot Jubilee 2002” into a wine label. Last fall we got sign off on the label from Sir Francis Brooke, the Queen’s representative at Ascot (she is featured in the painting), and now we are ready to turn it loose. The painting was transferred to digital form by Tony Murray.
 
Nearly 30% of all the cases bottled under this one time label were sold to a distributor in the United Kingdom, to be sold in London and Windsor (and I assure you they will not be charging $24.99 per bottle). 
 
Oh, I forgot to mention, yes this wine is only $24.99. Moon Mountain District, epic winery, world class winemaking team - $24.99.
 
Very good chance Oprah will be serving this at her next interview with Harry and Meghan :)

The #2 selling white wine in the entire store, one of our "Wines of the Year" for all of 2020, and personally my go to house white wine, is on sale through Sunday! 

In all honesty, at this price this may be the best value wine in the store for me. I challenge anyone that if they find something for $10 that is better we want to know about it asap! :)

Not that many years ago, Albariño was an unusual addition to a wine list, generally the sole example of Spanish white wine. It was followed by other grapes, particularly Verdejo from Rueda, and many of us wine watchers think that Godello is the next big white Spanish grape. But Albariño is no longer an odd corner on retail shelves; now there’s an actual section. And if the grape’s producers have stopped trying every winemaking trick under the sun (brand new barrels, barrel fermentation, sweet styles), there’s plenty of variety still available, albeit of a subtler kind.

Well-known producer Bodegas lo Nuevo gives the grapes only a short bit of skin contact, at very cold temperatures, and then only a portion of the wine is fermented in large puncheons and demi-muids. The rest is in stainless steel, of course, because those vessels preserve the real charm of Albariño in its tangy citrus fruit, its hints of tropical ripeness and the mineral character from a wine grown next to the sea.


We are truly thankful to be able to continue to serve you and your family. Happy Tuesday!

Rutherford Bench Cabernet from the same people who brought you Cape Charles!

04.09.2021

2018 Darley Rutherford Bench Proprietary Red



winestore. Price: $29.99



Lowest Price in the US!

We continue to recommend using our website (HERE) and choosing in store / curbside pickup, and we will walk your order out and place it in your car

I’m hoping you’re beginning to see a pattern here. If Baron Ziegler brings us the juice, it is going to be lights out good.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 
This is the smallest lot that Baron brought us, so not much to go around.

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

Breakout star for $9.99 is back!

Maybe the breakout star for us in 2020 was Chazeaux. We sent you an e-mail about it one time in 2020 and you all clearly like what you tasted the first time you bought it. You came back for more and more to the tune of over 20,000 bottles.

That kind of sales velocity matched with the global supply issues going on right now (container shortage anyone?) sent the wine out of stock for almost the entire first quarter of 2021.

Well, we are here to announce to you that the wine is back! Prepare to buy your favorite inexpensive Pinot with abandon.

Beuchottes hails from the Languedoc-Roussillon, a region of France where Pinot Noir can prosper, but only in the cooler spots. As you have probably guessed, the components for this little gem come from some of the coolest areas in the region. That said, the main goal here was to marry a traditional and elegant French style of winemaking while highlighting some of the vibrant complexity you find in larger reds from the Languedoc - and Beuchottes accomplishes that in spades.

TGIF everyone!

Let's get to it!

Our best Sauvignon Blanc find in a loooooong time...

03.30.2021

2019 Cape Charles Sauvignon Blanc


 

Release Price: $25.00
winestore. Price: $14.99 (net)
SALE Price: $12.99 (net)

Lowest Price in the US!

Sale runs Tuesday March 30th - Sunday April 4th, 2021*

*Our stores will be closed on Sunday April 4th, but all sale wines will be available at their deal prices for online ordering through midnight on Sunday.*


We continue to recommend using our website (HERE) and choosing in store / curbside pickup, and we will walk your order out and place it in your car.

This is one of the most high quality Sauvignon Blanc finds we have uncovered in some time, and it is rolling in just in time for warmer (I mean it is sloooowly getting warmer) weather.

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

They’ve grabbed some vineyards in Walla Walla Valley, Red Mountain and Horse Heaven Hills and we’re lucky enough to get in on these early efforts. There’s not a lot of Sauvignon Blanc grown in these spots – far less than there should be. But what is there produces wine like this one: poised, more bright melon and citrus - just the way it should be.


Pairs well with Easter brunch, a cool evening on the patio, binge watching Netflix (anyone got any new shows?) and pretty much anything else you can think of...

If you love crisp, dry white wine - do not miss.

Honestly, we can't help ourselves. We just love doing deals.

So many people have been asking over the last several months "When is Benières going back on sale?" and we're all like "Probably Memorial Day" and finally we just decided - "Let's give the people what they want."



We told you back in December that Benières Pinot Noir and Chardonnay didn't win the voting here for our Wine of the Year, but maybe they should have. That we were not sure there is any brand we carry more on fire than Benieres - and that there is no brand bringing more thunder when it comes to the quality / price ratio than these wines right now.

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


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

You guys know the drill! Let's do this!

SALE Price: $7.99 (net)

Lowest Price in the US!

Sale runs Tuesday March 23rd - Sunday March 28th, 2021


We continue to recommend using our website (HERE) and choosing in store / curbside pickup, and we will walk your order out and place it in your car.

You all will be drinking the very first bottles of this Viognier ever sold in the United States, and we put it on sale for $7.99 to celebrate!

We've opined time and time again here that we need more sub $10 wine in our lives, and this one is checking all of the boxes for me and then some.

We’re familiar with Viognier, right? Ten years ago, probably not. More than a half century ago the grape was forgotten; near extinct. Certainly, two or three decades ago, only a few were true believers. But amongst them were some California and Australia winemakers.

In the 1980s, especially in California vineyards, things blew up, with acreages tripling and quintupling and other terms I’ve forgotten. There were a few successes, but many were too ripe, unbalanced and often as not smothered in new oak, like that helped. It might be unfair to say, but most in the second wave just didn't do justice to the grape or that first group of winemakers. The pioneering wineries like Alban Cellars did first rate work. On their heels, others like Calera made well-balanced aromatic versions – they knew they needed less ripeness to achieve their aim. The French too know well that the grape has to be in the right spot; the northern Rhone offers a small bit of acreage. Winegrowers have found the ideal and specific conditions in other places over the last thirty years, as the Viogniers of the northern Rhone have become pricey and sought-after. Elevated spots in the Pays d’Oc are this wine’s source; to a great degree this is the grape’s frontier now.

Think dry, floral, peachy fruits and plenty of zest. Pairs perfectly with Tuesday night :)


Happy Tuesday! Let's get to it!

I lied...this will be our best selling wine this year.

03.19.2021

2017 Cape Charles Cabernet

Release Price: $155.00?
winestore. Price: $24.99 (net)
SAVE 84%




We continue to recommend using our website (HERE) and choosing in store / curbside pickup, and we will walk your order out and place it in your car.

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 from one of the top, if not the top, estate in all of Sonoma County - but it's a name we cannot give you for all sorts of wine related legal reasons. Their vineyards in the Moon Mountain District are managed by a viticulturalist with clients like Harlan and Bedrock and the wines are made by a winemaker whose portfolio basically only encompasses $150 per bottle small lot wines
 
This particular lot, from 2017, was destined to go into one of the premier offerings at the winery, priced at $155. They decided the quality for $155 single block offering wasn't quite there, so they decided to sell the juice off into the bulk market.

We bought it. Yes, it's only a one time deal. But we bought every last bit of it :)


Other vintages of this wine include vivino write ups like this:


 
So the stars had aligned for a great opportunity - only issue what label would it be bottled under? It needed to be special, to reflect the insane quality of the wine. So we set to work with Baron on what we could do...
 
We partnered with celebrated Irish hunting and equestrian artist Peter Curling, and turned his 2002 painting “Royal Ascot Jubilee 2002” into a wine label. Last fall we got sign off on the label from Sir Francis Brooke, the Queen’s representative at Ascot (she is featured in the painting), and now we are ready to turn it loose. The painting was transferred to digital form by Tony Murray.
 
Nearly 30% of all the cases bottled under this one time label were sold to a distributor in the United Kingdom, to be sold in London and Windsor (and I assure you they will not be charging $24.99 per bottle). 
 
Oh, I forgot to mention, yes this wine is only $24.99. Moon Mountain District, epic winery, world class winemaking team - $24.99.
 
Very good chance Oprah will be serving this at her next interview with Harry and Meghan :)

I know what I'm drinking this weekend.

TGIF!

I'll be honest, I just felt like we needed to kick off the weekend with a ridiculous deal (Thursday is the start of the weekend, right?) So why not choose one of our best selling crisp, dry white wines - and sell it for a price we have never offered before!

I mean, honestly, I'm pretty sure a local steakhouse charged me $6.99 for two diet cokes at lunch one time...so $6.99 for an entire bottle of wine is right in my sweet spot :)

So why do we love this wine so much?

The Comte Tolosan region is a defined area (the wine trade calls them IGPs or Géographique Protégée) that encompasses famed wine regions: Jurancon, Cahors and Armagnac, but the wines so named are either blends of the better-known areas or blends that include wines from outside those spots though still in Southwest France. Typically, the white wines are based upon neutral grapes like Ugni Blanc, Colombard, and Folle Blanche, or more aromatic grapes like Petit Manseng or Gros Manseng. While few of these grapes have distinctive personalities, if you put them into a harmonious blend (like we have here), they can be really charming and waaaaaaaaaay over deliver for the price point.

So leave work a little early today, grab a bottle, and start the "weekend" right. You've earned it!

This wine has only gone on sale twice before at the $9.99 price point during our last 15 years in business. Both times were two of the most insane sales periods in our history. Like we literally could not keep the wine on the shelf. It was chaos. Controlled chaos, but chaos nonetheless.

I get it. Snowvale at $9.99 represents some pretty unreal value. I even saw someone selling this wine for $31 just last week! (Picture below)

Heck, last time we got this deal I even went in for two cases. It just works. Tuesday night spaghetti? Boom. Wednesday night burgers. Done. Saturday night Netflix. But of course.

So after much back and forth with the fine people at Foley Family Wines over the last two months, we have finally been able to secure 437 cases at this price.

Seems like a lot? If I assume the average Snowvale lover will buy 6 bottles, that means only 124 customers per store are going to be able to get their six bottles.

I wish we had more, but we don't look gift horses in the mouth over here :)

So let's get to it! Get while the gettin' is good!

Happy Tuesday!

Rosé Sale!



Sale Runs Wednesday March 3rd - Sunday March 7th 2021 (at 7pm)*

Honestly, I checked the weather on my phone this morning and saw all this sunshine and said "We're putting rosé on sale this week..."

I'm ready for spring. I'm ready for a lot less rain. I'm ready for swimming pools. I'm ready for more rosé.

So grab yo' self a few bottles, enjoy it outdoors, and I'll see you poolside asap!

SAVE 50%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

If you stick around the wine business long enough, you’ll have seen it all. Where once wine coolers were cooler than Liebfraumilch, now hard seltzer is hot (served cold). White Zin was once de rigeur, though it was never French; it was from the good ol’ US of A. But then that became too sweet and the category died. Or seemed to. Because then rosé rose up like a zombie eager for fresh meat, though the current iteration of the pink stuff is more often French than not. Provence is the epicenter of it and the French have figured out how we like it: dry, pale pink, light and refreshing.

This 2019 rosé from Puech-Haut (a blend of grenache and cinsault) is everything we love about dry rosé. The color, the floral and intense aromatics and the crisp flavors all scream porch pounder.



2019 Le Cabas Rosé

SALE Price: $7.99 (net)
SAVE 47%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Grenache is a remarkable grape with the ability to generate rich, dark and powerful wine when the crop yields are modest, but just as equally it can make vast quantities of pleasant wine, with less color but vibrantly fruity aromas. As a basis for rosé, it’s very nearly perfect, and it’s been the grape of choice for southern French rosés for a century or more. A touch of texture, some brief gratings of black peppercorns and lots of raspberries and strawberries.



2019 Sun Summer Pink
Release Price: $25.00
SALE Price: $12.99 (net)
SAVE 48%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Truth be told, Grenache makes a reasonably tasty rosé but it’s never complete without some Cinsault. Why? Cinsault is floral, with red cherries and plums as the through line between the two grapes. Syrah brings the strawberries and raspberries, but Cinsault gives to the blend a cranberry finish.

This wine rocked our world when we first tasted it all the way back in January (which might as well have been 15 years ago), and we have had to wait until now for it to arrive...and man was it worth the wait.

Chilean Sauvignon Blanc is a really new thing; in fact, it’s new that it’s even becoming a thing. But it dates back to 1985 when the Casablanca Valley was “discovered”, at least for wine. Chardonnay was the initial push (hey, there’s money in them thar wines), and while the learning curve has been only gradually headed upward, those wines continue to improve. Sauvignon Blanc was considered too, but the early efforts were more like a watered-down New Zealand Sauvignon than anything identifiably Chilean. But that’s changing too. These wines are gaining some intensity and much like their New Zealand counterparts, these are floral and friendly.

The other awesome thing? The price is definitely right. I told you guys before that I need more $9.99 wine in my life...well, awesome $7.99 wine is even better :)

We hope you and your family are safe and healthy, and that you enjoy this beautiful Friday.

The biggest white wine arrival since we opened...

2019 Solanilla Verdejo



Release Price: $42.00

One of the co-owners of Bodegas Morca (which is the new sister winery to Bodegas El Nido, but that is for another day), approached us in the fall of 2019 about some extremely high end Verdejo that he was making.
 
It was aged in new Taransaud barrels (remember the T5?) for 8 months, and he said it was a dead ringer for high end California Chardonnay. Price was 35 euros ($42USD)
 
I mean sure, we decided to try it - and the wine really was unbelievable - and it hits all the finer points of high end Chardonnay, without the overbearing weight. Verdejo as a layered texture that is all its own, and this gem was leaving Rombauer, Sonoma Cutrer, Mer Soleil etc. in the dust. Only hiccup, and we explained this to them, was that nobody is buying $50 Verdejo in the US. Full stop. It’s just not happening. (If it is we sure don't know about it).
 
I guess they came prepared for that response, because they said that if we packed it in another label (not the one selling for 35 euro) and committed to a minimum of 400 cases, they could get it to us where we could retail it for $24.99...

We ordered 1,000 cases on the spot.
 
Their team came up with maybe one of the best labels I have seen in awhile (picture above) and the wine finally, after what seems like an eternity of waiting, rolled into our stores yesterday morning.

I have an internal bet that all 1,000 sell in the first 8 weeks. I think it’s that good. I just bought a case, and we sold 82 six packs yesterday before we even got this newsletter out.

For what it is worth, I usually don’t get too fired up about white wine for whatever reason (I really like high end sweet Riesling for instance, and that is a lonely island :), but this wine has me as excited as I have ever been. Spain once again proving that they can bring the thunder on the quality / value scale.
