Ahhhh, Chappellet Mountain Cuvée...at the lowest price in the US. Santa Claus has delivered a little early this year!

Chappellet Mountain Cuvée has long been one of our favorite wines, and any time we can get it down to near $25 there is an absolute feeding frenzy.

Why, do you ask?

Because it functions well above its price class. But maybe most importantly, because people just love the wine. They do. There are a million other wines out there at this price point, but this wine always makes people happy. And that’s a pretty cool thing.

It probably helps that the blend has a little something for everyone - 44% Cabernet Sauvignon,
33% Merlot, 10% Malbec, 8% Petit Verdot, 5% Cabernet Franc.

So let's get to it people. It's the last Saturday before Christmas - that means you're gonna need some wine by the end of the day!

HOLIDAY HOURS BELOW -

Are we really basically one week away from Christmas? Yowsa!

For me, one of the wine highlights of 2021 was finally getting the opportunity to present Il Fauno to you at below $25. We have been working to make this happen for years, and the stars finally aligned for us this fall.

Why do we think Il Fauno is the super tuscan to end all super tuscans?

Is it that good? The answer is undeniably - yes.

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

So pop a bottle tonight on this wonderful holiday weekend. Celebrate yourself, celebrate your family, celebrate your friends and celebrate all we have to be thankful for!

TGIF!

SAVE 35%




Lowest Online Prices in the USA!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

HOLIDAY HOURS BELOW -

In a world of ever increasing prices, it's nice to know that some things never change. Case in point, this absolutely epic Rhone offering from Bernard Chamfort. It hit its stride this time last year, and it hasn't looked back since. 

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 Plan (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?

Pine Ridge Napa Cabernet is the gift that keeps on giving in 2021.
 
They closed out their 2017 to us back in February and based on the success of that offering, they gave us a chance at 150 six packs of their 2018 at the same low price. We blew through that in 4 days, and I am pleased to report that they have returned to the well, and wanted to move some juice for the Holidays!
 
We started with 1,344 bottles right before Thanksgiving and now that we are finally able to get a newsletter out, we sadly only have 318 bottles left at this price 😢
 
As we have mentioned before, 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!

Back on December 6th we got some not so great news about maybe THE breakout white wine star in 2021 for us. The e-mail read:

"I just heard from our supplier and Tatiana Guillot will not be making Macon Villages for 2021 the harvest being so small. I am sorry for the inconvenience but Loire and Burgundy will be very complicated this year. Tatiana Guillot yields were down 47% on the year."

So the 187 cases we have of this epic white Burgundy (100% Chardonnay) are all we will be getting until 2023 👀

If you love this wine as much as I do - you have been warned!

What have we told you about this gem?

The Guillot Family has been making Chardonnay in Burgundy for generations, but this is the first offering we have ever seen from them that we could sell below $15.00.

Oh, and this is not just your regular ol' Mâcon...

Macon Villages was once a bigger deal, or at least it was once a wine that absolutely every restaurant had to pour by the glass. Some of the biggest names in the business started their careers in this airy, Chardonnay-laden territory (you know, like Georges Duboeuf, for one).

In the climate change era, Macon seems to be morphing from light and slightly generic to richer and even slightly buttery. But only slightly. Remember that Chardonnay in France is almost always more about the minerals than the butter; Macon is clean and crisp and tangy. Yet, it is increasingly weighty.

So get while the gettin' is good! Happy Monday everyone!

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 2021? We don't think so... When we started this company over 15 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 10th year in a row, we are going to let YOU do the talking. We have taken your 20 favorite wines at winestore. for 2021 - 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 20. You know, it's all very scientific and stuff :)

Why 20 wines? Why not! 

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!



2019 Cape Charles Cabernet
Release Price: $135.00
SALE Price: $24.99 (net)
SAVE 81%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

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.

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.

SALE Price: $10.99 (net)
SAVE 39%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Cabardès has not always been a favored site but its intense limestone soils are beginning to consistently offer Burgundy-like nerve. It’s tasty wine, but maybe the best part of the story is that Cabardès is named for the 13th Century Lords of Cabaret – seriously. Picture Joel Grey or Alan Cumming astride white stallions, swords a-glinter in the sunlight, horses prancing. Okay, you just can’t un-see that image, can you? Drink this incredibly tasty number and try to forget we said this.

Recently Almansa has been considered to be hot for high quality wines, but a century ago Almansa produced high quality wines, albeit at that time they were sweet ones. They used Alicante Bouschet, but today they call it Garnacha Tintorera, they nixed the sweet, and they mix it with 30% Monastrell to make this wickedly powerful red wine.



2019 Solanilla

SALE Price: $19.99 (net) per bottle

Verdejo can have a layered texture all its own, and this dead ringer for high end California Chardonnay proves that Spain is the current global King of insane quality for extreme value.

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.

After killing it with the AVERÆN project in Oregon, the Banshee gang is hard at work again in Washington. They’ve grabbed some vineyards in Walla Walla Valley and we’re smart enough to snag some of their early efforts. There’s not a lot of Sauvignon Blanc grown in these spots, but what is there produces wines like this one: poised, more bright melon and citrus - just the way it should be.

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.

The vast vineyards of France’s Languedoc hold many well-known grapes, including Chardonnay that is friendly and accessible.

Napa Valley Cabernet on Deal? It's a Christmas Miracle!

HOLIDAY HOURS BELOW -

As with everything in the world right now, Napa Valley Cabernet is in short supply. While it is caused by mother nature, and not supply chain gridlock, the Napa Valley Cab supply problem is as bad as we have ever seen it. Many producers are starting to tell us they are running out of product, and their next release is not until September of 2023 👀

That makes opportunities like this all the more exciting for us. When we see them, we jump at the opportunity!

You may recall the Silenus flagship wine we offered you a few weeks back. It was a $50 bombshell full of fruit that used to make up the base component for Silver Oak.

Well, they also make an entry level Cabernet called Tyros - and it is absolutely delicious as well!

Silenus has quite the history in Napa. The estate used to be known as Newlan Vineyards. Bruce Newland was a rocket scientist from San Jose who liked to vacation in Napa Valley, so he decided to start a winery (why not!). He chose this southern portion of Napa Valley because it enjoys a longer growing season, earlier bud break and optimal ripeness. But Newlan had to change hands in 2008 and so Silenus rose up, starting on a track that has culminated in being one of the first Napa Green properties (the sustainability program from Napa Valley Vintners) to develop a Carbon Farm Plan for the vineyards to become Carbon Neutral, regenerative farming that is the gold standard in sustainability and healthy farming. While other types of farming (organic or biodynamic) may be healthy for the grapes, they do not address the use of fossil fuels or the work required of vineyard workers. Owner and President Scott Meadows came aboard when it was Newlan but now he, his wife Yuko and his two daughters live, garden and create wine there.


So let's enjoy this Napa Valley deal while we can! You guys know what to do!

TGIF!

The deal train continues to roll into December, and this is one of my favorites!

Long time Central Coast winemaker Gregory Ahn knows where the good stuff is, and he has sourced grapes from three ranches across coastal Central California, from Santa Barbara to Arroyo Seco to Monterey, from Grenache (61%), Syrah (36%) and Mourvedre (3%). Each of those valleys or valley-defined areas, share something in common, whether we’re thinking about Santa Barbara or Monterey: the valleys run east and west, instead of north and south (think Napa; think Sonoma, think Bordeaux; think many wine valleys). That makes it more Pacific influenced, colder, certainly, more dramatically colder in the afternoons. That lengthens the growing season and improves intensity and balance. Or so some of us believe.

This particular bottling was actually founded by the iconic Joseph Phelp's winery (hence the name) and was sold to it's current ownership group along with the vineyards back in 2008 (remember what was going on then :)

As far as we can tell the quality level has not skipped a beat, as this 2018 is an absolute show stopper.


If you've got someone in your gift universe who loves to google the bottle of wine you bought them to see how nice it is - this is the one for them! They will think you paid $50 and the quality is sure to impress. Client gifts, anyone? 😁

Happy Thursday!

Our "Go To" Holiday Sparkler!

11.30.2021

Raffaello Rosé Prosecco

Release Price: $15.00
winestore. Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 33%




Lowest Online Price in the US!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available!*


Our "go to" sparkler for anything and everything Holiday this year (including last week at Thanksgiving), is Raffaello Rosé Prosecco. 

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 Raffaello. What's not to love about this party wine?

It's organic - impress your friends!
It's crisp - easy drinking is the way to go!
It's dry - let's leave it at that...
The price is right - $9.99 per bottle. That is not a typo.

It literally is firing on all cylinders. 

How did this wine land at our doorstep? 

You may not have heard the news last year (HERE), but the governing body of all things Prosecco decided that the two hottest wine trends in the global wine trade were about to be married - Prosecco and Rosé.

Many publications came out with their suggestions (like the WSJ, HERE), but we saw absolutely zero rosé Prosecco being offered under $10. Maybe we should have expected that given the expected demand, but we needed to look harder.

Enter Raphael dal Bo.

So 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.

We've been selling his Raffaello Prosecco for the last three years, and it continues to absolutely dominate the value sparkling / Prosecco category. He contacted us and told us that he had a Rosé Prosecco in the works, and would we be interested in trying it.

Of course we would. And the wine was insane.

Now with the Holidays in full swing, you all are still currently the only people in the United States, and some of the first people in the world, to taste this tasty treat! 

Let's get to it!

As the impact of the 2020 wildfires in Napa continue to be seen in the marketplace, Napa Cabernet from top flight producers for less than $50 is going to be very difficult to find through 2022.
 
That is why when we find deals like this, we buy as much as we can get our hands on. Unfortunately with Silenus, that is not a lot of wine.
 
Also - while you may not know the name Silenus - the vines were planted in 1968 and the grapes for a long time were used as the base component for Silver Oak Napa.
 
The estate used to be known as Newlan Vineyards. Bruce Newland was a rocket scientist from San Jose who liked to vacation in Napa Valley, so he decided to start a winery (why not!). He chose this southern portion of Napa Valley because it enjoys a longer growing season, earlier bud break and optimal ripeness. But Newlan had to change hands in 2008 and so Silenus rose up, starting on a track that has culminated in being one of the first Napa Green properties (the sustainability program from Napa Valley Vintners) to develop a Carbon Farm Plan for the vineyards to become Carbon Neutral, regenerative farming that is the gold standard in sustainability and healthy farming. While other types of farming (organic or biodynamic) may be healthy for the grapes, they do not address the use of fossil fuels or the work required of vineyard workers. Owner and President Scott Meadows came aboard when it was Newlan but now he, his wife Yuko and his two daughters live, garden and create wine there.
 
The quality level is as good as you’ll see in Napa - and for less than $50 per bottle this stuff is an absolute dream.

Not much available...you know what to do!


Reminder - we are open at 9am today and tomorrow!

I love Thanksgiving. I love wine. I also love cranberry sauce. Specifically the Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce that comes in that can (You know, this stuff). I don't know if it is healthy (I don't think it is), and it looks a little strange when it pops out of the can, but for me there is nothing better than dropping some of that on your Thanksgiving plate at the end of building it.

So when it comes to pairing Turkey Day wines, I like wines with a hint of cranberry to compliment my plate - and Castelet hits that mark for me.

What's the deal?

We like the Vellas family; we buy a lot of their wines. Why? Because they have 100s of acres of vines at their disposal in southern France? Yes, true. Is it because they consistently offer us wines that reflect their place (places like Pic-Saint-Loup and Lunel, each an area of limestone soils and bright, reflective Mediterranean sun)? Sure, that too. But, actually, it’s because value in French wine can be hard to find and the Vellas family just keeps bringing it to us. Rich, expansive Syrah for this kind of money? Yeah, yeah, that’s why.

While we love most of the value wines from Vellas, this is by far the best we have ever tried.

As an added bonus for sharing with family, I'm also pumped with the etched glass on this wine and how the packagings scream $50 wine. (I'm into that kind of stuff :)

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! We look forward to serving you today.

Maybe the best wine I had in a restaurant this year, and now a staple in my regular lineup, is Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino.

Il Poggione is one of those foundational estates within one of the world’s most important wine areas. For one, it was one of the first wineries to market Brunello di Montalcino, all the way back in the early 1900s, and one of the founding members of the Brunello di Montalcino Consortium. But, more importantly, they have produced delightful and benchmark setting wines ever since. While many Brunelli are over-oaked and charmless, Il Poggione’s are not; they are excellent. Rosso di Montalcino, meanwhile, is never charmless or over-oaked. Virtually everyone’s Rosso di Montalcino is delicious. So now imagine how lovely Il Poggione’s Rosso is when they are among the best at making the more expensive wine.

Impress your family this week with this one!

Reminder - we are open at 9am Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week!

Thanksgiving Wine Specials - Our Biggest Turkey Day Sale EVER!

11.16.2021

Thanksgiving Wine Deals!!

http://www.wired.com/geekmom/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/a-charlie-brown-thanksgiving-original1.jpg

SALE runs Tuesday November 16th - Sunday November 21st, 2021

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

*All wines posted at the lowest online price in the US!*

Is it really almost Thanksgiving?!?! 

That means it is time for our annual Thanksgiving Wine Sale!

This is, without question, the largest Holiday sale we have ever run (with some of the steepest discounts), and given that we decided to extend this annual sale an extra day just to make sure everyone can get in on the action.

In a world where we already work hard to guarantee you the absolute lowest prices, we are pulling out all the stops!! I mean, I am sorry but wines like Highland Falls for $9.99 boggles the mind in terms of the quality to price ratio.

It's been a long slog through the last 18 months, and it doesn't matter when or how you drink it - but we're 99% sure you're gonna need some vino over the next couple of weeks :)

All prices are good through Sunday, November 21st! (no, they are not good on the 22nd)

It should also be noted that as always, there are going to be some insane "in store only" specials rolling.



2019 Highland Falls Proprietary Red
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 50%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

"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.



2019 Sonoma Cutrer Russian River Ranches Chardonnay
Winery Price: $28.00
SALE PRICE: $16.98 (net) per bottle
SAVE 39%
Lowest Online Price in the USA!


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...




2019 Benières Chardonnay
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)

SAVE 50%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

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!



2020 Escorlada
Release Price: $30.00
SALE Price: $17.99 (net) per bottle
SAVE 40%
Lowest Online Price in the USA!


Spanish wine is a bargain, right? It’s been that way for decades, though it’s only been in the last ten or fifteen years that the wider world has dropped some in their gullets and said, wait, this costs how much? Certainly, less than it should. It doesn't take geniuses to notice it, so we’re not making any claims to our own brilliance. In the case of this Garnacha Tintorera, we’re pretty sure we’ve found what may be the best sub $20 wine we have ever tasted. Spain has done it again!



2019 Cape Charles Sauvignon Blanc
Release Price: $25.00
SALE Price: $12.99 (net)
SAVE 48%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

After killing it with the AVERÆN project in Oregon, the Banshee gang is hard at work again in Washington. They’ve grabbed some vineyards in Walla Walla Valley and we’re smart enough to snag some of their early efforts. There’s not a lot of Sauvignon Blanc grown in these spots, but what is there produces wines like this one: poised, more bright melon and citrus - just the way it should be.




2019 Waccamaw Proprietary Red
Release Price: $25.00
SALE Price: $12.99 (net)
SAVE 48%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Put together a bunch of passionate kids (some with backgrounds selling wines for legends such as Eric Solomon and Martine Saunier) deeply immersed in the California biz and you can find some pretty tasty wines. That's what they did and that's what we have here.



2020 Larme en Rose
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
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.



2019 Cary Potet Bourgogne
Release Price: $30.00
SALE Price: $17.99 (net)
SAVE 40%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Though this domaine’s claim to fame is Montagny, they have traditionally produced Pinot Noir as well, and the new owners have applied their centuries’ long experience to craft delicate, gentle red Burgundy. They are organic, hand-harvested and the wine sees mostly used oak with long settling in tanks to preserve those delicacies: roses, strawberries, bing cherries and mushrooms.




2020 SWIMBAD Rosé
Release Price: $15.00
winestore. Price: $8.99 (net)
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.




2019 P/N Pinot Noir
Release Price: $25.00
SALE Price: $12.99 (net)
SAVE 48%

Lowest Online Price in the US!

Put together a bunch of passionate kids (some with backgrounds selling wines for legends such as Eric Solomon and Martine Saunier) deeply immersed in the California biz and you can find some pretty tasty wines. That's what they did and that's what we have here.




2019 Cary Potet Montagny "Les Bassets"
Release Price: $30.00
SALE Price: $17.99 (net) per bottle
SAVE 40%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Cary Potet is an ideal example of hidden Burgundy; the label disappeared after being imported by a small producer for years. Some importers were adept scroungers of the French retail shelves and years later they spotted the Cary Potet label. These folks, the Desfontaine family, have been making wine for 12 generations and their family motto is ‘Ex Nihilo Nihil’: nothing comes from nothing. But from hard work, delicious wine can be coaxed from the old stones.




2019 Rocoiseau Viognier
Release Price: $12.99
SALE Price: $7.99 (net)
SAVE 38%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

More than a half century ago Viognier was forgotten; near extinct. In the 1980s things blew up, with acreages quintupling. There were a few successes, but most just didn't do justice to the grape. Winegrowers eventually found the ideal conditions, while the Viogniers of the 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




2019 Willowlake Pinot Noir
Release Price: $39.99
winestore. Price: $24.99
SALE Price: $19.99 (net)
SAVE 50%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Finally! A wine that rivals Belle Glos at a much friendlier price point. Pinot lovers unite!



2019 Clos Delfines
Release Price: $18.00
SALE Price: $10.99 (net)
SAVE 39%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

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



2019 Kingstree Cabernet
Release Price: $25.00
SALE Price: $12.99 (net)
SAVE 48%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

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.



2019 Tatiana Guillot Chardonnay (Macon Villages)
Release Price: $25.00
SALE Price: $12.99 (net)
SAVE 48%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

In the climate change era, Macon seems to be morphing from light and slightly generic to richer and even slightly buttery. But only slightly. Remember that Chardonnay in France is almost always more about the minerals than the butter; Macon is clean and crisp and tangy. Yet, it is increasingly weighty.

That's what you get here, and it's really something...we’re not quite to California richness yet, but who knows?




2019 Double Ripasse GSM
Release Price: $35.00
SALE Price: $19.99 (net) per bottle
SAVE 43%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre are happy bedfellows from anywhere, and the Vellas family has sites throughout Mediterranean France that allow balance as well as intensity to be achieved.

 


2019 Benieres Pinot Noir
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 50%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Fresh and fruity Pinot Noir from the Pays d'Oc, a region warm enough and varied enough to allow even persnickety Pinot Noir to find its happy place.



2019 Kingstree Proprietary Red
Release Price: $45.00
SALE Price: $19.99 (net)
SAVE 56%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

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!




2019 Orlaida Red Blend
Release Price: $25.00
SALE Price: $12.99 (net) per bottle
SAVE 48%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

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 Garnacha 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.



2019 Bodegas Lo Nuevo "Corasado"
Release Price: $25.00
SALE Price: $12.99 (net)
SAVE 48%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Bodegas Lo Nuevo has unquestionably modernized their winery; it’s practically a technical marvel now. But what makes these wines special is the place, Jumilla, with its intense weather. It’s tough ground for most grapes, but Monastrell (the French, who borrowed it from Spain, call it Mourvedre) and Cariñena (once again, a borrowed grape dubbed Carignan by the French) can thrive here.



2019 Solanilla
Release Price: $42.00
SALE Price: $19.99 (net) per bottle
SAVE 52%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Verdejo can have a layered texture all its own, and this dead ringer for high end California Chardonnay proves that Spain is the current global King of insane quality for extreme value.

Comprised of 45% Cabernet, 32% Zinfandel, and 23% Syrah with power to spare, The Vault has a striking similarity to cult classic "The Prisoner". I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this is the closest thing yet we have found to the Prisoner - and trust us, we have been looking HARD!

At $24.99 this surely is not a wine for Taco Tuesday (but I mean, if Tuesday really goes off the rails anything can happen!), but it surely fits our profile for a nice Friday night sipper. I mean, we have to drink nice stuff on the weekend, right?

We will have it on the machine at all eight stores to try this weekend, just in case you think we're trying to pull a fast one on you guys. But I'm pretty confident you all will reach the same conclusion that we did!

So let us keep it short and sweet today. TGIF!

One of the hottest deals we have run the last two years is the Ken Wright Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. It literally is walking itself out the door, and for good reason...

What is it about the wine that makes it so good?

Lovers of Oregon Pinot Noir should well know Ken Wright’s name – his single vineyard bottlings are among the most sought-after American Pinot Noirs. He trained at important Pinot Noir locations in California (Talbott, Ventana, and Chalone) before launching Panther Creek Cellars (Go Panthers?!) in 1986.

As important as those early wines were in establishing his reputation and that of the Willamette, his work today is light years ahead of those wines in both character and longevity. The Willamette bottling is, in some ways, the culmination of all that he has learned about Oregon viticulture. As the author of the applications for one of the critical Willamette sub-regions (Yamhill-Carlton), it’s his experience and understanding that makes the difference.


Sooooooooo - If you love Oregon Pinot Noir as much as I do, this is a can't miss! It wasn't so long ago that we sold this wine for $29.99!

Last November this week Pfizer announced their vaccine had a 90% efficacy rate, and we felt like that was some good news that everyone needed. Now, 12 months later, it seems we finally are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.

So, again this year, we are going to keep the positive vibes flowing by putting our two best selling wines, in terms of overall volume, on sale! Now, when I say best selling, I'm not talking about these wines have sold a few more bottles than third and fourth place. Snowvale and Carmita are first and second - and then there are thousands of bottles of difference before you even get to third place. It's not even close. 

So let's keep rolling with positive vibes only this week - and drink some awesome (yet inexpensive) wine while we are at it!

Happy Tuesday y'all!

Malbec from the Pays D'Oc? That's a pass, right?

That's what we thought, but we really loved the package and the price on this wine, so we decided to give it a try. 

Folks, we are really glad that we did...

Dare we say it, this may be the best sub $15 Malbec that you are going to try this year. Maybe the best one next year too. It's that good.

Rich, fully extracted, easy drinking and delicious...it's everything the doctor ordered for a Friday night when it's gonna get down to 34 degrees (how is this year almost already over?!?!?!)

So grab yourself a bottle to stay warm this weekend, and as always THANK YOU for your business. It is truly a pleasure and an honor to have the opportunity to serve you. We do not take it for granted.

TGIF!

The First Big Hit of the Holiday Season?

11.03.2021

2019 Montassin Bordeaux

Release Price: $25.00 
winestore. Price: $12.99 (net)
SAVE 48%




*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

We tasted this wine back in June and ordered it right away. Thanks to whatever is going on in the world of overseas shipping, the wine finally arrived last week!

A follow up taste test upon arrival may have, in my humble opinion, moved this wine to the front of blockbuster hits this holiday season.

What is going on?

Well, looking back on our 15 years of serving you, we have never carried much Bordeaux (it just gets too expensive). In addition, I can't think of any offer we have made for a Bordeaux less than $25. Every time we taste them, they taste...well...they tend to taste cheap. Nobody wants to deal with that...

Enter Montassin...

- It's a traditional Bordeaux blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Petite Verdot and Cabernet Franc
- It comes in awesome six pack wood boxes
- The wine comes with a deep, rich color but seems to focus more on elegance over power, all while losing none of the fruit character of traditional Bordeaux wine.
- It is incredibly delicious and clocks in at a very friendly 13.5% alc.


So we have a wine for 12 bucks that is packed in 6 pack wood cases from Bordeaux that brings the thunder in terms of quality. Now do you see why I think this thing is going to go bonkers this Holiday Season?

We probably didn't buy enough, and with all the shipping issues going on in the world. What showed up is all that there will be for a good bit. But who cares, right?

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

Let's do this!

2017 Mas De Corasado



Release Price: $75.00
SALE Price: $29.99 (net)
SAVE 60%




Lowest Online Price in the USA!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

Is it really already November?

We're gonna start the two craziest months of the year with one of the craziest deals we have been able to offer this year!

The family behind Bodegas Lo Nuevo allowed us to buy their remaining inventory on the 2017 Mas De Corasado (a Cabernet blend that may be one of my fave wines in the store) at a price we could not pass up. The only downside? There are only 708 bottles available (118 six packs).

That is only 88 bottles per store 😳

Mas de Corasado 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.

Inexpensive it is not, but at $29.99 this is kinda crazy value...and, well, I'm just gonna start the Holiday season right and drink some nice wine. 

Let's get to it!

2016 Alcance Bravura

SAVE 40%

I'll be honest, this is one of the best $15 deals we will run this year.

It's the top Bordeaux blend from Alcance that started out as a $50 offering back in the 2013 vintage, moved down into the mid to high $20's and after the 2016 vintage it will be discontinued at the winery. We swooped in and now you get some seriously primo wine for only $14.99.

Chile has been attracting interest from the French wine world for a century and a half and, to be a bit too candid, it hasn’t always gone well. The French tended to think that their winemaking methods were perfect and only needed to be applied to Chilean vineyards and greatness would ensue. It didn’t work out like that and they were slow to notice and change.

Baron Phillippe de Rothschild got together with Concha y Toro and created Almaviva, so there were some great Franco-Chilean projects. And, of course, the Chileans on their own were figuring it out, but others were adapting as well and a lot of those transplants were from the good ol’ US of A. Famously Robert Mondavi helped create Seña and Cali winemakers like Randy Ullom (of Kendall Jackson) headed there too. His work at Alcance has been exemplary, and this wine is a prime example of the quality they have been producing.

This is one of those deals that sadly will be one time only. But gee wiz, we are going to enjoy as much as we can for as long as we can!!
