In 1991, Sarah and Sparky Marquis finished their winemaking studies with $1,000 and dreams of their own business. They started as winemakers for Sarah’s parents in McLaren Vale. Then in 2006 they started their own brand, Mollydooker (Aussie slang for a “left hander’), and lovers of powerhouse wines like The Wine Advocate continue to call their wines ‘Best Value Wine in the World’. These are not subtle wines, but then isn’t that what made Australian wine famous in the first place? 

Blue Eyed Boy is one of their 100% Shiraz wines and people seem to continue to love this wine after all these years. 13,000+ reviews on Vivino is pretty stellar, especially with comments like: "Trust me, this is an investment into your future happiness!"

Now that is a review we can get behind! So let's cheers to your future happiness!

Happy Wednesday!

Austin Hope, makers of the eponymous Austin Hope line of wines, as well as Treana, Liberty School, Quest, and a few others, released last year 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!

You guys know what to do! Let's get to it!

Maybe one of my favorite finds over the last 12 months has been the 2017 Copain "Les Voisins" Syrah.

I would love to blind taste anyone on this wine and ask them what they think it is. Some people don't drink Syrah, or say they only like Cab or Pinot etc. But I think anyone who tasted this completely blind, not knowing a thing about it, would really fall in love with it.

Why? Because it’s clean and redolent with fresh, well-preserved fruits of red and black cherries, along with the spices of new barrels (cinnamon, pepper, allspice and toast).

But will the taster consider it great or at least top-flight? Well, what separates “commercial” wines from the wines that we profess to find greatness in? There should be expressions of depth, length and complexity in wines that approach greatness and I would argue that this wine embodies all that. Copain, like other estates that Jackson Family Estates has purchased (this one, in 2016) and now runs, was a star before it was purchased and it remains so today.

So if you're looking to step a little outside of your normal routine and find some greatness in some wine, I would look no further than this wine!

We'll get it up on the tasting machine at all 8 stores, just in case you don't believe us :)

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. Case in point, this prosecco. Our container was set to arrive November 18th. Then December 10th. Then December 20th. Then Jan 4th. Then January 8th........

You get the idea.

I am happy to report that Raffaello Prosecco, easily the best $10 sparkling wine we have ever tasted, has finally come back in stock!

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.


So, literally, our ship has finally come in! Let's get to it!

You might know the Wagner Family from their Emmolo label: you know, elegant Sauvignon Blanc. Not ringing any bells for you?

Okay, how about their Red Schooner brand from Argentina? No?

Okay, then there’s Bonanza California Cabernet; you must have heard of that one. Right?

Oh, well, there’s also CAYMUS. That’s theirs too...

So maybe the Wagners know a little somethin’ somethin’ about winemaking. The Sea Sun winery focuses upon Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, strictly from coastal sites. Pretty much where Chardonnay and Pinot Noir prosper, much like the Wagners have.

So today we're bringing you Sea Sun Pinot Noir, at one of the lowest online prices in the US ($1 from being the lowest in the US) and the lowest price in North Carolina. Because that's how we roll...

Let's get to it people!

One of the more popular deals we offered last fall was Penfolds Max's Shiraz for $14.99. So popular that you gobbled it up so it didn't even make it to Thanksgiving 👀

I am happy to report that the extremely slow container vessel from Australia has finally arrived, and the wine is back in stock!!

So we are back in business being able to offer you this top wine from one of the most iconic names in all of wine at the lowest price in the US!

Who is Max?

Max Shubert, the irascible but brilliant creator of Penfold’s Grange Hermitage, the most famous wine of the Southern Hemipshere. In the 1950s Australia just drank sweet, fortified wines (don’t chortle, Americans did the same back then). Max created a wine that reminded him of great Bordeaux and his bosses responded by telling him, if he ever did it again, they would fire him.

But Max being Max, he kept making Grange on the sly and then, though he never really owned up to it, he sent some bottles of Grange to an important blind wine tasting in England and it won. His bosses wisely chose not to terminate him after all. I met Max a few decades later and he was still irascible but that’s another story.

Meanwhile, you should drink this Shiraz named for him; it’s far friendlier than he was. 

Let's get to it people! Happy Tuesday!

You may have heard of Charlotte wine importer Eric Solomon. He is straight up crushing the Spanish and French wine market here in the good 'ole US of A. Part of the reason for his success? Value wine...and there is no stronger value play than Castano Monastrell.

Castaño makes mind-boggling wines, but you probably don't believe that, do you? “Amazing” isn’t good enough for you, is it? “Remarkable” just doesn't cut it anymore. Well, stop your cynicism and hang with me for a second. This is tasty, textured red wine that’s as revolutionary as any value wine out in the marketplace right now. I recommend them; let’s just put it that way.


Is this wine a great Tuesday night drinker with Totino's pizza? Yes. Great for drinking while watching the Season Finale of Yellowstone? Absolutely. Should you give this wine to your boss as a gift? No.

Happy Thursday y'all! Let's get to it!

Soooooooooo...we were trying to send some positive vibes out into the universe with some fun year end sales, and then we held our annual New Years Day sale and we thought things were going to start off on the right foot.

Fast forward to today, and it kinda feels like 2022 already has gone a bit off the rails (like I feel like we've seen this movie before?) - so we're just going to go ahead and do a hard reset real quick. Let's just start over.

So we are going to put our #9 selling wine of 2021 on sale through Sunday, and put it tied for the lowest price we have ever offered! The "positive vibes only" train is ready to leave the station once again, and we want you to get on board :)

So yes, today you have:
- Only 3rd time we have ever offered this price on Waccamaw Proprietary Red in 8 years of carrying it
- The wine for $9.99 is a silly good value
- It is a rich, full bodied Cabernet blend

Maybe one of my favorite deals of 2021 is winding down to start 2022. Jackson Family wines informed us yesterday that our deal on Maggy Hawk Jory Hills Pinot Noir has ended and what we have in stock is all we will be getting at this price!

The Jackson Family has brought us some of the best deals over the years. Their scale allows them to push the limits of discounting when they want to grab market share, and we are all for it! Their scale has also allowed them to cultivate a spare no expense winemaking operation, churning out some of the best wines on the West Coast.

 
Case in point, Maggy Hawk. The Jackson Family Collection took one of their top winemaking talents (Sarah Wuethrich), turned her loose on some of their top land holdings...and the result is some of the most exciting California and Oregon Pinot Noir you can buy.
 
$39.99 for this wine has never been offered before, and from what it sounds like I'm not sure Jackson Family will be offering it again anytime soon.

So here you go. One last time, 2017 Maggy Hawk Jory Hills Pinot Noir. $39.99.

Let's go!

SALE Price Available TODAY ONLY - January 1st, 2022

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

Even though our stores are closed today, each New Year's Day we do a one day sale on our website to ring in the new year - and the catch is the wine has to be offered at our lowest price EVER. That's right...one time only, to kick of the new year right, lowest price we will ever offer.

So to say goodbye to 2021 and hello to hopefully a wonderful 2022, we are offering one of our favorites for an absolutely silly price of $9.99 (I'm getting fired up just writing this!)

Apparently I am not the only one that loves Orlaida, as the Vivino iPhone App I use says it is in the top 6% of all wines in the world (HERE), and that the current 2019 vintage rates better than any other vintage...so maybe I am onto something :)

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

 



Why do we love it?

Bodegas Lo Nuevo's success has allowed them to spread their wings to other prestigious regions. Their Montsant projects have brought them perhaps even more fame than in Jumilla. Orlaida could become a benchmark for the potential of Montsant. The vineyards for their 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.

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

So here we go - one day only!

Happy New Year!

Thank you!



December 31st, 2021

It has become a tradition here that we take a moment at the end of each year just to say THANK YOU...and in a year like 2021 we cannot thank you enough. Honestly, it's been a tough last two years, right?

As we approach our 16th Birthday (is that even possible?!?), we want to just reiterate how truly appreciative we are of you spending your hard earned dollars with us over the last 12 months and we hope to continue to earn your business as we enter 2022. We are humbled by the opportunity to serve each and every one of you, and we don't take it for granted.

We are always striving to get better, so if you have any suggestions on how we can improve please write to us HERE, and let us know the one or two things you think we really need to add to our service offerings, to change, to overhaul - anything at all (heck, even if you just have some positive feedback).

We hope to see you today (we are open 9am until 6pm!) as you stock up for your New Year's Eve! If you're like us, you need some wine before heading to bed at 9pm :)

Also, for what it's worth, if you've been saving a nice bottle for a special occasion - we encourage you to open it up tonight. Life is short, and our time here is limited. Things can change in an instant. No better time than now to celebrate all we have to be thankful for!

Thank you again, and Happy New Year!

Cheers!

The team @ winestore.

Some Champagne for your New Year's Eve!

From the import book of wine importing celebrity Eric Solomon, comes a Champagne that is sure to please on this New Year's Eve.

Now this may be a bit confusing, but stay with me – Champagne maker Davy Dosnon is part of a family lineage in Champagne that spans generations and he makes wine from his family’s estate that is labeled as Champagne Dosnon. But he also makes a wine called Champagne Henri Dosnon, made from grapes he buys from his next door neighbors in the sub region Côte des Bars.

Champagne Henri Dosnon Brut Rosé is a blend of mainly Pinot Noir with about 10% Chardonnay aged in bottle for 20 months before disgorgement and finished with a dosage of 10 grams/liter which, if you’re not sure, is a bit dry for a Brut Rosé. These are distinctive wines, unusual in that they are barrel fermented in used, white Burgundy barrels, creating richness and complexity that shouldn’t be confusing at all, just really nice.


Dry rosé champagne, aged in white burgundy barrels, from Eric Solomon for less than Veuve Clicquot?

Impress all your friends that "know wine" with this one 😁

SALE runs Wedesday December 29th - Friday December 31st, 2021

*Curbside Pickup Always Available!*


Lowest Price in the US!

The year end deal train is in full motion, and we are pulling out all the stops!

Today we're featuring what may be my favorite white wine in the store right now - Solanilla - at the lowest price it has ever been offered! I mean, when it is 76 degrees in December that is white wine weather, right?


Solanilla is a stylish version of modern Rueda, a white wine based upon the Verdejo grape, a Spanish treasure that might have died out were it not for the steadfastness of one man: Angel Rodriguez of Martinsancho. For a time, Verdejo often was mixed with Sauvignon Blanc, which more or less covered up the true character of Verdejo. These days, many blend it with Viura, not a sin in itself. But the character of Verdejo is very much worthy of its own expression.

Usually, this means treating it like Sauvignon Blanc, emphasizing its tangy, somewhat herbal citrus notes. But the grape can carry oak too though few are committed to such versions at present. Solanilla is one of those few: it's barrel fermented and aged eight months in new French oak, showcasing the richness and texture of Verdejo.

For me it's like if Rombauer and Louis Latour had a baby. You get the richness of the Cali Chardonnay, yet the liveliness of the Burgundy...all wrapped up in a Spanish Verdejo.


On sale through Friday! Let's do this!

Yes, I do love this label...but I love the wine even more. 

Pabellón cruised into Top 20 best selling wines of 2021 and we only mentioned it in an e-mail one time. Once. That means the people that were buying it kept buying it over, and over, and over again. I think they love it as much as I do.

So when it made a splash into the Wines of the Year sale more people started picking it up and now it's getting interesting. We received a bunch of e-mails over the Holiday to our inbox with a photo of this bottle with things like "Do you have more?!" and "When will this be on sale again?".

Well folks...we aim to please. So this week we are putting Pabellón back on sale through the end of the week. It's your chance to either see what you've been missing out on or grab a six pack to get you through January 😂


It makes sense this wine is so delicious. 

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

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

I know what I'm drinking tonight! Let's go!

Is it really two days until Christmas?!?!

*Please note - this sale goes through midnight on December 26th, and while we are closed December 25th, you can order online if you need to use that new gift card you received 😊

Now - on to why the sale is happening.

There actually was a wine that should have been in our top wines of the year sale...but you guys bought it all and we didn't have any to sell!! That has now all changed with the arrival just in time for Christmas of the Larme Rosé!

Why is the wine so special?

Well, 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.

Larme has all this and more in spades.

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

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

Why is it so amazing?

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

Since its launch it has been our #1 selling Pinot Noir in terms of gross dollar volume and it is a THREE time "Belle Glos Blind Tasting" winner (also it has never come in worse than second) and for my money, one of the best under $50 Pinot Noirs on the market today.

So here we go - holiday sale #2!!

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!

#1 Italian We Tried This Year?

2018 Il Fauno di Arcanum



Release: $39.99 (Click HERE to see)
winestore. Price: $24.99 (net)
SAVE 37%




*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

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!

2019 Bernard Chamfort Plan de Dieu



Release Price: $20.00
winestore. Price: $12.99 (net)
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?
