New Vintage Of This Runaway Hit - On Sale Through Sunday!

2020 Corasado Monastrell

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

Lowest Price in the US!

Sale runs Wednesday July 6th, 2022 - Sunday July 10th, 2022


*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

Of all the sub $15 wines that have rocked my world over the last few years, Corasado is near the top of the list.

The first vintage of Corasado sold out in three months. This one lasted not much longer. So if big, bold and fabulous red wines are your thing (and apparently it is a thing for many of us :),  you're gonna be loving the new vintage of this runaway hit.

What's up with the wine?

Most wineries talk about giving their wines a "sense of place", but few places can create value wines like Jumilla, with it's very unique and intense weather.  The hot summers are bounded by the place’s long, cold winters and its high elevation, providing a shift of as much as a 77 degrees difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures (you read that correctly) and an almost total absence of rainfall, with its vineyards scratching out a spot on dry and stony ground. It’s tough ground for most grapes, but Monastrell (the French, who borrowed it from Spain, call it Mourvedre) can thrive here.
 
This 100% Monastrell from Bodegas lo Nuevo is a great example of the almost preposterously complex drinkability that Jumilla can deliver. Huge fruit, depth, and complexity all balanced together for a price that makes me smile.

In a world of overpriced puffy jackets and $10 cookies, we're thrilled we can still count on two things in this world - thrilling value wines coming out of Jumilla, and everyday low prices here at winestore.


We hope you all had a wonderful July 4th!

Let's get to it!

Does Big Box mean Big Savings?


 

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

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

As we have for the last decade, we put this theory to the test by purchasing a case from Total Wine and comparing it to the exact same case from winestore. We selected several wines for every day drinking (e.g. Meiomi and Sonoma Cutrer) and a few nicer wines for a special occasion (e.g. En Route Pinot Noir and Ferrari Carano "Tresor").

The Total Wine product was purchased at Total Wine in Wilmington, NC. The winestore. product was purchased at our Wilmington, NC location (but rest assured all our prices are the exact same at all our locations!). Both cases were purchased on June 29th, 2022.

The results were as follows:

Case of wine from Total Wine (with tax): $361.47 - click HERE to view receipt

Case of wine from winestore. (with tax): $271.47 - click HERE to view receipt

Savings of 25% or $90.00

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

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

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

Our #1 Pick For Your July 4th Party!

06.30.2022

2020 Carmita in Magnum (1.5L)



Release Price: 30.00
winestore. Price: $19.99 (net)

SAVE 33%



Lowest Online Price in the USA!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*


We've got the #1 item for your 4th of July cookout.

It is a magnum of the #1 selling value wine in the store - Carmita.

99% of the time I feel like bigger is always better (right?), and that is certainly the case in this fun package. It was one of our team members that asked if they even made these, and how much fun they would be if they did.

Lesson learned that you always have to ask - as yes, they do make them. Yes, they are fun. Yes, the price is right!

Got a lot of people coming over this weekend? You can grab a six pack of these for $120. That is the equivalent of a full case of wine for $9.99 per bottle - and the magnums simply up the cool factor by at least a multiple of ten 😁

The fact that this also happens to be the best selling value red wine in the store just makes it that much more exciting!

Never had Carmita?

Centuries ago the DO of Almansa produced high quality wines, albeit at that time they were sweet ones. The locals used Alicante Bouschet, but today they call it Garnacha Tintorera, and for the most part all the producers have nixed the sweet part of the equation. In the case of Carmita, they mix the Garnacha with 30% Monastrell to make this wickedly powerful red wine.

It's easy drinking, big, rich and all around delicious.

Oh, did we mention that the winemaking team behind this gem are involved in some of the most celebrated wine projects in Spain? So the street cred, in addition to everything else, is off the charts.

You guys know what to do!

Let's do this!

Pinot Noir for $9.99 that your friends have been gobbling up...

06.29.2022

Les Peyrautins Pinot Noir



Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 50%




Lowest Price in the US!

Sale runs through Monday July 4th, 2022


*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

During our biggest annual sale, we usually take a moment to highlight a few of our favorite offerings....and Les Peyrautins is at the top of my list.

How does a wine enter into our top 20 best selling wines just 12 months after release and when we only sent a newsletter out about it one time? It happens when high quality and extreme value mash up to create an absolutely silly deal.

What's makes Les Peyrautins so good?
 
You have been told that Pinot Noir is the most finicky of grapes; indeed, it’s supposed to be the “heartbreak grape.” The statement is not false but it’s also not completely true. To make great Pinot Noir is bloody difficult and to do it consistently is virtually impossible, unless you’re in some famous (and very expensive) place. But that’s true of most grapes. It’s true that Pinot Noir grown in the wrong place is pretty dreadful, maybe more dreadful than most other grapes. But the middle ground has plenty of wealth to it – you need a friendly place for grape growing but not too friendly. With France’s Pays d’Oc, there are places where it’s easy to ripen grapes and areas that offer just enough challenge to coax Pinot Noir into an outrageous value - creating a fresh, fruity and delicious wine....and that's what we have here.

Les Peyrautins checks a lot of boxes for me. On the quality to price scale the wine is off the charts. The packaging is nice (when I serve it nobody would ever guess this bad boy was $9.99! 😁) It's just one of those wines where I feel confident when I open the bottle I am going to really enjoy the overall experience...and that always keeps me coming back!


So if you're like me, and in your weekly wine rotation you are looking for a) value but also b) delicious wine - this wine is your huckleberry!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Even after 16 years in business, and the same price on Meiomi for at least the last 7 years, some people still don't know we offer this great deal - and offer it every single day.

So usually a couple of times a year we just need to send a simple reminder that yes, we have Meiomi Pinot Noir. Yes, it is $14.85. Yes, our commitment to low prices knows no bounds!
 
So we're just going to leave that price right up there for you, and make this the 2nd shortest newsletter of the year :)

Happy Tuesday!

Call it T. Solomon 2.0.
 
At this point in my career I should know that you never say never, and this was one of those times. We told you back in February that this was a one time deal. No repeats.
 
We were approached 4 weeks ago by the broker that brought us this 100% single vineyard Campbell Ranch juice from some of the powerhouses who also founded Kosta Browne and he said that a restaurant group in LA backed out of their commitment for 4 pallets of the stuff (224 cases). We thought the juice was long gone, but I guess their loss is our gain.
 
This wine was simply too good to pass up (as many of you know), but we told them to take all 224 cases and have them picked up within the month (and also to save some face that they told us what we bought was all that was available) the price would have to be lower. After a significant amount of hemming and hawing, we had a deal.
 
The cornerstone of our business model is when we get a better deal, you get a better deal. We already stated that this may be the best sub $40 Pinot Noir you were ever going to try.

At $24.99 as part of our huge July 4th sale? I’m not even sure what to say...
 
We can say with near certainty that, at a minimum, you will never again see 100% Campbell Ranch juice for $24.99 again in our lifetimes…but never say never 😁
 
 Original e-mail about the wine is below.

I know what I am drinking tonight!



_________________________________________________

We have something special for you today!

On August 23rd of last year, a winemaker we have worked with in CA for many years sent us the sample in the pictures below. He told us it was 100% Pinot Noir, but other than that we had no idea what these notations on the bottle meant.




So we tasted the wine. It was good. Like really, really, really, good. Like I actually ended up drinking the entire sample bottle good (not by myself of course, but hey...we don't judge here 😂).
 
The winemaker went into this explanation of how he could not provide us with the source of the juice, he didn’t want to violate his NDA, etc. etc. etc. and then told us the price.
 
At this point in the situation I told the guy point blank that we wanted every last drop of the wine, but we would not move forward unless he gave us the full details. He caved...but we can only tell you part of the story.
 
So it turns out that cryptic message on the bottle "2020-ALD-PNCB” stood for "2020 ******** Pinot Noir Campbell Ranch”…no wonder it was so good.
 
I can't tell you what the ALD is (because I promised not to), but you can potentially do some google searching and figure it out. What I can tell you is that the people behind "ALD" are some of the most successful Pinot Noir entrepreneurs in the United States. The winemaker at ALD has a Wine Spectator Wine of the Year under his belt (which may or may have not been the 2011 Wine of the Year) and is a master of Pinot Noir.
 
So we get this sample and find out the winery wants to sell off a chunk of their 2020 Campbell Ranch juice. The release price on this single vineyard wine is $72.00 per bottle (if you can find it). I signed up for the winery mailing list and could not even buy it.
 
I have tasted the final version twice now, and I am willing to put my professional reputation on the line here and tell you that this may be the best sub $40 Pinot Noir you are ever going to try. I already went back and inquired about the possibility of getting more juice and we have not even sold one bottle.
 
There is no more. So now I can also tell you that this is it. This is a one time, one off deal. No repeats.
 
This is it!
 
To celebrate the occasion of getting access to this juice we brought back the T. Solomon Wellborn label that was around over a decade ago. This label, originally from Tantara and produced for exclusive restaurants in Los Angeles (we were the only retailer in the US to get any), made its way onto some of the worlds best value lists with virtually no distribution. It was like a unicorn wine. T Solomon was developed as a program to bottle their excess single vineyard juice - almost the exact same scenario we have here.
 
I’m buying a bunch for myself. 2 cases. I like it that much…and I know I’m going to go through the first case relatively quickly sharing bottles with people and going “you won’t believe this… 😁”

I know what I'm drinking tonight! TGIF!

Our #2 Selling White Wine - On Sale For $7.99!

06.23.2022

2020 Bleu Blanc Thau



Release Price: $14.99 
SALE Price: $7.99 (net)
SAVE 47%



Lowest Online Price in the USA!

July 4th SALE runs through mightnight, July 4th, 2022

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*


The #2 selling white wine in the store for 2022, behind Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay, is Bleu Blanc Thau.

As part of our July 4th Sale for only $7.99 - it is BY FAR the #1 white wine value in the store.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - I need more value like this in my life. You know, like the kind where the quality of the product far exceeds the price. Too often lately I think we're being presented with sub optimal options at insane prices. Not today though... (and honestly hopefully not ever here at winestore.!)

What's up with the wine?

We found the Vivarés brothers from Cotes de Thau – you’ve probably not heard of it but it’s the hilly coastal part of Languedoc in Mediterranean France. They live in Pézenas, which you should visit someday because it’s the charming birthplace of France’s greatest playwright, Molière. Robert Vivarés has a B&B with a fine restaurant and Paul travels the world for his business tasting a lot of wines. They needed a house wine that reflected the place where they grew up. So they blended Picpoul, Terret and Colombard from the hills around them and called it Bleu Blanc and its straight up a silly value.

Happy Thursday everyone! When does the weekend start?

$5 Selling Wine of 2021 is BACK and On SALE for $9.99!

Highland Falls IS BACK!

Today may set some sales records, as the pent up demand for this product appears to be completely off the charts (one store alone has 43 cases of product on back order!!!). Oh, and to celebrate we have it on sale for $9.99 as part of our July 4th sale...just because we can't help ourselves 😂


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.

This review from Vivino sums up my thoughts on the wine very succinctly!




Let's get to it! Happy Wednesday!

Decanter Award Winner Back In Stock!

2021 Maison Ventenac "Le Paria"

Release Price: $20.00
winestore. Price: $12.99 (net)
SAVE 35%




Lowest Online Price in the USA!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*


This 100% organic perennial favorite here at winestore. has finally come back in stock, and we could not be more excited. (pro tip - place this red wine in the fridge for about 15 minutes before drinking it!)

But what is up with the photo, right?

My favorite wine magazine , Decanter, recently featured Le Paria in their "Top Wines of the Year", and we thought you should know about it.

I'm not really big into lists and such, but they put Le Paria in some pretty good company.

As you can see in the photo above, they put Le Paria right in the mix between wines that cost $132, $69, and $89 (and that's just on their page. It was their best red value selection in their top 30 reds.

It is also the least expensive wine on their entire list! 

We said the first time we told you about this wine, "we pride ourselves on trying to find extreme values here at winestore., but this one is potentially in a league all its own"...and maybe it was just kinda nice to see that others seem to agree :)

Le Paria hails from the Cabardés region inside Languedoc, and a little town called Ventenac, in the rolling foothills of the Pyrenees. For France, this is warm climate viticulture though it is not so different from the southern Rhone Valley climatically speaking. In general, the Languedoc doesn't cool off in the same manner as the Rhone but Grenache is happily at home in such a sunny place. And the family is invested not only in their historical sites and vines on the side of Montagne Noire but also in sustainable viticulture (they’re members of Terra Vitis - link HERE). The vineyard is free of chemical inputs and the wine has no added sulfites; it’s aged only in traditional concrete tanks.

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

Let's do this!

2020 SWIMBAD Rosé & White

Release Price: $15.00
SALE Price: $8.99 (net)
SAVE 40%




SALE runs Tuesday June 14th - Friday June 17th, 2022!

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available!* (stay in your cool air conditioned car and let us do all the work!)


The summer temps are supposed to top out at over 100 degrees across most of North Carolina today, and stay that high through the rest of the week.

There is only one supehero wine that is designed to withstand this type of excessive heat...and that is SWIMBAD.

I need a bottle that can travel with me into the pool, ocean, kiddie pool, possibly into the cold shower without fear of it breaking, sinking etc. Heck, with rules like no glass on the beach, I just need a bottle I can bring outdoors! This bottle also needs to be able to go in the freezer to make instant rosé slushies on command, and also contain delicious wine that can fight back heat exhaustion 😂

SWIMBAD is that wine. It made me laugh and go back and look at these two videos we did on the wine (here, and here)

So we are putting the rosé and the white wine on sale through Friday, and in a world where prices seem to be going up in non stop fashion - we're bringing this to you at the ever so pocketbook friendly price of $8.99 per bottle.

I'm blowing up the inflatable pool at 5pm, throwing in some ice, some wine, and jumping in. You guys are more than welcome to join!

Happy Tuesday y'all!

SALE runs Wednesday June 15th - Sunday June 19th, 2022


*Curbside Pickup Always Available*

June of 2006 we opened our doors for the first time, and it feels like it was just yesterday...or at least feels like it was on Monday.

Every single day we are still focused on bringing you the best possible wines at the lowest possible prices - so it only seems appropriate that we take two of our best selling wines of 2022  (Snowvale is #1 selling wine of the last 16 years!) and put them on sale to celebrate. 🥂 


They will also be on the machines to taste for just $0.01 through Sunday!

The most important thing we want to say though, is thank you.

I'm not sure you can say "thank you" enough, and while we try to say it every time we see you - we just want to say it again. Each and every one of you have given us the pleasure of serving the wine (and sometimes beer!) needs for you and your family, and we are truly humbled by the opportunity.

You've allowed us to be there for celebrations, date nights, funerals, graduations, weddings, pool parties, beach trips and anything and everything in between. Thank you.

We have some of the lowest employee turnover rates in retail, and a main part of the reason is the customers we get to interface with on a daily basis are just wonderful people. Thank you.

We hope you all will stick with us for the next 16 years (and even tell your friends about us)...and while we have no idea what the next 16 years will look like, we are excited for the ride.

The one thing we will guarantee you is this - we will work our absolute best, every single day, to try and provide you the best service, prices, and wines in the wine retail business. Oh, and any time we slip up we will always make it right 😁

So THANK YOU, to the best customers in the world. We look forward to serving you soon.

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.

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! TGIF!

Is this the best white wine we have ever offered?

2018 Defaix Chablis Vieilles Vignes



Release Price: $50.00
winestore. Price: $34.99 (net)

SAVE 30%



Lowest Online Price in the USA!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*


I’m pretty sure this is the best white wine we have ever offered. It is certainly the most insane white value we have ever offered. I did not know the price when we tasted it and I simply said “I would not be surprised if this is $75".

So I was extremely pleased to learn we can offer it to you at the lowest online price in the US - $34.99 per bottle. Inexpensive it is not, but this is one of those moments where the wine is worth every penny and then some.


This also happened to be the first wine I have ever tasted from Defaix, but it won’t be the last.

Chablis is a long-established, virtually staid place and you know that because the term “Chablis” has stood in for boring white wine for nearly a century in the U.S. marketplace. Except that Chablis is not and maybe has never been a staid place. Some of the greatest Chardonnays in the world come from the fossil-rich, Kimmeridge hills; from the famed names like Dauvissat and Raveneau and from recently discovered (for me very recently) producers like Defaix, whose ancestors have been making wine here for more than four centuries. He is so Old School: long, native ferments, sometimes a month long, low SO2 levels, little new oak, native malo-lactic and no fining or filtration. 

All that put together produces a delicious white wine that is only incidentally made from Chardonnay. And will age an extremely long time too

If you’re into high end white wine - you’re gonna want some of this. If you’re into awesome wine and just don’t drink that much white - I still recommend giving it a whirl.

I think it’s that good.


I know what I'm drinking tonight (and maybe this weekend too 😂)!

SAVE 33%



Lowest Online Price in the USA!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*


I'm not trying to over hype a $10 wine, but dang...this is probably the best sub $10 full bodied red wine I have tasted since we brought in Carmita a few years ago. Just sayin'...

I tasted the Momentum, along with the Clerus, against a very well regarded $80 Rhone wine the other night and I think I preferred Momentum and Clerus... 👀 Maybe the other wine was just trying too hard.

If you try just one new sub $10 wine this year (and honestly, who does that, am I right?), please make it this one. I think it's that good.


What's the deal here?

The GSM (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre) category has certainly reached the ears of most wine consumers, though it started as little more than an interesting Australian blend in homage to southern Rhone Valley reds. Nowadays, everybody does it, and why not? Grenache is juicy and full, Syrah is mouth-filling and peppery and the two of them, more often than not, need the indescribable weirdness of Mourvedre to complete a picture with chiaroscuro depth.

The Cellier d’Eole is a cooperative based in Rieux Minervois (one of the best areas in the Languedoc-Roussillon) with 205 members that cultivate 3800 acres. Winemaker Marilyn Lasserre has an expansive view of wine styling, having trained in Bordeaux, South Africa, Australia and the US. For Momentum Solare think richness, intensity, and surprising depth for a wine of this price point.

TGIF everybody! I know what I'm drinking tonight!

2021 Lou Pichoun Rosé



Release Price: $18.00
winestore. Price: $12.99 (net)

SAVE 28%



Lowest Online Price in the USA!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*


Summertime is rosé drinking time, and don't let anyone tell you any different!

When it is 95+ degrees outside I want crisp, dry, ice cold rosé in my glass.

One of the breakout hits of 2021 for us is back for a return performance, and it is as delicious as ever!

Why did we fall in love with Lou Pichoun in the first place? (besides the distinctive blue cork...)

Along France’s border with Italy, between the Mediterranean coast and the continental region of Savoie, the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence is traversed by the Durance river. Vineyards are mostly found on the valley hills for maximum sunlight exposure. So the days are Mediterranean warm but the high altitude and the presence of the mountains makes for much cooler nights as air from the Alps descends into the vineyards.

These conditions make for delicious rosé. While this has the look and feel of Provençal rosé, it's a bit lighter and airier. And in case you wondered who Lou Pichoun is, that’s Provençal slang for the youngest, as in, the most favored child.

This was the first rosé to sell out last year, and once again we only we able to secure 228 cases to last us until the end of summer (that's how it goes sometimes). So get while the gettin' is good!

One of the better $12.99 red wines you will try this year...

06.01.2022

2020 Clerus Saint-Chinian



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

SAVE 35%



Lowest Online Price in the USA!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available*


I'm not trying to be hyperbolic, but we just had a shipment of wines come in containing some of the best value wines you are going to try this year, and Clerus is one of them. I'm a huge fan of wines that are just plain delicious, regardless of their price - and this fits that bill.

Not so long ago, southern French wines from throughout the gargantuan AOC of Languedoc-Roussillon and beyond were popular but only because of their price. As the cost of wines of so many Bordeaux and Burgundy has blown up like the latest bitcoin craze, it was inevitable that writers and consumers would take a longer look at the smaller places within this vast mostly Mediterranean landscape.

Certain spots have stood out for years. St.-Chinian uses a plethora of grapes: Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, Lledoner Pelut, Mourvèdre and Syrah, though Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache account for about 70% of the region’s grapes. The Vignerons de Cruzy Montouliers Cebazan have only been around since 2014 but they have modern cellars and contemporary ideas about winemaking, unlike some in the area.


This traditional blend is equal parts longevity and lushness, and is perfect for a Wednesday night 😁

As always, THANK YOU for your business, and enjoy this new arrival!

Did we save the best deal for today?

05.27.2022

2019 Montassin Bordeaux

Release Price: $25.00 
SALE Price: $9.99 (net)
SAVE 60%




SALE runs through May 30th, 2022 at midnight!

Lowest Online Price in the US!

*Curbside Pickup Always Available!*


I don't know that I have seen a wine for $9.99 per bottle that comes in a beautiful six pack wooden box.

I mean, that kind of packaging is not inexpensive (hence the reason you normally see only very high end wines packaged this way). Heck, Justin Winery will sell you a 3 pack wooden box for $20.00 (HERE - the equivalent of $6.67 per bottle)


But hey, what about the wine that is in the box, right?

Well, looking back on our 15+ years of serving you, we have never carried much Bordeaux (it just gets too expensive relative to quality most times). 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
- 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 10 bucks that is packed in 6 pack wood cases from Bordeaux that brings the thunder in terms of quality. 👀

I'll be honest - outside of Brooks Bank at $14.99, this is THE deal of this sale, and one of the best deals we have offered this year. I anticipate seeing a lot of these boxes marching themselves out the door today!

I know what I'm drinking tonight!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Is it summer yet?

Memorial Day Weekend is a time to give thanks to those who have given their life to serve our country. It's the weekend that kicks off summer, and rings in the end of the school year. Pools open and grills fire up. Kids get ready for camp. Life is good, right?

So this week we're gonna be playing songs like this song on repeat in the store (seriously, that song is my fave - first time you hear it by the pool it means summer is here!), while we're also rolling out our largest Memorial Day Sale ever, with prices that hit the wallet just right.

Some of the gems below we have never marked down to these prices, and a few have very limited availability.

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.

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.



2019 Willowlake Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

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.

It’s surprising that grapes like Sauvignon Blanc aren’t more widely planted in southern France, as they can be harvested fairly early to retain bright and citrusy acidity without really losing character or even complexity. Maybe wines like this will encourage more winemakers to try working with crisp and aromatic white grapes in Languedoc-Roussillon.



2020 Benieres 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!

This 100% Cabernet is full of dark berry flavors to offset its tough guy tannins. This is BIG wine for little money. It’s basically the wine equivalent to Patrick Swayze in “Roadhouse.” Best movie EVER.

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.

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 Montassin Bordeaux

SAVE 60%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

We’ve found some eminently suitable wines for you from the Gonfrier family in Bordeaux who have, since 1962, managed 18 chateaux with over 2700 acres of Bordeaux patrimony. That’s a lot of grapes. To manage that they have multiple wineries hidden away in the region including Les Chais de Rion, one of the region’s oldest medieval towns. This is Merlot first, Cabernet Sauvignon second and all about Bordeaux.



2019 Orlaida Red Blend

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.

winestore. Price: $8.99 (net) per bottle
SAVE 40%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Swimbad White is a tangy, refreshing white wine from southwest France, an ideal source of seafood worthy wines. The Bordeaux region has been reliant upon Sauvignon Blanc for decades, that much is well-known, but other, less celebrated grapes have been crucial in Bordeaux. Colombard is a relatively neutral grape but, every now and then, in the right spot, the grape takes on texture and richness. Between the tangy citrus of Sauvignon Blanc and the weight of Colombard, this embodies both the classic style of traditional French white wine and the very modern pursuit of fresh fruity flavors.



2019 La Petite Gargotte Blanc
Release Price: $14.99
SALE Price: $7.99 (net) per bottle
SAVE 47%
Lowest Online Price in the USA!


The Comte Tolosan region encompasses famed wine regions: Jurancon, Cahors and Armagnac. 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, they can be pretty charming.



2019 Snowvale Cabernet
Release Price: $20.00
SALE Price: $10.99 (net)
SAVE 45%

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

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. Just don't tell your friends how much you paid.



NV Raffaello Prosecco

Lowest Online Price in the USA!

Until recently, for Australian producers (and others), Prosecco was a grape and not a place. Recent changes Italy made to how Prosecco is classified, by renaming the grape in these wines as Glera and deeming Prosecco a place and not a grape, mooted 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. Raffaello is by far, in a sea of Prosecco producers, the best value we have ever tasted.

What if I told you we were going to go ahead and kick off our Memorial Day features with what may be the best under $15 deal we have ever offered? Well, that is what we are doing... 👀

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

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

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


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

So let's start our Holiday sale off with a bang, ok?

You all know what to do! Price is good through Monday at midnight - as long as supply lasts.

This is the third wine this week we have featured from Domaine Vellas, and for good reason.

1) Nicolas Vellas is one of the hottest winemakers in France right now
2) A container we ordered with all their stuff finally arrived 😂


Over four generations of winemaking, the Vellas family has slowly assembled a strong group of properties in Languedoc and Roussillon (Mediterranean France). In beautiful sites like Mas du Pont (near Montpellier) they have created not only a vast set of vineyards but also farmlands, bull breeding, equestrian centers, olive groves and more. They pull their Cabernet from areas such as Costiere de Nimes, Coteau Varois, Oc, Saint-Guilhem, Grès, Saint Drézery, Muscat de Lunel, Languedoc, Pic St. Loup and Faugères. With Cabernet spread out across these sunny and Mediterranean climes, ripeness and aromatics are both in strong supply.

So if you are like me and are always on the lookout for inexpensive Cabernet, this fits firmly in that wheelhouse.


To recap:
1) One of the best winemakers in France right now
2) 100% Cabernet
3) Crazy Value


Let's do this!
