Please swing by the shop and see us, as you don’t want to miss the deal on these really good wines.

Happy Mardi Gras.

Albert Bichot Saint-Véran 2013 : normally $18.00, special price $15.00
Bichot has particularly good sources to produce a better than average white Burgundy for an attractive price.  The wine is fermented and held in stainless steel to preserve the natural acidity and freshness.  This wine is such a great way to kick off the day, it is bright, clean and has loads of tropical and citrus notes.
Guigal Côtes du Rhone 2011 : normally $14.00, special price $12.00 
I think the first vintage I tasted of Guigal’s basic Rhone wine was 1978.  I can remember a friend who actually kept cases for ten plus years, bringing bottles from the cellar and no one could believe that it was from the Côtes du Rhone appellation.  This is annually one of our best selling red wines, and we like the fact that we are still sourcing 2011 which is still fresh, lively and delicious.  We love being able to offer this particularly interesting wine at such a great price.
