When we saw the chance to snag this on closeout, it wasn’t much of a choice…we had to take it! This is the place where I would normally give you all the cool details about how the wine was made, where the grapes were grown, what kind of oak was used and for how long,Continue reading “95-pt Napa Cabernet at HUGE Savings (And Under $40!!)”

The World’s Best Dessert Wine (Only at Rockbridge Hy-Vee!!)…
…and at an absolutely fantastic (though by no means negligible) price! I’ve been reading about Chateau d’Yquem for over a decade now and this is the first time I’ve actually had any in my possession.

The Holy Grail of Lambic Producers Comes to Rockbridge Hy-Vee
It’s been a full eighteen years since I’ve actually seen this bottle “in the wild” as it were. That was way back in the day, when I was twenty-one or twenty-two, bumming around my local ‘big-box’ liquor store because I didn’t feel like going to my history lecture that day but had a couple ofContinue reading “The Holy Grail of Lambic Producers Comes to Rockbridge Hy-Vee”
One of the CLASSIC Super-Tuscans (At an Unbeatable Price!)
Ok, let’s be real, that doesn’t mean cheap…but the ‘big boys’ from Bolgheri never come cheap, now do they? That said, this is about the best price you’ll find anywhere on an absolute legend of a wine. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate–“This is a beauty, so generous and opulent with fully seamless transitions. The wine’s traditionalContinue reading “One of the CLASSIC Super-Tuscans (At an Unbeatable Price!)”

(Super) Lucky Score on a 100pt California Cult Red!
So, so excited to get a bottle of this! We’d actually put in for a couple 100pt bottlings from Vérité, but stock was extremely slim (a couple of bottles of each wine) by the time we got a shot at ’em, so we were fortunate to score even a single bottle. It’s not cheap byContinue reading “(Super) Lucky Score on a 100pt California Cult Red!”

Another INSANE Wine Closeout: 95pt D66 “Others” Grenache…Under $15!!
When we got a few cases of 2017 “D66” Grenache a couple weeks ago on an amazing closeout deal and blew them out for $14.99, y’all saved $20 a bottle…and cleaned us out in record time. It was a big, bold, bruising New World red with an almost Port-like intensity. We had a few peopleContinue reading “Another INSANE Wine Closeout: 95pt D66 “Others” Grenache…Under $15!!”
Luxury Bordeaux Pre-Sale: Super-Limited Time Offer!
Here’s one for those of you who have been asking about high-end Bordeaux and what we can get/what’s available. Usually there’s only one allocated/presale Bordeaux offer per year (and they didn’t do one in late 2022, due to an influx of other product, shipping issues, etc) but they did decide to make it up toContinue reading “Luxury Bordeaux Pre-Sale: Super-Limited Time Offer!”
