…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. Not only is it crazy expensive, it’s also widely-recognized as la creme de la creme of high-end sweet Bordeaux and,Continue reading “The World’s Best Dessert Wine (Only at Rockbridge Hy-Vee!!)…”

Fantastic, Hyper-Limited Chateauneuf-du-Pape (92pts, Under $30!!)
I really wish I could post this publicly, but we made a deal that if we could snag a couple of cases of this, we wouldn’t put it up on the website (or the shelf for that matter!). It’s kind of a sell-from-under-the-counter-or-through-wine-club sorta wine. Why? There’s very little of this to go around, andContinue reading “Fantastic, Hyper-Limited Chateauneuf-du-Pape (92pts, Under $30!!)”
Gas is $3.39/Gallon…But We Have You Covered!!
Ah, yes, it’s that time of year. The sun starts to shine a bit more, the weather becomes bearable, and…gas prices start to creep up. We tend to see a bit of this every year, even without **gestures frantically around** all the nonsense making things more difficult in today’s world. Well, we may not beContinue reading “Gas is $3.39/Gallon…But We Have You Covered!!”
Haut-Brion Comes to Hy-Vee!!
Wait, what?! No, seriously. Well, sorta.

Dan’s Wines for Easter (Ten Top Picks)
Let’s be honest, I could come up with pages of suggested bottles for celebrating with family and friends this weekend, but I figured we should try to keep it manageable and just hit some fun, lesser-known highlights to save time. You won’t find any particularly pricey bottles on this list (all are under $30 withContinue reading “Dan’s Wines for Easter (Ten Top Picks)”
Are You KIDDING Me? (Closeout Premier Cru Chablis!)
Looking through one of my distributor’s books, I couldn’t believe that they were closing out the last case of this Premiere Cru Chablis. I was even more stunned when it actually showed up, and at the price that I’d been quoted. On top of that, 2018 was a phenomenal vintage in Chablis, and this wineContinue reading “Are You KIDDING Me? (Closeout Premier Cru Chablis!)”
Absolutely Bonkers Deal on Southern-Rhone Red (Exclusive!!)
No, I’m not being particularly hyperbolic (or at least any more than usual)…this is just a stupid good deal. We caught wind of this on a pre-sale email and, once I’d looked into it, I knew we had to try to get some. And guess what?! We are the only account in town that gotContinue reading “Absolutely Bonkers Deal on Southern-Rhone Red (Exclusive!!)”
A Cult-Classic Washington Winery comes to CoMO…
…with their affordable, entry-level Cabernet and a couple of mid-level gems!! Even better? We’re the only ones to receive these wines locally!! The arrival of these wines is exciting (at least to me) for a couple of different reasons. First of all, I used to have DeLille Cellars in my portfolio when I was onContinue reading “A Cult-Classic Washington Winery comes to CoMO…”
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!!”
Two Fantastic, Tiny-Production, Old-Vine Red Burgundies (For Under $30 with BIG Fuel Savers!!)

This tiny 17-acre domaine, founded in 2016, has holdings split over several different AOCs, including 1er Cru holdings in Maranges and Rully, and farmingContinue reading “Two Fantastic, Tiny-Production, Old-Vine Red Burgundies (For Under $30 with BIG Fuel Savers!!)”
