Budget Buster Italian Red: 2019 La Piuma Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Raul Perez Does Garnacha: 2019 Vinedos del Jorco Las Cabanuelas
When my buddy and sales rep Drew Summer of Advintage Distributing told me he had a new Garnacha made by Raul Perez, one of the top winemakers in the world, I got pretty excited. When he told me it would retail for less than $20, I got downright giddy.
Top Sancerre Deal of the Summer: 2019 Domaine Etienne Daulny Sancerre

The Domaine Daulny Sancerre truly showcases why Sancerre is one of the best Sauvignon Blanc regions in the world. The fresh and new 2019 vintage comes from one that producers and critics are calling very good to great.

96 Point-Rated Brunello: 2016 Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino
Rated 96 points by Wine Spectator and coming to you at less than $55 per bottle, this is "Brunello brilliance" at a great price. I was lucky to get a 10 case (120 bottle) allocation, and I'm dealing deep on this one. Trust me, it will sell out fast, and there is no more to be had once those 120 bottles are gone.

Stellar Alexander Valley Cab: 2019 Trig Point Cabernet Sauvignon 'Diamond Dust Vineyard'
The Trig Point Vineyard sits on a bench land site in the Alexander Valley, and it's not far from some prestigious vineyards that provide grapes for a very well-known winery whose wines sell for $75+. The gravelly, well drained soils of this site yield a formidable but graceful Cabernet that drinks like a $50+ wine, but it's coming to you at less than $25!

Fresh, Fizzy, and Fantastic: 2020 Monte Tondo Garganega Frizzante
The Monte Tondo Garganega Frizzante is the ultimate summer white! Dry, crisp, and just a little bit spritzy, it’s super refreshing and thirst-quenching. For fans of Pet-Nat or Txakoli, this will be right up your alley. Monte Tondo is one...
Concentrated and Complex Macon: 2019 Jean Manciat Macon-Charnay

The Top Summer White of All Time: 2020 Weingut Brand Weissburgunder

Rare and Legendary: The White Burgundies of Andre Bonhomme
When it comes to world-class White Burgundy at fair prices, it's impossible to beat the Vire-Clesses of Domaine Andre Bonhomme. These are wines that compete with the best of the best of Pouilly-Fuisse. Heck, they compete with Premier Cru White Burgundies from the Cote de Beaune.
Crazy Good Barbera: 2018 Borgo Moncalvo Barbera d'Asti Superiore
This tiny, family-run, certified organic estate is located in the hills above Asti, and their Barbera vines are approaching 70 years of age. These old, low-yielding vines produce a wine with full and ripe flavors yet this one stays fresh and light on its feet. My pick for the perfect summer red, this will appeal to a wide variety of palates.
2019 Benito Santos Saiar Albarino

BACK IN STOCK! The 2019 Benito Santos Saiar Albarino is another triumphant wine from this legendary Albarino producer. It’s honestly about as good as it gets when it’s comes to this Spanish white wine. From one of “Founding Fathers” of Albarino and the Rias Baixas D.O., this is so unbelievably delicious.

"An Absolute Joy To Taste": 2018 Deovlet Pinot Noir

A protege of Santa Rita Hills pioneer Richard Sanford, Deovlet's wines possess wonderful purity, transparency, and balance. Although this is his entry level bottling, there is nothing entry level about it. Just 350 cases were produced in the fantastic 2018 vintage, and we're offering this one up at one of the best prices in the country.  

Elegant and Seamless Rioja: 2017 Marques de Tomares Rioja Crianza

World-Class White Rioja: 2017 Marques de Tomares Rioja Blanco

"Absolutely Magnificent": 2018 Deovlet Pinot Noir Sanford and Benedict Vineyard
Deovlet is one of the new all-star producers of California's Central Coast, and this is their top bottling. I was lucky to get my hands on three precious cases, as the winery only makes 150-175 cases each year. Hailing from...
Josh's Favorite Sancerre: 2019 Domaine Daulny Sancerre 'Le Clos de Chaudenay'

Etienne Daulny's top Sancerre comes from a walled vineyard situated right next to his winery. Named Clos de Chaudenay, which loosely translates as "hot spot," this south-facing site produces a fuller, more concentrated, and more "serious" Sancerre.

Hot New Cab Value: 2019 Ultraviolet Cabernet Sauvignon

Baby Sancerre: 2020 Henri Bourgeois Sauvignon Blanc 'Petit Bourgeois'
No discussion of Sancerre would be complete without mentioning Henri Bourgeois. One of the pioneering producers of estate-bottled Sancerre, the family continues to produce some of the benchmark wines of the region. Their "true" Sancerre is fantastic, and we stock...
