Black Friday Discount Starts Early!

Lovers of Willamette Pinot take note—the following is one of the best deals you’ll see on a bottle of wine from the valley.  Even with as popular as the Scott Paul La Paulee deal has been, we’re bracing for this to potentially be bigger.  We’re offering two delicious, serious wines at under $20 and all you have to put up with is a jester on the label.  We’re offering two back vintages of Marcus Goodfellow’s Matello Pinot Noir at significantly lower release prices—despite the fact that these wines are much better now than when they were released.

Large Format Sunday Special 11-10-18

A Large Sale on Large Bottles

For Thanksgiving (and Beyond)

It’s officially holiday party/dinner season, with the big one (Thanksgiving) right around the corner.  The weather has turned brisk and the festive feeling is back.  When we host parties and big-to-do’s, we love to make a magnum (or two) the feature of the evening.  Sure, you could just buy a couple 750’s and call it a night, but the sight of an oversized bottle of something special being passed around really helps make the night feel memorable in a way that two smaller bottles never will.  Large formats just scream generosity—of spirit and of wine.

To make your holiday partying a little bit easier, we’re offering Newsletter Subscribers 10% off on all large format bottles (magnums on up) through the end of the weekend.
