Rombauer Classics

Best Prices for One of the Most Popular Wineries in California!
Rombauer is a name that needs little introduction.  One of the best-selling names in California wine history, their Chardonnay and Zinfandel set standards for big bold wines.  Those wines mirror the house style—the goal with all the wines from Rombauer is to be as delicious as possible right out of the gate.  When the family started their winery in the 80’s, this was a revolutionary notion.  Now, it seems like a no-brainer thanks to their efforts.

We’re offering stunning deals on a wide variety of their wines—a bit of a coup, if we may say so ourselves.

Another Excellent Value from Casa Castillo

Jumilla, in southern Spain, is one of the top sources for rich and dense value reds.  The dominant grape there, Monastrell (AKA Mourvèdre) handles the heat well, ripening slowly without becoming overly alcoholic.  The resulting wines are dark, powerful and, thanks to the limestone soils, surprisingly fresh as well.  We’ve always leaned on the region for top value wines and with the arrival of Casa Castillo’s new “Vino de Finca,” we have another winner.

Brovia: Top Echelon Traditional Producer

(But Not in Price!)

Despite being in the top echelons of Barolo, prices for Brovia’s wines have yet to seriously escalate. They stand with any producer’s collection of Baroli and yet are priced below many ‘name’ producers that are making wines of less character and interest.  For traditionally made Barolo, these are some of the best wines you can buy (at any price, really, but especially for the price).

If you’re new to Brovia, here’s the scoop:  Wonderful, expressive wines made and farmed in traditional methods.
