  1. Powerful, Pointed Pinotage from Painted Wolf!

    To all Best Winers, A few months back we rambled on about the extremely tasty wines from Adi Badenhorst’s Secateurs label. You guys listened, we’re still selling his gorgeous Chenin Blanc at a very good clip. But we definitely felt bad that we didn’t give his awesome red wine enough ‘air time’ that day. The more we thought about it...
  2. The Critics Agree: La Rioja Alta's 2004 Ardanza is La Bomba!

One person may like more fruit, another one more structure. One...
  3. Cellar-Direct, $50 Barolo, Only $19.88!

    To all Best Winers, This. This is why we do what we do. In this business you can be lazy and wait for the deal to come to you…or you can go find the deal. In case you hadn’t noticed by this juncture, Best Wines Online is in the latter category. We are constantly hunting, constantly perusing price lists on...
  4. Killer Deals on Some Primo Summertime Whites...

    To all Best Winers, Another summer Saturday, another enticing offer of white wine deals to quench your thirst! Just so happens we had two more opportunities show up this week that have us just as excited as we were when we dropped that ridiculous $10 Pouilly Fumé and $11 South African Chardonnay on you last week. This time around we’re...
  5. It's All About Timing: 92 pt. Jeb Dunnuck 'Knockout', only $11.88!

    To all Best Winers, Hmm…where to start with this one. I got it, let’s start at the top. When we first tasted Michel Gassier’s 2011 Cotes du Rhone Vieilles Vignes Cercius just prior to bottling in early 2012 it was a precocious, delicious, chunky youngster that was quite the show-off. It was on our radar already at that juncture. “Can’t...
  6. Westside Paso Bargain: Booker & Denner Roots, 50% off!

    To all Best Winers, The Westside of Paso Robles is indeed one of the most magical winegrowing areas not just in California, but the entire world. It should soon receive its own AVA (American Viticultural Area) designation as there are very few (if any) places like it in the state, including the Napa Valley, which can grow Rhone-style grapes of...
  7. Fab Pricing on Domaine-direct '99 and '01 Grand Cru Red Burg Pre-Arrival!

    To all Best Winers, In my travels to France this past June, I decided to start out in Burgundy before heading to Bordeaux for the Vinexpo Wine Show. The mission?  To find some killer library wines that wouldn’t break the bank.  Was I successful?  Read on… My first stop was the cellar of Domaine Louis Latour in Aloxe-Corton. Upon my...
  8. Mid-day magic: Parker 90 point $8 blockbuster from Philippe Cambie!

    To all Best Winers, We usually aren’t the types to throw out a mid-day offer but after this wine crossed our threshold we had to scribble some quick prose and tell the world. It’s the finest wine we’ve ever had from Macedonia! Besides, if Philippe Cambie, the mind behind many of the greatest, 100 point Chateauneufs ever produced, advises you...
  9. Galloni's "As good as it gets for the money" Cab Selection!

    To all Best Winers, Some of you may recall our offering of Bob Long’s Montagna Tre Vigneti Cabernet (almost gone!) from a few months ago.  At that point and time this is how we summed up what was going on with the very special wines being produced up on Pritchard Hill, arguably Napa’s finest terroir for Cabernet: “And just who...
  10. "Skyscraper-like" 93 pt., $28, 2009 Bordeaux Steal!

    To all Best Winers, Chateau Les Gravieres = Under the Radar. It’s seemingly been that way for this boutique St. Emilion estate since it first broke onto the scene with a 2001 that was truly one of the top buys of the vintage with some great press, very reasonable pricing and a flattering, Sally Field-esque “you love me!” style that...
