  1. Best Wines Direct: 2001 St. Emilion Grand Cru Classe only $29.88!

    To all Best Winers, Here is a St. Emilion estate that has quietly gone about their business of making serious wine while avoiding all the 'hoopla'. Located atop the infamous St. Emilion plateau sharing the same soils as neighbors La Gomerie, Grand-Mayne and Clos des Jacobins, this property has been with the same family since the 1800's. With 74 acres...
  2. Really 'Super' Tuscans: Personal Faves from Petrolo, Pre-Arrival

    To all Best Winers, Let me tell you about Petrolo. It’s one of Tuscany’s best estates. But it’s not a Chianti, and it’s not a Brunello and it’s not a Vino Nobile. It’s ‘just’ a Tuscan. But that’s like saying LeBron James is ‘just’ a basketball player. Proprietor Luca Sanjust took a chance when he purchased this property located pretty...
  3. Over Half Off a 94pt True Blue German Grand Cru!

    To all Best Winers, Some of you may recall that amazing Willi Schaefer offer we sent out back in late May. It’s funny to think that we have the same exact opportunity again, just with a different ‘Schäfer’. Though if we wanted to be sneaky, we could almost ‘cut and paste’ over a good portion of that May offer seen...

I don’t know if this fine gentleman realizes what a pivotal figure he is to the Spanish wine industry...
  6. Lytton Springs Double Play: Ridge 'Crushes It' Yet Again!

    To all Best Winers, Paul Draper. Eric Baugher. John Olney. One of these names you may be familiar with, and it’s probably the first one.  Paul Draper is considered a true California wine visionary, having been the guiding force behind the greatness of Ridge Vineyards since the early 1960’s. Ridge Monte Bello Cab? He did it. Pioneering native yeast fermentation...
  7. Screaming Oregon Pinot Deal from Dominio IV!

    To all Best Winers, Pondering...why exactly this wine ended up being such a terrific deal? Dominio IV splashed onto the Oregon wine scene with a set of releases in 2008 that took the wine press (namely the Wine Advocate) by storm. They received a bunch of scores in the 90’s, production was tiny and it appeared that they were on the path...
