  1. 94 & 95pt Oregon 'Pinots of the Vintage' from Brittan Vineyards

    To all Best Winers, This isn’t the Battle of Britain. This is the Battle for Brittan… Brittan Vineyards is the hottest producer of Pinot Noir in Oregon right now…and we got ‘em. That feels good to say! Robert Brittan left behind the ‘corporate’ winemaking trappings of Napa Valley (he pretty much ‘ran tings’ at places like Far Niente and Stags...

  3. More Maltus: 94pt Laforge 2010 St. Emilion, Just $39.88!

    To all Best Winers, Jonathan Maltus has quickly become the darling of Bordeaux. His Bordeaux line-up from the 2010 vintage received incredible marks across the board including the coveted 100 points from Robert Parker for his top-of-the-line wine, Le Dome. Today we’re offering what we think is arguably his finest quality-to-price ratio wine, the stunning Wine Advocate 94 point 2010 Chateau...
  4. Brilliance from 'Cab Franc King' Charles Joguet

    To all Best Winers, It’s one thing to make enological history, it’s another to sustain it. How many wineries were once trailblazers then, for whatever reason, be it bad business skills, indifference, what have you, fell by the wayside, into mediocre wine oblivion? More than you think. I won’t name names but the list is long enough to develop a...
  5. A Star is Born: Otherworldly Oregon Pinots from Vincent Wine Co.

    To all Best Winers, A Star is Born. Contrary to our supplemental graphic, no, I’m not talking about the Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson ‘star vehicle’ remake of the 1937 and 1954 versions of the same film. Digressing, Rita Coolidge and Tony Orlando rocked it playing ‘themselves’ in that 1976 version! Anyway, the ‘Star’ in this case is Vincent Fritzsche...
  6. Mind-Blowing 94pt White Rhone from Michel Gassier...at 1/3 off!

    .h4 { /*@editable*/ color: #9e1f63; display: block; /*@editable*/ font-family: Arial; /*@editable*/ font-size: 16px; /*@editable*/ font-weight: bold; margin-top: 0%; margin-right: 0; margin-bottom: 0%; margin-left: 0; /*@editable*/ text-align: left; } To all Best Winers, Like with any business, the wine biz has its share of tough sells and easy sells. This is one of the easy ones. Wow, is this wine good...
  7. Unbeatable Value from Ornellaia's Neighbor!

    To all Best Winers, Tibor Gal may not be a household name to many of you reading this but his legacy is extreme, to say the least. Tibor became one of the founding fathers of the current Bolgheri movement when he helped take the famed Tenuta dell’Ornellaia winery to a whole ‘nother level back in the 90’s. At that time...
  8. A $200 Bordeaux Experience for $23.33? Read on...

Argentina’s hottest producer right now is Chakana. And it’s fun to say. Chakana! Chakana! Chakana! And fun to drink. If wineries were rated on a 100...
  9. Spectacular 2010 Margaux at a Shocking Price!

    To all Best Winers, Can the other guy’s $24 2010 vintage Margaux wine do this? Sorry, loaded question. I already knew the answer. Nobody has a $24 bottle of wine from Margaux in 2010. Except us. The 2010 Marsac-Seguineau is one of the finest values from Margaux we’ve ever tasted. After doing some research we now know why. The team...
  10. Enchanting Deal on an Aussie Legend: Was $90, Now Just $38.88!

    To all Best Winers, Following up on our incredible Twelftree Shiraz offer from a few months back, we are delighted to bring you another ripping deal equally as significant, if not more so. It’s safe to say that Sparky and Sarah Marquis have made some of the finest wines not just from Australia, but the world. They took chances, bent...
