  1. 'Grand Cru', Old-Vine Mosel Rieslings at 45-50% off!

    To all Best Winers, David Schildknecht wrote in his massive Wine Advocate article on Molitor that his 2011’s, “…proved to be the most exciting collection I have yet tasted at this address, and indeed among the most exciting of its vintage anywhere.” You guys were apparently smitten as well, as our offer on his 2011 Spätlese last year was an...
  2. White Wine Steal of the Year: 93 pt. Cercius Blanc just $11.98!

    To all Best Winers, We usually send out our white wine offers on Saturdays. But this one was too hot to ignore. I’m drinking your offer right now. Actually, a sizable percentage of this offer may be consumed by our staff this evening (see the margin). It’s a Best Wines party and you’re invited. The Guest of Honor? Oh, just...

This is a spectacular chance to cash in on one of Chateauneuf’s finest vintages ever, at early-in-the-game prices. Pegau proprietor Laurence Féraud knocked this wine...
  5. Cobb's Compelling Pinot Noirs, Now at Best Wines!

    To all Best Winers, Back before the North Coast of California would become what it is today, a heavily direct-to-consumer oriented business, I used to make road trips up to Sonoma to check out who was new, what was hot, search for new labels. Y’know, do my job. One year I came back with a bottle of Cobb Pinot Noir...

  7. Stony Hill's Remarkable 2008 Chardonnay: Balance in the Bottle

    To all Best Winers, So I went to this tasting last year called In Pursuit of Balance. This California movement is all the rage with the sommeliers right now as a bunch of wine types are having an allergic reaction to wines that are ‘over the top’, ‘ponderous’ and/or too high in alcohol for their liking. It’s kind of exciting...

  9. Catena Alum's 92pt, $15 Malbec Masterpiece!

    To all Best Winers, I guess you learn a thing or two when you spend 15 years working at Argentina’s greatest winery. TintoNegro was born of the long time friendship and professional collaboration of Alejandro Sejanovich and Jeff Mausbach, colleagues at Bodega Catena Zapata for those 15 years. As Wine Education Director for Catena, Jeff travelled the world preaching the gospel of the unique character of high altitude...
