  1. Going Big: Bordeaux's Best Magnums at Outstanding Prices

    To all Wine Exchangers, Go Big or Go Home! How many times have you heard that? I know, too many. But there’s definitely something to be said for ‘going big’, especially when it come to the world’s most collectible wines. Bordeaux magnums look cool, age forever and, as opposed to those bulky 3 liters and 6 liters where you have...
  2. 94pt Knockout from One of Barolo's Greatest Vineyards at a Truly Ridiculous Price...

    To all Wine Exchangers, For years the term The Burgundy of Italy has been used to describe the Piedmont region and its wines. I have to say, the comparison is apropos. Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo share many of the same characteristics, haunting aromatics, deceptively light color in relation to flavor, proven track record for aging and, when firing on all...

CHATEAU HAUT BRION BLANC 1989. TAYLOR’S PORT 1927. …SANTA RITA CASA REAL? One might wonder what kind of list would include the following combination...
  5. Winex Value Alert: 93pt Old-Vine Chenin, Just $12.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Everything about today’s offering is cool. The labels are cool, the wines are cool, even the owner/winemakers name, Adi Badenhorst, is cool. There’s almost a danger of this offering being too hip. In wine terms, Adi Badenhorst is one of South Africa’s up and coming rebel rock stars.  He left a great gig at Rustenberg, one...

As those of us called OWE’s (Old Wine Exchangers) walked the...
