  3. Evening Land Chardonnay Super Deal: Was $25, now Just $9.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, We’re still trying to figure this whole Evening Land thing out.

    To all Wine Exchangers, Most of you probably haven’t thought of New Zealand as a hotbed for smashing, world-class Chardonnay. And you’d more than likely be correct. However, there is one producer in particular, who is so great, so supernal, so off-the-charts better than anyone else, it’s not even fair.
