  1. Almost 50% Off This 91pt Old-Vine Spanish White!

    To all Wine Exchangers, What a treat to finish out the year for white wine with an offering that pushes all the buttons and epitomizes what we do as a company. Great story? Check. Master of Wine Julia Harding broke it down thusly, “Made from 100% Verdejo grapes, this fresh, zesty, lemon- and grapefruit-scented white wine is a delicious and...
  2. Grab This Double 94pt St. Emilion Cellar-Direct 2009 Cult Classic Now!

    To all Wine Exchangers, It was over twenty years ago when a Bordeaux merchant walked into our store with a 1992 vintage Bordeaux from a producer we had never heard of.  We were all laughing under our breath as 1992 was an, ahem, how can we say this nicely… ‘useful’ (barely) vintage in Bordeaux.  In fact, it was a terrible...
  3. Cristom's Back With a 95pt Mt. Jefferson Stunner, Only $27.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, It almost makes me a little verklempt when I think about just how much respect and admiration I have for the team at Cristom Vineyards. Three guys, together since 1992, honing their skills and crafting some of the finest Pinot Noir in North America. Three guys that have learned together, grown together and watched their vineyards...
  4. Exquisite 97 and 95 Point Barolo Deals from Virna!

    To all Wine Exchangers, The Borgogno name is a strong one in Barolo.  And, it appears, a divided one.  There are numerous wineries in Barolo that currently are or have been Borgogno-operated, though we’re unaware of the relations (if any) between the families or how far out the tendrils extend.  Regardless, if there are indeed multiple Borgogno clans in Barolo...
  5. 93-95 Point Parker-Rated Napa Cab Just $29.98, Mags Too!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Everything old is new again.  And better!  Hey, we have nothing but praise for the Martinis, who produced one of the bread and butter labels in California in the 60s and 70s when ‘baby boomers’ were learning about wine.   But, as happened to lot of labels during the ‘corporate’ winery years of the 1980s and 1990s...
  6. 'Graben' Some of This "Gorgeous" 93pt Riesling While You Can!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Back in the day (like, the 1980’s), when ‘German wine’ was but a sea of Liebfraumilch and Zeller Schwarze Katz and other grosslage plonk, it was pretty easy for the ‘cutting-edge’ merchants at the time to carry ‘the good stuff’.  Simply put, all you needed to know about German wine back in 1985 were the respected...
  7. Hot Pre-Arrival Offer on this 98-100pt Bordeaux, only $99.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, If today’s offer was a Napa Valley Cabernet with its 98-100-point score and limited production of 500 cases… what do you think this wine would cost?  In the land of Harlan, Screaming Eagle and Realm’s of the world?  $500 +, easy.  Now take where this wine hails from… the “Right Bank” of Bordeaux with estates like Ausone, Petrus...
  8. A Trio of Treasures from Italy's Newest Rising Star!

    To all Wine Exchangers, The story of Azienda Agricola Tiberio rings more like a new world tale than one from the old world of the ancient lands beneath the Majella and Gran Sasso mountains in Abruzzo. At 350 meters, twenty-three miles inland from the seaside city of Pescara near the hillside town of Cugnoli, Riccardo Tiberio found an old plot...
  9. Two Russian River Classics from Walter Hansel, Save 10% on Mixed Cases!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Walter Hansel.  A retailer’s dream come true.  I gotta say, it’s pretty easy selling wine from a winery that consistently does a fabulous job, charges reasonable prices for the quality in the bottle, and has quietly racked up serious accolades for, literally, years. For a lot of folks, it’s ’98 points or nothing!’  But we still...
  10. Merlot Is Back! Two 94pt Titans from Substance

    To all Wine Exchangers, Is Merlot back? Well, for those of us who love the grape, it never left, Sideways be damned. A recent article in the British newspaper The Guardian noted that ‘luxury’ Merlot sales were actually up 5% last year. Up? Merlot? Believe it.  And, of course, there’s a reason for the ‘up’.  After the ‘Great Merlot Culling’...
