  1. More 2015 Brilliance: Lush Languedoc from Negly's Neighbor!

    To all Wine Exchangers, This wine comes from a special place in the Languedoc, and has a story that’s a little different from most that we have told.  The place is La Clape, a classified massif, a "pile" of pebbles in Occitan, that was an island until the Gallo-Roman times before the Aude river decided to connect it to the...
  2. A Couple of Brilliant, High-Scoring Bordeaux Blancs Under $20!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Yeah, even though our job here at Winex is to find you the coolest, newest, cutting edge values from around the word, we still do indeed have our ‘house’ wines as well, wines that consistently deliver a great bottle year in and year out, without fail. One of those wines is a brilliant blanc from Bordeaux. ...
  3. Miss the Durand-Laplange? Here's An Even 'Bigger' Bordeaux Deal for You...

    To all Wine Exchangers, Do you remember when we sent the 1996 Bel-Air Lagrave? It was an instant sellout. Deals like that just don’t happen anymore!  Well guess what?  We were able to snag the last remaining bottles of the sensational '96 and what’s even better…they’re in Magnums! Too cool!! 1996 was a great year for Bordeaux. It was one that...
  4. 91-93pt 2015 St. Emilion Stunner Only $13.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, The Bordeaux 2015’s are starting to arrive and although this is not the first 2015 we’ve offered, it certainly is one of the greatest values of the vintage. The 2015 Chateau Durand-Laplagne Puisseguin Saint Emilion was, as a future, one of our best sellers of the vintage… Why?  Well, typically, Neal Martin from the Wine Advocate...
  5. 2015 Burgundy Update: Killer $25 1er Cru and $16 Old-Vine Bourgogne!

    To all Wine Exchangers, First a little basic wisdom.  It is a simple fact that the hierarchy of Burgundy vineyards has been established over centuries based on performance.  Typically places like Marsannay, Santenay, Maranges and Givry don’t perform at the same level as Gevrey Chambertin or Vosne Romanée vintage in and vintage out.  But when things get a little warmer...
  6. Unicorn Alert: Your New, Awesome Napa Valley Cab for Under $20!

    To all Wine Exchangers, There are a few things in the world that make life better.  One of them is a delicious bottle of Cabernet that shows the classic varietal fruit of currant, black cherry and or blueberry, with attendant nuances of chocolate, spice, and violet.  It’s even better when it comes from a respected terroir and sells for less...
  7. 96pt 2009 Rioja Reserva for Only $24.98? Believe It.

    To all Wine Exchangers, It would be easy to write this even if we didn’t taste the wine.  We have worn our affection for Rioja on our sleeve for, what, a couple of decades? La Rioja Alta has been a house favorite for a long time as well and is one of the bastions of quality juice in the ‘traditional’...
