  1. Domaine-Direct 2002 1er Cru Red Burgs at Fantastic Prices!

    Dear Wine Exchangers, Putting our money where our palates are.  For us, there’s nothing better. We actually seek these opportunities out. It’s the last bastion of being a fine wine merchant, especially when it comes to the sourcing of older wines. Tris and myself are double diligent when going through this process.  We taste many of these library wines once...
  2. Cune's Stunning 96pt Imperial Reserva Is Back...If You're Quick!

    To all Wine Exchangers, When opportunity knocks you answer the friggin’ door!  A little over a year ago we moved through a big chunk of the glorious Cune Rioja Imperial Reserva 2011.  From the start, this wine had been our choice for Reserva of the vintage and, when the last delicious bottle left our doors, we were openly bitter.  Recently...
  3. A Winex First: Genuinely Tasty 93pt Chard, Only $9.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, This was a surprise. Hey, listen, a lot of wines get ‘scores’ nowadays, right? What with the number of pundits ‘in the market’ now and the overall improvements in fine wine on all levels, it was only natural that the ‘bar’ would continually raise. But even in the context of everything that has gone on over...
  4. RELOADED: Cellar-Direct Steal, this 2001 Haut-Medoc is Only $21.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Here we go again! Another one of our hottest and fastest selling library Bordeaux steals is back for one last hurrah (while supplies last). We sold our original offering of 50 cases within a mere hour and a half when we sent it back in November of last year and based on that response went back to...
  5. $35, 2015 Burgundy Closeout Only $19.98! Not a Typo...

    To all Wine Exchangers, Never say never because you just never know what will happen in the current marketplace.  Papa John’s, Tesla, Roseanne Barr, there seems to be plenty of crazy to go around.  We have come to expect being baffled, shocked, and confused.  But something happened the other day that was even crazier, something that made us seriously consider...
  6. 96 pts & one of the Top Brunellos of the Vintage: In Stock Now!

    To all Wine Exchangers, South side in the house! Montalcino’s southsiders are an important collection of wineries.  This group of neighbors just a couple kilometers from downtown Montalcino includes Lisini (more on them later), Gaja’s Pieve Santa Restituta, Poggio Antico, Il Poggione and… Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona. Think that group has made a few great bottles of wine over the years...
  7. What Happens When the Best Gets Better? Carlisle's Super '16's!

    To all Wine Exchangers, What hasn’t already been said by us about the talented, passionate Mike Officer? We don’t want his head to get too big, so we won’t blather on, as usual, about how great he is. Nope, this time, we’ll let the pundits blather on about how great he is… “Winemakers Mike Officer and Jay Maddox have hit...
  8. 93pt Down-Under Cabernet Icon Now Only $16.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Here’s a good one. No, make that here’s a great one. Kym Tolley was one of the modern pioneers of Australian Cabernet Sauvignon.  As the man who ran his family’s Penley Estate for decades, he managed to help bring the Cooanwarra wine-growing region to prominence as one of the boutique guys in the area (why let...
  9. 2008 Cellar-Selection Dauvissat Chablis 1er Cru, Only $29.98!

    To all Wine Exchangers, Y’know, as a general rule, be nice to people, treat people like you want to be treated, conduct your business in a cordial manner, pay your bills on time, and you get access to wines like this one. We value our relationships with our suppliers.  Honestly, if they don’t give us the wine, we can’t sell...
  10. Stunning Micro-Production 2015 Bordeaux from a 3-Star Michelin Somm!

    To all Wine Exchangers, This is certainly one of the more interesting stories we have told this year. It all starts with Canadian-born, former engineer Marco Pelletier who stepped away from his profession because he got bit by the wine bug.  He went on to work as the sommelier at a number of elite eateries including 3-Star Michelin Le Bristol...
