Join us on the 60th day of the year (March 1st)
for a celebration of Six for $60!

Tasty Tuesday: Domaine La Bouysse
Saturday Tasting: Six for $60 Spotlight!
Greetings! top
In Like a Gentle Lion?
    Another March is upon us, marking the inexorable climb out of wintry stasis and towards Spring's blossomy unfurling. For those of us who have been drinking rosé all winter, this simply means that we go from "unfashionable" to "ahead of the curve". To celebrate our newfound status as vanguard trendsetters, all non-sparkling rosé is 20% off until further notice! And we've got other March treats in store, including moving into Phase 2 of our wine & cheese display (beware The Rinds of March), and our tastings are guaranteed to help you thaw out.
   So Happy March, y'all! Let's hope that if it does come in like a lion, it's a polite lion that protects us while we sleep. Talk to us in a month when March goes out like a lamb... a furious, rabid lamb.

Rosé Sale:

20% off ALL Still Rosé!

Rosé Thangs
  That's right, baby. It's time once more for our annual pre-spring rosé sale, and it's real, real nice...
Rosé Garden Glasses      Yes, the time has come for us to dust off our garden shears (and garden gnomes) in preparation for the monumental marvel of landscape architecture which is the Rosé Garden.  Just thinking about it instills in us an almost unquenchable thirst for this noblest of pink drinks!  Though it's not yet quite time for the Garden, we have a host of wonderfully vibrant rosés in stock to choose from at a deep discount.  All still rosé is 20% off for a limited time, so enjoy and celebrate the approach of spring!


Tasty Tuesday!
Domaine La Bouysse
This Tuesday, March 4th, we present our FREE
midweek wine tasting.  Every Tuesday is tasty!

  5:00 - 7:00 pm
        Corbieres is the Languedoc's southernmost region, resting just above Roussillon. It's also the largest single appellation within the Languedoc-Roussillon continuum, comprised of nearly a dozen distinctive subregions. At its center is Boutenac, home to the always inspiring wines of Domaine La Bouysse.  This Tuesday, join us as we sample two of the estate's signature reds (each starring old vine renditions of Carignan) and a white featuring a veritable who's who of Mediterranean French and Spanish grapes.
And don't forget:
Tasty Tuesday 15%
Half-Case Discount!
   After you taste, put together 6 bottles from our Tasty Tuesday lineup, and we'll take an entire 15% off!

This Saturday from 12 to 3 PM

Viña Aliaga

Verdejo 2012


100% Verdejo 
(Navarra, Northern Spain)
Viña Aliaga continues to get better every year, and this wine is a great example. In previous vintages, their Verdejo was harvested very ripe and aged in oak barrels making for a rich, but non-distinct wine. For this vintage...

(Southern Burgundy, France)

Jacky & Frédérique Piret have been among our wine heroes for years. Their affable "La Combe" Beaujolais is produced from 50 year old vines, three generations of family winemaking, hand harvesting, sustainable agriculture and old world character. Does it get any better at this price? Pinot and...

Douro 2010
"Lua Nova"

Touriga Franca & many others! 

(Douro, Northern Portugal)

Often as grapevines grow older, their production of grapes diminishes to the point that growers will rip out the vines and replant younger, more vigorous ones. The problem is that younger vines rarely produce wines with as much richness and character as the older, more established ones do. This field blend of Touriga Franca and up to...
