    The Value List

    This list represents wines we think are great values for what we paid.? That’s the key – this is referenced on what we actually paid for a wine.? For wines we receive for review, or try at events and tastings, it is the suggested retail.? This might represent a great sale price that you cannot find yourself at the time you look for the wine.? We don’t promise these will be available in the price range we show, but that is where we bought them.? For the wines listed at suggested retail there is a good chance you find them for less.? The most recent wines are at the top in each category, so you’ve a much better chance of finding those in your local wine shop or favorite online retailer.

    Just click on the wine and you’ll go to the tasting notes.
