Turner Wines at Great Prices


Our friend Tim Turner of Turner Wine Imports is making room for new wines that are coming into his Morrisville warehouse, and he has offered me some deals I couldn’t refuse. Chef Yvonne and I brought the wines back to Washington earlier this week, and we’re going to pass the savings on to you this weekend. These are wines we’ve had before, so if you’re a fan, make sure to take advantage of these extraordinary prices. The sale prices won’t last past this weekend...and many of the wines will be gone before Saturday.

Early Sale and Newbies in Time for the Season


This week I’m receiving my first delivery of some Holiday Pre-Sale items, and I’m passing the savings on to you. That’s right, it’s time to think about the wonderful wines you’ll be serving at your feasts and parties or gifting to your loved ones. We’ll start with two that are old standbys for feasts and fiestas:

Saint Hilaire Brut (Limoux, France) Regular Price $17.85/ Feature Price $15.17

Moving right along...

Cavicchioli 1928.jpg

There's no real theme for this week's Featured Wines, except that we're moving into the late summer/early autumn season here and leaning toward wines that go with hearty feasts and longer nights.

Cavicchioli Sparkling Wine (Modena, Italy) Regular Price $15.55/ Feature Price $13.22
