Everyone knows France makes a lot of great wine, but everyone also seems to know that French wine is difficult to understand, as well as being way too expensive for the average wine drinker. Well all that’s changing. There’s still a market among collectors (many of them newly rich Chinese business tycoons) for the arcane “cellar selections,” but the rest of the French wine world wants to sell its bottles to the rest of the wine drinking world. So we’re getting well-made wines with understandable labels and very attractive prices.

We’ve had a great time this last couple months exploring some of the wines we carry from two of the great wine regions of the world - Spain and France. It’s fun for us to search for wines that fit particular slots in a theme, but sometimes we miss a few newbies that come our way and don’t fit into the theme. When that happens, we need to have a catch up of “What’s new?”
