Some Springtime Holiday Treats

California Spring vineyards

Springtime is for new beginnings and celebrations.  We have religious celebrations like Easter and Passover, family get-togethers for weddings and Mother's Day, and new taste treats with spring veggies and fresh herbs.  There's always room for great wines.

New from South of the Equator

For a long time it seemed American wine drinkers were interested in only two grapes: Chardonnay for whites and Cabernet (Sauvignon) for reds. I think that’s because there were thousands of gallons of uninteresting stuff coming out of California, and domestic wine drinkers and the restaurants that served them didn’t really care. Even in the short time (coming up on 9 years) I’ve been in this business of wine, I’ve watched that American taste branch out.

Something Old; Something New

 I usually use this space to Feature wines that are new to us, and we’ve got some of those here. But I’m also pleased to be re-stocking some wines from Turner Wine Imports that we have been out of or in short supply for some time. Restocking is a good time for reaquaintance. I call this “Something Old...” though these tasty reds are not really “old” - they’re “aged to perfection” (like so many of us).

4 Newbies

It's spring time, the season for us to start introducing new wines to our Wine & Words family.  Here are four that will serve as a great start to the process.
Farnese Trebbiano D’Abruzzo (Ortona, Italy) - Everyday low price $11.40

Reconnecting with Old Friends

This column is usually about new items or wines that fit a particular theme. This week, I’d like to revisit some old friends that we haven’t Featured for a while. The Feature price is 15% off the Regular price.
Fire Road Sauvignon Blanc (Marlborough, New Zealand) Regular Price $14.50/ Feature Price $12.33

Another Fine Tempranillo Bargain

Mano a Mano Tempranillo

Mano a Mano Tempranillo (Castilla La Mancha, Spain) - Everyday low price $12.50
I’ve written about Spanish Tempranillo wines before. In March of 2009 I wrote:

Four Fab Finds for Feb

These new introductions not only fit into our current and ever-popular "$12 and Under" section...they would fit into our "$10 and Under" section of yesteryear.  That's right; every one of this week's Featured Wines is less than 10 bucks.
