Our recent blind tasting of some Cal-Ital bottlings was full of interesting wines but finding some of the more obscure boutique producers can be frustrating to say the least. I have mentioned the Pietra Santa Cabernet before but the Sangiovese and Dolcetto I enjoyed in this past weekend's blind tasting got me looking for a few more bottles.
But it gets even better! For a select group of wineries you don't even have to buy a case!
AmericanWinery.com has convinced some great wineries to put together compelling 3 packs at some very attractive pricing and then ship them for just a penny! If you or someone you know is into discovering new regions and producers I can't think of a better deal than one of the over 60 three-packs currently available on AmericanWinery.com. What a great gift idea!
These are not all unknowns from the next great regions. Established producers you know, like St. Supery, Parducci, and Hahn share the stage with some great names you should know like:
- Reininger - Producing classic Walla Walla Valley reds from Washington - their Syrah is unbelievable
- MacRostie - With cool mountain vineyards that straddle Napa and Sonoma it's no surprise that their Wildcat Mountain fruit is so rich yet elegant.
- De Ponte - Looking for an Oregon wine with Terroir? Try the Pinot; it's a classic and De Ponte's Oregon Melon de Bourgogne? It rocks!
So do yourself a favor, whether you are buying wine as a gift or to savor yourself visit AmericanWinery.com. They're a great holiday resource, heck they're just a great resource. Period.
