Founded in 2002, Fruit Forward is an expression of our fascination with wine. Our goal is to ignite our customers with enthusiasm, spark a desire to learn and consistently deliver sensational wines at fantastic prices. Most wine drinkers try at least two new bottles of everyday wine each month. Often these bottles of wine are selected based on their price and the looks of the labels - with little or no attention to the quality of the wine in the bottles. Our monthly service takes the guess work and confusion out of selecting and enjoying great value wines. Our expert tasting panel seeks out premier value wines from around the world and each month hand-selects the top two bottles from hundreds of candidates. We deliver these outstanding wine selections directly to your home or office each month. We taste a lot of bad wine so you don't have to!

  • Sonoma Collection Pinot Noir Sonoma District 3 2014

    Snoothrank:

    I have a split opinion about this wine. First of all, as a $15-17 Sonoma coast pinot noir, it's somewhat disappointing, and not particularly true to type, and on that basis, I would give it only 3 glasses at most. However, that being said, it's currently selling at Grocery Outlet for $5 a bottle, and it's certainly an interesting and more th... Read More

  • Just got another box of Mike Smith's wines, and have noticed the ABV's are in a reasonable space for today's super ripe Napa market. Maybe it's just the wines I tend to buy from Mike's labels, as he has said he likes the challenge of making higher ABV wines drink in a balanced way.This could have been a PM to OT, but I figured others would be in...
