They actually spent a significant portion of the program (8-9 minutes) about wine sales. Here is the thing that blew me away. Apparently, annual wine sales at Costco exceed a... Read More

Got about a dozen cases moved closer to home, so now I'm pretty well set for the next few months of drinking! Next bottle up looks like it might very well be 1987 Dunn Napa Valley.
