2010 Domaine Des Cassagnoles Cotes des Gascon Blanc – Wine Wednesday

2010 Bernabeleva Camino de Navaherrero Review – Wine Wednesday

post iconIn addition to its great price, there are two other things going for it. A great label.

Luckily, this time, I won and bought a bottle that was not only lovely on the outside, but lovely on the inside as well. …Read More

Jack Tone Vineyards Red Blend – Wine Wednesday

post iconThis is a fun and flirty wine offered at an amazing price. While we were sent a sample of this wine, it retails for roughly $20 for a three liter box (4 bottles), which translates into $5 a bottle. It’s tough getting a good wine for $5 and this wine delivers. Plus, we really like the fact that it comes in an eco-conscious box with a spout, which made it the perfect wine for a family gathering. …Read More

post icon

We apologize that this week’s Wine Wednesday is more like a Wine Thursday.  We have a new writer that has taken over this column that has been having technical issues.  I am resuming this week’s Wine Wednesday and bringing you a mighty fine wine from California (it’s not from any particular region because the grapes are sourced all over California).

Toad’s Hollow was a winery started in 1993 by Rodney Strong (of the Rodney Strong … Read more
