This Week's Mad, Mad Monday Deal

It's no secret that we love our Portuguese wines at Pour Richard's. Why? Because they are incredible values. If you enjoy drinking good wine, but want to do so without breaking the bank, try Portugal. Seriously, the wines are that good. And that cheap.

Like this one: named after the world's longest bridge, the Vasco da Gama, a 10.5 mile long span over the Tagus River in Lisbon, 10 Mile Bridge is a 100% Castelao that is THE perfect every-night red to see you into spring.

Soft and juicy, with full, rich raspberry and cherry flavors, it's accented by a touch of spice and a hint of bittersweet cocoa on the smooth, velvety finish. Why so cheap? No idea. We only know that we like it. A lot.

Online special available for pickup in-store after noon today. Special available until Sunday, August 19, or until we run out of wine. To purchase, just click on the Specials tab, above.

Notes From All Over

Don't Panic (aka Savor Summer)
Savor Summer

Something about the act of flipping the calendar to August incites a particular brand of panic: 'NOOO! It's August, and I haven't even gotten to go to the beach/have a cookout/see a movie at the drive -in theatre/fill in your favorite summer activity'. It's tempting to blame this impulse on the back-to-school ads, but even families with no member within shouting distance of school age seem to feel this FOMO end-of-summer panic.

Perfect Day

The height of summer brings perfect cloudless days, gardens and markets overflowing with nature's bounty, extended twilit evenings, and a relaxation unique to the season. But if you're sending a child back to college soon-even if that college is across town-there is also a bittersweet sense that this time is finite. If the college is across the country, even more so. With my daughter's imminent return to Los Angeles firmly in mind, we stole a beach day last Friday and headed to Block Island.

No Richard

Countless people have asked if my last name was 'Richard'. Variations: 'Who's Richard?' 'Where's Richard?' and 'Is your husband Richard?' Ladies and gentlemen, there is no Richard. We named the store for Ben Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack, then doubled down on the clever with 'Pour' instead of 'Poor'.
