This Week's Magic Monday Deal

Wow-customers really, really liked the Spring Favorites Sixpack! So...why mess with success? Let's try six more!

As you can tell by our now-giant display of rose, we are big fans of the pink. Since all but one or two of our summer selections have been delivered, it's is a great time to experiment. Try something brand-new, like a rose from Austria. Return to an old friend, like the Argiolas. Either way, you'll be ready for all the sunshine forecast for this week.

As a bonus, we'll package your wines in a Pour Richard's sixpack Logo Tote. Ready, set, spring!
Special includes one bottle each of:

Domaine de Paris, a lithe, crisp little thirst-quencher from Cotes de Provence.

Domaine de Pallus 'Messanges' Chinon Rose, the essence of strawberry rhubarb jam made into a dry pink wine. Cab Franc-mmm!

Carol Shelton's 'Wild Thing' Rendezvous Rose, a dark, exuberant, bold rose from California's high priestess of Zinfandel.

Back to France, Joseph Mellot's Reuilly is an elegant, graceful wine-the palest of pinks, with flavors of melon, strawberry, and mineral. 100% Pinot Gris (a RED-skinned grape!)

Loimer Rose, a Zweigelt from Austria, full of bright, clean cherry and red-currant fruit. Refreshing.

And last, an old favorite: Argiolas Serralori Rosato. In another life, I sold this wine for an importer. We never got enough. Some years, we'd just split the New England allocation among the staff. Now that Argiolas is sending a (little) more of this to the US, you, too can enjoy this full, fleshy, joyful rose.

Memorial Day wines-check.

Sale is online only, through Sunday, May 24, or when product runs out. Pickup is in-store at your convenience.

Notes From All Over



The coming of a New Year is always a good time to sit back and reflect on the months just passed. What was good? What was REALLY good? Typically, this results in a list, and we won't buck that trend. We will, however, ask for your input.

One of best parts of my job is finding incredibly tasty new discoveries to share with you. There were a LOT this year. I could easily list a hundred or so. But after extensive editing, and in no particular order, my Top Ten for 2013:

10. Pedroncelli Cabernet.
How can $12 taste this good?


Slog through 4 different malls to find the exact combination of color and size that your teenager requested. Bake cookies. Clean the house. Wrap the presents. Replace the lights that worked last year, but don't now. Pick Grandma up from the airport-in a huge traffic jam. Re-clean the house. Run out to buy gifts for 2 people who unexpectedly gave you gifts. Get a hostess gift for the neighborhood gathering. Drop off your Toys for Tots and Food Pantry donations. Deliver all the teacher gifts. Hit the grocery store for your holiday meal.

If Bottles Could Talk...
If Bottles Could Talk...

Seriously, what if the bottles could tell you about their contents? It would be a wild cacophony of languages and dialects. (And since we have so many French and Italians, they'd all be talking at once...!)
But personally, I'd like to hear the Armagnac section. "Psst, you there.....yes, you, ze wine lou-vair, do you want to try something amazing, something incroyable? I am ze best-kept secret in the world of spirits! "
