This Week's Magic Monday Deal

It's back: the $8 stunner.

What does $8 buy? 2 Starbucks? A deli sandwich? Normally, it doesn't stretch to a decent bottle of wine, but there are exceptions. This is one of them....

From the high plateau of Valdepenas, this great little red tastes just like southern sunshine. Old vines (80+ years) of Tempranillo translate into ripe, rich cherry, strawberry, and plum. Oak aging contributes vanilla, cinnamon, and saddle leather. Silky smooth finish, too.

Stash a few away for grad parties, cookouts, and warm nights on the back porch. You'll be glad you did.

Don't forget to get your ticket* for Drink Pink on May 22.
* Custom-etched Riedel wine glass. Great ticket!

Sale is online only, through Sunday, May 8, or when product runs out. Pickup is in-store at your convenience. Just click on the Specials tab above to find your savings.

Notes From All Over

The Best Gift
Mother's Day Card

Mother's Day is next week. Make those brunch reservations. Brace yourselves for the avalanche of cards, flowers, and candy, not to mention 'mom' themed jewelry, T-shirts, signs, etc. How did Mother's Day become such a commercial bonanza?

Drink Pink; Donate Responsibly

This is usually a lighthearted space, a musing take on something delicious I discovered, or our fabulous customers and friends, or another subject of local or regional interest. Usually. But this is not a usual week.This week, I want to talk about cancer.

Welcome, Summer
Rose-Colored Glasses

I know, I know. It's not that warm. Yet. But it will be, and I know this because I spent Friday evening building a veritable wall of rose wine. When those glorious pink wines start flowing in, summer's on its way. I can almost smell the beach.
