Pardon Our Dust. We just made a last minute change to a new email delivery service and so the formatting below is a little rough while I figure out how to use this new system. You may be seeing your first email from us in a while. Reliability of delivery was the reason for the change. I hope you are not alarmed and will enjoy this month's edition.
CorkBoard Guest Is One Of Wine & Spirits Magazine's "2017 Best New Sommeliers"

Attendees of past CorkBoard wine tasting events may recognize Justin as one of our frequent guests while he worked as a wine rep and was studying to become a Somm. Inspiration in New York led to his opening a restaurant in Dewitt, Bridge Street Social, which features over 150 wines available by the glass. The Wine & Spirits article can be found here: http://www.wineandspiritsmagazine.com/people/somm-entry/justin-king-bridge-street-social-dewitt

Two Great Dessert Wine Kits
Just In Time For The Holidays
Winexpert has re-released two limited edition wine kits, Chocolate Raspberry and Chocolate Salted Caramel, and yes, they taste as good as they sound.
 
Chocolate Raspberry: "warm cherries and plums, supported by a racy zing of bright raspberry and luscious chocolate". 
 
Chocolate Salted Caramel: "The velvety decadence of chocolate blends beautifully with rich salted caramel" We were brought a sample from a previous batch (thanks Michael) and we were really impressed by the flavors and richness. This guilty pleasure makes a great gift for just about anyone (over 21 of course).
Wine Special Of The Month: Pierre Andre
Sooner or later all things must come to an end. We've been selling Pierre Andre Bourgogne Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from day one. Jackson's wine group Les Amis du Vin visited this winery back in 2000 and had a great experience. It was one of the inaugural wines in the Peerless Imports portfolio. We recently discovered that Pierre Andre was bought by Maison Bejot Vins, a company that has been recently accused of mixing wines from other regions into some of their Burgundies, which as you can imagine is a capital offense in France. It is not clear whether these specific wines are implicated.
 
Sadly, Pierre Andre as we knew it is no more. We might very well have the last of their wine in the state. Here is a chance to savor history. Regularly $16.99, we are putting the Bourgogne Chardonnay and Bourgogne Pinot Noir on closeout for just $9.99 per bottle or $99 per case while it lasts. You will never see it again at this price. In fact, you may never see it again at any price. We also have a few bottles of their higher end wines available at comparably deep discounts as well. Shop early for best selection and before Maison Bejot CEO Vincent Sauvestre gets his one-way ticket to Fleury-Merogis.
German Dinner
At Cascades Manor House October 12th

Here is an opportunity to discover that there is more to German wine than Riesling. This special event will take place on Thursday, October 12th at 6:00PM. Call Cascades Manor House at 517-784-1500 for reservations and for more information. Seating is limited so make your plans early. 
Wine Club Sixpack #72
Is Now Available
Our latest grab-and-go collection of 2 white and 4 red wines are featured in our latest wine club sixpack. As always, they come in our reusable, partitioned, eco-friendly six bottle bag and contains over $70 worth of wine for a special price of $49.99. When you bring the empty bag back in, you receive a club discount on six bottles or more of any of our regularly priced in-stock wines. Our sixpack club has no rules and no obligations, just a good value collection of specially selected wine. Stay tuned to our Wine Sixpack Club Page for more details on this and our future sixpacks once they are released.
Our Latest $99 Wooden Crate Special
There is no mistaking this for anything else but traditional Bordeaux red. The French call it "Terroir". If you were to blend 60% Merlot with 40% Cabernet Sauvignon grown anywhere else on the planet it will not be the same. The moderate temperatures of 2015 gave this wine a nicely balanced structure and relatively low alcohol by today's standards at just 12.5%. That is what makes Chateau L' Eglise Saget such a value at $9.99 a bottle or $99 for a case of 12 in its very own versatile wooden crate.
