When you bring the empty bag back in, you receive a club discount on the purchase of six bottles or more of any of our in-stock wines.   Our sixpack club has no rules and no obligations, just a good value collection of specially selected wine.   Here is what is included in our latest collection:

Wente “Morning Fog” Chardonnay, Livermore Valley California (suggested retail $14.99)  50% of this wine was barrel fermented in neutral French, American, and Eastern European oak. The other 50% was fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the natural fruit flavors inherent in this Chardonnay. Try this wine with shellfish or linguini with clam sauce.

Bortoluzzi Sauvignon Blanc, Venezia Giulia Italy  (suggested retail $19.99)  Pure Sauvignon from gravelly, red terrain, rich in minerals and microelements.  Light straw yellow with verdant hues.  The bouquet charms you with typical notes of bell pepper, peach and sage leaves endowing it with distinct elegance.  This wine is full on the palate, and fresh, with complex citrus flavors.   This wine really expresses itself when served with flavorful first courses such as risotto with asparagus and aromatic herbs and is excellent with spicy oriental cuisine.

Ricardo Dumas “Cosecha” Tempranillo, Ribera del Duero Spain (suggested retail $10.99)  Bodega Virgen de la Asunción is located in the town of La Horra, in what is known as the “Golden Triangle” of Ribera del Duero, which is home to some of the best old-vine vineyards in the region. The average age of our vineyards is 60 to 70 years, which makes our wines rich, concentrated, and harmonious with expressive Ribera del Duero character. It exhibits an intense ruby color with maroon tonalities. The aroma is intense, fresh and very pleasantly fruity. This wine pairs well with hearty red meat dishes.

Jade Mountain “La Provençale Red, Sonoma California (suggested retail $17.99)  La Provençale was inspired by the easygoing lifestyle of the South of France. Classic varietals such as Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Carignane express the juicy, dark fruit character of plum and blackberry, with hints of raspberry sauce, chocolate, saffron and smoke. Bright acidity and supple tannins make this wine a chef’s delight—the perfect complement to a wide array of dishes such as lamb with rosemary potatoes.

Peirano Estate Vineyards “Heritage Collection” Old Vine Zinfandel, Lodi California (suggested retail $17.99)   In 1879, Giacomo Peirano arrived in San Francisco from Genoa, Italy.  In the early 1880’s, he moved to what is now Lodi and began planting and farming one of the first vineyards in what has become the heart of the Lodi Appellation. This wine is made with grapes from vines that are over 100 years old.   This full bodied zinfandel has rich, juicy dark fruit, velvety raspberry, black cherry, and nice acidity  make it a good wine to unwind, or to pair with a gourmet burger on the grill, nut crusted seared rare Ahi,  delicate rich filet mignon or a beefy prime rib.

Rozak “C Block” Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir, Santa Barbara California (suggested retail $29.99)  This bottling uses the best barrels of free run juice from the original "C" block on the Rozak Ranch Vineyard which are all Dijon clones of Pinot Noir. This wine exhibits dark cherry, spice, violets, earth and smoke. Rich and firmly structured on the palate. Unfined and unfiltered. Only 125 cases of this wine were produced.  This is a surprisingly full and rich pinot noir, which is the result of the warm days and cool nights of the Santa Rita Hills.  Its earthy qualities make it a nice match for wild game.
