2020 Kirkland Signature Series Premier Cru Chablis

This popular Kirkland bottle usually hits stores around this time of the year.  It was a little late last year arriving in March, at least around the Atlanta area. The price actually went down with this latest vintage, just a few cents, but glad to see it not going the other way. Finding Premier Cru Chablis …

Aldi Winking Owl House Brand Wine: How Does it Stack Up?

We at the wine blog obviously love Costco almost more than anywhere else.  And that’s not just because of the wine.  The entirety of the product offering, great prices and unique experience make it a one of a kind shopping experience. Aldi is similar in some ways but different in others. It’s a unique shopping …

2021 Kirkland Signature Malbec Mendoza

The latest vintage of the Kirkland Malbec arriving in stores is always a welcome sight, and what we expect to see in December of each year. Similar to the Kirkland Bordeaux Superieur that we just reviewed, this bottle continues to retain its super low $6.99 price tag. With the inflation we’ve seen elsewhere, it’s surprising …

2019 Raymond Reserve Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

This is flat out delicious Napa Cabernet at a very competitive Costco price. Wine.com is selling this bottle for $47.99, in contrast to Costco’s $34.99 …

The price at Costco was $19.99, and some …

2019 Gary Farrell Russian River Selection Pinot Noir

We picked this one up to have on hand for Thanksgiving weekend and figured there’d be a good time to open what we hoped would be a tasty Pinot Noir. A lot of these Pinots can really get good when you start to spend between $30-$45. Costco’s price was $32.99, which is pretty competitive. It’s …

Whisky and Flavored Whisky Sampler

Here’s another interesting box that came our way, and it’s a bit different for this site. This is a Flavored Whisky sampler containing 12 200ml bottles. We can’t buy this (or hard liquor) at most Costco stores in Georgia (only two, Dunwoody and Alpharetta), but received it to sample from the distributor. We are also …
