Hi, I regret to say I’m new to this blog, wish I knew about you ages ago. That being said, I have found some AMAZING wines at Costco based off of info I’ve found here. And sadly, when I went back less than a week later, those wines were gone. Would you consider creating a list of general timeframes when your yearly favorites make their initial appearance at Costco? I’d like to know what to look for and when so I don’t miss finding more favorites that I can get only certain times of the year. Thanks for your consideration!

Glad you are enjoying the site. Happy to have you following us. We try to list the approx timeframe in our reviews when we can. For Kirkland wines we keep this story updated which you might find interesting in regards to the timing of certain wines

Have you tried M 2021 cabernet sauvignon by Mac & Billy Cellars in Paso Robles, CA? It's $19.99 per bottle and was given a rating of 95 points. Couldn't pass it by at that price and rating. Haven't tried it yet. Found it a few days ago at the Henderson, Nevada Costco.

Is there a grid showing wines tasted, name, score, variety, vintage, tasting date? The website is easy to navigate, but the grid would be a great quick reference.

Great website. Thank you for putting it out here. Lots of great info I reference frequently. Cheers!

@Editor, Cool! Thank you.

We need to update it but we did a grid for all the Kirkland wines. You can find that one here. Would love to do something for all the bottles if we find the time.

Hi, I recently read your book on French wine and enjoyed it. I would like to pick up a copy of the Italian wine book too. The amazon page for your book lists the publication date as 2014, but then in the book description the first sentence reads "updated for 2022!" ( Just wanted to make sure I'm not on the wrong link within amazon and buying the old edition -- I seemed to get burned on amazon often enough buying one thing and then having something else show up in the mail. Has anything with that Italian wine book changed since it was initially published? If so can you provide the link for the most recent edition. Thanks

I ordered the paper copy of the Decoding Italian Wine book from the amazon link I included above and as you suggested the inside cover says copyright 2022. If you want to email me a PDF that would be much appreciated. The PDF copy would be handy at the wine store when trying to sort through the Italian wines. Thanks!

Hi Russell, glad to hear you enjoyed our French wine book. We actually are in the process of updating the Italian one. I believe right now the print version is updated so if you were planning on buying that you should be all set. The Kindle is still being formatted. If you run into any problems let me know and I can email you a PDF too
