Kirkland Signature Prosecco Rosé

This new addition to the Kirkland wine family started appearing in stores a couple weeks back, and finally hit my store in the Atlanta area.  It was also featured in the latest issue of the Costco Connection magazine. A Prosecco Rosé almost seems like a no brainer given the wine community’s current love for bubbly …

2019 Cloudline Pinot Noir

We tasted and reviewed the 2018 vintage of the Cloudline Pinot Noir from Costco last year and really enjoyed it.  This bottle is especially appealing because it’s produced by the Drouhin Family who have been making wine in France’s Burgundy region since 1880.  So they have a little experience with Pinot Noir, and are usually …

2018 Provenance Sauvignon Blanc Rutherford

Here’s a Sauvignon Blanc I’ve always been curious about. Key word on the label is “Rutherford” which fans of the Kirkland Rutherford Cabernet will be familiar with.  It’s one of the top regions within Napa Valley, and a personal favorite. Provenance makes a delicious Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon that we’ve tasted and enjoyed; that one is …

2020 Kirkland Signature Cotes De Provence Rosé

Here’s a Kirkland bottle we’ve been waiting to arrive, especially as the weather warms up. I know a few readers have spotted it recently, so it should be making its way through stores nationwide right now. This is likely the fastest moving Costco wine that we track. If you spot it, buy it. While I …

2020 Willamette Valley Vineyards White Pinot Noir

This is perhaps the most interesting wine I’ve tasted in a long time, and it is the first time I’ve tasted a “white” Pinot Noir. I felt pretty confident in the hands of Willamette Valley Vineyards because they are experts with Pinot Noir.  We’ve highlighted quite a few of their Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs over …

2016 Famiglia Castellani Chianti Classico Reserva

It seems like people around the wine world are talking a lot about Chianti Classico at the moment.  I know one of my favorite wine writers, Eric Asimov from the NY Times, is a huge fan of them right now. We’ve always enjoyed them as well, finding a lot of quality at great prices, so …

2018 Mosquita Muerta Cordero Con Piel de Lobo Malbec

Malbec is such as good place to find value in the wine world today, so bumping into this one for $7.99 at Costco caught my interest. This bottle is $14.49 at Total Wine, and around $12 elsewhere online, so Costco’s price is amazing. The wine inside is too, making this a big time Costco winner. …

Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne Yellow Label

As we’ve been drinking more Champagne, I’ve been wanting to buy a bottle of Veuve Clicquot to see how it stacks up. I’ve had a few bottles over the years and have always enjoyed them. This Champagne is widely available and almost always in stock, at least in the stores around the Atlanta area. We …

2018 Gerard Bertrand An 825 Cremant de Limoux Brut Rose

I almost passed this bottle up thinking it was the Gerard Bertrand Thomas Jefferson Cuvee that we reviewed last year, and really enjoyed. The similarities are uncanny: the price, the label, the varietal blend, the origin (both Limoux Brut Rosé); the ABV, but different vintages, 2017 vs 2018. But then I noticed this one was …

2019 Monte Degli Angeli Piemonte Pinot Noir

Here’s a fun Costco wine find that we were super curious about.  You don’t see a ton of Italian Pinot Noir out there; plus this wine originated from Italy’s famed Piedmont region, where you also find a number of high caliber reds. The price was great at $7.49 and the Costco placard proudly displayed the …
