2018 Antiche Terre Venete Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG

We thought it might be time to revisit this popular Costco Amarone.  The last time we reviewed it was back with the 2016 vintage that we enjoyed and gave 89 points. We have a similar story with the 2018 vintage that is in Costco stores right now.  The price did go up $1 to $23.99, …

2021 Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars AVETA Sauvignon Blanc

We love seeing new bottles from Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars hit the shelves at Costco and this AVETA Sauvignon Blanc is one that we’ve never seen before, at least around the Atlanta area Costco stores we frequent. Previously, as far as white wines go from Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars, we’ve reviewed and enjoyed their Karia …

2018 Chateau Faugeres Calice de Faugeres Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

We thought this one might overdeliver and it does. This is a great Costco wine find. We’re big Bordeaux fans, and for $20, this is a score. Online the price seems to be closer to the $28 range, so it appears Costco’s bringing it in at a competitive buy. Suckling has gone in the low …

2016 Bodegas Sierra Salinas Mira Salinas Alicante

There are quite a few interesting things about this bottle we found at Costco, which we’ve never seen before. First is the mistake on the Costco placard, labeling this wine as a Rioja, which would lead you to believe it was comprised of Tempranillo. But the wine is actually from Alicante and is comprised of …

2020 Kirkland Signature Napa Valley Red Blend

Here’s a popular Kirkland wine hitting stores right on schedule, usually in the Sept-Oct timeframe. We’ve heard from several readers who found this wine weeks before we did, so hopefully it’s beginning to make its way into more stores. Two things right off the bat. Yes, the price stayed the same at $10.99. That’s a …

2022 Costco Wine Advent-ure Calendar

It’s hard to believe it’s that time already, but here we are just closing out summer and bam, we get the Costco wine advent calendar hitting stores, alongside Christmas trees and holiday decorations.

2018 Mosquita Muerta Pispi Blend de Tintas

We dropped this one in the cart just for purposes of exploration for this site. We’ve never seen or tasted this Argentinean red blend before. On the placard you’ll see the 92 points the wine received from Wine Advocate. We couldn’t find a true retail price for the bottle. Online it really varies but most …
