Welcome to a long overdue weekly wrap-up!
First up I need to explain the lack of Weekly Wrap-ups (and attention to the blog in general) the last few weeks. You see my wife and I just adopted a baby boy! His due date was late August but the little dude was so excited about the whole thing that he decided to come 6 weeks early! This meant he had to spend a couple weeks in the NICU before he was allowed to come home (much to the chagrin of his big sisters). This wouldn’t have been so bad except that he was born in NC and we live in MN. This meant we had a rather extended vacation, especially when you add in the extra week or so we had to stay in NC after he was discharged to finalize everything. Needless to say we’re glad to be getting things back to the (new) normal very soon so bear with me as we get things back up to speed here at the site. And please welcome little Ezekiel (Zeke or Z for short) to The Reverse Wine Snob household.
This Week’s Deals:
Lot18 had the excellent Leone d’Oro Montepulciano (I Smell Bacon!!) for one day earlier this week. This is definitely one to watch for as it pops up every once in awhile on Lot18. We gave this vintage a 9/10 on our taste rating scale. New signups get $10 off their first order with this link.
Lastly, have you checked out our sponsor, MarketView Liquors? They have a great selection of excellent wine under $10, and their prices on wine are almost the lowest you can find on the net:
