And now onto our recap of the week. Monday brought the special deal we mentioned above: Get a free bottle of wine and free shipping on your first order from Club W, exclusively through The Reverse Wine Snob!
On Tuesday we enjoyed a Super (fruity) Tuscan, the Frescobaldi Remole Toscana 2010 – A Juicy Berry Bomb.
Wednesday we featured the McManis Family Vineyards Barbera 2011 – A Little Bit of Italy Right Here in America. A bottle of Barbera and a pizza for around 20 bucks? We like it!
On Thursday we highlighted perhaps the most elusive of all wines, an economical Nebbiolo: Cantine San Silvestro Brumo Nebbiolo d’Alba 2009 – An Everyday Italian. We also unveiled an exciting new program for wineries and wine brands looking for importers and distributors:Beverage Trade Network Wine 360 – Get Discovered!
It was a BULK BUY Friday with the smooth, smoky and spicy Borsao Berola 2008 – Absolutely Fabulous!
And finally on Saturday we ended with a splurge, the Hahn Estates Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 2010 – Silky, Spicy, Smoky and Delicious.
