Reverse Wine Snob investigates whether Cameron Hughes is the best value in wine in this special sponsored post featuring an exclusive discount for readers!
We’ve long been big fans of Cameron Hughes Wine, recommending everything from Napa Valley and Atlas Peak Meritage under $20 to $12 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir to an $11 Crozes-Hermitage to a Super Tuscan and even a Brunello! We routinely checked our local Costco for when these wines made their debut because they typically sold out within days.
What you may not realize is that Cameron Hughes is no longer sold in Costco, they are now only available online. This means you can simply order direct from Cameron Hughes Wine and have your pick of their best wines anytime you’d like!
The Cameron Hughes model has always been about keeping prices as low as possible. That’s why they meet with producers all over the world, sometimes buying wine in the barrel other times buying wine already bottled. It’s also why they many of their deals can’t be made unless they agree to keep the original winery a secret so as not to damage anyone’s reputation with such low prices. It’s also why they cut out the middleman to bring wine directly to you and that includes ordering directly from their website.
One of the things we’ve always wondered about the Cameron Hughes model; however, was whether it would be able to stand the test of time. Was it just a by-product of oversupply during the recession or could Cameron Hughes continue to find these excellent deals once the economy turned around? The answer to that question is an emphatic “Yes!” much to the delight of Reverse Wine Snobs everywhere.
Cameron Hughes recently sent me a selection of wines to taste through and I was delighted in both the quality and the breadth of wines that they find. With over 30 new wines released a year there’s something for everyone!
My favorites included a Washington State Red Mountain red blend, a Rogue Valley Oregon Pinot Noir, Albarino from Rias Baixas, Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay from Eola-Amity Hills in the Willamette Valley and more. A quick perusal of their website also shows delights such as a Howell Mountain Meritage and a Napa Valley Marsanne/Roussanne white blend as well as excellent everyday wines such as Columbia Valley Cab and Lodi Zin. We’ll have reviews of a couple of our favorites coming up in the next few weeks but in the meantime sit back, relax and shop the Cameron Hughes website with this special deal!
