90-Point Chardonnay over 60% off! A combination of aging in new oak (20%) and stainless steel (80%) combine to create a beautifully balanced Red Hills Lake County wine, the Vigilance Chardonnay.
The maker (Shannon Family of Wines) behind our very popular Vigilance Cimarron Red Blend deal returns with this highly recommended Chardonnay at a huge discount.
We also return to one of our favorite value spots, the Red Hills of Lake County. The good folks at Wine Enthusiast agree, giving this $30 wine a score of 90 points.
Today's 6-pack deal; however, slashes that price by 60%, netting you 6 bottles of the 2019 Vigilance Chardonnay for just $71.99 ($12 a bottle).

From the winery:
To retain and balance the freshness of fruit with the delicate oak and butter notes on the finish, we ferment 20% on new oak and 80% in stainless steel tanks.
Lush flavors of fresh pear, citrus and spice combined with lightly toasted oak complete this Chardonnay.
Rich and fruitful, this Chardonnay pairs with herbed clam linguini or the best of friends and a sunny porch.
Produced and Bottled by Shannon Ridge Family of Wines
The 2019 Vigilance Chardonnay begins with a very pleasing aroma of citrus, pear, tropical fruit, lemon and a touch of butter. It's a nice start that just gets better from there.
Tasting the medium-bodied wine reveals it to be smooth and rich in the mouth. Featuring similar fruit to the nose plus melon, lemon custard and more, this is quite delightful. With good structure and good balance, this is a nice all around Chardonnay.
It ends dry, long and tangy.

Here's what people are saying about our Insider Deals:
"Hi Jon, Best thing I ever did is buy wine thru you...not been disappointed with any of them! Thank you SO MUCH!"
"I am seriously considering having the Insider Deals as my primary go-to. Why did I not do this sooner? Thank you"

"I love this wine I bought from you!!!! Thanks for doing what do do!!!"
"This an absolutely amazing wine, Jon. And $5 shipping for four bottles? You've outdone yourself!"
"Thanks Jon. We already drank all 6 of the first order so we were ecstatic to see you offering it again. My wife and I both love it."
"You are a man after my own heart. I have always looked for the best and least expensive wine and you just made it easier. Cheers!"
"Hi Jon, well, I did something people have warned about - bought 6 bottles and should have bought 12!"
"Have had nothing but great bottles since I started ordering your recommendations. Thanks so much! "
"We've gotten in on three of the deals and have been VERY happy with the value. I originally was going to do a wine club thing but the insider deal appeals to me much more."
"The $5 or $10 shipping on the Insider Deals is another great part of the deal. We recently paid $27 to a winery in California to ship 6 bottles (same packaging as the insider deals)....yikes!"
"Just got my 6 bottles and having my first glass. WHY, WHY didn't I buy a case??!!"
