Bruno Michel "Blanche" Brut Champagne $34.99One of our best non-vintage Champagnes, this organically grown blend of half each Chardonnay and Meunier comes entirely from Bruno Michel's estate. It has been aged for six years on the lees and shows wonderful natural toasty quality as well as incredible vibrance! This was the big hit of our most recent staff Champagne tasting and we think you will love it too.

Spanish & Portuguese Wine News: Spanish Tastings in all three stores Saturday January 12th!

By: Joe Manekin | K&L Spanish & Portuguese Wine Buyer

Greetings and Happy New Year!

Let's get down to brass tacks and get you up to speed on the latest and greatest.

-Spanish tasting in all stores Saturday January 12th!

As always, we will be featuring many new faces and likely at least one older, old school Rioja to enjoy (BTW, this is not the hip-hop older than 5 years definition of old school, I mean older than 20 years). Here is our link with times for each store:

-Three picks under $10

I know I am biased. However, Spain continues to produce the best value wine under $10. My colleagues here and elsewhere in the wine business would likely agree with that. Here are three that will not break the bank, and will satisfy your need to replenish your "drink now" stocks of wine after the busy holiday season.

 

Bodegas Puelles Blanco Rioja - $9.99

2011 Bodegas Riojanas Canchales Joven Rioja - $9.99

2009 Riotajo Tempranillo Garnacha Vinos de Madrid - $9.99

Rare, Galician wines from the Monterei D.O.

 

Saludos, y salud,

Joe
