Yes, even though we sell Cakebread, Caymus. Rombauer and other boutique wines, we are always on a mission to find great, inexpensive wines as well!  Frankly, we think we're doing a pretty good job of that challenge and hope you'll come by to check out our "finds".  We attend trade shows, visit wineries, and work closely with distributors to discover unique and delicious wine values to pass on to you. 

Our suggestions include:

  Stemmari Pinot Noir, Merlot, Pinot Grigio
Fantini Sangiovese 

Annalisa Moscato (Italy)
Pierre Henri Chardonnay (France)

Simple Life Chardonnay & Pinot Noir (California)
  Butternut Chardonnay
Stonecap Cabernet, Syrah and Chardonnay

Check out our WineStation!
Our WineStation is always open!  Choose a one ounce taste, a 3 ounce glass, or a 5 ounce glass of any of the wines that we're featuring.  It's a fascinating machine and well-worth trying out every time you visit our store.

Wine-Tastings with Distributors will be also be held on the weekends during special occasions.
We'll keep you posted! Check out Facebook as well.

While recently in Washington State, we had the pleasure of visiting Revelry winery and we highly recommend their wines.  Pictured are Jared Burns, winemaker and owner of Revelry, and Pam Saunders of The Kitchen Connection.

Basics of Wine

Our philosophy has always been to "drink what you enjoy".  Yes, the old rule of drinking reds with meat, and whites with fish or chicken, is certainly one by which you can live.  A Cabernet will always be perfect with Filet Mignon and a Chardonnay with Grilled Chicken.

But other factors should be considered before making your wine choice. . . the complexity and richness of the meal; the sauces, sides, and condiments to accompany the entree; and the spiciness of the overall food.  Pinot Noir pairs beautifully with Salmon or Ahi Tuna, and Riesling is fabulous with spicy Thai or Cajun cuisine.  

So come by and let us help you choose that perfect bottle of wine for a special occasion or just for pizza night.  That's what we're here for!  We have many of your tried-and-true favorites, but we also have exciting and unique options that have been personally chosen by Pam and Gail.  And remember that our wines start at $6.99!

New Wines

This lovely wine, Nine Stones Shiraz from Australia's Barossa Valley, is back.  Given 90 points by Wine Spectator, it is dark and focused, with black cherry flavors and good tannins. Regularly $17.99, it is on sale for only $15.99!

Need an everyday Chardonnay?  Try the Stonecap at only $9.99.  From California, it is medium-bodied with a bit of oak, yet is still well-balanced and smooth.

Need something truly special?  The
Sophenia Synthesis is here.  Succulent, with a surplus of rich raspberry, dark cherry and blackberry flavors with loads of spicy notes, this Argentine red blend is truly amazing.  Wine Spectator just awarded it 92 points!  At $32.99, it is worth every penny.

If you want to experiment with some lesser expensive reds, try Leese-Fitch Pinot Noir at $12.99, or the 99 Vines Pinot Noir at only $9.99!  Or take home a bottle of Hey Mambo red blend at $12.99.  
Let us help you make the right choice to please your palate and your budget.  We're here to help you with your wine needs. . . whether you're looking for champagne for a Brunch for 12, great values for a Wedding Reception for 100, or just a unique bottle for Dinner for 2, shop with us.  We might even introduce you to something new!
