Platinum Wine Club: Details & Selections Of The Month

For our 20th anniversary we created the Platinum Wine Club, allowing you to explore the world of wine 2 bottles at a time. We give you a wine you probably know (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay) and then one that’s off the wall, something you would probably never pick up on your own and to take you out of your comfort zone. We have done a Txakoli from Spain, a Claret from the Columbia Valley & a Gamay Beaujolais rose from Burgundy, to name a few. You can also structure the Platinum Wine Club to fit your needs! You get a sheet, explaining the wines, where they are from, tasting notes and food pairings too.  Here’s how it works:
 
The basic membership is 2 wines a month for $30.00.
You can also do 4 wines a month for $60.00
You can just do a 2 bottle, 3 month membership for $90.00, payable in advance. The same applies for 4 bottles for $180.00, payable in advance.
You can pay for 6 months in advance and get 1 month free
You can pay for 12 months in advance and get 2 months free
You can do a quarterly membership too. Getting 2 or 4 bottles a month every 3 months (4 times a year)
If you like the wines and want to pay more, you can purchase them, during the month they are featured at a 10% discount. 
You can pay as you go, and cancel at anytime.

Goodbye 2020!

The Wine You Know: Chateau Grand Jean Bordeaux, 60 % Merlot—35% Cabernet Sauvignon—5% Cabernet Franc $15.59

The Dulan family has been making wine since the early 1700’s

Beautiful red color. Strong juicy red fruits on the nose. The mouth is supple, fruity and round with soft tannins. This wine is at its best at the right temperature between 16 and 18°C or 60 to 64 degrees Fahrenheit. Lovely everyday Bordeaux.

Food Pairings: with barbecue, grilled meats, red meats, game, duck and cheeses.

The Wine You Don’t Know: Evolucio Furmint, $12.99 a blend of 85% Furmint and 15% Hárslevelű.

Furmint (the most widely planted grape in Hungary) is one of the traditional varietals used to make Tokaj white wines and Aszù (Hungary’s version of Sauternes) when it is blended with Muscat and Hárslevelű (grapes). The name Furmint is taken from the French word “froment” for the wheat-gold color of the wine it produces. Evolúció is made from a selection of vineyards especially identified to create a well-balanced and food complementing wine. The grapes are hand harvested, destemmed, pressed gently, fermented cold in stainless steel tanks without further aging. The Furmint is blended with Hárslevelű to provide the best-balanced blend from this vintage. Bottled young to retain the freshness and natural richness from the fruits. The nose has intense aromas of green apple, pear, nectarine, pineapple and some floral notes. This wine is the definition of unctuous, with apricot & cantaloupe flavors, great acidity & texture. I love it!

Food Pairings: Any fish, white meats & spicy dishes, roast pork and chicken & apple pie!
