Last Minute Holiday Wines

Time's ticking, but we've got you covered.

If you're in a real hurry and can't take the time to search the store, but you want to know you're choosing some wonderful wines, check out the display by the Customer Service desk. It's loaded with "can't-go-wrong" selections.

There are so many special wines in the store, and a couple I've tried lately have reminded me how much I like blends.

I couldn't resist the value and ratings on the d'Arenberg The Stump Jump Red from Australia. It's a blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre that jumps out of the glass with a nose of red velvet cupcake but on the palate has notes of everything from spice to currant to dark cherry - it's soooo goooood - and just $10.97/bottle. Look for it on the Highly Rated rack in the middle of the store or in the Australia section.

Then there's the fabulous Chenin Blanc + Viognier blend from Pine Ridge Vineyard in California. The description on our website says it all: Crisp, bright, and vivacious, this wine is an aromatic white blend boasting a bouquet of honeysuckle, lemon & lime, yuzu, and ginger spice. A stand-out wine at a(nother) great price - $13.21.
