Order Wine

Ordering Online

Since national efforts to contain the Covid 19 virus are unlikely to let us return to our weekly wine tasting format for some time (sigh!), we are taking steps to develop a modest online shopping platform for our wine club members. As most of you know, we have always embraced our Duty as First Responders in Wine Emergencies, and take that responsibility Very Seriously! We all have to Stand for Something, and we choose to Take a Stand for Your Right to Wine by letting ordering it On Line!

Below is a partial list of wines currently  in stock (with tasting notes) which we think offer a lot of quality per dollar. Some are relatively new on our shelves and some are longtime favorites. To place your order, look through the list; make a note of the wines/quantities you want; and then use the Contact Us form to send us your order. (BTW, it works pretty well to copy each wine name from the list and just paste it into the text box in the order form!)

Should that fail, we are happy to take orders over the phone as well!

We can do this! Yes, we Can!!

Cheers!

Rich and Pat
