Selections will range from delicious red and white "Bourgogne" to Chablis, to aged and ready to drink "premier cru" bottlings from villages such as Chambolle-Musigny and Nuits-Saint-Georges!

 

In addition to our Burgundy table, we will feature over a dozen more incredible selections from the Rhone Valley, Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti, Bandol Rose, aged German Rieslings from Joh. Jos. Prum, Austrian red and white wines, California and more!

 

All wines will be open for you to sample and will be available for purchase by the case on a pre-arrival basis with savings up to 60% below typical retail! Orders will be filled during the following week. Supply of many wines will be quite limited, so round up some friends and arrive early to get first crack at the most exciting deals!
