We are always looking for ways to give our customers a better deal.
When we place orders from our wineries and suppliers, we try our best to gauge the best quantity to bring in. Too little, and we can potentially run out. Too much, and we can be sitting on inventory that is taking up valuable space and tying up capital.
These presells allow us to get an accurate idea of what that ‘just right’ amount of an item is. By analyzing customer interest in an item before we even place our orders, we can get a more accurate idea of how much to bring in. As a reward for our customers who make these commitments, we reward them with a nicely discounted price. Additionally, since we often handle wines that are limited availability, this rewards our customers who plan ahead, as they get first access to those more limited items.

After years of working for “the man” and all manner of corporate evangelists, battling vintage after vintage the world over, good friends John Retsas & Matt Gant started their own fermented crusade, First Drop Wines, in 2004. Amongst the best of what these guys produced are the ‘Fat of The Land’ wines.The three single vineyard Shirza from the 2012 vintage, offering different interpretations of their Barossa microclimates, are very LIMITED and were highly praised by The Wine Spectator.

‘Villa Cafaggio Scores Big 15’ Offer
Villa Cafaggio comprises 68 hectares in Panzano, in the “Conca d’Oro” (golden basin) area of Chianti Classico. The Conca d’Oro is blessed with a perfect microclimate, with a high altitude of 400 meters and majority of south facing vinyards. There are 60 hectares of vines at Cafaggio.
With the help of enologist Giuseppe Caviola and agronomist Ruggero Mazzilli, two leading names in the Italian wine industry, we have taken the quality of our wines to a level never reached before. Also the style of the wines has been fine tuned to meet the highest expectation of modern consumers which expect tradition to be combined with utmost drinkability. The Italian idiom “piacevolezza” is our credo for the years to come: the mere technical translation is “pleasantness” yet, applied to wine, it means much more: ripeness and maturity, strength and elegance, fruitiness and perfumes, readiness and longevity, all combined.

Domaine Manuel Olivier Bourgogne Offer
Manuel Olivier is part of a bright, new generation of Burgundy winemakers. He started in 1990 by growing a few acres of vineyards and today he holds 11 hectares spread across the Hautes-Côtes de Nuits, Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune. With a relatively small holding, Manuel’s ambition has led him to source more grapes from reliable long term sources. Still, his total annual production remains relatively small with less than 7000 cases produced. Manuel is a perfectionist and is in constant pursuit for improvements. His approach is one of respect for terroir. His aim is to produce wines that will express the distinctive character of the various appellations. All of his grapes are handpicked and 50% are de-stemmed. They take seven days for maceration at low temperatures prior to fermentation. He uses only natural yeasts in fermentation that takes five to six weeks at 30°C. The wines remain in contact with the lees for 18 months in 30% new Allier and Vosges barrels. The result is very approachable, subtle wines with obvious charm, displaying great delicacy of fruit and minerality. Click below for the Manuel Olivier Presell Offer.
Founded in 1865, Mommessin has been bringing the world excellent wines from Beaujolais and Burgundy since it began exporting in 1890. Through their own properties as well as long-term contracts with growers, some over 100 years old, they are able to consistently bring you exceptional wines of quality. The story behind the key: in 1889, Mommessin acquired La Grange Saint-Pierre, several ancient stone buildings in Mâcon that originally belonged to the Abbey of Cluny. The abbey’s emblem, the Key of Saint Peter, became an enduring symbol at the Mommessin winery, one that can be seen today on all our Mommessin wines.
