Dear Friends and Wine Lovers,
The Pillar Box, created by our friend, Australian winemaker Chris Ringland has consistently been our top selling red wine. The price certainly
gets people to give it a shot, but there’s a reason they keep coming back. It’s the voluptuous mouthfeel and tremendous depth of flavor. I
don’t know if there is a wine in this price class with riper black fruits, a wider array of spices or richer chocolate flavors. In the new issue of the
Wine Advocate, Robert Parker calls the Pillar box, “an unbelievable value... this wine clearly over-delivers”.
That’s 91 points for a $10.99 bottle of wine... if you buy a case the price goes down to an amazing $9.34 a
bottle. Special Sale Price - $112.10 per case!!!

Italian Wine Extravaganza - Saturday, November 4th from 3-6pm
Marc de Grazia Tasting Featuring Piedmont Winemaker Alfio Cavallotto
Marc de Grazia has been importing fine Italian wines to the USA since 1980. His list of producers is a virtual who’s who of the greatest Italian
growers. Join us this Saturday from as one of his top winemakers, Alfio Cavallotto, pours us some of his finest Barolo’s.
We will also be showcasing wines from Marc de Grazia’s own estate, Terre Nere, located on the slopes of
Mount Etna in Sicily. You must try his “Guardiola” 2004. The grapes are sourced from the highest red grape vineyard in all of Europe. And get this...
a good percentage of these vines are pre-phylloxera and up to 200 years old... unbelievable!! That’s why Robert Parker called his
wines "a revelation".
Folks, it doesn’t stop there... we will also be pouring these Italian classics...
