Dear Friends and Wine Lovers,
I would like to convey our warmest wishes to you and yours during this busy Holiday Season on behalf of the entire staff at Le Dû's Wines.
I would also like to let you know that should you need any help or ideas choosing your corporate or personal gifts, please think of us and
consider giving wine. We would be more than happy to guide you with some amazing selections.
Last week ‘Grub Street’ New York Magazine’s online food blog published an article entitled
‘How to Buy New York Food Gifts Without Pants’. Chosing the best online purveyors for fruit, bacon, smoked fish, steak..they
recommended Le Du’s as the top online source for wine. Here’s what they wrote...
"New York is blessed with many great wine stores, but Le Dû's Wines is currently running what we
think might be one of the city's best bargains: twelve "everyday" bottles for $144.99. This being Le Dû, what's called everyday is actually
extraordinary: "It's harder to find an everyday bottle with good varietal character than an expensive bottle," says manager Andy Shernoff.
"You have to filter through a lot more crap." And filter they have!"
Great Value Meets Great Flavor Case is still available for $144.99 with free delivery in Manhattan.
This sale runs from Monday December 4th to Sunday December 10th only. Please order
on-line or by e-mailing us at
Alternatively, if you would prefer to speak with a human, call us on 212-924-6999
