Today we are seeing winemakers and wineries rise to the challenge and offer special wines, special deals.
First up, the Napa Valley Vintners Association decided to focus on older vintages or library wines. Love it!
Here’s the announcement:
“In response to the doors of our wineries being closed, we’ve decided to open up our libraries online. Shop almost 200 NVV members as they #openthecellar and offer something rare for you. It’s a win-win-win as you support the employees and small family businesses in wine country, get a rare wine, and you don’t have to leave your couch!” https://napavintners.com/wines/openthecellar.asp
Library wines are normally held for special occasions or for club members.
So this is pretty special. Not evey wine on the list is “rare” by my definition. But 2011 Cabernets from Vineyard 29 and Paul Hobbs To Kalon are definitely rare. So too is the 08 Phelps Insignia.
Others that made my fantasy list are the 07 Pine Ridge Fortis, 09 Lang & Reed Cabernet Franc, 2010 La Sirena Cabernet and 05 La Sirena Syrah.
In addition to specific wines, a number of wineries offer multiple wines, including Corison, Hunnicutt, Paradigm, and Juslyn. All super wineries.
So if you have the bucks, check out the list and go crazy!!!
But act fast. The offer end tomorrow.
Also, kudos to wilsonartisan wines, owner of 11 wineries, for its special offer.
