Ventisquero SB - Label Ventisquero 2013 Sauvignon Blanc Riserva, Casablanca Vly, Chile, $11.99
I was skeptical of the vintage.  Don’t worry – there’s a lot of happy beneath this cork.  On the crisp side, reach for this refreshing wine after you work up a good heat!

Fossiles - Gamay Label Vind des Fossiles 2001 Gamay Vielles Vignes, Cuvee Font-Grain, $19.99
The seashell on the label depicts the limestone vineyard from which it sprang, this light red wine is perfect when slightly chilled and paired with your favorite summer bites.

What Wine Lovers are Saying

  • I can't tell you how much I look forward to receiving 2 new bottles ever other month. The fact that there is someone out there doing what you do provides a sense of looking forward and excitement...hope you keep it up! ~ Seth Pariser
  • Dave - a quick note to tell you how much my wife and I enjoy the wines you send us. Your wine club has consistently sent great tasting wine from the very beginning - and that is quite a record, seeing as I was one your inaugural members back in 2005. So keep up the great job - both you and your club have exceeded my expectations. ~ Mo
  • The arrival of a Sideway's Wine Club shipment is doubly exciting. Not only do I get great wine - but the recipes are out of this world!!! ~ L. Hyde
  • Dave - I make it a priority to try the recipes from each shipment and have yet to be disappointed. I've even shared them with my butchers! ~ Liesl H.

So I wasn’t too worried when I read the headline “Weed Killer Could Be Lurking In Some […]
