wine / vineyard clubs are the way to go

4-6 shipments per year at $50-65 per shipment, and you can add to your order with a typical 25% discount on whatever you order, and you get wine that’s not available anywhere else. I joined at Dry Creek, Peju, Sequoia Grove, Merryvale, Benziger, and Jacuzzi.

The view from our house at Benziger:

the 4 of us shipped home a total of 9 cases of hand selected wines. We rule.
I get Sequoia Grove, Seghesio, and Schramsberg. Plus you get access to special events, releases, etc.

Wine Recomendations

My favorite under $15 wine recomendation:
Estanice Cabernet Sauvingnon
Average Price $12 in VA. Available in most wine retailers
Tasting Notes:
Every year its a consistantly good bottle of wine. I have never had a bad vintage. It will easilly age for 10 years, however is always drinkable now.
