2017 CHÂTEAU CAMPUGET ROSÉ Château de Campuget in Costieres de Nimes is a beautiful wine property dating back to 1640. The soil is typical for the region, with many stones that force roots to find water deep in the lower layers of clay, contributing additional character to the wine. This family property is managed by winemaker Franck-Lin Dalle, named after one of his father’s heroes, Benjamin Franklin.

Susan's Wine Club
Do you enjoy exploring different wines, wineries, vintages, appellations, and varieties? Would you like to save money on each wine purchase? Then, Susan’s Wine Club is for you. Each month, we carefully select two different wines for your enjoyment. The selection usually includes one white and one red, but we’ll occasionally mix it up by possibly including a rosé or a sparkling wine. At the beginning of each month, your wines are packaged, we notify you by e-mail and you’re charged $29.99 for these two bottles. You can come by the store any time and pick them up. We even hold them for you if you’re out of town.
The wines we select are chosen to help expand your taste, your experience. They might be varieties you’ve never encountered before, or they might be from regions you never would have considered. The wine-club selections are always delightful, quality choices and are a great value with the normal shelf price of each typically ranging from $16.99 to over $20. And you get both for $29.99. The wine club offers additional benefits:
- Wine Club members get a 10% discount on all wine purchases regardless of quantity.
- Wine Club members get discounts and priority access to limited-seating seminars.
- Occasionally, wineries make promotional items available to us and we give those to Wine Club members.
- Membership can be cancelled or even suspended at any time, so part-year residents can enjoy Wine Club membership.

2015 LOUIS LATOUR ARDÈCHE CHARDONNAY Maison Loius Latour is considered one of the most innovative producers in Burgundy while still maintaining its traditional image. With a view to expanding their business, the valley of the Ardèche River, with its clay and limestone soils, was chosen in 1979 as the ideal location to produce a top-quality chardonnay.

This 100% chardonnay was fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats until malolactic fermentation was complete. The wine was then aged in stainless steel for 8 to 10 months before being... View Article
