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 $34.99 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 $34.99. 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.

2018 GÉRARD BERTRAND CIGALUS BLANC This classic Rhône white blend is a blend of 80% Chardonnay, 15% Viognier and 5% Sauvignon Blanc. The vineyard is managed biodynamicaly. Great care is and attention is taken to achieve a healthy harvest with moderate yields. Each grape varietal is harvested when the grapes have reached optimum ripeness. The grapes are pneumatically pressed and 70% of the juice is fermented in new barrels while 30% is fermented in stainless steel. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged for 6 months in new French oak barrels. The result is a brilliant, clear golden yellow wine. The nose is an intense, complex bouquet of ripe citrus fruit (grapefruit), peach, honey, and dried fruit, along with a toasted note. On the palate the wine is full and silky, with ample notes of vanilla, toast, butter, and tropical…
