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.
Susan’s Fine Wine and Spirits Wine Club Selections
THE 2015 TORRES 5G GRANACHAS The 2015 is a blend of Granacha (also known as Grenache) from 5 different parcels in the Campo de Borja region of Spain. Campo de Borja is immediately adjacent to the more famous regions of Rioja and Navarra. The Moncayo mountain—in the middle of Campo de Borja—influences the soil and climate of the region and produces several micro-climates. The blend in the 5G is designed to represent the various micro-climates and to pay homage to the five generations of the Torres wine-making family. The 5G Granachas is fragrant and comes across like a joven (meaning young) Rioja. The wine is medium bodied, with notes of red cherry, raspberry and currents. Its soft and subtle tannins make it a wine that drinks well by itself. It also goes well with Mediterranean dishes such as meat stews,…
THE 2016 JEAN LEON 3055 CHARDONNAY As a young man in Spain, Jean Leon had two dreams: to own a luxurious restaurant and to create exceptional wines bearing his name. He stowed away on a ship to New York when he was 19. He worked as a New York cab driver and landed a job as a waiter in a restaurant owned by Frank Sinatra and Joe DiMaggio. Here he met the brightest stars of Hollywood, struck up a friendship with James Dean and established the most luxurious restaurant in Beverly Hills at that time. He then focused on creating wines that would satisfy his VIP clients at his restaurant. He started by planting French grape varietals—Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay—in the Pendès region of Spain. The winery, founded in 1963, was in the style of a Bordeaux château….
