Right about this time last year I sent a similar missive and warned you that I would do it only once. And don't get used to it!

Well, same idea again this Spring, friends. This will be the only offer of its kind for 2017. Sometimes during my travels I come across wines that make me say to myself, "Self, I'd like a few cases of these at home." You know, wines for any 'ol reason--friends dropping by unexpectedly? Done. Something to just bust open while you're cooking or barbecuing? Rack and crack it.

Guilty pleasures. Without the guilt.

Honestly, there's just not much out there at $8-9 bottle that I would shake a wine opener at. This is one of those "bonuses of membership" deals that make buying direct imports pretty fun. These are $12-13 wines that are yours for essentially the wholesale price. Love that math.

Let's go!

Domaine du Tave 'Blanc du Tave' 2016--This is a repeat performance of last year. I feared if I didn't include it somebody might get angry with me. So, I went back to Audrey Latard and asked for more. She only made a few thousand bottles, again, and happily obliged. This is a pretty darn unique white wine for a Rhône offering--pure Muscat Petit Grains (yes, it's DRY), made entirely in stainless steel, and meant to drink directly from tank, if you could do that. Make this one ice cold and let those lychee and orange rind aromas whet your appetite.

Domaine de Laguille Cotes-de-Gascogne Rouge 2016--There may be no other region in France today pumping out really, really good value wine than Gascony. The French have a word called gouleyant to describe these kinds of wines--slurpable! Guy Vignoli is a country Gascon through and through. He likes to "slurp" his red wines with a typical dinner of Cassoulet and then finish it off with Armagnac. Sounds good to me! Pure Merlot here, also made in tank, and ready for quaffing.

So here's the deal: Any mixed or solid case of the above two wines will run you just $100--no questions asked. You can order in any combination you'd like. Simply reply to this email with your request: "Six of each", "9 white, 3 red", "Case of each"--whatever your pleasure.

Or, click the links above to read more about each wine and winery, and order online. (on the product page you can easily toggle to the other wine)

I expect both wines about mid-May--ready for late Spring and for enjoying throughout the summer.

Ready. Set. Go!
