Customer Choice Awards Wine Collection of Your Favorites.
Last month, we asked customers to share with us their favorite wines. Hundreds of you voted (a big thanks) and now, we’re delighted to announce the 12 winning wines — at a very special price, as promised — less than $20 a bottle for each favorite.
What can you expect among the winners? There’s the Barbanera family’s gold-medal-winning Super Tuscan red, Don Brady’s barrel-aged California Cabernet, Bill Knuttel’s fine Russian River Valley Chardonnay … and it was no surprise to see Opi Sadler’s mighty Waxed Bat topping the charts. A HUGE hit with critics and your clear No. 1 with so much black fruit flavor.
Our most popular wines in one limited-edition case — please act NOW for your share.
The Waxed Bat
Opi Sadler’s HUGE favorite, The Waxed Bat is back, but this time, with a chocolaty twist. It’s a slightly different take on his original, but every bit as sumptuous, rich and steak-ready. We predict Opi’s already impressive medal tally is about to go

Last remaining cases of Australia’s hugely popular, award-winning Durif-Shiraz. Order today and SAVE.
Château Millegrand-Mourral Minervois Grande Réserve
You’re in for a treat with this superb Grande Réserve from France’s deep South. Owned by the Bonfils family, the acclaimed Château Millegrand-Mourral is at the forefront of the quality revolution that’s taking place in the Languedoc.
HJ Fabre Malbec Reserva
Tall, dark Malbec seeks good steak. Direct from Argentina’s 2010 Winemaker of the Year (voted by a panel of 40 Masters of Wine). Taste for yourself why Hervé Fabre is such a superstar.
Saracosa Rosso di Toscana
Like all top Chianti makers, Simona Barbanera also crafts a ‘Super Tuscan’ red (marrying cherry-rich Sangiovese with Cabernet). Gold in Berlin, and a sure-fire hit at your next dinner party, if you’re quick enough to secure a few bottles …
The Holdings Cabernet Sauvignon
The sunny vineyards of Paso Robles produce super-ripe, premium-class Cabernet and, with less lofty land prices than Napa, offer superb value … which is why it’s one of the fastest-growing regions in California.
Torre Ercilla Reserva Rioja
From the Murúa family (makers of our best-selling ‘regular’ Rioja) and their new boutique winery. One taste and you’ll see why 2006 was rated ‘very good’ by Riojan authorities.
Champ des Etoiles Pinot Noir
Le Champs des Etoiles is a ripe, fragrant Pinot Noir from prime southern French vineyards. Jean-Marc trained at Bordeaux First Growth Château Haut-Brion where he became an expert at crafting and blending satin-smooth reds.
Vina Baccana Pinot Grigio
Pinot Grigio: there’s nothing more crisp or powerfully thirst-quenching. And this tongue-tingling, fresh 2010 from an Italian white wine master is no exception.
Split Rock Riesling
New Zealand Riesling is the wine everyone wants to try. This explosively juicy example comes from Decanter World Wine Awards trophy winners (also father and son) Hermann and Chris Seifried.
William Knuttel RRV Chardonnay
The legendary Bill Knuttel is a top name in Sonoma, but his favorite style recalls the opulence of fine white Burgundy.
There’s no better introduction to the lush vineyards of South Africa’s Western Cape than a cool glass of Gooseberry Bush from the five-star Bon Courage estate.
