To celebrate Halloween we have built, we hand built it, a display piece called the Cellar of the Devil, which is the exact english translation for the wine Casillero del Diablo. Self proclaimed the wine of Halloween, Casillero del Diablo, part of the Concha y Toro Winery, has become not only a house hold name, but the wine to buy during the month of October. Usually selling for $10.99, Casillero will be sold at $7.98 per bottle for the month of October, but only those that dare enter the cellar will have the privilege of buying it at that price.
The list is called ‘Collector’s Corner’ and it will feature limited, time-sensitive offers of some of the very best wines from the best growers in the best appellations.
If you are serious about wine, we guarantee there will be something to pique your interest on a regular basis. As we get to know your interests, there may also be opportunities to notify you of specific items that meet your criteria as they become available in the fine and rare market.

We would like to thank everyone who stopped by on Saturday to put their vote in at the California Chardonnay Blind Tasting. Due to a three way tie between wines 1, 3 and 5, we will not be adding any of the Chardonnays into our line-up at the moment. We will attempt another tasting later on using the three wines, and at that time select a winner. We will keep you posted as to when the next tasting will take place.
9 hand selected wines from your favorite experts, Nic and Nic, showcase high ratings, intriguing varietry and great prices (all under $20!).
These aren’t just any old value wines. This is exciting and interesting stuff from around the world. The wines were specifically chosen for their quality and are not generally available at other stores. In our unending search for new and intriguing wines we have turned up some great buys. The selection changes as small production wines go out of stock, so there is always something new to try. It’s fun, it’s easy and it’s great wine!
