Wine Thieves-Go West with New York Vintners

Dear New York Vintners Friends,

Although you may say we’re a little Eurocentric in our overall wine preferences, we always keep our eyes open for new and exciting wines no matter the region or country.

We’ve gone west to California and Washington for these recent discovers from the choicest plots with extremely limited production. That might ordinarily be a recipe for expensive, cultish wines, but fortunately for us, not in this case.

We’re very happy to introduce some terrific value-conscious whites and reds from small producers whose motivations are to craft premium wines for everyday. You can step outside the EU for a night or two, and taste these new discoveries from the left coast.

Stock up now for end of the summer with a special mixed case offer exclusively for our loyal e-community.
