Welcome to our September Sauce Hound newsletter! As you probably know, we love to carry high-value wines in the $15 to $35 range. We’re always sniffing out good deals on wines that “punch above their weight.” Well, throughout September we are spotlighting seven that fit the bill perfectly. These aren’t cellar candidates, just great everyday wines with loads of character.
And best of all, we’re offering these at reduced prices for a limited time (until Oct. 1), so you get even more bang for your buck. Of particular note are the organic Tempranillo from Evohe in Spain and Sauvingnon Blanc-Semillon from Lock & Worth in BC’s Okanagan. It’s not often you can get this quality of organic wine for less than $25.
Hope to see you soon!
