What Jim’s Drinking: Bin Ends

What Jim’s Drinking: Bin Ends

As promised, I have put together a fairly eclectic collection of bin end items. Just what are bin ends? Typically they are either the end of a product line or the last case or two of a vintage. Sometimes, it’s a broken case that we had to purchase from a retailer that has a few good bottles in it. All of these are great quality and products. The quantities though are often very small. If there is something that you are interested in, please contact me to secure your order – first come, first served. Read more

What Jim’s Drinking: January

Well, we made it through the Christmas Season and all of the great parties and get togethers with friends and family. Now it’s time to kick back a bit more this month; drinking wines that are a bit easier on the pocket is definitely a focus for most! As usual, I have chosen what I believe are value wines that suit January and that are under $20; some WELL under $20. I have also chosen wines that are out of the “regular” stuff. Wines that you perhaps wouldn’t normally go to search out. The nice thing about these choices though, is that the easy price point of these makes it easier to experiment! You can still drink well on a budget. Read more

What Jim’s Drinking: Case Lot Offer

With Christmas now almost around the corner, I am starting to get requests to put some case lot selections together for friends. I enjoy doing this but, since it’s my busy time of year, I’m all about efficiency! I have put together two different case offers – a 6-pak case that contains 4 red wines and 2 white wines, and a more premium 12 pak case with 6 reds, 5 white wines and a bottle of Port. I have placed only 1 bottle of each wine in each case; no repeats here, since I have included some of my own top picks that you have probably never heard of or seen before! The idea here is for you to experience wines outside of your norm, without getting too crazy; I haven’t included anything that is ‘weird’ (not really weird, anyway), just items in my portfolio that are little gems and that offer great value for dollars spent.
