Santa Clara Valley Wine BargainsPosted: January 4, 2012 | Author: marga | Filed under: Wine | Leave a comment »
As I mentioned in my last post, last weekend I went wine tasting in the Santa Clara Valley. A couple of the wineries I visited had very good sales on wine they’re trying to get rid of, and I thought I’d mention them in a separate post in case you’re looking for something to serve at an event.
Sycamore Creek Vineyards has cases of their 2007 Merlot for $100, making the wines about half their usual price. This is a perfectly good wine, specially to serve a crowd, as it’s smooth, balanced and tasty, but not particularly challenging. They said they have 24 cases of the same.
Hecker Pass Winery has their Quintetto Rosso for $70 a case, less than half the individual bottle price. This, again, is a perfectly nice wine for a crowd. Stay away from their Grenache Rose, also on sale, which seems to be going bad.
