Santa Clara Valley Wine Bargains

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.
