How’s your cellaring going during this sustained time at home?  How’s your wine consumption?  Both mine are up!!!!


Here are three great sources I’ve been enjoying in the US.


1)    Porthos – The Wine Insiders (San Rafael, California).  With a great personalised concierge service – Rebecca Rodriguez works with us and is a wizard on hard to find, small, boutique Bordeaux, Burgundies and Super Tuscans.  We discovered them via American Express Centurion who recommended them.


2)    Total Wine.  A complete contrast.  America’s Wine and Spirits Superstore.  8,000 wines, 3,000 spirits, 2,500 beers.  Great pricing.  Great service.  Great selection of Bordeaux at every price point.  Huge warehouse locations – three outlets close by us in Arizona.  A monthly treat visit (masked and social distanced of course!).


3)    Wally’s Wine – A Santa Monica / Beverly Hills hybrid. Wine store, wine bar, café/restaurant, brilliant up-scale selections.  Check out their newly acquired Masterpiece Collection – a private collection.
