Let’s be honest: as much as we’d all like to drink a $100 bottle of wine each night, for most of us, that isn’t an option. So, what’s a wine lover to do?

 

Well, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best wines in our shop – all under $20. Each of these wines represents a great value and have been our favorites for a long time. Now, we want to share them with you! If you see something you like, you can now buy it online and pick it up in store! 

Alexander Valley Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

Coming it at just under $20, this Alexander Valley Cabernet is a stunner for its price. Lots of plum, blackcurrant, and raspberry flavors give this wine all the body it needs to pair with everything from grilled pork to steak! For those looking for a Napa Cabernet without the Napa price tag, you’ll be hard pressed to look for a better value than this.

Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon

South America produces some excellent wines, and just as importantly, those wines are often great values. The Los Vascos Cabernet is bursting with ripe fruit flavors and firm tannins that make it the perfect everyday-drinker. We like pairing it with BBQ, grilled meats, and roasted veggies.

Calera Central Coast Chardonnay

Balance is the name of the game with Chardonnay, and it can be tricky to find a wine at a lower price point that walks the fine like of ripe fruit and oak barrel aging. This Central Coast Chardonnay from Calera does exactly that with ripe apple and lemon flavors and a subtle hint of vanilla and toast flavors from the time it spent in oak.

Juan Gil Silver Label

Wine made from lesser known grapes can also be a great place to look for hidden gems and high-value wines. This Spanish wine is made of 100% Monestrell (known as Mourvedre in France), and we’re in love with its blackberry and violet aroma. It’s perfect for cooking out or enjoying by itself during a night in.

Broadbent Vinho Verde

It’s hard to beat a $8.99 bottle of wine, right? Vinho Verde is a young, slightly spritzy white wine from northern Portugal that’s loaded with citrus flavors and crisp acidity. This has become our go-to wine for warm afternoons in the summer.

Lago Rosé

Yes-way rosé! It’s high rosé season and whether you’ve been drinking pink for yours or have yet to have a sip, this is a rosé full of ripe raspberry and strawberry flavors. It’s perfect for sipping out by the pool with friends. This might just be our wine of the summer!

We love Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley! We love discovering all the ways winemakers showcase their wines. We often get asked if we have a favorite…well, “all of them” isn’t a good answer, so we tried to narrowed it down. Here are the Napa wineries that anyone who loves Cabernet Sauvignon should be drinking. Trust us, we think you’re going to find something on this list you’ll like!

Chappellet

When the Chappellet family settled on the rocky slopes of Napa’s Pritchard Hill, they became the first winery to plant vineyards exclusively on high-elevation hillsides. From these Pritchard Hill vineyards, the Chappellets have been crafting extraordinary, age-worthy wines since 1967. Pritchard Hill’s rugged terroir has become legendary for producing wines with great intensity and depth—qualities that define the world’s finest Cabernet Sauvignons. As a result, Chappellet wines have consistently received the highest praise from critics, and are sought after by the world’s premier collectors. Today, a second generation of the family has joined their parents in embracing the romance of Pritchard Hill.

Round Pond Estate

Owned and operated by the McDonald family, Round Pond Estate made a name for itself by selling fruit to other wineries. Once the family decided to begin to make their own wines, it didn’t take long for the rest of Napa Valley to take notice! Located in the heart of Napa’s famous Rutherford AVA, the winery produced several different Cabernet Sauvignon based wines. Kith & Kin is a lively and complex wine with deep berry flavors and a hint of spice. Their Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep and brooding wine, with plum, dark chocolate, and raspberry flavors.

Honig

In 1964, Louis Honig purchased a 68-acre ranch in Rutherford, in the heart of the Napa Valley. The vineyard was planted with Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, which he sold to neighboring wineries. Louis worked to create a family gathering place at the ranch, for his children and grandchildren, while he dreamed of the day he could retire from his San Francisco advertising agency and make wine from his vineyard. In 1984, at the age of 22, grandson Michael Honig took over management of the vineyard and winery. The Honig family are leaders in sustainability, both in the vineyard and the winery, and what began as a small “garage” winery has today become a successful family enterprise, with everyone working collaboratively to run an inspiring and socially responsible business.

Faust

Dark and brooding like its namesake, Faust Cabernet Sauvignon was founded by Augusten Huneeus to showcase the beauty of Napa Valley fruit. We love this wine for powerful blackberry, plum, and cassis. One of our go-to wine for steak night, it’s now in near constant rotation around our dinner table.
