It was a challenging year as there were so many great wines to choose from. It was not quite like choosing your favorite child (or cat, or dog or person), but almost.

  • OUR FAMOUS "10 BUCK CHIC" JEANNE DE COSTE SPARKLING BRUT and ROSÉ From the South of France - Our Bargain of the Year! FOR ONLY $9.46 (listed under Sparkling Wines just above)

    We have searched far and wide throughout France to find the best wines from the best regions at the best prices. All of our wines are from small (and sometimes not so small) family owned and operated vineyards, including our Famous CHAMPAGNE POL ROGER. Actually, the Last of the "Big 10" Champagne houses to remain privately owned and not part of one of the Mega DeLuxe Perfume/Champagne/Leather/Luxury groups. I have personally chosen each and every one of these wines, (it was hard work, but somebody had to do it...) and I honestly think better French wines at better values are not to be had in the islands.

    For every wine listed on our site, I have personally tasted many, many wines to find the one that fits what I’m looking for. Of course, some favoritism is shown in my love for Bordeaux and Southwest France Reds, but I have an adventurous palate and love great Burgundies, Loires (think Sancerre), White Bordeaux, Rhones (My new passion) and other regional wines to bring to the dance for you.

    Occasional opportunities bring small quantities of wines discovered by winemakers who have put aside some special bottles for themselves or friends or good customers, and then find that circumstances have changed and they want to sell some of these “Private Collections” This is where we do best because we are small enough to buy a few hundred bottles, and not too large to require several thousand bottles. Personal relationships with these winemakers is one of our secrets. We often work with winemakers who produce only a few thousand bottles of a particular vintage, and they are kind enough to allow us a quota. Most of these wines are never sold outside of France. Please keep in mind that we try to work with SMALL, FAMILY OWNED WINERIES, some are rather Large such as Champagne Pol Roger and Maison Albert Bichot, but they maintain the spirit & attitude of a small Family Owned operation.

    Please take a few minutes to review our choices. To see the selection of RED wine, click on the "RED" tab above and follow the dropdown menu to your choice of Red Wine, such as Bordeaux etc. You will find some exceptional values; many priced at a bit more than $9 a bottle. These are quality wines at great prices

    Our sales conditions are simple:

    1. - Sold by cases of 6 bottles (May be Mixed), except, Magnums, sample boxes, Armagnacs, Spirits and Misc which may be purchased as single bottles.
    2. - Pick up your order in town at our warehouse.(Back street across from Cuzzins restaurant) We can arrange FREE Delivery for larger orders. Please call the office to see if your order qualifies

        The discovery of Champagnes Pierre Boever is high on my list of recent accomplishments. A small producer of "Grand Cru" Champagne, it is a rare find indeed as "Grand Crue" Champagnes consist of only 9% of all Champagne produced in France ! It is the VERY TOP CLASSIFICATION OF ALL CHAMPAGNES PRODUCED IN FRANCE AND CHAMPAGNE CAN ONLY BE CALLED "CHAMPAGNE" IF IT HAS BEEN PRODUCED IN FRANCE.  We have enlarged our selection of Champagne PANNIER to include Magnums. Pannier rates consistently high on blind tastings, and rated a 91 on Wine Spectator November 2011 Listings. This is a great Champagne at a reasonable price. Champagne Pannier was served at the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE CONCERT in December 2009 & is proudly served to all first class passengers on Eurostar (Euro-Tunnel) trains. Of Course we are most proud of our being appointed Exclusive Agents for Champagne Pol Roger, the Champagne of Sir Winston Churchill (One of my Heroes)

        It's Hot - Time to think about ROSÉ Our top selling wine in this group is our just recieved "ROYAL PROVENCE" a wine I discovered in Southern France last Summer. ROSÉ wines from the Cote de Provence in South of France is finest ROSÉ in the WORLD !... we carry 2 different wonderful FRENCH Rosé deProvence (We believe that this is the World's Best !!!  PERFECT FOR OUR WONDERFUL ISLAND WEATHER OUT ON YOUR BOAT, OR ROUND THE POOL WINES!

Some have already sold, so if you are interested in these investment wines, act now.

        Newsletters are now being archived on the site. Check the "NEWSLETTER" tab below to find some recent editions. New editions will be added as they appear. There are often some unique Recipes posted for your enjoyment.

          BURGUNDIES !  Our Personally Chosen Red and White Burgundies are in! In the  White Burgundy (Always 100% Chardonnay) listings we have found some of the best Burgundy has to offer; CHABLIS, Petit Chablis, Pouilly Fuisse, and the superb Queen of white Burgundies: Mersault. -- In Red Burgundy We have added GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN DOMAINE TRAPET an organic wine, NUITS SAINT GEORGES "LES ALLOTS" from DOMAINE REMORIQUET and HAUTES COTES DE NUIT "LES DAMES HUGUETTES" DOMAINE MONGEARD-MUGNERET. These Reds are all the finest. Believe me when I say that I tasted 10 Burgundy wines for every one chosen. *** 

          A wonderful find was DOMAINE DES PERELLES Beaujolais from Jean-Yves Larochette, a very small wine making family that has been cultivating Chardonnay & Gamay grapes and making small batch wines in the traditional methods for generations. This is one of my most pleasant discoveries of my 2010 Summer search for great new Burgundies. We are selling his Beaujolais Villages Red & White, Pouilly Fuisse and Macon at really inexpensive prices for such fine wines. This winemaker is a magician!

          CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE,  is listed under REDS- Southern Rhone. We now carry 3 wonderful Domaines of this AMAZING wine. Syrah Driven, peppery, Spicy, Fruity our selections of Chateauneufs are the result of trying 14 different Vintages and Variaties. I found these at reasonable prices that truely represents this great wine.

          Great values are to be had with some lesser known Southern Rhones such as VENTOUX a great wine in the Cotes du Rhone, Chateauneuf style at a surprisingly pleasant price. We have 2 excellent VENTOUX at less than $20!

          TANNATS * The Astoundingly Delicious ARAMIS Red that sold out at a recent Pistarckle wine tasting and several other times is back in stock at the same price we have been selling it for since 2008: $9.34, a FANTASTIC Value! Mr. LaPlace has Re-blended it with more Tannat and Shiraz. It's the best Aramis EVER !!! There are many new TANNAT wines as well. I think the Red wine lovers a mong you will especially appreciate the addition of ODE D'AYDIE 2012 - MADIRAN - 100% TANNAT the 2nd label of Chateau d'Aydie Madiran at only $17.21. I had a bottle of the Chateau d'Aydie 2009 the other night, and it was SUMPTIOUS. This will keep for many more years, but at 8 years old it's ready to drink and savor now.

          A bit more information on our Great CAHORS Wines: Cahors is the region that originated the famous MALBEC grape that is now the standard of Argentinean and Chilean wines. But these Cahors wines are from vines that are sometimes hundreds of years old and grown by the same winemaking families who made wine for Pope John XXII Who was born in Cahors, and ruled the Catholic Church from 1316 to 1334. These great Cahors wines - often called "black" wines for their depth of color, are the wines I have been drinking in Southwest France long before I started a wine business and it's time to share these wonderful little known wines with you. We have two great Cahors, "Le Cedre" & "Chateau du Cedre" from Pascal Verhaeghe, one of the premier winemakers of the region. While not cheap, ($23.44 and $49.71) these wines are a must for Red wine lovers to try. The addition of Chateau CHAMBERT rounds out the most complete collection of FRENCH MALBECS to be found in the Virgin Islands! - These three were recently rated No. 1,2 & 3 by Decanter Magazine

          Our great "Sleeper" winemaker; DOMAINE DE COUSSERGUES, a small family owned winemaker in the Pays d'Oc of Southern France are producing consistently high quality through all recent vintages, proving the skills of expert winemakers. You will find most DOMAINE DE COUSSERGUES selling for less than $10.00. These wines are listed under the Red or White tabs listings of Pays d'Oc. We have created a sample box (ZPK-008 listed under Wine Sample Boxes) of this winemakers red and white selection. We have also added a value assortment of regional wines priced under $60 for the 6 bottle selection that will fill the budget minded wine lovers needs- ZPK-009. This is a great way to try these new wines.

          BRANDY:
          New are our SUMPTIOUS Eau de Vie selections added under "Armganacs, Spirits and Misc" The Raspberry (Framboise) has such a beautiful fragrance, you can almost wear it as perfume...We also have Poire Williams, and Plum Eau de Vie, as well as a Tres Vieille Fine de Bourgogne, a grape distilled type of brandy. (Included in this group is the most fabulous Creme de Cassis) These are all very special.***ARTON produces some of the best ARGMANACS to be found, Argmanac, like Cognacs, is distilled from grapes, but in my opinion is a smoother, purer much better after dinner drink. Regular bottles and Magnums in gift boxes are available.
