These great values are about to disappear.
Fosters, which owns these wineries today, is ending the case price discounts it has on these wines.
I’ve started buying more and more good wines by the case to take advantage of better prices and pass the savings on to you…….unfortunately, as of Feb. 1st, the case discounts on these wines are over!
Now, you don’t have to buy these by the case to get this price, but, I do!
If you want any of this, let me know ASAP. I’ve put the quantity I have in
