If you're like us, you have been opening more bottles than usual and your wine supply is starting to dwindle. We started eyeing a few bottles that are WAY past their prime last night and realized, wait, let's refill from our winery partners! It's a win-win...we all get great deals on wine, and we support these businesses and their employees while they aren't open for visitors. Ordering directly from wineries has become easier AND more affordable than ever, with almost every winery offering a discount and/or nearly free shipping.

For a complete and updated list, Alder Yarrow at Vinography.com has been doing an excellent job keeping tabs on all the deals from wineries all over the country.
If you want our suggestions of what to stock up on, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! We have tasted many of the wines from these wineries and definitely have our faves. Also, if you know of a winery or small wine country business that needs a shout-out, DM us on Instagram and we will put it in our stories. We're all in this together and we may as well have a good glass of wine in hand!
Take care, and cheers from wine country,
Anne and Nicole
