Here come the holidays! Gruet Brut sparkling wine

Perhaps the most charitable comment we can make about this year

as it draws to a close is…it’s drawing to a close.


Hey 2020, don’t let the screen door hit you on your way out. 


We still have five-plus weeks remaining but in a year like this,

looking forward sure feels better than looking back.


Let’s celebrate. 

We’ve earned it.

Basic RGB

With the short week and Thanksgiving rapidly approaching,

we’re moving our regular Wine Thursday! feature to Tuesday. 

That will give you time to acquire our

good-wine-at-a-good-price-that-you-can-find recommendation

not only for your Turkey Day feast

but also for all of your upcoming holiday celebrations.





Gruet Brut is a good call for any occasion that calls for bubbles

(which many folks believe is just that…any occasion). 

An annual pick on many top value lists, Gruet Brut is crisp, full-bodied and sharp. 

As the name “brut” implies, it’s dry and tangy. 

And it does double duty: it’s great on its own and it’s great with food. 


Gruet Brut is quite easy to find. 

Total Wine has it for $14.99. 

Whole Foods carries it for $15.99. 

It’s at Fred Meyer for $16.49. 

Safeway and QFC both have it for $16.99. 

Online, you can order it from where it’s currently on sale for $14.99. 


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
