Bob Dwyer over at the The Wellesley Wine Press was kind enough to add his perspective on my recent Trader Joe’s Top 10 Wine List. For those that aren’t familiar with Bob and/or the Wellesley Wine Press we are like minded in our relentless pursuit of value wines. In his own words, “I write this blog to help others enjoy wine more while spending less money”. Give him a read, especially anyone that happens to be in the Boston or Massachusetts area. A while back Bob answered the question I see Bob grappling everyday to figure out potential ways around MA’s arcane wine shipping laws. In addition to being your advocate he has a great handle on the local wine shops, who stocks what and at what price, as well as the wine events happening in the area.
He also offers much more than just local knowledge. He just provided some writeups on his recent tasting room visit to the Napa Valley. I know I plan to visit Lewelling Vineyards next time I am in the area. He also recently turned me on to an extreme deal in the Redtree Pinot Noir. An 88 point California Pinot for $8 (which I have yet to track down, drat!) is unheard of. You already may be a reader of his as he did a guest post here sometime ago answering the question Is Trader Joe’s a Good Place to Buy Wine? If not be sure to check him out. I know I find his musings both entertaining and useful. Hope you do to!
