"Over the past month I have heard about four wineries that have simply stopped making wine but continue to market their wines, some quite avidly with increased marketing and new labels and expect a number of additional wineries to join this list over the next 12 months." Yossie Horwitz
Anyone know who? I've been expecting this for a while because of the large number of wineries. I wish them all well.
Alexander - please beware that those wines were never for long cellaring. Since they have not made wine for a few years, I would be VERY careful and make sure to drink them up ASAP. IF I am wrong - you will still enjoy them. If I am correct - it will save you 10 to 12 bucks a bottle.
Thanks David, The plan was to open and drink them in the near month or two. After your reply, I'll buy the most recent vintage they have. I'll get three bottles as a start and will see if the wines worth the $10, b4 I get more
To update. My brother-in-law tasted several Bashan wines today and reported that 2008 drinks fine now, whereas 2009 has some time yet and be better stored than open. I remember when Zmora (hope the name is right) closed several years ago, they also put their wines on sale. Later, I saw one of the wine shops that stocked up was intensively trying to push it. I skipped, because Rogov didn't rate the wines high.
