I drink too much wine and dont agree with the retail prices, im out of cases so likely i'll fall back to my saftey net of Ella alley cab franc (easy to get for 22$ here) and maybe ramon cardova di rioja which I get for about 15-16

Florida has got to catch up retail wise :( while allied sells here via opici, I have yet to see Gvaot on the shelf


For rosh hashana I want to go with Domaine De Ventura

GG,
For a winery rat like me fugataboutit.... i'm contemplating a trip to Israel for 635$ RT from miami just to schlep wine back, and thats with 2 flight already in winter ;)

Ella here in miami is a good deal because victor imports here, also they have chai for 12$ which tastes OK

In case anyone was reading the notes as I do, and is not fluent in French or botany - ananas is Pineapple :D

:lol: Sorry about that! 'ananas' sounds tropical on its own in french already so I forgot to translate it. And it's the same word in Hebrew as well...
