Don't miss out on chances to buy organically grown wines at great discounts:
1. DASHE CELLARS, OAKLAND
On these dates only - Nov. 14-21: 25% off on cases (mixed or singles)
The organic offerings include:
Dashe - McFadden Rieslings (organic) (2010 and 2011)
Dashe - Heart Arrow Zinfandel (biodynamic)
(I don't advise getting Dashe's Thanksgiving bundle as it includes mostly non-organically grown wines).
One of the great plusses about Dashe - they are right here in Oakland so you can drop by and pick up the wines yourself - no shipping charges.
2. BONNY DOON, SANTA CRUZ
Bonny Doon is running three special deals - choose from different bundles - or packs, as they call them.
Pack 1 - 4 wines for $80
The sparkling Moscato is a great aperitif or goes well with the meal or dessert.
The Clos de Gilroy is a grenache, a red on the lighter side (and one of my personal favorite varietals) that pairs well with turkey, ham, or other fare. But it is not whole-ly organic (partially).
The Muscat is not your usual muscat and is definitely on the dry, dry side (not sweet). It comes from the Italian moscato giallo grapes, a yellow muscat found in northeast Italy.
Vinferno is clearly a sweet wine and great for dessert.
Pack 2 - 4 wines for $90
I am not sure if the following are organically grown (pending winery response): This pack includes a new sparkling Riesling (again, a great aperif or accompaniment to the meal), a viognier (light white), a carignane/mourvedre blend (medium bodied red) (might not be fully organic - to be confirmed pending winery notification), and a light port (viognier with added eau de vie and raw grape spirit (also unknown if this is certified organic).
There's also a Holiday Brunch pack - 5 wines for $78
This one includes:
• a nonalcoholic grenache, which can be drunk as it or mixed with sparkling water.
• a hard sparkling cider, which is a blend of apples (51%), pears (40%) and quince (9%)
• a rose (70% grenache and 30% cinsault)
and the aforementioned dry (yellow) muscat and grenache blend.
In addition, Bonny Doon is offering free shipping on orders over $125.
3. AMAPOLA CREEK, SONOMA
Amapola Creek is offering free shipping on any order of 6 or more bottles - offer good until 11.23.11.
All of their estate grown wines are certified organic. (They offer a Monteo Rosso Zinfandel which is not estate grown).
Their estate grown wines include a new Rhone blend of grenache and syrah (Cuvee Alis), Syrahs, Cabernet, and Zinfandels.
