SALE: In Celebration of the Harvest: Qupe's Grenache and Rose on Sale

When Biodynamic® (and organically grown) wines go on sale, I take (and give) notice. Qupe is one of the top Rhone producers and their sales make buying their wine direct from the winery on par with dealing with retailers. Which means more of the profits go to the winemakers and less to the middle-people.

So support your eco-system heroes (they don't use pesticides, herbicides, and hydroponics to grow grapes) and give them your wine dollars. I can heartily recommend both of these wines - their Grenache and their sister label Verdad's Grenache Rose - as they are among my staple recommendations. They're each on sale for 25% off, making the $35 Grenache now $26.25 a bottle and the Rose $13.50 (down from $18).

Let's get ourselves out of being prisoners of the chemical-industrial-wine complex that surrounds us along our freeways and in the aisles of our supermarkets. Give the winemakers your money!
