Limited Wines 2017_18 Season

It's fall again. Time to rake leafs, I've seen ice on the deck and snow on the mountains.
But fall also means getting ready for the upcoming "limited wine' season.

This years we will offer our longtime regulars, Limited Edition from Winexpert, Passport Series from Vineco and after last years succes we will be offering the Restricted Quantities again from RJSpagnols.

This means we will carry a total of 13 wines, 9 Red and 4 White.
It looks like a true trip around the world with 2 Australian, 1 New Zealand, 1 South African, 1 Chilean, 1 Californian, 2 Spanish, 2 Italian, 2 French and 1 German wine.
From the 9 red wines, 5 come with skins.
6 pure varietals and 9 blends.
Please keep in mind that oak- and sweetness levels can always be adjusted to your personal taste.

Please note that all 3 programs have different order deadlines, if you like to be on the safe side, make sure that you have your complete order in before November 17th, or earlier if you don't want to miss out on the RQ wines.

RQ 2018: Deadine has already passed. RJ caught me a bit off guard this year with a real early deadline this year. I have secured a reasonable amount of kits though, which will can be ordered on a 'first come-first serve' basis.

  • Passport Series 2018: November 17th
  • Limited Edition 2017: December 1st
