Occasionally, a Google search will pull up an interesting website.
Sometimes, you’ll read about a product or website while perusing a
favorite periodical. This week, I
saw an ad for Zachys Wine Auctions featuring a promo for the inaugural Los
Angeles Auction. In fine print at
the bottom, it said “With Wally’s Wine & Spirits”.
Thinking that this had to be a misprint since I own a brewery and not a
wine & spirit shoppe, I Googled "Wally’s Wine".
Imagine my surprise when I found Wally’s Wine in Los Angeles (http://www.wallywine.com).
Billed as Los Angeles’ number one wine shop, this site clearly deserves
a link under our retail sites.
One of the
homepage features is a listing of the top five Wine Spectator rated wines that
Wally’s stocks as well as the top five Parker rated wines that Wally’s
stocks. I clicked on the Phelps
Insignia rated as the first of the five Parker rated wines.
Instantly, the site took me to a description of the 2000 priced at $86.99
per bottle. I’ll ask the Jersey boys (WB and WJ) if they can do better
than this in their neck of the woods. Meanwhile,
I’ll check out the wine club offerings and get back to you in a future
