Whether you stock up on your favorites or use this opportunity to try some new wines, one thing is certain: You will save 20% on all Sonoma County wines! Opportunity is knocking, as they say, and it’s a good time to answer the door.
So, now comes the hard part: What to buy? How can one choose from so many great options?
That’s where our Oliver’s Wine Team comes into the picture. If you know what you like and where to find it, that’s great, but if you would like some assistance, they are standing by, ready to serve you. Our Wine Teams taste every bottle we carry, and pride themselves on their ability to make recommendations that will suit your needs.
This week, we asked our Wine Department Assistant Managers to weigh in on some of their favorite picks for this week’s sale and here they are!
Alexander Valley Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, 2019 Alexander Valley
“This phenomenal wine introduces itself with lovely fruit up front bringing notes of black current and boysenberry. The wine has silky smooth tannins to bring some good structure and 91 points from James Suckling. You could do worse.” – Travis Camilleri, Cotati Assistant Wine Manager
- Quivira Sauvignon Blanc, 2020 Sonoma County
“This wine has a bright acidity up front with notes of melon and lemon peel followed by a tropical, fruit-forward finish. Inspired by cool mornings along the coast and warm days throughout Sonoma County, this wine pairs well with a light picnic or rich seafood.” – Andrew Long, Montecito Assistant Wine Manager
- Bellacana Pinot Noir, 2018 Russian River Valley
“By far, one of my favorite Pinots on our shelves! Hitting your taste buds with flavors of Plum and Pomegranate. Medium body and a smooth ending. I would recommend grabbing 2 bottles and sharing with friends.” – Joey Tavares, Windsor Assistant Wine Manager
- Bloodroot Rose of Pinot Noir, 2021 Sonoma County
“Crisp and dry with flavors of strawberry, melon and orange blossom explodes from the glass with touches of watermelon rind. Full body with a great balance of acid and fruit. Great by the glass or pairs great with a mixed greens salad with raspberry balsamic dressing or a salmon dish. This rosé can be enjoyed all day any day of the year.” – Jeffrey Lashar, Stony Point Assistant Wine Manager
Wine – and Food!
Once you have grabbed some great Sonoma County wines, you may want to enjoy them with something delicious. We have some great wine-friendly recipes on our website that would be great matches for local wines. How about Gourmet Mushroom Bruschetta for a starter with Pinot Noir or other red wines? For entrée ideas, we offer Grilled New York Steak with Red Wine Reduction, Rib Eye Steaks with Blue Cheese Butter or Yuzu Miso Glazed Salmon.
Take advantage of great savings this week and toast great food, great wine, and great friends this week, with a little help from Oliver’s Market. Cheers!
