Stock Up for the Season and Save at Oliver’s Value Wine Sale

With the holiday season right around the corner, we all know that things can transition from ‘great times’ to ‘stressful and costly times’ in a flash. From the big Thanksgiving feast, to dinner parties, casual gatherings, unexpected houseguests, and even just a quiet night at home, the holiday season is filled with a wide variety of occasions that require food — and wine.

To prepare for the expected – and the unexpected – this holiday season, it pays to stock up on the items you can easily store, and one of those items is wine. Yes, we know when you hear the phrase “stock up”, you immediately equate it with spending a lot of money; however, that doesn’t have to be the case. There are a lot of great wines out there that overdeliver at their price, but figuring out the best bets can be tricky. After spending precious time searching the shelves, it’s no fun to pick out a wine that is new to you and discover that it isn’t your cup of tea.

To help streamline your shopping trip and increase your odds of success — and savings — we have selected 20 wines, all under $10, that are sure to pair perfectly with everything the season has in store for you. This selection of white, rosé, red, and sparkling wines are all wines that we believe in and would serve to guests in our own homes. With the endorsement of the Oliver’s Wine, Beer & Spirits team, we DO believe it’s possible to get a great bottle of wine, without spending a fortune.

Note: All quoted prices in effect from November 1-7, 2023, at all four Oliver’s Market locations.

Tasting Notes and Recommendations

We asked our Wine Managers to share notes on a couple of their favorite bottles featured this week:

Honoro Vera Garnacha, $7.99
“A superb value, this is a wine that overdelivers its price point. Red berry fruits, such as strawberry, raspberry, and blueberry jump from the glass, with hints of anise and pepper sprinkled in. The wine is medium bodied with ample acidity and extremely light tannins.” — Justin Bowman, Cotati Wine Manager

Bliss Sauvignon Blanc 2022, $9.99
“All estate grown fruit. Stainless steel fermented to help preserve the aromas of the grape while giving the wine a little more body. Tropical fruit that funnels mango, pineapple and guava. Easy sippin’ Sauvignon Blanc at a great price!” — Matteo Polverari, Montecito Wine Manager

Mil Piedras Malbec, $8.99
“Wow, what a good wine for a great price. This wine plays above its pay grade with grippy tannins and nice black fruit flavors and a touch of vanilla and spice. This would go great with a nice Ribeye with a balsamic glaze finish.” — David Riley, Stony Point Wine Manager

Here are some notes on other favorites featured this week:

  • Every fall gathering will begin on a more festive note with the addition of JP Chenet Brut, and at this price, you cannot find a better pour. Its bright golden hue and delicate bubbles bring fruity aromas with notes of white peach and apricot. It is a perfect (and affordable) aperitif for any occasion.
  • Another great wine to serve to guests as they arrive at your house is the Gazela Vinho Verde. It is crisp, refreshing and low in alcohol with citrus and mineral notes. There is a slight effervescence present, which is one of the refreshing characteristics of Vinho Verde.
  • If pizza, burgers or ribs are on your menu, be sure to pick up the Geyser Peak Red Blend, or any of the other featured Red Blends. This tasty and delicious blended red is easy to drink, fruit-forward, and will be an easy match for whatever you pair it with.

These are just a handful of the 20 wines that will give you more bang-for-your-buck this holiday season, without breaking the bank. Stop in today, where our friendly and knowledgeable Wine Department staff is ready and eager to help you make your holiday season the best it can be.

  1. I have tried Mil Piedras and I was disappointed, The GASCON MALBEC is much better and only a dollar or so more.
