It’s no secret that wine can be an important component of meals, events, special occasions and everyday life in general. Every wine is unique and serves a different purpose. You can have a wine that is perfect for warm weather, your weekend barbeque, an aperitif, or a weeknight at home.
It can be a daunting and time consuming task to create a case of wine that covers a lot of bases with each bottle, and with summer parties and picnics on the horizon, who has time to spare?
Have no fear! It’s Oliver’s to the rescue. We’ve gone through our 20 featured wines in the Third Quarter edition of the Tasting Times and carefully selected 12 perfect bottles for you. With a nice, seasonally appropriate mix of bubbles, whites, rosé and reds, no matter what wine selection challenge you’re faced with, you’ll always have the perfect bottle of wine.
We’re so sure this case is the perfect selection of wines that we’re offering a 15% discount on it, instead of the standard 10%. The case is already pre-packed, so all you have to do is visit any of our four locations and ask one of our knowledgeable and friendly Wine Specialists for The Perfect Case.
