Peter's top 5 wine and spirits

Thank you for checking out our top 5 wines & spirits for the Spring & Summer season. One of the many perks of our job is we get to taste, learn, and appreciate all the products we sell in our store. We spend countless hours looking for those hidden gems and outstanding products to share with all of you. What could be better than passing all this knowledge and “hard work” onto our customers and formally rank our 5 favorite wines and spirits for the upcoming warmer months.

And just so you don’t think we just pulled these names out of a hat, here is how we scored our products…

Value – Can’t pick all $100 bottles of wine. Does the bottle we pick reflect the price tag it comes with or is it even better? Good way to give all of our products an even playing field

Quality – Goes without saying overall quality of the product, taste, care put into making a perfect wine or spirit

Bottle – Sounds silly put a big part of the “experience” of our favorite beverage is the bottle it comes in. The label, weight & shape of the bottle, overall quality of the package.

Our panel consists of the owner, store manager, main inventory manager, and occasionally customers wondering what we’re doing sampling 30 different bottles of wine!
