The weather is cooling down, the leaves are changing, the mosquitos are finally dying, but we only have one thing on our minds right now:

That’s right. As the seasons change, our reasons for communal wine consumption shifts from “hey it’s nice outside” to more consolidated, less frequent social gatherings. Sometimes, though, these parties can catch us by surprise. Now to be sure, this is probably the best kind of surprise, but there is still nothing worse than being caught with a house full of people and a cellar devoid of bottles.

But you’re more prepared than that, aren’t you? You’re going to stock up early and be prepared for even the most sudden of “Hooray for Thursday Night” parties. We know. And we’re proud. With that in mind, here are Four wines with free shipping to stock up on for party season. Grab a case, and be prepared!

Estefania Tilenus Roble 2010

This wine has 90pt scores from Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator, AND Stephen Tanzer. Gorgeous red fruit and baking spice are rounded out by a tasteful application of vanilla from 8-10 months in oak. And did we mention it’s $10.99? Because it’s only $10.99

Altocedro Ano Cero Malbec 2012

Malbec is a grape that is practically born and bred for social gatherings. Always a crowd-pleaser, this particular example shows a dried fruit character redolent of raisins concentrated berries. A 92 from James Suckling doesn’t hurt either. $16.99

Finca El Encinal Ribera Del Duero Crianza 2010

A 94-point, five-year-old Ribera Del Duero for under $15? Sounds too good to be true, but for us, it’s just another party! $14.98 (when you order 6+ and use code FINCAFREE)

Capanne Ricci Brunello Di Montalcino 2008

Now there may be those of you who think “I couldn’t possibly buy enough Brunello to make it through another employee Christmas Party” but you’d be wrong. Dead wrong. This meaty, chunky, dense example of the highly-rated 2008 vintage will rock your guests’ worlds. This will change the way they look at “party wine” and therefore change the way they look at YOU. $24.99 (when you order 6+ and use code 6BTDEAL)

And let’s not forget that all of these wines have free shipping so you’re free to order as many as you’d like at no additional shipping cost! So what are you waiting for? Stock up for party season now!
