"This is a steal ... this tastes like a $50-$70 White Burgundy that has California Sunshine ... reminds me of a toned down Kistler, Paul Hobbs, or Ramey ... it's that pedegree." - Gary Vaynerchuk, star of WineLibraryTV

Earlier this year, we offered the 2011 vintage of this wine

The result was a total sell out.

We knew it would be a huge hit.  Not only have we introduced a ton of our customers to the incredible wine from Bello Family Vineyards, the Chardonnay was one that we had a feeling would go quick.  Not only is the production very limited on these wines, we had a very small amount of the 2011 to offer.  The bad news (as we told our customers at the time), was that the 2011 was totally sold out.  However, in this case, there is some good news.  The 2012 vintage is now in stock (although like the 2011, in limited quantities) ... and we think this vintage is even better!

Introducing the 2012 Bello Family Vineyards Chardonnay

The Deal

Chardonnay Drinkers Alert: Today’s offer on the 2012 Bello Family Vineyards Chardonnay brings you jaw-dropping savings of more than 44% when you buy 12 or more bottles!   The perfectly balanced Chardonnay, listing for $45 is on sale for $29.99/bottle but drops to $24.99 when you buy by the case and use code BELLO12. (Please note, this special deal is valid for 24 hours only)

This is an "act-now" kind of deal on one of the greatest Chardonnay deals all year, period!  

The Vineyard & The Vigneron

Scopus Vineyard, a 15 acre jewel of a single vineyard that sits high atop Sonoma Mountain, boasts the perfect cool, dry growing conditions for the likes of Chardonnay.  The vineyard’s naturally lower yields produces grapes with breathtaking intensity.  Add to that a varied geology that includes volcanic soils adds unreal complexity.

Scopus Vineyard is managed by the famed Ulises Valdez, a legend who is hugely touted as one of the best vineyard managers in all of California, managing the grape source contracts for the likes of Paul Hobbs, Pahlmeyer, Aubert, Schrader and Rivers Marie, just to name a few.  We’re talking prime Chardonnay fruit, here, folks, and with winery partners whose wines are typically 2-3 times more expensive than today’s offer, you’ll see why we are so excited about today’s deal!

The Vintage

2012 was epic, collectible, and flat out gorgeous in every way.  Aside from the monumental press the vintage earned for reds, 2012 was one of Robert Parker’s flat out favorite white wine vintages in the last decade!  Releases this memorable have a way of disappearing fast, yet today’s 2012 Single Vineyard Chardonnay, at today’s price, is an offer that stands in relief to many of the deals you’re going to see out there, especially at today’s price:  44% off the release price on case buys!?!  Wow!!

The Winemaker

Robert Parker has annointed the next big winemaking icon-in-the-making, whose star is rising so fast that everyone, and I mean everyone, wants a piece of him: Aaron Pott.  In November 2012, Food & Wine Magazine named Pott “Winemaker of the Year”.  His triple digit-priced wines, whose most recent releases scored in the mid-upper 90s from Robert Parker, are making a statement throughout California and beyond.  

Robert Parker, himself, declared Pott as “…the next brilliant winemaking consultant to burst out from the shadows of consulting with his own bevy of sensational and individualistic wines. His résumé is impressive, having worked with the likes of the late Christine Valette at Château Troplong-Mondot, Michel Rolland, and Johns Kongsgaard at Newton. He is doing some terrific consulting work…Kudos to Aaron Pott who appears to have put himself in the top hierarchy of Napa Valley’s most illustrious winemaking consultants.”

We’re talking top of the mountain talent here, a Master, whose winemaking gigs have included everything from Quintessa to Kongsgaard to Blackbird to Krupp…uber premium wines with price tags that start at $60-75/bottle and up, way up.  Today’s Chardonnay, which released for $45/bottle, will cost you $24.99/bottle when you buy this by the case.  This is as exciting a deal for white wine drinkers as you’ll find all year, period!

All in all, this is a stunning offer.  Both for drinking now ... and for something to put in the cellar, especially for white wine lovers ... all for $24.99 per bottle when you buy by the case!!
