Wine Emporium Sale

It's not very often that really good wine sales happen in Brisbane. Which is why I rushed in to The Wine Emporium today. The Wine Emporium is having a huge sale that covers wine from just about everywhere. The sale list is 19 pages long, so everyone should find a drop that takes their fancy.

I went for a bit of a splurge on red Burgundy and picked up bottles of Domaine Daniel Rion 2005 Nuits-Saint-Georges "Les Vignes Rondes" 1er Cru, Domaine Daniel Rion 2005 Vosne-Romanee "Les Beaux Monts" 1er Cru and a Faiveley 2005 Nuits-Saint-Georges "Les Damodes" 1er Cru. And seeing as its still winter, I couldn't go past a half bottle of Smith Woodhouse 1994 vintage port.

Although its a "sale", you can only get a list of the wines on sale from The Wine Emporium website. You also have to join up as a member, but that takes about 10 seconds. You'll need to print the list out and take it with you, because none of the wines on sale are marked in the store.

If you need a few bottles to stock up the cellar, you better get in there today or tomorrow. The guys tell me that there were people lined up outside the store this morning before the doors opened, so I don't think there will be much left by Monday.
