WOW!! How about that HUGE Nor'Easter that WASN'T yesterday? I guess that's New England for you. Just when you think that we're about to be buried under 18 inches of snow, the weather will turn on a dime! Anyways, before you know it, we will all be enjoying the pleasures of a New England Spring; it will be balmy and sunny and just about perfect. All this snow and sleet will be but a distant memory.

The wine business is kind of like the weather here in New England. Every once in a while, just when an importer feels that they have locked in on a sure thing, they overplay their hand. These are just the types of situations where we have plied our stock and trade. We make it a point to identify and secure opportunities that assist a producer or importer who has "misread the weather report" while at the same time providing our customers an opportunity to enjoy a very good bottle of wine at an incredible price.

Such is the case with today's Buy the Case Special, the NV Solimar Viñho Verde. This "Sunshine in a Bottle" landed on our doorstep just when we thought such windfalls were done for the time being. Delicious, refreshing Viñho Verde for only $3.33 per bottle with Spring less than a week away? BRING IT!

The Solimar came to us at such a great price because the producer very suddenly and recently parted ways with its US importer, leaving said importer with a not so insignificant quantity of Viñho Verde that it needs to liquidate tout suite. We tasted the wine, we were blown away by the quality and we made an offer. A deal was made and voilà - a $40 case that Can't. Be. Beat!

Crafted from local indigenous varieties Loureiro and Azal by the winemaking team of Antonio Ventura and Vera Moreira, Solimar was produced in the traditional style - a non-vintage wine that has been fermented in stainless steel at low temperature to preserve its crisp and refreshing qualities.

The Solimar VV is slightly off-dry and effervescent, with aromas and flavors of peaches, Honeydew melons and pears. Subtle notes of nougat and honey emerge on the mid-palate; the wine finishes with bright, lime-and-mineral-tinged acidity. It is just perfect for sipping sans cuisine but will be a great accompaniment to seafood, chicken and light pasta dishes.

Just to be clear, this Solimar Viñho Verde offer is $40 for a case of 12/750 ml bottles. That means you are paying a mere $3.33 per bottle and saving 66% off the market price of $10 per bottle. Buy a case or two, toss a few bottles in the fridge when you get it home, and don't tell anyone how much you paid for it as you enjoy the wine throughout the upcoming Spring and Summer with friends and family. Cheers!
