After finishing up at the last WBC lunch and tasting, the Luxe Sonoma lunch
, I headed out with the Brix Chicks
) and Xandria
to another party, this time hosted by Agent Red and Agent Green
) of The Wine Spies
The Wine Spies
is a interesting and effective wine sales site that specializes in 1 great wine a day. It helps both the winery to connect directly with its clientele, and allows consumers to discover a new wine each day and at significant, one-time savings. It is extremely effective at getting the word out about small boutique wineries and their choice of wines is top-notch,
including some of my own favorites such as Galante
) and Parsonage Village Vineyard
). Their style of James Bond-ish secrecy and elite info dissemination keeps the wine very accesible and fun, while refusing to compromise on great background and techinical information.
