Jackpot Vinho Regional Lisboa Red Blend...$9.99
Grapes: 75% Aragones and 25% Castelao

Made exclusively from indigenous Lisboan grapes, this easy-drinking, good-looking, well-balanced Portuguese wine will quickly become the talk of the town. The grapes ripen slowly producing a rich, juicy wine loaded with red fruits. Well balanced and delicious. We bet you you’ll like it.  Lisbon has always been about discoveries. The Atlantic Ocean gave the city every reason to explore, learn from, and engage with other cultures. It also gave it every reason to be the strength of Portugal’s empire that spread across the world.

2017 Almarada Malbec Uco Valley...$13.99
Grape: Malbec
Maybe this isn't the most subtle wine in Argentina, but it has a lot going for it. Plenty of orange peel and dried cranberry on the nose of the bold palate. Drink now.
Rated 90/100 James Suckling


2014 Vinestral Rioja Joven...$8.99

Grapes: Tempranillo and Garnacha
Viñestral is crafted by Bodegas Marqués de Reinosa, a quality-conscious cooperative founded in the town of Autol (Rioja Baja) in 1956. The wines are great values, offering plenty of classic Rioja character in a ripe and satisfying style that is sure to please.
Tasting Notes: This youthful red offers aromas of strawberry, blackberry and cherry with light mineral and licorice notes, soft tannins, and a long, fresh finish. Serve With: Soft and fruity enough to be enjoyed on its own, this versatile red is also excellent with tapas and a wide range of red meats.


2018 Nugan Third Generation Shiraz...$12.99

Grapes: Shiraz
Deep purple in appearance with youthful crimson hues. Lifted ripe berry fruit aromas, with hints of earth, pepper and dark chocolate complimented by sweet red berry fruit flavours with spice and a silky tannin finish.


2015 Domaine de L'Arboussa Maury Sec...$14.99

Grapes: Grenache and Syrah
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $19.99
Mostly from the home property of Serge Soulatge, who’s one of the driving forces behind the quality of the Domaine Cabirau wines, the 2015 Maury Sec got a big “wow” in the notes and offers sensational aromas and flavors of cassis, ripe blackberries, spice and spring flowers. With medium to full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannin and just beautiful purity, it’s a no brainer that should be on reader's short list.

2019 Stratum Waipara Valley Sauvignon Blanc...$11.99
Boasting attractive herbal notes of snow peas and cut grass layered over nectarine-like fruit, the 2019 Stratum Sauvignon Blanc is a medium-bodied, slightly chalky-textured example of the variety. Moderately concentrated, it appears to have the stuffing to hold in bottle for a couple of years. At the recommended retail price of $13, it's a terrific bargain.Rated 88/100 The Wine Advocate


2018 Horgelus Côtes Gascogne de Blanc....$9.99
40% Sauvignon and 60% Gros Manseng

We taste so many Cotes de Gascogne and most are just boring and insipid. Horgeuls is exciting and vibrant!
The estate is run now by Yoan Le Menn, his son. Yoan represents the younger generation of oenologists who work tirelessly to combine modernity and experience. The biggest task is preserving of the aromas by limiting, as much as possible, all forms of oxidation of the “must” and the wines. For this reason the grapes are harvested early in the morning – from 3am to 11 am – in order to take advantage of the cool air. On the other hand, the carbon dioxide from the alcoholic fermentation is recuperated to protect the newly pressed juice. From the grape to the bottling process, everything is designed to preserve the fruity flavors and freshness of our wines.


2018 Medimer Viognier....$12.99
Well-rounded, fruity and exoticShiny yellow with intense green hues. Complex and rich in aromas of large-stone fruit such as white peach and apricot. Attacks the mouth with richness and pleasant roundness.
This Viognier is grown on the Mediterranean waterfront is principally composed of two types of sediments: tertiary (sand, clay) and quaternary (gravel). Climate: Mediterranean, along with special humidity and freshness from the Étang de Thau, creating the finest white wines.


2017 Le Cirque Grenache Gris...$8.99
Made from 100% Grenache Gris, the 2017 Côtes Catalanes Grenache Gris is a beautifully salty, racy white that has tons of character. Citrus blossom, salty minerality, and white flowers all emerge from this fabulous white that's going to be as versatile as it gets on the dinner table.

2018 Chateau Fontana Bordeaux Rouge...$14.99
Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot
This one we tried to get last year, but the importer says it sells out so fast each year we already missed out. We are excited to be able to get the sought after 2018 vintage. This one is a fraction of the cost for Fontana’s neighbors, the wine is from Bordeaux, which is regarded as the best wine producing region in the world.
Fontana’s old-vine Merlot (36 years old!) are thriving where others are struggling and exquisitely expressing their character, blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc flesh out into a champion bottle with violet aromas and a rich palate ripe red and blueberries, spice, and earth. Just as much an everyday drinker as it is a celebratory one or one to lay down, the 2018 Chateau Fontana as it is now is the very definition of an easy drinker of which, vintage after vintage, we’ve been repeatedly stunned on how superbly it exemplifies its terroir.


2018 Château Haut Claribes Bordeaux Superieur...$19.99
"Reserve" of Chateau Fontana
Premium quality selection of the most beautiful berries and the most mature from the oldest vines. This wine delivers a pretty red color, a fine nose of red fruits. On the palate, the attack is clear, the material is dense and supple. It offers a very long finish, pleasant and flowery on powerful cheeses. Great with cheese!

Rated 90/100 The Wine Enthusiast
A blend of syrah, grenache and mourvedre, with dollops of merlot and petite sirah, this is a dark beast of a wine. A sumptuous oak element drives the rich red-fruit flavors, integrating with air to create a generous and forceful red.

Best Value in Sauvignon Blanc!

Brand new 2019 Vintage!
Fresh and lively!


2019 Stratum Waipara Valley Sauvignon Blanc...$11.99
Boasting attractive herbal notes of snow peas and cut grass layered over nectarine-like fruit, the 2019 Stratum Sauvignon Blanc is a medium-bodied, slightly chalky-textured example of the variety. Moderately concentrated, it appears to have the stuffing to hold in bottle for a couple of years. At the recommended retail price of $13, it's a terrific bargain.
Rated 88/100 The Wine Advocate

Stratum Sauvignon Blanc is made by Jill and Dayne Sherwood and comes off their Waipara vineyard, adjacent to the winery. It is thus grown, produced and bottled by them. Waipara is cooler than Marlborough and allows them to use more skin contact, which broadens the middle palate of their SB thus creating more harmonious mouthfeel.

Aromas of gooseberry, fresh herbs and fresh cut grass with slight asparagus notes. A refreshing wine with fruit flavours of crab apple, quince and white peach. Hints of passionfruit lend a slightly sweet fruit note while vegetal aspects of artichoke give the wine a complex and interesting flavour profile. A medium-bodied wine with light acidity and a fine grained texture.

Andremily Syrah No. 6



Stunning wine!!  At this price it is actually a bargain!
Very limited 

2017 Andremily Syrah No. 6....$119.99
Composed of 92% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre and 3% Viognier, using 40% whole cluster, the Andremily 2017 No. 6 is sourced from White Hawk, Larner, Harrison-Clarke, Watch Hill and Alta Mesa Vineyards. To be bottled mid-August 2019, it will spend around 22 months in French oak barriques, 60% new. Deep garnet-purple, the nose is already singing at this nascent stage, giving up loads of bright blackberries, crushed red and black plums and mulberries scents with Indian spices, cardamom, Sichuan pepper and dusty soil plus a waft of wild thyme. Full-bodied and firm, with a refreshing line cutting through the densely packed black fruit layers, it has wonderfully ripe, rounded tannins and a long finish.
Rated 96-98+/100 The Wine Advocate
Not yet bottled, the 2017 No 6 checks in as 92% Syrah, 5% Mourvèdre, and 3% Viognier that saw the same 40% stems and will see 22 months in 60% new French oak. It too is inky colored and has a gorgeous bouquet of blackcurrants, cassis, scorched earth, violets, and ground pepper. Rich, powerful, full-bodied, and concentrated, it's more elegant and straight than the 2016, with a seamless texture, ultra-fine tannins, and a great finish. The 2017 has a touch more Larner Vineyard, which gives more acidity, and you see that in this barrel sample. It's another thrilling wine that's going to benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age and be a classic.
Rated 97-99/100 Jeb Dunnuck

PERFECT CABERNET



PERFECT WINE!
WE SCORED 12 MORE BOTTLES!
FIRST COME!
2016 Spottswoode Caberent Sauvignon...$219.99
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is still very tight and youthful, slowly unfurling to reveal a multifaceted wine with tons of black, blue and red fruit sparks—plums, cherries, black currants and red currants—with dark chocolate, cedar chest, black tea and red roses in the background plus wafts of pencil lead and prosciutto. Medium-bodied and firmly textured by superbly ripe, grainy tannins, it has a fantastic core of intense, complex layers, finishing on an edifying mineral note. Wow!

Tait wines are back!

We are proud to reintroduce the wines of Tait to St. Louis!

All 4 stores should have them in stock when we open at 11am Tuesday!


These are some old favorites!!





2016 Tait The Ball Buster Proprietary Red..$18.99
The current release of the Ball Buster is the 2016 The Ball Buster Proprietary Red. Like previous vintages, it's a full-bodied, plushly textured red, dominated by Shiraz (80%), with smaller amounts of Merlot (12%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (8%). Hints of dark chocolate accent black cherry and plum fruit, while the velvety tannins linger on the finish.
Rated 91/100 The Wine Advocate



2015 Tait The Border Crossing Shiraz....$19.99
I'm not sure what it says about a Barossa winery when its most striking wine (out of the three provided by the U.S. importer) is a McLaren Vale Shiraz. Tait's 2015 The Border Crossing Shiraz fits right into the house style of full-on ripeness and opulence, but it changes up the fruit profile to yield something brighter, fresher and loaded with cherry and red-berry fruit. Full-bodied, creamy and supple across the mid-palate, with a long, silky-tart finish, it's a fine but different complement to the super bargains delivered by this Barossa-based producer.
Rated 92/100 The Wine Advocate
A lovely mix of toasted cumin, chicory and nutmeg spiciness is set against a dense and succulent core of blackberry and blueberry flavors, with a thread of vanilla bean. The tannins are dense, yet velvety and smooth, and the finish lingers. Drink now through 2032. 1,108 cases made, 1,000 cases imported. — MW

Wine & Cheese Place: Curbside and Delivery Only + New Hours + Enhanced Sanitization Procedures

Dear Friend of The Wine & Cheese Place and Fellow St. Louisan,

Our stores are open during the stay at home order.  However, we are taking the following precautions:
1.     Service will be delivery and curbside only.  You can order online for delivery or curbside pickup.  You can call from home as well.  Lastly, you can park in front of the store, call us, and we will fulfill your order while you wait.  Details here: http://bit.ly/TWCPstl
2.     Store hours are being reduced. Our new operating hours are 11:00AM to 7:00PM Mon through Saturday at all four stores.  As we have a Sunday license in The City of Clayton, the Forsyth store will operate on Sundays between 10:00AM and 4:00PM beginning March 29.
3.     Our employees will be divided into teams to reduce the chance of viral communication.  Their shifts will not overlap.   Each team will be sanitizing the stores during the day and at the beginning and end of their shift.  This is in addition to the heightened sanitization procedures we put in place two weeks ago.  Staffing will be reduced, so we appreciate your understanding with respect to phone hold times and prep times.   
4.     We are cashless.  We have been cashless for one week and will continue to be credit card only—this eliminates a significant touch point between staff and customers.
As of today, March 21, these precautions are beyond those recommended by state and local officials. However, I feel strongly that they are required to better protect our employees and customers.  I personally do not want to venture into another store if I don’t have to, and I cannot in good conscience ask that of my customers. 

For those that may not recall, we also have a variety of food items and treats (pasta, frozen bread, cheeses, dips, sauces, chips, crackers, chocolates, candies and of course our famous house-roasted nuts).  All is in good supply at the moment and we will be posting pics of our stock (sorry, these are not on the website).

We are also working with a local caterer to offer family meals for pick up.  More on that in the next few days.

Thank you so much for supporting our local family-owned business during this exceptionally difficult time.  I ask that you help us further by sharing this message with your friends.

We wish you and your loved ones health and happiness.  Also, if you’ve been saving a special bottle—we believe now is a great time to treat yourself!

Best regards,

-->
Vijay Shroff

  • We appreciate you placing your order online as we are short staffed. Even if you just start your order online and you can put in the notes anything else you are looking for and we will call you as time allows.  
  • We will call you back in the based on the order your order was received.
  • We will do our best to fulfill orders on the same day. We do not know at this point how much the delivery service can handle and how much we can handle in one day
