I’m sorry but – it’s time to start thinking about holiday gift giving.  Considering that you’re reading this, you are undoubtedly planning on giving wine to some of the people on your list. For those friends of yours who love Zinfandel, why not give them a wine you can’t find at your local grocery store, i.e., a slightly culty producer like Tofanelli?

This week, Indie Winemakers is offering hand-crafted artisan Zinfandel from Napa Valley produced by Tofanelli Family Vineyards. This is the same fruit used by Orin-Swift’s the ‘Prisoner’, which was ranked #17 of the top 100 wines in 2007 by Wine Spectator!  Deal Alert: No shipping fees and no tax outside of California means an additional savings of over $30 for most authorized ship-to states.  Only 5 states are restricted.  For additional information and to purchase, go here.

In the past, the Sierra Foothills was known for Zinfandel wines but today you are more likely to find elegant grapes whose ancestral homes include France’s Rhone Valley or Bordeaux region.  Our discount wine of the week features two such varietals, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.  Often used for blending, these wines are far better on their own.  Both wines are offered by Crystal Basin Cellars and are discounted 33% off retail price.  Discounted prices can be purchased here.
