I drove by Post Road Liquors in Wayland, MA this morning (on the way to Whole Foods for our weekly family shopping.) Their sale wine category for January-February, 2009 is "France and Southern Hemisphere". This is a bit of a tricky mash-up, but I think we can figure it out. All wines in this category (mixed OK) are 20% off if you buy 6 or more. This sale holds at all three of their locations. More info about locations can be found on their website.
Some recommendations from wines in this category that I believe they carry:
- 2004/2005 Chateau Pipeau
- 2005 Chateau Cap de Faugeres (WWP 90)
- 2005 Chateau Marjosse (WWP 87/from the WSJ 2005 Bordeaux value list)
- Any Two Hands Aussie Shiraz (90 WWP)
- Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc (90 WWP)
- Domaine Paul Autard Cotes-du-Rhone (87 WWP)

Question of the Day: Do you have a wine from the Southern Hemisphere (perhaps South Africa, Chile or Argentina) you'd recommend? I'm looking to explore especially Chile lately. Let us know if you've got some picks from these regions.
