Deal Alert: Bodegas Juan Gil Variety Pack [MA Only]

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

Boston-area retailer Bin Ends Wine is offering a mixed case of wine from Gil Family Estates for $79.20 ($6.60/btl). If you like the Silver-labeled 12 Month Juan Gil proper (the mind-bendingly good QPR red I discovered years ago at The Capital Grille) this is a great opportunity to explore other offerings from Gil Family Estates.

These wines normally sell for around $10-$12/btl. I've tried most of them. Although none of them quite rise to the level of excitement Juan Gil Silver does, they are solid wines and a great low-risk way to explore the wines of Spain from an outstanding producer.

Expect contemporary, distinctive labels. Old world grapes crafted in a luscious new world style. And great value.

When I visited Spain a couple years ago Juan Gil was often sold out at local restaurants. In contrast, when I visited Italy a couple weeks ago I saw Santa Margherita in supermarkets for 7.99 Euro (as opposed to the $20 it sells for here). My point: In Spain the locals like Juan Gil as much as we do. They make tremendous wines at compelling price points.

I was so taken by the Juan Gil wines I wanted to start a Juan Gil blog. Or at least take this space over for an entire month dedicated to the subject. Call it "Juanuary!". I regularly use the #JuanGilFanClub hashtag on Twitter. Clearly I've got enthusiasm for the producer, and you should to.

I'd love it if you subscribed to the WWP for future updates.
