Avalon Wine’s Annual Collector’s Cases

 

Marcus Looze and Northwest Wine's Big Reds Collector's CaseHere today, gone today:

Eight years ago Marcus started creating these uber-cases for the holidays. He hides away an armful of the very hardest to get Oregon and Washington wines and taunts me with “you won’t believe what’s going to be in the Collector’s cases this year!” but won’t tell me what he scored.

Here they are.  Only a dozen or so available, they usually last about a day. I’m posting them on this blog the day before the announcement to give you, our readers, early notice.

If you want one, email us – store@northwest-wine.com or call us Monday at  541-752-7418.

Happy holidays! – Jean
