Top 100 Wines – AGAIN!

We are so proud to have had our delicious 2012 Sauvignon Blanc picked by the San Francisco Chronicle as one of their Top 100 Wines of 2013. What makes it even more special is that it is the second time we have received this recognition. A week after the Chronicle Top 100 was released, there was also a fun article about Dawn and yours truly by Meredith May in the Chronicle. If you missed it, here you go. Although it is always wonderful to receive the recognition of the press, we are especially thankful for all the praise we receive from you, our loyal customers and friends. In appreciation we would like to offer FREE SHIPPING on 6 or more bottles of our 2012 Sauvignon Blanc through the month of December.

It’s Not Too Late!

The weather outside may be frightful, but our wine is quite delightful! And it’s not too late to stock up on Galante wines to get you through the holidays or for that last minute gift that is ever so special. To help you out, we are offering a very limited 4-bottle selection, which includes one bottle each of our 2012 Sauvignon Blanc, 2009 Ace High Malbec, 2008 Red Rose Hill Cabernet Sauvignon and 2008 Estate Merlot for just $100 (a savings of over 20%) AND shipping anywhere in the continental US for only $10!! This offer is available for a limited time on our website (enter offer code: 4PACK at checkout), or at the Tasting Room. So give the gift of Cheer that will truly brighten their day.

Golf Anyone?

If you haven’t heard, the Monterey Peninsula is not only famous for Galante wines, but there is a bit of golf around here!! One of the most celebrated events is the Pebble Beach National AT&T Pro-Am where top tour professionals team with Hollywood celebrities, renowned musicians and industry leaders to compete for a $6.5 million dollar purse, as well as bragging rights. If you have tried to attend previously you know how terribly hard it is to get accommodations. We would love to give the first opportunity to stay in our Carmel Studio to one of our Galante Vineyards customers. So if you are thinking of attending, our studio in the heart of Carmel will make a perfect pied-à-terre for two. The rate for the entire week of Feb 3-9 is only $1,400, or you can choose 4 nights for $250/night (Wine Gang discounts apply). There is only one spot available so act fast! Just email Lisa if you are interested.

Wine of the Month

With the release of our new website a few months ago, we initiated a Wine of the Month, which offers exclusive web specials for that specific wine for a particular month. This month, to celebrate the holidays, we are offering FREE SHIPPING on four or more bottles of our 2007 Blackjack Pasture Cabernet Sauvignon! So check out our new website and while you’re at it stock up on some great Blackjack to help you celebrate the holidays.

Jack’s Saddlebag – Man of Peace

This month the world lost a wonderful humanitarian in Nelson Mandela. Not only did he triumph against tremendous adversity and a 27-year imprisonment, but he taught the world a lesson in forgiveness through his profound compassion and generosity. His non-violent battle against apartheid and discrimination transformed not only a nation but influenced the world. Although his own light may have extinguished, the brightness that he has left will shine forever. We can only hope that his inspiration will help propel our societies to greater understanding and that one day the power of those who preach hatred and oppression will be subdued by the values and goodness of the majority of human beings who strive to live in harmony and peace. May this holiday season bring you all joy, health and happiness.
