Wine Tip of the Week - Don't Forget Costco!

For those of you who are members - or have ever been in a Costco, the first thing that probably comes to mind are gallon sized mayonnaise jars, packs of 24 paper towel rolls, and blocks of cheese "the size of a car battery" (-George Costanza, Seinfeld). 

Well, next time you go in to your neighborhood Costco - don't forget to check the wine section.  I saw a special on CNBC that talked about the Costco wine program, and it was quite impressive.  They use their buying power to get good wineries to compete for their business, get the wine at a fantastic cost, and don't mark it up as much as other retailers.  Never a huge selection, but worth a look as they have a nice variety.  During my last trip, I found Charles & Charles Red, a wine I've reviewed before and at the time paid $15 at Whole Foods. I loved it and gave it an A+... the Costco price... LESS THAN $9!  I can't think of a better sub-$10 bottle of wine anywhere. No, you don't have to buy a case or more (though I may when I return) - just one bottle at a time...enjoy!
