Tim's Wine Market

For the holidays I like to feature classic wines, and this year we have a couple of stunning selections. Both wines are red Bordeaux and while I chose them because they are both exceptional, the difference in price is why I put them together. As a crow flies the two properties are only a few miles apart, but those lying in the Entre-Deux-Mers do not command the same price as “better” appellations, in this case Lalande-de-Pomerol. Yet one is almost twice the price, not because of quality or farming costs, it is almost exclusively because of the address.

Enjoy both of these selections with your favorite holiday meal, and on behalf of all of the franchisees and employees we wish you a wonderful holiday season
