Each wine available at Wine Discount Center is hand-picked and rated on the same 100-point scale used in national publications such as Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator. Though the Wine Discount Center only stocks fermentations rated higher than 85, the majority of bottles are straight-A students. Some of the finer selections include a 94-point 2008 Beringer "Private Reserve" Napa Valley chardonnay ($25.99), which tickles the palate with a delicate mixture of brioche, hazelnut, marmalade, and fruit flavors. The 93-point 2007 Flora Springs "Trilogy" blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and petit verdot ($42.99) is blended with hints of cocoa, cedar, and licorice, with a finish far more satisfying than that of most three-part films. Warm up a chilly evening with a helping of hearty, beefy stew paired with an imported bottle of 2004 Piazzo "Sottocastello di Novello" Barolo riserva ($29.99).
Since 1984, Wine Discount Center's knowledgeable staff has devoted its time and stemware to selecting the perfect wines for any budget or occasion. Ask about celebratory chardonnays, holiday merlots, or "Sorry I painted your parakeet" bottles of zinfandel. Be sure to drop in on a weekly in-store tasting at any of the stores.
Yelpers give the Wine Discount Center an average of 4.5 stars:
- …Combines the customer service of a small store with the buying and pricing power of the big boys. The staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable regarding the inventory, and the prices on the wine are, hands down, the best in the city… – Eric B.
Wine Discount Center
The experts at Wine Discount Center taste wine like it’s their job—because it is, actually. Every month, they taste hundreds of wines, assessing each one’s color, aroma, flavor, body, knowledge of American history, and finish in the same manner that the critics of Wine Spectator and Wine Advocate use to grade wines on their 100-point scales. This never-ending sampling and scoring lets Wine Discount Center’s team continually update and hone the selection at each location, regularly announcing new finds on the company's website and ensuring each bottle it stocks is worthy of 85 points or more. The oenophiles further enhance guests’ enjoyment of their wines by leading in-store tastings every Saturday at noon.
