Untangled Vine

An attempt to sort through all things wine. Specifically of, and about, but not limited to: Food and Wine in Toledo, Ohio. Plus the day to day musings of a Wine Distributor...
 

Keepin' "the man" in check!

Mark over at Uncorked at The Dayton Daily News has really touched on an interesting story about Trader Joes, and the evil monolith that is corporate wine programs. Ok, good and evil, who can tell, but the consumer would never deal with this experience from a local wine shop. The dirty little secret is that Trader JOes wine program isn't all that different that Big Lots. It's often liquidated wines that may be perfectly fine, or terribly flawed. Wineries know that if a wine is ruined, they can just slap an anonymous label on it and sell it for a depply discounted price at TJ's. Please check out the link above.

Hi Adam-
Yeah, there is truth here that is worth pursuing. And the fact that TJ's doesn't really tell people that is what they are doing is annoying. Still, when I first started drinking wine, TJ's was my shop of choice because I knew no better and had little money to spend on my burgeoning new passion. There are some real bargains at TJ's and the fun part for me now is that I know a little more and can find those. Lane Tanner, for instance--for whatever reason, has sold TJ's a lot of her Lano Rouge which is a blend of Pinot Noir and Syrah. It is one of the best wines--for price--I've had and at 11.99, it is really extraordinary.
