Wine Discounts

        Voted "Best Wines in Burke", we are proud of our selection of hand-picked wines, both domestic and imported.  Although we carry many upper tier and boutique wines, for the past few years we have been on a mission to find great value-oriented wines in the $8 - $12 range.  Come check out our "finds" and let us know how we're doing!  We think you'll be pleased with our unique offerings.  

        Purchase 6 bottles of wine (half case) for a 5% discount, or purchase 12 bottles of  the same wine (full case) for a 20% discount (yes, that's right. . . TWENTY percent!)

        If you don't want a full case of the same wine, buy a Mixed Case for 15% off!

        Check out our wine page and look for our wine of the month, too.

Coffee Club

       Try our heavenly arabica coffee, either ground or whole bean.  We'll keep a record of your purchases and when you reach 10 pounds, you'll receive the 11th pound FREE!  Check out our coffee page.
