Shop the TOP FIVE wine trends of 2020
To get the full scoop on these top 5 wine trends, read our blog. But, while we have you, here's how you can buy these stand out wines.
1. 2019s from Burgundy.
Burghound suggests that these are the greatest Burgundies since the 2010s, and that “it would be a significant mistake to pass on them.”
And, unlike 2010 or 2005 before it, the most compelling 2019s might be wines you can actually purchase and afford. Watch out for our offers, because with press like this, the 2019s will come and go fast!

2. “Edgy” Regions: Hungary, Greece, & Sicily.
Hungary, Greece and Sicily have so much to offer that they have moved beyond the status of curiosity and now really belong in the pantheon of great wine regions that deserve a lot of attention. We expect even more new wines to reach the U.S. in 2021 and this is the year to start taking advantage.
3. Loire Valley Reds & 2019 Sancerre.
So what from the Loire to focus on this year? Well, 2018s and 2019s are across the board great for red wines (so Saumur, yes, but also Chinon and Bourgeuil where the values are, if anything, even better). And for white wines we are loving 2019 Sancerres – not just for simple bistro sipping but also, from the right producers, of course – cellaring!
4. Brunello di Montalcino 2016s.
I have seen the prices, and they continue to remain very favorable, barely up or not at all up from recent vintages. I wish I had stocked up when the 2010s were released six years ago, because those wines are amazing to drink now; I will not make the same mistake with 2016s.
5. West Coast Chardonnays.
Chardonnay is back, and this time the movement is being led by artisans, no oak-chips added. And it turns out that California – and Oregon – can produce incredibly fine Chardonnay when the grape is treated with seriousness and respect.
