The 2022 Federal Case
Save 21% over retail price
This year's Federal Case is the best yet. From Oregon to Sicily, from Napa Valley to the slopes of an active volcano, an eclectic dozen that had been or tasted like much more expensive wines.
To start, an American Blanc de Blanc sparkler that many mistake for champagne, a Loire Sauvignon Blanc that drinks like Sancerre, two Italian seafood wines, an old vine Chablis, and a Riesling from famous producer's best vineyard.
The reds: A winning Willamette Pinot Noir, an Haut Medoc that wowed the critics, a bold and lively Rhone-like southern French red that will surprise and delight, a Chianti and Nebbiolo that represent classics from Tuscany and Piedmont, and a red Loire find that became a sleeper of a customer favorite.
It's a collection of twelve stunning wines at under $20 a bottle, plus a Federal Wine corkscrew to open them and a champagne stopper to preserve
