Lets talk a little bit about the best gift you can give this Holiday Season, our Platinum Wine Club! The only wine club that fits any budget and you can pick or choose the features that suit you best. 
The Platinum Wine Club, allows you to explore the world of wine 2 bottles at a time. We give you a wine you probably know (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay) and then one that’s off the wall, something you would probably never pick up on your own, that will take you out of your comfort zone. We have done a Txakoli from Spain, a Claret from the Columbia Valley & a Gamay Beaujolais rose from Burgundy, to name a few. You can also structure the Platinum Wine Club to fit your needs! You get a sheet, explaining the wines, where they are from, tasting notes and food pairings too.  Here’s how it works:
  • The basic membership is 2 wines a month for $30.00.
  • You can also do 4 wines a month for $60.00
  • You can just do 3 month membership (2 bottles) for $90.00. The same applies for 4 bottles for $180.00, both payable in advance.
  • You can pay for 6 months in advance and get 1 month free
  • You can pay for 12 months in advance and get 2 months free
  • You can do a quarterly membership too. Getting 2 or 4 bottles a month every 3 months (4 times a year)
  • If you like the wines and want to pay more, you can purchase them, during the month they are featured at a 10% discount. 
You can pay as you go, and cancel at anytime. In 2019, we plan on adding a red club & white club. If you only are interested in red wines, that’s all you’ll get. The same for the whites. All the prior info applies to both of these clubs.

This months wine review comes from our good friend Joel Richardson. Joel is Mr. Winchester, he works at Reader Schwartz Architects & he loves this town like no one else I know, almost as much as he loves sparkly stuff! Here's his review for Jeio Cuvee Rose Brut Italian Sparkling Wine $17.59: 
Charlie knows that this summer I spent a great many nights with friends enjoying the season. I used the opportunity to try as many different varieties of Rose as possible. Jeio Rose Vino Spumante hit all of the right spots for me. It was dry, full of summery flavors (think fruit and citrus), but wasn't overpowering. It went well with snacks and lighter food- but I could completely see it paired with a dessert. It is well balanced, and great for many different palates.
The joint venture of the Wine & Book Club, between Murphys and the Winchester Book Gallery was a raging success! We met in October and enjoyed wines paired with Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential. Our next book is off the charts and one of my favorites, as well as a suggestion from a member and the girl and turned me on to it years ago, Stephanie Moran Mangino. You may remember Stephanie, pre-baby when she worked for us. Good Omens is a joint venture from Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman. It's also a soon to be released TV series which you'll want to tune in, after reading it. There's on one rule for our club, and that's that you have to purchase the book from the Winchester Book Gallery (unless you already have it). Costco & Amazon won't cut it. This club is about good literature, good wine and COMMUNITY! Get to the Book Gallery's new location (7 North Loudoun), buy the book and save the date Jan 9th at 6pm. Charlie will pair the wines and we'll meet at the Book Gallery!
