We finally made it to the BevMo 5cent Wine Sale! Believe it or not this is only my second Wine Sale as I wasn’t too familiar with the excitement surrounding the sale, but a couple of my girlfriends were kind enough to educate me. We took a lunchtime field trip to the San Ramon store and then that weekend I just happened to “need” to go to the Pleasanton and Livermore locations. This time around Rob and I (just) went to the Livermore location last weekend and came out with a case. Livermore is a little smaller than the Pleasanton and San Ramon stores so you have to go down the aisles looking for the red tag indicating 5cent sale as opposed to a large floor display right when you walk in, but the employees are extremely helpful and happy to make recommendations.
If you follow us on Twitter -@WineTasteBliss – you will see that we have already opened one of our purchases. Both bottles of the 2010 Heliotrope Pinot Noir are gone and were smooth and easy to drink (remember, I’m a new red wine drinker). We wanted a Pinot Noir and I selected it based on how clean and simple the label was.

Her reviews will be casual, just like her. Descriptions will be basic and typically consist of a great place to drink said wine.
