HARRISBURG Pa., March 30, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Beginning in April, the Fine Wine & Good Spirits "First Taste" program will allow e-commerce customers at FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com an exclusive, 24-hour opportunity every other month to buy a choice Chairman's Selection® wine online, weeks before the product becomes available in stores.
To debut "First Taste," Domaine Les Verrières Les Sept Fontaines 2008 will be available for online purchase only from 10 a.m. Monday, April 3, to 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 4. This French red, which received 91 points from Wine Spectator Online in 2013 and is quoted at $20, is available for $11.99 per bottle, a savings of $8.01.
Steve Pollack, wine buyer for the Chairman's Selection program, which features select, highly rated wines at significant savings over nationally quoted prices, calls this wine "a pretty yet powerful red from Languedoc, a region in southern France."
To receive notification of First Taste opportunities every other month, customers must register at FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com and subscribe to email notifications. Each First Taste opportunity will be announced by email in advance of the 24-hour online sale, and First Taste orders will be processed the week of the online sale.
