At times, even a catastrophe has a silver lining. With the coronavirus basically shutting down most restaurants in the country, wine sales have almost virtually disappeared. This is particularly difficult for brands that are sold exclusively to restaurants, in this case, our Grand Lux Cafe selection.
Grand Lux Cafe is a chain of restaurants with multiple locations in nine states. They can feature their own wine at a higher profit because nobody can compare the price to that of a wine shop or Wine of the Month clubs, and the winery sells it for less because they have a guaranteed sale, until they don't. Restaurants love these brands. Often, it is exactly the same as a wine with the winery's name on it. However, when the restaurant business stopped, the winery making that wine has to sell it somewhere and that's where we came in.
They asked us and we jumped at it. Why? Because it's made by Beringer, one of the top wineries in Napa Valley whose Cabernets are famous all over the world and the Grand Lux is about half the price of the Beringer Cabernet.
The wine says Beringer all over it. Those unmistakable earth and black cherry notes sing right pass the sweet vanilla, spice rack and leather to form an incredible offering just waiting for the last summer barbeque.
