Wine comes in glass bottles and every so often one of those bottles breaks spreading it contents across the other bottles in a box. If you have a warehouse full of wine these stained labels eventually stack up. One of our suppliers had such a pile and they offered the wine to us at discount. Realizing that you don’t drink the label, we went for it. Here they are, limited quantities but good values.. First come, first served.
