Vintage Wine Estates 12-Bottle Tasting Room Favorites
What a nice surprise.
Reading the reviews some were not happy with these wines so I was afraid to order. I did and loved each and everyone. I do not care for Merlots usually but this was wonderful. So happy I could get it in PA. this time. Great price also. My daughter and granddaughter and g-daughter in law talked me out of a bottle. Hope you keep doing this. Lovely wines.
I love QVC, the wine selections that I have received have been less than fair.The Cabernet in this grouping to me is undrinkable. I don't understand because I pretty much love everything at QVC. What is up with the wine. I would rather pay more for better quality. Please consider not quite sure how you can drink this stuff on air and like it.
We are enjoying these. We are not big wine drinkers. Wanted to keep some wine in the house for certain meals or company. We have had three bottles now...all were pleasing. Not knowing much about wine/ I would spend 20/30 a bottle thinking it must be good. That was not always the case. These take the guess work out of it. Thinking about another case...before these sell out. If you are not a wine snob/connoisseur you will love these. We will serve one of the reds for Easter dinner....Enjoy!
Love This Selection
This is one of my favorite buys from QVC. First time purchase of wines-but won't be my last! Very good buy and delivered right to my door with Free Shipping. What more can you ask for? The wines are delectable...Thank you for a wonderful selection. I bought whites and reds...5 stars to the winery and QVC
Etalon Cabernet...not so good
I was relieved to see that other reviewers thought that the Etalon Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 was 'bad'....as in 'spoiled'. I, too, tried all the tricks, letting the bottle breathe, aerated with a Vinturi...to no avail. Something was terribly wrong. Unfortunately, I had purchased the 'all red' 12 bottle case. Fortunately, QVC stands behind their products. My account was refunded...no questions asked and I did not have to hassle returning the heavy box...QVC does not require alcohol or food items to be returned.
I have not tried the Merlot yet, but my suspicion is that the Cab was spoiled, and the Merlot will be o.k. (Different winery)
Just as a little side note...Wine Spectator reported in an article posted on August 21, 2013, that Vintage Wine Estates had recently purchased the Clos Pegase Winery, including the remaining inventory. Hmmmmm...
I've belonged to a wine group for some years now. I'm giving this 5 stars because, for what it is, it's pretty darned good and for everyday sipping you can't beat that it comes out to basically $9 and change per bottle. This is my second purchase. I purchased the reds, especially when I noticed on TV that the Cab came from Clos Pegase (a winery where I visited and enjoyed a tasting.) I love wine...period! Cabernet Sauvignon (and its blends) are my favorites but I do love Merlot as well. Merlot got a bad rap after the movie "Sideways" and I simply can't understand why.
The price was very reasonable. Also, the convenience of having it delivered to the door was a plus. I would have liked to have ordered the combo of both red and white but I do not like Merlot.
This is very good wine, great value for this quality of wine. Enjoyed it very much. Great sipping wine.
Another great tasting set of wine!
This is my third order of wine from the Q and it did not disappoint. I am not a big fan of sweet wines so I liked the Riesling and I liked the taste of the other wines equally. I don't like a wine because some body says it's some fine wine, it's all about my taste. Keep bringing the wine to us QVC.
Right about the white
Another reviewer already said this, but to add my two cents worth: The Reisling is not line any I have had. It is dry, and thin, much more a chardonnay.
Would not buy again.
Riesling tastes more like chardonnay
I got the all white, and while the pinot grigio is nice, the riesling didn't taste like any riesling I've ever had. I've had every type, from sweet to dry, and to me, this riesling tasted heavy and dry, more like a chardonnay. So if you are hoping for a light, sweet riesling, do not get this.
I was hesitant to buy wine without having a tasting, however, this by far, exceeded my expectations. Excellent, smooth and delicious. Will purchase again and again,
