Instant Wine Cellar Featuring Premium Wines of Europe!
Just imagine acquiring a one of a kind instant wine cellar created by local wine expert Jim Whittaker, with 3 cases of premium wines from some of the finest regions of FRANCE, ITALY, and SPAIN! Think Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Rhone, Tuscany, Sicily, Rioja, Priorat, and more! Each specially selected bottle in this cellar has earned significant kudos in the form of 90+ scores from the likes of The Wine Spectator, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, and Wine & Spirits Magazine. Many of these bottles would fetch prices of $40 to $60 or more each, and many would be near impossible for the average wine buyer to find. We’ve done the research and the legwork for you, and removed the guesswork. Win this and you’ll know every bottle is a winner, you’ll enjoy every single drop, and help a great cause in the process!
