Market Street Wines of the Week

Each week, Market Street Wine Shop of Charlottesville runs a special on some mid-range quality wines at deeply discounted prices. The wines are usually quit drinkable and quite a bargain. I'm reposting their announcement here because I am a frequent patron and usually love their picks for the Wines of the Week. C-Ville Wine Blog receives no compensation for publicizing the Market Street Wine Shop...yet ;-)

Wines of the Week (February 17-24)

Silene Cococciola Terre di Chieti 2007
...Tastes Like Co-Co-Ciola*
The port of Ortona lies due east of Rome on the Adriatic coast in the Terre di Chieti wine region of Abruzzi. There the local white wine is this ancient grape variety Cococciola. Pale in color, this simple white is delightfully fresh and clean with notes of apple and melon with a touch of white citrus and herbal notes. Enjoy as an aperitif or with all types of seafood dishes, shellfish, & white meats.

On Sale at $4.96
FOR TWO WEEKS, thru 3/02/09
regularly $5.99
Open for tasting all week

Alamos Malbec Mendoza 2007
Headed for the Gallos II
The Alamos label came from the world-class Catena winery of Mendoza, Argentina ... now sadly sold to Gallo. In France, Malbec is a minor Bordeaux grape variety; but in Argentina, Malbec is a star. With a nose of blackberry and black cherry, a lush body and ripe blackfruits on the palate, it cries out for Argentine asado, or barbecue. Buy now and our friends Alfredo and Alex Bartholomaus get the sale and not the Gallos.

On Sale at $7.96
