Choosing the right glass for the right alcoholic beverage is similar to using the right utensil during a formal dinner. Just about any of them will get the job done, but you don’t want to get dirty looks for using the wrong one.

Most of these glasses weren’t designed to achieve a certain look. They were designed with certain heights, widths, curves and stems to help the drinker fully appreciate what’s in the glass – the aroma, the dominant and subtle flavors, the texture, and in some cases, the carbonation.

Here is a simple guide to help you serve wine, beer, liquor and cocktails in the proper glasses.

Mulderbosch is South Africa’s most famous producer of Sauvignon Blanc, in essence putting South Africa on the map, and their Sauvignon Blanc stands up to the best examples of this variety from anywhere around the world.

Two things caught my eye about today’s offer: First, the price on the 2011 has plummeted-originally $20/bottle, it is now $10.95/bottle, a difference of 45%! Second, Mulderbosch is owned by Charles Banks, former owner of Screaming Eagle, so expect to see more of today’s wine gracing the lists of some of the finest restaurants in NYC and Las Vegas!

Don’t waste your time on searching out other Sauvignon Blanc-today’s wine is a classic, AND a great deal that cannot be beaten! Cheers-

Today, I am offering a $39 Six-Pack Summer White Wine Deal from one of Spain’s most famous wine regions, the place that El Nido CLIO made famous: Jumilla! Regularly $10/bottle, the 2010 Hacienda del Carche’s ‘KE’ BLANCO drops to $39/6 pack ($6.50/bottle)-that’s 35% OFF the regular price, folks.

Hacienda del Carche’s winemaking tradition dates back to the 19th Century. They’ve been DOMINATING this wine growing region ever since, and it showed in my tasting of today’s juicy and zesty “Perfect for the Summer” kind of white wine. Act Now on this “Great Value” 6-pack deal. Supplies are limited. Cheers.

**Take note: Today’s deal is different from ALL THE OTHERS: I just learned that Wine Spectator (in their August 2012 issue) is scoring the 2011 Achaval-Ferrer Malbec 92 points. NOBODY CAN TOUCH MY PRICE of $14.95 on this KILLER MALBEC. This will be the BEST $15 you spend all year, but you’ve gotta move fast-allocations are being fiercely guarded on this one, clearly one of the hottest acquisitions in the wine world right now!

If you don’t already know Achaval Ferrer, listen up: Six years ago, James Molesworth of Wine Spectator SINGLED OUT Achaval-Ferrer as Argentina’s TOP winery for its role in the country’s wine revolution. In December 2010, Jay Miller of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate named Achaval-Ferrer as “Best of the Best” for “exploring Mendoza’s best terroirs for Malbec”! We’re talking about Argentinian ROYALTY here, folks. DO NOT BE LEFT OUT on this one. Act Now.

Today’s deal is your last shot at one of the best “Champagne” values in all of France! For over 100 years, Varichon & Clerc has been making this smooth and creamy “Method Champenoise” Sparkler in the Pre-Alps between Lyon and Geneva at a FRACTION of the price of their neighbors to the west.

Effective July 1st, PRICING IS GOING WAY UP: Varichon & Clerc will be $13.99. But with me, today, it is $8.99 – that’s 36% off July’s price increase!!! Just like the Prosecco deal I ran two weeks ago, this is the perfect Summer Sparkler.  Act Now.  Cheers.

I have in my possession the ONLY Italian Wine selected as a Smart Buy/90ptr in the upcoming June issue of Wine Spectator. Wine Spectator’s “SMART BUYS” are NOT Cheapo’ wines, but are chosen out of many for their EXTRAORDINARY Quality:Price Ratio. The same winery nailed a top spot in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wines of 2008 and is part of this year’s Wine Spectator Wine Experience National Tour. I’m talking about the 2010 Suavia Winery’s Soave Classico, and today’s one shot price reduction makes this a no-brainer white for the season.

Originally $16/bottle, I am slicing 38% off the price, bringing it to $9.99/bottle! MARK MY WORDS: You’ll will be hard pressed to find a better $10 bottle of Italian White anywhere-translation: BUY THIS IN QUANTITY!!!! Cheers.

Please take a moment to check out my new:
