Gold Medal Wine Club has a new club: Garagiste (pronounced gar-uh-zheest'), and I had the privilege of receiving and reviewing this club.
Most of the time, Todd, Tricia and I can easily review clubs, but Garagiste was a bit intimidating. Something with a fancy name like this must mean something, so I went to my expert, Josh, and talked about this wine club (and one of the wines) with him:
Josh and I opened the Vaughn Duffy 2012 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir (Retail $39 / Gold Medal $33). Vaughn Duffy only produced 169 cases of this wine, which could be enjoyed now through 2020. At $33, this is a pricier bottle of wine, but worth every penny.
The Garagiste Series from Gold Medal Wine Club starts at $75 per shipment, which gives you 2 bottles every other month. Order 6+ shipments (1 year) and receive a stainless corkscrew and gift box with code ARTISAN.
