Charlotte: Winestore, anyone been? What are your fave deals?

They opened a Blakeney location in my neck of the woods about a year or so ago(they also have a Southpark Morrison location). I've been going quite regularly and I have to say that I love this concept. Great bargain wines and a locally grown & owned venture between two Charlotte dudes. The tasting machines are a fun way to try several different wines affordably. The owner is often in the store and he's a fun guy to chat with about food and wine. This past Saturday they did a Silver Oak blind tasting and it was amazing! They had 8 bottles wrapped in foil and hooked up to the tasting machine - one was an '06 Silver Oak Alx Valley. The cost was $14 and interestingly enough I picked out the Silver Oak - mostly by color (I also thought it had a short palate). But my favorite of the 8 was a bottle called '08 Rockus Bockus Proprietary Red - $12.99/bottle!

I have gotten a few wines at pretty great prices too. '09 The Prisoner - $25, and a Portuguese wine for $40('04 Niepoort Batuta Douro) that I had at the famed Alinea in Chicago where it was $25/glass. Occasionally he is able to offer these great wines at low prices.

Anyway, if y'all haven't been, check it out. Here's a link to their website:
