Due to our low, low prices and warehouse-style layout, many people mistakenly compare our store to “Pirate John’s”, a chain of natural food liquidators who dabble in the wine business. While we also buy our cheese and dried fruit there and often feature merchandise from bankruptcies and close-outs here, we beg to differ with their theory that cooked $20 dollar wine becomes a good value if they sell it for $2.99. Sorry, “John”, that just makes it cheap bad wine! You can be confident that every label in our store represents ten that we tasted and didn’t buy as we are always on the lookout for distressed merchants not distressed merchandise, a crucial distinction. Remember our motto: “We taste the bad wine so you don’t have to!”
