Happy Holidays Everyone from deVines!!

I’ve always been fascinated with big bottles at any event, it immediately adds that feeling of something special going on – partly because the size infers lots of people, fun and joviality amongst friends and relatives.

Also, wines from magnums and even bigger formats usually show youth and vitality because the airspace to wine ratio is lower, and supposedly the wine ages slower.

Next time you want to celebrate, consider a magnum party. At deVine’s, we buy magnums all year long just for this time of the year. As Christmas is fast approaching, here is a very large list of available big formats at deVines for your consideration (availability is very limited, most we only have one or two bottles for sale), so shop early for the best selection as this is the part of the year when these bottlings start disappearing fast.

NV Pierre Peters Cuvée de Reserve Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut (Champagne, France) – $209.99

2018 Neil Ellis Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum (Stellenbosch, South Africa) – $59.99

2014 Château Dutruch Grand Poujeaux (Bordeaux – Moulis, France) – $104.99
