The wines you have to try!

We set out on our latest trip to California wine country with one goal in mind: find a new, outstanding, but very affordable wine that our customers will not only enjoy, but LOVE. The trip took us through the famous wine regions of Napa, Sonoma, and Central California, where we explored a variety of vineyards from the well-known and established to smaller, less recognizable, family-run operations. Our hope was to discover a wine that over-delivered in taste, but was priced low enough to appeal to all our customers…yes, we were in search of that ever-elusive wine that tasted like a $25 bottle, but was priced at $10 or less!
After days of searching, we were beginning to wonder if our goals were too ambitious when we discovered these wonderful California wines at a winery that also showcased some outstanding Italian imports. It was love at first sip – if you know what I mean – and we could not wait to introduce you to Crushed and Swoon, two new lines of wine offered only at Foodland:.

A spark of creativity, a dash of genius, and the sure hand of artisanal craftsmanship come together in Crushed wines. With the allure of a fresh harvest, these wines are fitting to pour on a special occasion while being affordable enough to pour just because…
