    Francesco Wines - Limited deal

    A vineyard I've been following for sometime now has decided to put up some insane prices for their wine. I've mentioned them on here a number of times, We did our entire wedding with them and it was a screaming hit. Their whites are good to go now, but their reds have aged incredibly well...

    Can you suggest a $50 wine better than Penfolds RWT?

    Seriously, I was getting RWT at $30-35 ten years ago, inflation has not tripled prices. Each to their own but I can think of wines $30-$50 better than RWT. Don't get me wrong, it's a very nice wine but what it isn't is a great wine and that's what I want for close to $100.

    Qantas Wine... I smell a rat
