    Best wines to cellar <$50

    Hey all, I was thinking of topping up my cellar (cool room in the middle of the house so nothing crazy) after having enjoyed some early 2000's bottles. I'm looking to spend c.$1-2k on getting some decent red wines that will start to shine after having been aged for 5-10 years. Open to styles...

    1er Grand Vin

    I have a 1er Grand Vin Pichon-Longueville 12 Biles 1877 leather wine holder/case that I found at my grandparents house. I can't find anything about them online. From the peeling I would say it's synthetic, maybe a replica or fake? Any info or links would be great

    Unable to find online presence of Grays auction wine

    I purchased some wine without much thought on grays online and then afterwards tried to find their online presence and can’t find any trace of the winery. As a new wine drinker I’m curious if this is normal? The grays auction listing has the wine listed as receiving a gold medal and a wine...
