The First Quarterly Sale of the year begins Friday February 24th and runs through Sunday March 5th.

See newsletter page for details.

Our main focus at The Wine Cask is to deliver value. We believe that value in wine is not defined by the lowest price; rather it’s where quality and reasonable price coincide.

We were one of the first stores to publish a monthly newsletter that included great-value ‘Wines of the Month,’ and we still do it. During the forty years we have been serving our customers in Somerville and Cambridge the wine world has grown immensely, and we have grown with it. The diversity of wine is its greatest virtue and we seek it all over the world.

We travel the world visiting wine regions and attending trade shows whenever possible. We have attended the annual Loire Valley trade show in Angers, Vin Expo in Bordeaux, and Vini Sud in Montpelier multiple times. We annually attend Vin Italy. We have traversed Spain numerous times. In addition, staff members have visited Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, South Africa, Australia, Germany, Austria, and Hungary. These experiences have taught us a great deal about wine and food and how they can best be matched.

Our store has around two thousand different wines to choose from, and almost all of them have been tasted by a staff member. If you don’t see what you’re looking for we are more than happy to special order a single bottle for you.

Wines of the Month

2015 Côtes de Gascogne (Domaine de Millet)
Sale Price $7.99 – $86.29 case of twelve

Domaine de Millet’s zesty blend of Colombard and Ugni Blanc combines citrusy fruit and a crisp dry finish. Great with pan fried fish or a spicy curry.

2014 Coteaux du Pont du Gard Merlot (Domaine de la Patience)
Sale Price $9.99 – $107.89 case of twelve

This organic southern French Merlot caught us off guard with its rich, plummy fruit and long, smooth finish. Try this with steak tacos or a fancy burger.

2015 Ventoux (Grange des Dames) Sale Price $8.99 – $97.09 case of twelve
Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah make up this fine red from the slopes of Mont Ventoux. Its earthy, herbal, dry flavors are ideal for a lamb stew along with spicy chick peas and lentils.

2014 Red Blend (Los Cardos)
Sale Price $8.99 – $97.09 case of twelve

Los Cardos’ Red Blend is a Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah mix that is ripe and fruity with fine moderating tannins. Have this with a dried fruit-stuffed pork loin.
