WTSO and Last Bottle have their threads, so time to put one up for Costco. Varies from location to location and in SF we are lucky to have the Mtn View and Redwood City stores which have great selections and some attractive pricing.....plus you get Costco's "we'll take any return" policy and rapid turnover. As a casual observation, it does seem like they are picking up more Old World wines these days with the much cheaper Euro FX.

High end Bordeaux, DRC, mags of Schafer Hillside, 2013 Scarecrow and $20K bottles of Scotch.....something for everyone.

To kick it off here is what is currently available based on the Mtn View/Redwood City stores:

2013 Trimbach Riesling $15.99
2014 Pink Pégau $14.99
2011 Villa Antinori Chianti Riserva $19.99
2013 Produtti Barbaresco $25.99
2014 Livio Fellga Pinot Grigio $17.99
2012 Au Bon Climat Nuits Blanches au Bouge Chard $24,99
2013 or 2014 Sojourn Campbell Ranch PN $44.99
Krug Grand Cuvée NV 169.99
Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Sparkler $17.99 (occasionally on promo for $15.89)
Stags Leap Petite Sirah $18,99

The Irvine (in the District) and Fountain Valley ones have really become a wasteland for the wine geek in the last year or two. Sure, there are wines worth drinking and sometimes good pricing, but other than 2010 Montus Madiran earlier this year for a short while, there has been basically nothing to get excited about as a wine geek.

Martin, the Redwood City store has had bottles of La Tâche, Grand Echezeaux and Echezeaux off and on over the past couple of years. At some point I had noted the prices, but the only one I can find is $1499 for a 2009 G-E.. The next time I see it, I will ping you.

The most expensive bottle I of anyting I have seen there was for an Johnnie Walker 1805 Blue Label for $19,999.....and the lady in the wine section told me a customer came in and took two bottles.

Both Scottsdale AZ Costcos have a ton of the 2014 Cameron Hughes lot 522 Contra Costa Field Blend. At $9.99, it's seriously in the running for best QPR ever. Rasberry and dark savory fruis with plenty of complexity and a decent streak of acidity. Should also age well, as I've found them better on days 2 and even 3.

Already bought a case and a half and will more than likely grab more.

Freaking love Costco.

Sacramento/Exhibition had the 2012 CH Private Rsv for $40 last time I was in there maybe 10 days ago. Still has lots of 2010 Montus to (mentioned above). Supposedly the CH Moscato is getting dumped at $5 too, but I did not verify that locally. Mine did not have the 2010 Damilano unf. A lot of the Treasury Wine Estate names are getting blown out at about the same price as the producers website case specials.

I was in the Roseville location about a week ago too, and that had a somewhat better/different selection, although I did not remember any deals in particular, beyond the 2012 Haut Bergey rouge for $20.

Great thread!

a split is 187 ml. A 375 is a "half bottle."

Culver City/Marina del Rey Costco has relatively little of interest. A fair number of Sta Rita Hills, Firestone, Fess Parker, etc. They've radically slimmed down their wine selection in the last couple years. Hopefully once they finish their expansion/remodel they will up the selection again.

One interesting bottle today was a 2005 Southern Rhone bottle for $25. CT said average value of $18, though, so I left it there. I suspect the $18 bottles were purchased in, say, 2008.

Decided to check out Mountain View, CA Costco for the first time in years based on this thread. Surprised to see the the kind of selection they have now.

Solaia $168
Beringer Private Reserve Mag $199
Bryant Family $730
Scarecrow $550
2010 Pavie $360

None of the prices for the higher end didn't seem that great.

2012 C.V.N.E. Rioja Cune Reserva $14.99 Austin South
2009 La Rioja Alta Rioja Viña Alberdi Reserva $12.99 Austin South when a random under $15 buy ends up very good; we are in over a case now on this one [cheers.gif]

Sunnyvale Costco has
Haut Smith Laffite's second wine, Le Petit 2012 for $22
2007 Cristal for $190 which isn't that great of a deal but if you value their return policy its an okay buy.
They also had some Montus left if you guys were still looking.

Thanks Rich but fair warning to the rest of Board that this wine (Lot 522 2014 Contra Costa Zin/Petite Sirah/Syrah) is only currently available in Costco's in AZ and the San Diego area currently. Hope to get into NorCal Costco's here shortly...of course, its on our website as well.

Curious, since you've had your wines in Costco for some time now, do you have to pitch each individual sale to each Costco? I figured they would have a set order for each store of x number of cases per release.

Costco has eight regional buyers and each is pitched individually...from there you can talk about which stores the product goes into...I find actually find myself asking more often to NOT include stores that I think won't move the product because, when you get product hung up in Costco, that ties the buyers hands from adding other SKU's, most likely from you. As you can imagine, their offerings are very tightly managed.

Not to Costco in that area in many many years...buyers call out of Florida. Website best option for GA as we are licensed to ship there. Mix-and-match a case and its $10/case shipping in continental US. When we release new wines there is a 15% discount as long as you add one bottle of the new release. Put a bottle of the just released Lot 605 Howell Mountain Cab for $35 in your case and you'll trigger the 15% discount at checkout. Cheers,
CH

Ravenswood Teldeschi 2012 at Livermore Costco for $19.99.

But, I pretty much cleaned them out last night. Possibly other locations might have some.

Love that price. I would have done the same. Nice purchase!

I've more or less given up on the Costco near me (Bloomingdale in the Chicago area). Haven't seen anything of note in a few years now...unless I'm just not going enough... Or they've given up because there are so many Binny's stores in the Chicago area.

Roederer Estate Anderson Valley Sparkler $17.99 (occasionally on promo for $15.89)
Not bad at 15.89. Morelli's in St. Paul will have it at 15.99 on occasion and Total Wine and Haskell's will price match.

Total Wine in the Twin Cities is killing Costco. Much larger selection and similar prices if not better. Costco struggles in my opinion due to the fact they have people that don't have a clue about wine. They need to hire a wine expert that can rebrand what they are doing.
