Did you buy the half-bottles at Costco as well? The only time I see any 375s is around x-mas and it's normally giant producers (Kim Crawford and Mionetto prosecco the last two years).
No, I got the 375ml Caparzo's online. I'm not sure I've ever seen 375s at Costco, even around X-mas (when they typically bring in the same 3-4 large format wines--Cambria Pinot, La Crema Chardonnay, a low-rent Banfi (Centine or Col di Sasso), Freemark Abby Cab or Merlot, and Kendall Jackson Grand Reserve Chardonnay).

2015 Vaso Cabernet Sauvignon (2nd wine of Dana Estate) at West Plano and Southlake for $64.99

Had one this week, and it is quality and worth every penny.
Thanks for the heads up. Picked up a few of these ($67.99 here) and a Fontodi Vigna del Sorbo at the Houston Galleria location.

I also picked up the 2016 Fontodi 'Vigna del Sorbo' CCR at the Dallas location for $87.99 (or possibly $89.99, not positive).....About $10-$20 under 'market price' and by all accounts a great wine, although I usually prefer Cepparello for the same price or a few $ less....

Nothing new/exciting. I will say I've been enjoying the hell out of the $23 2009 Beronia Rioja Gran Reserva. Every time I drink a bottle, I go back for 3-4 more. Easy drinking, crowd pleasing....

I have been avoiding Costco in 2020, but curious if anyone will see the 2020 Costco Wine Advent calendar and can share what's in it?

Has anyone seen Domaine Carneros Brut at the DFW Costco's? I picked some up during a road trip in Colorado but couldn't find any when I got back to DFW.

Also saw the Dana Vaso Cab for 67.99 at Fort Worth and now seeing the large format bottles coming out for the holidays. No wine Advent calendar but beer one is out. Hoping to find the 3L Kirkland Prosecco here too.
Blips and Chitz!!!

I found some 375ml's of Valdicava 2013 Brunello at the Costco in La Quinta, CA. Pretty cool, as I haven't seen any 375mls of any good wines at Costco before.

Chalk that one up in the win column. Cost? Normally see 375s at a bit of a premium but Costco's buying power negates that at times.

Cost was $50, which I am pretty sure was just half the price of what I paid for the full 750mls

2016 Chateau Saint-Hubert Saint-Emilion for $18.99. This has a ton of black-fruited flavor and a moderate amount of oak, and it is made in a modern style. This is a nice cellar defender.

Yes I am signed up and get his reviews....they are OK at best. Interesting, but stores vary alot. Some wines he rates are not available at the stores I go to. I found his review of North 46 Cabernet spot on.

I was just in Colorado and stopped in the Colorado Springs Costco. They had the 2016 Fontodi Chianti Classico for $29.99, the 2016 San Giusto a Rentennano Percarlo for $79.99 and the 2016 Fonterutoli Siepi for $89.99. Also, the 2017 El Enemigo Chardonnay for under $20 (I think it was $16.99, but am not 100% certain). I picked up a bottle of the latter and it turned out to be great....too late now, but I wish I'd bought a case.

Found this at the south Denver/Park Meadows Costco. They’d had it for $249 forever and finally dropped the price. I may or may not have returned to buy one more. [head-bang.gif] Happy hunting!

Wow that has to be the best price I've ever seen for the 2016. I would literally buy every bottle at that price (God help me if I see it at my local CostCo!)

Visited the Costco in LA and they had received the 2017s. Too bad someone bought the entire case before I got there. Still can't believe there was a 2016 left in CO

Which Costco in CO was it? I might have to call in a favor to a friend out there.

Costco in Oceanside, NY didn’t have any. They did have the Kirkland Red Blend which is tasty for $10.99.
