With all those sunny spells over the weekend, it may well time to crank up the BBQ and we’ve got plenty of BBQ wines to accompany the food at Cases – just ask us!

Plus, we have our ’30 Deals for the 30 Days of April’ still running to help you stock up for the big holiday weekends. Check out the deals below.

We’ll also have a real treat open on the Tasting Counter at Cases this weekend. Les Obriers de la Peira 2005. This big red from the Languedoc has achieved near legendary status in recent years and rather than hyping it any more, I’ll leave it to the critics:

‘This is one of those wines that normally restrained people fight over at the dinner table.’

John Wilson, Irish Times, April 2011

‘amazing value which I cannot imagine any wine lover not wishing to buy as much of as he or she could’, 92 Points

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, June 2009

“the Les Obriers de la Peira will blow your socks off and set a new benchmark for what wines from the Languedoc can taste like. For me, the freshness was out of this world. It’s an exquisite, “luxury” wine and one that everyone should try, at least once. Wine of the year?”

Lar Veale, Sour Grapes, December 2010

We only have a case of this limited production classic, selling at €21.95 per bottle, so first come first served!
