I’m always on the look out for a good bottle of wine. Like over the weekend when I stopped to buy my husband beer and stumbled upon a wine tasting. I couldn’t help but stop and chat with the sommelier and taste some, OK all, of the wines he was offering. One of the things I love about a wine tasting is that the person leading the tasting always has great insight into wine and always helps me find the best bottle of wine at my price point.

When I was given the opportunity to try Last Bottle Wines, I loved the idea of having access to wine that is hand-picked by people who know Napa Valley wines. Last Bottle Wines works with wineries to bring high quality wines at value pricing to wine lovers.
How Does Last Bottle Wines Work?
Each day there is an offer that members can purchase at an extremely discounted price. For example today’s deal retails for $60 but is on Last Bottle for $24, a huge savings. You also earn a 2% credit for each bottle you purchase which you can use towards future bottles, if a friend signs up and orders from Last Bottle Wines then you earn more credits. I love the idea of getting credit for your friends enjoying a great bottle of wine. Additionally if you happen to purchase the last bottle in the case you get a $25 credit, how cool is that?
The Last Bottle Wines I Tried
I recently tried three wines from Last Bottle Wines, the Saddleback Pinot Grigio, the Cornerstone Pinot Noir, and the Poulvarel Domaine Blanc Costieres de Nimes White Rhone.
The White Rhone was a wine that I had never tried before and of the three wines it was my favorite. I love Viognier and this White Rhone was made with it. If you are a fan of Viognier you will enjoy this wine or if you are looking for a white wine that is unexpected this is the perfect pick.
The Saddleback Pinot Grigio was smooth with hints of citrus, think lemons and limes. This wine had me excited for summer time, sitting poolside and enjoying some seafood. It would definitely be the perfect sipper for your seafood bake or late day pool party.
My husband enjoyed the Cornerstone Pinot Noir which combined the tastes of cherry and raspberries but still managed to have a tangy and almost spicy flavor. After having Grace a few weeks ago, I’m struggling to get back into red wines so this wasn’t a favorite for me.
What I Liked About Last Bottle Wines:
- High quality wines at a price that I can stomach. I hate going to a wine tasting and discovering that the bottle I love is well above my price point.
- Free shipping on all qualifying purchases (usually 3-6 bottles depending on price).
- Commitment to quality. Not only are the wines hand-picked but Last Bottle will hold your shipment in the event the weather is too warm to ship the wine. That way your wine won’t be ruined when it gets to you.
- Each bottle arrived with a sheet telling me about the wine. When you view the offer for a bottle of wine it also has detailed tasting notes and information about the wine. This gives you the feel of having a pro with you when you are tasting the wine.
Last Bottle Wines helps bring the wine tasting experience to your home by having someone who knows the wineries and the wines, pick bottles that they know wine drinkers will enjoy.
