HVD & Do Yourself a Favor

Happy Valentine's Day!!

and do yourself a favor and try this wine.  It's amazing.  

We bought our first bottle in a little artsy town in western North Carolina called Black Mountain and were totally suckered in by the story and the wine expert on staff.  A cousin-out-of-wedlock to another favorite of ours, The Prisoner has a cult following and is only available until the batch runs out each year. Initially, we got taken for $50 a bottle, but were hooked so we didn't much care.  To our great surprise, we found it at Wegman's last night for $37 a bottle and snapped up a few.  

Go getcha some!



  1. Happy Valentine's Day! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love a good wine. I can't afford to get hooked on The Prisoner. You guys enjoy for me! HVD!

  3. Thank you for the wine recommendation! Western North Carolina - who knew?

  4. I am always up for a good bottle of wine recommendations. I hope they sell it near me.

  5. Happy Valentine's Day to you! Thanks for the recommendation! We have a Wegman's near us so I will ask for it!

  6. Thank you sweet daughter for the bottle of Prisoner for Valentine's Day! Your dad and I opened it last night and it is a wonderful, multi-layered, complex, and opulent wine! A wonderful change from my usual picks. xoxo Mom

  7. Shhhhhhhhh!!!!!! You're not supposed to tell anyone about this. We discovered The Prisoner several years ago and love it. In fact my husband who has been in sunny Palm Springs this week while I've been looking at snow, will come home to a late dinner and a bottle (or two?) of this wine. It's great with steak and chocolate. Another favorite is Native Nine. It's a pinot noir but it drinks like a cab. Red wine is perfect for this day of hearts: it helps raise the HDL. Enjoy your day.
