Bonjourno Amici. We have almost made it through the week. Thanks for all the great feedback on my last post featuring my favorite places to go in Sonoma. It got me thinking though, all of you BFFFFL's are all over the country and beyond and some of y'all want to get in on some of that specialwinethatdoesn'tcomeinaboxfrom7-11 action but can't necessarily make it to NorCal. Well, I have your answer! That answer my friends is Block 122. I know y'all are all: "Angie, WTH is Block 122?" Well, it's only the best idea ever. Have you ever stood in your wine aisle and thought to yourself, "where do I even start with this stuff?" and then you end up with that shittacular Barefoot wine and a raging headache the next morning. Well, life doesn't need to be like that anymore. How would you like someone who knows what they are talking about to help you carefully curate a wonderful selection of vino for you to enjoy at home? That is where Block 122 comes in to play.
So what exactly is Block122? I'll let them tell you: "Block 122 is a unique virtual wine store that takes the risk out of trying new wines. Our motto is: No Snobbery. No Robbery. We’ll share down-to-earth, industry expert reviews and in-depth articles on every wine we sell, and much more. Even better, we can offer direct access to some of the best and most highly allocated wines on the West Coast, at lower prices than can be found on the Web or in most wine shops. We truly believe that it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg to drink fantastic wine. What’s more, at Block122, we know that a love of wine doesn’t start and end with a sale. Our mission is to encourage a vibrant social conversation about wine and the living craft that is winemaking. So even if you’re not looking to buy wine, stop by Block122 to find stimulating articles, photos and videos featuring some of the top sommeliers, winemakers and wine writers in the business. Think of Block122 as your place on the Web to find real info and useful tools for wine education, whether you’re a casual wine drinker or a seasoned pro."
