2016 Department 66 Grenache Cotes Catalanes D66

Wally's Price: $29

The 2016 Côtes Catalanes D66 is a bonafide blockbuster from winemaker Richard Case that does everything right. Loaded with notions of ripe blackberry and currant fruits, chocolate, ground pepper, licorice, and leafy herbs, this puppy hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth yet stays nicely balanced and light on its feet. Rich, opulent, and decadent are the buzzwords here, and it should keep for 7-8 years. The blend is 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah aged 12 months in barrel. - Jeb Dunnuck

Inky hued in the glass, it offers up remarkable aromas of acacia blossoms, blueberries, black currants, mocha and cedar.

2018 Daou Bodyguard

Wally's Price: $40

In comparison to some of the brand’s other offerings, this is an affordable way to check in on the Daou experience. Savory aromas of coffee bean meet with lush purple fruits on the nose. The palate is rounded in texture, with rich flavors of dark berry, cappuccino, milk chocolate and caramel.

2019 Margerum Cinsault

Wally's Price: $20

A variety you don't see often on its own (although it's becoming more common), the 2019 Cinsault Margerum Estate Vineyard offers a Grenache-like bouquet of raspberries, black cherries, peppery herbs, and sappy flowers. Medium-bodied, elegant, and seamless on the palate, it shines for its balance, purity of fruit, and sheer drinkability.

Wally’s Supports The Code Red Foundation and Million Dollar Wine

June 9, 2021

The 2021 School year will be in full swing come the fall, and with everything else we have going on, our kids' safety is still our first priority!

Prior to Covid, our kids were in a mental health crisis. Seventy-four percent of American families' greatest source of stress was school shootings (Time Magazine). Now, over a year later, one in four adults have contemplated suicide and our schools are no safer than they were pre-covid. This is where we draw the line.

No politics. No agenda. Just us; Moms and Dads, Teachers and Students, doing our best to keep our kids healthy and safe.

The Code Red Foundation, initially created in response to the deadliest high school shooting in history at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, is a nonprofit organization that has a heart for protecting our kids. Here at Code Red, we’ve recognized the exponential threats our kids are facing today and we are asking our communities for help.

How do we do this? Resources. It's about training, awareness, conversations and providing the lifesaving technologies and tools that we need as families and teachers to keep our kids safe NOW. Whether they're struggling with mental health issues, facing a threat on campus, or dealing with something somewhere in between, we need to know how to create the safe environment our kids deserve.

There isn't a handbook for protecting our kids, but together- as parents, educators, mentors and leaders, we can take responsibility by taking action right now. They're counting on us - and we're counting on you!!


Let's Draw the Line, with Wine!

In addition to 100% of Million Dollar Wine Club sales going to the Code Red: Youth of the Nation 501(c)3 initiativesabove, you can take action by spreading the word so we can collectively #drawthelinewithwine! Snap a pic while enjoying one of our wines and tag @coderedfoundation so we can thank you for your support and enter you into a drawing for a boutique, limited edition double magnum bottle of beautifully crafted red wine that was made to make a difference.


Great wine. Even better cause.

Extra special thanks to the Million Dollar Wine Club - whose name is inspired by founders Shuling and Brad's vision to raise one million dollars to support the great work being done through selected nonprofit organizations. Shuling and Brad have been integral to the launch of the Code Red Foundation and we could not be more grateful for the work that they have done and continue to do for families across America and around the world!

Join us this Thursday, June 3rd at 5:00PM when Wally’s President, Christian Navarro, will be catching up with Michter’s Distillery President, Joseph J. Magliocco, for a virtual tasting on Wally’s Instagram Live! Originally founded in 1753 by a Swiss Mennonite farmer in Pennsylvania, Micther’s distillery produced some of the earliest local American whiskies around. In the 1990s, Joseph J. Magliocco and his consultant and mentor Richard "Dick" Newman teamed up to resurrect Michter’s, and the distillery now boasts three locations in Kentucky: a 78,000 square foot distillery in the Shively section of Louisville, the architecturally significant Fort Nelson Building on Louisville's Museum Row and 145 acres of farm land in Springfield. The tasting will feature Michters US1 Bourbon Whiskey, Michters US1 Sour Mash Whiskey, and Michters US1 Rye Whiskey.

Michters US1 Bourbon Whiskey

Wally's Price: $50

Michter’s US1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon is made from a carefully selected mashbill that features the highest quality American corn. It is then matured to the peak of perfection. Truly “small batch” each batch of our US1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon is batched in a holding tank sized to fit a maximum of twenty full barrels, leaving no margin for “blending out” imperfection and thus necessitating excellence from every barrel. Reflecting the spirit of the Bluegrass State, Michter’s US1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon is nuanced, mellow and earthy. Michter’s US1 Kentucky Straight Bourbon is also available with personalized Fort Nelson Select labeling at Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery. - Producer Notes

Mar 27, 2021 6:18:03 AM


Michters US1 Sour Mash Whiskey

Wally's Price: $50

During the 1970s and 1980s, Michter’s Original Sour Mash Whiskey was the distillery’s single most popular product. While the “Sour Mash” moniker originated from the whiskey production process of the same name – whereby some previously fermented mash is used as the starter for the new mash to be fermented, much like making sourdough bread – Michter’s Original Sour Mash earned distinction for its unique taste. With its unique grain selection, it cannot be categorized as a rye or a bourbon. After disappearing from the market in 1989, Michter’s Original Sour Mash Whiskey made a triumphant return in 2012 with its introduction into the US1 line. Staying true to the profile and palate of its predecessor, Michter’s US1 Sour Mash has quickly become a favorite of whiskey enthusiasts. - Producer Notes

Mar 27, 2021 6:18:03 AM


Michters US1 Rye Whiskey

Wally's Price: $50

Renowned for rye – America’s oldest whiskey variety – since the earliest days of our history, we take the production of Michter’s US1 Kentucky Straight Rye extremely seriously. Our Michter’s US1 Kentucky Straight Rye is made from select American rye grain that is sheared to maximize the extraction of flavor from the grain. Ideal neat or in cocktails, every bottle comes from a single barrel – a unique attribute reflecting our extraordinary commitment to offering Kentucky Straight Rye whiskey of the absolute highest quality at every level of the Michter’s range. Michter’s US1 Kentucky Straight Rye is also available with personalized Fort Nelson Select labeling at Michter’s Fort Nelson Distillery. - Producer Notes
