Our Last Quarterly Sale of the year begins Friday November 28th and runs through Sunday December 7th
See newsletter page for details.

Our main focus at The Wine Cask is to deliver value. We believe that value in wine is not defined by the lowest price; rather it’s where quality and reasonable price coincide.

We were one of the first stores to publish a monthly newsletter that included great-value ‘Wines of the Month,’ and we still do it. During the forty years we have been serving our customers in Somerville and Cambridge the wine world has grown immensely, and we have grown with it. The diversity of wine is its greatest virtue and we seek it all over the world.

We travel the world visiting wine regions and attending trade shows whenever possible. We have attended the annual Loire Valley trade show in Angers, Vin Expo in Bordeaux, and Vini Sud in Montpelier multiple times. We annually attend Vin Italy. We have traversed Spain numerous times. In addition, staff members have visited Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, South Africa, Australia, Germany, Austria, and Hungary. These experiences have taught us a great deal about wine and food and how they can best be matched.

Our store has around two thousand different wines to choose from, and almost all of them have been tasted by a staff member. If you don’t see what you’re looking for we are more than happy to special order a single bottle for you.

Wines of the Month

2012 Pinot Blanc (Trimbach)
Sale Price $9.99 – $107.89 case of twelve

The best price in years for a Wine Cask classic. Trimbach’s Pinot Blanc is food-friendly and full of rich, dry flavor.

2012 Malbec (Septima)
Sale Price $7.99 – $86.29 case of twelve

Septima packs a lot of flavor for a modest price. Dark fruit, full body, and hints of cocoa are typical of Argentine Malbec.

2013 Montepulciano d’Abruzzo (Caldora)
Sale Price $8.99 – $97.09 case of twelve

Montepulciano d’Abruzzo is a favorite go-to red for spicy red sauce and sausages. The 2013 Caldora does not disappoint.

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon/Carmenere (Cono Sur)
Sale Price $8.99 – $97.09
case of twelve

This has long been our favorite from Cono Sur. The Cab/Carm blend is made from organic grapes and the 2013 is a beautifully balanced, fruity, spicy Chilean red.
