Wines featured on today’s show:

  • Foxhorn Chardonnay  (~$8)
  • 2008 Bohemian Highway Chardonnay  (~$10)
  • 2008 Lindeman’s Bin 65 Chardonnay  (~$13)

The Som’s jive on the 1.5:

As much as I appreciate Optimus Prime sharing his opinion of our wines, there were no “1.75” size wines presented on the program.  Perhaps things look larger under that helmet.  If that’s the case, I’ll take 3.

As we alluded to on the show, Bovee is correct;  there are many wineries that make 750 mls and put the same wine in the 1.5 liters size.   So don’t feel like you are getting a lesser wine when purchasing the larger format bottle.  It’s the same juice and might even be a better value when you consider the volume/price ratio.  These are good wines for events that call for more that a couple of bottles to be poured.  Weddings, graduation parties, family reunions, or funerals.  There are a handful I would strongly recommend for making Sangria with as well.

For me personally, I would avoid using them for dinner parties.  Nothing really against the wines themselves, mostly because of the stigma attached.  There are tons of very good 750ml for under $10 that you can use for such events and the neighbors will not talk behind you back.
