had a similar experience with one of TJ's Prosecco (DOCG, nonetheless) offerings....a real pity, as when I was just starting out (back when the crust of the earth was cooling) Trader Joe's was a great place to stop in (Pasadena)and find all kinds of groovy wines from the Loire, from Germany, Spain and old California.

no more, now it's a repository for cynical wine merchants


Hey Alfonso, The pity is they capitalized on the trust of the people, and then screwed them. Many fine product at the TJs still, alas, wine is not among them. Happy New Year to you!

My Photo
I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
