CONCORD, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 26, 2014) - Ultimate neighborhood specialty beverage retailer BevMo! is thrilled to announce that today marks the beginning of the famous 5 Cent Wine Sale, where ClubBev! members can buy one bottle of wine and get the second for only five cents. BevMo!'s signature 5 Cent Wine Sale is available on select wines at all California, Arizona and Washington* store locations starting today, and you can sign up for your free ClubBev! membership at your local store. To help kick off this year's spring sale, BevMo!'s resident Cellar Master Wilfred Wong has created his Top 10 Picks to get you started, along with suggested food items that complement each wine.
"The 5 Cent Wine Sale presents a great opportunity for customers to stock up on their favorite wines or be adventurous and try something new without breaking the bank," said Wilfred Wong, BevMo!'s official Cellar Master. "Whether you want to grab several bottles of your favorite Chardonnay ahead of summer party season or try that new Merlot you've been eyeing, BevMo! is the place to be this spring."
Customers can visit their local BevMo! for weekly 5 Cent Wine Sale tastings on Fridays from 4 - 7 p.m. and on Saturdays from 2 - 5 p.m. Plus, lucky Bay Area residents will also have the opportunity to attend an in-store tasting in Walnut Creek hosted by the cellar master himself, where guests will be able to sip Wilfred's Top 10 Picks, indulge in fine cheese pairings, shop the 5 Cent Wine Sale and mingle with Wilfred and other local BevMo! experts. The tasting will take place on Wednesday, March 5 from 5:30 - 7 p.m. at 2940 N. Main Street.
