Some of the people at Bevmo are idiots....
So gescom told me about the Domaine Chandon Pinot the other day, and his taste in wines is impeccable, so I swung by there to grab a couple of bottles yesterday. I bought the last 2 on the shelf.
We had also talked about a Pinot Meunier they bottle, so I asked the kid if they had it. He wasn't sure so he found me their "Wine Buyer". The guy sat there for 30 minutes arguing with me about the fact that they use that grape to make sparkling wines, they don't bottle it on its own. I keep explaining that I've been on their website, that its won awards, and I've been able to find it on the net, yet he still keeps arguing with me that it DOESN'T exist.
Hey dumbass, its right HERE!
And I can buy it online RIGHT HERE!
WTF do people do that?

I bought 3 bottles of that Domaine Chandon Tuesday.
I expect to have only one by tomorrow morning.

Find out how much they pay the guy and you'll find your answer.

Great call, ges and dudes. The Chandon Pinots Noir and Munier ROCK. Also, their winery is a great one to visit.
Don't worry about that tool, Birdman. He went home and looked it up and most likely felt like a complete dip****--and you look pretty damn savvy.
*edit* HOLY ****!!! Just went to their website and they've got FREE SHIPPING THIS MONTH!!!!! Even to Hawaii! I can't get their still wines out here, so I'm ALL over this! GREAT timing for this thread, Birdman.

That's why you shouldn't buy wines from BevMo.

1) 23 Lbs. Turkey - $23.00
2) 2 Bottles of Domaine Chandon Pinot Noir - $50.00
3) Watching your brother dig it up on the internet after dinner and ordering a case of each.....priceless!!!

This may sound crazy but the Wine Ive bought from Bevmo never tastes as good as the Wine I get at the Wine Club or High Times.

But the wine selection is not as good as that of a good wine merchant.
