Skytop top 5 wine & spirits

Thank you for checking out our top 5 wines & spirits for the fall and winter season. One of the many perks of our job is we get to taste, learn, and appreciate all the products we sell in our store. We spend countless hours looking for those hidden gems and outstanding products to share with all of you. What could be better than passing all this knowledge and “hard work” onto our customers and formally rank our 5 favorite wines and spirits for the upcoming colder months.

And just so you don’t think we just pulled these names out of a hat, here is how we scored our products…

Value – Can’t pick all $100 bottles of wine. Does the bottle we pick reflect the price tag it comes with or is it even better? Good way to give all of our products an even playing field

Quality – Goes without saying overall quality of the product, taste, care put into making a perfect wine or spirit

Bottle – Sounds silly put a big part of the “experience” of our favorite beverage is the bottle it comes in. The label, weight & shape of the bottle, overall quality of the package.

Our panel consists of the owner, store manager, main inventory manager, and occasionally customers wondering what we’re doing sampling 30 different bottles of wine!

Line 39 Pinot Noir

Line 39 Pinot Noir – A “no brainer” to make our top 5 for the fall & winter season. Line 39 pinot noir has been one of our best-selling new products since it arrived last year. Rich berries & vanilla paired with a smooth and delicate wine. Amazing price at only $9.99.

The Stag Cabernet Sauvignon

The Stag Cabernet Sauvignon – Produced by the world-renowned Stags Leap Winery of Napa Valley. This full-bodied red is matured in American Oak to add aromas of chocolate and rich cedar. A popular wine as soon as it hit the shelves. Highly rated nationally and by our staff.

Masi Campofiorin

Masi Campofiorin – An Italian red that will blow you away. Full body, smooth as velvet, but not overpowering and can pair with almost any food. A wine made in the Amarone style but without the high price. A long time staff and customer favorite.

Carta vieja sauvignon Blanc

Carta Vieja Sauvignon Blanc – A staff favorite Carta Vieja Sauvignon Blanc is complex, crisp with some minerality but not overpowering with citrus on the finish. From Chile it has everything you would want in your traditional dry white but with a little twist. Outstanding price and a crowd pleaser.

Time Waits for No One Monastrell

Time Waits for No One Red Blend - You shouldn’t “wait” to try this wine. Our #1 ranked wine is 100% Monastrell from southeastern Spain. Rustic, with baked fruits and spices. A fine wine without the fine wine price. Truly a hidden gem and must try for yourself.

Carolans Irish Cream

Carolons Irish Cream – When we think winter we think of a smooth and rich Irish cream. Direct from Ireland, Carolons is made with real Irish whiskey, fresh cream, and a touch of honey. Half the price of Baileys and a higher quality product. An easy decision and in our top 5 favorite products for the season.

Don Q Silver Rum

Don Q Silver Rum – High quality product for a great low price. Absolutely delicious all-natural rum from Puerto Rico. Nationally ranked higher than other name brands and a staff favorite.

Espolon Silver tequila

Espolon Tequila – Espolon blanco tequila has been a top seller ever since it was put on the shelf. Made with 100% blue weber agave this tequila has rich floral notes and smooth finish. Great price point and a bottle everyone will notice.

Roku Gin

Roku Gin – Normally you don’t think Gin in the winter months but this product couldn’t be kept off our list. Japanese hand-crafted gin. Roku in Japanese means “six” to describe all the botanicals made in this particular gin. Amazing price and packaging. Easily one of our favorite products and a must try.

Reyka Vodka

Reyka Vodka – A masterpiece from Iceland. Crisp, clean & full. Everything you would hope a vodka could be. Once you try it, you’ll never want another vodka. A special product and our top rated vodka.
