    Buying Wine in Aruba

    Does anybody buy wine from a distributor rather than the old standbys (Lings, Superfood) etc.?

    The selection tends to be pretty limited at the grocery stores but we have seen some pretty fantastic wines at restaurants. We always ask where the owners are getting their stock from... and everyone has been great in letting us know.

    Just wondering if anyone has gone the distributor route and what the parameters are (have to buy a case, pricing, limitations, discounts etc.)

    By the way... I splurged and bought a Nickel & Nickel CC Ranch Cab 2011 before Christmas. I opened it on Friday night with some fantastic filets to pair with it. Oh my... it was crazy good!!!!

    Right?!? Those New Zealanders know what they're doing... In Sauvignon Blancs anyway. 2008 Dog Point Bin 94 almost had me suicidal when the case emptied.

    Okay... Let's open a wine store!
