Weekly News from BHI's Maritime Market - 11/20

Posted on Thursday, November 20, 2014

Your weekly news from the good folks at the  Martime Market. If you haven't signed up for their news-filled email blasts,  you can do so here .  

The folks on our wine email list have seen some wonderful deals recently. In addition to the selections, the Market is offering to store any wines purchased until you return to the island (at no additional cost). You can purchase as little as one bottle at a time - now imagine returning to the island for Thanksgiving, New Year's or Easter to a great stash of wines already paid for and waiting for your enjoyment. This week we're featuring a fabulous Belle Glos Pinot Noir that scored an impressive 92 points from Wine Spectator. Pinot Noir makes the perfect pairing for your Thanksgiving, but is versatile enough to go with just about anything. This wine normally sells for $49.99, but we have it on sale for only $39.99/btl. Six-pack cases are also available - and we'll extend our 10% case discount to these as well. If you're on the island already, drop by - we have it in stock. If you're off island, you can order these on-line with your credit card at http://www.maritimetogo.com and we'll hold them until you return. To join our Wine mailing list, go to http://www.maritimemarketbhi.com and follow the links. Some of our deals sell out very quickly - like the recent 96 point (Robert Parker) 40th Anniversary Caymus Cab.
