Cheap Date Night Wines

We think being able to bring your own bottle of wine into a restaurant makes a lot of sense.

The not-so-secret truth about the restaurant business is that most of its profits come from the overpricing on wine, but lucky for us the BYOB trend is catching on. Our Wine Specialist will sample her favorite best kept secret bargain wines and help you plan the perfect cheap date night! Space is limited! Please RSVP to andrea.beckham@wholefoods.com.
