This gem from Ghost Pines is a beautiful blend of ripe Napa and Sonoma County cabernet grapes. Full-flavored and fearfully structured, this cab screams to be paired with grilled vegetables and spicy meats. For the price, it would be silly to pass up.
The Veteran Beer Company are a bunch of heroes. Other than their legal department, every single person employed at the Veteran Beer Company has served our country. Pretty cool, huh? Besides providing post-service careers to many veterans, they also craft great tasting beer. Next time you stop by Binny’s, support our veterans and pick up a six pack.
All we need on a hot summer day is chilled wine in our glass – like this savory and crisp sauvignon blanc from Chateau Ste Michelle. Whether you lay poolside, check out the local town’s parade, or hit up a concert in the park – pack a bottle of this sauv blanc in your bag. You’ll thank us later.
Bourbon. No other spirit expresses America more than bourbon. By purchasing this special package from Jim Beam, you also support Operation Homefront which provides recovery assistance to wounded warriors and relief to military families.
If you’re a fan of Dom Perignon, then you’ll love this limited edition bubbly. Moet Chandon is the parent of both Dom Perignon and Domaine Chandon, so you know it’s good. The nautical packaging captures the spirit of summer and pairs well with a variety of foods. Get your hands on a bottle or two soon as it will only be available in the summer months.
Earlier this year, we ventured to Eastern Iowa to pick our latest batch of Handpicked single barrels. These Handpicked bourbons from Cedar Ridge are great to share so if you plan on hosting people or venturing up to a crowded lakehouse, take a bottle or two.

Celebrate America’s proudest day and commemorate Wrigley’s 100th Anniversary!
