At Personal Wine Cellar, we know you love great wines and great prices. So here is something special, just for you: through the end of 4th of July weekend (7/7/19), we’re offering you 15% off your purchase of Apothic Wines! Check out Facebook for the details on this offer.
Personal Wine Cellar carries several Apothic Wines, including Apothic Dark and their flagship wine, Apothic Red.
Apothic Dark Red Blend Wine seamlessly integrates dark jammy fruit flavors, especially blueberry and blackberry, with enticing notes of coffee and dark chocolate for a rich and smooth mouthfeel and layers of texture. High quality grapes yield a great balance of acidity and sugar on the palate. For more information on this wine, click here.
Apothic Red Wine was inspired by the “Apothem”, a mysterious place. A masterful blend of rich Zinfandel, smooth Merlot, flavorful Syrah and bold Cabernet Sauvignon creates layers of dark fruit complemented by hints of vanilla and mocha. For more information on this wine, click here.
Have you ever wondered what Apothic even means?
I know I have. It brings to mind something related to an apothecary– a person who prepared and sold medicines back in the days of yore. Perhaps Apothic could be a medicinal wine, created in in a secret medieval wine laboratory. Maybe it healed the sick, fortified the weak, and tasted great to boot.
A quick Google search on that term doesn’t turn up anything related to winemaking at all. Apotheca appears to be Greek in origin, and simply means “storehouse.” For all we know, an apotheca could have been full of barley. Definitely not as exciting as a secret medieval wine laboratory.
Apothic Wines’ website claims that they take their name from something closer to where my imagination took me: the name is derived from the word apotheca, a secret, 13th Century place where wine was blended and stored.
Is this a bunch of baloney? Probably. Are the wines still delicious? Definitely.
Stop by Personal Wine Cellar and take advantage of this great deal while it lasts (that’s 15% off Apothic Wines from now through 7/7/19). And don’t forget we deliver, too!
