Monte Bello now $299. I used to enjoy buying that wine. No longer.
I toured the winery in Santa Cruz in 2015. Recall the tour manager saying warmly that the owner would limit price increases year-over-year so they'd be minimal. Well, you can call that line a load of crap, given the price increases in the last few years. I don't buy Monte Bello futures any more, or Monte Bello.
I didn't think the prices were up that high in terms of futures, but the retail price really has shot up. The exchange rate isn't helping our cause at the KGBO either.
