Let me preface this review by saying I’m the farthest thing from an experienced wine connoisseur. While I do enjoy a glass of wine pretty regularly, I’m a strict cheap Pinot Grigio kind of girl. I didn’t think that mattered much what the brand was, or that I liked much else.
But then I tasted some wines at Style School last weekend and I was interested to listen to the rep from Cameron Hughes explaining how they do things. They are not a vineyard with their own brand of wine. Basically they are re-purposing expensive wines from other vineyards that are the result of overproduction of wine and not enough sales. Cameron Hughes takes that wine, relabels it and sells a “lot” of it until it runs out. Each “lot” is different and when that lot is out, it’s out. But the deal is, you may be getting what was originally $100 but with a new label, it’s costing you $20.
Love it. My favorite wine of the day was the Moscato, which is a sweet bubbly wine. It’s the type of wine I’d never think I would like but I could not get enough of it! In fact, I’ve already ordered several bottles to be shipped to my parents in Florida. (Boohoo, no shipping to PA.)
So yeah, depending on your state, you may not be able to get Cameron Hughes wine. But most of the states are luckier than us PA folks so check to see what liquor laws exist in your state (just visit the site and see if your state is an option in the drop down delivery field). I didn’t pay shipping to Florida, used the 10% off coupon below and I got three bottles of Moscato shipped to my parents house for $37. Awesome.

Also for those of you who live in states that allow it, you can find Cameron Hughes wine at your local Costco and Sam’s Club.
Here’s a video from Style School where the lovely Samantha explains things a little better than I can:
