New Wine Sampler Packs To-Go!

Ray’s is ushering in the changing season with an exciting line up of New Wine Sampler Packs, available to order now on Toast! Skip browsing at the wine shop or grocery store and opt for these special sampler packs featuring bottles hand-selected by Ray’s Wine Director Chip Croteau.

Chip dug deep into our wine cellar and pulled out some stunning bottles! He’s created a rare chance to try three (or four) decades of Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon. If you’re in the mood for Pinot Noir, enjoy a three-year vertical of three different bottlings from Oregon’s legendary cult winery, Antica Terra. Or opt for our Northwest Fall Sampler Pack to enjoy local wines perfect for sipping in the soon-to-come cooler weather. Cheers!
