Long before COVID, and the exponential growth of e-commerce over in-store browsing, we had a small community of New Yorkers who would occasionally come to Chambers Street Wines with a cutout section of the NY Times, often highlighted, clearly cherished. This piece of newspaper would invariably be the most recent "20 under $20" article from NY Times wine writer, Eric Asimov. Through online research or old-fashioned phone calls, this group of customers would determine that Chambers Street Wines had several of Asimov's picks on the shelf, and would come in to put together a mixed bag or case. Though we've never hit 20 for 20, we often do have several of the wines from the "20 under $20" in stock. In the case of the most recent article, "20 under $20: Finding Bargains Amid Inflation" we noticed that 6 of the wines mentioned were on our shelves, a sign that great minds do indeed drink alike! Though we could of course make some phone calls and stock up on everything that was listed, we figured we'd just highlight the wines that we already had in stock because of their incredible price to quality ratio.
We're thrilled that Mr. Asimov enjoyed the wines he found at Chambers Street and we remind you that all year round CSW is one of the country's great sources of fine wines under $20, most of them from organic or Biodynamic farming!

The Jasci Trebbiano is a fine example of what a conscientious producer can do with Trebbiano d'Abruzzo. In some ways this is an old fashioned white - there is no reliance on skin contact to cover up, or artificial aromas and flavors from selected yeast. Instead this is refreshing and bright, with ripe pear and hay and stony ground bringing complexity. An easy food match, and a very nice wine. Jamie Wolff
The Lombardo Gavi is a staple at Chambers. The 2020 has bright fruit of apricot and lemon, zesty minerality, and a medium mouthfeel. Even though there is a bit of weight on the palate, the wine also shows a touch of effervescence. A great bottle for anyone looking for a wine with ripe yellow fruits and a dynamic texture.
This is the twelfth vintage of the Hubert family's "Blanc Bonhomme"which seems to get better every year. The vines are now 17 years old, certified organic and Biodynamic. The grapes are hand-harvested in the early morning, pressed gently, fermented with native yeasts and the wine is aged partly in new oak, mostly in cement vats. Only about 650 cases are made. In 2020, Le Blanc is 45% Sauvignon Blanc, 45% Semillon, and 10% Colombard, and shows elegant pear, lemon, herbal and dried flower aromas, with pear, citrus and chalky mineral flavors on the palate. At 12.5% alcohol, the 2021 is lighter and brighter than the previous 3 vintages and it really shows the terroir with crisp acidity, lovely white fruit, a hint of pineapple and oak and stony flavors in the finish. Really a lovely, balanced and food-friendly wine - serve with anything from oysters to grilled fish to roast chicken.
Cava Bertha is a small estate tucked away in the Sant Sadurni area, surrounded mostly by the vineyards of the acclaimed Recaredo winery. Certified organic, this Brut Nature Reserva Cava is made from the Macabeu grape. Pristine and clean, but with a lovely mid-palate thanks to the natural weight and expressiveness of Macabeu. Highly recommended!
This delightful estate uses one-third Syrah, one-third Grenache and one-third Cinsault in their Corbières Rouge, grown on limestone/clay soils in the foothills of Mont Alaric, certified organic since 2007. The wine shows aromas of blackberries, ripe plums, and tiny wild blueberries, as well as notes of balsam wood. Like all the best Languedoc offerings, there's a wild edge here with a bit of funk that is tempered by juicy sleekness. Its excellent balance and wealth of ripe tannins make it a natural at the table - serve with a stew or grilled meats, a coq au vin with farm chicken or guinea hen, and full-flavored cow cheeses.
From Goumenissa in central Macedonia, the ancient capital of Macedon and birthplace of Alexander the Great. One of the first Greek wineries to convert to organic viticulture in the 90s, Domaine Tatsis can easily be seen as traditionalist in nature but they constantly experiment, doing long macerations of their native white varieties and long élevage for roses. They release their appellation Goumenissas with significant bottle aging for a true representation of the wine as it should be enjoyed. A blend of 80%Xinomavro and 20% Negoska, the nose is redolent of tomato leaf, red cherries, hazelnuts with a touch of black pepper. Intense acidity and structure from the Xinomavro paired with the higher alcohol yet soft tannins from the Negoska dances on the tongue like a gymnast flipping through the air. For lovers of Nebbiolo & Tuscan Sangiovese. Pair with local dishes like pork with leeks & mushrooms as well as wild boar with chestnuts and olives.GH
