Whole Foods - Downtown Austin

Congrats to Heather GK. in Houston for guessing the store yesterday that is featuring Handley Cellars "Dry Creek" Sauvignon Blanc - she was quick to comment on Facebook. All the Handley Cellar's wines are lovely and a fantastic value as well. Just a few medals and reviews they've received over the past year...Cheers - Ali
