Blast from the fairly recent past - 2008 Benchmark pricing

#1 Post by Karl K » May 10th, 2020, 5:15 pm

Hello all,

I have appreciated posts from others about wine prices and catalogs from decades ago, so I have decided to share some highlights from a price guide from Benchmark, June 24, 2008.

I found some printed out sheets in my basement. Note it was about 16 pages long, just sharing highlights here.

Enjoy!

My yahoo! account still has Premier Cru email offers in it, fun to randomly go back and look at pricing. I was small time, no blue chips, but some pricing obviously ended up too good to be true, but if you were a sub-$100 shopper there were some killer prices before the bottom fell out.
