Great Values in St. Louis Wines: Veritas Gateway to Food and Wine

Posted By on Thu, Mar 11, 2010 at 3:30 PM

Given Gut Check's never-ending quest for obsession with great wine values, we figured it'd be a good idea to check in from time to time with local merchants. They pick three wines they consider to be excellent values, and Gut Check buys and tries one of them. Price is important, but value is really what we're all after.

Up to bat this time is David Stitt who, along with his wife Stephanie, owns Veritas Gateway to Food and Wine (1722 Clarkson Road, Chesterfield; 636-530-9505). Veritas is home to one of the most interesting and eclectic wine selections in St. Louis. It's a treat to talk with David Stitt and explore the offerings Veritas has tucked away in its racks.

Value Pick: 2008 Grayson Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon California ($9)

California cabernet sauvignon needs no introduction, but Stitt says this one is a real bargain because Grayson is taking advantage of the tough times in the California wine business to source topnotch fruit at attractive prices. Grayson, he adds, aims for "a more refined style that emphasizes bright fruit and not a lot of oak." If you're looking for something to keep on hand for a quick glass or two after work, or to complement a surprising range of foods, Stitt says this one is well worth trying.
