Funny about what is on the back of the labels of the domestic wine I have bought from them. My bottles DON’T say “Vinted and Bottled by Montesquieu Winery.” My bottles say “Vinted and Bottled by Creighton” or “Vinted and Bottled by (you fill in the winery they want you to believe it is from).”

Why is it you think they decided to make this change? Perhaps because their legal dept decided it was not lawful? The bottles they sold me were from years ago before they got a litany of complaints perhaps? I still have samples of all the bottles they sold me. I still have all the receipts. I have close up photos of a lineup of their bottles of domestic wine, which share the same lettering, layout, and scripting. Even the capsules are the same for a number of different wines. And each of these wines supposedly is from some winery that they claimed on their bottle was NOT from Montesquieu. What does this tell you?

Well I am glad they made that change at least. It doesn’t help me. It doesn’t make my bottles of Creighton suddenly become not bad anymore. And it’s not as if I didn’t store these bottles perfectly. They have been in my cellar the whole time, at a constant temperature of 57.5 F and a humidity of 52%. I bought them because the broker at Montesquieu promised they were of excellent quality and that they would cellar up to 2015. I paid good money for a product that they absolutely knew I planned to lay down for years. I trusted them. That is on me. I should have known better. But at least I can prevent some other people from making the same mistakes that I made.

We would really like to hear what you have to say
