Spanish wines in Barcelona
I'm in Barcelona for the next three days, what are some wines I should be on the lookout for that are not readily available in the US? Are there any shops I should check out while here?

Excellent clearance wines nearly being given away
My local grocery store (Woodman's, Madison WI.) has a large, mostly excellent wine selection (YUGE!).
Well, every day they stock a shopping cart in the front by the door with heavily discounted, discontinued wines. Today I noticed a red blend: "2011 Murrieta's Well The Spur", which is 31% Petite Sirah, 29% Petite Verdot, 27% Cabernet Sauv, 8% Malbec, and 5% Cab Franc.
This was on sale – several bottles – for $4.99 a bottle. Wow, I am blown away at how good this is, and I am strictly a varietal purist! I usually dislike red blends, but this is very, very good.
1) Has anyone tried this wine?
2) Does your local store practically give away clearance wines like this, too?

Total wine newbie looking for recommendations for my upcoming wedding!
I really don't know much about wine beyond the basics so would love some help with the recommendations.
There will be about 200 people and about half the wedding would never know the difference, regardless of what was served, about 1/4 of the wedding won't drink wine, and about 1/4 of the wedding drinks veuve like it's water and will judge us no matter what we serve… but they're not paying, so looking for something that is tasty and on the lower scale for price.
We are going to have live action stations for food with tapas style portions and are serving the following:
Passed bruschetta, hummus and pita chips, and a charcuterie board for cocktail hour
Spinach and quinoa salad with a warm bacon vinaigrette
Ancho chili beef with a warm blue cheese polenta (sounds weird but is amazing)
Shrimp and grits with bacon
Herb roasted chicken with a polenta cake
Chicken, potatoe, and veggie hash
I'm thinking we should have a red, a white, and maybe a sparkling wine?
We are doing a champagne toast but I figure that should probably be separate from what we're serving. Please let me know if there is any additional information I can provide!!
Thank you so much in advance for any recommendations I would truly appreciate it!!

Has anyone ever shipped a case of wine cross country?
I work in the industry and my family lives across the country. I’d like to ship a case of our wine without spending more on shipping than I paid for the case…and have it arrive without damage. Any suggestions?
EDIT: shipping from California to Maine. I see that it is illegal to ship wine from consumer to consumer?

Laube versus Suckling — their scores differ, but what does that mean for us?
