Wines Til Sold Out: Our Favorite (and Cheapest) Way to Buy Wine

Published by Andy at 2:35 pm under Insane Deals

Here’s our gift to you this holiday season. I first discovered (WTSO) last year in a small advertisement in the back of an issue of New York Magazine. I decided to go online and see what it was all about. Since then, we’ve purchased no less than 100 bottles of wine through this site at unbelievable prices (and with free shipping). The wines WTSO sells run the gamut from $5.99 bottles of Prosecco to the most expensive Bordeaux and Burgandy out there. I bought a bottle of 1995 Château Latour in a WTSO marathon (will explain below what a ‘marathon’ is) for $250, which now sells for $1,100 a bottle at Sherry-Lehmann in NYC. On the opposite end, Jill ordered us 4 bottles of Cava just last week at $9.99 a bottle. Here’s how it works: WTSO sells one type of wine per day until it is sold out or until 11:59pm eastern standard time, when it is replaced. If that bottle sells out early, WTSO will then add another wine (but no more than 3 wines per day). WTSO ships to 32 states. Click here to see if they ship to you. When you sign up (free) you get an email each morning with the wine of the day, including the description of the wine, available ratings and price, and a comparison of the lowest price on the web for the same bottle. If it’s nothing of interest to you, simply delete the email and wait for the next one. If an offering piques your interest, I suggest jumping on it, since the best deals tend to sell out quite quickly. The 40 or so people I have told about the site are mostly WTSO regulars now and the great deals are selling out faster as the customer base grows. Find out some insane deals we’ve taken advantage of and what a WTSO marathon is, after the jump…

I was looking back at some of my old receipts from WTSO this morning, and these stuck out as ridic deals:

3 bottles of Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova 2000 for $33.99/bottle — currently retails for anywhere b/t $50-80. Oh yeah, and the 2001 vintage was Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year for 2006.

3 bottles of Le Vieux Donjon Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2004 for $29.99/bottle – currently retails for $45.99/bottle at Sherry-Lehmann

6 bottles of Caliterra Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2005 for $7.99/bottle – currently retails for anywhere b/t $11-13. This is a great Chilean value wine.

JUST TODAY WE PURCHASED 2 BOTTLES OF DOMAINE HUMBERT FRERES GEVREY-CHEVERTIN 2005 BURGANDY FOR $39.99/bottle — currently retails for anywhere b/t $55-75.

Over the past week, WTSO has been offering one of our favorite wine producers, Mollydooker, at great price-points.

Also, be sure on the lookout for WTSO Marathons — days when WTSO sells a variety of wines (24-80 different wines, depending on the type of marathon) from midnight to midnight. You receive an email notice of the marathon about a week before it runs with a short description of the products being featured. You also receive an email at the start of the marathon.

    femaleHey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same outcome.

    He hands them to Ferry: three DATs, and three North County homes that showcase Universal Design for aging in place–four of which were
    remodel mortgageed by female designers. During such incidences you sure do not want to live there for a while.
    Other components might involve stoneware pots, glazed earthenware and glass jars.

    I rarely leave comments, but i did a few searching and wound up here WINED
    & DINED Wines Til Sold Out: Our Favorite (and Cheapest)
    Way to Buy Wine. And I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don’t mind.
    Is it simply me or does it look like a few of the responses come across as if they
    are coming from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online
    sites, I’d like to follow anything new you have to post.
    Would you make a list of every one of your public pages
    like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    I’m really impressed along with your writing skills and also with the format in your blog.

    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way stay up the excellent high quality writing, it
    is uncommon to look a nice blog like this one nowadays..

    That is why you should focus on having social media success in your business.
    I did that and soon after I received a quick and simple phone call with my question answered, no waiting around
    on hold or answering a long list of questions.
    Groupon is just the latest example of a business leveraging the power of social networking to
    insane levels of commercial success. Social
    media success is something that any small business owner can obtain. For those who don’t,
    don’t fret, I will walk you through the reasons you want to take
    stock of how you’ve been spending your time. Twitter offers a more direct approach to getting
    a message across to your followers or customers. If done
    right, social media can be a powerful tool for
    advertising. Or it could be a hunger strike by a
    member of the opposition to protest a government decision in the house.
    Read the feedback you get and evaluate your work one
    last time, is there anything you can do to improve it and then stop, put
    down your pen close your laptop breathe. How many times have you
    dined at a great new restaurant, and immediately recommended it to friends.
