An online wine resource that every value seeking drinker of “the other purple drank” is Wine.Woot.com. If you are already familiar with the woot.com concept, this is a site by the same fellows that features products centered around wine. According to their section entitled What is Wine.Woot?, “every weekday, wine.woot.com will uncork a sweet new wine deal. (Or a wine-related one, be it wine accessories or fine finger-food fixins.)” Usually, these deals include 2 or 3 bottles of vey highly rated wine at a large discount.
If you so desire, check it every week day for a new deal. The major conflict comes from certain state governments not allowing wine to be shipped directly to customers from an out of state winery. Not that there aren’t good wineries in the amazing state of Maryland.
Here is the section of their site describing the shipping policy and in which states you can have wine shipped directly to your doorstep…
“Thanks to stick-in-the-mud buzzkilling state legislators, wine may only be delivered to the following states:
- District of Columbia
- New Hampshire
- New Mexico
- New York
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
Each winery is different, so each Wine.Woot sale is posted with its own list of approved states. Be sure to check that list for details. If your state’s not on the list, no wine for you! Take it up with your state assemblyperson. We comply with all federal, state, and local laws in providing this wine.”- (Wine.Woot.com)
Czech it out, let me know if you’ve had good/bad/ugly experiences buying from them. I haven’t bought anything myself yet due to the restriction on shipping wine into Maryland and my lack of interest in accessories.
