Re: de Negoce offer

123 Merlot released To boot, I got a hell of a deal on this wine as it's a '17 vintage. What was/is priced at $60+ out of the tasting room, I can offer to you today at $10/bottle, $132/case. Still on my first cup of coffee this morning but struggling with the math on this. Is it a bakers dozen in t...

Re: Sokolblosser 50th anniversary sale $40 pinot for $6.75

Not sold out. Still showing available for me, but only 6 bottles. I'm guessing they either are slowly releasing inventory after getting slammed or they have started to limit it to 6 bottles per order. Unfortunately 6 bottles is still $40 shipping so not nearly as good of a deal. Doesn't even show o...
