Yes, thanks Russ, info is nice to see. I got sniped at the last second last night but also won a few auctions. All as it should be. Thank goodness for sniping, otherwise I’d buy wayyyy too much!

Worked great. Thank you for everything. [cheers.gif]
I wanted to point out that from Russ's transparency and personal attention to the courtesy of the customer service staff, Winebid is a class-act company that I will continue to use enthusiastically!

Russ, am I reading that correctly that you are adding bottles during the week? It has become a Sunday night ritual in my house to peruse the new week's offerings with a glass in hand, but really that's the one time a week I look at new listings. How do you decide on what to list later and is this a new policy/practice?
Hi JViz- for the most part, the vast majority of the new auction items will be loaded on Sunday night- we don't want to disrupt your Sunday night ritual! In the past, we have occasionally added wine during the week when there was a huge overflow from the prior week that wasn't ready for Sunday night. However, this year has been so crazy because of the pandemic, and we are getting a LOT of wine in, and often it comes in too late in the week to be ready for Sunday night. Our inspectors and photographers are really busy, and we don't like to let wine sit out of auction for the extra week. Plus, we are adding a lot more high quality "buy now" wine- some consignors and many buyers are asking for that. When we do upload a big batch of new wine mid-week, we'll definitely let you know about it, as we did this past week by email and app push notification. And, if you have your favorites set up, you will also get notified in your weekly favorites email.

Maybe you want to make WineBid an early Friday evening and Sunday night ritual? [wow.gif] Your feedback is important and valued- let me know what you think!

Russ, It's been my habit to look for wines I'm interested once. Almost always Sunday night, sometimes Monday. I'm sure that's true of many regular customers. I'd suggest if you do a late add to get them in before some deadline, then send out some opt-in email reminder linking us to just the late adds. That should help both potential buyers and sellers of those wines.

Thanks for the feedback, Wes. That's how we do it right now, although sounds like we should make it more prominent and clear when we do mid-week adds. More to come soon!

I like half bottles as much as anyone, but paying 83 for a half of 2014 Montrose feels a little steep when the full 750 sells at 96

Lol. Normally I’ld agree but one was a NZ Pinot that went for over $80 all in. Seems high. Probably worth it from a juice stand point but that is a pretty big premium on a $35 bottle. Other was a 99 NSG . Sold for more than lowest WS retail. I’m taking my ball and going home. Until next Sunday.

I've been plucking some of the '05 Jean Bourdy without much challenge the last few weeks.

I don't bid on that many lots but don't like bidding against wine board members, so if your handle is obvious (or you PM me) I won't bid against you.
