  • Back to GdP's comment.  Wine prices, esp of "collectible" stuff, have gone up faster than inflation.  A lot of the luxury buyers--out to impress--aren't very familiar with sourcing back vintages, they just know it's really hard to get on some mailing list, so they buy new wine from that list once they get to the top.  Someone who bought a great ...

  • Invino?  They are also a flash site, and I have used them for that.  Bought a few things, but their shipping costs are kind of opaque, so I use other sites more.I have ordered only wines that I am somewhat familiar with from them--haven't really gone out on a limb on things I cannot vet independently.  And here's a reason to be wary:  Jeff HIll,...

  • So several years ago while touring the CA wine country I came across a nice place where I liked both the proprieters and the wine. I signed up for their monthly wine club. A month later instead of getting my wine I get a notice that they can't ship to MA. Somehow I remained on their mailing list and now they can ship to MA so I ordered my very f... Read More
