Got an email from the Oregon Pinot Noir Club that I thought I'd share with everyone. Not great deals but it may be the start of something.
Stock market got you down? Perk up with significant savings on great Oregon wine with our post-holiday Bailout Package Wine Sale!
This is a "the more you buy the more you save" type of event, with a discount applied to your total order that gets bigger the more you purchase:

This sounds like the time to be part of a buying group. I'm not in the market for Oregon Pinot but if I were I certainly would want to be part of that 25% discount. I'm not familiar with them so I don't know what their regular pricing looks like and what their shipping costs are but if they have access to some of the less available small producers it could be a great opportunity to try new things.
Thanks for sharing.

No worries ... hope you find some gems. They usually have some very good small producers like Beaux Freres and Shea Vineyards.
I'll check it out but I'm not part of a buying group so it doesn't really make a lot of sense for me.
