Last month's coverage on scoring terrific discounts included some specific places to find deals. One of those was Wine Access, an online retailer seemingly dabbling in a little liquidation, some negocianting, some subscriptions, and a lot of straightforward online retailing. I like Wine Access for their mix of domestic and international offerings, excellent customer service, and some unique private label offerings. Like most other online outlets, pricing is variable, so you need to know what you're shopping for, but if you can apply discounts like the one linked to below, pricing can be quite competitive.
To incentivize newcomers, they've shared a link for Imbiber's Journal readers for $50 off any order of $150 or more that can be combined with free shipping. Full disclosure: if you use the link below, your favorite wine writer will get a referral credit.
How can you extract the most value out of this offer? Start adding wines to your basket using the link above. When you hit $150 (on 6 or more bottles) you can either stop check out or round out a case - your choice.
Their selection is constantly changing and wines I've only just had the chance to open from a recent delivery are already sold out, so I hesitate to recommend specific wines, but consider this as you peruse the options: if you were to add 6 bottles at $25 each (such as the long-lived Château Puygueraud,) you'd hit the threshold, but really only pay $16.67 apiece - that's a discount of over 30%.
