For you Wine Lovers Out There

I love wine, and I know many of you out there do, too.  A couple of years ago, my husband and I noticed we were making at least one trip to the store per week to buy wine, whether it be for our home or to bring with us when we went to someone else’s home.  The cost of this endeavor began to add up quickly, so we started to buy wine by the case.  Yes, by the case.  We mixed it up – sometimes all white, sometimes all red, sometimes half and half.  It may seem like a large expense all at once, but when you break down the price per bottle, it actually saves a lot of money.

Besides loving wine, we love to find deals.  It has become a game where whenever we need to make a purchase, we try to find the best deal.  This is not a bad thing to enjoy doing considering we once got a first-class round trip-ticket upgrade to Asia with only one frequent flyer point per leg, per ticket.  Yes, we spent a total of four frequent flyer points + the cost of an economy class ticket to fly first-class, round trip to Asia!

I’ve discussed wine.  I’ve shared our love of deals.  Now let’s go to wine + deals!  How about if I told you we found a wine deal that is better than buying wine by the case?  If you have not heard of this already, check out Wines Till Sold Out (WTSO). It is a website that sells wine 30 -70% off Internet and store prices.  Each night at midnight Eastern Time, a wine is posted for sale until it is sold out.  One never knows how much is available, but if it is a wine you are interested, buy it up!  Once in a while, they will have “wine marathon” with 48-120 different wine choices available.

Is the wine good wine?  Yes!  There have been a few $100+ bottles we’ve had the opportunity to purchase and have saved for a special occasion.

Beware of a wine-buying addiction.  A friend purchased so much wine that he got a gift basket from WTSO for Christmas.  He now goes through periods of cutting himself off.  And he is not the only one of our friends to do this.

If you want to know how WTSO works, check out this link.  Frankly, you won’t find too much there as they keep the behind-the-scenes stuff a secret.  However, it will answer many of your basic questions.

Happy wine shopping!

About georgiegirlconfections

I've always dreamed of starting my own business one day. My struggle wasn't about how to do it, but instead, what I wanted to do. I realized how much I love baking - it is what I turn to when I am bored or stressed. There are so many things to create and so many ways in which to create them. I look forward to sharing my favorite treats with you.
