Fiendishly clever, Woot! I was so grossed out the first time I watched it that I never even noticed the URL!

Oh. It's not really as bad as it sounds. It's Always Sunny explained it actually pretty accurately.

I guess to put it more discreetly, at least I won't be part of the "it's disturbing" crowd when looking for the link.

I cannot say that my taste buds were in prime shape by the end of the night but still 99 bucks a case is a killer deal if you like GSM's. It's not going to compete with France but it's a pretty good Tuesday night wine for the price!



Hmmmm.... I'm guessing two buck chuck could've been served as the last bottle of the night at the Wootception, and it would've been warmly received at that point.

Lots of up and down on the wine. I like GSM (but perhaps based upon the robust Washington grapes), but ready for a flier on this.

Otherwise, it's a $60 t-shirt that the wife will be really impressed that I own!

I honestly find the wine unappetizing after viewing the video. I would not be able to enjoy the wine as I would be thinking of drinking Gus' bath water. Ewwwww!

Sorry to be the bearer (no pun intended) of bad news, but it looks like more URLs may follow as the wine sells. At least so hints Woot. So hope for no more sales?

A little off topic, but since this is getting staff exposure, is it in the pipeline to ever have a beer.woot? I'm not a big wine guy, and it would be neat to be able to get all kinds of beer (or even Woot! brewed) from different areas.

If not, I always have local beer/wine specialty stores. Those are great.

Probably not ... there are too many laws (for the distributors) in place for beer.woot or whiskey.woot to ever occur.

Makes sense. That's what I was worried about, but since there's already a wine.woot, I wasn't sure if the law just applied to all alcohol in general (or maybe ABV limits, etc.).

In for a case, but since wines ordered through WOOT have been taking 23 to 27 days to arrive, maybe WOOT should switch to winter shipping rates. Don't expect this case to show up until almost October. Is there a reason the wineries have been so slow between ordering and shipping? Has WOOT been sitting on the orders before giving them to the vinter?

The wineries on the West Coast send the wine (still in normal case boxes) to Wine.Woot from their refrigerated storage warehouses to WW's refrigerated warehouse for re-packaging in shipping boxes. Usually their wine is still on a pallet.

Then WW separates and re-packages them into the separate regions for refrigerated shipping to the regional centers. Said centers should be within 1 or 2 shipping days of us. Once the refrigerated truck arrives at the regional center, FedEx is contacted and picks up your wine. IIRC, these trucks are on set schedules and only leave once each week.

There is no tracking information until FedEx is contacted.


In addition, if there is going to be extreme heat (from winery to WW and/or from WW to us) during the non-refrigerated portions of our wine, WineDavid delays shipment to protect our wine. It doesn't do any good to ship in the refrigerated truck if the wine is going to be in 100° heat after it leaves that truck.


If you don't like the delays, you can always pay the $10 per item and get it with 2-day shipping.
