Wooters be aware that the $5 all you can ship is gone. You will now have to pay $5 for every order (not item, but order). There is a new cart feature which allows you to order multiple items at the same time for $5 per order. BUT just because you add an item to your cart doesn't mean you have it reserved, so you can't just wait until end of day to submit your order.

I wish I understood why sometimes Wellington will ship to NJ and sometimes it won't

In for one, PW always offers great wines, and this is a great price.

I got a similar offer of the 2006 vintages of these wines and they were really good syrahs. Amazing QPR at this price. I wasn't as impressed with the PW cab I picked up at similar prices.

Oops! There's a mistake in the description. The code monkeys are hard at work fixing it. This offer is all EnglandCrest, 2007 and 2008.

Got a bunch of this in the '06 vintage from Woot a number of years ago. Popped a bottle when we first got it, and did not love it. We popped a bottle of England Crest a month or two ago with stuffed pork chops and it was great. Both my wife and mother-in-law claim they don't like Syrah. The wine was in a decanter and they did not see what I opened. Both of them commented on how nice the wine was and were surprised when I told them it was Syrah.

Talk to me Peter. Somehow I ended up with 9 of the '07 England Crest, none of the '08.
How do they differ?
Do I need more '07?
Klez, want all three of the '07s, or some other mix?

Same - I was trying to decide if I wanted to get some Vella cheese to take advantage of the combined shipping and just as I was getting ready to check out they yanked it. So far this is the first deal I've been remotely tempted to purchase, and it's been replaced with some random grapeseed oil. Holey moley.

I don't think it actually went that quick. The description was wrong, and they had to get the code monkeys on it to fix it.

I'm guessing they took it offline to limit the number of mistaken orders, but will bring it back with a corrected description later.

sad (but my wallet is glad) that I missed that - that being said, looking at the transaction statistics there was not too much available, huh?

LOL. At least you're not alone. Judging by posts here and on the grape seed oil discussion, several people thought the same thing.

So, if the description was wrong, are they going to honor the orders for those of us who ordered before they took it down? Because I imagine that the type of wine that was advertised is what people to expect when their orders come....does anyone know how woot has dealt with this in the past?

Sounds like it should be 3 each 2007/2008 Englandcrest. I was assuming one of each for me.

It seems like only half of what was listed was incorrect. I'm guessing -- but I wouldn't be surprised if they offer to cancel orders for people who ordered based on the incorrect description and are unhappy with the actual wines in stock.
