Woot Cellars Holiday Gift Shop

"Woot Cellars?" They balked, all condescendingly. It was almost as if they believed there was virtually no correlation between orphaned consumer electronics and wine. Now take a look at the picture to the right. Those are the faces of triumph. Those are the festive faces of people who drink wine and work at Woot. The faces of winners. Cheers.

Yeah, more adequate gift. I'm glad you guys made way too much of this.

How do you have a Plus offer in which you can get so many current Woot Cellars offerings alone, but not the Pour Pour Me?

I already have Toothstejnn, Adequate Gift and Quaffmor in my cellar. I'd like to try Phat Goose and Pour Pour Me. It's possible to buy Phat Goose alone but not Pour Pour Me.

Can't somebody fix this problem? I don't want to buy an entire mixed case, which includes wines I already have, just to try a couple wines that I don't have.

An offer with 2 Phat Goose and 2 Pour Pour me would be great.

Any reviews on the mixed case and QPR? I've been tempted to try some of these, but haven't been tempted enough to pull the trigger.


Edit: Found what I was looking for here and I'm in for one mixed case to test the waters.

Wondering if this mixed case is worth picking up for gifts. Are these something I can give without embarrassing myself to the wine lovers on my list here in northern California wine country?

Most are fine to give but I would be hesitant to give toothy 2 to a casual wine drinker as people can be put off by cab franc. It's not a casual easy drinking wine typically.

I agree with you on cab franc's in general, but this one is very smooth and all too easy to drink. I got 8 bottles last time and am thinking about picking up 12 more because it has proven to be a crowd pleaser.

My one test did not go well, he poured it down the drain. I didn't taste it so it's possible it was a bad bottle. He said it threw a lot of sediment as well.

Doing a big-time Happy Dance ... when Toothy 2 originally showed up last month, I thought for sure I was going to have to miss out on a Wine.Woot offering for the first time in many, many years. But now that Ohio's back on the list ...

In for 3.

South Carolina needs to be added to the list for Adequate Gift. Seriously, because I just bought it two days ago. Unless those bags can't be shipped into the state for some reason.

So, is West Virginia permanently off ALL the shipping lists on WineWoot! ? I have been unable to purchase and restock my meager inventory for several weeks now. As far as I can tell there are no FedEx restrictions for this state. Or did someone just drop the ball and assume that West Virginia is part of Virginia (it isn't btw)?

We appear to be in the same boat here in Kansas. I can't begin to imagine how much wine I've purchased thru wine.woot since Kansas changed their laws in 2009 and wineries began licensing to ship to Kansas. Now, all of a sudden, Kansas is not on ANY wine.woot lists...including all of those for wines from wineries that I've purchased from in the past. What gives? I can't imagine that every winery that wine.woot deals with has dumped Kansas. Can somebody give me an explanation? Every time that I've inquired, I get the same old song and dance that apparently this winery or that winery is not licensed to ship to Kansas...but that makes no sense whatsover, since so many of them have in the past. The exact same wines that I've purchased on previous offers are now no longer shipping to Kansas. Did they all just give up on Kansas? Sorry for the rant, but it's very frustrating...I've always enjoyed the vast majority of wines that I've purchased on wine.woot, but that appears to have come to an end...

For those in states where wine.woot used to ship but has not lately... this is an ongoing situation over the last couple months. There is a discussion thread about it HERE or you can jump directly to a summary post which lists the affected states HERE.

I just started homebrewing beer about 6 months ago so my cellar is a little more empty than usual. That in combination with not having tried any of these wines make it an autobuy.

I am generally more than pleased with the value of wine I get from woot cellars...

My only alternative as far as I can tell is to get my wine shipped to my son in New York who may or may not be home to get the shipment then wait 4 or 5 months until I go visit to pick it up. Not ideal...

I just opened one of my bottles of Toothstejnn from a previous order, and I love it! It's really hard to not buy more.

Very light/clean on the palate, super smooth and not acidic.

I'll have to stop myself from drinking it all... If you like smooth and easily drinkable, it's wonderful

Michigan too. In fact, MI was left off every ship-to list in this offer except the mixed case which contains 3 of the wines which supposedly do not ship to MI individually.

It's bad enough that there have been shipping issues affecting the availability of woot wines to certain states but to see eligible states left off the lists in error must chap WD's ass.

Any notes/comments on the Phat Goose? The RS worries me. Is this on the sweet side? I do not like my reds sweet. The One Last Kiss was too sweet for my palate. Any thoughts?

On another note, popped a bottle of Toothy the other night and quite enjoyed it. Good QPR. No notes as I had a houseful of people over for a football party 😁

I don't remember it being sweet at all. Came off like a lighter-styled CdR. I've heard it's gained some weight since I tasted it, which wouldn't surprise me at all.

The detectable level of RS is 1%. One Last Kiss was 2%, Phat Goose is 0.35% so the sweetness should not be noticeable to you.

It's an easy drinking GSM, not especially complex but enjoyable.

I have 2, plus a magnum of Polyphemus that I'm not sure will ever be opened - seems I don't have too many occasions which call for a magnum these days. And a few Adequate Gifts, and Pour Pour Me's. But no Toothy - too bad I'm stuck in no-ship Purgatory.

The lists match what WCC provided. Confirmed with WD's people that the list running on the mixed case in this sale is indeed correct.
