My drink of choice has always been wine – a good glass of wine. Now, my taste in wine I am positive differs from a really wine aficionado. And that is just fine. While I have a few brands that I really enjoy — Cupcake brand and a few from Trader Joe’s (Dr. Beckermann Auslese Rheinhessen in particular) — I am always looking for a new type to try. I recently had the chance to try out a new website called Underground Cellar. If you are familiar with websites like Groupon or LivingSocial, this is a similar concept just with wine!
Underground Cellar’s wine curators search for unique and private staches of hard-to-find wines. If they like it, they create a deal for that wine for you to purchase. Every single bottle of wine is eligible for a completely free random upgrade to something of a higher quality. So basically, you can essentially only pay $15 for a $100 bottle of wine! This is not like a wine club where you have to pay monthly fees. It is completely free, with no fees other than the wine you decide you want to buy!
The cool part of Underground Cellar is their CloudCellar. Say you see a bottle of wine you like, but you want to wait to have it shipped until you buy a few more bottles to save on shipping, you can! They will store your wine for you for free in perfect humidity and temperature! When you accumulate 12 bottles of wine, shipping is free.
|Today’s deal! $30 bottle and get upgraded to the $75 bottle FREE! Unfortunately for you, the other 5 deals sold out so this is all that is left right now.|
The discussions area is really interesting too. I like how everyone asks some great questions and you can learn a thing or two about wine!
