I used to use California Wine Club but stopped after I started getting charged $15 for a bottle wine that sold locally for $7. If they were hitting you on cheap wine that much...imagine on the nicer stuff. Save yourself and do some reading or check with your local wine store for local wine clubs. PM Sodar...he's an expert on wines!

I'm no expert, but have had good luck with www.cellarcollections.com. Tell Stephen that Craig in Ohio sent you.

Most of the time you best bet is to just buy local. If there is something specific you can't find shoot me a PM if it's from Napa. I'm not that far from there

I used wine.com many years ago just for the fun of it. I don't know how it compared to local prices but it was nice to have different stuff delivered to us each month to try. I usually just go to the local store now....

Unless you are looking for something pretty specific, it would be tough to beat your local prices even with a large order. We recieve shipments all the time from wine clubs that we belong to, but it barely pencils out with the club discount. The only reason we belong is so that we get a crack at limited releases. Also kind of a pain to get things shipped to the office so it can be signed for. The message on the box is hilarious, it actually instructs the fedex guy to ID the person and not to turn over the box if the recipient is "intoxicated".:D

Thanks for making me retaste my lunch Harold:mad::D

I normally go to the grociers aisle... pretty competitive unless you are looking for a specific.

Sodar? do you own a site, or are you simply a coniseur(sp?)

Thanks for the ideas and sites. Sounds like i might as well stick to buying local then. However, on impulse I ordered a 6 bottle pack from a site but didn't realize I might need to be home to sign for it! I'll probably never get it since i'm always at work!

My ox tail does not look like that, takes 2 days to make and is de-fatted after a sit in the fridge overnight. Truly a delicacy.
