Firesale on Vintages Online Exclusives

Almost feel like the Town Crier on this one, but there are some serious deals going on at Vintages Online Exclusives: https://www.vintagesshoponline.com/vintages/Home.aspx?lang=en 

Here's how it works:

1) Sign up, free
2) Order wines
3) Pick a store for delivery (closest to home or work)
4) Pay

Delivery is free, 1 bottle or 100.   They will call you when it comes in - you go pick it up.  Just that simple. 

I've been buying wine on Vintages Online Exclusives for 5 years now, and I really hope they don't stop.  It is an incredible value-added service the LCBO has, one that is so overlooked because most of the "serious" wine-buyers are older than computers.  That's all I can really think of when I see 95+ point wines firesold, yet I see Silver Foxes almost come to blows when wines are released in store.

Better yet, these wines are exclusive, very low numbers are purchased, which is why they use the interwebz as a medium for sale - to be...fair to all consumers.  So when you walk into a party or serve one of these wines in your home, pretty much no one will say "Oh I have a few of these in the cellar", at least not that vintage.

So come one come all to the firesale of Vintages Online Exclusives.  Hopefully this is not the end of the program, but it if is, my cellar has been the beneficiary of some truly awesome wines thanks to this program.
