Just When You Least Expect It – Last Bottle Festivus Marathon Madness, December 18th!

December 17, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

LastBottle Marathon LogoIn its typical style, when you least expect it (meaning – the day before the event), Last Bottle, a purveyor of the fine wines at the value prices, announced yet another “Madness Marathon”. The promise is to make it the most over the top ever, and considering that at 1 PM Pacific time Last Bottle plans to offer Domaine de la Romanee Conti (yep, the sacred DRC!), that might not be an empty threat.

Here is all you need to know:

The event takes place on Thursday, December 18th, starting at 9 AM Pacific time (Noon Eastern), the wines will be offered at a neck-breaking (hmmm, may be, finger-breaking? ) speed at the Last Bottle web site. No notifications of any sort, not even on twitter – you have to click “refresh” all the time. No minimums, all the wines you will buy will ship free, shortly after the event will be over. The event will last for two days or until all the wine will be sold out.

You will need to have an account with Last Bottle, and I also highly recommend to be logged into your account all the time during the event, with your payment information filled it – if you are not fast enough, you are not getting that amazing wine at an amazing price – there is always someone who clicks faster than you.

As usual, when I mention Last Bottle, in case you don’t have an account with them already, I always offer an opportunity to sign up – if you will sign up using this link, you will get $5 off your first purchase, and yes, I will get $20 after your first purchase. The beauty is that moving forward, you can sign up your friends, and now you will be the one to get $20 after they will buy the wine from the Last Bottle.

Okay, enough reading – go make some room in your cellar – you will need it. And if you will be the one to buy the DRC, can you please at least leave a comment here, so I will be able to envy you?

Happy [great value wine] Hunting!

    Robin Williams said that DRC is God’s way of saying you have too much f**ing money.

      Bill, I would actually love to be in that position…

        I had the privilege of a taste of a La Tache from the ’80’s probably 10 years ago. It was wasted on me, I’m afraid. That was a while ago and my tastes have changed since then. So maybe now, I’d see the beauty. Regardless, I’m not sure that I could ever be rich enough to spend that kind of money. It’s just not right. Now, if someone else wanted to treat me. I’d be fine with that.

          Bill, I have no idea if I will be able to appreciate La Tache as well, but it would be an experience nevertheless. No, I’m not in position to spends thousands of dollars on a bottle of wine (however, there is nothing wrong with those who can 🙂 ) – and I honestly don’t need to own that bottle – I would love an opportunity just to taste and experience, that’s all. But the sheer fact of DRC been sold at the “flash sale” site is staggering, in my mind. At the same time, I know that WTSO offered Petrus a few times – very affordable, at $999 🙂
