Conventional wisdom among wine consumers: as you mature in your wine buying habit, you gravitate from new world wines (and thus mailing lists) to the subtleties of fine Burgundy. While I do love a great Burgundy… I still get excited when a mailer arrives in my inbox. I’ve been at this for about 20 years now, and buy from more mailers than ever.
For me, mailers present the opportunity to buy exceptional, hard-to-find wines at affordable prices. I never buy more wines than I want and I never buy hostage wines (You must buy wines A & B in order to get wine C).
Some of my regular mailing list purchases include:
- Black Sears
- Dalla Valle
- Kosta Browne
- Rivers Marie
- Switchback Ridge
- Williams Selyem
I am sure I’m forgetting some but you get the point.
With the soft economy, getting on mailing lists has never been easier. Even if you’re new to the hobby I suspect you won’t have to wait long to obtain your favorite wines.
What are your favorite mailing lists and why?
