Woot! Wine! June 17, 2006 7:19 amPosted by Doug McCaughan in : Cool Sites, Of Interest, Politics, Regional Politics (SE), Touchy Subjects
For those that don’t know, Woot lists 1 product per day at midnight Central time (GMT -6) and sells it until they are out of stock. It might be junk or it might be an iPod $60 cheaper than anywhere else you could find one. Often the great stuff sells out in the first half hour of listing. Last I checked, Woot is affliated with Overstock.com.
What is woot.wine? We were all pretty despondent when we couldnâ€™t work out the logistics for massage.woot.com. We started to question the very idea of spinning off another new dot-woot. But then woot.com offered our Rinfrescante wine and we were positively deluged with inquiries from friends and family pleading for more (of course the cheapskates wanted more â€“ they got it for free). This was enough â€œmarket researchâ€ for us. We reactivated our wine-industry hookup and wine.woot.com was conceived.
So every week, wine.woot.com will uncork a sweet new wine deal.
Can I really buy wine on the Internet? Thanks to our esteemed Supreme Court, recent and dramatic changes in how wine can be sold and delivered in the U.S. allow wine.woot.com to bring wine directly from the winery to you.
What states can you ship to?Thanks to stick-in-the-mud buzzkilling state legislators, wine may only be delivered to the following states:
* Arizona (expect longer delivery times)
* District of Columbia
* Indiana (expect longer delivery times)
* Massachusetts (expect longer delivery times)
* New Hampshire
* New Jersey (expect longer delivery times)
* New Mexico
* New York
* North Carolina
* North Dakota
* South Carolina
* West Virginia
Of course Tennessee is not on the list. We wouldn’t want to lose our reputation as being a bunch of backwards hillbillies. Now whar’s my shine?!
Little sidenote, The Tennessee General Assembly website looks like one of the politicans had his highschool age child build the site. "Pages Created and Maintained by: Legislative Information Services"trackback
