$25 for $75 Worth of Wine from Wine Insiders' Online Store

Appalachian Dracula was famously quoted as saying, "I never drink…moonshine." Teach the original Dracula a thing or two with today's deal: for $25, you get $75 worth of fine wine mailed directly to your door from Wine Insiders. Shipping is free if you order a full case. Otherwise, you may apply part of the value of this Groupon to pay for shipping, as well as sales tax. This Groupon is not valid for club memberships.

Wine Insiders sprang fully formed from the head of founder John Davis 25 years ago, when he used his octopus-like industry connections to assemble a panel of wine experts for the sole purpose of seeking out the best and most affordable wines for his customers. On average, this league of extraordinary oenophiles approves only one out of every 100 bottles sampled, ensuring that only the most delicious wines stain their customers' lips a rich purple. They're fairly confident in their taste, too: if you're not 100% delighted by the vinos they've selected, they'll refund the full cost of the order, no questions asked—not even "So, you doing anything fun this weekend?"

Despite its legendary pickiness, Wine Insiders offers a huge variety of red and white wines, helpfully broken down into syrahs, pinot grigios, Rieslings, cabernet sauvignons, and more with informative descriptions of each. A 2006 Monarch Glen merlot ($9.99)—an aroma-rich varietal with notes of cherry and plum—is a good place to start, as is a 2008 Glass Ridge chardonnay, which has a rich baked apple pie and cinnamon flavor ($9.99). For a more targeted crash course in Bacchic beverages, try a wine assortment such as Big Bold Reds, Summer Whites, John's Favorites, and the anybody's-guess Mystery. All wine assortments come by the dozen and start at $107.83; each is carefully selected and can include wines that retail for more than $20 a bottle. Shipping is free with these boxed collections.

Ordering wine online straight from Wine Insiders' experts spares customers the hassle of scavenging through a confusing network of specialty shops and cavernous mega-marts or of building an enormous steel drilling rig in a misguided effort to draw wine from the bowels of the earth. Pay a visit to the Wine Insiders website and rustle up a panoply of grape-based potions with today's Groupon.

An adult 21 or over must be present to receive any wine shipments; first-time customers only. Available for redemption starting on August 31.

too bad, i missed it too.

I did this last time and one of the reds I got was excellent. I am away and can't check which it was, so don't know if they would still have it. Their selection is pretty limited.

I would love to be able to order wines. Here is PA, all alcohol is controlled by price-gouging state liquor stores. :(
