Wine.comThis deal might be of interest to people with an interest in this blog; $30 for $60 of wine and accessories at They carry wine, gift sets, glasses, and have an interesting sake section. It can sadly not be used on a couple of the high end things, including my personal favourite, Veuve Cliquot (more details at the deal site). I’m going to need explore other things, instead, it seems.

I’ve been trying to expand my wine palate appropriately, which is hard on a budget and mostly happens at parties right now. I recently started reading Educating Peter, which has the subtitle, ‘How I Taught a Famous Movie Critic the Difference Between Cabernet and Merlot or How Anybody Can Become an (Almost) Instant Wine Expert’. It’s a really good primer on the subject. The info is presented in a narrative fashion, which makes it a lot easier for me to retain (recently in Soundbites, the bartender mentioned that someone had ordered a Stinger, and he had to look it up. I knew it not because I had studied it, but because there’s an anecdote about the drink in Boozehound).

Also, since I know there is some confusion; the law about shipping to Massachusetts was struck down at the beginning of 2010, as unconstitutional. While they do restrict the shipping cross state lines to MA, has a Massachusetts warehouse, which means for those who live here, they can indeed take advantage of this deal. For those of you who are not in MA, check their site for restrictions (and if you’ll be here for Arisia, we can talk about shipping to my place). blog, on twitter and on facebook.
