Do you love wine? Do you love a great deal? Is this the first time since Covid began that you will be packing your house with friends and family for Thanksgiving?

If you answered yes to these questions, WineText has some BIG news for you.

The economy may have taken a turn for the worse, but the good news is that you won't have to compromise the quality of wine that you serve your guests over the holidays. On November 11th (11/11) WineText.com is offering their annual $11.11 secret wine sale, and you won't want to miss it!

Here are the details:

What is the $11.11 Sale?

Think of the $11.11 sale as a mystery box that's a guaranteed win!

You won't know what you're buying, you just know that when you open it up, you will be happy. Who among us doesn't love a good surprise?

All you have to do is sign up at WineText.com to get involved. You will receive a text on 11/11 and simply have to reply with the number of cases you would like to receive at just $11.11 per bottle ($133.32/case).

Why are the Bottles a Secret?

The wineries would be furious with WineText for advertising the bottles at these prices! The only way to pull this off is to hide their identities and let you find out for yourself what you got once the case(s) arrive at your home. You'll likely be receiving some bottles that retail for $50 at near 80% markdowns.

What Will I Receive and When Will I Receive it?

The $11.11 deal includes any type of wine from Cabernet, Pinot Noir, Brunello, Barolo, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, etc. There's certainly something for everyone. Most people will get four different types of wine, but there's no guarantee of what that mix or breakdown might be. Every combination (including 12 bottles of the same wine) is possible. 

WineText can NOT guarantee that all boxes will arrive in time for Thanksgiving, but some certainly will. What they can guarantee is that they will arrive with plenty of time left in the holiday season for gift giving, and/or sharing with friends and family.

If you would like to get involved, we recommend ordering as soon as possible once you receive the text. The deal sold out last year and there are a limited number of cases available. 

It's important to note that they can't ship to the following states: AL, AK, AR, DE, HI, IL, KY, MA, MI, MS, ND, OK, RI, SD, TX, UT

The Most Important Wine Time of the Year!

Halloween has officially come and gone. It's now time to think beyond the wine that pairs with your fun size packet of Sour Patch Kids.

Now that we have entered peak-holiday season, we wanted to arm you with answers to the two most common questions that have plagued wine buyers:

1. What are the best sub-$20 wines to serve at my Thanksgiving table?

  • Riesling: It's not just sticky sweet. There's a range of different styles. The reason it works so well is most are lower in alcohol. This means that you can drink more of it and keep your endurance going all day long... and you'll have a better chance staying awake for that NFL triple header!
  • Cremant d'AlsaceIt's always festive to uncork bubbly, and it actually tends to pair well with thanksgiving foods! These are higher in acidity and refreshing - but also jam packed with berry flavors. Move over delicious canned Ocean Spray cranberry sauce... there's a new sheriff in town!
  • Zinfandel: No red wine grape is more synonymous with America than this! Zinfandels give you an incredible high-value bang for your buck; the grape has waned in popularity a bit over the years, but that just means there's even more value to be found in the good ones.

2. What's the best wine to get my boss who I want to impress? How about my in-laws who are wine snobs?

Many people think big "brand name wines" are always great because they're familiar, and they also give your boss an idea of how much money you spent (aka "how much you appreciate them").

Those cliche names include Caymus and The Prisoner from California, or Dom Perignon and Veuve Cliquot from Champagne. There's nothing wrong with those wines–but if you want to stand out from the rest, and really knock them off their feet–consider these names:

  • Grower Champagne (like Aubry): Unlike the big brand names above, Aubry is a grower champagne. He farms his own vineyards rather than sourcing grapes in bulk from other growers. It's this high attention to detail, seeing projects through from start to finish, that you know your boss appreciates.
  • Highly Rated BordeauxIt's crazy to think that $150 per bottle is a great value, but that's exactly what wines like this present. Ten years ago, Bordeaux was arguably known as the most expensive wine region in the world. It's more recently fallen out of fashion, and collectible wines from neighboring regions like Burgundy and Rhone have shot sky-high, while the wines of Bordeaux have remained fairly stable. This presents a gifting (and investment!) opportunity for you, as a wine savvy shopper impressing your in-laws, boss, etc.
