29% off the price

Jason, the wine guy at "the Cellars," rung up my 6 bottles of wine on Friday afternoon. The "progressive sale" took 29% off the price of my wine for which I paid $55.20. It's simple... the precent off is the same as the date. The sale started on January 21st with 21% off and ended January 30th with 30% off. Sorry I didn't post this earlier!

Here are the bottles that went into my wine bag:

1. De Loach - Chardonnay from California
2. Columbia Crest - Chardonnay from Washington
3. Meridian - Chardonnay from Napa, California
4. Juan Benegas - Malbec from Argentina
5. Tilia - Merlot from Argentina
6. Lan Rioja - Crianza from Spain

  1. Interesting Sale. I guess you have to decide if you want the "best wine" or the best price possible! Skål!

  2. I like that idea of the sale except that all the shoes in my size would be gone by then!

    When's the wine tasting?

  3. Sounds like it's going to be a good party!

  4. Don't drink it all at once, you hear.

  5. It's good to see you're staying with your theme of food and drink.

    I'll simply reiterate Brattcat's comment, but also note that we say this only because we love you and not because we think you're a lush! ;-)

  6. Love that Malbec, did you like it. I had a Italian Merlot yesterday, Santa Margherita Versato, which I enjoyed. Have you tried it?

  7. Cop to Leif: Son, your eyes look a little blood shot! How much have you had to drink tonight?

    Leif to Cop: Well (hic), Occifer, your eyes look a l'il glazed! How many trips have you made through the (hic) drive-through at the Krispy (hic) Kreme so far this shift?

    (Sound of handcuffs clinking shut on Leif's wrists...)

    Hey, Leif, «Louis» just read about a guy in prison in the UK running his criminal enterprise on Facebook while in prison...

  8. Tsk! Tsk! I didn't convince you to buy VillaMura wine in my post of January 25? A special wine occasion? Are bloggers invited?!

  9. Wonder if they sell anything before 10th of the month. People like to maximize their deals :)

  10. I think it would be most interesting if you duplicate this post and then under each type of wine give us your impression of it. I don't drink much of anything but like wine with meals and would be eager to know what you would recommend.

  11. I like the idea !!

    I'd be shopping once a month - the last day of the month of course ..

  12. Leif! That Sale Procedure is super super cool! A Fraction added as the same day of the month! Very Interesting! I am very very happy with your advertisements to your Local shops there! Maybe I should do the same sometime too :D

    God Bless and Have a Great Week Coming!


  13. Have you ever tried South African wines. Its comparable (if not better) than the best in the world.

  14. Both you and Alexa (The Road is Mine) have wine store photos today. I like a good wine with dinner...what time do you want me to drop by?

    This looks like a happy fellow, too.

  15. No reduction on the French wines? :-)

  16. Ooooo - wine! You're making me jealous!!!
