Wine Access: New Amex Offers + 15% Off Next 3 Orders

Wednesday, October 28, 2020

Wine Access is out with a new Amex Offer, there's a 15% off option for existing customers, and new customers can get $50 off $150 with referral.

Let's get right into it...

Amex Offers
  • $30 off $100
  • Can be used 3x (up to $90 back on $300)
  • -or-
  • $20 off $200
  • Can be used 3x (up to $60 back on $600)
  • Can reach targets through multiple transactions
  • Expires 2/28/2021
I see it on personal cards (Green, Gold, Platinum, Hilton). But not on my business cards, and not on any of my wife's cards.
Existing Customers: 15% Off Next Three Orders

If I log into my existing Wine Access account and go to Credits & Promotions I see an offer for 15% off my next 3 purchases.
New Customers: $50 off $150 w/Referral

If you're new to Wine Access you can get $50 off your first $150+ order. This is stackable with the Amex offer.

Here's my referral link if you're a new Wine Access customer:

Bottom Line

They seem to be pivoting from new customer acquistion to encouraging ongoing spend, which is sensible and good to see.

I have been enjoying their wines quite a bit this year. That Elk Cove Richmond Pinot Noir arrived and is fantastic. I cranked through four bottles of that $40 "Yesterday" Cab (that was supposedly from a $500/btl grape source). I wish I'd bought more of that.

Inventory varies by state, but currently here are a few wines that stand out to me:


$50 off $150 at What to buy in California?

Wednesday, October 7, 2020

Here's another 33% discount code:

AMF50 for $50 off $150 (source, HT @TheRetailTrader)'s product availability varies by state. A friend in California asked for some suggestions so I had a look a the assortment there. Wow - it's like two different retailers, at least in categories like Burgundy.

Six Picks that ship to California

2016 Vaughn Duffy Suacci Pinot Noir

If you've been curious about Vaughn Duffy but not quite ready to take the plunge on 6 bottles, here's a chance to try just a bottle.

2018 Cakebread Chardonnay

A rare white wine recommendation from me, but I can't imagine *not* having an occasion to share a bottle of this at some point. It's debatable whether Cakebread is more known for their Cab or Charddonay. I say Cab but other might disagree. Here's an in-depth review of the brand.

2018 Sea Smoke Ten Pinot Noir

I love having a bottle of this on hand when I want to break out an elegant bottle of Pinot Noir for a special occasion. I find it benefits from some aging, if you can manage the patience to wait.

2017 Balletto Pinot Noir

A great example of an outstanding wine at a fair price that's hard to find in Massachusetts. More here.

2018 Allegrini Valpolicella

I've got a soft spot in my heart for Valpolicella, and this is a textbook example. Check out this trip report for more on Allegrini's full lineup.

2016 Columbia Crest H3 Cabernet

Columbia Crest, at all price points in their lineup, has been an ever-reliable friend over the years. I think it was the first wine I ever bought based on ratings from Wine Spectator. It was something like a 90 point rated Columbia Crest Grand Estates Merlot (Grand Estates being one notch below H3 in cost) for something like $8. It was a great wine, and that quality to price ratio strength continues with Columbia Crest to this day.


Ends Today: 10% Off + 10% Napa Fire Relief at Wine Access

Monday, October 5, 2020

Wine Access is offering 10% Off + 10% towards Napa Fire Relief through Monday October 5th, 2020.

Their "Limited Time Offer" wines are excluded, but there are some good wines to be had:

I'm noticing their inventory vary depending on whether I'm logged in to the site, meaning inventory varies by state. So poke around and see what else might be interesting to you?

I took a different approach than I usually do when ordering from them. I've been adequately pleased with their assortment in categories I'm more familiar with (like California Pinot Noir and Cabernet) so I took a flyer on a Volnay:

...then topped it off with some more affordable Beaujolais and Burgundy. We'll see how they go.

Free shipping on 6+ bottles, or $120+ (this is calculated before the 10% off, which is nice).
