Wine 'liquidation': The deals pour freely online

Wine-span 

The website winestilsoldout.com does just that: It sells just one wine at a time and at an incredibly steep discount until it’s all gone -- usually within eight hours. You can get in on the action too.

Since this article was published, many new players have emerged. Rather than offering "liquidated" wines, they work directly with the winery to effectively become a new distribution channel for them. These companies actually never take stock of the wine so they don't have to deal with inventory. There are a couple of them out there, but the one with the most compelling offerings is Lot18.

http://www.lot18.com/i/FriendsandFamily.

This site offers wines that are typically hard to come by, with case productions as low as a couple hundred.

The best part about this is the fact that they are offering occasional coupons on sites such as LivingSocial, so you wind up getting premium wines at 50-60% off the already competitive prices. They have been offering free or 1 cent shipping every several weeks.

I've found some great deals on this site but you have to watch for them. Many of the deals are indeed closeouts but they are on wines that are not very desirable. If you keep an eye on every one of their emails, you will likely come across something you like at a discount.
