A creamy, pretty-textured red with plum and chocolate character, round and refined tannins and a juicy finish. I like the savory aftertaste. Drink in 2022.

This opens with subdued aromas of leafy underbrush, leather and truffle. The no-frills palate offers sour cherry, clove and licorice alongside solid tannins that leave a firm rather drying finish. Drink after 2024.

wtso blog wine pairing guide and recipe pairing

by WTSO | January 18, 2022 | Seasonal

For some, it doesn’t get any better than savoring a generous glass of rich red wine on a cold winter evening. Depending on variables like food pairing, guest preferences, or the opportunity to switch things up a bit, white wines can also give immense pleasure during this time of year. When seeking bottles of white wine to keep warm, it’s always helpful to take factors like alcohol, oak treatment, lees, and residual sugar into account. Consider the following bottles when the temperature dips.

Who We Are

Quality wines from around the globe guaranteed

Since our beginnings a decade ago, our online wine store's membership base and service area have grown, but our goal has always been the same: to let our members experience the world's best wine at inexpensive prices. To achieve this, our flash wine sales feature only high-end wines selected by our team, all at inexpensive, discounted prices—making us the leading provider of high-quality discount fine wines online.

How It Works

Access to hundreds of wines one at a time

WTSO is proud to do business with hundreds of wineries and distributors online, and we are always looking for new brands to feature on our website. Each bottle that we offer is hand-picked with careful consideration of every aspect of the wine. Once we have chosen a wine that meets the standards that our members have come to expect, we queue it to be featured for sale in our online wine store.

The bottle will then become part of a flash wine sale, wherein we offer that specific bottle for a limited period of time or until it is gone. Due to the high quality and sometimes rare nature of the wines we offer, wine deals online can last as little as one or two hours before selling out.

Regardless of what kind of wine you buy, you can count on free shipping from WTSO with a minimum purchase of any of our wine deals. When you shop from us for discount wines online, we guarantee safe and secure wine distribution and mailing methods. So, that no matter the size of your order, you can rest assured your purchase will arrive fully intact and ready to enjoy.

Commitment to Quality

WTSO's wine selections guaranteed

A large part of what has made WTSO one of the world's most popular online wine stores retailers of wine is our unwavering commitment to the quality of the products that we sell.

Deciding which discount fine wines to feature in our shop is no simple task. As part of our company policy, we would never offer any brand or product that we would not happily drink ourselves. That's why we carefully deliberate over each bottle and select only products we truly feel are good enough to be featured for sale on our site.

It is this dedication to quality that keeps our members coming back to our online wine shop — week after week and bottle after bottle. With a strong emphasis on finding some of the most unique and sought-after wines available, WTSO's wine retailers guarantee that you will never be disappointed with the product you receive.

These inexpensive offers involve a themed group of wines that are grouped together by our team of experts specifically for your enjoyment.

Since the offer changes approximately once a month, you might find a bonus offer for sparkling wines one month, a group of sweet Italian white wines the next, and wines from a single vintage the month after that. Just like our ongoing current offer, these bonus wines are available to buy at discounted prices.
