Wine.com and New Flash Sale Site Shipped over Two Million Bottles in the Last Year
San Francisco, CA – June 20, 2011 – Wine.com, the #1 online wine retailer, today is celebrating the one-year anniversary of WineShopper, its members-only flash sale site that offers exclusive wine deals in limited quantities for up to 72 hours. Wine.com together with WineShopper shipped over 2 million bottles in the last 12 months with over 1 million registered users across the franchise. WineShopper has featured such coveted brands as Veuve Clicquot, Chateau d’Yquem and Robert Mondavi.
“WineShopper is a sister site to Wine.com,” said Rich Bergsund, CEO of Wine.com. “Because we are a single buyer for both sites, WineShopper benefits by getting great deals from thousands of wineries we’ve worked with for over a decade. And since we do our own fulfillment, all of your wines arrive in one shipment, rather than one per winery like other online sites who don’t own the fulfillment. Since an adult signature is required for every delivery, that’s a big deal.”
To celebrate its one-year anniversary, WineShopper is offering a lineup of door-busting deals for the week including 70% off a Sonoma Reserve Cabernet and 50% off an iconic Brunello. Also there will be a week of giveaways marketed to fans and followers including an iPad 2 to the person who gets the most friends to register at WineShopper.com. For those who invite their friends, WineShopper is also offering a referral credit of $25.
