A while back I wrote about some wine websites I was looking at
that I found helpful for either wine information, or that linked me
to great wines I might not be able to get here on the
Another one of those websites has been brought to my attention.
I received an email this week about a new website based in Seattle
that offers wine deals via the web. The site is LetsPour, and the idea behind it is
the people running the site work with wineries to select, in their
words, “amazing wines and offer them at incredible deals.”
The site also incorporates social media — you can log in with
your Facebook account — so that you can keep track of the wines you
like and rate and share them with other wine lovers (and your
friends on FB). From what I understand, you don’t have to buy the
wine from the site to rate or share it.
A nice feature about the site is, if you’re debating whether to
purchase a wine you can look at the bottom of the page where it
says “Who’s talking about this wine?” and see what other people
have to say about it. If you read someone’s review, it might better
help you decide if the wine has characteristics you like, or is one
you want to pass on.
I’ve clicked through and signed up, but I haven’t used this site
much yet so I can’t say one way or the other what I think yet. I
did however notice the wine deal of the day is for Washington
winery Kana and its white Rhone blend, which as
you all probably know by now is one of our favorite French wine
styles. It looks like they have a diverse offering of wines from
Washington and beyond.
It sounds like they’re trying to drum up publicity for the site
— hence why they emailed me about it — so if you sign up now you
get a promotional $25 credit that can be applied to purchases from
the site. Shipping of two or more bottles is also free during this
If you’re looking for the deals site, use this url:

And remember, I’m just passing along the information, this is
not an official endorsement of the site, but hey if I can help you
find good quality wine, I’m all about it.
