It is about time that the members-only flash sale has come to the most popular virtual source for vino. What Tablet Hotel’s private sales are to lodging, Wine.com’s has launched WineShopper.com will be the same for premium wines and champagnes: a place to buy the finest fermented elixirs at up to 70% off during a 72-hour window… or until they sell out. Wine.com’s offering joins other wine sales sites such as WineTwitsDeals and the joyously named WineWoot.

Standard procedure would be to register at the site to receive daily e-mails on sales, but you can also get Twitter notifications or find out the scoops on Facebook. Last we checked, a bottle of Veuve required just $29.99, and a Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cab set you back $49.99. WineShopper is even offering a gift of Riedel glasses if you recommend enough friends to the site, but be sure to think that through - your friends might just make the deal you were after sell out more quickly…

If summer isn’t your favorite season, escape it and hit Ski Portillo in Chile. Not only will you be reunited with snowy slopes, but from July 31 to August 7th, you’ll also get to experience the ski resort’s annual Wine Week. A different Chilean winemaker is on hand each weekday to present their vineyard’s offerings during après-ski, with representations from the San Antonio, Mapio, Colcagua, Apalta and Casablanca Valleys.

If you can’t make those dates, you can warm up for the North American ski season during Wine Fest, August 28th to September 4th. There’s no additional charge for either wine event, prices for the week (including accommodations, lodging, four meals a day and lift tickets run $990 to $1,590, in US dollars.

The Million Dollar Wine Cabinet

The Antique Wine Company has announced the completion of the next four in its series of nine architectural cabinets featuring the most celebrated Châteaux in Bordeaux. The collectors’ items were commissioned by The Antique Wine Company from LINLEY and feature Château d’Yquem, Château Haut-Brion, Château La Mission Haut-Brion and Château Petrus. This follows the Château Margaux architectural cabinet, the first of which was bought by the château itself.

The bespoke cabinets contain 18 bottles of wine, the finest vintages produced during the 20th and 21st centuries, with the Yquem model, shown above, accompanied by a complete vertical collection of Château d’Yquem spanning 141 consecutive vintages from 1868 to the latest current release. This ultimate collection also includes several letters and memorabilia retrieved from the Château archives during the Lur Saluces era and will be sold by The Antique Wine Company during September 2010 by private negotiation and expected to realize a value of over $1 million. The other châteaux are each priced at £149,000.

As Château Haut-Brion and La Mission Haut-Brion celebrate the 75th anniversary of the acquisition of Château Haut-Brion by Clarence Dillon, one of the Château Haut-Brion cabinets is being shown for the first time during Masterpiece London, which runs from through June 29. Others yet to be released by The Antique Wine Company in the series are: Château Mouton Rothschild, Château Lafite Rothschild, Château Latour and Château Cheval Blanc.

Glenora Pouch Wine

Wine packaging continues to evolve. We’ve seen more and more wines in boxes and cartons but Glenora Wine Cellars in Dundee, New York is debuting a wine in the AstraPouch pouch. The Trestle Creek Riesling is available in 1.5 liter AstraPouches. Like the wines, the pouches are made in New York.

The pouches provide similar advantages to the bag-in-box but without the box. A one-way spigot keeps oxygen out. The pouches have a modest transportation footprint and chill faster. The light weight also makes them a good option for picnics.
