Underground Cellar: new #wine marketplace, win a #winecation!

April 16, 2014 at 6:55 pm

As mentioned previously on these vinous epages, the Lady and I have happily ensconced ourselves back in the wine country of our roots.  Our move to #NapaMode has been just about as cool as anyone might ever dream…yes, living in one of the most beautiful places in the world, point zero for #wine & #foodie heaven definitely has its benefits, I won’t blathe.  One thing that we’ve come to learn in this fine place is that you can’t get anything DONE during the weekends, however!  Apparently, when one is surrounded by beautiful land to traverse by bike, foot, or DeLorean; wine to sip and food to savor, you just kinda want to do that every day that you’re not in the grind.  Huh…who’da thunk? 😉

That said…what if you were here on a vacation…that’s free…and filled with free food & wine activities? Why, a #winecation is just the antidote for getting your guilt-free glutton-on! The new wine marketplace Underground Cellar (FB, Tw) has you covered!

 Underground Cellar is a place where you, wine-lover extraordinaire, can find small batch, tiny artisanal and one-off lots of wines that are virtually impossible to find otherwise, or only at the winery. As you purchase more wines, you earn free upgrades that grant you access to even more highly allocated, über-premium wines, even from private collections.  They’re a sort of gamification of the wine shop world, if you will.

And right now, to celebrate their launch out of beta, you can win a freakin’ fantastic wine vacation, ahem, #winecation:

For the month of April, a grand prize winner receiving a Sonoma “Winecation” Getaway for four people, including airfare, dinners, VIP winemaker experiences, and a weekend stay at the luxurious Villa Terra Nova Wine Country Retreat in Sonoma, CA (valued at $6,500USD).  Additional prizes include over $3,000USD of gift cards for free wine (worth up to $200USD each). Full details are here.

So get your booty on over to Underground Cellar and get a look at their premier offerings and even cooler #giveaway during this month of April!  Cheers & good luck!
