Welcome to this week’s wrap-up, where we look back at all the activity of the previous week.
First up, I was honored this week to be profiled at BusinessInsider.com:
Not sure what was so exclusive about this story (I guess because they were the only one who asked that makes it exclusive??) but it was still pretty cool. And I loved the tabloid-like headline.
This Week’s Deals:
Lot18 had one of their very short lived free shipping promos this week. They also offer a $10 credit to new sign-ups through this link, which meant if you were lucky enough to get in on the free shipping you could have picked up a bottle of Barbera and bottle of Nebbiolo for only $25 total. Follow The Reverse Wine Snob on Facebook and/or Twitter and I’ll let you know the next time I spot one of their free shipping deals.
This Week’s Discussions on The Reverse Wine Snob Facebook page:
The review of the Fuori Strada Off Road Sangiovese and Grillo Tetra Paks spurred a discussion on whether or not this type of packing affects your purchase decision? It appears that most readers were at least open to the idea. Leave your opinion on The Reverse Wine Snob Facebook page.
Next up was a discussion on how often you spend more than $20 on a bottle of wine. As expected, very few of you spend more than $20 on a regular basis. There were a fair number that crossed this barrier once or twice a month, and there was also a large contingent of diehard reverse wine snobs who swore to never spend more than $20. Got a different opinion? Leave it on The Reverse Wine Snob Facebook page.

Other noteworthy items:
Due to some rather unexpected, but exciting, news in The Reverse Wine Snob household my wife and I won’t be able to attend the Wine Bloggers Conference out in Oregon this year. (A bit of a bummer because it looks to be a great conference this year!) While I’ve found people to purchase our conference registrations, we still have two spots for the sold-out pre-conference Hood River trip if anyone is interested!
That’s it for this week, cheers!
