Last Bottle has a School House trio up for about $33 a bottle. I'm in.
I discovered last bottle during the marathon. It was moving so fast. AlI could do was click buy buy buy. Spent a couple hundred by the time it was over.

Hit Last Bottle and Somm Select fairly regularly, but Wine Access is probably my favorite.

I've wondered about the EE stuff. When I bought my case of SA wines, I stayed away from the EE stuff since it is linked to a celebrity. Unless this is in no way linked to the golfer.

I would love to hear more about how you guys evaluate and choose wines. I'm a relative newbie to wine. I mostly drank scotch and armagnac for years (and still do), but since I got into cooking a few years ago I've been trying to pick better wines.

I have about 250 bottle capacity storage - my dad passed me a fridge when he expanded into a larger build out, and I'm using about 55 of it. The vast majority of my current storage is Napa Cab and Bordeaux.

I have know idea when looking at tasting rankings which of these are actually more "trustworthy".

Also, anyone use Cellartracker? Are the values accurate or way low? Almost any time I compare community value to prices for sale, the prices for sale are far outside the com value.

Thanks!

I know it has been discussed here before, but my forum search skills are rather abysmal, what are some of the glasses mentioned here that weren't Riedel? @NJE66 has one in particular that is wider at the bottom.
Not as striking at NJE66s, but Costco has some similar ones.

Honestly I have stuck with online ordering for the most part and use various sites to curate my wine selection. I use Wine Access, Last Bottle and First bottle, Somm Select, and Full Pull Wines. There are a couple other stores that have daily type deals but I use these sites to see what pops up and try them. I tend to stick in the $20-$30 personally.
