Which wine flash sale site has the best deals and the best selection?

We're often asked which web site has the best wine deals. Recently, industry insider Wines & Vines compiled this interesting analysis on the major flash-sale sites — such as Cinderella, Wine.Woot, Lot 18 and Wines Til Sold Out — to determine which offers the biggest discounts on wine.

But who has the best selection? We spent a week watching each of these sites and the deals they offered. Based on the total number of offers during the seven days and the quality of each (which we assessed using our knowledge of the regions, brands and vintages), as well as the actual discount, here's what we found: Wines Til Sold Out takes the cake. Here's why:

Far and away, WTSO offers more deals than any other site — sometimes as many as five in a day. And assuming an unlimited wine budget, we'd have bought nearly half of WTSO's 28 offers, which included everything from high-end Bordeaux (Cos d'Estournel and Château Pavie) to Brunello di Montalcino to Central Otago Pinot Noir to enough Napa Cabernet to tar a road.

By contrast, Cinderella had 10 offers and Lot 18 had eight. Between the two, we'd have bought four of Cinderella's wines, and just three of Lot 18's. Wine.Woot had just one offer in five total that excited us.

Keep in mind, however, that the best deal scouting is done across all flash-sale sites, not just one. (And refer back to our past tips on discount wine shopping).

But we want to know: Which do you think is the best site for discount wine deals? Share your experiences with us below.


How to Make the Best Steamed Clams

Small, sweet clams are cooked in a butter, garlic, white wine and cream to create the best sauce for sourdough bread dipping.

I was a waitress for years. My first waitressing job was when I was 15 years old at my best friend’s family restaurant, Sandy’s Fine Foods in Ogden, UT. They made the most amazing homemade pies. I learned a lot from that job, and it was my first foray into realizing I could make more than just a standard hourly wage.

Making tips on top of an hourly wage got me hooked on waiting tables.

Waitressing was also my side job through college. My mad money. I was lucky that my parents had planned ahead and saved for my college fund so I didn’t have to.

After college graduation, I worked two waitressing jobs to save money to go to Europe with my best friend. That was the summer my eu de parfum was the scent of grease and fried fish with the subtle scent of maple syrup while working at Salt Lake City’s premier seafood restaurant of it’s time, the Market Street Grill for breakfast and lunch, and then heading up Emigration Canyon to the historic Ruth’s Diner to work the dinner shift.

It was hard work. With long days and late nights and then right back up at the crack of dawn to choose which men’s tie I’d wear with my blue button down oxford that still smelled like last night’s halibut feast.

Working two jobs, all day every day for some people is the norm. I know not everyone has the opportunity to work just to save for a trip. Or for a shoe shopping habit or their ski pass. Or even to put themselves through college. Instead they’re working two and three jobs to pay for simply living their life.

I didn’t end up going to Europe that summer. I kept waitressing for another year or so before I moved into my you-better-use-that-college-degree-for-something career.

Sure, college set me up for that career, but waitressing and the relationships I formed while I was ladling clam chowder and keeping orders straight in my head taught me just as much as the school of life, if not more.

Waiting on tables made me appreciate people, those we serve and those that serve us. It gave me the fortitude to do the hard work that goes into reaching goals and making achievements. It made me who I am today. And for that, I will always be grateful.

Two byproducts of my time at Market Street Grill are: 1) I met my husband, and 2) We adopted several of their recipes that have now become our own. Our renditions of their famous clam chowder and their stuffed pasilla peppers will always be faves at our house.

But these Steamed Clams…oh, these clams.

About the recipe

At the restaurant this dish was made with cockles, a smaller, soft shelled clam that tastes a bit sweeter than traditional clams. When we lived in Venice Beach, CA, coming across cockles was a lot easier than it is here in Utah. So when we do discover them, we snatch them up as fast as we can and that is what is for dinner tonight.

An important part of making clams or cockles is to be sure to pick through for any half open clams before cooking, and to rinse them thoroughly. Clams are bottom dwellers, living rooted in sand and they get their nourishment from sucking in itty bitties of water and sand along with it. Thus, they have a tendency to be sandy or gritty if not rinsed well. To rinse, place your clams in a bowl of cold water for about 30 minutes. During that time, the clams will siphon in the fresh water and spit out the sand.

If you can’t find true cockles, look for the smallest clams you can find for the most tender bite, such as littlenecks.

The broth for these clams is my absolute, don’t you dare get in my dipping space, favorite part. And everyone else’s too. Crusty slices of real sourdough bread are as essential to this dish as the clams themselves, because the broth is truly that good.

To start, garlic and green onion are sautéed in butter and then the clams are added in to release their juices as they cook. But it’s the addition of wine and chicken broth (or water and bouillon) that creates the perfect base for this broth.

The final step is to remove the clams and broth from the heat and gently fold in a final pat of butter, plus half and half or cream. Adding the cream OFF the heat ensures the cream will not break or separate.

If you’re looking for more of a dinner idea, adding fettuccine or linguine with a shaving of Parmesan cheese would be a delicious idea.

I learned a lot from that job, and it was my first foray into realizing I could make more than just a standard hourly wage.

Making tips on top of an hourly wage got me hooked on waiting tables.

Waitressing was also my side job through college. My mad money. I was lucky that my parents had planned ahead and saved for my college fund so I didn’t have to.

After college graduation, I worked two waitressing jobs to save money to go to Europe with my best friend. That was the summer my eu de parfum was the scent of grease and fried fish with the subtle scent of maple syrup while working at Salt Lake City’s premier seafood restaurant of it’s time, the Market Street Grill for breakfast and lunch, and then heading up Emigration Canyon to the historic Ruth’s Diner to work the dinner shift.

It was hard work. With long days and late nights and then right back up at the crack of dawn to choose which men’s tie I’d wear with my blue button down oxford that still smelled like last night’s halibut feast.

Working two jobs, all day every day for some people is the norm. I know not everyone has the opportunity to work just to save for a trip. Or for a shoe shopping habit or their ski pass. Or even to put themselves through college. Instead they’re working two and three jobs to pay for simply living their life.

I didn’t end up going to Europe that summer. I kept waitressing for another year or so before I moved into my you-better-use-that-college-degree-for-something career.

Sure, college set me up for that career, but waitressing and the relationships I formed while I was ladling clam chowder and keeping orders straight in my head taught me just as much as the school of life, if not more.

Waiting on tables made me appreciate people, those we serve and those that serve us. It gave me the fortitude to do the hard work that goes into reaching goals and making achievements. It made me who I am today. And for that, I will always be grateful.

Two byproducts of my time at Market Street Grill are: 1) I met my husband, and 2) We adopted several of their recipes that have now become our own. Our renditions of their famous clam chowder and their stuffed pasilla peppers will always be faves at our house.

But these Steamed Clams…oh, these clams.

About the recipe

At the restaurant this dish was made with cockles, a smaller, soft shelled clam that tastes a bit sweeter than traditional clams. When we lived in Venice Beach, CA, coming across cockles was a lot easier than it is here in Utah. So when we do discover them, we snatch them up as fast as we can and that is what is for dinner tonight.

An important part of making clams or cockles is to be sure to pick through for any half open clams before cooking, and to rinse them thoroughly. Clams are bottom dwellers, living rooted in sand and they get their nourishment from sucking in itty bitties of water and sand along with it. Thus, they have a tendency to be sandy or gritty if not rinsed well. To rinse, place your clams in a bowl of cold water for about 30 minutes. During that time, the clams will siphon in the fresh water and spit out the sand.

If you can’t find true cockles, look for the smallest clams you can find for the most tender bite, such as littlenecks.

The broth for these clams is my absolute, don’t you dare get in my dipping space, favorite part. And everyone else’s too. Crusty slices of real sourdough bread are as essential to this dish as the clams themselves, because the broth is truly that good.

To start, garlic and green onion are sautéed in butter and then the clams are added in to release their juices as they cook. But it’s the addition of wine and chicken broth (or water and bouillon) that creates the perfect base for this broth.

The final step is to remove the clams and broth from the heat and gently fold in a final pat of butter, plus half and half or cream. Adding the cream OFF the heat ensures the cream will not break or separate.

If you’re looking for more of a dinner idea, adding fettuccine or linguine with a shaving of Parmesan cheese would be a delicious idea.

  1. Tamas

    Well done, this idea is just about

  2. Zulkimuro

    I confirm. All of the above is true. Let's discuss this issue.

  3. Voodoorn

    Laughing is not a sin, but admitting it while reading such information at least surprised me! :))

  4. El-Saraya

    By and large, I agree with you. It just seems to some that they definitely need something to stand out from the crowd. And how to stand out is no longer important.

  5. Alvin

    Thanks to Afur for the helpful post. I read it in full and learned a lot of value for myself.

  6. Halig

    And do you understand?
