My Devils Lair Chardonnay order was open for 2 days but ended up being fulfilled.
Nice, possibly more apparant with pickup order staying open then... I didnt even get told at the store, I had to ask and was only then told, yeah no stock youl get refunded. For delivery orders they may actually put in some effort.

The Wine Collective Brand Survey

besides beginning online tastings, COVID-19 has additionally resulted in the National Wine Centre now allowing people to purchase direct from their extensive cellar, which includes wines from last century (free delivery with 12+ bottles) - their website list is outdated, but I have uploaded a current one here, though these are no longer available:
  • 2005 Charles Melton Grains of Paradise Shiraz Barossa Valley, SA $60
  • 2013 S.C Pannell Syrah Adelaide Hills, SA $45
  • 2015 Noon Winery Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Langhorne Creek, SA $45
  • 2016 Noon Winery Reserve Shiraz Langhorne Creek, SA $45
  • NV Sami-Odi Little Wine #8 Syrah Barossa Valley, SA $60

totally agree - only give minimal necessary truthful/correct information

have multiple email addresses and phone numbers, deliveries perhaps addressed to a post office, collection point service or workplace, and redirect to home when in transit

use different email addresses for email/personal, shopping, finance/PayPal/government

if providing account details for funds transfer/deposits, then use a one-way external-deposit-only-access account, that only allows withdrawals into a linked account

never store/save payment/financial details

...thats pretty scary running a few wine sites through blacklight. (ie. session monitoring, and capturing keystrokes) Big company owned sites seem pretty tame, but ones such as vinomofo and thewinecollective seem to be employing a lot of means

I've always felt that if something pops up related to past searches or indeed unasked for that is tantamount to someone installing a virus on your PC. Some websites get around that by not letting you in unless you accept their cookies. Even Cellardoor etc now have this new cookie management popup that makes you accept their terms to browse their website. Getting so you can't do anything without something monitoring your session. If I wasn't such a lover of wine I'd give up this internet thing....

Out of interest, what year was the vintage of your Merlot? My first order back in December 2020 had a mix of 2012 and 2014 loose bottles that came from WA. My recent order was all 2012 and came in flat winery boxes locally in Sydney
Mine was the 2012, came in the box from the winery (stored with bottles on their side). The cork was fine, the wine was fine :).

I ended up grabbing three of the Black Labels, there were none left Sunday morning. I asked the guy behind the counter about the Leeuwins, he said they had 14 but they were gone Friday morning as soon as it was reduced: "I got 6, the boss got 8...."

I would report the employee and store to LL head office to send a message... happens too often that the staff take all the good deals and us deal chasers miss out 😭. Generally they can’t reserve wines for themselves, hide them or buy them until after their shift finishes. Dodgy behaviour.

I’m guessing it wasn’t their shift in this case - quick phone call to a friend...

still on google, just no stock anywhere. Dan’s wouldn’t price match because of the 10km rule...

Seriously ? I don’t see anything wrong with the staffs taking advantage of good deals.
I don’t work in a shop but I find it great that people who do can get some advantages from it. I don’t think that they have a great pay so what is wrong with that?
Reporting them? That is the dodgy behaviour for me

Imagine a hypothetical situation where there are a finite number of sale items. This is advertised to the public, causing masses flock to the store. However, upon arrival, none are available, as the stores' employees have "taken advantage of it".

Would this not be akin to false advertising? As from the perspective of the consumer, no stock was actually available to them.

The idea of employee perks should not interfere or diminish consumer experience. Any competent manager would not allow staff to clear a product that is in high demand, as it's just bad business practice.

Happens all the time. Head office should crack down on it but it all comes down to the corporate culture.

To be fair, some of these have been removed from website so no longer advertised but it does affect their reputation with customers. Whether employees are underpaid is a separate matter entirely.
 
Vinomofo is the best wine deals site on the planet. Good wines, real people and epic deals, without all the bowties and bs.
