35% cashback @ boozebud (capped at $30) through Shopback. Stack with 15% off with Amex offer and also free shipping with $75 spend

Got a bottle of Vat1 2015 (JH97, GW95) for $41 delivered after 35% ShopBack and 15% AMEX cashback.

ShopBack tracked immediately and for the first time I received confirmation from AMEX for the 15% credit. Also seems like Boozebud has been added to Shop Small which is nice for some extra bonus points.

Finding it impossible to use the BWS website all night.
BWS issues seem to have been resolved. Last night it wouldn’t apply 10% off for 6. Couldn’t even use site at all at 6am this morning but worked fine at 9am.

10% off for 6, DYLAN code still working gave me another 5 Vat 47 Chardonnay at approx $28.

Do many people in here buy international wines? I'm really interested in buying some French wine! I've bought a bit of Italian, American but I really wanna get a taste and understanding of what wine I enjoy.

I assume many of you have really tried different varieties? Just seems difficult to find good international wine, priced well. I literally know nothing about French wine. Any websites, have decent deals?

Thanks in advance

Best advice I can give on this topic is to go along to various tastings if you can. That's the best way to learn. There are no shortage in Perth, so I'd imagine it's similar in other major cities.

As for well priced, that doesn't really exist if you're comparing the price you'll pay here to the price paid in France for the same wine. Shipping, WET, GST and generally paying more here don't help matters.

Another word of advice. Don't fall in love with Burgundy. That doesn't bode well with having money in your bank account :)

Codes no longer working for me.

These look solid, but I've spent $500 alone this week.

Definitely good to cellar, most the bottles are $250, $150, $250, $75, $45 etc
Weather their worth that, different story.

How's Bin 8, compare to Bin 28? Bin 28 seems to be highly rated.

Buying wine altogether is expensive. 😬

Any websites for international wines?

I agree with this. As far as I can tell you are in SA. I would recommend checking out some of the Ed Cellars in Mitcham tastings. The staff in their bottleshop are super friendly and helpful and will definitely guide you in making some purchases to start dabble in other wine regions.

Agree with the advice given above. One other key point is that when trying any new euro wines, be prepared to pay a bit more than you usually would to get a proper feel for them. I had a friend recently try to get into burgundy wines but was having bad experiences with the base level bourgogne rouge (Joseph Faiveley) and has basically written off french wines completely as a result. I said to him that would be like writing off European cars after only test driving an entry level VW polo or smartcar.

I would also add - prepare yourself mentally to pay a full freight and brace yourself for no cashback no discounts no secret codes no flybys no rewards points no stacking etc etc

Yeah, I understand.

See how we go, I actually have to calm down altogether. Definitely need to be more selective, I'm running out of room tbh.

You have much to learn about Burgundy pricing <insert evil laugh> :)

If indeed you're in Adelaide, check out East End Cellars and get on their mailing list. They frequently have tasting events.

As for buying online, a lot of websites already mentioned on this forum stock European wines. I'm a big fan of Eurecentric though.
