I've had access for years, never bought anything. It's all subjective I think. Used to be known as Australian Vintage Staff Wine Sales.

Yep that's the one. I've bought from them a few times. Every so often there will be a heavily discounted deal but yeah it's subjective if it's a good deal.

Honestly I've been mainly giving it away as gifts or bringing it to people's houses for dinner, since people know the brand and the bottles look nice. I actually quite like their short-list series though

I tried to post this in the Dan Murphy section, couldn't see how to!
Good deal which is winery direct.
Last year the 6 pack was 2017 Readhead. Delivery is free with 2 dozen ordered

<mod: merged with Dan Murphy thread>
The packs were 2017 Head Red and 2016 Brunette. 6 Pack sold out, 12 Pack still on line and in keeping with the 2017 Barossa vintage, more like a cool climate Syrah, savoury and peppery, red plums. Medium bodied, gentle tannins, medium length. For $12.50 a bottle, worth a nod.

So update on my order. Rang VC tonight, out of stock of the haselgroves. They tried to cancel the whole order but I said if they had the gsm in my order set aside then still send that. Was told they would do so but who bloody knows. Really annoys me as I know of a number of friends who ordered well after me and they're currently sipping their order! I should charge a bottles finders fee...

I'm guessing if I didn't call they would have eventually just cancelled everything so if anyone is still waiting on their order I suggest you follow it up and salvage what you can.

There is nothing to be achieved by calling except them trying to cancel. My order email said "Standard - Estimated order delivery by the 9th Jul". Sit tight & wait. If it happens, it happens.

Anyone had delivery of the Haselgrove Protector Cab? Have only seen reports of Catkin Shiraz deliveries
Had mine delivered today
Aptly named “protector” to safeguard your prized wines when the unwanted guests show up
As a connoisseur of $3.80 cellarmaster wines these are my prized wines

I think that is the best approach. I am in the same boat but not calling them. Let them sweat a little.

I suspect that if @PlaneCrazy hadn't called VC probably would have cancelled their order. If you don't get the shipping notice from AusPost within 1-2 business days it's a good sign something fishy is going on.

Just like whenever I click and collect on a good deal in store I know if they haven't picked it within an hour I'm probably not getting my order.

Last month's $5 champagne is an exception to that: I ordered 12 bottles in the morning and after lunch still no sms so I called the store and the guy tells me they're out of stock. Ok fair enough I know they can't keep track of a simple thing like the number of bottles in their store reliably and it was a crazy price so what can you do. Then I get the regular sms the next day telling me my order is ready to collect. I call back to make sure it's not a mistake (that has happened to me before as well and I don't want to drive 50 min round trip to come home empty handed) and I swear I speak to the same guy who says "yeah we have it here come get it" so obviously bullshitted me on the phone the day before

Anyone else (in VIC) have trouble trying to buy the 6 for $99 deals at Dan's? Can add the items to cart but seemingly always "not available for delivery (or pick up)" irrespective of store location and delivery address.

Yes, happened to me. Just load them up in your cart and keep trying. Eventually it may or may not work and it will let you buy them. It is to do with a glitchy outdated Dan Murphy system I think

Thanks for this tip Olympicwiz
Tried it last night and managed to sneak through an order with the Known Pleasures, Mv3A and Hares Chase.
Now to sit and wait and see what actually shows up 😬🤞

Hares Chase was $16.9 through UW, and Langton's had it for $15 a bottle.
