Until cellars are stocked with bottles of wine, they are only good for hiding boxes of half-written screenplays and keeping lonely pipes company. Fill the subterranean space with today’s Groupon from Barclay’s Wine, an online shop that delivers directly to homes and offices. Choose between the following options:
- For $97, you get 6 bottles of wine (up to a $194.66 value).
- For $169, you get 12 bottles of wine (up to a $378.36 value).
With both of today’s options, Groupon holders can select from one of the following:
* Radford Dale Red—a combination of three different red wines
* Radford Dale White—a combination of three different white wines
* Radford Dale Mixed—a combination of six different red/white wines
* Chateau Franc Cardinal Vertical—a combination of 3 different vintages.
Whether they’re a certified oenophile or attempting to shed their Welch’s training wheels, Barclay’s Wine’s customer-friendly site helps visitors see, swirl, and sniff out sophisticated sippables that pair well with any palate. The virtual-bottle boutique’s impressive selection is sorted into groupings based on grapes and verticals—wines from the same vineyard but with different vintages. Each singular bottle offered with this deal is unique and not offered anywhere else on the site. Stockpile your cellar with multiple mouth pleasers by snagging crisp whites such as the spicy-sweet Radford Dale chenin blanc or the fruity apricot-and-peach tinged Radford Dale viognier to enjoy while whittling holes into a block of swiss cheese on the porch. Alternatively, indulge in a series of complex reds, such as an elegant, garnet-hued Chateau Franc cardinal bourdeaux or an earthy, peppery Radford Dale shiraz-viognier, both well suited for washing down hearty plates of pasta or beef-colored crayons.

Offering vintages from a host of regions and styles, Barclays Wine breaks down the borders that separate winemakers from customers through home delivery of the world's top varietals. A staff of well-traveled oenophiles traverses the globe, distilling knowledge about superior vintages and the individuals who make them into an online database searchable by style, varietal, region, winery, or price range. Thorough online descriptions accompany each wine, revealing flavor notes, the growing conditions of the grapes, and anecdotes from the elderly raisins that helped to raise them, and many bottles are sold for less than $20.
The site's team of behind-the-scenes wine guys prides itself on providing an outlet for producers to share their stories, philosophies, and experiences, as well as a resource that tasters can peruse to learn about each bottle they buy.
