Vintage Cellars - Free Beer - 24*330ml König Pilsener

Posted By: ninkasi, posted 2010/05/19 23:51
OK - you *will* have to buy something to get the free beer. A number of specials on this month at Vintage Cellars where if you buy specific bottles of wine you will get a cellar share.

For example, buy three bottles of Grant Burge Blanc de Blanc Brut NV for $18.99 each (normally $27.13 but cheaper if bought as part of a dozen), or if you get a dozen bottles of Chandon Brut NV for $19.99 each, you will get a cellar share. Or buy a dozen bottles of Leo Buring Eden Valley Riesling at $14.99 per bottle and get a share.

You can use the share for $25 off future purchases, or redeem it from a selected group of products. Currently an option is to redeem one share for a case of König Pilsener (24 * 330ml bottles) worth $39.99 - a decent enough German beer.

Drawback? Well, you might not get the share in time to get the beer deal but you can still use the share to get something like a Petaluma riesling... or just hold onto it until a better deal crops up....

    Cellar share kid of being credit with them? How long does the 'share' take to get?

    They mail the share out - basically it's a voucher. No guarantee how long it might take to arrive, but last time it came out with the following monthly flyer so it *might* arrive in time for the beer deal, but you'd have to be quick.... I think they've had the beer or similar deals before so if you miss this one you can always just hang on to the share and wait for something that appeals to turn up... They are valid for at least a year.

    Ninkasi is there a min spend needed to receive the voucher or you just 'buy something'?
  • ninkasi2010/05/20 07:45:45
    There are specific bottles and numbers you need to get - all detailed in the newsletter you can get in the store (or is mailed to you once you join - which you can do there & is free). Personally I'd suggest the Chandon fizz or Leo Buring Eden Valley Riesling (good wines & competitive prices) but there are a number of other wines available with the "free cellar share" deal this month.... The Grant Burge fizz is probably the cheapest way of getting a share (under $57 for 3, if you get 9 cleanskins at the same time) but I haven't tasted it so don't know how good it is....

    So, to get a share this month you need to get:
    12 bottles of Brookland Valley Verse 1 Margaret River Semillon Sav Blanc @$12.99/bottle
    6 bottles of Shingleback McLaren Vale Shiraz Viognier 2007 @$13.99/bottle
    12 bottles of Katnook Founder's Block Coonawarra Cab Sauv 2007 @$14.99/bottle
    6 bottles of Pol Roger NV @$58.99/bottle
    12 bottles of Leo Buring Clare Valley Riesling 2008 @$14.99/bottle
    12 bottles of Leo Buring Eden Valley Riesling 2008 @$14.99/bottle
    3 bottles of Grant Burge Blanc de Blancs Brut NV @$18.99/bottle
    12 bottles of Vasse Felix Margaret River Chardonnay 2008 @$18.99/bottle
    12 bottles of Stonleigh Sauv Blanc 2009 @$13.99/bottle
    12 bottles of Chandon Brut NV @$19.99/bottle
    12 bottles of Leeuwin Margaret River Chardonnay 2008 @$24.99/bottle

    As far as I know, there are no limits ie if you buy two dozen bottles of the Leo Buring you'll get two shares....

    They also have a decent deal where if you buy a dozen of some selected wines like d'Arenberg Footbolt Shiraz @$13.99/bottle you get a twin pack of Riedel glasses worth $50.

    Oh, and you get one point for every dollar you spend. When you hit 500 points, you get a cellar share. And if you provide your email address when signing up, you get 250 points....
  • ninkasi2010/05/20 21:34:34
    For what it's worth I'll probably get:

    6 of the shingleback or a dozen of the Leo Buring Eden Valley Riesling
    12 of the Chandon (thinking about having a christmas in July party!), and maybe
    3 bottles of Grant Burge Blanc de Blancs Brut NV (haven't tried it before, but $10.66 per bottle after taking into account the $25 share makes for a fairly inexpensive barbecue fizz).

    So all up should get three shares.....
  • ninkasi2010/05/21 19:29:21
    So bought the Shingleback. Not bad, but more tannic than I expected. Needs a few years to it. Didn't get the Chandon as it was the same price as Dan's even after the cellar share *and* at dans you only had to buy six.

    Don't see 250 bonus points anywhere on their website do you have a link by any chance?

    Can't see it either, but was mentioned in an A3 advert/flyer that came in the mail.....
  • ninkasi2010/05/25 21:52:26
    Cracked open a bottle of the Grant Burge Blanc de Blancs Brut NV tonight, and actually it was pretty good. The effervescence was a little low (which could have been bottle variation), but flavour/bouquet etc was good. For a similar price I'd probably still go for the Chandon NV, but definitely a bargain (at $10.67/bottle after taking into account the $25 cellar share). Am going to go back and get some more....
  • ninkasi2010/05/27 23:19:02
    Bought a dozen of the Grant Burge - and three were drunk tonight (wife had a pack of friends around for mass tupperware/massage/nails/bags/etc....) - and a number of people commented on how good it was. I hid upstairs most of the time and drank some König Pilsener (I had a cellar share and used it to get some). The beer was better than last time I had it - and it was pretty good then - so both are definitely recommended.
