December 2012 Data Released on 01.15.2013
 
Wineries Continue to Enter Flash Market
Nearly four times as many wineries had wines offered through flash sites in December 2012 than in January 2011. The 382 unique, U.S. wineries with offers in December 2012 represented the highest monthly total since WinesVinesDATA first started tracking flash offers. Flash sites have continued to stay popular with wineries looking to clear out inventory quickly as well as take advantage of the sites' email lists of prospective customers.

In other flash news, Lot 18 announced it would lay off 25 employees and is shifting from being just a flash site to operating a wine club. A spokesman for the company said Lot 18’s current customers would continue to receive the same selection of wines, and the club would complement its flash offers. Lot 18 had once led the flash market by offers but has since slipped behind Invino and Wines Til Sold Out.

Cellar Angels announced a flat fee of $10 for all ground shipping, regardless of the size of wine order. Salon.com and The Wine Spies announced a partnership for an online wine store that will offer a wine picked by The Wine Spies every day.
