A Look at High-Priced Flash Offers
Flash websites have carved their niche in the wine market by offering discounts and not surprisingly nearly 60% of the domestic wines offered in the past 12 months were for less than $20 and 80% of the 5,252 domestic wines had a flash price of less than $30.

There is, however, a small selection of high-priced wines offered through flash websites. Wines Vines Analytics only tracks offers for domestic wines and the highest priced wines are almost exclusively from Napa Valley. In a recent flurry of high-priced flash offers in November, Invino appears to have made the most expensive flash offer recorded: a 1993 Screaming Eagle for $2,499. The wine was posted with a retail price of $4,425. On wine-searcher.com, the same wine had an average price of $3,674.

Number of Flash Offers for All Bottle Prices

In the past 12 months, Wines Vines Analytics spotted 98 flash offers for domestic wines with flash prices of $100 or more. Of these wines, 85 are from vineyards in Napa County and the rest are from Sonoma County, California’s Central Coast and one from Oregon’s Willamette Valley.

Many of these offers are for magnums or multiple bottles, yet several are for smaller 375 ml splits. Last Bottle Wines offered a 375 ml bottle of 2002 Chardonnay by Sine Qua Non winery for $178, which was a 49% discount off its retail price of $350.
