The monthly totals of flash offers stayed below the previous year from January through September 2013, when that trend reversed and offer counts stayed up through the end of the year. Invino led the surge in offers with 244 in December, which is more than double the 90 offers by Wired For Wine and 84 offers by Last Call Wines, which had the second-highest offer counts.

Flash Methodology

Wines Vines Analytics’ research team captures flash offer details for hundreds of domestic wine offers each week. The team monitors offers presented through 17 flash reseller sites every day of the year. Each offer is reviewed and tied to the source winery, and the specific details are recorded in a database of flash offers.

When flash websites hold special events with a high number of offers, Wines Vines Analytics monitors the site closely, often capturing a new offer every few minutes. At the close of each month, the offers are reviewed for accuracy, and the findings are reported by Wines & Vines’ editorial staff for the current month along with time-series comparisons of pricing, winery size and wine types.
