Fine Wine For Everyone
Nothing is more important than quality. It’s what’s in the bottle that counts.
At Slingshot, our singular goal is to bring you a great bottle of Napa Valley wine at a reasonable price. We’re not interested in perplexing you. Wine is about enjoying the experience.
Our attitude borders on irreverent. Slingshot is about putting your best foot forward while forgetting about fitting into the mold or following the rules. Be bold, be adventurous, choose your own path, and above all remember to have fun.
That’s what we aim for with every bottle of Slingshot. Great wine for sticking up for the little guy; even better for relaxing with friends.

@rmm989@Vyntage I’m wondering about this exact point. If I remember correctly, earlier slingshot vintages were closer to $20/bottle (maybe $18? I’m not going to go spelunking in my w.w order history to find out) this being half of that raised my eyebrow Spock-style. Certainly didn’t stop me from ordering a case, I’ve always been a fan of Slingshot. Great QPR.
This is the first I have seen of the different shipping options. Is it spelled out somewhere what exactly the new option is? How expedited and if I do not choose that option is there a good chance my wine arrives cooked? Never had that problem with Woot but a little nervous now.
@scott0210@winer Overall, likely not much; the kiddies are still there.
Gourmet, otoh, just looking at the comments and limited sales stats, has to be dramatic.
Unless there is Cavdoni, Beehive, Candy Basket or …
The Welingtons of of Gourmet.
@winedavid49 Quick shipping question. In general, I am fine with the standard shipping but had a question regarding the two day shipping. When would the anticipated arrival be for this offering with two day shipping? I ask because I am interested in this but the standard shipping has arrival between June 21 - June 25 and I will be out of town starting the 24th . . . Thanks!
This came today, and I opened a bottle. It’s a nice full bodied wine with good fruit and a little tannin to make it interesting, and at the case price per bottle has a good QPR. Very drinkable, better than an earlier vintage I’d gotten on wine.woot. I’m glad I ordered a case.
