    This has been a very informative show, I often have trouble finding those special bottles and this seems like a great resource. It’s amazing the amount of choices they offer. I needed a 91 Calif Cab and they had plenty to pick from.

    I have used both the WineBid.com site as well as a peer to peer wine auction site (winecommune) and they both work great. WineBid is a little more reliable since they are managing the purchase process and handle shipping. Jim

    Charles I LOVE 91’s. You probably beat me to a bottle I wanted. No more 91’s for you!

    If you only have one bottle your options are somewhat limited. However, if you have a very rare bottle, anything is possible. Would you mind sharing information about the bottle you have? Producer? Bottle condition? etc.
