12-on-21: Best Wines, Best Prices, FREE Shipping on Cases, Today Only!

The easiest online wine buying starts now and lasts all day. Happens this time each month because at B-21 we consider every 21st a birthday of sorts. And we’re giving you the gift: Free shipping across the U.S. and terrific deals on top rated wines! Just place your order online today in increments of 12 wines (in stock only, preorders and futures don’t qualify!), and you’re all set! Order must ship immediately to qualify.

We only ship online orders in cases for free on the 21st, so your order has to add up to 12 bottles (or 24, and so on… you can figure it out!). Pick any wines on our website. Mix and match, or buy a solid case of a favorite.

To make it faster, check out this month’s quick picks: my latest discoveries and the best values in the house. Click any or all of them or browse through your favorite corner of B-21 inventory – or any of the 5,000 selections at your disposal.

Order 12, 24, 144…. We’ll start packing your order right away and it’ll be out with FedEx tomorrow.
