Black Friday has become one of the biggest sales days of the year for retailers in both the UK and US, but it isn't just 64-inch plasma televisions on offer. Below, we take a look at some of the wine deals out there.
See below for who’s offering Black Friday wine deals in the UK and US.
Wines in the deals below bear no correlation to wines tasted independently by Decanter experts and appearing in our wine reviews section.
Black Friday wine deals in the UK
Waitrose is offering free Champagne to anyone who spends more than £100 at its online Waitrose Cellar store. It is also pushing offers of up to 20% off certain Rioja wines and up to a third off sparkling wine.
Majestic is also pushing Rioja, as well as New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. It’s offering a Black Friday wine special of 25% off wines in each category. However, the small print says that you have to buy at least six bottles to get the deal.
Some of you may remember that Majestic recently dropped its six bottle minimum purchase rule; but not for this offer, it seems. The retailer, which has not had the best of years so far, also says you can next day delivery if you order by 6pm.
Marks & Spencer – Decanter supermarket of the year 2016
Marks & Spencer, Decanter’s supermarket of the year 2016, is more low-key about the whole Black Friday jamboree, but it’s offering several ‘gifting weekend’ deals. This includes a ‘buy two and save 25%’ offer on cases of wine, and specifically Champagne and Prosecco.
Roberson – Decanter online retailer of the year 2016
Roberson is celebrating 25 years of life this week and is sticking to its North American inclinations to offer Bergström, Old Stones Chardonnay 2013 from Oregon’s Willamette Valley at 25% off.
Black Friday wine deals in the US
New York’s Sherry-Lehmann, soon to open in California, is entering into the spirit of Black Friday by offering ‘free shipping everywhere’, as long as you spend more than $250. The deal ends one minute short of midnight tonight (25 November).
Total Wine is offering around 20 different wines on its Black Friday deals page.
We can’t list them all here, but suffice to say that the US wine retailer is covering whole swathes of the wine world, from California to Médoc and Argentinian Malbec to Italy’s Brunello di Montalcino. The exact saving is not immediately clear, however.
Wine.com is also offering money off a whole raft of wines, although it isn’t tailoring this to Black Friday specifically.
Suffice to say, it is offering flat rate shipping at $5 and money off some top wines, including Stag’s Leap Cellars’ Artemis 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon and also Dom Pérignon 2006 in a limited edition gift box designed by Björk and Chris Cunningham.
