Beautiful packaging on these wine gift sets. Much nicer than the typical basket from the cheese and meat vendors who try to do wine as well. Will be giving these at corporate gifts this year.

Great idea! For those who want to give the gift of a sampling from their wine region but can't swing the cost of multiple bottles, this makes perfect sense!

Avoid! I've had nothing but bad experiences with them, especially with regard to their samplers and Super Flights. They have gone downhill FAST!
