Hello Snooth!

Posted by ColeTucker, Nov 3, 2014.

Looking for a Le Grand Pinot Noir. I live in Raleigh NC and the total wine here does not carry it.

I guess my post wasn't clear. I am looking for a place to get that wine in the Raleigh, NC area. Total Wine does not carry it.

I think your post was very clear. I steered you to the site that lists all 138 retailers in the country offering that wine who also have an online presence. Save's you the gas of driving all over Raleigh but maybe you own a gas station?

Unfortunately that link gives me the same information I got when I googled the same description of the wine and does not list any retailors in Wake/Durham County but thanks anyway.

Click, order, ship, enjoy. Nothing wrong with e-commerce unless you have to have it today. Just sayin'

Well, OT, as an individual who orders his share of wine on-line, I have to agree with you on the convenience.  However, when you look at a $10 wine like Cole is seeking, shipping costs can really jack up the per bottle price.  So, I can certainly understand why Cole is looking for a local retailer.

On the other hand, though, Cole, there are so many wines available to sell, there is no guarantee that any given wine will be available in your local retail stores no matter where you are.  With luck there is somebody in your area who reads this question, is familiar with that wine, knows where to get it and takes the initiative to respond.  

I did notice from the wine-searcher site that OT linked that there are Total Wine stores that do seem to carry it.  Is it possible that you can work with the manager of your local store and arrange some sort of inter-store transfer?

Good luck.

In the meantime have there been any other Pinot Noirs--from France or elsewhere--that you have enjoyed and might be able to use as a substitute?

Hi Cole -- It looks like you can get wines by this producer at Harris Teeter. Take a look: http://grocery.harristeeter.com/pd/Le-Grande/Pinot-Noir/25-40-fl-oz/084279975054/

Just a quick question for anyone, or more appropriately, the Snooth site developers...

When will there be a Snooth app for Android?

i would love to carry my wines around with me in a Snooth app, but can only access them by visiting the Snooth website, which is just cumbersome, instead of just opening an app.

Any estimates for a development time or if there will be one?

You can also avoid shipping costs with many vendors by ordering more than a half dozen bottles at once--either same or mixed. Some vendors also give you case discounts on top of the free shipping. Worth looking around.

As someone who helped build the e-commerce infrastructure in my professional life, it always surprises me that people don't take more advantage of online vendors. I also enjoy brick-and-mortar shops but when life is busy and the local shops don't carry what you want... duh!

 

And Puhnner, looks like you'll need to switch to an iPhone for now, if you want that Snooth app. You could always keep your android and get an iPad...  ;-)

Cole, are there any Cost+ World Market Stores in your neighborhood?  I was in one (in AZ) last Thursday and saw that Le Grand PN.
