Velvet Palate is a new and unique wine sale website that offers limited quantity, handcrafted wines from small-production winemakers, allowing its customers access to many hard to find wines. Sign up for their free membership to receive significant savings on online sales that last anywhere from four to six days and would make an optimal gift for anyone on your holiday list.

Velvet Palate offers select sales in the 'cellar,' which lengthens their availability on the website for up to two weeks, giving members an extra chance to take advantage of sales. The site also offers gift packages that feature four or five wines, each with a theme such as sparkling, international, organic, and more and range from $55 to $150. There are also free shipping opportunities each month with no minimum purchase requirement, so be on the lookout for those offers!

Another great feature of this website is their virtual sommelier that can give customers wine recommendations within 24 hours via e-mail, but that might not even be necessary, since they have thourough descriptions of each wine, including food pairing suggestions. Feel free to participate in their membership questionnaire for wine offers and recipes tailored specifically to your tastes.

Amp up your purchase with some gourmet South American chocolate from La Maison Richart, which pairs perfectly with wine. Not sure whether white or red strikes your loved one's fancy? Opt for a gift card that can be printed out immediately for you last minute gifters!

Additionally, Velvet Palate is offering Joonbug readers an exclusive 15% discount when you place your first order through Dec. 31st using the coupon code 'Joonb.'
