Anyone ever hear of it? Wonder if it has a reputation to date....looks like they hail from New Jersey.

They have good prices on Italian wines and Napa Cabs, but bordeaux... always just meh. Overall selection is okay, 2006 Insignia was $119.99 at some point in time. I've noticed them through wine-searcher from time to time, but never made a purchase there due to high shipping cost to west coast. That's all I know, hope it helped.

Thx Gundam.

Really curious if they are a trustworthy business as well.

They are. They're actually Canal's.

UltimateWineShop.com is the web presence of the Joe Canal's Discount Liquor Outlets of Lawrenceville and Woodbridge, New Jersey. We are located at 489 U.S. Route 1 South, Iselin, NJ 08830. We do not take orders over the phone but you can call us for any other support at 1-866-668-2800 and ask for the Ultimate Wine Shop

They have a sister site too. Also they always have a lot of free shipping wines and the prices are generally pretty decent. They're not a great store for higher-end stuff, but they're very convenient for things in the $14-25 range.

They're on my radar, as they carry a few mid-range things that I can no longer get here, but as Gundam mentioned, the cross country shipping kills the value.
