TravelzooTravelzoo has a deal for WI residents: for $29 get six bottles of wine delivered to your home! The wine is Virgin Wines from Richard Branson’s Virgin brand which launched in the U.S. this past year.

You can choose a case of all red, all white, or a mix of red and white wines. All three options are valued up to $94.

According to the Travelzoo website, the cases are broken down as follows:

The red case features:

  • Vina Ecoyen Reserva (Spain)
  • Tierra del Corazon Reserva Carmenere Maipo (Chile)
  • Fondatore Domizio Barbaresco (Italy)
  • Les Arbousiers Coteaux du Languedoc (France)
  • Chateau de l’Abbaye Bordeaux Superieur (France)
  • Massivo Nero d’Avola (Sicily)

The white case includes:

  • Alta Tierra Sauvignon Blanc (Chile)
  • Oratoire de Millegrand Viognier (France)
  • VWS Tangent Pinot Blanc (California)
  • Mayacamas Ridge Vineyard Selection Chardonnay (California)
  • Crowded Hour Clare Riesling (Australia)
  • D’Aria Pinot Grigio (Italy)

The mixed case includes the Reserva, Barbaresco and Carmenere from the red case and the Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Grigio from the white case.

The wine is delivered to your door. The catch is you have to pay state tax plus $19.99 for shipping. So really, you’re getting six bottles of wine for $48.99 (plus tax). That comes out to just over $8 a bottle–still a great deal (assuming the wine is good).

This deal is available for the next seven days and vouchers can be redeemed August 30 through September 29, 2011.

Water Park of AmericaTravelzoo has a $149 a night hotel package for the Radisson Hotel Bloomington by Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota. This price includes a King Deluxe room that sleeps four to six people, four water park passes to Water Park of America (on site), and a $10 credit to Trillium Spa (on site).

This price is valid for the following 2011 dates: May 26-29; June 1-16, 19-23, 26-30; July 1-6; August 21-31; and September 1.

The Radisson offers a complimentary shuttle service to the Mall of America, a fitness center, free morning newspapers, and free parking. You will have access to three on site restaurants: Split Rock Grille, Sleepy Eye Café (coffee and light snacks in the lobby), and Camp Many Point (in the water park).

The Water Park of America offers a wave pool, raft rides, slides, an arcade, and lots more.

Check out the Travelzoo site for complete details. This is listed as a top 20 deal and will sell out quickly (according to Travelzoo).

NOTE: Travelzoo lists this deal as regularly priced at $349, but after checking out the Radisson website directly, I found that could get a Deluxe King room with four water park passes for about $219-229. This price would not include a $10 spa credit. Regardless, you’ll still save $70-80 by going through Travelzoo. Also, I did not enter each date option to compare prices. I know the rates will vary based your reservation date. I’m thinking the $349 should have been listed as $249. I contacted Travelzoo to find out, and I will update this post if I get more information.
