PORTLAND, OREGON March 31, 2011 -- itsyBiD ( announced today that they are now the first “penny auction” site to offer winery gift certificates.  

“ is a penny auction site that offers hotel & resort packages, plus spa, airline, and cruise ship gift certificates. With our auctions, you pay a small fee for each placed bid. Our winning bidders are currently enjoying average discounts of 85% off of retail” said Graham Keavney, CEO of itsyBiD. “The itsyBiD brand is growing fast, and we want to offer even more lifestyle options.  We view winery gift certificates as an important step toward making your one-stop auction house.”

“In order to bring the best wineries to our site, we recently added Keith Hoffman as our Head of Wine Auctions. He publishes and is very active in the wine community.  It’s a perfect fit for itsyBiD.”

“I have been trying to figure out how to offer my readers an affordable way to enjoy the best of the hundreds of wines I’m lucky enough to taste each year”, said Hoffman. “Some innovative groups are offering 20-30% wine discounts, and while that is very attractive, I wanted to develop a way to get huge discounts (of the type I’d never seen in the wine world to-date). In short, I wanted to: 1) get my readers access to phenomenal deals, and 2) bring more attention to the wineries that I believe are making outstanding wines.

“Last fall, I happened to join an itsyBiD auction, and, after using just a few bids, I won a $500 certificate to the Napa River Inn for $2.98” added Hoffman. “After I landed back in my chair, I was hooked, and I saw the potential for offering winery gift certificates via itsyBiD.  Accordingly, my role is to identify exceptional wineries to bring to auction.”


itsyBiD launched in September of 2010 as the first penny auction website focusing on Travel, Leisure, and Lifestyle segments.  itsyBiD is based in Portland, Oregon.
