I found the banner ad at blackboardeats.com (a nice site for restaurant discounts if you're in a metropolis). You can find the link at the top of the page here: http://www.blackboardeats.com/†
Not as hot as the scorching previous voucher offer†but it's still a good deal if you need to stock up for the holidays. You get a "$50" savings voucher to use on a $51 bundle of wine and have to pay $9.99 for shipping and your state's tax (provided your state allows for liquor delivery).† My total paid was $11.96 in NY.
The Nakedwines site is a bit wonky so have patience†and be careful submitting your order (be sure to†check†the total being charged when checking out and review your†confirmation e-mail).† Also beware of becoming an angel unless you're a big time wine†drinker. Cheers! †
I'm already a wino so I mas as well be an angel too. Awesome deal, thank you.
Edit: Their website is very misleading. I became an "angel" unknowingly before I had a chance to look over their prices and selection. Already wrote them an email asking them to cancel my membership. Interestingly, I tried to log in to my account and the email/password does not work. I tried to use the "forgot my password" link, and it claims that no account is registered to my email, despite having already received emails from them in regards to my order and "membership". Sketchy.†

Here is their response to my cancellation request:
I did verify that you are an Angel with us.
This is an explanation of who we are and what we do and an offer for a risk free trial and some money from us to you towards wine.
As you are probably aware our customers save 40%-60% off their orders every time they order with us.
We are a customer funded winery, we invest into independent winemakers and in return we get preferential pricing that we pass on to our customers through our ?Angels? concept. On top of the 40-60% off, Angels also get free bottles once a month.
How it works is really simple, once a month all of our customers set aside a little of their own money, normally $40.00 towards a future purchase so you can order wine whenever you want.
It's not a club, it's not a membership fee. It's your money to spend on wine. So, you go online to place your order, and you just use the money that you have already set aside to buy your wine.
The great thing is that there is never any obligation or commitment to buy so if you stop for any reason and you have money in your account, we just refund it to you.
If you'd like to give Angels a try we would like to offer to place this months contribution of $40.00 into your account for you and then you'd be able to go back online and see that you have $40.00 to spend on wine with Angel Pricing.
Like I said before, there is absolutely no risk. You can take advantage of the $40 and if you're still not happy you can cancel and get all of your money back at any point.
When I clicked the banner, I was offered the Customer Favorites Pack. After reading reviews, I preferred the Legendary Customer Favorites Pack. It was easy to modify my order. I think the OP is mistaken about how the discount works. I was able to select bottles a la carte, and although that is not the most cost-effective way to utilize this discount, it simply takes $50 off the total.
Thank you for sharing this deal, OP. EDIT: After ordering, I clicked "no thanks" to the Angels offer and got this message:
"No problem. We've popped $40 in your account anyway...
Because we'd love to hear what you think of the wines."
We did one of these and got 6 decent bottles of red for like $16 after tax and shipping (plus the extra $40 in our account). They push the angel thing, but the company seems very legit. It seems to work like Community Supported Agriculture, where you're basically investing money to help farmers (in this case wineries) produce their product without having to worry about marketing, advertising, sales, etc. Not an angel at this point, but thinking about it. I'm hoping they offer me another cool deal.
I took advantage of their last promo ($50 cert) and after ordering I received the $40 credit for future purchases. The $40 was in my account but I then applied this new $50 deal and it looks like the $50 wiped out my $40 credit so now I only have $50 to spend. I thought it would add the $50 to my $40 credit....dammit!!
