Who is the Fool? [Moved from Manhattan board]

I just got an email from Oriel wines selling half price cases? Is this an April Fools joke or the real thing? I have no reason to believe it wouldn't be true but its an awesome offer off of ANY case. Has anyone else seen this?

This is the offer...you tell me if its true.

50% off a full case of ANY wine for 24 hours!

Our delicious Barona was picked as a favorite, included in the 'Dow Jones Albariño Index' and described as: "an Albariño of substance. Layers of tastes — earthy, luscious and fruity. Peaches, key limes and oranges, but with some restraint.
Good with pork."

Thank you Ms. Gaiter and Mr. Brecher – we are bowled over...!

To celebrate, we are offering 50% off FULL CASE orders of
ANY wine ordered between now and close of business on
Tuesday April 1st.

Simply enter promotion code WSJ08 at checkout.

i thought it was crazy but wanted to check before I ordered, because it seemed like a great deal.

      I went to orielwines.com to tease myself (I live in PA, can't get shipping). You just type in the promo code and it will reflect the 50% off at checkout.

        We've checked this out- it's not an April Fool's joke.
