    Buying wine

    Buying winesThe choice of wine available to the consumer has never been greater and nor have the methods of buying it One of the most pleasurable ways to buy wine is to visit the growers’ cellars and taste before you make your decision. For wines from further afield, there are specialist shippers, merchants and wine shops which can introduce you to the wines of the world. Tastings are becoming much more common in retail wine outlets, especially wine warehouses where you buy by the case.

    All merchants and wine stores will negotiate special deals for large orders, so it is always worth buying with a group of friends to get the maximum discounts, or you could consider setting up your own wine club. Most people buy their wine through normal retail outlets or wine clubs, but auctions can yield some great bargains and they are not as imposing as you might think - so long as you exercise self-discipline!
