Buying Wine Online
With the advent of the Internet, most things can be purchased online, with wine being no different. Today, thousands of wine enthusiasts are able to purchase their favourite wines online and save a lot of money in the process. However, this also presents another advantage, as wines that are considered to be rare in one area or country can now be easily purchased, and in most cases, delivered to your door. Remember being in Tuscany a few summers ago and sipping a beautiful red wine? If you have spent years trying unsuccessfully to find it in your own country at your local wine retailer, why not try to find the wine online? Chances are good that you will not only find it, but will be able to purchase a bottle of it (or even a case!) for a lot cheaper than you may think! If you use the internet, you'll find that whether you want to buy a $10 bottle of wine, or a $1000 bottle, it can be easily done online!
Advantages to Buying Wine Online
1) Inventory - Although your local retailer of wines will have a large selection, buying wine online gives you a much bigger inventory. The reason for this is that many vineyards around the world have realised that the internet allows them to sell wine directly to everyone in the world, not just people of their country. If you don't want to search through a certain vineyard, there are numerous websites setup that specialise in finding wines from all over the world and can point you in the right direction for whatever you may be looking for. Or, they can sell the wine directly to you. Most often, it will be a lot cheaper than purchasing it from a local wine shop, as there will likely be no inventory or overhead. Therefore, the savings can be passed on to you!
2) Affordability - As alluded to above, because local retailers generally have ongoing costs such as maintaining a shop, they must make a substantial profit on selling wine, which means the costs can be considerably higher for you. If you purchase wines online directly for the supplier or vineyard, their only expense is the cost of shipping it to you, which may most likely still be cheaper than going to your local shop to purchase it.
3) Convenience - Buying wine online can not only be cheaper, but it can also be a lot more convenient. How many times have you needed to purchase your favourite Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon only to find the only wine retailer close to you is out of stock, but you need it for tonight's dinner party? Although the internet doesn't off instant delivery, you can at least know if your favourite red wine or white wine is available from your online supplier. Also, as part of this convenience, most online providers offer scheduled delivery. By setting this up, you can be assured that the right amount of your favourite wine is delivered to your door every week, month or whatever time period you specify, and most often at a considerably cheaper price as well. How's *that* for convenience
