The days there are hundreds of stores where you can get hold of a wide selection of delicious wines from all around the world, and whether you prefer red, white sparkling or rose, there are some very affordable choices that are prefect for night in front of the TV, a dinner party or even just to accompany your evening deal. So how to you go about choosing which store to buy your wine from, and how do you make sure that you are getting the best deals?
Know The Wine You Are Buying
When you buy wine online, it is not really the best time to be experimenting with new flavours that you are not familiar with. If you end up with something that you do not like, you will not be able to return it once you have opened it. If you want to try out new wines it is better to go to a tasting session where you can try out lots of different ones in order to pick your favourite, and then when you are sure that you like a particular wine you can go online and hunt it down for their best price.
Some of the most well known wine store right now are laithwaites.co.uk, winedirect.co.uk, virginwines.co.uk and buygreatwine.co.uk and searching for the same bottle at each of these stores is the best way to make sure you are not paying more than you should.
Monthly Wine Clubs
Wine Clubs are not a new thing although they have evolved and with the Internet it is easier than ever to sign up to one and receive a collection of different wines to try out each month. The Guardian have a particularly popular club and the beauty of it is that you get all of the information about each wine and you get to try out things that you would not normally have considered. Although the price is not as low as if you bought your wine individually, if it id convenience that you are looking for then clubs are a good option.
Get Money Off With Vouchers
Most wine retailers let you get money off occasionally by using voucher codes. It can be anything from 5% up to 50% depending on the time of year and the promotion that they are running, so if you want to be savvy then get searching got those codes. Amongst the best sites to find the on are HotUKDeals, VoucherCodes.com and new voucher website Fliggo.com.
Supermarkets Are Sometimes Best
Although the selection of wine in supermarkets tends not to be as comprehensive as in a dedicated wine store, you can still pick up some very nice wines in Tesco, Asda, Waitrose and even the cheaper supermarkets. It doesn’t pay to be snobby, so make sure that you shop around for the best deals where ever you can.
