THE ART OF COLLECTING FOR CONSUMING
WINE BUYING TIPS
We buy everything else online, so why not wine? Before you click “add to cart”, keep these things in mind:
Most online wine and liquor stores have wine clubs, sales, and free shipping offers–perfect for saving hundreds of dollars and expanding your options. Check for gift baskets, beautifully packed with hard-to-find items or things that could take you hours or days to put together.
You can even buy futures online. Futures, or en primeur, are wines that don’t exist yet but will.
Wineries let customers pay up front in order to offset debt, and those forward-thinking customers usually end up saving on wines that may hit the market at double or triple what they paid. Online futures sales have opened up the market, which in the past. was only available to a few.
