Buying Wine

Buying Wine

by Wendy VanHatten

Have you ever walked into a wine shop and felt lost? Maybe there were too many bottles, or you weren’t sure what you should buy, or you weren’t sure if the wine you picked up was a good price. Next time that happens…

Talk to the clerk…

This is especially true if this is a wine shop. Some supermarkets will also have a person who understands wine.

Return that bad bottle…

I’m sure it’s happened to you. There’s just something not right with the bottle of wine. So, it becomes drain cleaner and you feel like you’ve just wasted good money. Well, return it. A good wine shop will care about the fact that you thought

Price isn’t everything…

It’s great when you find a great wine at a great price. But, that doesn’t happen every time. That’s another reason to visit with the clerk.

It doesn’t have to have a cork to be good…

Some people think a screw cap means lesser quality wine. Not so. Many winemakers of high regard use screw caps to keep the wine from cork taint.

Try to avoid buying wine at the last minute…

Sure, this situation can be unavoidable. When you have more time, you’ll probably buy better wine. You’re not in a hurry and you may actually have time to visit with the clerk.

Ask about a discount…

Many wine shops and supermarkets give discounts on a case or a half case. It never hurts to ask.
