A guide to buying wine cases

Wine has been a part of humanity for at least 60 million years. One of the first written accounts of viticulture appeared in the Old Testament of the Bible. Wine was first discovered by accident. It was the ancient Egyptians who began to experiment with the grapes and their cultivation to improve the quality of the wine. The practice of wine cultivation and the drinking of wine continued through the ages. Read this article to learn more about wines cases.

Learn the wine

Buying wine is enjoyable, but learning about the wine first is going to help you. Attend wine tastings at wine shops, restaurants or vineyards. When at restaurants, ask the sommelier to recommend wines that would best compliment your meal as well as each course. In this way, you'll become educated about the different wines as well as what you like.

At the vineyard

Attend a wine tasting at a vineyard. This is the best way to learn about wines available in the area in which you are visiting, whether it's Bordeaux or the Finger Lakes in upstate New York. With the information you've learned at the restaurants, you will be able to ask about wines that are in the same category as what you like (claret, Shiraz, Rieseling, etc). After the wine tasting, ask the people at the vineyard about the discounts available when buying cases of wines. You may find that the cost of the wine tasting is absorbed in the price of the wine case and that there will be a discount above the price of the case. Ask questions. Since the vineyards make much of their money from visitors attending wine tastings, the people who work there may be willing to work with you as a first step in a continuing relationship with you. Ask about the price of cases of wine delivered. There may be a discount for the case of wine purchased in this manner.

At the wine store

Ask the proprietor about discounts for buying cases. There may be sales in the store that may be able to be added to the discount. Some wine stores may be connected with a warehouse, so they will be able to give discounts without taking too much out of the store's profit.
