How do you buy wine? Anyone who likes wine usually has a bottle or three in the house at any given time. This way they can have a glass whenever they feel like it, with meals or on its own; as a celebration or when they have guests over. Keeping a variety on hand saves that last minute rush to the shops to get something suitable for your occasion or for the meal you’ve created.
There are pros and cons to buying online and locally.
- Many people source their wine from the bottle shop nearest them for convenience, especially when it is part of their favourite supermarket chain.
- You can make friends with the sales attendant and they will be likely to tell you when sales are due, or recommend their best wines.
- You can wander around the shop and learn a lot by looking at the labels.
- A lot of people like the personal attention of the attendant to help them purchase the right wine.
