Ordering wine online for parties and gifts

Thursday, December 22, 2011

A couple of years ago I was looking for a way to order wine and have it delivered to a friends house in New York City. We were giving a dinner party together and I had agreed to provide the wine. When I started looking into wine shops in New York I was shocked at how expensive the wine would be as well as getting it to be delivered. I thought there had to be a better way. I wanted to be able to buy a case of nice wine.

As I continued to search on the internet I came across the website Wine.com. For a stewardship fee of just under $50 annually you can have any order, big or small shipped across the United States for free. Just sending one heavy case of wine would cost about half that amount. I thought it was worth trying it out. It worked out well!  The wines arrived on time, in good condition and when served they tasted great!

That order included:        

Decoy Zinfandel 2008

Pewsey Vale Eden Valley Riesling 2008

King Estate Vin Glace Pinot Gris (375ML half-bottle) 2007

They were all delicious wines and well paired with the meal. It was a great find.

I now order regularly for my home. I can't beat the convenience of having it delivered right to my home. And I can always find attractive wines at a great price. I also often send just a bottle of nice wine to friends and family in celebration of a birthday or other big event in someone's life. I am able to do this at a price well below any other gift I could send. And it seems it is also really appreciated! 

A great way to give a healthy gift of wine for yourself or another, wine.com! Ho! Ho! Ho!
