Now it is not just the shops and supermarkets which present us with a dilemma when looking for a bottle of wine at a good price but without having to compromise on taste or quality, the internet too has become overrun with wine merchants and getting a good wine deal online is becoming more and more difficult.
The names are all there, and all their offers look like great wine deals but how can you tell if these wine deals are for real or if the companies are just trying to off load some dodgy left over stock onto its customers.
There are several tips that will help you navigate through the wine market without getting sucked in to bad deals and ending up with a Chablis that turns out to be a vinegary white wine or a red wine that claims to be full bodied and probably once was but those days are now numbered.
Most of the wine deals online are fair but they might not be the best deals available. First and foremost it depends on what sort of wine you like to drink. If you are a fan of mass produced wines with well known names then it is sometimes a good idea to search through the supermarket websites to see who is selling it at the cheapest price – however if you are the kind of person who likes to try something a little different and is more unsure as to who produces what you can find yourself buying something that isn’t what it says on the bottle. One of the options here is to go to an online wine retailer who will have tasting notes on their site which will give you an idea of what the wine will taste like. The only thing with this is that you still can’t be sure that you are getting the best possible wine deal that can be got on this wine.
If you have a favourite type of wine you are already narrowing your chances of being sold something that you don’t like – but always be wary of those deals that sound too good to be true – like all really cheap deals you are putting yourself in an area of risk. After all you wouldn’t buy jewellery from the high street thinking it is going be of the same quality as something from Tiffany’s so don’t think wine is any different.
One way to ensure that you are getting the best possible wine deal online is to go to winescout. This website looks at all the wine deals on offer, sieves out the dodgy ones and leaves you with the ones that are the real deal.
