At this time of year everyone is out for a great deal, the January sales always seem like a good bet for a bargain but what about wine? When buying wine if you are not a real expert you can often feel a little suspect about some of the wine offers that you see online. This article will try and give you some ideas about how to benefit from some of the great wine offers that you see online without ending up with something that tastes really bad – after all if you wanted a white wine vinegar you would order one not a case of Chablis.
There are some fantastic wine offers in the supermarkets – However it is often the case that these might not be quite the great deal that the y look like. There are those wines that have a label that you have seen everywhere and you know that you don’t like them (these are the ones that are often given out at private views or other occasions when you know that you must avoid the white wine at all costs) and there are those wines that are left at the end of a party when the only person who wants a drink is so drunk that they can’t actually taste what they are drinking. Or there are those wine offers which look like a great idea but when you get them home they taste nothing like they are described as being. One good thing to do is to compare some of the wines on offer at the supermarkets – if they are cheaper at one then the others that could be a good buy – but remember something is only a good buy if it is something that you like. A good way to get round this is to find out when the wine offer is on until and buy a bottle to try at home before you invest in a whole case of the stuff. This way at least you will know if you like it before you spend a considerable sum in stocking your home with it.
Then there are the online wine retailers. They are all competing for your business and offer some great wine offers – most of these also have a bit of a reputation to uphold so won’t sell the real dodgy wines, but they are prone to using some fancy language in their marketing which can really confuse you and could convince you to buy a wine that you really don’t like. The other thing with these organisations is that they often have mixed cases for sale which can end up being a bit of a con as you can end up with 6 bottles you like and 6 that you are not so sure of. However they will still have marketing initiatives though so it is worth checking them all out before making a wine purchase.
If you find all this shopping around tedious though there is now a site that could change the way that you buy your wine. Winescout is a great way to compare the market and get the best wine offers available on the market. Winescout compares the wine market and flags up all the wines that are great value regardless of the price – so you can have wines at £3.99 and £30.00 recommended at the same time.
