What to look for when buying wine

By: Fiona Muller

Sometimes it can be really difficult to decide which wine to buy. You want something that you know is going to taste nice and something that you could serve at any occasion with the complete confidence that everyone will enjoy it.

Some companies have a place where you can taste wine before you buy, which is a fantastic way to make the right decision every time, however not everyone is able to visit such places. So what is the solution to the age old problem of buying a wine that tastes great, doesn’t break the bank and will be perfect every time when you want to serve it to your guests?

Buying wine online is a great way to know more about the product before you buy it. Companies have websites that allow you to read about the wine before you buy. They offer comparisons to other wines which put your wine in context and allow you to try brands that you would not normally buy. And of course there is a larger choice of wine online than there is in any supermarket.

One of the best things about buying wine online can also be one of the scariest too. You get to buy things from smaller wine producers. Quite often you will have never seen the wine label before or heard of the wine producer. This is because, unlike the supermarkets, the online companies are independent and can therefore negotiate deals with much smaller wine producers, allowing you more choice and the chance to take a risk by buying something new. They have all of your favourite brands too so whatever your taste in wine, you will find something at an online wine retailer to suit your palate. What’s more, because they have fewer overheads, the prices of the wine on sale are often better value than those on the high street making it an even more attractive way of buying wine.

The risk is not immense because all the wines are described in detail. There are notes on how it tastes, what it would go well with and what temperature it should be drunk at. Comparisons to other wines are included to ensure that the wine you are choosing will be to your liking.
