Getting A Great Online Wine Deal

By: Fiona Muller

We all like a good deal, but when buying wine if you are not a real connoisseur you can often feel a little dubious about some of the deals that you see online. This article will try and give you some ideas about how to get a great online wine deal without ending up with a case of wine that tastes like vinegar or a box of something that resembles Blue Nun.

There are some fabulous deals in the supermarkets – Tesco, Sainsbury and Morrissons have some great deals but also some rather suspect ones. There are those wines that have a label that you have seen everywhere and are invariably the ones 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 deals 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 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 deals – most of these also have a bit of a reputation to uphold so won’t sell the real dodgy wines. 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 prices on online wine deals. 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.

Winescout was set up by someone who is married to a man in the wine trade who was concerned that people were being conned by supermarket marketing on a daily basis.
