Tips For Choosing An Inexpensive Bottle From Your Local Wine Shop

It can be nice to have a glass of wine or two with dinner, and a bottle makes a nice hostess gift when you go to someone’s house. However, it can be hard to decide just which bottle to buy, especially when you’re on a budget. Nobody wants to give a bottle of wine away or serve one that doesn’t taste good. There are some tips that can help make this sometimes difficult task a bit easier the next time you visit your local Wine Shop.

Wine Source

It’s possible to purchase good but inexpensive wines if you choose those from the right locations. For example, opt for Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile for a red wine, Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand for a white wine, the sparkling Cava from Spain, Malbec from Argentina and Riesling and the white Shiraz from Australia. This may yield better results than simply choosing something on sale or a California or table wine. Sale wine is often on sale for a reason.

Get Professional Advice

Check out the wine buying guides and magazines for the recommendations of professionals who taste lots of wines each year. They often have lists of value wines that aren’t too expensive. Keep these lists handy for when you go to the Wine Shop. When in doubt about what wine to pair with something, a rose wine often works. Another option for choosing the right wine is to consider an app. Yes, there’s even an app for that.

Packaging Considerations

For wine for your own home, check out box wines. Many of these are actually quite good, and because the manufacturer doesn’t have to spend as much on packaging, they can charge less per glass.

Bulk Discounts

Check with the wine seller to see if they offer a discount for purchasing multiple bottles. Sometimes it’s possible to get this type of discount even when purchasing a case with a variety of different wines instead of all one wine. This can help cut down the cost quite a bit for those who drink wine regularly.
