Most people wanting to purchase wine don’t usually think of the Internet as an option. They instantly think of local wine shops or grocery stores, according to NYTImes.com. There are many benefits to buying wine online though. You have a wider selection, more information, and many times, a better price. These reasons may make you jump for joy, but before you start order wine online, consider the following.

Check Your State Laws

While laws are changing quickly in regards to whether or not wine can be delivered to some states, there are still restrictions, according to the Wall Street Journal. Before you order wine, check with the merchant to ensure it will deliver to your state.

Check Reviews

With so many wine sellers online these days, it can be possible to find not-so-good ones. To ensure you end up with a bottle of wine you’ll love, research the merchant online first. You’ll likely find reviews from customers, so you know if they had a good experience with ordering, receiving, and drinking their wine.

Choose Insurance

Wine is fragile, so while the shipping method you choose will usually take good care of your package, sometimes mistakes happen. To ensure you are covered, choose to insure your wine purchase.

Pay Attention to Vintage

Reputable wine merchants online will tell you if vintage substitutes are used, but some will not. Check when ordering whether or not you are getting the vintage you desire.

Shop Around for the Lowest Price

Like anything you purchase, it’s always good to shop around to find the best price possible. Many times, if you buy box sets, you’ll be able to save quite a bit of money. It’s also important to check for discount codes, which can be used at checkout to save a percentage or dollar amount.

Now that you know what to consider when you order wine online, start shopping. You’ll likely be surprised by the selection, prices, and all of the information you’ll find that will help you make a well-informed decision.
