Smart Tips for Party Wine Buying

1. Buy by the case

- Finding good wine and then socking away a case of it (typically 12 bottles) saves money, as we offer case discounts of 10 to 15 percent. It also saves trips to the store.

2. Look for wine screw caps

- More and more excellent wines are being sealed with screw caps to prevent corkiness (a problem with natural corks that produces a wet cardboard-like smell in a small percentage of wines). Screw-capped wines are especially handy for large parties, because they’re easy to open quickly.

3. Select food-friendly wines

- Big party meals tend to involve multiple side dishes or a large selection of appetizers, which puts a lot of competing flavors on the table. Well-balanced wines that aren’t too extreme (not wildly sweet, not wildly tannic, etc.) are the most versatile when it comes to pairing. Good choices include American Rhone-style blends, Spanish red blends, Italian red & white blends and dry Rieslings from Germany or Washington.

4. Pick affordable sparkling wines

- Celebratory alternatives to pricey Champagne include cava from Spain, sparkling wines from France & the US, as well as Prosecco from Italy.

5. Use terrific $12-and-under wines for punch

- Seek out inexpensive wines that would be equally delicious in a bowl of punch or on their own. There are wonderful $12-and-under bottles available these days, particularly from Spain and South America.
