Whilst lockdown restrictions are being lifted gradually each week, we still can’t socialise wherever and with whomever we want for the time being, so many of us affected by the lockdown restrictions are making the most of being stuck at home. Everyone looks forward to the weekend, but with the social distancing restrictions, we can’t head to our favourite bars, pubs and clubs just yet. Luckily for us, there’s lots of fab online retailers offering an amazing selection of drinks and snacks, allowing us to have our weekly indulgence in the comfort of our own home.
How To Get A Good Deal When Purchasing Wine Online
When it comes to purchasing wines, it can be a little overwhelming when ordering online. In supermarkets, you typically have markings on shelves to indicate the countries wines originate from. However, retailers like Independent Wine make it a little easier for us with their in-depth and helpful wine guides.
Barolo is a popular red wine which varies massively in price, especially when purchasing online. Independent Wine have created a what is the right price for Barolo article, which shares some insightful information to make deciding on a wine a little easier. Did you know that the price of a bottle of Barolo can differ from £16 to £260? Well they’ve analysed prices of over a hundred vintages from various suppliers selling their stock in the UK to find out what’s reasonable.
Discount Codes / Cashback
Seeing as prices can vary so much when purchasing wine, I’d recommend looking for any discount codes that might be available. Some retailers (all retailers) can offer a discount code when you subscribe to their newsletter, but you can also look for any cashback deals that might be available.
Another tip for how to get a good deal when purchasing wine online, is checking for quantity discounts. In the supermarkets, you can sometimes find deals when you purchase six bottles or more, and that could be an option when shopping online too.
Look For Awards
There are many different wine awards, and retailers like Independent Wine share which awards each wine have won on their website. If a wine has won say a ‘gold’ Decanter World Wine Award, like the Francone Barbaresco DOCG 2016, you know it’s a high quality wine and that it’s worth its price tag.
I hope you found these tips for how to get a good deal when purchasing wine online useful, and they’ll help you make good choices when purchasing wines.
