Anything can be purchased online nowadays, and if you’re a wine lover, you’ll be happy to know that statement includes wine now as well. Many people don’t realize that buying wine online is, in fact, legal.
This hesitation is probably because of some of the strict liquor laws that exist throughout Canada. However, it is true, wine can be purchased through the internet legally. And why not? There are so many reasons why it is a better way to shop for wine.
1. More options and more information
Stores only have what they have, but the internet can open you up to a whole new world of options. Don’t stick with your same boring brand, explore, try something new, branch out. Unlike in the store, online wine shopping provides customers with a detailed description of the wine and a list of reviews that can give you a bunch more information about whether or not it is going to be something you like.
It is a huge benefit having access to real testimonials, because these people have nothing to lose or gain by telling their opinion, which means you are getting the truth. The wine description will also tell you what the wine goes well with, along with a ton of other detailed information abut it.
All of the wine’s information – location, description, region, etc. – is readily available on the website in an organized and consistent format so that you can easily find something you know you will like.
2. Never run out
Getting low? Hop online and send in another order. It takes only as long as you want it to – whether you want to spend some time scrolling through the different kinds, or reorder the same thing you had last time in under a minute. Delivery doesn’t take long, so you never have to plan your orders too far ahead.
Also, make the order whenever you think of it. No more trying to rush to the store before it closes for the night, or trying to fit it in with all of your other errands.
3. Mix and match
Online wine carriers often provide mix-and-match options and packages, unlike regular stores that just sell everything individually. In the end, this can help you save money while trying out a variety of different wines.
Customers can create their own cartons of six wines, which can contain any mixture of up to six different varieties, an excellent option for wine connoisseurs and aficionados. Online wine carriers also sell wines individually by the bottle or by the case.
4. Sit back and relax
No more hauling wine back and forth. It is heavy and you risk dropping it and breaking the bottle. Having it delivered provides a safety net – if the bottle comes broken it can be returned and you will be sent another one.
If you break the bottle bringing it home from the store, that’s tough luck for you. All of your wine will appear at your door and all you have to do is bring it in and put it in the wine cooler… and then drink it, of course.
5. Good wine
Online wine sellers are not like your neighborhood grocery store or liquor store that stock every wine under the sun. These websites are looking to provide wine drinkers with a quality selection of wines in a variety of flavours, from a variety of regions.
That is to say, these websites are stocked with good quality wines that provide wine drinkers with a good experience every time. Sure, you may find a wine that just isn’t your thing, but what you won’t find is cheap, low quality wine.
