Lately I've been seeing a lot of interesting wine deals online from different online-only wine sellers. My wine budget is a bit limited- I'm not going to be dropping $50 on a bottle of wine anytime soon. But many of the sites I've been watching lately are offering prices that are up to 50% off retail and sometimes they throw in free or discounted shipping as well. The upside, beside the price, is that they also offer wines I can't find in my local wine shops. The downsides are that I can't try the wines and there's a risk of wine getting damaged or cooked during shipping. I'm curious if anyone else buys wine online and if so, from where and what your experience was like. I've ordered once so far from Lot18 (affiliate link), and the wine (some New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc) arrived intact despite the 90+F FL heat. I'm thinking of pulling the trigger again on some Argentinean wine.
