When Is The Best Time To Buy Quality Wines? During A Wine Sale, Of Course!
For wine aficionados, every time a wine shop goes on sale, it’s reason enough to celebrate. Buying during sale periods is the best time to stock up on your favorite labels, discover new wines without paying full price, and purchase wines in bulk as gifts or for entertaining. Wine lovers make sure to monitor when their favorite wine shops go on sale, and usually snap up the best deals by day one.
How do you know when a sale is about to happen? Since not all wine shops advertise, it’s best to get on their mailing lists, follow their Facebook or Instagram accounts, and drop by the shop every now and then. Being a regular customer or, even better, joining the wine shop’s membership club (if it has one), ensures you’ll know of the best deals even before the public does.
This week, Wine Depot is holding its annual Mid-Year Sale until June 8, 2018 with select wines for sale at discounts of 10% all the way up to 70% off. The wine store’s Toast Club members were treated to an exclusive Preview Sale the day before the sale went public—all the more reason to become a member!
At Wine Depot, among the choice wines to look out for is the Sanguine Inception Shiraz from Heathcote, Central Victoria, Australia. Its 2012 vintage was named among the ten Best Shiraz in the World at the 2017 Mainfreight World’s Greatest Syrah and Shiraz Challenge in Australia.
Another good bet is the Ogier Héritages range of wines from this hundred-year-old winery in the Côtes du Rhône, France. Or else check out the good value reds from E.Guigal, a well-established winery in the Côte-Rotie in southern France. Pick a bottle of The Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir from De Bortoli Winery in Yarra Valley, Australia.
