Buying Wine Online? Here Are Some Helpful Tips


If you’re new to buying wine online, you’ve come to the right place. Wine is a luxury that’s meant for enjoyment and relaxation and much of the buying experience is a personal choice that can be challenging to grasp through online shopping. However, buying wine online comes with many benefits and can be an excellent inclusion in your journey to find the perfect bottle of wine for you.

As a liquor store in Calgary with a passion for wine-searching around the globe, we know a thing or two about how to order wine online. Here are some helpful tips to get you started.

Benefits of buying wine online

E-commerce has undoubtedly opened us up to more options for buying products worldwide, and wine is no different. When you buy wine online, you can enjoy:
  • A wider selection - Online wine shopping gives you access to a wider range of unique, rare, and hard-to-find wines from different wineries around the globe. You can find special products that you wouldn’t find otherwise in big-box liquor stores. Ordering wine online can be an exciting part of the experience of trying out as many different wines as possible.
  • Convenience - A big part of online shopping is the convenience. You can order wine online and receive it right on your doorstep without having to drive through traffic, search for a parking spot, and carry heavy bottles of wine up your driveway and steps. This frees up more time for you to prep a steak dinner to go along with your glass of red.
  • Sending wine as a gift - Have a loved one in a different city? Want to say happy birthday to a wine-loving friend miles away? You can order wine online and have it delivered to someone else’s doorstep. A bonus - you don’t have to foot the cost of shipping it yourself.

Tips for buying wine online

While wine delivery in Calgary is a safe process, you want to ensure you receive quality products and that your bottle arrives at your door undamaged. Something to keep in mind is that most, if not all, delivery companies require an adult signature upon delivery. Be sure you or another adult is at home when your wine is scheduled to arrive. When you buy wine online:
  • Buy from a trusted and credible source - Like most products you can buy online, some companies take advantage of the popularity of wine. They may promise unique, original, and quality products but the bottle that’s delivered to you does not match the description or is a cheap item that was priced much higher than it should have been. Make sure to do your research and be cautious about online wine stores.
  • Read reviews of bottles - Of course, when you buy a wine bottle online that you’ve never tried before, there’s a risk that you might not like the taste. Thankfully, there are plenty of reviews and more information online for most bottles. Read through forums, blogs, and product reviews to get a good idea of the taste and experience before you buy.
  • Look for deals - Another advantage of buying wine online is that many companies offer online-exclusive deals and packages. Look for special Holiday deals, seasonal sales, free shipping deals, and cost-savings with bundles.
