Why shop online? Ordering your wine online not only affords you greater choice, it’s sometimes the only choice. For example, wineries may offer exclusive selections to the members of their wine clubs or certain retailers in states that allow direct importing may have wines you can’t find anywhere else in the country. On the other hand, those same states that allow retailers to direct import wines are also the source of the best prices in the nation, since they have effectively skipped the three-tier systems that see profit margins added at the import, distribution, and retail levels.
