Holiday Wine Deals

The month of November has now arrived which is exciting as the holidays are around the corner.  This is the time for family gatherings, good food, gift giving and naturally good wine. Even though the next eight weeks can be a bit hectic it always feels like the pressure of everyday life relaxes a little, the year winds down and we begin to look forward to a new year and what it may bring. I also look forward to the winery specials that are offered as the holiday season begins, and this year looks like it may be good for the consumer. I have recently received holiday offers for wine at sale prices as well as reduced or even free shipping. The economy has hit all of us hard and I am sure that includes our favorite wineries. I don’t mind paying for wine I love including whatever the shipping costs in order to get it to my door, but it is nice to get a break now and then, even if that break is a side effect of a bad economy. I would imagine that the discounts are a result of a drop in sales wineries may have experienced and while I don’t get any satisfaction gaining from another’s misfortune, I do think wine prices have skyrocketed a bit. Maybe this will bring them back to a more reasonable price range, possibly a positive of the bad economy will be stabilized prices.  Regardless, I will continue to support my favorite wineries and purchase the wine no matter what kind of offers I receive.  However, if you are looking to purchase a great gift, start shopping the wine deals now in order to have them shipped and wrapped up in time for your favorite holiday gift giving season.
