7 Online Wine Shops to Check out in 2018

I think you'll agree with me when I say:

There have been too many online wine shops closing their [virtual] doors over the past couple years (R.I.P. AmazonWine & WineCommune).

So in today's post I thought I would share with you some of my top picks for e-commerce wine stores going into 2018.

Wine

To start off the list of online shops, the founders invented Wine.com to modernize the way people learn about and buy wine through robust wine information, easy to use discovery tools, and no-kidding customer service. 

What’s not to love about the classic wine.com?

Vinfolio

Vinfolio features exquisite wines from both the Americas and Europe.  My favorite part of the site is the daily offers tab that eases my indecisiveness. 

Taking it a step further, they also offer a cellar service. . . shaping the art of collecting into a fine tuned science.

Wine Library

No online wine shop list would be complete without @Garyee’s WineLibrary site, and my favorite part is he actually reviews a handful of wines.  Then there’s their Library Pass membership which gets you free shipping on all your orders! 

I can't emphasize this enough:

I feel so much better about those monthly wine shipments. . . 

WineBid

Look:

Ebay for wine sales is my best description of this site. There are deals to be made on the auctions, but if you can’t wait (or are pissed that “Sandy outbid you”), there’s always the Buy Now function.

Sometimes I wish I could people watch those auctions when they’re going live, though maybe a time-lapse video would be needed. . . 

Twenty Twenty Wine Merchants

The sheer volume of wines available makes them an easy pick for this list, but I absolutely love that they added spirits and gifts to their shop. 

But that's not all. . .

The best part is the separate page displaying the Wine Spectator Top 100 list each year. . . which great because I'm always looking to try something new.

Shop Wine Direct

Impressively, this shop is independently owned that has been in business for over 30 years! 

My favorite part is they offer single serving wines... great for Sunday Funday on the go!

Vinomofo

Their mission: “UNITE A TRIBE WITH OUR LOVE OF WINE, AND FOOD, AND THIS ADVENTURE CALLED LIFE.”. . . what’s not to love about that? 

They only sell wines they are absolutely in love with… needless to say customers come first for them; it’s not all about sales.  The only sad part is they’re not yet available in the Unites States, but it looks like it is on the roadmap!

    Great List! I’ll definitely visit these stores. I know one more store Precision Wine Co. It produces Wines from the famous Napa Valleys from California. The quality is great and it is available at affordable prices. You can take a look at it at https://www.precisionwineco.com/. It will be a great addition in your list.

    If you’re the type of person that likes to have a glass of wine with dinner, or when you’re hanging out with friends, or any time at all, you want to know what it’s all about, right? You want to know if it’s good for you, bad for you or some form of indifferent, and one of the ways you may judge that is by how many carbs in wine are there. You may have heard that wine is low-carb, but there’s a big difference between low-carb and no-carb. So what does it mean?
