I’d like to share with you an article I recently wrote for 12most.com.
If you are not familiar with the 12most concept it’s a group of writers who share their articles in the format of lists and every list has 12 items. I’ve written nine 12most articles since last fall, so I’ve become accustom to formulating my thoughts into lists of 12. Since one of my favorite items comes packaged in boxes of 12, it only seemed appropriate that I write an article about buying wine by the case!
While searching for an appropriate image for this post, I asked my artist friend Leanne Laine for a suggestion. Her selection is “Inevitable.” She explains by saying “because it’s inevitable that you’re going to buy more wine anyway!” I hope you enjoy it!
12 Most Cheaper by the Dozen Reasons to Buy Wine by the Case
As a seasoned wine consumer and shopaholic; here are 12 reasons why you need to buy your wines by the case.
Most every retailer will offer a discount if you purchase wine by the case. Do your wallet a favor, buy a case and save some money!
Not sure you want 12 bottles of the same wine? Mix up the case with a variety of bottles, and you’ll still get the discount!
Chip in with a friend and split the case.
With the price of gas now days, why would you even think of making 12 separate trips to the wine shop? Make 1 trip, buy 12 bottles and save gas!
5. Wine rack
Because I HATE seeing an empty wine rack! A case of wine fills in the empty spaces nicely!
6. Unexpected guests
End the shame of not having wine on hand when you have friends drop by.
When Hubby forgets to mention you’ve been invited to the Boss’s house tonight! Now you can just grab a bottle of wine for the perfect Hostess gift!
Drink the wine over time, and see how the wine evolves. Hopefully, if you’ve selected well, you’ll be in for a treat!
Unless you have a crush on the hunk at the wine shop, why would you want to make 12 trips back for the same bottle of wine?
Get those last 12 bottles of your favorite vintage before someone else does! Clear that shelf!
11. Home decor
Think of all the clever things you can make with those great wooden wine case boxes.
12. End the guilt
End the guilty feeling of pulling the last bottle out of the wine rack. If you bought that case, you’d have 11 more left!
Remember, if you aren’t going to be drinking all the wine within a few weeks, store it properly so it will last and age gracefully. Let me know what your wine buying habits are, I’d love to know! Cheers!
