    Wine straight from the case: Not so formal wine shops

    by Roadquill Written Dec 28, 2012

    In addition to the more formal wine shops, with the bottles of wine and wine paraphenalia appropriately displayed, there are several wine shops where they stack the wine boxes with a handwritten price. Some of these prices seemed pretty good. A 2008 St. Emilion Grand Cru for less than 10 euro.

    What to buy: Wine, specifically hmmmm? St. Emilion Merlot based wines.

    Wine bag for our purchases

    After our wine tasting we decided to look around and possibly make a few purchases. I know that we purchased some excellent wine along with the wine bag you see in the picture to carry the wine in.

    The wine bag was made of a burlap material which was quite sturdy and the one we purchased held only two bottles.

    We also purchased a bottle of Champagne, a Rose Cru if memory serves me right. It was so good.

    What to buy: Wine bag, wine, champagne

    During our walk around St. Emilion Cecile and Patrick decided to puchase some wine and have it shipped back home.

    The sales person was very informative and showed them the many types of wines St. Emilion is famous for. After a few samples they decided on some excellent reds.

    What to buy: Wine of course

    What to pay: According to Cecile the wine was very very reasonable, the shipping charges were a bit high, but both Cecile and Patrick were very happy with their selections.

    This is where we had our wine tasting. It was a nice small shop that was well run with just enough room for the four participants and our driver.

    What to buy: I believe we all bought a little something here before leaving. I know I still have two bottles on the shelf from that trip as well as the glasses I needed that day.

    Checking out a shop

    ....before buying wine. Don't start buying wine at the first shop you encounter. For one thing, you'll be walking around with that wine for the rest of your stay. And there are many, many more places to check out. Most ship to many countries including the US.

    Most places have some wines ready for tasting (like day specials and such).
