If you really like a particular wine, buy a case or more to get the best price, store it properly, and drink one bottle every six months to see how it develops over time.
With twelve bottles in a case of wine, a case purchase usually gives you a price discount of 10 to 15 percent and allows you to enjoy the wine and observe its changes as it develops to maturity and will most likely still give you a half dozen bottles or so when it has really hit its peak.
With the economy in recession, there are some great deals on wine right now. If you need help on what to buy or where to buy, refer back to our posts on Super Bargain Wines for Tough Times, Super Bargain Wines in the $10 to $25 Range, Buy online if you know what you want, Searching for a wine online, and Best Wine Shops for Washington Wine.
Two of my favorite Super Bargains under $10 that make great case purchases are the Penfolds Koonunga Hill label from Australia and the Columbia Crest Grand Estates label from Washington State.
