Reports today suggest that Amazon is targeting the wine market as ripe for picking. According to the Wall Street Journal, the ecommerce giant held a workshop earlier this week that was attended by 100 wineries.
I've always found Sam's Club to be a good place to buy wine. They have an interesting, if limited, selection ranging from inexpensive, mass-market wines to pricier fare. Some of their best offerings are inexpensive wines that are hard to find elsewhere. For example, after trying one bottle of the rather amazing Cameron Hughes Lot 250 Meritage 2009 that cost a mere $8, I hustled back for another half-dozen bottles. That wine is a one-shot deal - when it's gone, it's gone.
