Amazon Pops the Cork on the Wine Industry

As of November 8th, everyone’s favorite online retailer,, extended it’s reach to include the wine industry.

There are currently 1054 wines available for purchase and Amazon is shipping to 12 states. Early reports from other online retailers show “pre-shipping prices 10-25% lower than those offered on amazon.” However, with a standard $9.99 shipping for up to 6 bottles, some savings can still be found.

You can search and sort wines by scores, price, alcohol content and user ratings. This will likely become a strong point for amazon, as user reviews of the wines they are selling will likely end up at the top of search engine results. For more information, click here.
