If it's for a nonspecial dinner I'll just grab a bottle from the grocery store. but for special dinners I will goto a wine store.

In Tennessee there is only one option, the liquor store. Our grocery stores only sell beer/wine coolers and such.

There should be a couple of other options.

I live in an area with about two dozen wineries, so I can either buy a local wine at a farmers market or at the winery itself. There are wine tasting all the time, so it's easy to go out and sample wines on a weekend afternoon.

It's rare that I buy wine at the grocery store, since they tend to have low quality wines, but if I spot a good one at a good price, I'll buy one or two bottles. The local wine & liquor store has a reasoably good selection.


I like Merlots, Pinot Noirs, Shirazs, Syrahs, and Lembergers, and also Chardonnays and Rheinweins. I've had some great white wines from the Rhein Valley near Karlsruhe.

I get some from the grocery store; they have a few halfway decent wines. For some occasions, I'll stop at the local wine store. But, sometimes I know of a wine I want that isn't stocked locally, so I'll order those online. It's really the only way to get really good wine here. I'll buy a half case or case at a time if I order online to last quite a while. It's nice to have that option since there aren't a lot of choices around here for wine stores.

We can buy Tennessee wine at the Tennessee wineries. :yuck:

It's strange that this poll does not include one of the most obvious possibilities: going to the winery and buying it directly from them.

I have a great local wine store, which also sells imported cheese and wonderful bread.

That's only the most obvious to someone living in wine country. :tongue:

We actually have a tiny winery not far up the road from me...the wine selection ranges from paint thinner to pancake syrup. :uhh: Actually, the one rather sweet wine is okay as a dessert wine, though from talking to the guy who runs the place, it's not what they had in mind at all. I didn't expect spectacular wine when I visited there, but figured since it's just up the road, I'd do some tasting and see if there was anything worth buying...it was a bit of a struggle to avoid coughing and gagging on the first one I tried. I might go back and buy some of the jams they sell.

I get a lot from the supermarket, since there's a huge variety and there are regularly some really good bargains which can be had.

I make a trip to Burgundy at least once a year and fill the car up. (I mean fill it!). I also make about 48 bottles a year myself (various red fruit).

Straight to the producer :). There is even a wine bearing my name.

Grocery stores here don't sell wine. So, it's a trip to the wine/liquor store, or a vacation out to the wineries and order a case or so, or order from wineries online.
