And here are a few tips for buying wine in bulk:
- Negotiate with your vendor on corkage. They should be willing to waive the corkage or offer a screaming deal.
- Be sure to confirm the time of delivery for the wine and make sure you have a plan in place if the storage facility is locked. You don’t want your wine sitting out in the hot sun!
- Figure that there are four glasses of wine per bottle. Consider that the average guest drinks 2-3 glasses of wine and you can do the math based on the number of guests.
