How to Buy Wine for the Biggest Wine Snob You Know

A.) Ask the biggest wine snob you know, in a conspiratorial tone, "If you were going to buy wine for the biggest wine snob you know, what would you buy?" Devious, but effective.

B.) Ask the finest wine merchant. Not at all devious and very effective.

Back in the late '80's, my late wife (then my fiancée) and I went to Morrell & Company in NYC with a modest budget to begin a wine collection. The wine journal we had begun had few entries, and were mostly reds. The only way we were going to round out our knowledge and experience was with expert help.

The staff was not only helpful and courteous, but took a real interest in our likes, dislikes, goals and budget. The dozen bottles we acquired were a well-rounded selection of varieties and types that helped us learn more about what to focus on in the future.

We did splurge on one sparkling wine: Charbaut & Fils Certificate Blanc de Blanc '79. Although we adored Asti, it turned out to be a revelation. If possible (and available), consider trying the '75 vintage of this beauty. - America's Premier Wine Merchant.

Quality and Timesaving for Online Shoppers

More than anything, being able to shop online means saving time. The busy shopper cannot always run to the store (or wish to do so). In just the last few years, the emergence of the e-Store has been a boon to the discriminating customer who wants both fast service and choices. An online store can showcase many items of a specific kind in a way that surpasses any brick-and-mortar shop.

Practically all of the finest online stores offer live help and easy access to customer service by phone. While you look through your choices, a representative can help you select the best "fit" for your needs. Generous return policies and guarantees for online shoppers have become the norm. Since credit card purchases are now secured by SSL (a proven encryption technology), the upscale customer is even more likely to buy online than the "bargain shopper".

The scope and variety of offers online has exploded in the past few years. Offerings for Apparel, Women's Shoes and Accessories, Jewelry, Home Furnishings, Entertainment and the like are now commonplace. Services such as Luxury Travel, Spas, even Real Estate and Mortgages for the high end user are fast growing sectors of the total "Rich Market", responding to the increased demand from these consumers.
