This is essentially a repost of a 2007 thread, which is pretty much the exact situation I find myself in, many years later.
I'm posting this in "Boston" and not in "Wine" because it's more about where people buy wine in the Boston area.
I'm shopping for red wine for a wedding (we're all set on white) - will need to buy a few cases. Where do people shop when they need to buy in quantity and want both a good wine and a good deal?
I'd like to spend under $9 bottle. Costco, Trader Joe's, Wine and Cheese Cask in Somerville come to mind, as well as the wine shop next to the Fresh Pond Whole Foods - we've also heard good things about Gary's in Newton. If you go to any of these stores, are there any reds they're currently stocking that are in our price range that you'd recommend (we're having Korean food - short ribs, etc.)
We'd like to avoid driving farther afield to NH, etc., unless there's a REALLY good deal on a particular wine to be had. We are leaning more towards Zinfandel/Primitivo, Tempranillo, or Petit Syrah, but really are open to anything - blends, etc.
Specific stores, with a specific wine in mind, would be most appreciated, as we aren't big into reds, so we hardly know where to begin!
