Why it Pays to Shop: A Tale of Two Wine Stores

teezeetoo | Dec 15, 2012 09:31 AM

Am a great fan of Spanish wines, and particularly like Vina Ardanza Riserva. Was in Central, a wine store I generally like, and saw the 2001 Riserva for somewhere around 40 plus a bottle, so I passed it up. Picked up a Terre Nere etna rosso instead, at a more affordable 20 or so. Later this week was at Gordon's in Waltham: the 2001 Vina Ardanza Riserva was about 24.00. The 2011 Terre Nere was about 15.00. I checked a few more and found Gordon's cheaper on 6 out of 6 bottles I had looked at when at Central's. think I'm going to give up supporting cambridge real estate.
