Best places to buy cases of good wine cheap?

I'm posting this in "Boston" and not in "Wine" because it's about where people buy wine in the Boston area. Let me know if you think my judgement is off.

I'm shopping for wine for a wedding - will need to buy 8-10 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 $5-7 a bottle, maybe something from Spain, but mostly I want to know where people shop. New Hampshire is great for the savings on tax, but most state stores don't have a lot of good wine under $7. Maybe the Nashua, NH Costco?

Another thought is Trader Joes right here in Boston - some prices are so good, that even paying tax you still save money. And they seem to really specialize in the under $10 range.

How do restaurants get wine? Is it possible to buy in this kind of quantity from a distributor?

What else might I not be thinking of? Where would you go to get a good price on a quantity of good wine? I can travel a bit, so if there is something awesome in New Haven or Portland or wherever, let me know.
