Spanish wine in the UK at Spanish prices...!
« on: May 01, 2016, 19:39:38 PM »
I got well hacked off at paying a tenner a bottle for a decent bottle of Fino, and six or seven quid for a wine I know costs €4 in the Spanish equivalent of the local bakkal, so had a look at whats available online.  With a wee bit of help from Jancis Robinson, I had a good start and it appears buying direct from the country/producer is nothing new.

Her list for Spain: http://www.jancisrobinson.com/learn/where-to-buy/spain

The biggest issue is carriage - the majority of online suppliers who ship to the UK use couriers like UPS, Hermes etc, and shipping 12 bottles wine for many of them isn't cheap.

Have a look yourself, but the outright winner for me is: http://www.decantalo.com/  with https://www.vinissimus.com/ coming a close second.

Depends what you order, but our last order with Decantalo was a total of 62 bottles (wine & sherry) and the carriage was €46 with UPS.

Join their newsletter and you'll get 5% off your first order.  They also do spirits, so if you like good rums there are some decent prices compared to the UK and Duty Paid shops.

Buena salud!

You rolled two weeks' orders into one then?
