If you're looking for a particular bottle or want to comparison shop, check out Wine-Searcher.com which catalogs the inventories of almost 9,000 stores in the US and worldwide. Also try WineAccess.com, Winezap.com and Winefetch.com.

WineCommune is like an eBay for wine enthusiasts and is popular with collectors. You can often find some good deals here.

It's best to choose a store that is located close to your shipping destination. This can sometimes save you on shipping costs, and it can help limit the time your wine is out on the road or in the air and exposed to unregulated temperatures which can ruin your wine. During very hot or very cold weather, you'll want to select a fast method of shipping or make sure the wine seller holds your order until the weather is more agreeable.
