Wine offers a huge variety of wines to choose from. They also provide some customer friendly policies that make it nice to shop at this website. However, we found the shopping experience to be a little messy at times.

To navigate the huge selection, customers may select the Wine Shop drop down tab and then further sort by price, type, style, region, publication and more. Customers will find literally thousands of wine options from around the globe. When results appear customers are asked to slowly sort one by one to peruse the options. Unfortunately, this is not a fast process unless the customer knows exactly what they are looking for and type the name in within the search bar.

As far as pricing goes, our sample comparison found the prices to be slightly higher than some of the other companies reviewed.

Wine also offers an affordable and flexible wine club for those want to begin receiving wine selections on a regular basis.

Wine also stands behind their deliveries and works with customers that have a problem with their order. They offer a 1-800 number and customers service assistance Monday through Friday.

While the website lacked the neatness and organization necessary for a selection of this size, we were impressed with the amount of choices they offer. We also liked some of the low price shipping for first time shoppers the Steward Ship option if someone plans on making regular purchases throughout the year. Wine has it's perks but keep an eye on the per bottle costs.

House of Glunz

HOUSE OF GLUNZ Visit Site

Cost:

Starting from $10

The House of Glunz has been in the business of selling wine for over 129 years. Needless to say, they know what they are doing when it comes to wine and spirits. Their business is located in Chicago and operates out of a store front in Old Town. Wine connoisseurs enjoy the selection, ambiance of the old building and the knowledgeable staff. In an effort to continue to provide fine wines to their customers, The House of Glunz started selling their wines online. Although, their main business really seems to be in person at their store front.

The House of Glunz website is pretty basic. On their homepage you can select from wine, spirits, custom gifts and wine and whiskey clubs. They also offer a small list of featured products to select from. When looking at wines, you can select from red, white, rose, sparkling, dessert, etc. There are hundreds of wines to choose from.

Once you select a wine thereís additional information and notes about that specific wine Ė like varietal, country, region, size and descriptive information about the taste and flavors. There is also an area where you can review their wines but we never found a bottle that had been reviewed. Leads us to believe that this website has not been around very long and/or they donít do a lot of business online. You can also narrow your search by selecting by country, variety and price. Prices on the website for wine vary from $10 a bottle to $550. Prices seem to fall in line with other online websites.

The House of Glunz also sells spirits on their website. Their selection is pretty extensive and prices vary from $7 to $7,500. $7 will get you some cherry bitters and $7,500 will get you Champagne Cognac from 1934. This bottle of champagne has been sitting in the cellar at The House of Glunz for 80+ years. The information for their spirits is very similar to the wine. You can select by several different categories Ė gin, rum, tequila, whiskey, brandy, vodka, etc. You can also narrow it down by country and price. Once you have selected a product you will see the additional information and notes about that item. Again, there is a section for reviews but we didnít see any reviews for the items we looked at.

The House of Glunz also offers custom gifts and wine and whiskey clubs. If you want to purchase a custom gift you have to either email or call the store. Wine and Whiskey clubs are offered through a sister site and canít be purchased on their main page. The House of Glunz website is really only selling wine and spirits.

The House of Glunz is not able to ship internationally and is restricted from shipping to certain states. All packages must be accepted and signed by someone over 21. Shipping fees will be determined by the availability of the product, shipping date, shipping method and weight. Sounds like it could get pricey! Returns are only excepted when an error has occurred by The House of Glunz. No other returns are accepted. With not much leeway here, could become frustrating if you are unhappy with a product.

The House of Glunz is a place that we would like to visit in Chicago on our next trip to the windy city. Their website is pretty basic and we think lacks personal reviews about the products. They seem to cater to people that enjoy high-end wine and spirits. Most products are expensive and will be costly to ship. Our guess is that most people visit their store, enjoy a bottle of wine and then head to their website to purchase another. We donít see ourselves purchasing anything from their site anytime soon.

For online wine shoppers, it's good to know which wine companies provide the best shopping experience and affordable, high quality wines. When shopping online for wine, you should be sure to look for the following characteristics:

  • Selection. What types of wines are sold at this website. Is there a wide variety of wines to choose from?
  • Cost. What is the price range of the wines listed? How does that compare to the wines available at other companies?
  • Return policy. If there's a problem with your wine purchase, will the company work to replace the bottle of wine or refund your money?
