Wine buffs: online ordering recommendations

One of the docs I work with was given a bottle of wine, which when I looked it up in the SA Platter guide seemed to be rather good. It's the 2005 of this stuff http://www.anwilka.com/INDEX.htm. The 2005 is nearly sold out and the 06 seems to be as good anyway. So far I have found it available online at few places going for about £220ish a box (12). Have any of you ordered online wine before and could you recommend a reliable wine seller that would be good at getting hold of something not widely availabe at a reasonable price. I don't obviously want to end up with 12yr old vinegear or finance a russian mob hit.

Was gonna suggest majestic till I read your post.....Er, I think we buy different kinds of wine... I tend to go for the £60 for a dozen type stuff...But then again - you did say "wine buffs" rather than "winos"....

There's quite a few but you have to shop around as not all stock the fav tipple.Berry Brothers: www.bbr.com/The secret celler are good: www.thesecretcellar.co.uk/Laithwaites run the Sunday Times wine club: www.laithwaites.co.uk/

Laithwaites are reliable, never had a crap bottle yet ( and very speedy delivery)

LOL. This is pretty much a one off. I tend to order SA wines on a specialist SA site, but usually buy everyday stuff from sainsburys etc for 3-7 quid a bottle mostly spanish/italian. Don't trust french stuff in supermarkets over here.

The Wine Society seem to be good.I'm more a fan of the '£3.00, and your never disappointed' range of wines

Where are you? I have a friend who is a small scale wine importer. He does a monthly run from SW Frnce but only delivers to certain towns and cities. Strictly payment on delivery which is nice.http://www.tastesoffrance.freewebspace.com/index.htmlHis wine is better than his website and better than average for the price. I think he goes to London as well as Bristol Birkenhead and Lossiemouth and a couple of other Jockanese towns.

another vote for Laithwaites here. I've tried a few other online place s - Virgin and can't remember the name of the mediocre one work uses, but Laithwaites is always consistent - like Sleazy said, never a bad wine - and if you don't like it they give you a refund! They even have a shop now - in Locksbottom.
