Hello! I've finally gotten to the point where I want to order new bottles as I've got quite a bit aging to bottle and I'd like to have a consistent bottle for all. I'm looking for about 20 cases at this point.

I got a quote from West Coast Bottles and their prices are awesome before freight, and so I'm looking for a local loading dock to drop ship for the best rate. (They will sell direct to a home winemaker)

Before I order, I have some questions for my fellow Midwest wine makers.

Where do those of you doing high-volume, for those of you who buy new, where do you get your bottles? Is anyone aware of a bottle distributor in the Chicago area?

Any Central IL wine clubs exist that would want to do a group buy of bottles to save on freight?

I'm hoping to buy a decent quantity, then can reuse those, until I break them or give them away and need more! I'm trying to find that happy balance between the cost of buying new vs the effort involved in acquiring 200+ bottles, sorting through them for the same size\shape\color, removing the labels and cleaning them.

Thanks for any ideas,

Tom
