Does anyone have any great website where they buy cheap wine bottles from?

Thanks!

Although they have a small selection, Label Peelers is pretty cheap. About $12 per case and was $20 FedEx Ground shipping. I used Packaging Options Direct once, and while I paid $6 a case, shipping was astronomical ($50).

If you have a winery nearby, consider going there. Most would be happy to give them away since they just recycle them.

If you don’t mind doing a little work, check your local winery. Where I from, they can’t re-use the bottles they consume for their wine tasting. I get once used bottles for $5 a case from my local guy. You just have to soak the labels off. If you have a couple wineries around you, find the one that has the labels that come off easy. I’ve clean off more than a couple hundred bottles. Good luck.

All American Container. 8.44 a case and watch for specials. Don't know how much $$ for shipping. We take a pickup and bring back pallets of 90 cases at a time

Bottle related so not a total hijack. I've been looking for amber because they are supposedly superior for long term storage. Why aren't they more popular? I know beer vendors, where light skunks beer, sell in green because of sales. :(

The bottles shown in the post might be called green or light green. I use antique green which is close to amber in darkness and pretty much readily available.

Label Peelers has green bottles on sale right now for about 8 dollars a case. I’m on my way there as soon as they e mail me there’re ready for pick up.

You can also go to local restaurants that sell lots of wine. Many will even save their bottles for you. I did this when I first got started. Have to soak bottles to get labels off, but they were free. Olive Garden saved me a bunch.

For personal use, I collect alcohol bottles from friends. Washing and removing plastic labels, is a PITA but, it's' free'. Bars here, sells bottles too. It's an option as well.

I was in the Pittsburgh area last week and picked up 30 cases of deep punt Antique Green Bordeaux bottles for $8.89 a case, it was only 20 minutes from where I was staying. After tax and the pallet charge it was $9.69 a case. It's close to the same as what I pay when I get them from the local wineries but not close to what I need.
