    Good evening.
    Does anyone have a source for purchasing wine bottles? We are a small vineyard hoping to be a smallish winery and are looking for a source of new bottles .. we don’t need 1000’s but the cheapest we can find are about $14/case at local wine brew store. I have space and am willing to buy more than I need at present which will be around 300-500 or so.
    Any help appreciated
    Brigitte

    Need to check into a palette price, maybe even truckload price. That's the only way to get a break on them.

    I was able to get 100s over a few months by asking neighbors. It was suggested here to check with higher priced restaurants.

    Where are you, Brigitte? I have the idea you are in Canada, but I may be wrong...

    Have you looked at Shore Container?

    Only $1 cad for bottles here in western canada, most expensive place in town is only $1.20 cad a bottle, im friends with the lady at our local wine shop, she charges me $10 a case, and she sends them through a commercial sanitizer before i pick them up.

    Tricorbraun sells wine bottles.
    Not sure if you have enough volume.

    There are lots of wineries in Missouri. If I were you I would find a nice friendly small winery and see if you can't piggy back some cases of new bottles onto their orders. They will be much cheaper. Even if you pay the winery a little more for them than what they pay for the bottles and shipping, it will be much less expensive.

    we use All American Container and they are nationwide. I pay 7.84 a case for any amount for clear or antique green mid punt. Very nice and easy to work with. If you are doing a winery, you have to use new bottles.

    I got real exited when I saw Packaging Options' bottle prices but got floored by their shipping rates, $64 for 4 cases. For small bottle orders, I've found MoreWine to have the best delivered costs for wine bottles.
