My father started doing business with Gold Standard decades ago and always got very fair prices on wine per case. Naturally, the more you purchase the better the deal. They can often get selections for you that are not on the store shelves. When I moved to Minnesota I was stymied by the lack of knowledgeable wine merchants and the availability of European wine so I decided to stick with what my family already knew. Gold Standard. Luckily I visit the city enough to pick up my wines when I'm there. They do ship but you need to make sure your not in a state that has restrictions on wine shipments. The staff at Gold Standard really know wines and spirits, unlike most retail liquor stores that just have sales clerks. They are very professional and they want you to be happy with your selections.
Pros: great selection, knowledgeable staff, can order many hard to find items
