I'm starting to get into wine, a little more than just casually - and was wondering if anyone in the Dallas area has anywhere in particular they like for finding great and/or hard to get wines. Right now I mostly buy from Central Market, Costco(I know it sounds lame, but they do carry some good wine at good prices), and ordering online. I'm always nervous ordering/shipping online though, especially in the summer - I'm always worried the wine will be destroyed in transit. Right now I'm basically looking for wines good to drink now and/or within the next 2-3 years, although I do have the facility to appropriately store bottles for much longer. Any suggestions?

My dad use to belong to some kind of wine club and would get a bottle or two every month or so. They shipped it pretty good, as far as the bottles being safe. I think they shipped them in some kind of wood crate with lots of stuffing or wrapping so they weren't damaged in transit. As far as purchasing wine in the Dallas area, if I ever do it, I go to Central Market as they have a very good variety of stuff there. That or Whole Foods is good too. They both seem to have knowledgeable staff as well.

Try World Market. I've been to the one on Greenville near Lovers, they have had wine tastings. I usually pick up a chardonnay and a merlot when I go to CostCo.

Crush on Knox was a good place, but it closed down :-(

Another good place: http://www.thewinetherapist.com/

Jimmy's is great - Paul and his wife graduated from my high school..
Stoney's on Lower Greenville across and down from Goody Goody's - go to both if you can.
Sigel's on Upper Greenville.
The Wine Therapist at Live Oak and Skillman
Times Ten Winery in Lakewood. Also Centennial there has a great selection and good help.
https://www.calaiswinery.com/ in Deep Ellum - Benjamin is wonderful

This is a good local winery: Inwood Estates Vineyards and Wines America's Premier Tempranillo and Palomino Wines/index.html

Their tempranillo-cab blend is fantastic.

Goody Goody and Costco have the lowest prices as far as I can tell.

I like World Market but we fought so long and hard to be able to buy wine in Irving that I make it a point to buy it here; so pretty much buy it at Tom Thumb these days!

We usually get ménage trios at costco. Good stuff! We're craft beer folks and not heavily into wine. We generally shop lonestar beverages in Carrollton, Majestic in Addison, central market, or costco.
