Welcome to the Wine Curmudgeon e-shop

wine curmudgeon storeThe Wine Curmudgeon store opens today. You can visit by clicking here, or on the Wine Curmudgeon shop link at upper right hand corner of the page.

Eventually, the store will carry all the Wine Curmudgeon merchandise you could ever want, including hats, t-shirts, and the sort of tchotchkes that make you go, “Wow, I need to buy that.”

Now, though, you can purchase the cheap wine book (or follow links to buy the various e-book versions) and VingardeValise wine suitcases and accessories.

When I started the blog 10 years ago, I had a vague idea that I needed to do e-commerce to make any money from the site. I was hesitant to do it, though, even though my grandfather and father were top-notch retailers. I’m a writer, and worrying about fulfillment isn’t my idea of a good time.

If you have questions about the shop or suggestions for merchandise, .
