Did you know that Champagne is not Champagne if it does not come from the province of Champagne? That is something that you should know before you decide to buy French wine online. There are many different variations to French wine and many different rules and regulations that wine has to abide by that you need to know before you buy French wine online. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

Different wines have different labels that you should read before investing any money into the site. If the label says "Vigneron indépendant," then the wine is made by an independent wine maker. If the label says something along the line of "Mis en bouteille au..." then the wine is made on the same location that it was grown. These are important things that all wine enthusiasts know about.

There is also something called the appellation system which controls the quality of French wine.

Vin de Table – label only shows you the producer of the wine and tells you it was made in France, but not exactly where.
Vin de Pays – Tells you the specific place in France that the wine was made.
Appelation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) – Wine from a specific area with special restrictions on grape variety and winemaking methods.
Vin Délimité de Qualité Superieure (VDQS) – this is less strict than AOC, and rarely used. Whenever you attempt to buy French wine online, all of this information should be available for you to read, otherwise you never know what you will be getting. You may think you are getting a red wine and actually getting a bottle of seawater. You wouldn’t want that to happen, now would you?

Recently, France has been experiencing a drop in demand from foreigners for their wine except for Champagne and some higher priced wines. Because of this, if you want to buy French wine online, you are basically in charge. It’s a buyers market and you hold most of the cards when it comes to price. If one website has a price that you believe is above market value, look around to see if someone offers it at a lower price. Chances are you’ll find someone who does have a better price.

Now that you know what to look for when you buy French wine online, what are you waiting for? Pull up a chair, pull out the plastic, and order you and your special someone a crate of red wine for that upcoming special occasion. This will be one special occasion that they won’t soon forget.
