Yes, we offer an additional 10% discount on regularly priced wines when purchasing a case or more. This includes twelve 750ml or six 1.5 liter bottles. The price on our regularly priced wines ends with a "9" while the price on our sale, or Net wines, will end with an "8" which denotes they are not eligible for further discount. Sale or Net wines will count toward accumulating a case quantity with the 10% discount applied to only regularly priced wines purchased. For example, if you were to purchase six 750ml bottles of sale or net wines and six 750ml bottles of regularly price wine, you'd receive 10% off the regularly priced wines.

On average, expect guests to drink 2 drinks, or servings, of an alcoholic beverage the first hour and one for each hour there after. Remember, people drink more when the weather is warm.
If you plan to serve bar drinks, you should allow 1½ ounces of liquor for each drink. That means you'll get about 16 drinks from one 750 ml bottle of liquor. Allow about a quart of mixer – soda water, tonic, water or ginger ale – for every 3 persons.
When serving wine, plan on one 750 ml bottle for every 2 guests (one bottle for every 3 to 4 guests if the wine will be served only during a meal). If you prefer to buy the large 1.5 L bottle of wine, it will serve 4 guests (6 to 8 guests if served only during a meal).
When ordering beer for a party, allow for about 12 ounces per guest for every half hour to hour. For a large crowd, you might want to buy a keg.
Always have some nonalcoholic beverages on hand. Besides having juices, have bottled water, lemonade, soda and/or iced tea.
If you're uncertain about how much to buy, you can return any unopened bottles of liquor or wine. If you entertain frequently, you may want to plan ahead and shop in quantity.
