Online wine stores are the place to shop if you want to stock up without the hassle of transporting all of those bottles to your desired destination. The best places to buy wine online include NakedWines.com for unique bottles from small winemakers, ReserveBar for its premium and limited-edition wines, and Drizly for its convenient one-hour delivery. You must be 21 years or older to order from these sites and receive your package. Keep in mind any additional shipping fees and state restrictions on alcohol delivery. Due to concerns over the coronavirus, some companies are changing delivery standards to minimize social contact, while others may have limited stock.

Online options require minimal energy but deliver on all the perks. Just remember to read the fine print and plan on having someone 21 or older to sign for the package. If you're looking for an ongoing delivery service, check out our guide to the best wine subscriptions.

That means they're free of additives and sugar, they have lower alcohol content, and they're lab-tested for purity. According to Dry Farm, the government approves of the use of 76 additives, and since wine bottles are not required to have contents labels, you don't get the full picture of what you're drinking. The company imports all of its natural wines from small family farmers around the world, but mostly from Europe. Shipping: All ground shipping is free, while expedited shipping has a small fee. Dry Farm Wines only ships to the US, but it does offer helpful advice for how to find natural wines if you're located elsewhere. It takes 3-6 business days for orders to arrive on the West Coast, and 5-7 business days on the East Coast. Currently, delivery requires an ID check, but no signature. What to buy:

Like ReserveBar, Drizly offers other kinds of alcohol in addition to wine. Best of all, it delivers the exact wine you need in under an hour, and it doesn't mark up prices. Most of its 3,000+ wine offerings are affordable (less than $20) and nearly half of its stock is red wine. Shipping: For one-hour delivery, the fee is $5 per order. In New York City, most stores offer delivery for free, but some areas may have increased fee zones and higher minimums based on your address. For larger shipments, shipping fees can vary depending on the store you order from, but it will be a flat rate price. You'll see the final shipping cost in your cart when you check out. What to buy:
