Shopping online is becoming increasingly popular and in some cases with good reason. There are websites which allow you to order all sorts of wines and so are not particularly different from a wine retailer on the high street but there are other sites like http://shop.langhe.net/en/ that specialize in only dealing with certain wines, in the case of that website it is wines from the Langhe region of Italy.
It is perhaps understandable that the specialist wine websites are becoming popular because in many instances, they are the only place you where you can get a particular wine you may be fond of. The wines from the Langhe region for instance are of high quality and regardless of how some countries try, they still cannot exactly imitate the taste of a good Langhe wine.
The wines from Langhe are of such high quality, as are some other wines from Italy that the Italian government in the 20th century decided to award some of the best wines a certification acknowledging that quality and to be as sign that the wines are authentic and not duplicated. To show that a wine has been awarded this commendation, the letters DOC, DOCG or IGT are emblazoned on their labels.
To add further commendation to the wines from Langhe, in 2014, Langhe was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage because of its cultural landscape and its history of wine making. With such commendations and recognition, it is not surprising that many people got to like these particular wines but what may be surprising is that many wine retailers around the world do not stock these high quality wines.
With so many wines being made today from so many different countries, it is sometimes hard for a wine retailer to know what they should keep in stock as they do not want to order wines that will not sell. This is understandable but to not stock some of the best known and most honoured wines remain a mystery to me. However, at least today with the introduction of the Shop langhe website, anyone from anywhere in the world can now order their favourite Langhe wines and so do not have to rely on a retailer have them in stock.
The Shop Langhe website does not only allow for the ordering of wines from Langhe as they also allow for the ordering of other well-known products from the Langhe region, such as their cheese and delicious snacks. The site does not go to some wholesaler in order to meet your order as instead, they prefer to go to the producer directly and in doing so are able to offer you the best possible prices for the wine and other products. As with anything these days, a shipping fee has to be added and whilst the wines can be shipped anywhere in the world, the cost of shipping may vary from one location to another but will always be very reasonable and fair, especially for bulk orders.
