Default Wine Bottles

Where can I get a really good deal on bottles, I'm going to need about 50 bottles in about a month from now?

I find glass recycle bins the best place. Free! The work of peeling the labels off (or leaving them on and writing on them with a sharpie) is worth not paying for them. Otherwise, try Austin Homebrew.

Tell every wine drinker you know to start saving bottles for you! Thats what I did, and the people who gave me more than 3 or 4 bottles I exchanged them with a full bottle of my wine! The rest I made sure they had a chance to taste it at a party or when they came over or something. Now I have all kinds of people dropping bottles off at the house, I can't keep up with making the wine!

Italian restaurants recycling bins are great. sell a lot of similar wine so bottles are same and there are plenty.

+1 on the restaurant. Someplace like olivegarden worked well for my buddy. he got 75 bottles in one night just by being there when the man said be there. Tlk to the manager and he will let you know the best days to hit the bin.

I always go to the recycling center. They are free and you can get blue, clear, green, champagne all sizes I've even got carboys from there before. They are always sorted in colors and I only pick the ones that have easy to remove labels. It always seems like they have 3 or 4 6x6 tubs full and you can go when it's good for you or a few days before you bottle. It's harder for me to get boxes.
