300 bottles of Opus One

Posted by bdavids3, Sep 3, 2008.

I'm interested in purchasing 300 bottles of Opus One. Any recommendations on where I can get such a quantity? The exact vintage doesn't matter so much. I made a similar purchase about 8 years ago and it was a real struggle at that time as Opus One is quite difficult to purchase in large quantities.

Do you need to make it all from one source?
You could use Snooth to find a handful of merchants who stock Opus One and place 4 or 5 orders for 4 to 8 cases each. It sounds more feasible than find one merchant who'll give you 25 cases!

That's a good suggestion, which I will look in to. The only problem is that I'm shipping them overseas, so to have to manage 4 or 5 separate orders seems to be more trouble than it's worth.

I don't know... I've always gotten excellent customer service whenever I've placed multiple thousand dollar orders from a retailer.

Sounds like this is going to be quite an event!

1) Can I come? ;)
2) How did you manage it last time?

Last time was about 120 bottles and it took awhile to find a distributor that had that quantity of Opus One. They also helped with the shipping/customs part, which was nice.

Currently I'm struggling finding a distributor with large quantities of Opus One. It could be I'm not looking in the right places (hence the reason for my forum post).
