Imagine being able to share great wines with your collector friends and make some extra cash to fund your collection at the same time. Direct selling wine is a hot new trend in the wine industry that embraces the home collector as wine sales rep. Think Avon parties, but for wine.
WineShop at Home and other similar retailers are sending representatives half a dozen bottles of wine for tastings. The reps can then take the orders and the companies will deliver the wine. Those who do this as their sole job are making a nice chunk of income and it doesn’t take up too much time. It is a neat newer way for wine lovers to share their interests and make some extra cash doing it.
