I rarely buy more than 2-3 bottles of any single wine- there is so much great juice out there I don't want to miss out on any of it.
I'm in my 40's and still buy that way. I never buy a case of anything.
I'm in my 30's and I'm with you. I would not buy a case of 1 wine either. 2-4 bottles is my usual purchase. I prefer variety.
We could start a separate buying habits thread. I try to do 2 of most things, though I buy 6 on occasion. I have bought more from the same producer at one shot, but its different bottlings.
About half the time I have not tasted the exact bottling and am relying on prior experience with the producer, ratings/notes, recommendations, etc. Curiously the most blind purchases I've ever made were my early purchases from Siduri/Novy and Ketcham Estate last year, relying on BB opinion more than anything else. Fantastic wine buying decision making on my part.
