The list of things being delivered to our door is getting so long that we might never need to step outside again.
Whether it’s food, cars or clothing, delivery services will courier pretty much anything to you if you’re willing to pay for it.
The latest company making this an ever-increasing reality is Wanderlust wine’s service Wine On Demand, an operation which will see wine delivered to your door. So far, so usual, one might think. However, this service promises to deliver within the hour.
Yep, you read that correctly. You shall never need to persuade someone else to run to the shop for you five minutes before it closes.
Whether you fancy a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc or Molmenti & Celot Extra Dry Prosecco, Londoners can select their favourite bottle (or six) from Wanderlust’s website, and a keen cyclist will deliver it 60 minutes later.
We must point out here that the service is currently only available to those in the capital. Prices for delivery start at £4.99, and depend on how close you are to the winery’s depot in South East London (that’s SE1, for those keen to work out their distance on Citymapper. You know, simply out of curiosity).
And according to company creator Richard Ellison, self-confessed wine “fanatic”, unlike other delivery services in operation, the company boasts fine-quality wine at a slightly cheaper price.
“This represents a significant step up from what is currently available to Londoners – we only charge a small £2 premium for the convenience versus the 35% fees which other London delivery companies charge to vendors, which is then passed on to the consumer,” says Ellison.
“Ordering direct through us, as actual wine merchants, means there is more in it for the producer and consumer. At the end of the day this is about Wanderlust Wine providing amazing quality wines at fair prices at any time of the day, 7 days a week,” he added.
You might be interested to know that the service operates seven days a week, taking orders from 9am to 10.30pm via this blessed website — but please, use this intel wisely.
