Winter is definitely on its way, and nothing quite warms my black soul like a couple of bottles, I mean glasses… of wine! Now, how does that get any better you say, well, I’ll tell you how. Thanks to modern technology, there is no need to dress like you’re going to the snow for a quick trip to your local Bottle-O. Did you know you can now get your beverages of choice delivered straight to your door?
Picture it: you open the door looking stunning AF in your dressing gown and fluffy bed socks to see some sexy, sexy bottles of wine waiting for you. I mean come on, YES. PLEASE.
Now, to save you the trouble, I have narrowed down the list of places around Gtown that provide this magical service.
Bottles and Barrels
One of our favourites, Bottle & Barrels, has teamed up with Deliveroo to step up the game in alcoholic convenience. You can now officially order your beer, cider and wine from your phone and have it show up on your doorstep… welcome to the 21st century. Choose from a Furphy six pack, Blackman’s lager, the delicious Pirate Life IPA or you can get your hand on the Lick Pier Ginger Beer four pack. You can also indulge in their Craft Beer Mixed Six Packs – all you need to do is choose the type of beer (sours, sessions, pale) and the team will provide a mix of their best for you to try at home. As for the wines, you can get some Whistler White Blend from the Barossa or some Sancerre Christian Salmon from France. Too good.
Also found on Deliveroo, Highton’s favourite bottle-o have you covered for all your alcoholic needs on demand! They offer everything from beers and ciders, to white wine, sparkling wine, rose and even a great selection of fine reds. The time has come where you can have your steak cooking with its matching bottle of red on the way, how good is that?? If you are lucky enough to be in the delivery range, then make sure you hit them up.
Your local Dan’s now offers an ‘On Demand’ service for their entire range, letting you choose what you want, and when you want it delivered – in store hours of course. Whether that be ASAP or in a couple of days, it’s completely up to you. There’s even an offer to get unlimited delivery from $50 a year…
BWS on demand
BWS also offers an ‘On Demand’, you can get it scheduled up to 7 days before you’ll be needing. All you need to do is set your store and find your favourite products, checkout and tell them where and when you need your drinks (and if you want them chilled) and then wait! You can also track them with a live driver tracker, so you can see how soon you’ll be able to hold your new baby.
Now, let’s get Naked. Just kidding. Naked Wines are an online wine store, and although they aren’t located in Geelong, they’re still good in helping you kickstart your winter wine stash! You can’t tell me you’ve never gotten a $100 off voucher from them in the mail at one stage of your life. They have a HUGE range to choose from, and with a minimum of six bottles per order, you’ll be set for the night, or the week… whatever you decide. Oh, and while the program works off a subscription basis, go and order your first box, and cancel later if you struggle with commitment. You’re welcome.
And just like that, we have enough alcohol to get us through the winter. Does anyone want to come over?
