Let’s face it, Australian’s love Aussie wine and with beautiful wineries, sensational flavours, and standout wine producers – who can blame us? With global markets changing over the last two years, there has been a shift in local demand and ordering wine online has never been easier. This means, there has never been a better time to get more value out of your next wine delivery.
Check the Frequency of your Wine Delivery
Simply put, the best way to get most out of your next wine delivery is by looking at how often you consume. Tally up over a month how often you sit back with a lovely drop, this could be over dinner, socialising with friends or on a lazy afternoon. For most wine lovers, it would make financial sense to purchase by the case overtime or through a wine club subscription. According to a Roy Morgan study, over a 4-week period, 46.3% of the Australian population consumes wine. In a report published by Wine Australia, Australia has the second highest person ‘still wine’ consumption outside of Europe (adults). If you’re sharing or consuming multiple bottles over a month period, a case delivery can be a better option, sporadically buying small quantities online can cost you more or driving down to the bottle shop here and there can be a hassle.
Look for Deals based on your Wine Preferences
Now it’s time for the fun part (aside from drinking of course) – choosing your wine! Think about your preferences while being a savvy shopper. It’s safe to say Australian consumers favour Australian wine as our market has a low reliance on imported varieties, which roughly retains 17% of the market share. This means you can start exploring the regions – buy what you love or try something different! From Cabernet Sauvignon from Coonawarra to a Shiraz from the Barossa Valley, you can mix up a variety to suit your upcoming months. You can snap up a saving through a wine club with red, white, or mixed subscription by receiving regular deliveries. Some clubs have specials on regions or varieties so, it can be a great way to maximise value.
Switch it up – why you should switch your wine delivery service!
Today’s market provides endless options for the customer, and with retailers offering benefits and giveaways, it’s only fair to sample what’s on offer. Each and every wine club and delivery service has something different to give – you can snap up a range of benefits from free shipping, gifts, competitions entries and much more. You now have the power to shop the same and new styles of wines from a variety of operators whilst choosing the value that resonates with you the most. It is an exciting time for the industry and as many new players provide innovative service models, you can take advantage of these offers with delivery to your front door.
The Pros and Cons to your Home Wine Delivery
In response to COVID-19, the need for a reliable and safe delivery service has amplified. Over the last two years, wine lovers have sought home delivery services due to lockdown orders and restrictions. This has ultimately stayed for various reasons, purchasing wines online is safe, easy and hassle free. Customers now have the opportunity to compare pricing online, while learning about winemakers all through the comfort of home. Online wine retailers have created a sense of community by creating and sharing likeminded content with customers which is something your typical bricks and mortar retailer may no be able to provide. In most recent news, large ‘same day delivery’ service operator with affiliations with the major chains have faced fresh criticism over claims of irresponsible service of alcohol. With the rise and popularity in home wine delivery, it is important to recognise that most operators and wine clubs’ providers support convenient services while respecting the responsible service of alcohol.
Shop Online and Compare Wine Products
Shopping for wine online definitely has many drawcards. The internet has never made shopping so easy, with a few clicks you can compare prices, access tasting notes and winemaker information and much, much more. Shrewd online retailers understand the competitive visibility of products and may tend to price products appropriately yet reasonably to sell, in comparison to a physical store where price comparison is limited to convenience. This encourages online retailers to source exclusive products for customers to ensure they are getting an excellent customer experience with products that aren’t available elsewhere.
