Australia’s Best Online Wine Shops
Most of us are time poor these days and we’re looking to make the most of every minute of every day. So, why take the time to visit the wine shop and lug those heavy bottles of vino home when you could order your wine online (from work, on the bus, or even better by the pool) and have your bottles delivered straight to your doorstep?
There really is no excuse for an empty wine rack with the multitude of online wine shops available these days. But with so much choice just which online wine store should you order from?
We take a look into some of the top Australian online wine stores to help you decide which one is right for you.
Vinomofo was started by two young guys in a garage in Adelaide and it bucks the old fashioned wine snob trend. They offer an interesting selection of wines with daily deals at reasonable prices. All with their cheeky ‘mofo’ charm. They bill themselves as ‘the most epic wine site on the planet’ and who are we to disagree? We’re customers ourselves!
Best for: Millennials wanting unique and quirky wines to impress their mates.
Cracka Wines is an alternative wine store supporting small, medium and family owned Australian wineries. Here as well as the big brands you’ll find boutique wines not often available in every bottle shop. We also love their Wine Library, which offers thousands of reviews and is a great resource to help you choose your perfect drop from the comfort of your arm chair.
Best for: Those looking for boutique wines who want to support smaller local producers.
Get Wines Direct was one of the first and is one of the biggest online wine stores. They average over 200 daily wine specials. They also claim to offer some of the lowest prices online (Note: we haven’t verified this claim). They offer a curated selection of both Australian and International wines.
Best for: Those wanting the biggest choice of wines and deals.
Wine Market offers its customers ‘Inside Deals’. They use their industry connections to bring you up and coming wines and grape varieties. The idea is that you will know about it before most people do. They also offer customer reviews on their website to help with your selections.
Best for: Trendsetters. Those who want to discover wines most people have never heard of.
Wine Selectors point of difference is that their wine selections are chosen by a panel of winemakers, wine show judges and wine educators. They judge according to Australian Wine Show judging criteria and only those wines that receive at least a Bronze medal score are selected for their range. They also give you direct access to the cellar door of over 400 wineries. We love their wine plans!
Best for: True wine connoisseurs.
Langton’s started as a fine wine auction house and now also offers an online wine shop. Langton’s specialises in Australian and international fine wines. This site is not for those looking for a cheap bottle! Wine brokerage services are also offered if you’re looking to expand your collection.
Best for: Wine snobs and serious collectors.
So, there you have it. Take your pick from any one of these quality online wine stores and you’ll never have to worry about lugging your wine home again, or having an empty wine rack! #sipsiphooray
