Wanderlust launches one-hour wine delivery service in London
Wanderlust Wine is to launch Wine on Demand, which it describes as “a revolutionary new online service, delivering wine to Londoners within the hour”.
Wine on Demand is designed to give wine lovers the flexibility to order quality wines, with delivery to their doors within an hour of ordering.
Wanderlust Wine was founded by Richard Ellison, who saw a gap in the market to offer good value, sustainably made wine from small producers that are off the beaten track. The wines are all sourced directly and are made sustainably, featuring organically farmed, biodynamic and vegan wine selections.
Ellison said: “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% feed which other London delivery companies charge to vendors, which is then passed on to the consumer. 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, seven days a week.”
Customers can order directly from the Wanderlust Wine website by selecting the Wine on Demand banner or product category, which will display the curated range of wines available by the hour. There is a £20 minimum order size and the delivery charge is based on distance from the Wanderlust Wine warehouse in SE1. Addresses in zone one will be charged a delivery fee of £4.99 and the fee increases depending on how far the courier has to travel. Once the order has been placed, a tracking link will be sent via text message.
