Whether you want a bottle to open and enjoy now, or are looking for a bottle that can be laid down and enjoyed sometime in the future, then we are sure you will be able to find something suitable from our online shop. Our enterprise is based on supplying expertly chosen wine from small family vineyards, all of which come with tasting and storage notes. We can accommodate customers who are looking to buy wine in the form of just a single bottle, or a mixed case that can be individually created with the intention of now or to lay down and drink in 30 years time. Buying a bottle of wine always makes for a great gift, whether for birthdays, Christmas, weddings, and even Valentines Days. But what makes our service a unique gift is that we can store your wine in a personal virtual cellar made up of a climatically controlled warehouse. If you spend just a few minutes perusing our website you will discover our advanced search option whereby you can enter country, tipple, red, white, rose etc., grape, style, such as soft and juicy reds or oaky chardonnay, the length you want to keep the wine, and price. This enables a quick and accurate search so you can find the perfect bottle.

Wine Storage Tips
If you feel that you don't have the necessary means to store your wines properly, then we will gladly accommodate you by keeping them in our warehouse which is climatically controlled. However, if you follow some basic storage guidelines you may be able to store them by yourself. When you buy wine, then its ideal location is of course your cellar, which is perfect for laying down a bottle in due to its consistently cool temperature and humidity. However a few simple rules if you don't have a cellar are thus: make sure to lay down the bottles horizontally to ensure the corks don't dry out and in turn let in air, which will spoil the wine. Avoid keeping wine in direct sunlight and try and keep them at a constant temperature; as long as it's above freezing and 18 degrees Celsius, this will be fine as the exact temperature is not as important as it being kept at a constant level. Your storage area should be dark and away from any heat sources such as hot water pipes; common places that we approve of are at the bottom of a cupboard or under the stairs, as insulation and a constant temperature is easily maintained here. Try and use a wine rack if possible, they don’t have to be expensive, and if you buy wine resist taking it out of its box, as cardboard is a decent insulator.
Red, White or Rose
If you happen to be a wine connoisseur then you will know what you want and will easily find it by using our advanced search option. However, for the rest of us, picking out a wine can often be somewhat of a minefield. In the first instance, you can rest assured that every bottle that we offer on our website is of a very good standard, so even if you pick something out at random, you won't be disappointed. Most people when they buy wine will in the majority of cases choose red or white, but our tipples extend to include champagne, rose, port and spirits, so we recommend having a look at some of the less common drops for a refreshing alternative to the norm. Once you have decided upon the wine you want, search our different grapes and track something down that you may not have yet tried or is normally hard to find, such as Garganega or Viognier. Of course if you know what you like then by all means buy wine whose flavour you can trust, as we can guarantee that all of our wines will go down very well with a good meal, some cheese or simply by themselves. Buying wine gifts online can be a lot of fun as you can take your time looking at all the different styles and pick out something really special for you or for your family and friends.
If having followed our tips for storing wine and are still at a loss as to where to store your wine, or perhaps you are scared that someone will open your treasured wine that you are keeping to age in the mistake that it is a normal bottle, then we urge you to consider our virtual cellar.
