We may be in a hurry to dash home after our 9-5 runs a little over, still, that does not mean we have to continue sacrificing our beloved after-work wine.
And while heading home to recuperate is definitely the way to go, the reality also is that you don't need to go out to get your hands on a good bottle of vino.
In fact, there are a number of wine delivery services in Australia, all of which can get excellent tipples sent straight to your door without you ever having to leave the couch.
Here, the seven best:
An award-winning start-up based in Melbourne, Vinomofo is a wine-lover's dream. Cutting through the "bow ties and bullshit" that often go along with wine culture, they team up with and vet the world's leading producers to provide a highly curated range of divine wines at members-only discounted prices. You can also join their wine club, which delivers a mixed selection of wines every nine to 12 weeks, depending on your preference.
The Wine Collective
The Wine Collective has an extensive collection of the best wines available in Australia. And if you're like us and find it a little tricky to choose the best wines to add to cart, you can browse their expertly curated wine collections to discover wines that are suited to your taste.
One of the largest online wine retailers in the country, Just Wines was founded in 2012 and sends wines Australia-wide. Designed to ensure you're never disappointed, they pair you with the best wines at their very best prices. It's one of the best ways to ensure you've always got great wines on hand for when friends drop by, that mid-week lasagne, or a long, lazy weekend afternoon.
Currently delivering across most states and suburbs in Australia (minus the Northern Territory, unfortunately!), Naked Wines has an immense range of wines to choose from for all your after working from home needs. They work with the best Aussie & Kiwi winemakers to help give them the freedom to make the wines they want at a fair price for all. The best part? You get a wide range of delicious drops to choose from.
What began as a concept to fuel passion and curiosity in wine and art, Grapeful delivers a carefully curated selection of organic, biodynamic and artisanal wine to your door. With their same-day delivery for those in Melbourne and same-day dispatch to all other states, you'll never be short on excellent grapes.
Named one of 2021's Trusted Brands in Australian Wine Subscriptions, Wine Selectors is set to become your new go-to.

They hand-select their wines via an expert tasting panel for a selection that's both seasonally relevant and progressive, and, recognising that every wine lover's journey is different, you can receive your wine as little or as often as you like, with a schedule tailored to your lifestyle and circumstances.
