Desperate times call for desperate (and large) measures (of wine). But with the supermarket shelves depleted and many people self-isolating and unable to get to the shops at all, wine delivery services are more needed than ever.

With the new government-advised lockdown measures implemented for the next three weeks, it’s no wonder we’re reaching for a well-deserved glass of vino at the end of a day of working from home, homeschooling children or just getting through the day in this new normal.

So how best to ensure you can still have your tipple at the end of the day? With these wine delivery services, of course! While it may not have occurred to you pre-coronavirus, ordering in your wine is now the most sensible and safest way to buy it. So where to order from? We’ve rounded up all the best places to quench your wine-thirst.

The best wine delivery services 2020

Aldi

While you can’t shop groceries on Aldi‘s website, you can buy wine and alcohol to be delivered direct to your door. At the same inexpensive prices we’ve come to expect from the budget supermarket, you can get red, white and rose as well as sparkling options, prosecco and a wide range of spirits – including their renowned Infusionist range of gins. Due to a huge surge in demand, Aldi have restricted orders to a 12 bottle maximum and delivery could take anywhere between three to ten days. The good news is, delivery is free when you spend over £20.

M&S

M&S have launched a wine delivery service to make it even safer and easier for you to stock up on your favourite tipple without having to head out to the supermarket. Purchase by the case or the bottle, and prosecco lovers will love that a case of six is just £60, plus there’s free delivery on all orders over £100.

Winebuyers

An online members club, Winebuyers connects you to vineyards and wine merchants from over 40 countries, providing you with a wide variety of bottles to choose from – over 30,000 to be precise. There’s also a fantastic blog full of useful information, from food pairings to wine trends, so you’ll be a connoisseur in no time.

Majestic Wine

While all of Majestic Wine‘s physical stores have had to close, their online orders are still very much open for business. You can still order online just as before, but the Click & Collect option is not available. It’s the perfect place to find those extra special and interesting bottles that you wouldn’t find on the supermarket shelf.

Berry Bros and Rudd

As Britain’s oldest wine and spirits merchant, it would take more than a pandemic to stop Berry Bros and Rudd from trading – from the same St James’ store in London since 1968, no less! There’s currently 20 per cent off their Own Selection favourites and delivery is free for orders over £200.

Laithwaite’s Wine

The UK’s largest home delivery wine merchant, Laithwaite’s still has that personable, family-run feel – its founder Tony Laithwaite proudly knows all of his 450 winemakers personally. Due to the company’s popularity, they’re currently closed to new orders as they make their way through the unprecedented deluge of existing orders they’ve received, but they’ve promised to be back open for business again very soon.

Naked Wines

An award-winning online wine club, Naked Wines gets its members the best wholesale prices from independent winemakers all over the world. Although closed to new joiners at the moment, keep an eye on their website as they’ll start selling to new customers and non-Angels when they have the capacity to serve everyone – and when they do, make sure to take the quick survey first to get your £30 voucher.

Dynamic Vines

Looking for wine delivery services for premium organic or biodynamic wine? Dynamic Vines is your place – they work with wine merchants who employ sustainable practices in the vineyard and minimal intervention in the cellar, with a focus on European wines.

Honest Grapes

They’re still delivering nationwide and offer free standard deliver on orders over £75.

Savage Vines
