The Fine Wine Delivery Company had its modest beginning from our home on Auckland’s North Shore over 10-years ago. Armed with a clear vision and consumed with a passion to succeed I had no idea we would one day become New Zealand’s leading fine wine retailer. It was born over a luncheon in Ponsonby and formalised over a coffee on a boat moored at Westhaven in concert with close friend and founding shareholder Bryan Chitham who remains a shareholder today. Incorporated on 23 June 1997 our first official trading day was 1 August. I vividly remember hosting a tasting for around sixty willing friends of friends securing $5,000 worth of orders that night and feeling like we had just won lotto. The next day I was a one man band having to invoice the wine, manually process credit card payments, order in the wine, despatch it and do the banking, that’s how good business’s start. The next twelve months were exciting and crammed with innovation. We purchased tables, seats and a covered trailer and would Read more »

  • Below are some good online wine purveyors I've dealt with very successfully over the years. They have provided well-curated wine selections at good prices, processed purchases well, and shipped efficiently (though not all internationally). I'm throwing their names out with multiple aims in mind:to see if anyone has good or bad experiences to sha... Read More

  • - possibly the #1 Faux Pas for Wine Dining is to bring a wine that is available on the venues wine list and pay the Cork fee, and it did happen tonight. Belle Gloss Clark and Telephone. Read More

  • Hi, I am an accidental wine enthusiast. As part of a major remodeling project including our family room I revived my interest and enjoyment of wine. Our family room was redone using dark hickory planking and the room has a short wall next to our fireplace. This wall has always presented a challenge to make use of the space. I researched and sear... Read More

  • Hi guys, Maybe I am just being super paranoid like my husband thinks but I am slowly starting to fill my little humble cellar with barolos one by one. Unfortunately I live on quite a busy street and my cellar is an italian style basement downstairs in my apartment building. Construction has been going on, on and off for about 2 months and I am a...

  • In the Bay Area and in the greater LA area, the choices are pretty huge, but that doesn't mean everything is easily available--more on that below. BevMo is headquartered here, and its ancestry can be traced back to the beginnings of a wine program at CostPlus and to Safeway's launch of Liquor Barn.  Short version is that Steve Boone more or less...

  • @ EMARK, Your shopping habits mirror mine.  Wine and spirits are sold at supermarkets here in Washington. The addition of hard alcohol was voted in this year so I find this a convenient place to pick up some of my favorite wines on a regular basis. I too find Costco a nice place to pickup that unusual stray that I am curious about. I did belong ... Read More

  • 2013 brought new mega wine/beer/cigar stores to the Portland, Or./Vancouver Wa. area. We went from going from little wine shops with limited selections to 2 stores with over 2500 different wines each.This is nice because you can plan ahead, check your wine rack or cellar and go on line to pick your selections. Once you've determined what you wan... Read More

  • So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot.  Here's my opening proposal:  We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly.  This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend...

  • What is it with me and TCA???   A few days ago, I opened up a solid winner, of which I had a case.  All have been fine so far, but then cork taint reared it's ugly head.  OK, it happens.  Well, tonight I opened  a different wine from the same winery- faint TCA, but enough to throw the wine off.  This was a $38 bottle of pinot, nonetheless.   I h...
