A review of VintageCellars.com.au

Online liquor stores are growing in popularity, and Australia's Vintage Cellars is taking advantage of this growth in the market. Find out about the positive and negative points of this online bottle shop here.

Introduction

Vintage Cellars is a high end drinks retailer, focusing on wine and spirit sales rather than online beer sales. This vintage wine merchants originated in South Australia and is operated by the Westfarmers corporation.
While the company was set up in South Australia, branches have been re-branded and more focus has been placed on the website
- VintageCellars.com.au.
However, there are positive and negative points concerning the website.

Positive points

A wide range of stock
The first thing you will notice when using the Vintage Cellars website is the sheer variety of stock. This is ideal if you are building a wine cellar and you want to fill it with a wine for every occasion. Getting to know about wines for different occasions
Also, while it is aimed at the high end market, there is a lot of support for those that do not know much about wine. You can arrange drinks by region, brand, grape variety and even the sorts of food that they are most suited to. This is a great help if you are ordering wine for a dinner party or other event. Affordable costs for most wines
Perhaps the most important point in Vintage Cellars' favour is the cost. Vintage wine prices start at just $5, and there is a huge selection of low and mid-cost wines. Of course, the prices do go up to around $2000 a bottle for some varieties.

Negative points

Different stock found in different states
Unfortunately, the Vintage Cellar stock varies from state to state. This means if you live in New South Wales, you may not have access to the same varieties of wine than customers living in Queensland, or other Australian states. This can be irritating if you want to put together a comprehensive custom wine cellar.
No overseas shipping/delivery service
Also, Vintage Cellars do not ship overseas, not even to New Zealand. As some of the stock of spirits comes from as far afield as Scotland and Russia, this seems strange. Exclusive wine stocks - no other beverage variety
Finally, if you do not drink wines or spirits, Vintage Cellars will not have anything suitable. Their range excludes beer, cider and soft drinks.
