For people leading busy lives, having to take time out of a tight schedule to make sure all the errands for the week get done can quickly become something they dread. The matter is complicated further if they’re entertaining guests on their only night off, or if they’re expected to bring a token gift along to a dinner party they must attend. Happily, there are services and retailers out there willing and able to deliver goods straight to the doors of their customers; connoisseurs can even obtain their favourite bottles of wine without having to maneuver around the hours of their local LCBO or Wine Rack.
Through retailers like Wine Online, hard-working folks can enjoy the arrival of prized selections in as little as 1-4 business days. The company’s globe-trotters travel to the world’s most renowned and remote regions to bring back excellent wines you’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. Lovers of red wine for example can order the Legado del Moncayo by Isaac Fernandez Selección, a 2016 vintage from the Campo de Borja region of Spain. This wine was a dubbed a “best buy” by Wine Enthusiast and rightly so; with its assertive red berry liqueur and floral aromas,laced with allspice and white pepper, it makes for a nose full of complexity. It is sweetened by vibrant raspberry and cherry flavours accompanied by a zesty minerality. This bottle brings elegance and boldness together with its slow-building tannins.
Alternatively, invite a glass of Southern Rhone into your home and enjoy it with friends after a long work week. The Ventoux Rouge by Domaine de Cristia, vintage 2016, is a perfect blend of grapes from this region. Made from Grenache and Syrah grapes, this wine boasts full body. Because the grapes grow at high altitudes and are influenced by cooler temperatures, this wine has terroir, texture and finesse. The aromas are delicate and pleasant while the flavour is intense and powerful.
For a taste of Italy to compliment a much-anticipated evening spent cooking, try the SilleryOltrepò Pavese by Frecciarossa, vintage 2016 from Lombardy Italy. This wine is an elegant white created from hand picked Pinot Nero grapes that had their skins strategically removed – offering a richness to this selection that is incomparable. It is also well-balanced, finishing long, fruity, complex and it leaves drinkers with a punchy acidity glass after glass. Consider placing an order if you’d like the best white wines delivered to your door — after all, good taste and convenience make excellent partners.
Why not treat yourself at the end of each week to an order of fine and intricate wine? As a busy person, you deserve it. Drink it over the weekend with someone special or save it for an occasion and let the wine develop in the bottle. Allow the old wine run to take on a different form, one more conducive to your lifestyle; simply order online, and have it delivered to your home in a matter of days because choosing a fantastic bottle of wine should feel like a pleasure, not just another chore to check off your to-do list.
