The story of
It all started with one simple question...
"How do I get good wine delivered, without needing to already be a wine expert?"
It turned out that was actually quite a difficult question to answer.
Supermarkets didn't have good wine. And specialised wine merchants had great wine, but I needed to know already exactly what I wanted. Plus getting it delivered was a pain.
And so Winepost was born. I wanted to create something for people like me, who want to learn about wine but don't really know where to start and who don't have enough time to go out searching every store in town for the best wine.
Right from the beginning, I wanted to make it as easy as possible to sign up. Just choose how many bottles you want, how often you want them, and tell us about any wines you already know you like. Then we’ll take it from there. Every month or two, you’ll receive a selection of wines delivered to your door and we’ll then ask you to rate them, so we can customise your future deliveries. You can change the number of bottles, frequency of delivery and types of wine anytime, as well as pause or cancel easily. And we’ll include tasting details for each wine you do receive, so you can learn more about what you like and dislike.
Now, to start with I didn't know much about wine. So I teamed up with my business partner and resident wine expert who knows everything there is to know about wine. He handpicks every single delivery, taking into account all of your previous ratings, so each delivery should get better and better. And as we go, you’ll learn more about what wines you like and why, so you’re better equipped to order in restaurants and bars in the future. Or just impress your friends, as I now like to do.
I hope you like it!

Highly recommend Winepost if you’re like me and enjoy a glass every now and then, but have no clue about what to buy.Alex Pate, Twitter
