It might only be the start of the week, but it’s never too early for a wine delivery – particularly when it comes flat-packed and ready to slot conveniently through your letterbox.
Wine lovers with existing subscriptions will know only too well the trials of getting wine delivered to the door – it’s incredibly convenient and ideal for trying new bottles, but if you’re not in when the courier arrives, who knows where that precious delivery will wind up?
So, to solve this tricky dilemma, the clever people at Garçon Wines have invented a flattened bottle of wine, perfectly sized to fit through your letterbox – meaning no more waiting in for deliveries or having to trek to the depot with a ‘sorry we missed you’ card. The 750ml bottles are made from a tough, glass-like plastic, and are slightly taller than your average wine bottle – to ensure there’s still enough space to fit all that goodness – but are around half as thick. They also come in sturdy cardboard boxes as an extra precaution, preventing any messy breakages.
Speaking to The Telegraph, Founder Joe Revell said he launched the service to offer: "no more missed deliveries, no more depot-collection cards, no more waiting around for couriers and no more heading out to the supermarket late at night next time you feel like wine”.
The service launches in February, and subscriptions start from £10 a month. Those who subscribe will be treated to a unique selection of quality vintages, sourced from specially selected winemakers.
With an aptly titled company slogan: “what if the postman delivered happiness?” – this is the hassle-free way to enjoy a glass of red.
