Winecall is an independent retailer of wine, spirits, etc and related accessories. Established in 2009 and based in Melbourne, Winecall operates under an online/internet retail liquor licence.

Winecall has an online store but currently limits products in the store to a small selection of cellar release wines and/or special offers. Products are generally offered via email and/or newlsetter and through tastings. If you would like to receive Winecall’s offers please sign up to the newsletter. There’s no membership or subscription fee, and rather than sending daily or weekly emails we only send newsletters or offers on a semi-regular basis.

As we trade under an online licence, orders and requests are generally preferred via email. Check out our ‘Current Drinking’ page for examples of the types of wines we are enjoying and recommending.
