Welcome to Winecall!
Winecall started as a result of a combination of a general passion for wine (and other good booze), being exposed to family wine-related businesses, and various friends seeking suggestions about what to drink. Often, after sharing newfound wines, friends would ask if I could source some for them. At other times they would simply ask me to get extra of whatever I was next buying. It was certainly a compliment to have others rely on your judgement. Eventually, in 2009 fresh back from an inspirational trip to Italy, Spain, Portugal and France, a retail licence was obtained and Winecall was established.
Many of those same friends (and now other customers) still seek advice about wine suggestions. They may make a specific request for a particular wine, or they may make a general purchase request – such as ‘I need another dozen reds’. Some customers have a pre-determined understanding regarding acceptable price points (for example, price range, or average price per bottle), styles and/or varieties (based on discussions, previous favourites, etc) and quantity of each wine (again, for example, whether they are looking for 12 different bottles, or a nominated quantity, say 2, 3, 4 or 6 bottles of each wine). Otherwise we will establish and agree on these parameters per request.
Whatever the request, price points, styles, gifts, drink now, for cellaring, etc, we are happy to help.
