Sometimes it can be so inconvenient to have to go searching the stores for the right wine. If you live in parts of the world where it's cold outside, it can be even more of a hassle. Of course, you can always subscribe to weekly wine delivered to your door, but who's ever home during the postal hours to receive that package?
Thankfully, Metro News reports that Garcon Wines of London has presented us a solution to these very real problems. Finally, there is now a bottle of wine that can be safely deposited in your mail slot. Don't worry, the bottle is plastic, so it won't break when it hits the floor, and just because it's flat doesn't mean there's less wine in there than in the standard bottle. The experts at Garcon have made the bottles longer so that they can hold the 25 ounces that we are so accustomed to drinking (sometimes in one sitting, but only when no one's watching).
According to Garcon's website, the bottles are mailbox friendly as well, so don't worry if that's what you're using instead of a mail slot in your door. The wines are carefully selected from all over the world, and therefore are intended to be of good quality, and they even stack nicely so that you aren't taking up too much space with your new collection. Very convenient indeed!
The media is buzzing about this, and why shouldn't they be? Food & Wine, Bloomberg, Beverage Daily and so many more have invited the new company for interviews to talk about this fine new product. Everyone's excited!
The best part of all of this is that the subscription is only $12 per month. Of course, these aren't wines that we'd want to store in the cellar or anything like that. Keep in mind that with convenience and low prices, there have to be sacrifices. Garcon says to drink it within 6 to 12 months of receiving your bottle. I don't think there will be any problem there, though.
Wine delivery services are expected to begin in March of 2017. Let's hope they'll deliver to other countries!
