I had heard of Naked Wines before, visited their website once or twice and even considered purchasing - but had not yet taken the plunge. Well that all changed last week when I was scrolling through my Facebook and a sponsored ad for Naked Wines popped up in my news feed. I clicked on it, filled out a little wine quiz and upon finishing was offered a $50 voucher off a case containing 6 pre-selected wines. There was an option for 6 whites, 6 reds or a mixed case of 3 whites & 3 reds - I chose the mixed. This offer was too good to refuse, I was in!
Originally, the case would have been $75, which is great value for 6 bottles of wine, but with the voucher applied, the case was just $25. 'Great', I thought, 'but how much will shipping set me back?'. I was utterly gobsmacked when the shipping charge to my area was just $4.99 (shipping charges vary depending on your area). So, in total, I paid just $30 for my first case of Naked Wines. I was so excited to receive my delivery, which arrived a super quick 2 days later. The 3 red wines I received were Liz Richardson Cabernet Merlot, Social Sunday Pyrenees Shiraz & R. Paulazzo Shiraz and the 3 whites I received were Boy Meets Girl Sauvignon Blanc Semillon, Wiley Rooster Chardonnay & Grounded Cru Pinot Gris. I'm very happy with the varieties included and will share my thoughts & pics via Facebook & Instagram as I try each one.
To find out more about what Naked Wines is doing for the wine industry visit www.nakedwines.com.au. I just love what they are all about, funding independent wine makers upfront so that they can concentrate on producing amazing wines and they give us sippers a great price. The wine maker wins, the wine lover wins - everyone is happy.
