Merivale launches online bottle shop and delivery service

Sydney hospitality giant Merivale has moved online, launching a beverage delivery service to the Sydney metro area.

Curated by the group’s “master sommeliers”, who pick the drinks for its 70 odd venues including Mr Wong, Totti’s, Fred’s and Est, the Bottle Shop offers wines, beers and spirits. 

The Bottle Shop runs out of Merivale’s retail store in its Ivy Precinct in the CBD. The idea is that if guests have tried something they like at one of their restaurants or bars, they can order it to be delivered to their homes. Each wine comes with a tag naming the sommelier who picked it, and an illustrated guide to what food pairs best with it. 

On the wine side, prices vary from $20 a bottle to $530, and are also available in curated six-packs based on price. There is also a monthly subscription option, where packs of three, six or 12 are delivered on the first of every month. 

Beers range from the common Coopers to smaller brewers like NSW’s Frenchies and Yulli’s. Spirits are mostly Australian, with some whiskey, tequila, digestifs and aperitifs from abroad. 

Shipping is $10 for all orders under $150, and free for all orders over $150.
