Virtual wine reality is now available by the six pack and can be delivered to 19 locations across Alberta, including 18 Sobeys and Safeway Liquor stores in Edmonton, Calgary, Leduc, Sherwood Park, Red Deer, Chestermere and Airdrie, and at Rocky Mountain Wine, Spirits & Beer in Calgary. Not bad for, Virtual Vino, a company that launched in November 2017 with just nine pick-up locations.
The company’s genesis stemmed from a weekend at the Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival, an annual event that started 20 years ago that features (you guessed it) a bounty of food and wine from various producers to be sampled under one roof. From there, an idea blossomed into reality in the form of a store stocked with liquid favourites accessible to people year round.
Out of that store, Virtual Vino was created as a platform where the owners’ exploration of the wine world—days of searching, tasting and negotiating wine deals—could be passed on to the customer by curating a mixed pack of wine in a variety of themes that are always on sale. For customers who love a particular wine (or wines), six packs of those favourites can also be ordered.
For those who can’t muster the energy to get dressed and head to a designated pick up location, Canada Post will ship your wine right to your door (shipping charges apply and recipient will need to show proof of legal drinking age required by province or territory).
But wait, there’s more! Until April 13th, you can use my code Twyla10 to save an additional $10 on your order. It pays to keep reading, right? And, for those looking for even more bargains, you can choose from the selection of “Splurge Worthy Gems” . And, finally! To make things even more attractive, you can sign up for a rewards program. Hey, you’re going to drink wine anyways, you might as well reap the rewards.
