Get Wines Direct – How it Works
Buying wine online is really easy with Get Wines Direct. Their online shop offers on average 200 or more great red wine deals, white wine, sparkling wine, mixed dozen and rare labels. To find your wine, you can either search by name or browse through following categories:
- Style (e.g. shiraz, sauvignon blanc, champagne…)
- Price (e.g. Under $10, $10-$20, $20-$30…)
- Region (e.g. Barossa Valley, Margaret River, France)
- Vintage (e.g. 2005, 2006, 2007…)
- Brand (e.g. 1838 Reserve, Baby Doll…)
- Popular (e.g. Penfolds Bin 707, Chandon Brut 2008…)
- Value for Money: One thing that I love about Get Wines Direct is that you will always find amazing discounts from Get Wines Direct with 20% – 50% below the retail price. I don’t think I can find any other wine wholesalers that can match this discount prices.
- Only $9 per case for delivery fees: One thing that I always check when it comes to buying wine online, is delivery fees. Why? Because delivery fee is often not included, and it can cost as much as another bottle of wine! With Get Wines Direct, they will deliver anywhere in Australia for only $9 a case. That’s good.
- Make your own label design: This is not advertised as much, but you can actually make personalised wine labels for only $3 per bottle! Yep, you can make wine tailored to your special day and I find them truly are a magnificent addition to any occasion without the lavish price tag.
- Marketing Calls: People have expressed that they have received number of telemarketing calls from Get Wines Direct (follow up sales). As much as I love getting good wine deals, no one likes telemarketers! Make sure you ask them to be removed from their database for the purpose of telemarketing. I always block every telemarketing calls I get on my mobile.

Dark red colour with purple highlights. Rich diversity of black fruit mixed with spicy notes (black pepper). Explosive fruit on the palate followed by strong and a well-balanced finish. Long aftertaste. The bouquet is fine and complex. Châteauneuf-du-Pape has remarkably ripe tannin and a full-bodied flavour indicating excellent ageing potential.
