From the moment the site pops up in your browser you can feel the class and quality of WineDirect. The site is the on-line arm of Hailsham Cellars, a UK Wine Merchant based in Hailsham, East Sussex.
We’re passionate about wine and believe that knowing more about where the wines come from, the grape varieties and wine styles, can enhance your wine drinking experience and embolden you to experiment with the wide selection of wine styles and grape varieties on our list. That’s why we’ve added a lot of information about wine on the site in the Wine & Food and Wine Companion sections and why we are selling great wine books in our Books section.
The wine range is wide reaching – they list 35 wines from often overlooked Argentina, 100 wines from ever-popular Australia and 69 from New Zealand. But it is not just the New World at WineDirect – Spain with a list of 54 wines, Italy (187) and the regions of France (258) hold many interesting wines.
Prices are generally in the mid-range although more expensive wines are of course listed. Minimum purchase is 6 bottles.
Pre-mixed cases, and various regular wine club offerings complete the picture.
One thing I noticed is the embracing of customer feed-back they ask that their customers send in wine reviews and recipes for great dishes to accompany wine for publication on the site. Very Web 2.0!
