Drinking wine can be a wonderful experience. Perhaps the most important thing to bear in mind when drinking fine wine is that it’s a living thing that changes over time. The best wines usually go through several phases and reveal their true nature with age.

See that you have appropriately prepped your wine so that it is the proper temperature for drinking. There are varying opinions for what the temperature should be but as a rule of thumb: if it is white, chill the bottle for a few hours before drinking, if it is red serve at room temperature.

At Ideal Wine Company we can arrange delivery of your wine straight to your doorstep. Please see Delivery info on our main website for time and pricing.

When buying wine from you, we will endeavour to make the process as easy and effective as we can. We believe a good wine merchant offers a good quality product at a fair price. We encourage our customers to store their wine in their own personal bonded warehouse account and to research the product, price and company that they deal with.

We aim to be available for our customers at hours suitable for them.
