They said we were crazy….That no one would use it….That it could not be done….But we believed otherwise and New Yorkers agreed! We built an online wine and spirits store, eVintner.com, with a focus on free delivery in Manhattan. The goal from day one has become a reality as we are now proudly offering free 1hr delivery between Battery Park and 125th St ($25.00 minimum order required). Here are some answers to some commonly asked questions:
How can you guys pull this off?
With a dedicated and diligent staff. We have some of the most friendly and efficient deliverers in the city. They deal with the chaos and elements so you can get that extra brief filed or sit back and relax once the daily grind is over. We pay our delivery personel above the industry standard and therefore tips are not required (though our guys appreciate them if offered).
What can I order?
We have a nice selection of wines ranging from your everyday value magnum to the more esoteric Locations by winemaker Dave Phinney or Grignolino by Heitz Cellars. Then there’s the Spirits. We carry your must have vodkas and gins as well as 100% artisan-made products like the Mezcales De Leyenda Mezcal line or Balcones whisky. We are constantly updating our inventory with new products and always love to try and make special requests happen.
What time can I order and still expect my 1hr delivery?
This is very new to us so we have not set permanent deadlines and will try to deliver each order we receive. Due to state regulation orders placed after 10pm Monday thru Saturday and 8pm on Sunday will have to be delivered the next day. We appologize for any inconvenience this may cause you but we believe that our delivery hours will be some of the latest anywhere. Also, we don’t open until 11am so for you 24/7 partiers don’t expect your order before noon.
We want to thank you for your time and hope we can bring you a bottle or two! All suggestions are always welcomed.
There’s no shortage of wine stores on the web. So what’s our deal? Evintner makes sure to single out wines that are a little off the beaten path, hand selected by our crack staff (that’s us) and delivered at a price that’s right. We’re all about the personal touch - let us know what you’re thinking here, on our blog, our on Twitter at @evintner.
