The web sites on this page will help you to find food and wine suppliers and will also help you to compare the cost of your ordinary grocery shopping.
Several wine merchants will let you order wine and other drinks online and have cases delivered. Some of them are clubs, that you join and take a regular case of your choice every three months or so. In some instances the wine is delivered by default and you have to advise the merchant in advance if you do not want it. With others you order what you want, when you want and you won't get any wine unless you order it yourself. In most cases there is no commitment to buy anything after your first order, even if you join a club, but there are exceptions where you agree to buy at least a minimum number of cases each year.
Majestic will mix cases of wine and spirits to your choice and deliver free, so the drink is all you pay for. They also sell and deliver beers and other drinks but only as an addition to a case of wine or spirits. It is possible to order smaller quantities for delivery through a gift scheme, but then the price includes a delivery charge.
WineHound specialise in high quality wines and champagne. They will only deliver in full cases (12 bottles) but you can mix your own. Delivery is within 7 days and free if your order is over £100, otherwise they charge £5.95.
Clearwater Hampers supply and deliver food only or food with wine hampers including fruit baskets. A huge variety of contents is possible typically including the less common treats. There are classic combinations for most tastes and occasions or you can compose your own hamper from a list of food items. Hampers can be ordered from under £30. Clearwater list delivery prices against the hamper.
