WineDirect Collaborates with Wine Concierge Delivery Service Vinum 55
Connecting Wineries to Their Ideal Consumer Through Concierge DTC Delivery Services in AZ & TXv

 

Industry leader WineDirect has partnered with wine concierge delivery specialist, Vinum 55, to provide an unparalleled fulfillment service, with white-glove and temperature-controlled delivery to consumers in metropolitan areas of Arizona and Texas.

 

WineDirect and Vinum 55: A Perfect Pairing

 

This new affiliation between WineDirect and Vinum 55 will open the door for wineries to provide premium temp-controlled delivery services to consumers in Arizona and Texas (and additional service areas as Vinum 55 expands later in 2022). Both companies have shared core values of enabling elevated consumer experiences and are pleased to celebrate this new collaboration that will delight wine lovers and wineries alike.

 

Industry leader in speed, personalization, and accuracy, WineDirect Fulfillment is available to US wineries. Bicoastal warehouses enable wineries to reach 90% of US wine consumers within 2 days via ground shipping. With this partnership, these best-in-class commitments are extended through the final mile of delivery, ensuring wines are received in a condition that preserves its integrity and value, as well an extra sense of care for the consumer’s experience.

Vinum 55’s delivery services are a class above most standard courier services. Their white-glove approach is executed by wine- trained professionals, and all packages are kept at 55 degrees during the entire duration of transit. Vinum 55 executes timely and clear communication to ensure consumer satisfaction by scheduling personalized delivery appointments.

This new collaboration is one that is very timely. In 2020, the wine industry experienced explosive growth in DTC shipping. In 2021 there was a return toward normalcy, but with more buyers utilizing DTC wine shipping than ever before, the category is only expected to continue to grow. Final-mile delivery services that exceed expectations is another way wineries can ensure the highest levels of consumer satisfaction to build lasting relationships.

WineDirect Fulfillment clients can learn more about how to use Vinum 55’s services by reaching out to their Account Managers or by emailing csoperations@winedirect.com.
