We will all remember the year 2020 for the global pandemic that took so much from us. We had great plans for the year, with new gins landing weekly, rum on the rise, new wine producers knocking on our door and the excitement of a summer of football pushing large trade orders! But it wasn’t to be! Instead, Taste has been delivering wine to homes up and down Huddersfield and finding a new way of working!
Usually, we use our van for trade deliveries to the many restaurants and pubs we supply, but the last 12 weeks it has been stocked high with red, white, rose and sparkling wines going to domestic homes throughout Huddersfield! Customers have been ordering by phone or through the website and at 1pm each day the van is loaded and the deliveries begin. Many of our deliveries have been to customers who have been self-isolating or unable to get out like they normally would.
This service has proved incredibly popular, with repeat customers on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis calling up for the new “usual” or trying something totally new. We have also amassed over 100 5 star reviews on TrustPilot
Because we have this new demand and loyalty, we are continuing this delivery service for the foreseeable future. If you would like wine, gins, cigars, whiskey or anything else we stock delivering to home, just call 01484 426226 and we will be ready to help. If you order before 1pm you can benefit from same-day delivery where we have the stock available.
But, now we are open again! Things are a little different. We are using strict social distancing rules to ensure customers remain at the recommended distance from one another and our staff. This sometimes means customers waiting outside, or needing to browse our red wine collection a little longer than planned, but it is all working well so far. The next thing, we will be getting ready for the hospitality trade re-opening (hopefully in July) and helping supply all our restaurants and pubs with quality wines, spirits and beers.
So that is an update from Taste Fine Wines. We hope all our customers, new and old, are coping through lockdown and are able to come out the other side in a positive state. We know we would have found it more difficult if it wasn’t for the loyalty of our customers and people choosing to stay local. So thank you everyone, and remember, stay safe.
