After a long day of WFH (working from home) and social distancing, you understandably might want a drink. Here at Urban List, we’re all about supporting local businesses, especially during these unprecedented and uncertain times. If you’re in a position to, we encourage you to do the same and continue purchasing from the small businesses that make Christchurch the city it is.
So, if you’re missing your weekly (or daily, we won’t judge) glass of pinot, we’re here to help. We’ve rounded up a list of Christchurch and Canterbury booze purveyors that are currently offering home delivery. Go on, treat yourself to a bottle or two.
Black Estate is offering free delivery throughout Christchurch on any wine purchase (even one bottle), so now’s a great time to support a local business whose wines are thoughtfully made. Order by 11am and you’ll receive the wines by 6pm on the same day. When you order just check the shipping option that says Christchurch City.
Kaiapoi’s own brewery and brewpub Eagle Brewery has an online store allowing you to shop from the comfort of your home. Choose a case of American Pale Ale, Dry Hopped Pilsner or even their Eagle x Dancing Sands Saison and feel good supporting a tight family business. Please note, that during this lockdown period, delivery times may slightly longer than usual.
A winery you can feel amazing about supporting, 27 Seconds donate 100% of their profits to end modern day slavery. They’ve also got arguably the best Riesling in town.
We all need a friend like WineFriend right now and fortunately they’re still open during the lockdown period and delivering to Christchurch. This genius company tests your tastebuds through an online form and then puts together a list of wines to match the results. Stay home, head online and buy a few of their top selections by the bottle to discuss with your mates over Houseparty.
